Hello and welcome to my blog today:  I am going to share with you cards that I have just sent out to some of my team members for promotions or being the top two in Sales for August.  I thought that it was only fitting to use the Stamp Set All the Good Things which is a very motivational set from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  Here’s a look at my cards.  

I feel in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw it at Onstage in Atalanta back in April.  Which was the first time I got a chance to lay eyes on this wonderful publication.  This is just one of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I love koi and since they are a symbols of love and friendship in Japan; It was the perfect choice for my team Recognition cards this month.  Because, I love my team and we are building lasting friendships with every communication we share, since my team members are all miles away from where I live.  Actually they all live in other states, which makes my Team Facebook Group and email our primary forms of contact.  Here’s a look at this distinktive stamp set

You may be wondering what is a distinktive stamp.  Well, its a new type of stamps that Stampin’ Up! has came out with this year that features a more photographic look.  These stamps are a Red Rubber stamp; which is a big step forward for stamp creation.  

Team Promotion: 

I had one team member that promoted to the title of Silver this month.  Congratulations to Debby for hitting this new level in your Stampin’ Up! business.  This title opens up a whole new world for her.  Here’s a look at the card Debby will be getting in the mail very soon.  

Debby’s card was created using the new Silver Foil-Edged Cards in the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  It was very perfect choice since Debby promoted to the same title.  I continued on with the silver theme  by embossing the koi and well everything with Silver embossing powder.  I wanted this card to feel really special for her since she has achieved this great honor and accomplishment.  I am really proud of her, and I know that she will go far.  

Top In Team Sales in August 

For my top two sales achievers in August they got a shout out during our team Facebook Live meeting and both will be getting this card that was created using the Gold Foil-Edged Cards (on the same square in the Holiday Catalog as the silver).  I used the same stamp set but instead of embossing I stamped the images with plain old ink and they look equally as attractive as the embossed version.  Well I will let you be the judge.  

I think that Kathy and Pam will both love these cards when they come in the mail this week.  Kathy was the #1 in Sales for August and Pam was #2, big achievements that both have deserved.  

For each of the cards I stamped the Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart on the matching envelopes.  It’s a beautiful moto and I was really happy to get this stamp set back in the summer when it was offered as part of the Share What You Love Early Release.  It was the perfect addition to my team recognition cards and it made me happy to see it on the envelopes especially going to three team members that are well deserved.
