Five Years!

August 27th, 2008

five-year-pin-jami-aug-08-custom-2.jpgWow – check it out!  I got my Stampin’ Up! 5 Year pin in the mail today!  (ummm…it’s no where near this big in real life!  LOL!)  I can hardly believe I’ve been a Demonstrator for five years.  I originally just signed up to be a hobby Demo and get the discount, but immediately found the joy of teaching classes and very soon got a Club going.  I quickly discovered that while being a Stampin’ Up! Demo was never going to provide an *income* it could definitley pay for my obsession hobby of stamping.  I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of my customers for your business and support over the last five years!

Besides my pin, I also receieved a UPS delivery of a big Stampin’ box which included my new catty order.  I couldn’t wait to bust out Humor in High Heels because I’ve had an idea floating around in my head using Anna Wight’s Whipper Snapper set Hocus Pocus.  AND as it turned out my idea worked with today’s Sketch Challenge on SCS!  Cool!


Whether you’re a good witch

or a bad witch,

it’s all about the shoes!


*snort*  My original idea was to just stamp the legs/shoes once, but when I saw the sketch a lightbulb went on to have two sets of legs.  I colored them with Copic markers and then used a clear glaze pen on the shoes.  There’s orange stickles around the eggplant frame.  The dp also came in my SU order today – Ghostly Greetings – it has a lot of fun patterns.  Oh and one more new thing – the black hemp twine.  I love the rough texture and I think it will be great with lots of Halloween projects.  The card turned out a little *busy* I think and if I had it to do over I might try using Kiwi cardstock on the right half rather than the 2nd patterned paper…but we’ll never know. LOL!



stamps: Humor in High Heels, Whipper Snapper Hocus Pocus

paper: Elegant Eggplant, basic Black, white, Ghostly Greetings dp

other:  orange stickles, decorative scissors, ornage eyelets, black hemp twine, copic markers, clear glaze pen

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to join me Friday morning for another one of Taylor’s challenges. Oh and I’ve been asked if I have a complete list of Copic matches to SU colors.  In fact, I do but at the moment it’s just a hand-written list.  I’ll try to work on getting it typed into a chart sometime soon.  I’ll be sure to share here as soon as I do.
