Little Cuties Puppy Card

I love making “special order” cards for my family and friends.  One of my coworkers asked me to make a card for her niece that just got a new puppy.  I was SO excited to have a reason to ink up this new image from the “Occasions” catalog.  Isn’t this adorable!  I can see so much potential with the animals in this set — despite the fact that it appears to be “baby themed” at…

Hello, My Friend

Stampin’ Up’s annual Sale-A-Bration has begun, and this is one of my favorite stamps!  Such a simple little word, in a sweet little font, with such great potential to brighten someone’s day!  When I plan my classes, I work hard to make sure my gals are constantly using new products and new techniques that they haven’t purchased, or perhaps overlooked in the catalog.  I must confess, even I had overlooked the Happy Patterns stencils that you…

Butterfly Thinlets Card

Isn’t this gorgeous?  I love the “romantic” look of this card!  So pretty……it could be for a shower, a wedding, a girlfriend’s birthday, or even a Sympathy card.  Don’t you think? This is one of the cards we will make at Saturday Stamp Time!  Attendees will receive half a package of this DSP,  Something Borrowed, and Pink Pirouette Blendabilities — as well as many other goodies!   I used the Blendabilities to color a few…

Peek-A-Boo Card with Window Sheet

Once again……so sorry for not getting to the blog!  I am finally getting settled into a new routine at my new job, all the college kids are back at school, and I still hope to do better at regular posting.  But, there’s this thing called “life” that gets in my way!  But hopefully I can get back into the swing of things.  I’m leaving town tomorrow for Stampin’ Up! Leadership in Orlando.  Super excited for…

Magic Reinkers Technique

Ladies……I love when I find something new to try after 15 years of being a demonstrator!  I saw this technique online and decided to showcase it at my Stamp with Perrywinkle Downline meeting, as well as my October Club class.  Everyone loved it!  You start by embossing a flower on Shimmery White Cardstock.  You must use the Shimmery White — NOT Whisper White.  In real life, you can still see the shimmer on this flower.…
