I received a challenge today to talk to you about animals. I am a strong supporter of treating animals with love and care. It breaks my heart when I see or hear about an animal being abused. The Advocates Saving Adoptable Pets is a passion of mine. My stamping friends and I have done fund raisers to help them meet medical bills for these poor homeless animals. I challenge you to check with your local groups and see how you can use your talents with stamping to help. We were able to raise four thousand dollars in one day with... Continue reading

I made this card today using the negative of a tree branch from making a card with the Beautiful Seasons stamp set. It was my first attempt at coloring my embossing paste. Then I took a scrap of Peak-A-Boo Peach and cut the flowers out with the two flower dies in the bundle. The leaves are punched out using Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. It was a fun card to make and most of the materials came out of my scrap bin. The card itself is Soft Skies and I used copper embossing powder for the greetings. I do wish I... Continue reading

Today's challenge is "Casing". I know the word "case" has several meanings, but to a stamper and card maker, it means to copy. In this case, to copy is a compliment, not a bad thing. When you love someone's card and decide to copy or case it, they know that their idea was great. I encourage new stampers to case other's cards. No two cards are ever going to be the same, so do not worry about it. Although, when you case a card, do not pass it off as your own. Give the designer the credit for their wonderful...

PEARLS, RIBBONS, AND RHINESTONES! What lady doesn’t like a little accessorizing? Pearls, ribbons, and rhinestone add a little zing to not only your outfit, but they are a necessity in the card making and crafting world. As a card maker, I could not do without many colors of ribbons to dress up my card. Color can be added to your pearls and rhinestones with a Sharpie marker. These items can change your card from a plain, simple card to a “WOW” card. Not only do they dress up your card, but they are great for covering little “bobos”. In many... Continue reading

I am so sorry that I have been missing in action when it comes to posting and sharing ideas with you. I hate when this happens. Due to a terrible storm a few weeks ago, my workshop was flooded and when you stepped down on the carpet, you were sinking in water. No, I am not that near to the river and I live on a pretty nice size hill. My house is the first in the sub-division. You guessed it, I got all of the water running off the hill. There was almost four inches of rain in an... Continue reading

It is really important to our children and grandchildren that we, with love, save pictures and memories that we have enjoyed through out our life. When we are gone, they can look back and share your love and memories. It also gives them an idea of what life was like during this era. I know, I look back of pictures of my mother and father as well as grandparents and see a touch of history and how things have changed. The reason most of do not scrapbook these memories is due to lack of time. Traditional scrapbooking is a work... Continue reading

Have you ever had a stamp set that seems to pop up in your hand every time you a few minutes to stamp? Sometime is seems as if they jump into your hand as soon as you walk into your crafting area. Well, that is the way I am with the new Colorful Seasons Bundle that is in the new “Creativity Your Way” Stampin’Up annual catalog and idea book. Today it happened again. I went into my craft room intending to work on my scrapbook page and that silly bundle jumped into my hand. So, I had to create another... Continue reading

The new Stampin'Up Catalog and Idea Book is out for 2017-2018! The new In Colors are only one of the fantastic items that have been introduced. I get so excited to see all of the new toys and tools.

There are so many great bundles and stamp sets, it was really hard to decide what to order first. First off, being a Stampin'Up demonstrator, I was... Continue reading

Do you know what a wonderful surprise it is to receive a personal card or note from a dear friend instead of junk mail? It is a shame that in today's time, the simple pleasure of seeing the mailman delivering a personal note is slowly disappearing. I remember as a kid, it was exciting to see the man delivering mail in his uniform coming up on your porch. You got to run the mail into the house and announcing, the mail is here! Mom would stop everything and look through the mail and exclaim, "Oh, we got a letter from... Continue reading

We often feel that it takes years of experience with stamping and knowing all of the latest techniques to make a great card. I have seen beginning stampers produce beautiful cards and experienced stampers produce a card that they worked hours on and it looked like it came from the dollar store. You can spend hours working on a card and when finished, it looked cheap. How is that? The artist used cheap cardstock. Many people do not realize how important it is to use quality cardstock for your art work. First, cheap cardstock is often thin and flimsy. It... Continue reading

When I first saw the Stampin'Up set, Swan Lake, in the All Occasional Mini catalog last January, I fell in love with this set. I really have no idea why. I think it is because to me, it brings a very peaceful feeling within. I love swans, and you do not see them often in West Virginia. While living in Orlando, one of the lakes downtown, had a black swan that was breath taking beautiful. The picture here could be mistaken for duckling, but the main stamp is a swan. I was so happy when I found that this set... Continue reading

With this great set, it has several different ideas to use for card making. Each I love. I love the ocean and the beaches, so this stamp really holds a place near in my heart. I love seeing the sandpipers scramble around the ocean edges early in the morning. I created the mood of the ocean using sponges. The sand is colored in sponging using circular strokes. Remember, when sponging, start off the card, not directly on your cardstock. The water, I used stokes with the sponge to try to create the movement of the water, letting the white show...

I would cry if I weren't a big girl. One of my favorite toys are going to be taken away from me soon. I just have to face this the fact that things like this happens even when you are grown up. Yes, the wonderful Wetlands stamp set, Stampin'Up is retiring. I spent this afternoon saying good bye to my good friend. Here are a couple of cards that I created to say my farewells. I will share it with my Cox Landing Library group the first week of May. I used a Mint Macaroon card base. That color is... Continue reading

This week I am celebrating seventeen years as a Stampin'Up Independent Demonstrator. When I look back, it is hard to imagine that when I first started our catalog was only half the size that it is now. There was no such thing as a mini catalog. For embellishments we had ribbon, glitter, brads and eyelets. There was no Big Shot, paper cutters, dies, and all those other goodies. We wanted a shape, we had to "fancy cut" it. While cleaning out a drawer, I found a box of tin-plates for shapes and boxes. Then you traced around the pattern and... Continue reading

Why four legged friends are not invited to stamping parties. If you have a four- legged friend, even though he or she is like family and your best friend, it is best you do not invite it to your stamping party with your two legged friends. I know we all love the little “friends’, but a stamping party is not for them. Some people may be allergic to our furry friend, especially if it is a cat. We do not want our other guest to end up needing to leave early. Some people are allergic to dogs as well as... Continue reading
