Team Promotions with the GDP 083

Hi There,

So I thought I would share some achievements that have occurred in my team recently. The Global Design Project (GDP) theme was really apt for these celebrations, so here is the theme form GDP:

So I only have a small team & two of them have promoted in the last month, so to congratulate them I wanted to do something a little special with the cards. So embossing powder caught my eye as I wanted to emphasise the promotion. So here is the card I created for my team member who has just promoted to Bronze Elite:

I now also have someone who is the same level as me, which is a little strange. But he is doing so well, so here is what I did for my Silver promoter:

I wanted the card to have a two tone effect so I inked versemark on an area of the 'Watercolour Wash' background stamp & then inked with 'Cajun Craze' & 'Smoky Slate', then I added 'Copper' & 'Silver' embossing powder. Here is a close up:

The sentiment needed to pop against both of the backgrounds & so I got my hands on the new 'Eastern Medallions Framelits Dies' which you can get your hands a month before the new catalogue is launched in June with 2 exclusive bundles available during May. So I used 'Peekaboo Peach' against the silver & a new in colour 'Lemon Lime Twist'. Here is the silver one close up, using the same die I just didn't put it into a circle:

I then just added some rhinestones & a sentiment using the lovely 'Gorgeous Birthday' stamp set which is coming out in the new catalogue with a great 'Pretty Label' punch.

Thanks for stopping by & happy stamping,

I really enjoyed creating this project & I've used some sneak peeks that will be coming out in January when the Spring/Summer catalogue goes live. The first picture is a my work in progress of the design before I was happy. I used the lovely Petal Passion suite:

Go For Greece Blog Hop - March 2018

Evening all,
Hope you are well.
I'm popping by on a blog hop with the amazing 'Go For Greece' training group. Since October I've been part of an awesome training programme to gain knowledge & in site in how to achieve the incentive trip that Stampin' Up! has to offer.

Kylie Bertucci gives some amazing training to demonstrators world wide! I've been part of some other groups that has been started by her like 'Random Acts of Kindness' where cards go to random people within the group from all over the world. I've recently been in the amazing 'Love it Chop it' group where you learn to cut that paper you have around the house!! haha! Well I was inspired to cut some paper in preparation for the 'Onstage event' that Stampin' Up! run for demonstrators & so this is what I created:

Do you ever go through phases of using paper? I sometimes get so excited about using stamp sets that I sometimes forget about the paper. But then I'…

I then picked out one of the lovely black designer series paper from the Petal Passion suite & then I drew a blank slightly. I was rummaging through all my photos & believe me I have tons - even with running & going to a monthly scrapbooking class!! 
I had left my scrapbooking album at home so couldn't remember what I had already scrapped so that really frus…
