Upcoming Events

I have two opportunities to come stamp at my home during the month of June.  I am going to briefly tell you about them and post the samples this week and next.  I hope you’ll join me if you are local, and would like a chance to have a “ladies night out” with some papercrafting, snacks, and friends! Tuesday, June 13th will be my monthly Stamp Club group.  You do not have to be a…

Time for Graduation Cards!

It’s time to create some graduation cards and send well wishes to the “Class of 2017” graduates!   I found some inspiration on Pinterest, so I can’t claim this idea entirely, but I am using different color schemes to coordinate with the school colors in our area.  This one was created for a customer order for one of my coworkers.  She loved it, and I hope it will give you some inspiration, also! If you…

Eastern Palace Card #5

I enjoyed making another card showcasing the Eastern Medallion Framelits.  Still can’t get over the intricacies of these dies!  Take note of the little dabble of gold accents that I added to this one.  I used the Layering Circle Framelits to cut out the Very Vanilla circle, the gold scalloped circle, and the outside shape of the Lemon Lime Twist medallion.  The dies in the Eastern Medallion set are very versatile — and there are…

Eastern Palace Card #4

Sometimes less is more.  I feel that this card is one of those examples.  And talk about fast and easy……wow!  Notice the stitched details around these square shapes?  This attention to detail is what adds a little “punch” to a simple card.  And I didn’t work any harder to create this……in fact, it was easier than ever.  Check out the Stitched Shapes Framelits in the supply list below.  You’ll get circles, squares, and ovals in…

Eastern Beauty Card #2

This is another gorgeous sample using the Eastern Palace Premium Bundle.  I wish you could see how pretty the gold foil is on the Designer Series Paper.  It really doesn’t photograph all that well, but it is so pretty in real life! This is such a very simple design and the DSP measures 3 3/4″ square so you can get 9 cards like this from one sheet of 12×12 DSP.  I like to create cards…

Eastern Beauty Card #1

I’m loving the new Stampin’ Up! catalog………and I’m slowly finding time to play with new products!  I’m a little behind, and you’ve probably seen quite a few cards by now with this Eastern Palace Bundle, but what can I say?  I’m a busy mom that works a full-time job, and my creative time is ultra limited!  But when I do find time to create……..I grab my Big Shot and get it rolling.  These new Eastern…

Eastern Beauty Card #3

Easter Blessings {Two Color Schemes}

First of all, let me apologize for not blogging in awhile.  I was on a roll for a little bit, but then a new little foster baby came to our home on March 9th, and we’ve been getting settled in to our new “normal”.  But I want to get some Easter cards posted for you all to see since Easter is quickly approaching!  We made these cards at my club class in March (the VERY…
