Whale, Hello There

Greetings Stampers!

As we head into the unofficial last weekend of summer, I asked myself, would my readers like to see a summer card or a Christmas card today from my very talented sister.  And, in that debate in my mind, a summer card won.

Before I share that card, remember the Holiday Catalog goes live Friday, September 1.  Also, my Spooky Cat Class By Mail can be ordered beginning Friday, September 1.  All information about that class has been added to the tab at the top of the page.  I also added all the information regarding the Merry Patterns Promotion to another tab at the top of the page.  That way, you always have access to all the details for these two exciting programs!

And now, the super cute card from my very talented sister!  If she keeps making these super cute cards from this set, I'm going to break down and have to have it for myself!

Make A Quilt

Hello Stampers!

Only a couple more days until the Holiday Catalog goes live!  If you don't have one, and you want one, please reach out to me.  I will be happy to drop a catalog in the mail to you!

Today's card features one of my favorite bundles in the Holiday Catalog, Christmas Quilt.  But my card has nothing to do with Christmas.  Take a look!


Isn't it great?  The images are stamped in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Cajun Craze.  The outline and greeting are stamped in Soft Suede.  The entire panel is embossed with the new Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another card using this great bundle.  I'll also announce my September ordering specials and class by mail.  You won't want to miss out!

Giftable Greetings

Greetings friends!

I had such a productive day today - yay for me!  I finished up my swaps for the Holiday Catalog and mailed them off a full 8 days before they are due!  Woohoo!!!  I completed 10 cards today!  And I finished the design work on the projects for my September workshop!  Now, can I keep that up for a week?  I doubt it, but it feels good for now!

Speaking of my September workshop, have you sent in your RSVP?  This will be a good one, I would hate for you to miss it.

Today I'm sharing the August Paper Pumpkin kit with you!  This kit came with all the supplies to complete 8 cards, 8 decorated envelopes, and a gift box!  A really fun kit!  I made up 4 cards - two mostly per the instructions and 2 alternates.  Here are the photos:

Cards in the gift box

The four cards I made.  Love colors this month!









And here is the video from Stampin' Up! on assembly for this month's kit.

Thankful for You

Greetings stampers!

I am thrilled beyond words to finally post a card using my favorite stamp set from the new Holiday catalog.  What set would that be?  Why, Painted Harvest (#144783), of course!  This set is still my favorite, BUT, when you get it in your order, grab some patience and some scrap paper and practice with it.  When I first started stamping with this set, I was so upset with the images.  They were not what I was expecting.  And I kept seeing all these beautiful cards created by others.  I wanted to cry.  But, I kept at it.  And finally, I've created cards I'm happy to share!  My number one tip for this set (besides practice), is to be sure your centers are aligned.  

And now, here is my card!


The colors I used for my flower are Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach.  The center is Soft Suede.  The leaves are Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  The greeting is punched with the Pretty Label Punch.
