Another Halloween Toxic Treat Card

This week on HSS we have a technique challenge – Crayon Rubbed Embossing!  I had never done this technique before and decided to use a black crayon instead of white to create an eerie spooky background…kind of grungy and kind of vintage.  I love this technique!  I used sponge daubers to sponge Raspberry Ripple, Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade to create an eerie background for my black embossed witch.

See all the wonderful projects by our talented design team.  I hope you’re inspired by this very fun technique.

NEW Catalog Kick-Off Party!

Are you ready for this?!  It’s that time again for a NEW Stampin’ Up! Catalog, and along with that I  am having a Catalog Kick-Off Party I am so excited!!!  Lets get into some details…

This AMAZING event will be held on Saturday July 16th from 5-8PM.  The evening will start off with some great eats & treats.  This night is all about spoiling my customers.   You will have the opportunity to get crafty with make-n-take projects.  Bring your camera because there will be plenty of projects on display for your inspiration.  There will be a Chinese Auction that will give you the chance to win some FREE retired items.

What’s a Chinese Auction?  Each person will receive tickets as they check into the event and those tickets will assist you in winning free stuff.  Each item up for auction will have a bag in front of it, and if you want that item you place a ticket in the bag.  Then at 7:30 pm the auction closes and we draw for the winners of all the items.

What kind of items will be in the auction? There will be lots of items.  Here are a few….retired stamp sets, embellishment items, paper, storage items, ribbon,  and gift certificates just to name a few.

How can I get tickets? You will be able to buy tickets for $0.25 each OR you can earn them for FREE.Here’s how!

*bringing a card or papercraft project to post on the idea display board
*by RSVPing for this event by JULY 9th via email
*for signing up for a class/event (pre-paying to reserve your spot)


*joining a Hostess Club
*by booking a workshop for July, Aug., or Sept.
*by bringing a friend that has not been to any previous event
*for being a previous hostess
*for every $25 order placed that evening (excluding sh/tx)
Things to remember… You will want to bring your calendar to this event so you are able to sign up for classes and select a workshop date that night!  PLEASE RSVP so that I have the proper amount of Make-n-Take projects and food for all.  Oh, I almost forgot the most important part… you get your copy of the NEW Idea Book & Catalog that night.  Here is the list of those who have a catalog set aside for them:








Debby D.

Linda G.



If you don’t see your name on this list I do have a few catalogs left- BUT I only have 16 on hand so once they are gone you will have to wait until the others come in.  So if you want to be sure you go home with a catalog send me an email NOW to RSVP for this event.  You will be able get your copy the evening of this event!!!!
