Creative Blog Hop!

I have been invited by Frances Wagner to participate in a Monday Creative Blog Hop!  I’m very excited to be asked and I have been creating a bunch of cards for a Class where we get to participate in Sale-a-Bration for one more month!!

We will order in March $50.00 worth of product and then pick out a SAB item for free, then the class will be free!

I plan on Three cards at this event and then I will have a Sale-a-Bration Celebration!  What is that you ask? Well, for those who have received 2-3 SAB items from purchasing through me they get a class for FREE where we will make 5 cards, with door prizes and munchies and LOTS of goodies (presents?) for those who are participating!

This Stampin’ Up! handmade card below uses the stamp set Butterfly Basics, I just HAD to make it once I saw it online, it was made by Erica Logtenberg, the only thing I changed from her absolutely GORGEOUS card was where I put my pearls!  No need in changing a brilliant card!  Make sure you enlarge the picture so you can see how pretty it really is!

The second card I want to show you is one made from Adventure Awaits!  This SU! card is a great card for a Man!  I used the Dots and Stripes Decorative Masks and the Aquamarine Chalk Pad to make these wonderful stripes!  It is a fast and easy card!  Did you know that you can stamp with Chalk ink and then emboss it with Gold Embossing Powder?  I thought I would try it and it worked great!  That way you have less you need to buy to make this Manly card!  I also used Champagne Glitter Paper and cut banner ends to make the main image Pop.

For my last card today, I wanted to show you this really pretty card made using the Artisan Embellishment Kit.  It was fun using the rose piece inside as a mask to sponge my color – Rose Red over my ‘mask’ and then I embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder!  Wow is it shiny!  And you just have to touch it, it is a fun card to look at and texturally (is that a word?!)  :-/   a card that once you give it away the person will want to touch it and ask how you did that!!

The cute little Bee is from the Stamp set from SU! ( I LOVE SU! can you tell?) named Baby Bumblebee.  Once I saw this set I just HAD to have it!  I stamped him on So Saffron cardstock using a juicy StazOn pad (I keep it juicy so I can emboss it using clear EP, I LOVE embossing……it’s like magic every time and you won’t get tired of doing it!)  I did have to cut out the bumblebee, that was the hardest part of this card!!  I used a little heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers which I colored Red with our Blender pens!  This bee is just so stinkin’ cute!

I also used the stamp set Hello Life for the Sentiment on the bottom of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed my part of the blog hop!!  I have been asked to answer some questions, so I will do that before I leave and have you continue your journey!

* What are you working on?

I am constantly working on my next class.  I have a few that I do out of my home in NC, and I also have classes at the Senior Center in my town.  I also have classes at my local Parks and Recreation.  I am waiting for the ok to go through classes to teach at my local Battered Womens Shelter!  I’m very excited to do this, as I was in their shoes a LONG time ago before I met my husband who spoils me MORE than I would ever have  expected!  We’ve been married for 26 wonderful years and have 5 kids and 3 grandkids!

* How does your work differ from others in your genre?

I love to create my own cards, but love to see something from Pinterest and recreate it using Stampin’ Up! product, or if they used SU! already then I usually change it up just a bit to put my stamp on it!  Pun not intended!

* Why do you create what you do?

Before I started stamping, my sister was always doing these really creative things, like making china Christmas Tree Ornaments, or painting china dolls.  I thought that I was not granted the gene of artistry.  Then I went to my first SU! party, I made a beautiful card, and then couldn’t mail it out because it was so pretty!  In my classes, I try to have all the dimensions written down so my friends/clients can recreate what we are making!  I REALLY love it when I see the smile on someone’s face who also thought they weren’t artistic.  And the first class they come to they are changing up one of my cards to fit them!  That tells me that I am doing my job and showing them that they can do this too!!

* How does your creative process work?

That’s a hard one!  It’s really funny that I can look at pretty much anything and think of using a part of what I see on a card!  I can see some colors that I like and then think of what SU! colors will match…..then I just need to figure out what stamp to use and then I am almost done!  SU! makes it really easy to make projects, all their goodies coordinate with each other!  I can also use colors from a certain color family and that will make sure that the colors will go together.  Pinterest helps get my juices flowing and so does the other demonstrators who put their designs on Stampin’ Connection where us demo’s can go and see what others have made using a specific stamp set.

Thanks again for stopping by!!  Come back again!

This handmade Stampin’ Up! card is inspired by Ingrid Blackburn, I made mine into a card, and it isn’t as good as what she did, but I thought it was a good start!  Here is her post.

This was a fun card to make!  Here’s what I learned while making it:  Use Bigger Post-It’s!  That is pretty much it!!  I think my sea/horizon line could be much sharper, but I really love it!!

My daughter took one look at how I did my Pages, that she started doing it for her son, my Grandson (one of the cutest little boys out there!!) and she finished, yes I said FINISHED 5 pages in under an hour!! She told me she had to print more pictures out, she had no idea she could get so much done in so little time!

I can’t wait to see them!

A Happy Thing

I just got back from Stampin’ Up’s! Leadership and they had this stamp set EVERYWHERE!  Luckily I had already earned it (it’s a Sale-A-Bration stamp set or SAB, which I got FREE for purchasing $50.00), so I decided to come up with my own card!!

I didn’t CASE anyone!!  I love when my creative juices are flowing!  I used the ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set (139134) along with ‘Crazy about You’ (137137), which is SO versatile, you can use it on just about EVERY card!!

I am always saying these words “Just Sayin'” so this stamp is  PERFECT for me!  I also used the Daffodil Delight (130998) and Old Olive (130999) Blendabilities (Which you can get for FREE!!) and if you come to my class I will walk you through how to shade this wonderful stamp set!!  I also used the Thinlits “Hello You” (137363).

