I have a question. I've answered questions before about cards, and if it's from someone whom I can't contact through blogger, I just reply to my own blog post with the answer. I am hoping that you all are seeing them. Or I'm wondering if I should reply with answers in new posts???

Anyway,--Mary Ann, the cardstock I used on the Vintage Vogue card was Ruby Red from the Earth Elements family.

I have created some new cards :) But I haven't taken pictures. I'll get them up here by tomorrow afternoon :)

OH NO! Tell me it ain't so!!! WHERE'D MY MOJO GO????

I've been soo busy with other things lately, that I haven't been stamping. This is the longest time I've gone without stamping for a while. When I sat down at my desk last night, I just couldn't get the juices flowing on things I wanted to create.

I decided to get me going, I would start easy :) So, I went to the basket on my desk. I keep a basket with pieces that I've made for cards, but for whatever reason, they never made it onto a card. I pulled out this LOVE You Much image I'd made earlier and turned it into a card. That wasn't too hard :)
Then, I decided to look through the SAB catalog and saw a card I wanted to copy. I didn't have all the materials but I made do with what I had:) I used all colors from the new BRIGHTS collection we'll have this summer. And I added Summer Sun as the base and for other pieces.
Then I went to the Idea Book & Catalog for inspiration for my next two cards. They're pretty much copies except for some changes in colors :)

Have a great day!! Get some stamping in and don't let your MOJO go!!

We have received some exciting SU news. New color families are coming to Stampin UP!! The new families are going to have the favorite current colors, the most requested in colors are returning, and 5 brand new colors will make their debut (I've marked these is a *)!

There will be 4 families of 10 colors.

Regal Rose
Melon Mambo
Rich Razzleberry
Pacific Point
Tempting Turquoise
Old Olive
Daffodil Delight*
Pumpkin Pie
Tangerine Tango
Real Red

River Rock
Chocolate Chip
Soft Suede
Early Espresso*
Crumb Cake (currently Kraft)
Sahara Sand
Very Vanilla
Whisper White
Basic Gray
Basic Black

Elegant Eggplant
Night of Navy
Not Quite Navy
Always Artichoke
Garden Green
More Mustard
Cajun Craze*
Riding Hood Red
Cherry Cobbler *
Bravo Burgundy

Pink Pirouette
Pretty in Pink
Rose Red
Perfect Plum
Marina Mist *
Bashful Blue
Baja Breeze
Wild Wasabi
Certainly Celery
So Saffron

PLUS we'll also get 5 new in colors in the July 2010 catalog. These new in colors will last 2 years and will become a rotating incolor family of 10 colors (but only 5 will be filled this year). Then in July 2011, we'll get 5 more new in-colors which will last two years, for a total of 10 in-colors. In July 2012, the five 2010 in colors will retire, and we'll get five more. So, after this year, we'll always have a total of 10 incolors.

I really like the new in color families. They're more fashionable and with 10 in each, they're easier to manage.

Stampin UP will make it easy to update your current products if you already own things like the watercolor crayons, marker set, etc. They will have kits that contain just the new products so you can just update your current set and they'll give you a new insert so you can update the information too!

I'm really looking forward to this change!!!!

The sad news is we'll be losing some great colors. Some that we're losing, I won't be crying over. But there are a couple of really great colors that I will miss. If you have a favorite color that isn't on the above list, place your order now!! I have a feeling there will be a run on colors as people stockpile their favorites.

Since I've learned about the retiring colors, I've decided to dedicate the next two months to making great cards that feature these soon to be gone colors. So, keep checking my blog!!

Inspired by Nature Happy Birthday

I used Always Artichoke, Pale Plum and Perfect Plum for this green and purple birthday card. It's hard to tell in the picture, but I made a shimmer mist from SU Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol and spritzed it onto the flowers. So, they have a sparkle :) I really like this card, and it was so easy! Inspired by Nature has to be on of the best stamps of all time!!

Cedarville Sock Monkey

This is a card I made for ds. He goes to Cedarville University and they have a yearly program called Elliv (ville spelled backwards). So, the week of this special program, I'm sending him this card :) I used the Linen Background stamp to make Sock Monkey look like he's made from material. Tomorrow I'll have something for you besides Sock Monkey :)

Hill Billy Sock Monkey

Paper piecing sock monkey is one of my favorite things to do. Well, when I first got him, I stamped his mouth on some red polka dot designer series paper. After I cut out the mouth and glue it in place, I realized the polka dots were right where teeth would be and I started cracking up. So, this card became HillBilly Sock Monkey :) I've got to come up with some cute saying for the inside. Any ideas???

