Painted Harvest Thankful Card

This is the third and final project we completed at my club class in September.  I just realized that I hadn’t posted it.  The original idea came from Jenny Hall (found on Pinterest).  I have thoroughly enjoyed the items that I’ve stamped using the Painted Harvest bundle.  This stamp set has received lots of love and attention from demonstrators around the world.  Every time you stamp it, it looks a little different, thanks to the…

Masculine Friend Card

Good masculine cards are hard to come by!  And when I saw this one that Connie made, I knew I wanted to CASE it.  Special thanks to Connie for always posting the greatest projects!  At first glance, you may just think this card is created with one piece of Stampin’ Up!’s awesome wood-grain paper…….but look again.  It is actually made with 1″ strips that are cut, sponged for shading, and then attached to cardstock on…

Halloween Matchbook Treats

It’s time to start thinking about some Halloween treats!  We made these simple matchbook treats at my Club Class last week, and I made a bunch more this weekend at a retreat.  My daughter is going to give them for class treats, and to all of the teachers/aides that help with her class.  I like to send a little something to the music, PE, computer teachers, etc. so that they feel a little love, too!…

Fancy Fold Card with Lovely Labels

This lovely Tri-fold Card was inspired by another Demonstrator, BJ Peters.  Details can be found HERE.  As always, I’m thankful for friends who share, and I always want to give credit where credit is due!   I love how wonderfully this displays our gorgeous DSP and the many different combinations!  And it goes together so quickly!   Here’s a look at the card when you stretch it all out!  The combinations are endless, but I…

With Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are tough.  You gotta have them, but you never really want to make them.  We made this card a couple of weeks ago at my August Club Class.  I had someone at class who needed a sympathy card for an infant that had passed away.  She wondered if we thought this might be appropriate.  She was glad that we made this floral card because she thought it might work out for her friend.  I…

Thanks A Latte Card

My Stamp Club started back up for the school year last week and we enjoyed stamping with new products!  The Coffee Cafe Suite is one of my all-time favorites, and I can’t wait to use it over and over again!  The coordinating Designer Series Paper makes creating even more fun…….and the color scheme automatically makes you think of “Starbucks”.  I don’t think it’s pure coincidence!  Doesn’t this make you just want to get in the…

Daisy Delight Stamp Class

We had such a fun time stamping last night!  It was wonderful to see my stampin’ friends and be creative for a change.  Many of you know that my summer has been spent moving my mother to my hometown and into an assisted living center.  It all started earlier in the spring when we began noticing an even greater amount of Dementia symptoms with mom and I was too far away from her to offer…

Watercolor Happy Birthday Card

Tonight’s class features five watercoloring cards.  I’m so excited to teach my customers more about this technique and allow them to be “artists” for the evening.  I can’t wait to see how everyone’s cards turn out, because when you watercolor,  no two cards are ever identical!  You can even “mess up” your card when you are watercoloring, and no one will ever know!  I really enjoy the freedom of using the Aqua Painters and letting…

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card

How about some glitz and glamour in a birthday card?  I have already used this “Happy Birthday” Thinlit from Stampin’ Up! more times than I can count!  I’m digging the font, and the size!  It fills up my card so nicely and it can even stand alone if you don’t want alot of fuss on your card.  This time I went for the Gold Glitter Paper and used the NEW Sizzix Adhesive Sheets.  These are…

Special Celebrations Banner Card

Today’s card is another one of my Stamp Club cards.  We are having class tonight, and I’m featuring some new stamps sets and new colors that Stampin’ Up! has recently introduced in their new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  I received inspiration for this card from Pinterest, it is NOT an original.  Life is too crazy these days for me to spend alot of time creating original designs.  I enjoy the process of cardmaking, but more often…
