I know that I've been wishy washy with direct selling companies~~sold for TAC, then SU, then TAC, then SU, then CTMH but after thinking about it and seeing the new catalog (oh my goodness!) I decided that SU just feels like home. Although I don't use 100% SU products, I do use several products on every card~~ from cardstock to inks, to embellishments, punches, etc. and I do adore their stamps so why not! Plus they have changed many of their policies that limited me in the past.
I know many, if not most, of my friends already sell SU or have a demo, but if you don't....hope you'll consider me! :) I will have an online website once I get signed up so I'll share that when the time comes.
I thought it would be fun to have one day a week devoted to sharing something Stampin' Up so after thinking about my schedule and such, I came up with Stampin' Up Sunday's!! I hope you'll join me each Sunday to see one or a few projects using SU goodies. Everything might not be 100% current at first but I'll work on that!
I struggle so much with cards that don't require coloring so I plan to focus on those type cards to help me improve and feel more comfortable with them. To help me get started this week I looked at some challenges and decided to try the current Color Throwdown's color challenge. Those that know me, know I usually run away from color challenges but I'm trying to turn over a new leaf! LOL!
Here's what I came up with~once I started I just kept going!
On this first card I had a hard time getting the stamps/punch lined up but then Kristie shared this awesome "pin" with me so now my stamps are marked and ready to go from now on!
My second card I was too lazy to get my stamp-a-ma-jig down to line up the sentiment properly so it's a little crooked but I didn't think it turned out too bad.
My third card is probably my favorite. I took the reverse punched cardstock and made a mask--sponged on the Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky and voila', a pretty background.
Thanks for stopping by!! I must admit I had so much fun with these cards and found that I didn't struggle as much as I use to so maybe there's hope for me yet!
If all else fails, add pink, sparkle and a butterfly!