Another Live With Passion Birthday card

Before I got busy with gardening, I'd cut pieces for a card based upon one that I'd seen at my upline's house. This morning I decided to finish that card, and only when I came to my blog this morning did I realize how close it is to the other Live With Passion birthday card I posted a few days ago. I think I was waiting to finish this card until I could get a book I was willling to punch the pages. My upline had made her flower out of printed book pages (which looked really good because it added another black element to the design). I didn't have a book I was willing to punch though, so I went to designer paper. It's so nice to work with these bright colors. I'm definitely in the flower mood with the warm weather and being outside gardening!!

Have a blessed Easter!!!

Missing in action again

Hey, everyone! I'm still around, but I haven't been stamping! This is the longest in a long time that I haven't stamped!

I decided just a week or so ago that I wanted to put in raised garden beds via Square Foot Gardening. I've gardened with this method before, but it's been years. So I've been busy researching some different things. I'm still in research mode for the plants I'll be growing. But I've got my lumber cut and ready for DH to build the beds this weekend, and I've found a place to get some nice rich mushroom compost and peat moss so I can get my soil in shape. I hope to have garden beds by the end of this weekend :)

Yesterday, life was interrupted with a bomb scare. The police suspected a bomb nearby and evacuated the area. It turned out to be safe :) So, I didn't get much done yesterday--and my friend whom I visited didn't get much done either!!

Then, today I went to a cooking class for making whole wheat bagels!! Yum! Yum!!

Now, I'm back and focused on the garden, at least through this weekend.

I hope to make some cards again next week :)

Watercolor Wonder Crayons

I love the Watercolor Wonder Crayons. They are soo smooth when you use them. And they're a bargain because you get the whole color family for just under $20. If you've never used them, here is a video put out by Stampin UP that shows you how.

Three Spring cards

I made three different spring cards while watching TV last night. I really like how they turned out. I've added them to my Etsy shop, so if you like them too, you have the opportunity to buy them!

I especially like using Dazzling Diamonds and rhinestones on the eggs (made from the wide oval punch).

For the bird in the nest, I used Nature's Nest and stamped the nest and cut it out and then applied Crystal Effects to it. While it was wet I clipped pieces of browns from the Earth Elements into the wet glue. Then the bird is the Two Step Bird punch.
The last one was a quick card that used some stickers that I have. I had bought them for a scrapbook page, but thought these made a cute Mother's Day card.
I hope you enjoy them.

Easter Card with bunny

Another Easter card. It uses a mixture of stuff I've had from when I first started papercrafting and my Stampin Up supplies. The bunny and grass are from some retired dies that I got a couple of years ago. I used Pretty in Pink chalk to color the bunny's ears and the Going Gray ink with a blender pen to color the eye. The little flowers are from the Flower Trio punch and the sequins in the center are ones that my grandmother gave me :) The sentiment is from the stamp set Well Scripted.

I made up an Easter Kit in my Etsy shop to share some of these things if anyone is interested in making their own creations along these lines.

Live With Passion birthday card

I got the idea for this card yesterday afternoon while stamping with my upline, Mary Atwood. She always gives me great ideas! Mary made a bright card similar to mine and used the sentiments "Live with passion" on the outside, and on the inside she used "Wishing you the happiest birthday yet!" I thought that was a genius combination!

Supplies used:

Cardstock--Summer Sun, Cameo Coral, Whisper White, Basic Black

Designer Paper- Pink Flamingo

Inks- Black Staz-on, Cameo Coral

Accessories- dimensionals, cordouroy button

Stamp sets: Inspired by Nature, On Your Birthday, Itty Bitty Backgrounds

Tools: Extra Large Fancy Flower punch

One of my favorite layered flower cards

This is one of my favorite layered flower cards. It's made the same as the other flower cards that I've video taped. You punch your flowers, crumble them, uncrumble them, distress the edges with ink, layer them, punch your hole through the center with the crop'odile, set your eyelet, then wrap your ribbon around your card, bring the ends up through the center of the flower and tie. Simple! But I love the look!

Easter projects for my March class

Hey, everyone! These are the projects we made in yesterday's class. The little basket is made from the Scallop Envelope die. I'm going to use my basket for my husband for Easter with a few of his favorite treats :) He's got a sweet tooth.

I love this card! I designed the card to coordinate with the basket, so the people attending my class could use them together as a set. I love the stamp set, Abundant Hope, that I used on the card. It's cheap, just $13.95! What I really like is the Christian sentiment that comes with it "Rejoicing with you in the abundant mercy and hope of Christ the Lord." And then the images, a scroll (that I didn't use on the card) and the daffodils, I'll use all year. I think it would make a beautiful sympathy card. I hope it makes it into the new catalog that comes out this summer, because I plan to use it a lot!!

Well, this is all I can share today. I'm visiting cosmetology schools with my daughter today. She thinks she wants to be a hair stylist and wants to attend cosmetology school this summer and through her senior year. So, we're off to check it out.

Easter Blessings Card

This card uses the stamp set Easter Blessings. Except for my boo-boo this was an easy card to make :) Too bad the camera doesn't catch the popped up flowers. I think it looks better in person than in this photo. Oh well!

Tomorrow, I'll have pictures of the projects we'll be doing at my Thursday morning class. But no guarantees of a video as I'll be concentrating on my upcoming class :)

Have a great week!

Scallop Flower Birthday Card

Today, I thought I'd show you how to make the scalloped flower birthday card I posted earlier. This is almost like the card I showed in my last post, except I used last year's in colors. I really like this card. It's surprising how quick it is. These flowers aren't just great for cards, but you can use them to decorate a small gift box or gift bag.

I'll see you tomorrow with something new :)

Layered Scalloped Flower Birthday Card

Hey,everyone!! This is just a quick post of a card I made a while ago. I think I showed it in a video on making another type of paper flower. I will be making a video of this card next week. It's really easy and fun. These flowers are addictive.

I'm enjoying my son. It's soo good to have him back home, even though it's just for a week. :)

Tonight is the midnight showing of Johnny Depp's Alice in Wonderland. My daughter is having an Alice in Wonderland tea party beforehand with some friends and then going for the midnight showing and my son is meeting some friends there tonight too. I've got a lot of things to get done before the girls come!!

Have a great day!!

Easter Chick punch art card

Hey, everyone!!

I've been waiting to make this card for a week now, but I had to get some yellow feathers first!! If I'd had a yellow feather duster, I would have plucked a few and made it immediately!! I finally sat down and made it this morning.

I really like how it turned out. Except you can't see the edge of the punched grass, cuz' this guy's feathers are just too fluffy--LOL! But it was a surprisingly easy card to make.

I didn't make a video today because I have a lot to do today :) My son is coming home from college for spring break. He'll be here for the next 10 days. I probably won't make any videos during that time. But I'll probably still make it up into my stamp room here and there. When I do, I'll post pictures of what I make :)

If you want a video for this card, let me know and I'll film it after spring break.

Until then, here is what I used.
PUNCHES- wide oval, scallop edge (for grass), modern label, word window, Heart to Heart (beak) punch
Other tools: Scallop Circle Die, and 4" circle
Cardstock: Whisper White, Green Galore, Orchid Opulence, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange, Pretty In Pink

Have a great weekend!!

What to do with ribbon scraps!

Hey, everyone!!

A while ago, I saw on Michelle Wooderson's blog a neat idea for making ribbon strips to use up ribbon scraps. Today, I finally decided to give it a try. In the video, I used a rotary cutter, because that was what Michelle had used. But I was pleased to discover the the Stampin UP craft scissors had no trouble cutting through the layers of cardstock, sticky tape and ribbon. In the video, I show you both methods, so don't freak out when you see me with the rotary cutter and start thinking that you'll never be able to make ribbon strips. I show you the scissor method right afterwards. If you have SU paper and craft scissors you'll have no problem at all.

So, whatever you do---don't throw out those ribbon scraps!!

I had to edit down this video too! I don't know what is with that!!

Part of what I edited out was blooper worthy! Someday I'll collect all those and post a blooper video. Also, at the beginning of this video, I say I'm going to make an Easter card. Well, it ended up being just a general card.

Thank Goodness For Punches!!!

Punches have saved me on more than one stamping occassion. They got me through several baby showers when I didn't own a baby stamp set!! And today they helped me create a St. Patrick's Day card without a St. Patrick's Day stamp set. Now, using the hearts to make a shamrock isn't my creation. I've been it around on blogs for a couple of years. It was filed away in my brain for a day like today!

Now, making my own colored glitter might be my own creation, I some other stamper has thought about this by now, I'm sure??? I dunno. I was originally going for a mixture of different green glitters, but as you'll see in the video I accidentally dropped TWO drops of reinker instead of one into my glitter--so it all ended up the same color. Anyway, it still worked out great.

I had to cut over 3 minutes from the video, so you might notice some chopiness. I hope you stil enjoy it :)

Vintage Vogue Cracked Glass

I decided to do the Vintage Vogue and the cracked glass technique together. I hadn't done this technique since last summer with the 24-7 stampset. It's a fun technique.

