Thankful for my Stampin’ Sisters

When I joined Stampin’ Up! 4 years ago I never dreamed how much it would enrich my life. Stampin’ Up! is much more than a company with great papercrafting products. It is a community filled with amazing people with the biggest hearts. I am ever so grateful for the kindness and support from my “Stampin’ Sisters” following the loss of a dear friend. I have been busy making thank you cards this weekend.

Stampin Up Painted Harvest Thank You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This clean and simple card is made with some of my favorite things. I absolutely love the Painted Harvest Bundle in the Holiday Catalog!  The good news is the Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch will carry over after the holiday catalog retires on January 2nd.  However, you will no longer be able to purchase it as a bundle (and save 10%) after Jan. 2nd! (If you don’t already own this set, you can save even more by purchasing it tomorrow during the 24 hours of Free shipping!)

The base of my card is my favorite go to for thank you cards, Stampin’ Up! Note Cards and Envelopes! Biggest bang for your buck (20 note cards & envelopes for $6)! I embossed the envelope flap and very vanilla layer on my card with the Layered Leaves embossing folder (another one of my favorite items). I adhered the burlap ribbon with a strip of Tear & Tape and punched two leaves from Old Olive cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink, punched out with the Pretty Label Punch, and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Quick & easy with a little added texture!

Here are some beautiful flowers, cards, and gifts I received from team members and friends.

I am so blessed and thankful. This thing we do…creating cards and gifts…makes a difference! It’s so much more than I ever imagined! Our cards bring comfort and joy to the lives of others. I hope you find some time today to create. And if you ever want to become part of the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator community, I would love to welcome you to join this amazing team. Think about it…you are already buying the products, why not get them at a discount and make some wonderful new friends along the way?!  Seriously, Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to join and just buy for yourself if you want. You don’t have to have classes or sell anything if you don’t want to. You can just purchase your starter kit (Choose $125 in product of your choice for $99) and try it out for the first 4 months. There’s no penalty if you don’t buy anything else, you don’t have to send anything back, no one is going to pressure you or harass you. Over 90% of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators sign up just for the discount. If you want to build a business, we can help you with that. You decide what you want…Join our private FB groups (and get involved in the chats or just browse and see what’s going on), be the first to see and try out new product, get together with other demonstrators, watch training webinars, participate in contests to win free product, …and so much more!  I have to say joining Stampin’ Up! is one of the best decisions I ever made!
