Wreaths Belong on Doors

One of my new favorite stamps is the wreath that is part of the Wishing You Well stamp set.  Why do I like it?  It makes me look like an artist when I stamp it!  This stamp set is one of the “distinctive” stamps.  What is a distinctive stamp you say?  Well it’s a special… Continue reading Wreaths Belong on Doors

It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not

Earlier this week I posted about my simple wreath card and the Wishing You Well Stamp set.  You can see that post HERE.  But I still wasn’t done making cards with this stamp set. I was using it for a card class, so I was looking at all the different possibilities....read that “seasons” to use… Continue reading It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not

I’ve never been a big fan of cards that have lots of “stuff” — like layers upon layers of foo-foo and lace and… Continue reading Simplicity At It’s Best

It’s Birthday Season All the Time!

Birthdays happen everyday....and in my family (and friends) I’ve got a slew of them in November & December - 7 in November and 8 in December!  But lately I’ve been playing with some of the stamp sets that came out in Stampin’ Up’s 2018 Holiday catalog.  You know because it’s fun to play with new… Continue reading It’s Birthday Season All the Time!

Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

It’s another Mix-It-Up Monday.  Don’t know what that is?  It’s when I take an OLD (retired) Stampin’ Up Product and mix it up with a NEW (in the current catalog) product. Let’s face it - we spend money on buying things we love so why should we put them away when they aren’t current anymore?… Continue reading Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

Birds of a Feather Flock Together

I enjoyed playing with the Flying Home Stamp Set earlier this week and now I'm back again with more birds. The bird's nest with the Momma and her baby birds just seem to make the best note cards....instead of tweeting on a phone or other electronic devices, I think these birds make a cute way… Continue reading Birds of a Feather Flock Together
