Amazing Life Retiring Stamp Set!

Be sure to grab the awesome stamp set Beautiful Life before it retires! This set is so easy to work with! This card took no time at all, the large stamp speaks for itself!

After embossing the sentiment, color the banner and letters on the back side of the vellum cardstock, using Stampin’ Blend marker.

Country Home Card

Here’s a card with the flowers from Country Home put in a distressed box! I love how you can color with the white Chalk Pen on darker cardstock!

Hello Cupcake!

Hello Cupcake! Of course, you KNOW I’m going to fall in love with this stamp set! Who can’t say no to sweets?

This was one of the projects we made at Stamp Club this week.

Don’t forget, you can receive my 3 projects completed in the mail for participating in my Virtual Stamp Club!

Be sure and get Lemon-Lime Twist ANYTHING before it’s gone! (or any of the retiring in-colors, for that matter). You know what happens as it gets closer to retirement for these colors. They are GONE and and you aren’t able to get them anymore! I like to give everyone a month warning before this starts happening!

Here are the rest of the retiring colors for 2019! Soon we will bring on the NEW!

Another Carryover – Country Home!

Here’s another carryover stamp set, Country Home! if you enjoy coloring, this one’s for you!

Designer Series Paper is from Festive Farmhouse that recently retired. There are a lot of papers that you can keep using from that paper series that aren’t necessarily Christmas!

Cozy Craft Retreat Projects

I had a couple cards at the Cozy Craft Retreat that weren’t holiday related….this was one of them! This was one of the fastest, easiest cards I’ve ever made! I saw some ideas like this on Pinterest. My sweet hubby bent paper clips for the “paint roller” for all the gals. What a guy! He also sharpened everyone’s paper snips (I forgot to get a photo of that!!!!) He’s always so supportive of my business! The paint roller is an extra fuzzy pipe cleaner. The handle I cut out with my Silhouette machine.

Here’s another card from the All Occasion Stamp a Stack card at the Cozy Craft Retreat, featuring the stamp set PS You’re the Best! I love office-type cards! There were many choices of sentiments to plug in on this card!


Abstract Impressions Floral Card

Here’s a really fast and easy card I CASED from Pinterest (made by Jessica Witty).

To create the banner I just stamped on So Saffron cardstock, then fussy cut. I hand cut 2 small pieces the same width with niches snipped out of each end for the banner look!

The number framelits are retired now 🙁 those are classic that I will hang on to forever!

Be sure to pop up the top layer to give it a 3-D look!

“We Must Celebrate” stamp set is retiring SOON! Get it before it’s GONE!

Waterfront Card

Here’s a card to get you in the spring/summer mood! My friend, Michelle Zindorf walked me through how to create the beach scene that is in the circle, all you do is literally drag your ink pad across the paper! I love this effect! There are so many possibilities with this technique!

I like using Foam Strips to give the chair some dimension, that way I don’t have to trim down Dimensionals to make them fit.

Lots of Love Retiring Stamp

I’m going to miss this stamp (Lots of Love) – I LOVE large bold stamps, they speak for themselves and LESS is MORE! I’m also going to miss the InColor Peekaboo Peach!

I took matters into my own hands and made my own background paper for this card! The white strips are 1/2″ x 5 1/4″, and placed on Basic Black cardstock.

Once the Stamparatus is available for you all in June, you will LOVE using it with large stamps like this – it helps so much if you want to ink it again in the same spot in case some ink missed on the stamped image! Stay tuned!

Enjoy your weekend!

Flying Home Card

This is one of the projects I created for our weSTAMP Regionals Make and Takes. It’s super simplistic, and the cut out heart gives it a pop.

The card is 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. Recipe at the end of the blog post.

After you have the bird image stamped and colored, place a heart framelit right on top of the Very Vanilla piece, centering the little bird in the middle of the heart. Die cut this out, then adhere to Calypso Coral piece using Dimensionals. The heart will stand out.

Don’t forget, with every $50 ordered, you can choose FREE product from the Sale a Bration catalog on the right hand side of my sidebar!

Our first presenter was my sweet friend, Rhonda Morgan! She shared projects using the Petal Passion Suite AND the Memories & More Card Pack! That is a sometimes overlooked item in the spring catalog, and look what she did with it! She is so creative, and it was an honor and pleasure to have her present at our event! Aren’t her projects beautiful? THANKS RHONDA!!!!!
