My Annual Hostess Appreciation was well attended, and one of the highlights of the day are the cards my hostesses bring for display! The past two years I have made my retired stamps available for my hostesses to "purchase" using "Stampin' Bucks" they earn by coming, bringing their catalog, bringing a card to display, making an order, booking a party, and/or signing up to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in my group of "Yes, Ma'am!" Stampers. This beauty was made by Amy Galloway, who is a Longaberger Consultant. I sent her a link to this pattern a while back, I just knew it was right up her alley! She has already modified it to make it more Longaberger authentic, and has plans to make square one to match a current basket! She is such a great artist!
These next two cards were made by Angie Lisk! I love how she combined the pumpkins and "Happy Harvest" from the current Loads of Love with the wagon from the retired Favorite Teddy Bear! Everyone at the event were impressed and intrigued by the way she used the retired Wrought Iron Corner Slot punch to make the center medallion!
Becky Kellerman brought this cute card using the retired "I'm Here!" set!
Christy Sullivan brought this striking yellow and black creation using the retired "Polka Dot & Paisley" set!
Shirley Quarry used the new set, "Upsy Daisy" to create this beautiful card. If I didn't already have this set, I would have to get it while it is on sale this month at 15% off after seeing her card!
Jennifer Bolin use the new set, "Just Jawing" and our cool new Designer Paper, "Ghostly Greetings" to create this awesome card! You can't really see it in the pic, but there's dazzling diamonds all over the skull!
Cindy Lisk created these three cards! Cindy takes her stamps with her on vacation and creates such cute cards!
These two cards were created by a mother-daughter stampin' team, Donna Walker & Jaye Shanks! They used the same set, but came up with different looks! It never hurts to share stamps!
Sharon Pizanowski created these beautys with the stamp set, "Amazing"!
Last but not least, Bryanna Kehrer brought this great card for display. She made it at one of my "Yes, Ma'am's!", Kia Kehrer's events! Just beautiful!
As you can see, my stampers are all GREAT STAMPERS! Thanks so much, ladies, for making the day so much fun! I can't wait to see what you bring next year!</
