Stamping Technique!

Hey Guys, a Stamping Technique is the theme for today! Of course I stamp almost every day, but I haven’t done Emboss Resist in YEARS! Even though I’ve done it before I had to look it up since it’s been so long! If you would like to join me in my Live and possibly get one of the cards click here for the video! But, did you know if you join Live on YouTube you can be in the drawing for getting one of the cards I make delivered to you!?

Stamping Technique=Emboss Resist!

Did You Know?

In brief, a Stamping Technique is not the only thing you can do. Did you know that both cards use product that are from Sale-a-Bration? What does that mean? It means that for money you are already spending on product from SU! you can get these sets for FREE! Of course there is a qualifying purchase to get them, but who doesn’t love free things!? For this reason be sure and check out what goodies you can get! Another great thing about SAB is that you can also join and get either the Glass Mat or extra $$ when you join! Click here to join my Team and become a Tedder Bear! Of course I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t tell you how you can maximize your investment and get a discount!

Do you have a New Years’ resolution?

Funny thing, I don’t usually have a resolution, but this year I decided that I am sharing my history with my kids. 2 years ago on Christmas my Daughter bought me a StoryWorth subscription where she picked out questions and I answer them. Of course, this is not stamping relevant, but thought it interesting enough to share with you! In short, I only did 9 stories in the entire year, so this year I am dedicating every Friday to tell 1 story!! Wish me luck that I keep it up, you KNOW what New Year Resolutions end up being!! 🙂

Finally enough with a Stamping Technique

Owing to the fact that I REALLY love that you visit me and support my small business, Thank you! In short, I appreciate that you take time out of your schedule to visit me! Of course my wish is that I will make something that inspires you! Most important is that I get you excited to stamp and make memories for you and your loved ones!

Who Doesn’t love a Carousel!?

Hey Guys, Who Doesn’t love a Carousel!? I love horses period, you would think that a Carousel wouldn’t be fun, but it is! Of course it brings back memories of when my kids were little and HAD to ride every time we saw it! As always since it is Thursday I have a video for you where I make this card, if you missed it, click here.

World Card Making Day

World Card Making Day is on the 7th of October, can you believe it’s almost October already?! If you would like to stamp along with us, you only need to Register before the 7th. Of course, Stampin’ Up! has stamp sets that can be substituted for the ones they use. Indeed this should be fun and we can spend stamping time together and get all sorts of ideas!!

Join the SU! Family and get Discounts!

Equally important to being able to craft, you can get your supplies at a discount! Besides meeting other Demo’s you can be a Happy Shopper because you can buy more if you join! Previously I have told you that I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t tell you about the BEST DEAL all the time, and that is to be a Discount Shopper and join my team! Equally important is for you to know that you DON’T have to be a ‘Demo’, you don’t have to put yourself out there and be uncomfortable. Indeed I only stamped with friends and myself for YEARS before I wanted to make some money with SU! If you are interested, click here to get more info.

Once again, Thank you!

Above all, I want to thank you for being here! Undoubtedly you could be anywhere else, but you chose to be here with me! Of course I tell you every week how thankful I am for your support, but do you know that I REALLY mean it!? I’m not a BIG Demonstrator, I do my thing and stay busy.

Fun & Funny Stamping

Featuring Beautiful Balloons and Hey Chuck

Hey Guys, Fun & Funny Stamping is right up my Alley!! Of course I love to laugh (who doesn’t!?), so I made one of the cards super funny (at least to me). Every day I look in the mirror I SEE that I love to laugh! If you would like to join me on my Live and watch these cards being made, click here! As can be seen in this card Fun & Funny Stamping is the best!

Fun & Funny stamping, I used Wonderful Thoughts to make this funny.

Fun & Funny stamping – THIS is my FUN card

Who doesn’t love Frills!? The dies for this Balloon stamp set has Frills! Definitely, I wanted to show how you could look at the catalog and use the images to make something. Especially since the Stampin’ Up! catalog is FULL of ideas! Moreover I used the design for this card from the catalog, BUT the card in the catalog was a Slim Line card. So, I decided to use the design but make it different, so I could be me.

This is the FUN part of 'Fun & Funny stamping'

New Catalog is Now out!!

Surely, you know if you follow Stampin’ Up! at all that our new Catalog is now out! Of course as soon as I saw the Hey Chuck set I HAD to get it! Then I saw the Balloon set and when you put the Dies together with the set, it’s perfect! IF you like the Hey Chuck set and want to get a PDF of 16 card projects using NEW sets click here! Furthermore I added my Host code to that link, so you could get BOTH the stamp bundle and the PDF!


At this point, I’m sure you know what I’m going to say! Of course I am going to tell you that I appreciate you coming here and reading my post! The fact that you are here makes me so excited that you like what you see/read! Please come back next week when I will be having another video to share! YOU are the reason I do what I do, thank you!

Stamps & Dies Unconventionally

Rhino Ready done creatively

Hey guys, today I am using stamps & dies unconventionally by making the dies/stamps creatively. Of course my brain went somewhere different! When I saw the dies, the trunk reminded me of Lightning. So, I HAD to try and see what I came up with! Now, that’s just one card, the other has the Rhino from the Rhino Ready stamp set hiding in the grass, getting ready to jump into action! Most importantly you can go see the video where I make both cards here!

