Wonderful Moments stamp set - Wine card

Am I the only one who saw a wine glass in her hand the minute I saw the stamp set?
Please say I'm not!  Maybe I just have too many friends who love wine?

I drew a wine glass in her hand to create a birthday card for a wine lover..
Inside I wrote our funny thing, we say often.  Maybe too often?  lol

Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - card 3

I found a card online somewhere, the stamper did something really different with this folder.
So I had to try it by casing the idea.  I sponged Versamark on an embossed image.  
Covered it with Silver Embossing Powder, then punched it out with a circle framelit.
I layered it over a second embossed image  and added the cardstock flags below the circle.

Treat Card Tutorial - Enjoy Life Stamp Set

These were my thank you cards for August orders.  
I wanted to give a treat but not make 2 things, 
as I had already given out shaker bookmarks in my classes.

 These are so easy to make.
Night of Navy cardstock base 5.5" x 8.5"
Score at 4.25" Fold in half.

Twinkle, Twinkle Designer paper - 4" x 5.25"
Attach to front of card base only around the edges.  You'll  be using the dsp piece that you punch.

Slide the card all the way into the Everyday Label Punch.
Punching the opening the candy bar will sit in.

Attach a layer of Whisper White 4" x 5.25" inside the card on right hand side.

I wrapped Hershey Milk Chocolate Nuggets in Twinkle, Twinkle Designer paper. 1" x 3" strips
Use Tear and Tape to adhere the dsp to the candy bar and the card.
I applied 2 strips of tape on the back of the candy bar, making sure one went over the paper edge.

Close the card and adhere candy bar in center of opening.
I punched a star with a retired punch, oops, and attached it to the candy bar with a glue dot.
The Twinkle Builder Punch has a same size star in it.

Image: Clear Block Stamping.
Ink small clear block C with Mint Macaroon and Balmy Blue.
Spritz with water and stamp on Whisper White cardstock.  
Set aside to dry or use a heat gun to gently dry the paper.

When dry, stamp bike rider image in Night of Navy over block stamping.
Trim around shape.

Cut a 3/4" x 2.75" strip of Mint Macaroon.  
Cut a banner end in the very end edge with the Triple Banner punch.
I use the punch upside down to see where the paper is in the punch.
Attach these to card.

Whisper White cs 1" x 3" 
Punch just at the ends of the edge to create banner ends.
Again using the Triple Banner punch upside down.
I used the designer paper piece I punched out of the front layers under my greeting.
Attach to card and you're done.

Any candy that has a flat side, and fits in the opening,  would work.
This card could have so many uses.  Add a gift card pocket to the inside 
below the candy bar and it could be used for many occasions!

Happy stamping!

Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - card 2

A very simple wedding card.

I embossed the flower, then painted in and on the embossed area 
with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush to add a bit of dazzle.
Layered the white embossed layer on a white card base.
A few pearls scattered over the front. (These are the last of the tiny size
 from the past catalog.)  I trimmed one end of the Classic Label Punch shape. 
 Tied it with Gold Metallic Thread, it's all ready for a wedding!

Enjoy Life Photopolymer Stamp Set

This is a lovely stamp set with so many wonderful images.  
It was created by one of our million dollar winners, and is in honor of her children.

I love the shimmer ribbon.  It comes in several colors and adds a nice touch to a card.
The square inked area is done by inking up your clear block, spritzing it with water,
and pressing the block to the paper, like a stamp.
Card inspired by a card by Jeanne Moss

Reindeer . . . dashing through the snow . . . .

 From the new Holiday Catalog that will be released in September.
These are one of the reindeer from the Detailed Deer Thinlits.
I'm creating swap cards and had these laying on my work surface.
I had to share!

I'll share the swap card after everyone has theirs back.  
I don't want to spoil the surprise!

I can share this!
This is a prototype for a wedding invitation for this winter.
It will say, You're invited, on the little tag for the event.

To get a deer to face the other way cut from the back of the foil.

Cardstock of course, can just be flipped over!  It's 2 sided!

Happy stamping!

August Class Schedule and my little wheelbarrow

I've got my events posted on my demonstrator website.

I'd love to have you come to a class if you're close by.


On a fun note, I bought this little wheel barrow at Williams Little Store in Omro 
 and planted it with Impatiens, Calendium, and Sage.  

They look much better after week, and some rain. 
I still need to put the bark in there.

I like this lemon lime Coleus I got too.  I stuck it in with my Begonias.

I put my sticker on my van.  :-)

I just got some corrugated tin to do some projects in the yard.  
Once they get done, I'll share those too.

Happy stamping!
