A Good Egg Tic Tac Treat for Easter for #MyStampingFriends using #StampinUp


A Good Egg Tic Tac Treat
#StampinUp #MyStampingFriends Rose-Ellen Eastman

Good Morning My Stamping Friends,

Today I'm sharing my 3D swap I made in mid January for a Leadership event I attended in Lancing, MI. I'm calling this one A Good Egg Tic Tac Treat. Isn't he the cutest?  I know he's going to be a hit when my daughters hand them out to friends at school, or leave one on the teacher's desk.

I started with Stampin' Up! Soft Sky for the base that was 2 x 8-1/2 inches and scored it at just under 4 inches from each side. The Tic Tac container is 5/8 of an inch wide so scoring it that way allowed the bottom to be flat with the Tic Tac container inside. Then I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch on each end and punched a 1 inch circle just above the fold mark on one side. I used the Owl Builder punch and Daffodil Delight card stock for the chick, trimmed off the 'ears' and added a 'foot' as a feather to the top of his head. His eyes and beak came from the same punch and his wings were started out as a 1 inch circle and I used the circle punch to trim two wings from the circle. The cracked egg at the bottom is from the Frozen Treats Framelit dies and the sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration item called Hey, Chick (which can be yours for FREE with a $50 purchase - more info on that below). and finished it off with some white 1/8 grosgrain ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack. I got the mini packs of Tic Tacs at my local Dollar Tree store and used a glue dot on the back to hold it in place.

If you make one of these Good Egg Tic Tac Treats, post a photo on my Facebook Page called My Stamping Friends so I can see your version.  

A list of supplies is at the bottom of this post, and during Sale-A-Bration promotion (until March 31, 2017) if you spend $50 on ANY product at my online store using this month's HOSTESS CODE 6GXAJGH9 you'll get to choose one of our Sale-A-Bration products from HERE or HERE COMPLETELY FREE.

Hope you have a fantastic week,
Rose-Ellen

P.S. Here are some more photos from the Leadership event. We had such a fun time.

Can't buy it all?? SHARE IT ALL!! 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Share #MyStampingFriends

#MyStampingFriends Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Share


Hi there My Stamping Friends,

I saw a quote this morning that said "Old Ways Don't Open New Doors", and I'm planning on opening some new doors this year. A new Stampin' Up! year and a new Stampin' Up! catalog is almost upon us so I'm adding some 'new ways' to my business, starting with my first New Catalog Paper Share.

Check out the details of the 2016-2017 Designer Series Paper Share:

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator there are certain rules I have to follow when ordering so there will be a process to follow for the 2016-2017 Designer Series Paper Share. 

First you have to contact me via email, with "2016-2017 Paper Share" in the subject line, at StampingWithRose-Ellen@cox.net to reserve your share (or two shares if you want!).

When the share reservations are full I'll send you a Paypal invoice*(if you don't use Paypal, please see below).  

Then I will place the first order for the paper shares on June 1 counting in everyone that paid their Paypal invoice .  As the shares fill I will place more orders. 

After the paper arrives and I cut it and package it for shipping, I expect to have the shares ready to mail by June 15-17th. 

BONUS:  Reserve your share before June 1st and I will add some BONUS designer paper in your box.

For the 2016-2017 paper share you will get:
  • 6x6 squares of all of the designs in the 13 new packs of Designer Series Paper

  • 6x6 squares of all the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper
  • 6x6 squares of the brand new Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate

That's a minimum of 112 pieces of Designer Series Paper! 

All this for just $29 plus $6.45 USPS Flat Rate Priority. NO SHIPPING CHARGES IF YOU PICK UP YOUR PAPER SHARE. If you'd like a different shipping option, please email me.

~~~ BONUS ~~~  If you reserve your paper share and pay your invoice before June 1st I will ADD in a FREE BONUS SAMPLING 6x6 squares of some of our Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.


* No Paypal Account? NO WORRIES!!  You can pay your Paypal invoice with a credit card or debit card. Or just contact me and we will work out payment.
