Beautiful Day Birthday Card with BLOG CANDY: GDP0130

Hey friends! Happy Monday to you. Today marks 9 years as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for me! I can't believe it. The years have flown by in a blink and I'm still loving this incredible job. I'm so so so lucky that I chose to sign up 9 years ago. I didn't plan on this becoming my full time job, but I'm sure glad that it's evolved into this. I couldn't be happier with my crafty job. 

Are you ready to celebrate with me? Today for my VIP customers I'll be giving away 9 stamp sets! Not one of my VIPs yet? Find out how you can join me HERE

Today's card is for the Global Design Project sketch challenge. 
I switched up the placement of things a little (of course, I just can't follow the rules). 
The Beautiful Day Stamp Set is a favourite. You're going to see a lot of this one. And did you see the scrapbook page I shared on Saturday using this set? Check it out HERE

I coloured these flowers the same way I did the ones on the scrapbook page, with the Brusho Crystal Colours. I cannot get enough of this stuff! Give it a try if you haven't already. It's super simple to use, and the colours are so vibrant and beautiful. 

Don't forget to pop on by my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop and place your $50 order using the March Host Code to join my group of VIP customers. 

And I'd love to have you join me in this wonderful stamping adventure. Wouldn't it be fun if in 9 years we were celebrating your 9 year stamping anniversary and my 18th, together?

I'm going to have fun all day celebrating my Stampin' Up! Anniversary, and I'd like to give one lucky Canadian blog commenter this free stamp set! Make sure you leave me a comment on this blog post. I'll announce a winner later this week and mail it anywhere in Canada.

Beautiful Day Scrapbook Page w/ Brusho

Hello friends! Did you miss me? Things have been a little upside down for us here in the Okamitsu house. Life has been hard. But I'm happy to say that I feel like things have settled a little bit and I'm finding joy in stamping, quilting, and coffee breaks. Hahaha! No seriously though, I don't think my love of coffee will ever dissipate. 

Enough about life happenings, lets chat scrapbooking. Do you scrapbook? I'm a 'sometimes' scrapbooker, but I sure love it. And I love that we have memories documented, and not just stored on our devices until the end of time. 

The stamp set I've used for this layout of my husband is called Beautiful Day. You'll find this one in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue. Aren't these blossoms stunning?!
I've used the Brusho Crystal Colours here for some really bright and bold flowers. The Brusho is so concentrated that you can get incredibly saturated and rich colour when using it. I love it. Plus it's soooooo easy to use. I simply stamped my images on Watercolour Paper with Basic Black Archival Ink, let it dry, and then sprayed on a bunch of water with my Stampin' Spritzer. Then it's time to just sprinkle on some Brusho and watch it go to work. If you haven't tried it yet, you definitely need to. You won't be disappointed.  

When you're ready to place your order your supplies, make sure you use the monthly host code so I can add you to my VIP group AND send you my monthly tutorial bundle and gift. 
You can read all about my customer rewards program HERE. I'd love to welcome you to my stamping circle.
