I've been a Demonstrator for almost 15 years so my customers have been around a looooong time! My projects are usually better suited to classes but this is my "Go-To" card for newbies/workshops. It uses minimal supplies and makes a great gift if you package up a few and tie with a coordinating ribbon. (It was cased from a gift packet that Yvette Sanchez made me.)
Supplies: Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White card stocsks; International Bazaar Designer Series Paper; Daffodil Delight Seam Binding; Rich Razzleberry Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon; Morning Post Alphabet Stamp Set; Versamark Ink; Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink; Clear Embossing Powder; Heat Tool, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch; Snail Adhesive; Stampin' Dimensionals; Mini Glue Dots. (Technique: "Cheater Embossing")
This card is "clean" looking but has a lot of dimension and texture. It uses lots of new product from the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog. (The oval is colored in with a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker and the next layer is punched with the Extra Large Oval Punch.) All supplies are listed below.
Supplies: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White card stocks; Big Shot; Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder (my fave!); Apothecary Accents Framelits; Layered Labels Stamp Set; Stazon Black Ink; Real Red Stampin' Write Marker; Large Oval Punch; Basic Black 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon; Linen Thread; Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons; Stampin' Dimensionals; Mini Glue Dots; Snail Adhesive.
One of the first things I did when my last child left for college was to start a Book Club. I invited my favorite women to get together once a month. Every month someone different hosts and they get to choose the book. It's been great to "get out of my box" and read lots of books I would not have otherwise read. It is such a blessing and a treat to get to spend time with these amazing women on a regular basis! Each year, when it's my turn to host, I make bookmarks for "the girls." This is going to be the next one they receive. (I will do a video for these and post it for you in a day or two.) Enjoy!

I threw this card in last minute because you came all the way over here so I wanted to make sure you got enough ideas! If you take a look around you'll realize that, to me, embellishments are kind of like cookies, once I get started I really just can't stop myself!
