Basket of Wishes, Featuring The New Stampin’ Blends

Great news! The Stampin’ Blends will be available to purchase on November 1st. Woohoo! They are amazing. I am by far, NOT a watercolor artist, but these babies make me feel like I am. Here is my amazing card. I can’t believe I’ve had the Basket of Wishes stamp set and not used it until this card. What was I thinking? But its the perfect stamp set to watercolor. Tip: When using the Blends, always…

Spooky Cat, Not Spooky at All!

  This is another card we did in my Holiday Card Class this month. I love the cat punch, and check out the new Black Crochet Trim. This is a pretty easy card to put together. We have a Black card base, with a 2 1/2″ piece of the Spooky Night Designer Paper, (don’t forget to add your Vintage Crochet Trim) on the left and a 1 3/4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock that was…

Wedding Card, a Little New, a Little Old

My Son and his fiance are getting married in Las Vegas on Saturday. This is the card I made for them. Their colors are Real Red & Very Vanilla. I added just a “splash” of red to the Gold Metalic-Edge Ribbon. I love the sentiment in the Cheers to the Year stamp set which is on page 37 of the Holiday Catalog. It pretty much sealed the deal, if you know what I mean. It…

Painted Harvest CASE (Copy & share everything)

I received the card on the right from Patty Bennett. She sends cards to all top 15 in her downline for sales. I needed one more card for my Card Class last week and thought, hmmmmm, I’m going to case Patty. I changed a couple of things, but the layout is basically the same. I loved how Patty used the “burlap” stamp, it gives the card a lot of texture without all the bulk. So…

Gourd Goodness

What a fun name for a stamp set. I originally bought this set because of the beautiful leaves, but look at these gorgeous pumpkins. Its a two step stamp with both pumpkins. At first when I stamped the solid image, I thought, you really don’t need the 2nd stamp…….boy was I wrong. It totally makes the pumpkin “pop”. Then I “winked” it with Wink of Stella. The stems each have two stamps too. I am…

Painted Harvest Fall Card

I really love how this card turned out. I’ve seen several takes on this technique. I LOVE the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. What better way to show it off than with the word FALL, using the Large Letter Dies. I originally did the one of the left. When Patty and I got together a while back we made this card and I totally forgot the top two layers. They both work, but really like the…

Simple Painted Harvest Card

This is another card we will make in my Stamp Club Class on September 5th. The Painted Harvest stamp set is amazing to use. Its a two step stamp. My first layer is Daffodil Delight, then Crushed Curry. The center of the flower is Soft Suede. You will notice that I’m only stamping half of the flower. Start in the center and then do the one on top and bottom. Mine aren’t perfectly centered, but…

Merry Cafe

I know you’ve heard me mention that I don’t like coffee, but I’m telling you these stamps like the Merry Cafe (in the Holiday Catalog) & Coffee Cafe (Annual Catalog), I LOVE! I actually love the smell of coffee brewing. Everyone around me drinks coffee, but me. So this newest Coffee stamp is awesome too. Lots of great sentiments covering, Halloween, Fall, Christmas, New Year & Valentines Day. Plus a few images like the leaves,…

Glossy Paper Leaves

Here I go again, back to the Glossy Paper and Re-inkers. Watch my video HERE. This technique just screams FALL! don’t you think? On the other cards I did, I used a big piece and and then die cut. This time I die cut the leaves from Seasonal Layers Framelits and then used the re-inkers and water to spread the ink. Before the ink dried, I laid the cut out leaf (skeleton leaf) onto the…
