Stamp-A-Stack Sassy Salutations Washi Tape

I like using Washi Tape. It's easy to rip and you can move it if you don't like where you put it. All of the Washi Tape from the 2014-2015 Catalog is now on the Retired List, so hopefully they're just coming out with new patterns for the new catalog and not doing away with it entirely!

Colors: Pool Party, Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White

Stamp-A-Stack B.Y.O.P. Gift Card Enclosures

I like to give Gift Cards, but sometimes it's hard to come up with a cute way to package them. Did you know Stampin' Up! has Gift Card Enclosure Packs? I bet a lot of people don't and that's why they ended up on the Retiring List! They're on page 194 of the 2014-2015 Catalog, top left corner. You get 10 of them for $5.95. I decided to use them for the Stamp-A-Stack, along with another option.

Here's my finished Gift Card Enclosure:

Here it is open. It has little slots to hold a gift card.

Here's another version, made with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlit and Kraft Cardstock:

And what it looks like inside:

 Colors: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Whisper White

Stamp-A-Stack Birthday Surprise Vellum and Staples

This card uses another stamp set that is retiring, Birthday Surprise. I thought this was a fun way to use it. Staples are the easiest way to attach Vellum and not worry about having adhesive show through it!

lots of presents (above) or a variety of birthday images (below)

Balloon Bash Stamp Share For Leaders Swap

 Sunday was the Spring Stamp Share For Leaders meeting. This is a group of Demonstrators in MN that are actively building their Stampin' Up! businesses. Some of the top SU! demonstrators are in this group, so I am very proud I can be a part of it! In addition to training and sharing business tips and ideas, we always do a swap. These are the cards I made:
