Happy 4th!

What to do when you don't have anything current that looks like fireworks?
Use a 3 tine fork!

Press fork into stamp pad and then roll onto card with even pressure.
 If you are stuck inside today with the kiddos in the heat, 
 this would be fun for them to do to create a banner or placemats for the day.
You could use ink pads or even acrylic paints.

On the bottom right, you can see I tried adding Pool Party to the fireworks.  
It didn't look right.  I used Night of  Navy and Real Red.

The greeting is from the Climbing Orchid stamp set.

Here's nature's fireworks blooming in my flower bed.
Love these burgundy lilies.  Wish they lasted all summer long.

Happy stamping!

Designer Series Paper SALE!

Hi all!  I think I'm back.  Three crazy months are behind me.
Not going to rehash it all, but I survived it.  barely   

First a bit about a card.  
Petal Palette Stamp Set

Here is a card we did at a past event.  It is an easy way to get 
the look of triple stamping, using designer paper for the stamped layers.

1 sheet of Marina Mist or color of your choice.
1 sheet of Designer Series Paper or a sheet of Whisper White stamped in design of your choice.  Memento Black Ink or color of your choice.
The measurements, from top to bottom are:
Marina Mist card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2″.  Score at 4 1/4" fold in half.
Designer Series Paper layer or stamped Whisper White: 4 x 5 1/4″
Marina Mist layer: 3 1/4 x 4  1/2″
Designer Series Paper layer or stamped Whisper White: 3 x 4 1/4″
Marina Mist layer: 2 1/4 x 3 1/2″
Designer Series Paper layer or stamped Whisper White: 2 x 3 1/4″
Attach your layers starting with the card base and working upwards.  I decorated the last layer with ribbon, a greeting (I rounded the ends of the paper strip in a 1" Circle Punch.) and a die cut image of the bird.  Each Marina Mist layer is popped up with Dimensionals.  
My customers loved it.  It was a quick and easy WOW card.
This is retired designer paper, as the event was in May, but you could stamp all over 
a sheet of Whisper White then cut it to size for your card.or use something new!

All the new Designer Series Paper are on sale this month!
Buy 3 get one free!  Great sale!

Happy stamping!

Sharing Sweet Thoughts - Ronald McDonald stamp set

This is the last year Stampin' Up! will be partnering with the Ronald McDonald houses. 
They will be revamping the program that reaches out to make a difference in ou communities.  
While we as demonstrator may continue to work with the RMHC organization,
 there will no longer be a stamp set featured in the catalog each year.

The background paper is the Wood designer Series paper.  
It will be in the next catalog!  Yea!

This set was fun and paired up with the Everyday Jars framelit dies 
and the Jar of Love stamp set.  All of which are retiring.
Also the doilies will be retiring.  Don't worry there are new ones.

Get the stamps you still want before they are gone!  Things are selling out fast!

Happy spring!

Hi there!

Busy end of April here.  Someone offered to buy my house, but sadly that fell through.  
It did make me aware of so much that needs to be done, though!  It is so easy to overlook stuff 
when one doesn't feel good.  Do you know a good handyman?  Will he travel for his job?  lol

It's finally warning up here too Chris, though my tulips are only just up.  
Please no  . .more . .snow!  
I remember one year we had a snowstorm in may.  I am done with winter.
My species Iris plant did make an appearance.  
I thought the rabbits did it in last spring.  
It survived.  Tough little plant.

I had fun making a baby gift for one of the girls at the beauty shop I go to.  
She had a little girl, and loves owls.  I made an owl Baby Cocoon using my knitting looms. 
I love how it turned out.  It looks like it was knit on needles. 
The new baby is only 6.6 lbs, so I made a hat with the pattern, then a smaller one to fit now.

Now I'm back to stamping!  
I'll be posting April's Stamp Buffet card int he next few days.
