Join my Ink Pad Hostess Club!

New Ink Pad Club

Have you seen or used the new ink pads yet?  They are awesome!


  • Provide better ink coverage for your stamps!
  • Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
  • Create wonderfully solid images. The Firm Foam releases more ink onto your rubber stamp than the felt pads. When using the Firm Foam pad, your stamp will get an even, solid covering of ink that you may not have been able to achieve with the felt pads. Please note: if you are using the ink pad frequently you may need to re-ink your Firm Foam pad more often.
  • Have a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off!
  • Come with color name labels in all four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)–just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the side of the pad for easy identification!
  • Use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist!
  • Are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!

About the Ink pad club:

I need 6 members for a 6 month club that costs $49 total per month (unless you live outside of my local area and I will add a flat rate shipping cost each month)

You will receive 8 ink pads each month, and hostess benefits one month

Hostess benefits include:

  • $40 in merchandise of your choice
  • 2 packages of in color cardstock
  • 1 dazzling details in original or Cherry Cobbler (your choice)

Ink pad savings of nearly $43 vs. ordering ink pads separately

Hostess extras valued at nearly $60

= Over $100 in savings!

Make a Cake

Stampin’ Up likes to reward their demonstrators and this stamp set and designer paper was part of a great gift for recruiting a demonstrator during Sale-a-bration. They are now offerring this as a bonus to anyone who signs up in June as a demonstrator with the $99 starter kit along with a great digital kit for My Digital Studio!

This is the free make and take at my Catalog Kickoff party this Saturday at 1pm. There will be a great doorprize for coming, bringing a guest and/or making a purchase. I’m also selling my retired items with a BOGO deal, buy a retired item at retail price and get the same amount in new catalog merchandise free! (Tax and Shipping will be added). Must come to my new catalog party to get the deals!

Stamps: Make a Cake

Paper: Midnight Muse, Patio Party DSP, Whisper White

Comfort Cafe Bookmark

This is a fun corner bookmark (fits in the top corner of your page).  The directions to make this was in our demonstrator magazine Stampin’ Success in March.  I used the edgelits to curve the end for a fancier look.  Mary Fish had a great video tutorial, so click her name to go see it!

Stamps: Kindness Matters

Paper: Cajun Craze, Comfort Cafe DSP, Very Vanilla

Ink: Cajun Craze

Accessories: Edgelits Adorning Accents, 3/4″ circle punch, 1″ circle punch, Postage stamp punch, 1″ square punch, victoria crochet trim

Be of Good Cheer Fancy Favor

I really love the Fancy Favor Die, its probably my favorite box/bag to make with the big shot. The fun scallopy edge at the top is probably my favorite part.  And its easy to dress up with some designer paper. This is the new Be of Good Cheer DSP and it is my favorite Christmas paper that we’ve had yet.

Paper: Gumball Green, Be of Good Cheer DSP

Accessories: Fancy Favor Bigz XL die & Big Shot, Slot punch (retired), Cherry Cobbler scalloped dot ribbon.

Summer Strawberries – PP98

Best of Everything Summer Strawberries

I did a challenge!  I’ve been trying to do more of these to get me stamping for more than just workshops 🙂  I love to stamp and a little inspiration goes a long way.  Summer to me screams picnics and strawberries growing so I used the striped embossing folder, brayered it with Riding hood red ink and sent my card through the big shot twice.  This is the first time I’ve attempted the gingham and I think I need a bit more practice but it came out okay.

Stamps:  Best of Everything, Perfect Punches

Paper: Whisper White, Gumball Green, Riding Hood Red

Ink: Riding Hood Red, Gumball Green

Accessories: Adorning Accents Edgelits & Embossing folders, Striped Embossing Folder, Wide Oval Punch, Designer label framelits, Stitched Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon, Brights Glimmer Brads
