When a demonstrator reaches a million dollars in sales one of the many perks they get is to work with Stampin’ Up’s artists to create a stamp set which is then posted in the catalog with the demonstrators name and with a special 1,000,000 emblem. Demonstrator Connie Stewart recently reached this milestone and I knew right away I wanted to purchase her fun stamp set, Nothing’s Better Than. It’s on page 91 in the catalog.
There’s not much better than coffee, cookies, chocolate, and cocktails, right? Especially lately with Covid, with staying home, having vacations canceled, and so much more.
I have been making some cards this past week with this set and having fun with it.
The coffee cup and the top cookie are popped up with dimensionals. The & sign is part of the Playful Alphabet dies.
This card started with the red cardstock that was on my desk and it just evolved. I didn’t really have a plan. The base is actually white cardstock with just a 1-1/2″ flap on the left side. I embossed a 1-1/4″ real red piece and attached it to the left flap. Then I wrapped the polka dot ribbon around and tied in a bow. Next I attached the embossed real red cardstock to the back side of the flap. It covers the ribbon on the inside of the card.
The coffee cup, chocolates, and cookie are all popped up with dimensionals and have a bit of Wink of Stella on them. Another one of my new stamp sets is A Grand Kid and it had the perfect sentiments to turn this card into a birthday card for my granddaughter.
This is my sweet Sofia who will be getting this card for her birthday. Her birthday isn’t until November (she’ll be 18!) so now all I have to do is remember that I have already made it. I’m not one to be ahead of the game, rather I find myself last minute getting a special card done. I have friends who already have their Christmas cards done for this year. You know who you are!
