Glitter, Glimmer and a Giveaway

IMG_7714

CLEAN TABLES!!! I decided to invite the stampers to my stamp studio instead of stamping in the living room for the Card Buffet yesterday. Set up is easier for me since I don’t have to make trips up the stairs with supply tubs.

I do get preparty jitters when I bring people into the studio since I need to CLEAR THE TABLES and put supplies away so we have room to stamp together. The clearing was a little easier since the carpets had been cleaned and I had not fully loaded the tables with piles that threaten to topple themselves. 🙂

As I was wiping the tables to remove every speck of stray glitter from our glimmer sheets, I was thinking that I need to re-home the package of silver glimmer I have in house. What better way to re-home and get it to you so you can use it on your holiday cards than a giveway!

To receive a package of silver glimmer paper on me, your online party sales need to be at least $300 by 9pm cst on November 27th. It can be a party of 1 (that’s just you, insert smiling emoji). Or you can invite your friends to order using your host code that I will provide to you that you share with your friends. Online Extravaganza sales are November 20-27th so you can take advantage of those sales as well.

All online orders will qualify towards my Online Shopper Rewards program too! 

Please use the Contact button above to request your online host code. If you are ready to shop, please go to my online store here.

Thank You for helping me re-home my glimmer paper!

Super Awesome non-glitter lover Shirley

P.S. I do love our glimmer sheets since the glitter stays pretty well on the sheets. The glimmer sheets can also be cut with punches or framelits or even sponged with ink to add color. It’s the loose glitter that I would rather avoid!

Holiday Card Buffet – November Session

I love gingerbread images because I grew up with Pillsbury dough boy marketing. The association with sweet treats and joyful giggles means afternoon baking with delicious results! So I had to get the gingerbread stamp set and coordinating punch to feature on a card with the Candy Cane Lane designer series paper. My first design with these products is the card on the left. The reindeer card in the next photo uses the same punch and stamp set too.

The following photos share designs available during the Sunday, November 6th, Holiday Card Buffet. Would you like to join us? You pick which greeting cards to create and how many of each from a line up of the designs at a Card Buffet.

Pre-order your cards from the photos below or select them at the event. Pre-ordering insures you receive the designs you like since card kits are limited to what I have in stock. Supplies for each card are tucked inside the mailing envelopes creating a card kit so you can easily stamp and assemble the card.

Order from left to right, gingerbread, snowflake flurry, poinsettia.
