I am having a Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree Class next month. We will be making framed Seasons art (this has a biblical verse inside, you can include it or not), four handmade cards with decorated envelopes inside and out AND the cost of the class covers YOU getting the stamp set and the Envelope Liner paper to take home with you along with the cards and Art!!
You get the class, cards, stamp set and liner paper, and what do you pay? Only $38!!
IF you already have the stamp set, just buy a stamp that is equal to the price!
Here are pictures of the cards and framed art. Psssssst! I even teach you how to make a mixture for the trees in the Winter Season!!
You can click on each photo and see them closer. Notice the hand stamped Winter card, hopefully you can see the shimmer! This uses my own concoction from SU! materials!
This is a Pre-Pay class, I want to have the class by the middle of September so the latest you can register is the first week in September!
This was really fun to make, I plan on giving this away for a present!
I can also do a video for each card, if anyone wants to do a class to go, and orders the same amount. This way even if you don’t live near-by or can’t make it to class, you can still enjoy making it at home in your own time!
Today I am going to be sharing with you two of my SU! handmade cards that I have done this week!
The first one is one using the White Simply Pressed Clay along with the Alphanumeric Mold, the Clay is in the Big Catalog but you’ll find the Alphabet/numeric mold in the seasonal catalog (pg 32 #137854, for only $9.95), My friend had the mold so I let her do the letters for me, and once they were dry I cut them (there is a little clay around the letter if you did it right, that you can cut away the excess so the image is really bold!), then I colored them using our SU! Write Markers in these colors: Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Blushing Bride and Rose Red. I used these colors because those are the colors in the DSP I used – Painted Blooms.
This way as usual with Stampin’ Up! everything coordinates! After I applied the color I used Fast Fuse on the back of each letter and adhered it to my DSP. If you haven’t used Fast Fuse, you HAVE to try it #129026, page 204 in the Catalog! It’s the best adhesive that I have tried that works with EVERYTHING!
Once adhered to the Designer Paper, I went over the letters with my Versamark Pad, just pouncing over top of them, saying to myself…..boink, boink, boink……must be watching too may Disney Movies! 🙂
I then sprinkled Crystal Clear Embossing Powder over where I pounced the Versamark and then tipped the card over and flicked off the extra powder, then I heat set it and WOW!, it made the letters look like they were Ceramic! Hopefully you can see that in the picture
I stamped the saying “@numberonemother” from the SU! set @SoSocial, LOVE this stamp set, it has just about everything you would EVER need to say in it! I stamped that saying using Rose Red ink onto Blushing Bride paper and then made it pop out of the side between the Black paper and the Pacific Point Paper. I also stamped the Chevron stamp using Rose Red ink onto Rose Red paper! All Coordinating, and a very awesome card to send to your Mom, or a Mom to be!!
The next project I did was almost COMPLETELY Cased (Copy And Stamp Everything) from Sandy at: StampWithSandy.com I really loved the simplicity of this card, plus it has layers, and diamonds (Rhinestones in SU! speak, but I like calling them DIAMONDS!). the only thing I changed was I stamped my saying “Just Sayin'” from the Crazy About You stamp set onto Baked Brown Sugar (Sandy used Crumb Cake I think) then cut it out with the arrow from On Film thinlits, and topped it off with the Hello You Thinlits. I love arrows! They go with this saying perfectly!!
I stamped the flower in Cherry Cobbler and stamped off the leaves using Baked Brown Sugar, then Put the white and the Bermuda Bay on top of the Base of Baked Brown Sugar! I wrapped the white Bakers Twine around the white, I don’t like it when the ribbon shows on the inside. This was a fun simple card that uses my thinlits (which I LOVE!) and I thank Sandy for the inspiration!
That’s it for me today, it was a long week for me!
Hope your day goes great and hopefully I’ll see you back next week…….maybe with some Blog Candy perhaps, hmmmmm?
Come back again!

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!!
Here are the supplies:
Window Frames Collection #129021
Big Shot #113439
Wetlands stamp set #126697
Inks: Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi.

I am also going to have a ‘specialty’ class where we can make this card and a few others…… I just might post them here!
I love having classes making both SU! handmade cards and Memory Making! I’m FINALLY getting my photos off my computer/phone and out of boxes!
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 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?
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 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:
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!!
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!
This stamp set has everything you need to make a Fall, Halloween and Christmas card! Go to my store and buy yours now!
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!!

In the past PP wasn’t something I pushed since I didn’t think it was worth the money……BUT I have given it another try and I absolutely LOVE it!!! SU! has taken it to another level and includes a lot of goodies in each box!
Give it a try, you aren’t losing anything! You only have till the end of today!
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!
