Decorative Borders (SNEAK PEEK!) Customer Cards for November 2022!

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Today I am hopping along with other members of Bruno and Kylie Bertucci's Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program.  I have learned so much through this training group since I first became a demonstrator.  We love doing our Monthly Team Blog Hops with our general theme for all the hops being customer and team thank you cards.

Today's Project

Today's project is a thank you card that I am providing to my customers this month as a thank you for their orders.  I attended a special demonstrator event in Indianapolis on Saturday and received some free products that will be available for customers to purchase in January 2023 with the release of the new January-April 2022 Mini Catalog!  I love spoiling my customers and I hope that they enjoy my gratitude as much as I enjoy sharing new ideas, sneak peeks and techniques with them.

Project Details

Decorative Borders was one of the stamp sets that everyone at OnStage received this weekend in Indianapolis (worldwide, too, I'm sure)!  This stamp set is so my style so I was thrilled and had to use it for the first time as described in its title for this month's customer thank you cards.

The color palette was based on the swaps that I had created for OnStage so this amazing floral stamp set can be used for year round, too!
