Marker/Cardstock Club???

Recently Updated 




Does your Stampin’ Up! ® “Wish List” include the 48 Stampin’ Write Markers with the storage case (pg. 194 – 2010 catalog or pg. 202 – 2011 new catalog)?  Do you wonder how you can financially “swing it”?  Well, here’s a way to get the full set of markers with the storage case plus cardstock in all 48 colors without going into your grocery money!

I will team you up with three other stamp-a-holics to form a Marker/Cardstock Club.  Each of you will be the hostess for a “M/C Club Workshop” on an agreed upon schedule (i.e. every month or every other month) and order the complete set of markers with the storage case plus one package of assorted cardstock from each of the color groupings.  The cost per person is $52.43 for each workshop – this includes shipping and tax.

Payment will be due to me by the 15th of each month.  I will be responsible for placing the order and distributing the markers.

The hostess (each month) keeps the case, one set of markers with matching cardstock and, because the workshop meets the $150 minimum, also receives all the hostess gifts of a workshop.  The other three each get a set of markers with matching cardstock. 

Here’s what you’ll have at the end of 4 workshops:

  • In Color Markers (10 colors)
  • In Color Assorted Cardstock (40 sheets, 4 each in 10 colors)
  • Brights Collection Markers (10 colors)
  • Brights Collection Assorted Cardstock (20 sheets, 2 each in 10 colors)
  • Subtles Collection Markers (10 colors)
  • Subtles Collection Assorted Cardstock (20 sheets, 2 each in 10 colors)
  • Regals Collection Markers (10 colors)
  • Regals Collection Assorted Cardstock (20 sheets, 2 each in 10 colors)
  • Nuetrals Collection Markers (8 colors)
  • Nuetrals Collection Assorted Cardstock (20 sheets, 2 each in 10 colors)
  • $25 in FREE Hostess dollars to spend on anything in the NEW catalog!

Here’s a breakdown of what hostess A, B, C and D will receive each month.

Flower Bouquet!!!

Ooooo la la!  Isn't this pretty???  Wish I could take credit for it....but I can't!  I received this beauty in the mail from my upline Jill Olsen!  Do you have your Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch yet???  If not - this one should put you right over the edge!!!


It's a GREAT way to use the Designer Series Paper Stacks too - look at all the different patterns and layers - you know how I LOVE layers!  Here's a close up of that bow - isn't it perfect? 

It's super easy - here's how you make it.  Hold the ribbon in a "cancer ribbon" pattern...


Bring the loop down like this....

Bunch up the middle and open up a brad and put the prongs around the area held by my thumb - waaaa laaaa!


Here are some of the products used to make Jill's card:

Another Sneak Peek!

Here's another Sneak Peek card for you...using the Just Add Cake DSP (shown below).  I was playing around the other day, trying to come up with a swap card....  I love these colors together - Peach Parfait and Poppy bright and cheerful!  Once again - I used the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Flower's super!!!  I used it for the bow on the top of the present and also as a layer behind the "wish big" greeting - it fits perfectly behind the 1" Circle Punch!!!

The "wish big" in this greeting is from the NEW Pennant Parade stamp set - available on July 1st!!!

Just Add Cake DSP:


And now.....drum roll....the NEW In-Colors!!!!  I can hardly wait to start playing with these!

 I have to share something funny with you.  As I was creating this card...I grabbed a Poppy Parade card that was laying on my know, just to lay my images on the back of it so I could see if that was the color I wanted to go with.  Well in the process of my excitement...I forgot that this was a card and I actually stamped the greeting on it and glued all my layers down.  Imagine my surprise when I picked it up to ooo and aaaa over it and found this:
