My New Stampin’ Up! Recognition Pin Board

I’m so happy that I got this task done!!  I ran out of room on my pretty board about a year ago, and finally bought a new larger board to display my Recognition Pins from Stampin’ Up!

Here is my new Recognition Pin board!!

 

Patty's Stampin' Up! Recognition Pin Board with room to grow! Trips, Sales, Leadership, anniversaries, convention pins and more! Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 1995. www.PattyStamps.com

 

I left room to add more Incentive Trip pins and Sales Milestone Pins at the top!  The pins at the bottom are older style recognition pins from 2003 to 2015. 

My Stampin’ Up! demonstrator journey began in June 1995, so I have been a demonstrator for almost 26 years!  I LOVE creating and sharing my papercrafting projects with you each day here on my blog, on social media, through my newsletters and when possible, in person 🙂  I recently surpassed the $2.3 million sales milestone, and earned my 19th incentive trip last fall! 

This was the board I had used for about 10 years, and just ran out of space!

Thank you to each of you who share this fun journey with me each day!!  I always appreciate your sweet comments!!

Elegantly Said Card featuring Stampin’ Write Markers

Do you ever have one of those stamp sets that just kind of scares you a little?  And by scares you, I mean, you are just not sure how to use it or you feel overwhelmed?  I wasn’t sure how to use all the pieces in this set until I created this Elegantly Said card and was able to combine several of the stamps in the set on this card!  I was thrilled with the outcome!!  I showed it to my friend Tammy and she loved it! yay!

Direct to Rubber Technique

Above:  I used 3 Stampin’ Write Markers to add color to the rubber (called “direct to rubber”) and then stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock.  For the flower on the left, I used Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler markers for the flowers, and Evening Evergreen for the leaves. For the flower on the right, I I used Calypso Coral and Cherry Cobbler markers for the direct to rubber coloring.  

Below: After stamping onto the cardstock, I used the same markers and drew a little bit of detail onto the stamped image (on the Vanilla cardstock).  I also fussy cut them with my paper snips.

The background of my card is a thick Very Vanilla base, with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of designer paper from the Simply Elegant 12×12 designer paper.  I Sponged some Basic Gray ink on the edges.  The 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ very vanilla piece has the big flourish image stamped twice in Basic Gray (but I stamped off first).

To create the flower “bouquet”, I layered the 2 fussy cut floral images, and then ended up stamping more of the flowers to fussy cut and add to the grouping.  

The final touches were a strip of the Simply Elegant designer paper and a vanilla strip stamped with Happy Anniversary in Cherry Cobbler ink and a smattering of the Cherry Cobbler rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone package!
