Pals Guest Stamper Susan Itell & Daisy Mae

Ah, the life of a pig!  Well, it CAN be pretty darn luxurious if you happen to belong to Susan Itell, today's guest stamper and a member of my Stampin' Pretty Pals.  She used the new Stampin' Up! Simply Sent FREE App to send a quick, ecard blast "driving" the introduction of Miss Daisy Mae (her pet teacup pig) to her friends and family.

Susan blue birthday
Susan not only can whip up creative ideas electronically, she's a master with paper and ink, too.  To see more of Susan's ideas and talent, please visit her Stampin' Up! blog.  The above card was made for her horse trainer's birthday and represents their barn colors of navy, grey and white.

Susan blue and green birthday
Here's another version in green and blue.  She added the saying "No one can hold a candle to you. Happy Birthday!!!" to the interior.

Ok, this is simply the coolest idea to thank a pet sitter using the Stampin' Up! Petite Purse Bigz L Die (125606).  Her check is rolled up in the little scroll.

Susan candy cello bags
Here's a clever year round treat idea.  Susan turned it into an advent calendar of daily treats using the Stampin' Up! 25 & Counting Stamp Set (Wood-Mount 122560, Clear-Mount 122562) and our 1 x 8 cellophane bags (124134). 

STAMPIN' UP! ON-LINE EXTRAVAGANZA:  The 25 & Counting Stamp Set is 50% OFF now through Nov. 28.  See all sale items.   Please note the clear-mount version of 25 & Counting (122562) is on back order.  However, since Stampin' Up! makes their owns stamps (here in the U.S., woo hoo!), I don't anticipate much of a delay but can't guarantee arrival by Dec. 1 (the first day of an advent calendar).
