One thing that would make this even prettier is to emboss the flowers with Silver Embossing Powder. I didn’t do that, but I DO think it would add to the extreme beauty!

Are you ready for Christmas? Early Bird Special!

What? Christmas already?! Well, I’m not quite ready for Christmas but I can help you make your Christmas cards AND have fun visiting, crafting and meeting new Friends! Every year I have Christmas card classes and it’s all day where we listen to Christmas music, craft, eat, laugh and generally have a ton of fun! I also suggest if you can’t make it live, you can get the fixin’s (I’ve lived in the South too long!) for the cards sent to you at your door! Another way you can be ready for Christmas is to buy the PDF’s all by themselves. Of course, If you are interested click here to see how! I have an Early Bird price so don’t wait, it expires September 1st. However, If you have seen the cards I have made, you know that these will WOW your family and friends!

Thank you so much!

Basically, I always tell you how much I appreciate you and I hope you believe me! Surely you know that I know that you can be anywhere, visiting any other site, but you chose mine! Of course that makes me happy and thankful! Especially, the fact that you are reading this tells me that you value what I bring to the crating world! I especially appreciate that you keep coming back! Particularly important, next week, I will be in Vegas for a SU! function, so I won’t be posting, but I’ll only be gone a week! So, stay tuned!!

Slider Card with a Flying Bunny!!

Hey Guys, It’s a Plane, no it’s a Train, NO it’s a Slider card with a Flying Bunny!! I have seen all over Pinterest and the Web these types of cards. Of course I wanted to try it, but I didn’t want to use the same stamps I’ve seen. Hmmm, what can I use…why the Playing in the Rain stamp set from Stampin’ Up! If you would like to see it made you can click here! Otherwise, you can get the PDF for free if you sign up for my Newsletter! Just click on the link to the right!

This slider card when you pull the ribbon it makes the Bunny Fly!
Isn't this Flying Bunny fun!?

Don’t Forget!

If by chance you purchased product over $50 last month, now is your chance to spend your $5 coupon! After all, who doesn’t love a coupon!?

Happy Anniversary to me!!

Being that I joined SU! 20 years ago, I wanted to Celebrate!! If you are reading this, and you purchase $50 from me in the next month, (Aug-10 to Sept-10) I will send you a gift! PLUS because you spent that amount you will also get the PDF of 16 projects! Now, that is quite the deal!!

Why would I do a ‘job’ for 20 years?

Basically, I have never done anything for 20 years other than my marriage and being a mom! So, why do I stay? Besides being able to stamp every day, I also have met the most wonderful people! Either those whom I’ve met at the SU! functions (going to Vegas in 10 days!!), or those I’ve met in my classes, YOU are all important to me. You make me laugh, cry, get excited and YOU make me feel like I am so talented! Ha! Basically I wish my sister could find the 1st card I ever made…it was so bad I cringe thinking I still sent it out! As far as learning along the way, I do feel like I’ve got this artistic eye I never thought I had! Thank you for sticking with me this long!!

Christmas card class coming in October!

But you will want to pay attention to the details, click here for more info! If you purchase the class before September 1st you get a DISCOUNT! Of course I have purchased a lot of NEW product from the upcoming Mini, and after 15 years I have decided to up the cost of the class. For those who want to come, the cost is $45 if you purchase before the 1st of September, otherwise it will be $50. The reason for the price increase is you will get 16 cards, plus a day of fun, a pdf and FULLY cut/prepared card packets! Plus, I haven’t raised my prices, and have been losing money. Of course I love this class so much, I wasn’t in it for the Money, BUT I can’t afford to give it away. Let me tell you, the cards are WOW’s but not too hard!

Anyone can come to the class and participate, but be ready to laugh, eat, visit and make new friends! Following this class you will go home with gorgeous cards that will definitely set the bar high, and you will have so much fun you will want to do it again next year!

Thanks

Lastly, I would like to thank you for coming here and visiting me! I know you are busy as am I, the fact that you take time out to visit means so much to me! Thank you so much for supporting me and my small business!

Want a discount EVERY time you place a SU! order?

Surely you have heard that when you join the SU! family you get a discount on all the product! But, did you know that you DON’T have to sell anything? Of course, SU! product sells itself, but all you would have to do is share/stamp with your friends. Certainly you CAN sell, but if it makes you uncomfortable, just have friends over and have a crafting day! Basically that is what I did for the first 5 years of my 0ver 20 years being with SU!

Because I don’t like to feel pushy I would have my friends come over to stamp and the product is so good that they wanted it too! Eventually you may want to do more, but you never have to! I have people in my team who have NEVER had a ‘party’! If this is something you would like, join the Tedder Bears by clicking this link!

Have you heard about my Club?

Overall, I want you to consider the BEST club you could join! As has been noted before, my club is called The Stampin’ Besties, and you get between $21-$23 worth of product like DSP, ribbon and Embellishments! But, that’s not all, you get the card packets with everything pre-cut for 6 cards! Moreover, the Holiday Mini is coming out and we will be using some of those bundles! The cost is $40 for in person, and $48 for delivery to your door! Every card is beautiful and some have techniques or fancy folds! If you would like to read more about it, click here!

Thank you!

Basically I want to thank you for spending your time with me. I hope you liked the post – WOW your friends with these handmade cards that I shared with you today! I know you have plenty of things to do and the fact you spent them with me, blows me away! Thank you!!

Faux Bargello Technique

Great way to use DSP in a different way

Hey guys, The faux Bargello technique is one of my favorites. Indeed, I learned it 13 years ago and thought I should revisit it! As can be seen below, this is an easy technique that gives you a distinct look. Overall, you take a DSP and stamp on it, then cut into strips place on a base but be sure to offset the strips just a tad up or down. Of course you can see how I did it, by clicking here. Every Thursday I have videos either Live or Pre-Recorded. This video is live and if you comment while I’m live you get put in the drawing to receive this card in your mailbox!
