Hello Stampers and Fellow Demonstrators:

The big day has arrived!  The SUDSOL Blog Tour is going strong.  If you're starting here, Welcome!  You will find lots of awesome projects and lots of information about SUDSOL as you hop through the blogs.
I have been a member of SUDSOL for about 13 years.  This is an awesome organization for Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  If you have an up line, this site will enhance your knowledge about all things stamping and Stampin' Up!  If you don't have an up line, then SUDSOL can be that missing gap in your stamping knowledge and business.  Some of the things that SUDSOL provides are:
  • Business Builder Tasks
  • StamPINboard to post and look at thousands of stamping projects.
  • Tutorials--written and illustrated AND videos
  • Business Articles
  • Techniques
  • Sharing and Caring
Today, with my first project, I am focusing on a technique you can find on SUDSOL:  Rock and Roll.  I chose the Birthday Fiesta stamp set, Fiesta Time Framelits, and Festive Birthday DSP.  Everything about this suite of products just screams HAPPY!  Here's my Birthday Fiesta birthday card:
 You'll notice that I used the rock and roll technique on the cactus.  After inking the stamp with Emerald Envy ink, I stamped off, then rolled the edges of the stamp in the Emerald Envy ink pad to give the cactus a more realistic look.  I also created a little flower--one of the stamps in the set--with Peekaboo peach and attached it to the longer arm of the cactus.  If you've ever seen one of these saguaro cacti in real life, you know how majestic they are.  This stamp set reminds me of good times in Arizona, visiting the Saguaro National Park.
My next project uses the same stamps and paper to create a little sticky note holder.  Projects like these with measurements can be found on SUDSOL.  I never need to wonder where I put instructions for a project I want to use.
My third project is a card I completed for a new catalog stamp sets swap hosted by SUDSOL:

This is another example of what SUDSOl offers:  swaps created by talented demonstrators.  And you know you'll get great samples to use in your business.

I hope you have enjoyed my samples today.  Now continue on to see more great projects!