Stamps Unconventionally

Stamps & Inks unconventionally, this time it's the stamp I used differently

Want a FREE Pdf of BOTH of these projects!?

Every time I have a video I make a PDF for my projects. After that, I send out a Newsletter with the PDF’s included! How do YOU sign up for the Newsletter? It’s easy, you only need to look at the right when you’re reading my blog and fill out the form for my Newsletter! Because I don’t send out Newsletters EVERY week, I send out what I made between the Newsletters. This way you won’t miss out on anything, but you are also not getting a NL EVERY week! Of course, I am one of those ‘giving people’ so I want to be sure that you have access to whatever I make. So, my ask is that you sign up! After all, you only need to look at the things I have blogged to give you an idea of what you will be getting, click here to see!

Join the Besties Club!

Important to realize is that I offer a Club that is probably the BEST deal you will come across! Basically the Besties are my 2 Friends and I each make 2 cards using the same products (ever see Chopped!?). This must be remembered that the three of us have the same product to use, we NEVER come up with the same ideas! Of course there is no kidding here, every month I learn something new and I have been stamping for over 22 years!

Another key point, each month with your kit you get $22 approx. of product! Chiefly it is a roll of ribbon, a package of Embellishments and a half pack of DSP, plus you get a PDF with all 6 projects! Moreover, you will get all the ingredients to make the cards (cut & ready for you to put together!) we also have a Facebook group where we have contests, share tips and have fun! You also get a pillow gift! All this for $40 for porch pickup or $47 if I need to mail it!

Of course we also tell you what is coming the next month so if you want to buy the stamps/bundle you can, but it is not necessary you can always use what you have on hand! To emphasize, this month is our TWO year anniversary! Certainly when we started I don’t think any of us thought we would be still going strong two years later! To explain, If you want more info look at the top bar on my blog and click on The Stampin’ Besties Club.


Certainly, I always say thank you in this spot. But I’m not sure if you realize how MUCH I appreciate you being here! As a matter of fact, I know you have choices for where you spend your time. At the same time, If you spent ANY of it with me, I am thankful! Of course, my hope is that I can help you with your crafting needs too! Given that, see you next time!

SAB is almost here!

Nevertheless, every week, I go through what I want to show you, and this week I didn’t have to look very hard. Because the Adorable Owls set is just like it says, stinkin’ ADORABLE!

Want FREE Pdf’s?

Of course, you can get two different PDF’s from me: One that I send out every week that corresponds with my weekly YouTube/Blog posts. The 2nd one is at the present time, one I send out that has 16 projects for those who spend $35 or more. Specifically, the latter is to reward those who order and the 1st is for everyone who subscribes to my Newsletter for free! I equally love them both, however they both rock for different reasons. Since the one with the 16 projects is done by 15 other people and myself. Undeniably anything I can get ideas for that I don’t have to come up with is awesome! And this group is full of talent!

Emphatically, I LOVE my cards, and want to share them with you! But, the easiest way is to put them into my Newsletter, all you have to do is sign up and Voila you get them each week! Besides did you know that I used to think I had NO CRAFTING talent!? It wasn’t until I got into Stampin’ Up! that I found out that it’s not as hard as I had at first thought! Forthwith let me know if you would like to learn anything, or need help in finding your Crafty MoJo.

Get in on being a Happy Shopper

Copy REAL Picture

Beach scene Google Pics recreated with stamps!

Hey Guys, of course today I am going to show you how to copy a REAL picture using stamps! Earlier on Google I saw a picture of a beach with palms and the ocean.

I'm going to copy this REAL picture using stamps!
Google Pic I’m copying

Copy a REAL picture!

Finally below you will see the card I made plus be able to get this stamp Bundle at a DISCOUNT, but only for a limited time! Also, I am offering a free PDF to anyone who stops by and reads this post. To start with, I wanted to make a Beach Scene using this stamp set (Paradise Palms), but didn’t know what to make. Earlier, I googled Beach scenes and the above picture jumped out at me. Correspondingly the Pdf below will step you through my process, but you can indeed also see me make it here.

My copy of REAL picture!

I copied a REAL picture with Stamps from SU!
I hope you love it as much as I do!

Card 2

However for my 2nd card, I wanted to highlight the Dies in the set. Indeed, I am not going to copy a REAL picture this time! Basically, I found a card on Pinterest from Tina Wardell, that inspired me. Evidently, when using the Blending Brushes, I chose three SU! colors that I thought looked like a night sky falling. Moreover, I Divided the space into 3 so I could make the Palm tree pop, check out my Pdf to see how or again watch my video.

NOT copied from a REAL picture
Little Paradise

As I said earlier, get this Bundle (stamp set & Dies) at a 10% discount, if you purchase before June! It won’t be discounted once the new Catalog comes out.

In short, if you buy $35 or more from my OnLine Store you will also get a PDF from me containing 16 projects with step by step instructions along with color photos of the projects! Therefore, here is a sneak peek!

Wrapping it up!

Again thank you for stopping by. of course, if there is anything you would like me to use or a technique you’d like to see, leave me a message and I’ll do my best! Indeed, I love a challenge! Otherwise I will try and think of what you would like! Surely you won’t mind letting me know what you would like to see! Especially, I love to get feedback! Another key point is I love to learn!
