Smile! A Gorgeous Grunge Card for my team!

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Smile! A Gorgeous Grunge Card for my team!

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Smile! A Gorgeous Grunge Card for my team! close up

I have a remarkably talented team of demonstrators, and I love to chat about them to anyone who’ll listen.

A whole load of them promoted recently, including some very very new demos in France who joined just a few weeks ago!

I wanted to make those ladies a little batch of cards that was unique to their promotion month, and this is it!

It’s definitely a card that you can’t deny comes from me, and I hope they’ll look at them fondly and know that they make me Smile every day!

My colours, because they’re all stunning, are Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Smoky Slate and of course, Whisper White.

Gorgeous Grunge and my Petite Petals and Itty Bitty Accents favourites came out to play, and I added that huge Smile from the So You stamp set that’s tucked at the back of the Spring Catalogue. Go and take a look, it’s just beautiful and the font is stunning on all the little words too!

So congratulations to my fabulous team for their many and frequent promotions, you rock my world too!

  4. Ahh!! there it is, that fabulous, versatile Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, perfect to add some great detail to any type of card. And to think I wrinkle my nose at it when it first came out thinking “Goodness, this is ugly!” But now, I love, love it, I’m so glad I finally purchased it.
    Your card is beautiful Sam, I love it when you add clusters of pretty little flowers to your layout and design, this card truly makes you smile.
    Thank you so much for sharing and have a wonderful Easter weekend with your family.
