What's Washi?

Several of my customers asked me what to do with washi tape - so I went on a hunt (thanks, Pinterest) to see what I could find!  This was the first card that we made at May's classes..  We used the now retired In Colors and coordinating washi tape. Super simple and you can make a card for just about any occasion by using the Crazy About You stamp set  and Hello You Thinlits.  We also used washi tape to decorate the inside of each card. 
CONTACT ME if you would like information about my stamp classes.  My next classes will be June 24 -26.  I'd love to have you join us!

Bingo Make & Takes

Earlier this month we played Bingo, Stampin' Up!  You can see all the fun we had BY CLICKING HERE.  Everyone was able to make two cards like these.  They chose the colors - but had the option to create the cards they wanted.
Everyone was encouraged to stamp their envelopes as well as the inside of the card.  These cards were made with the new In Colors from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  The card stock portion of the card was embossed, and the Flirty Flamingo (pink) card shows that anyone can make a mistake!  I forgot to stamp the greeting first when making this sample card. 
Here are two more variations.  The card on the right uses two colors of card stock.  I love the monochromatic look of the other cards, but wanted to show other options. 
This was another option - making the card horizontal.

I am currently planning to have a Birthday Bingo Bash on Saturday morning, July 16.  I am still working out the details so check back later for details and to sign up. 

My next stamp classes will be June 24 - 26.  I have space available if you would like to join the fun.

Friday night was Bingo night - Stampin' Up! style.  We started with a delicious dinner and fun conversation.
Here is special gift I made for the stampers who prepaid on time!  I wanted to show how much I appreciate everyone who made the commitment to support  my Stampin' Up!  business!  The "paint can" contained monogrammed note cards, sticky notes & pen,  ribbon, and chocolate, of course!
Everyone received one of these  adorable clips.   My team member and Bingo co-host,  Anna, made these using a retired Stampin' Up! die, brand new Designer Series Paper (Affectionately Yours) and jumbo paper clips from a big box store.
Below are the door prizes for the night.  All you had to do was show up and have your name selected to get your choice of one of these items.  People who prepaid on time had their name entered twice!  Hint,hint: it pays to prepay!
Here are the Bingo players concentrating on the game.
Nancy was the first winner.  If I remember correctly, she won the first game the last time we played Bingo! Maybe it was the extra FREE bingo card that won the game for her.  She received an extra card for prepaying by the deadline.  (Do you see a theme here?) This time we let our winners pick the prize they wanted, and Nancy picked the prize everyone had their eyes on -  all 5 ink pads in the new In Colors!
Our second game had two winners. We use to choose the ultimate winner, which was Judy.  She picked the new In Color Stampin' Write markers and a package of 12x12 card stock.
 Diane picked a consolation prize from the door prizes - and chose a retired stamp set, "Best of Shelli."
After two games of Bingo. we took a break to stamp.  Everyone made their choice of two cards below, using the new In Colors ink, card stock, and ribbon.

Then, they made two of this cute card using the new stamp set, Pop of Paradise.
 Stampers concentrating on their work:
This is Margaret who is a friend and Stampin' Up! demonstrator who wanted to observe BINGO in preparation for hosting her first Bingo Stampin' Up! event on Sunday!
After our make and takes, we played three more games of Bingo.  Debbie won the Playful Palette designer series paper stack and the coordinating card stock.

Lisa won Flirty Flamingo card stock, stamp pad, ink refill, and ribbon.  This is sure to be the most popular of the new In Colors.
And our grand prize jack pot winner was Judy.  She was the first to cover her card, winning the $50 Stampin' Up! gift certificate - to choose her own prize(s) from the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! annual catalog.

Everyone was asking for the date of the next bingo I guess they had a good time!  I'm thinking that Birthday Bingo sounds like a fun way to celebrate my birthday in July.  I'll get working on that right away!  Hope to see more of you the next time.  More players = even more prizes and bigger jackpot!
