Sadly, I find myself in need of a sympathy card this week. One of our stamping friends, Sandra, passed away on Saturday and then her mother passed away just two days later.
I had a little time to stamp yesterday on my day off from school. Yay! I pulled out the Remarkable You stamp set along with one of our retiring in-colors, Blackberry Bliss. I also pulled out the Petite Pairs stamp set for the sentiment. This one is a favorite and it’s retiring, don’t miss out on this stamp set if you like it!
The card turned out so lovely, we’ll just have to make it in the All Occasion Card class this evening!Continue reading
We’re trying out a couple nature scenes in our watercoloring class right now. The nice thing about watercoloring a background in this class is that the watercoloring just takes swiping on colors and then the stamping takes care of all the detail work!Continue reading
You know, one thing I love about creating is the giving. Last Sunday morning I woke up suddenly remembering I had been asked to provide some handmade cards to go in a larger gift for someone. Oops! Hate forgetting! However, cards are not a problem!
I quickly gathered together 15 handmade cards with envelopes and tied them together with some retired ribbon. Cards and ribbon are two things I have in abundance around here! They were lacking something though. A tag, the bundle could use a tag! Hmm, not enough time to make one (these were my thoughts), oh wait, I have lots of handmade tags around here too! Yay!Continue reading
Before you know it, the new Stampin’ Up! catalog will be here! In the meantime, we now know which items will be leaving us and it’s time to grab those items before they are gone!
