When Life Gives You Lemons……

I am terrified to publish this post.  I am for the first time ever, using NON Stampin’ UP! product.  I have never ventured out of using Stampin’ UP! product on my cards.  I have had a mindset for so long that if I did that it would reflect negatively in my orders online.  I fear that people will see something I do hear and go buy from somewhere else.  THEN IT HIT ME.  You are probably already doing that! LOL.  The truth is I don’t shop exclusively at one store for all my food, or all my clothes, or all my shoes.  And before Stampin’ UP! I shopped all over for card stock, and other items for scrapbooking. 

Here I am stepping out in faith.  Believing that by using other products, other stuff that I LOVE by the way, doesn’t lessen my loyalty or love for Stampin’ UP!.  Instead it enhances what products I DO use from Stampin’ UP! Right?  (please tell me I am right)

Here we go – I used some adorable lemonade stamp sets from Stamps of Life and paired them with Stampin’ UP! A Happy Thing stamp set.  You can get the A Happy Thing stamp set for FREE when you order $50 in product.  Sale A Bration is a fun time of the year when you get free stuff just for ordering stuff you would be ordering anyway 🙂

Here’s my confessional, uh, I mean video.  🙂

  1. Wendy, I loved the card. I mix stamps all the time. Especially when Stampin’ Up doesn’t have exactly the sentiment I need. I love you videos. They provide great inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hello Brave Girl! Stampin’ Up is a wonderful company with excellent, high quality products… they are however a lot like the Titanic and it’s hard to turn that baby when the tides change… hence, you’re right, I think that most of us mix their products with others because there are some really great others. Your cards are beautiful, I very much doubt you’re going to Stampin’ Up jail and you should be proud of your work because it’s amazing 🙂

  3. I love the card and I mix stamps all the time too. Actually I think that you might sell some of the lemon stamps after people see this card . The 2 stamps go together so well. Thanks for sharing.
