It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a "Color My World" challenge. Today's color combo was an obvious choice to reach for the new Nature's Poem Suite! With the Rooted In Nature Bundle (stamp and matching Framelits) and the beautiful Nature's Poem Designer Series, this card comes together pretty quick. How'd She DO That? tips for Rooted in Nature Thanks card: Stamps: Rooted in Nature Paper: Mint Macaron (4-1/4" x 11" card base) Thick Whisper White (scraps for tree, sentiment) Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4", 2-3/8" Circle Die) Ink: Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron,...

I received a card from my sweet friend, Shannon West from the Stampin' Up! home office (congratulating me on my $1 million sales milestone achievement). At first glance, I didn't recognize the cute products. Then I realized it was from the new Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit. Even the envelope is cute! If you're interested in calligraphy, then this kit is for you. As you'll learn modern script calligraphy while creating a selection of hand-lettered cards. Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit: Makes 16 cards: 4 each of 4 designs Folded card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit includes: 16 printed... Continue reading

Last month I received a Thank You card from Stampin' Up! for sharing ideas on uses for the Stamparatus. Today's card features the new Abstract Impressions stamp set and several new colors. This card was stamped entirely with the Stamparatus. I see the hinge-step (the horizontal lines) and 2-step stamping, both are perfect uses for the Stamparatus. Abstract Impressions card: Stamps: Abstract Impressions Paper: Gray Granite (11" x 4-1/4" card base) Soft Sea Foam (5-1/2" x 3-3/8") Whisper White (5-1/2" x 3", and scrap for punch) Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento, Soft Sea Foam, Grapefruit Grove, Flirty Flamingo, Pineapple Punch, Granny...

Lately I've been receiving several inquiries about the cards I made during my $1 Million Milestone trip to the Stampin' Up! home office. It was originally posted here. So I thought I'd answer them today. I was so excited to play with with the Accented Blooms stamp set, as it's one of favorites from the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Plus to stamp with Shelli and Sara, that made it even more fun! One of the questions I've been getting about the card is...did we color the larger flowers white? That answer is no - it seems to be an optical... Continue reading

Today's card features the new Stampin' Rewards set (free with $150 or more order). The stamp set is called Pressed Flowers and it caught my eye right away. Tomorrow I'll be attending my Great Aunt Ann's funeral. She lived to be 98 years old (almost 99). She always had a great disposition and lots of energy. She proudly served both her community (up until a few years ago) & country when she was younger. She lived a good life! I enjoyed making this card for her family while I recalled sweet memories of her. The card is so much better... Continue reading
