SHEL’S STAMPIN’ NEWS…………………………………..JUNE 2011
Well June is finally here! The Summer Mini Catalog is active and there are some AWESOME stamp sets in it, as well as GORGEOUS designer series papers suitable for men or women!
The Strength and Hope Campaign is Stampin’ Up’s way of helping find a cure for breast cancer. They will donate $2.00 for every Strength and Hope stamp set sold to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This is a beautiful set and a very worthy cause. Check it out on the back page of the Summer Mini.
And of course that means I can order my new Idea Book and Catalogue! Of course I will be ordering some for all my club girls as well.
If you are not a member of one of my clubs, and would like to purchase a catalogue, they are $11.95 each plus shipping.
I cannot wait to see the new offerings that Stampin Up has for us! I personally am hoping for a broader selection of punches and dies. And of course the new In Colors- I cannot wait to see what they will be this year! Can you tell I am just a little bit excited???!!
Also this year, the Definitely Decorative will be included in the main catalog. And the Hostess Benefits Program has been revamped. Lots of new stuff happening!
Ok, now for the bad news….whenever Stampin Up puts out a new Idea Book and Catalogue, of course some of the products are carried over to the new catalogue, and some is retired. Attached is the list of what is RETIRING. This means that once their stock is gone….it is gone forever.
So if there is something on the list that you want, go to my blog www.shelscreativecorner and click the shop now logo. It will take you to my Stampin Up website and again click the shop now logo in the top right corner. This is a live service so you will only be able to order what is available. If you do not have a credit card to order online, contact me directly 232-7744 and I will order for you.
I have a special running this month- all cardstock is 10% off the regular price. This includes 12 x 12 or 8.5 x 11. This special is only available through me, you must contact me directly to order. Since Stampin Up has just announced that alot of their 12 x 12 cardstock is on the retired list as they are revamping their selections in the new catalog coming July 1, this will be available only if they have stock....so order early gals!
I have attached a tutorial for you to try. Can’t wait to see what you create. Don’t forget to check out my blog for samples, tutorials, ideas, tip and tricks for your papercrafting. www.shelscreativecorner.blogspot.com.

Faux Silk Technique
A while ago I saw this card on someone's blog when I was blog surfing, and was instantly drawn to it. The contrast of the black and pink is amazing. For the life of me I cannot remember whose blog I saw this on.
The card is very simple and easy to make!
What you need:
Cardstock (trimmed to the size you want for your card)
1. Cut a piece of tissue paper, a bit bigger than your cardstock.
2. Stamp image on tissue paper. Then color it in and crumple
into a ball. Carefully open tissue paper.
3. Cover cardstock with glue using your glue stick.
4. Flatten tissue paper and adhere to your cardstock, smoothing it as you
put it on.
5. Trim edges of tissue paper.
Easy! Why don't you give it a try, and show me what you have done.