When you crack your "glass" you can get different results. The colder your paper and the quicker you crack your glass, the deeper the crackers. The warmer your paper and the slower you crack, the more subtle the cracks. Error on the side of being subtle. You can always stick it back in the freezer and recrack it. If I had to do it over again, I would have gone slowly and allowed the card to warm up a bit. (It had been in the freezer for a while because I got sidetracked on the computer).

In the video I do 4 coats of Versamark and Glassy Glaze embossing powder, but you can probably do 2-3 if you get good coverage. You want your embossing to create a shiny smooth surface without dimples. Also, I say to keep the card in the freezer for 20-30 minutes. 15-20 will probably do you. My card was curled up it was sooo cold--LOL!!

Hope you enjoy the video.

ETA: Oh boy!! I edited this video twice and both times have made a mess of it. Thank you, anonymous, for letting me know that the embossing part got cut from the video. I apologize to everyone for that. I'm editing it again and putting it up on youtube when I'm through :).

Vintage Vogue Flower Layers

These are two cards I made this morning. I made the distressed one first. My daughter thought it looked too dirty. So, I decided to go back to my stampin table and see what I could do with some brighter colors and without the distressed look. And todays video is what I came up with. My daughter likes this new one better. I still like my distressed one best :) Different styles for different people, I guess! I hope you enjoy the video!!

Saturday, February 20, 2010

MIA this weekend

I will be back Monday with a new stamping video. I'm enjoying the weekend with family and friends. And it's a beautiful day here--sun shiny and warm. I hope you enjoy your weekend!!

Chalkboard Technique with Vintage Vogue

I love the chalkboard technique. You can see in my history where I used it with the set Inspired by Nature. I think it turned out great with the Vintage Vogue stamp set too! It's much more stunning in person. I wish you could see it in real life! My daughter even liked this card!!

Here is how you do this technique.

With All My Heart sponged card

This is a quick, simple and economical card that's fun to make. All you need is cardstock, ink, and the With All My Heart stamp set and a sponge.

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Embossed Ribbon

I've been hearing about embossed ribbon and I finally decided to give it a try. It's so simple and definitely has a WOW! effect!!! I will for sure be using this technique a lot!

I wanted to break out the set Three Little Words which I got for free for Sale-a-bration. I've been admiring this set since it came out and I'm so glad I got it. I didn't do anything fancy with it today--just a simple 5 minutes and you're out the door card.

I wanted something simple today and this fit the bill!

Monday, February 15, 2010

It's that time of year again!

Hey everyone! I had to take a small break so I could finish our taxes and our FAFSA (for student aid for ds who is in college). Anyway, I finished it all today, but I'm worn out!! I'll be back to normal tomorrow and will post a video. Thanks for checking my blog!!

Easter Egg Card

Hey everyone!

If you decide to make today's project, you're going to love it. These Easter eggs are so much fun to make. This would make a great card to do with the kids too. Your eggs can be as simple or as complex as you'd like. Today I used cardstock, designer series paper and different embellishments. You could also do techniques like the Shaving Cream technique (you can check out my video tutorial (non easter)for that from last year). Anyway, I'm be making more egg cards this weekend and they'll be up in my Etsy shop. And I'll post them on my blog too, so you can see if there's anything you'd like to copy.

I hope you enjoy these.

Valentine's Day card using a paper doilie

Hey, everyone! I've been wanting to play with paper doilies for Valentine's Day, but time has been getting away from me. Today I finally sat down and made a card with a doilie. I think doilies are fun!! I tried punching the doilie, but didn't get clean cuts. So, I skipped the punches, but I think if I get time before Valentine's Day, I'll have to try cutting the doilies with our Big Shot dies and see what I can make with them. If you decide to make something with a doilie, I'd love to see it!! You can email me at

How do you like those next pictures? It's what my video taping table looks like after I've made something!! The good news is that this fall we redid my stamping room and now everything has a place. So, it only took 5 minutes to clean up!! That's a good thing!! :)

Well, here is a video of me making the card. Please excuse my sniffles, my allergies started acting up today right before filming this video. If I had to wait until everything was perfect, nothing would get done! So, I went ahead and filmed, but I didn't realize how bad I sounded!! Bear with me!!

Monkey Swinging From Vine Birthday Card

Two variations of the same card. The first one is super easy. And Economical and quick--all important when mass producing something. The second one adds more layers (1/4" was removed from all four sides of the first card, and then it was adhered to a 4 x 5.25" chocolate chip cardstock) and also some dimension with the pop up monkey face (monkey was stamped in chocolate chip on creamy caramel cardstock and then cut out). If you have noticable sponging in the monkey face, this is a good solution for fixing it.

