I have a new Stamp Club starting and YOU are invited!
WHAT IS STAMP CLUB?
Once a month the members of club come to my house and stamp some (3-4) projects that I have prepared just for you. We snack, chat and stamp together. Each person places a minimum order ($30-$35) each month. And then each person gets a month to be hostess and earn FREE Stampin' Up! product. We have a great time learning new stamping techniques and using the newest SU! products!
I am kicking it off with an introductory class for all my customers to come and check it out and see what Stamp Club is all about.
Interested in coming to this event? Leave me a comment here/below to RSVP.

I colored the Blended Bloom flower with the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities. Then I pressed the entire flower into my VersaMark Pad then covered it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Then heated it with my Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder. Giving the whole flower and icy glittery blanket!
Two weeks ago we moved to a new house. We are thrilled to have more space for our little family. We truly feel blessed. You have not heard from me during this time because I do not have internet yet. Apparently these things take a while to transfer over. So I have been in a technology fast so to speak. But I am still stamping and having workshops! I miss blogging and am trying out this post on my phone. Looks like I can not add pictures though! So, I hope to be back sharing with you at full capacity really soon! Check back soon!
Welcome to the first Catalog CASE with Carrie post. Catalog CASE mean that I find a project in the Stampin' Up! catalog and CASE it (Copy And Share Everything). I was challenged to do this in a SU! busniness class I am taking. Well, I LOVED it so much I decided to add it as a regular feature to my blog. Let me know what you think!!!
In the challenge we had to pick a project from the catalog that we wanted to CASE, then make this project using different colors and stamps. Here is my creation:
I would usually turn to my background stamps, like HARDWOOD, my fave. But, I thought to use my focal image as the background too and I love how it makes the flower POP off the card.
The flower is a single stamp called Blended Bloom and is the perfect canvas for our new Blendabilities. I used the Cherry Cobbler set and the Daffodil Delight set for this card. I color one petal at a time, starting with the darkest blender and working my way out with the medium blender and then the lightest. I cut the flower out and popped it up with dimensionals.
I find coloring with the Blendabilities so relaxing. I have stamped several of the flowers and just colored them and saved them for a later use.
Last week my girls and I stamped some cards. I just remembered I had taken pictures to share but had not done so yet. They both wanted to make a card for their best friends.
Here is Hannah's card.
She wanted a butterfly stamp. So, I taught her how to "kiss" two stamps together giving her plain pink butterfly some polka dots. She picked each thing she wanted on her card. I had a lot of fun showing her how to use the tools, it's been a while since we just played in the stamp room.
Here is Samantha's card. She worked on this one 90% on her own.
This is for her friend who moved away to Utah. She folded the tiny paper airplane her self. So cute.
So, moral of the story is, stamp with someone you love.

So much fun stuff to play with in this month's Paper Pumpkin kit. I made a gift set, inspired by one demonstrated at convention by Sara Douglas. From the kit I used 2 cards, 2 envelopes, 1 gift box, and 4 tags. As well as embellishments from the kit to complete each. I only used a few things that are not included in the kit. Look how cute this is...
The box has a gift tag in front and behind it are 4 gift cards with matching envelopes and 4 gift tags.
Here is the tag:
The only thing I added to this tag that was not from the kit was a small strip of Soft Sky card stock. I also used my corner rounder to round the bottom corners.
Here are the 4 cards:
To make these gift cards you just cut a card in half, creating 2 gift cards! I only used a couple scraps of Whisper White card stock to complete these.
Here are the matching envelopes:
For the gift size envelopes I just cut an envelope in half. I stamped the flaps and to close the open side of the envelope I used washi tape.
And here are the 4 gift tags:
I designed them to match the cards. I used a scrap of Whisper White card stock, dimensionals and two mini glue dots that were not in the kit.
All of these things fit perfectly in the box.
Pretty cute! And a nice little gift for a friend!
If you would like to come play with kit, join me for my Paper Pumpkin Party!

I needed a card for my husband's uncle's birthday. I some pices left over from a card I made for Father's Day and decided to see if I could make the card a little different. Well, I went a little overboard I think. hehe.
The card is a bit busy. But I love the stamp set so much it is hard for me not to use ALL the images in the set wihen I make a card.
Here is another card and box I made with my July Paper Pumpkin Kit. There is a nice stamp set in the kit, with several different greetings to choose from. I made this one a Happy Birthday Card. And a how about a little treat for the birthday person.
In thes pictures you might not be able to tell, but the darkest color is actually purple, it's our new Blackberry Bliss! It's so pretty on the shiny gift boxes.
Did you know you can make 6 of these boxes from 1 kit!
AND, 6 cards from this kit!!!
