Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for December.  I'm so glad you are here.  You might have just come from Toni's blog.  You might just be starting.  It doesn't matter, please visit us all.  You'll want these samples for the new Occasions catalog and the Sale-a-Bration brochure.

It sure is an exciting time for Stampin' Up!  Sale-a-Bration is a great time to earn free products just from buying something you wanted to buy anyway.  It's also a fantastic time to join the Stampin' Up! and the Luv 2 Create family!

We learned at OnStage about 3 kinds of stampers, the beginner, the casual stamper, and the avid stamper.  Today I have 3 cards for you so that you have one at each level.  I'm using the Lasting Lily stamp set on page 19 of the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.  This is a fantastic set with 16 stamps in it.  For this reason it's one of those available with a $100 purchase.  It's one of the Distinktive sets which means the stamps shows lots of detail without a lot of work!

Lasting Lily Beginner by Jo Anne Hewins

This is the card for a beginner.  It's so classically beautiful that I think most anyone would love to stamp it!  I used one of the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.  These are found on page 193 of the Annual Catalog.  Twenty card bases with envelopes are only $6.50.  The size is 3 1/2 x 5.

The stem and the leaf are two different stamps.  Stamp them in Granny Apple Green.

The lily is stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  This ink is dark and will cover up some of the stem.  That's all right.

The saying is stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  Look at this card with a little of the Regals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Trace around the flap of the envelope and cut it out.  Glue.

The next card is for the casual stamper.  This stamper has a lot of fun stamping and has begun a collection of supplies.  They probably do not stamp every day.

Lasting Lily occasional stamper by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a regular sized card made from a piece of Granny Apple Green card stock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Fold at 4 1/4.

The dotted paper is from the Sale-a-Bration pack called Botanical Butterfly.  It measures 4 x 5 1/4.

Stamp the large lily and the smaller one in Rich Razzleberry on a piece of 2 1/2 x 4 Whisper White card stock.  Add the stems in Granny Apple Green.  For the smaller flower, I used the stem with a little leaf.  It ended up being covered by the label.  Mount this on a piece of Basic Black card stock that is 2 5/8 x 4 1/8.  Adhere to the right side of the card.

The ribbon here is from page 201 of the Annual Catalog.  It is the 1/4" Velvet Ribbon in Rich Razzleberry.  Cut two pieces that are about 4" long each.  Cross on the card.

The saying is stamped on Whisper White in Rich Razzleberry.  Punch with the Tailored Tag punch.  Add the label with dimensionals.  Add these so they will not be on the ribbon!

Lasting Lily SAB by Jo Anne Hewins

This card is for the avid stamper.  That's me!  The avid stamper wants everything and does not mind if a card takes some time to make.  It's the self satisfaction when the card is done.  Hopefully we do share our cards!

The black mat is cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  The Botanical Butterfly paper is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  

The flowers (Rich Razzleberry) and the stems and leaves (Granny Apple Green) are all stamped on Whisper White card stock and then cut out by hand.  This is a good way to use up some of your scraps.  I love to cut!

The larger flowers are glued to the card as well as the stems for them.  The smaller flower and stem and more leaves are placed on dimensionals.  

The saying is done the same as on the prior card.

Lasting Lily Trio of cards by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the trio of cards.  All are lovely!  I think you are going to need the Lasting Lily stamp set.  I know you are going to need the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  Both of these are free choices when purchasing product from Stampin' Up!

Thanks so much for joining us on the NC Demo Blog Hop.  Next is Tracie.  She always has such wonderful ideas!

Very good display of the 3 types of stampers, I really need to get around to doing this! And I love this stamp set and your color choices. Unfortunately, I need to send a sympathy card this week and I would love to case your ideas.

Thanks, Frances. This stamp set practically stamps itself.
