Butterflies Gala – lore!

Just a little play on words in my title.  One of the new stamp sets and bundles in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog is this fun set of stamps which is called Butterfly Gala. So of course the butterflies just flew off the stamps and onto my card: If you noticed, there are 4 sets… Continue reading Butterflies Gala – lore!

Pretty in Pink

It was a dreary overcast day when I was playing around  and practicing my watercoloring....and using my Aqua Painter, so I decided to make something bright and cheery.  So put your sunglasses on and gaze at my pink creation....shades of Lovely Lipstick and Mango Melody to be exact. This stamp set I used is called… Continue reading Pretty in Pink

All the Glitters….

Christmas is over and it is almost January...just one more day and it will be time to say hello to winter.....unless you live on the east coast of Virginia.  We are having what I consider to be unusually warm weather for this time of year....the temperature has been alternating between the 50’s and the 60’s… Continue reading All the Glitters….

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

Did you know that World Card Making Day is celebrated on the first Saturday in October?  So this year, the actual celebration day is Saturday, October 6th.  I didn’t know there was such a thing, but I shouldn’t be surprised because it seems like everything and everybody has a “special day” now.  And some days have… Continue reading Let’s Make Cards!!

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

Pretty as a…Rusted Pitcher?

I’ve had a lot of fun the past two weeks....I’ve been making cards like a crazy woman. Every time I get a new stamp set and new Designer Series Paper, I just want to sit down and see how many combinations of stamps and paper I can come up with to make a different card.… Continue reading Pretty as a…Rusted Pitcher?

Just A Note, Stampin' Up!, Thank You

Simply Thankful

As Hurricane Florence bears down on the east coast, it’s time step back and just take a moment to be thankful.  Thankful for a Hurricane?  Well, yes....thankful for those who are praying for the safety of people they don’t even know.  Thankful for family and friends who are taking in those fleeing from the storm.… Continue reading Simply Thankful

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

Mix-It-Up Monday – Flying Home

It's Monday again....and time for another Mix-it-Up....combining something OLD (retired item) with something NEW (in current catalog).  The very first time I saw a Stampin' Up! catalog, I saw the Flying Home stamp set (OLD) and wanted to get it. But I hemmed and hawed and kept putting it off...until May when it was going… Continue reading Mix-It-Up Monday – Flying Home
