Little Change, Big Difference

It's amazing how just a small change can make a big difference in the look of a homemade card.  Here is a card that was stamped with a small embellishment, then decided to stamp another flower and use embossing poweder, then used a framelit to cut out the flower.  I attached the flower with a dimensional, a few lines and dots with an opaque white gel pen and it seemed to have transformed the card.  I love the difference.  What additional detail can you add to one of your current creations to make a big difference?  I can't wait to see your ideas!

How to Video - Chalkboard Technique

Well, here it is... The video for the Chalkboard Technique that I used when making the You're Amazing card.  Hope you like it! And last but not least - A huge thank you to, my brother, Jess for making me a great camera stand that made making this video possible!!! ENJOY!!!


Old Olive or Night of Navy? Let's put them together!!!

I have really been enjoying Old Olive and Night of Navy lately.  Isn't it amazing how you are just attracted to certain color combinations as the seasons change?  Well, as you can tell, I have been using it alot lately.  Here is fun little snippet of a card I made earlier today to also go out with my Mother-in-law's thank you batch.  
I am only showing a piece because I haven't decided if I want to use this for my swap this month with my WeStamp group.  The Thank You is from the Sale-a-bration that started earlier this week.  If you are interested in earning some free items during Sale-a-bration, just let me know and I will do my best to get you there.


Chalkboard Card Technique

My brother made me a great camera stand so I can make better videos.  I am having to learn all over again, because I was just using my iphone to create all my other videos.

Here is a Chalkboard card I made earlier today.  I will be putting together a video on the technique I used to make this card and it will be available soon.  If you are interested in learning this very easy technique, check back next week to see the video.


A nice thank you...

The passing of a family member is never easy, but the love that poors out from everywhere is so great.  It really warmed my heart seeing how many people made themselves available to my Mother-in-law after her husband passed.  I thought what a great way to say thank you, literally, would be to create Thank you cards for her to send to all that gave her such wonderful support.  This is one that I came up with using a couple of items from Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-Bration.  I just love the new Borders Scoring Plate from the new Spring Catalog, don't you?  I hope she likes it.

Just a little close up on the Pretty Petites Stamp Set and matching Petite Curly Label.  
Both are available in the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration catalog.

From this to this - with just a bit of paper and ink...

I found these great lollipops at the Dollar Tree (they spin, like a pinwheel).  And I thought I could dress it up a little with some DSP, a couple punches, ink and some bling.

What do ya think?  Do you like it? Below is a close up for you, for more details!  Enjoy!

A plain old lollipop turned into a perfect little treat for Valentine's Day, thanks to Stampin' Up!

Stamping ~ For the Dudes!!!

Hi Beauties :
I'm excited to introduce Stampin'Up!'s new, very manly stamping kit:
The Dude, You're Welcome! kit # 132807

Guys don't always have the easiest time expressing themselves, but with the Dude, You're Welcome! kit, they'll have
  • Four wood-mount stamps (double-mounted) with the perfect sentiment for every occasion
  • Twelve 4" x 6" postcards in four different (manly) colors
  • Twelve gray envelopes
  • A Basic Gray Classic Stampin' Pad
  • An instructional guide (for the most novice stamper!)

Basically, the kit includes everything a dude needs to create the perfect manly card that any woman would adore, all packaged in an appropriately masculine box.

Dude, You're Welcome! Kit



All the single ladies, oops... I mean stamps (Single Stamps)

Ten Never-Before-Seen Images!

You wanted more? You got more! We've had a great response so far to our single stamps. So much so that we are making ten more never-before-seen images available as single stamps through March 31, 2013.


Here are the two flyers to see them better.
  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
  • Single stamps can be ordered through my online store
  • These won't be sent in typical cases; they'll be packaged in cello bags. If you'd like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
  • The stamps come in clear mount only and do not come with a Clear-Mount Block, so you'll need to buy a block separately if you don't already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer (see above links).
  • There's no limit on how many pieces you can buy.
  • These stamps are only available through March 31, 2013, so get them while you can!