Here's a video for how to create the first card.

Nature's Nest masculine birthday card

This is a birthday card I made with the Nature's Nest set. I love this set!! I'm partial to nature stamps anyway. Unfortunately, I haven't had played with this set enough. I hope you don't mind that I took a break from the Occassions mini catalog to play with this set. I just love it!!

Here is a video tutorial for how to make this card. It's a bit choppy because I had to edit 4 min 30 seconds out of the video. Anyway, I hope this helps you figure out how to copy my card.

Mother's Day Card with paper flowers

Here is a simple little card for Mother's Day.

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

Do you know what today is?

It's Ground Hog's Day!!! And it also is my daughter's birthday!! She used to be upset that her birthday was Ground Hog's Day. She doesn't care anymore, but when she was little, she did! LOL! Of course, her grandpa loved to get her going--he would call her on her birthday when she was about 3 and ask her if she knew what day it was--Ground Hog's Day; she'd vehemently tell him, "No, it's MY birthday!!" LOL!

Well, today is my daughter's 17th birthday. So, I got up early (for me :) this morning and made her a card. I brought you on the journey :) I'm editing the video now and will post it later :)

Valentine's Gift Set

This month, I've shown you how to make the altered Dentyne Gum Holder (January 10th) and how to make the mini note pad (January 12th). Today, I've put them together with Bath & Body Works hand lotion to make a gift for a friend. I used an old tin that held licorice (it was a Christmas gift). I covered the tin with Razzleberry Lemonade designer series paper.

Then I created a tag using the Happy Heart Day stamp set. To get the stamped image different colors, I colored the stamp with Melon Mambo(flower), Old Olive (the stem), and Rich Razzleberry (words), then huffed on the stamp, then stamped it onto the Whisper White cardstock. I used a strip of Razzleberry Lemonade, some in color punched flowers with the Boho Blossoms punch, and finished it off white Rhinestone brads.

The secret to getting this great look was using the same Designer Series paper. It just made everything coordinate. I hope this gives you some ideas!!

Simple birthday Card

This is a quick and easy card. I used the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper and the Sweet Pea Felt and some Pretty in Pink ribbon to do the work on this card. I used Well Scripted for the sentiment and stamped it on a Hugs cardstock (the scalloped white piece). I love how it looks and it was soo quick.

C-ya tomorrow!

Conversation Hearts Treat Holder video tutorial

Before I talk about this project. I need to tell you something!!

It's snowing!!! It's snowing!!! I haven't seen snow like this in YEARS!!! I grew up in Ohio, but early in our marriage we moved south. I **DO** love the south!! And I really don't like snow, but it's so pretty when it falls. I like seeing the pristine snow from inside a warm house :)

One year we had about a half inch of snow and my daughter managed to roll three snowballs, taking up every inch of snow in our yard, and made a snowman with it. My picture shows a snowman on green grass!! LOL!

We've got a LOT of snow!! I think we're going to get over 6 inches!! My daughter is excited!!! I called my son who is college in Ohio--he wasn't as impressed (as he's been living with snow all winter! LOL!)

Anyway, here is a video tutorial for you! I got these treats at Dollar Tree. They had them in 4 packs for $1. So this treat is economical and quick!!

Until tomorrow--happy stamping!!

Explosion Box tutorials

These are the tutorials that describe how I decorated the inside of my box and the outside. The videos have all the measurements, products used, etc. I also discuss choosing pictures etc. I hope this helps you create an explosion box of your own. Next week I should have the cost of offering this as a kit and I will post that information on my blog.

How to make the structure of the Explosion Box

Here is the video for how to make the structure of the explosion box I showed you yesterday. If you have any questions, please ask. This is the first video I've tried to do of something that is very detailed, so I might not have explained it well enough. I'd be happy to answer any questions. I hope you enjoy making these. They're really fun!

I'm working on editing and uploading the instructions for the inside of the box. I hope to have all those uploaded tomorrow :)

Explosion Box with Vintage Vogue and With All My Heart

Hey, everyone!

This is the exploding box I was working on yesterday. My daughter has claimed this for pictures for her and her friends :) I hope you like it as much as she does. I'm working really hard on getting the video tutorial together for how to make the structure of the box; I've just got some editing to do for that. I'm also working on filming instructions for how to do the different flaps. I've been doing this between visiting with my family. Today is their last day so it might be late tonight before I can post again. So until then, here are some pictures.

I've also been thinking this might be good to offer as a kit. Let me know if you'd be interested.
