Flowers on your birthday card

I just love this Stampin Up stamp set Bloomin' Beautiful. The colors I used are all Stampin Up. They are Garden Green, So Saffron, and Rose Red. I colored in the flower with an aqua painter. The edges were inked with a sponge dapper. They are always good to use if you don't want ink on your fingers. This in one of the cards that will be done at my Sept 7th card class. There is still room if you want to join just email me. Thanks for looking.
Happy Stampin'

Fun with Chalk

This is a very fun card. I stamped the main image from Fresh Cuts stamp set by Stampin up with Versamark. The Versamark is great for chalk. The technique is called Poppin Pastels. Once you stamp the Versamark you use sponge dappers and tap the chalk over the Versamark. The chalk sticks to the Versamark. I used all different colors of Stampin Up's chalk. This is a gate card. This is one of the cards we will be doing at the Stamp A Stack on September 7. If you have not RSVP yet email me Thanks for looking.
Happy Stamping,

Rainbow Sherbet birthday card

This card was made with the new designer series paper Rainbow Sherbet. The colors are Stampin up Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Apricot Appeal, and Gable Green. I used the Boho Blossom punch and the 5 petal flower punch. The stamp set is also by Stampin up called Heard from the Heart. It is on sale right now for 19.51. That is 15% off. If you want it just let me know. This is one of the cards I am doing at my September 7 Stamp a stack. If you want to sign up just email me. Thanks for looking.

Christmas Line

It's time to start thinking about Christmas. I just love this new Stampin Up Stamp set. It's called Holiday line up.

These cards have been everywhere and I just had to try it. I am waiting for someone to have a baby so I can use it. I made these with my Stamper's Club and they loved it. Thanks for looking.

Fruit card

Tart and Tangy is the stamp set I used . The paper is summer picnic. The ribbon is real red wide grosgrain. This stamp set is in the current mini catalog. You can only buy it till June 30. I hope it makes the new catalog but we won't find out till August 12. The retire list comes out June 15. Thanks for looking.

Happy Birthday

For this card I used water color pencils. I stamped with Stazon then colored them in and used the aqua painters to blend the color in. The big h is covered with green duel beads. I saw how to make this off someone's blog. She did a great job, I didn't keep the link so I can't give credit, but if I come along it again I will add it. Thanks for looking.

Thank you with chipboard

This is the other card we made at the Stamper's Club. The chipboard is the star. The old olive was wheeled with so swirly and stamped Thank you with the silver Encore pad. I ruffed up the edges with the cutter kit. Thanks for looking.

Chipboard scratch pad holder

Here is the 3D item we made in my Stamper's Club. I used the on board basic small. They cover so easy with the designer series paper.

Chipboard. Get it while it is still on sale

This is one of the cards I did with my Stamper's Club this month. The chipboard is the little heart at the bottom of the card. The flower was colored in with chalk. I used the white gel pen to make the squiggles. I dyed the chipboard using a stampin dabber. I rubbed it into the ink pad and them rubbed it directly onto the chipboard. I just the multi purpose glue and dipped it in to the chunky glitter. I love the way this card turned out.
Stampin Up is offering 25% off all chipboard with any order of $35 or more.

Having Fun with Shaving Cream

This is Sassy Suzie. She is from the Occasions Mini Collection. I used the shaving cream technique. It is very easy. I use a Styrofoam tray and cover it with a layer of shaving cream. Take a reinker and add drops all over the shaving cream. To do a card front you only need about 4 or 5 drops. Take a stick and swirl the reinker into the shaving cream. Don't swirl too much or you will mix the reinker with the shaving cream too much. After you are done swirling lay your card stock face down into the shaving cream. Push in to make sure it is covered. Peel the card stock out of the shaving and wipe off the shaving cream. If you have a bowl scraper in your kitchen that would work nice if you don't use a tongue depressor or a scrap piece of card stock. After you get off most of the shaving cream use a paper towel and dry your paper. The card stock will be a little moist, let it dry for a couple of minutes or heat it with your heat tool. Then you are all done! Have fun.

Have a Great St. Patrick's Day!

No Peek Bag Topper

This is a no peek bag topper. I wheeled the bag in brillant blue with the happy birthday wheel. I used my markers and colored the spaceship in then huffed on it to remoisen the ink and then stamped it onto the cardstock. I used the Auzel desinger series paper. The Birthday wishes is a level one hostess set. What is great about using these is you don't have to use tissue paper and that they can't peek. I made these at my last 2 workshops this past weekend. Everyone is ready for a birthday party now. Thanks for looking!

Make A Wish


Here is the first card that my New Stamper's club made. The technique for this month was Dazzling Diamond Dust. The cupcake top has the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique. The technique is very easy. First you stamp your image. When the images are dried completely cover the entire image with Versamark. Sprinkle Iridescent Ice embossing powder over the versamark and heat set. That's its. It looks so sparkle. On the inside of the card I used the stipple brush and pounced it in Blue Bayou and pounced it on the card stock.

Thanks for looking.

Mouse Valentine box

This is a 2579 box. My stamper's club will be making this project this weekend. The real red cardstock is wheeled with So Swirly. I stamped the Mouse with black Stazon onto watercolor cardstock. The stamp set is Happy Heart Day. I outlined the image with Stampin Up Markers and blended them with an aqua painter. I love the look and it gets me to use my markers. I have been using my watercolor crayons for a long time and I am glad to change us a bit. Thanks for looking.

Whale Wishes

I am loving this new catalog. This is one of the new stamp sets Pun Fun. The desinger series paper is Azure. I colored in the whale with my Stampin Up Markers and blended it with an aqua painter. This makes the image look watercolored. I really like the look.
