Christmas Card for September...

September 15, 2020

This is my Christmas card for September. Locally I teach a class every week and on the 3rd Thursday we have been making a Holiday card. We were afraid we would not be able to host a holiday stamp camp this year with everything going on but, everyone wants to come!!! In the mean time here is this months inspiration for a Christmas card. I am using Peaceful Nativity Stamps and matching dies. I love how 3D the stable came out. For the night sky I blended 3 blues: Night of navy, Misty moonlight & Seaside Spray. I just used a blending brush to get the fade and worked light to dark. After I was done I spritzed with water and added the star from the die set. For Mary & Joseph I stamped them in Soft Suede and colored with our alcohol markers - "Blends". This is a great tip that any of our Stampin Up! water biased ink pads can be used to stamp an image and then color in. Just think of the possibilities! Stampin dark green for leafs and color in...Too cool!

Hallows Night Magic Card...

September 8, 2020
Here is a peak at this weeks card class!

For this weeks class we are making a Halloween card. If Halloween is not your thing stick with using just the flowers in this collection and it could easily become a steampunk or Gothic style card. We are using a mix of black paper with different finishes on this card. Glitter, glossy and some shimmer! For class you can pick from an assortment of DSP paper and embellishments. I am also in love with the dark "Iridescent Pearls" from this collections. If ...

New Look!

August 26, 2020
Hi everyone!
I think it is good to challenge yourself to try new things and make new goals. For me, a big one, is moving more of my business online! That means blogging and web design. Yikes! If there is one thing in life that I am not very good at it would be spelling. Designing and sewing do not require me to focus on grammar! So, my new goal is to work on all of that and bring what I do on a daily basis online. Lord help me. Check out the new look of my website and let me know what you thin...

Die Cut Tip of the Day!

June 25, 2019

Have you ever had an image that just did not quite fit within your die? 
Well...Have I got a tip for you!
Fussy cut the part of the image that does not fit. In this case it is the branch...Then pull that part of the image up and over the back side of the die. Opposite of the cutting side. Place your die over your image and run it through your die machine. The end result is amazing!! Happy Stamping!
