Another Reason to Smile

Card made with Reason to Smile the July Stampin'UP! Promotional set.
I really like this image from the "Reason to Smile" stamp set.  In case you missed the announcement, this is a promotional set available only during July. The name of the stamp set describes the promotion - the set is only $5, which is certainly a "reason to smile". 

How do you get this set for the $5 price?  A purchase of $50 or more during July qualifies you to purchase this set.  What a great gesture from Stampin'UP!  A wonderful way to say thank-you to all our great customers.

Why do I like this image?  I think because of how pretty it looks with the 2-step stamping.  The dark outline of the petals is one stamp and the softer lighter solid image is a 2nd stamp that was stamped on top of the first image. See another sample with this set.  I just really like how it looks.  I guess you could say it gives me a "reason to smile"! (sorry, could not resist the bad pun).

This will be a short post as I'm busy getting ready for the Stamp-a-Stack this Sunday or Monday.  Are you local (i.e. Dane County/Madison, WI area)?  We'd love to have you join us.  You can register HERE to attend. Just click RSVP for either session 1 or session 2.

Reason to Smile Stampin'Up! July Promotional SetWe will be using the Reason to Smile stamp set at the Stamp-a-Stack although we will not be making this card. But do you notice the background on the card?  It was done with the Diagonal Plate for Stampin'UP!'s Simply Scored tool. We will be using the Simply Scored tool on 4 of the 5 cards.  And everyone who attends will get a print out from me showing more than 25 different score patterns you can make with this tool.

And here's another "Reason to Smile" - your purchase of both the Simply Scored tool and the optional Diagonal Plate qualifies you to get this beautiful stamp set for only $5.  You can shop now on-line.  After your order totals at least $50 you can enter the number for the stamp set.