 AND right now until June 2nd you get the BUNDLE that has the ‘Hello You’ thinlits and the Stamp set ‘Crazy about You’ #139325 (clear) Photopolymer #138873 so you save 15%!!  IF you buy this bundle in the clear or Wood #139324, You can get the ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set that is used in this card for FREE because it is a SAB set!  If you purchase the Photopolymer, which I LOVE, you will need to add another item to your order to get the FREE ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set, you need $50 in US.

I used the Daffodil Delight ribbon #125583, the Specialty Designer Series Paper ‘Birthday Bash’ #137783 and some dimensionals #104430 which will give you MORE than enough to get ‘A Happy Thing!

So, are you ready to see the handmade card?

A-Happy-Thing

You will need to zoom in to see what I used at the bottom of the stamped image, I ruffled some plastic from a clear envelope!  THAT was really fun to do!

I hope you like my SU! handmade card!!

Curvy Keepsake Box CUTE Animals!

I am having a class this weekend, where Moms bring their daughters to come play at my house!

Every month we make between 2-3 projects, and it is so much fun to see the kids bond and show off how much they are learning!

It’s also great that the Moms get to spend QUALITY time with their daughters!!

My daughter started High School this year and I saw that I wasn’t having that much time with her doing something we could both enjoy.  She’s growing up so fast and she’s the youngest of the family and I don’t want to look back with regrets!

If you live near Kernersville NC, Triad area, Winston Salem, High Point or Greensboro send me a message and I can start a class with Your friends and their kids!  I highly recommend that the kids be at least 9, Just don’t look back with regrets! 🙂 Below you will see two of the ideas that they can choose from:

Curvy-Box-Owl-BackCurvy-Box-Owl-Side

 

Curvy-Box-Puppy

 

Aren’t these just too cute!!!!  I also have two cats to let them choose from!!  These boxes are so easy and fun!!!  I can just see them sitting on my daughters dresser!!  And hopefully she is thinking about me when she sees it!!

Holiday Home-Fall

holiday-home-fall-3

I found this hand made card online, sorry can’t recall who did it, but I changed up a few things.  The fun thing I did was use an old Versamark pad that I colored with fall colors with my re-inkers( Crushed Curry, Cajum Craze and Cherry Cobbler!  It stays nice, and as long as you don’t double dip with your stamp, it won’t muddy!!  I used the SU! set Holiday Home and my Stampin’ Up! markers to color it!  The house is cut out with the coordinating framelits from the Holiday Catalog called Homemade Holiday Framelit Dies.  The number for both the stamp set and framelits are:  framelits: 135857, and the Holiday Home is: 135095, BUT you can get 15% off if you buy the Bundle #137631

Here is a picture of what the Versamark pad looks like!!  I got this idea from Sherrill Graff!  I used this for the leaves.  I also used dazzling details for the street lamp and the windows.  Hope you like it!

Ornamental Pine

Ornamental-Pine

 

Here is a handmade  card I made for my Downline meeting swap!!  I LOVE that this is a card I can make in under 3 minutes, and make enough to mail out to my family and friends this Christmas!

The SU! set I used is called Ornamental Pine, I Stamped the Pine stamp with Versamark and then put White Embossing Powder on it, heat it and then I stamped the pine cone and sentiment the same way!  This card uses a Hair Pick Bow, it’s so easy!  If you want to make this very Quick and Cute card, write me a note on this post!

I am making it at one of my classes in October, just not sure which one!!

I would love to see you at one of my upcoming classes!!   Check out my Calendar on my Stampin’ Up! site!

I can also have a party for you, just let me know when you would like to have it, and you can earn free stamps and get a gift from me!!

Very Sparkly Flower Patch

My downline and I made this B-You (Tiful) Card today!!  I absolutely love this stamp set from SU!  Not only does it allow you to do layers, but it has the Framelits for the Big Shot TOO!!

I love the new Embossing folder from our NEW Holiday Catalog 2014-2015 called Filigree Frame Textured Impressions!  It makes a quick and beautiful frame for your hand made art work!

I added Dazzling Diamonds and the new In Color Sequin Assortments along with our small silver brads!  I cut out the ‘B’ with the Little Letters Thinlets, they are only 28.95 and they are the perfect size for cards/Memory Making/scrapbooking!

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I have!  And for those of you in the Kernersville NC area, I’m having the class next week!  Let me know if you want to attend!

Blendabilities + Back to Black DSP = GORGEOUS!

10152670368254345

I made this card after seeing one similar online. I love how it came out! I used the Back to Black DSP along with the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities. These alcohol based markers coordinate perfectly with Stampin’Up! Paper, ribbon and brads! Once you pick out your color that you want to use everything falls into place! If you place an order with me for Blendabilities, I will give you a FREE class teaching you how to use them! We could Skype if you don’t live nearby and I can really show you! I would love if you visit my site regularly.

3d-Card-swap-at-Convention   3d-Card-swap-at-Convention-open

 

This was a really fun handmade card I made to swap at Convention 2014!  It fits in a regular envelope, with the ribbon being a belly band!

The stamp set I used is By the Tide!  This is a really fun set!  I also used Let Your Hair Down which is a Hostess set.

If you would like to make this card come to one of my many classes throughout each month.  I have several where we make 3 ‘Wow’ cards!

I also have a new Mother/Daughter class, that let us mothers spend quality time with our girls before they don’t want to spend time with us!  🙂  Each Mom/Daughter group brings a snack that they love!  It’s a great way to have fun and learn about each other, plus go home with either a card or project that will remind all of us what a great time we had together!

Let me know if you would like to join us!

You can go to my Stampin’ Up! website to order or see my calendar!

I’m really excited to start this new website and I hope you check in regularly!
