Three very different WOW cards!

Using Sweet & Precious stamp set

Hey Guys, today I am offering Three very different WOW cards!! If you missed it, click here to see it! For those who have been at a class with me, you might know the Sloth story. Let me tell those of you who haven’t been live with me….Both my sisters with their spouses and Howie and I played a game called The Newlywed Game years ago. All of us had been married a while and thought this would be fun. A question came up “What animal would your Mother in Law be?” The guys had to answer, and my sisters and I thought this should be interesting! My oldest sisters’ hubby answered an Owl, since she is so smart. The youngest sisters’ hubby answered A Pug (what!??), so it was Howie’s turn. Indeed, my husband answered a Sloth, because she is so slow. Yikes!!

I got my sense of Humor from my Mom

Now my mom had survived lung cancer and had half a lung removed. So her health wasn’t the best. Every time the family would meet up in CA all the ladies would go to a Tea Room. We’re sitting at the table and I thought I would tell my mom all about the answers her Son-in-Laws said. Immediately she comes up with a plan, to get revenge.

When we got back to the house where everyone was, she would exclaim that she wasn’t feeling well and lay down on the couch. So, of course we didn’t know the rest of her plan but we went with it. Once she sighs and lays down on the couch all the guys come into the room to be sure she is ok. She says “I’m feeling very…….’slothlike'”. My husband Howie’s face goes white, and he is in shock with his mouth wide open. Then of course he him haws around and says it’s because you are so smart that I said that! Sloths are slow, and they have to be smart to survive! 🙂 Ever since that time my family has loved Sloths! Why she picked on the Sloth and not the Pug, tells me she knew Howie would get a kick out of it!

Now for the Technique

As seen above I shared the Fancy fold first, even though it’s not first on my video. Of course, I HAD to share the story of why Sloth’s are special to me. Three very different WOW cards! I’ve shown you the Fancy fold, now here is the technique! Basically I am a sucker for techniques and this is one of my favorites! Since I have never seen the Northern Lights, I have to make a card with one!

As can be seen on the inside, below….I used ANOTHER technique to make a bookmark! Stampin’ Up! has a new Tool for our Take your Pick tool, and it’s a rotary perforated tool that lets me make a bookmark that can be torn out by the recipient!! Cool, right?!!

In this case, if you look closely you can see where the bookmark will tear off! Obviously you will want to send this to someone who enjoys reading!!

Three very different WOW cards!

So, now we are on to the Cute one!! I love Giraffe, they are my favorite wild animal and I have a few Giraffe items around my house. Chiefly, I have always loved them, but I visited my Daughter in MN and got to hand feed one! Of course that would sell anyone on why these animals are so special!

Card 2 was so much fun!!

This is just too stinkin' Cute!!
Inspired by Annette Elias from Netherlands

Can you see how I surprised myself?

Normally when I stamp I get ideas online (which I did with my 2nd card), but seriously the first card really morphed into this beauty, after Many tries! Don’t you LOVE when that happens?! Especially I love how the Designer Series Paper (DSP) looks like it is one piece. Also that the Parakeet Party is STUNNING with the Gold Shimmer Specialty paper is behind it! Of course, I apologize for using the Retired DSP from SAB Ring of Love, but it is so pretty and if anyone purchases $35 before my next video (10/13/22) I will send you the fixin’s for both cards including the DSP!!

A Sweet Deal just got SWEETER!

During the month of October, Stampin’ Up! is having a joining special! Usually the starter kit is perfect just the way it is, but this time they have upped the amount you get to spend!! For $99 you get to pick out $155 worth of product PLUS get catalogs, a paper pumpkin and ordering forms! Of course, you don’t have to sell to anyone else, I played with my friends and bought what I wanted to keep me happy. Laughingly I NEVER thought that I would STILL be playing with the product AND getting a Discount 19 years later! I have got to tell you, joining SU! was the BEST decision I’ve made (other than having kids and marrying my awesome hubby!)

June Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Pick of the Crop

Hey Guys!, Today I am doing the June Paper Pumpkin Alternatives. This month’s box is called Pick of the Crop, and I had so much fun! It’s not all the time in Life that you can be surprised every month, but you can with Paper Pumpkin! The June Paper Pumpkin is all about fresh things as can be seen flowers and fruits. This box also has a cart that is too stinkin’ cute! Of course, I have a video that I made to make both cards, so be sure and check it out! Of course when making one of the cards for the 2nd time (on video) I HAD to change it up a bit, so make sure you watch to see what I did different.

Thinking of You

On my video I changed up this card, you’ll have to let me know what you think.

You’re the pick of the Crop

My second from the June Paper Pumpkin Alternatives was a fun yet subsequently a super simple card! The cart from the kit is significantly too cute not to use! But I trimmed off the awning and put Dimensionals AND Foam Adhesive strips on to give dimension.

I TOLD you the cart was stinkin’ cute!!

Are you a Discount Shopper?!

As I have previously mentioned I joined the SU! family to get the discount! But, did you know that I got so much more than a discount?! I have met some wonderful people, surprisingly learned a lot about stamping, and have been able to travel to the functions that Stampin’ Up! has! Not only do I have fun but my BEST FRIENDS are also with SU!

Of course

Telling myself when I joined that I wanted to be able to buy what I wanted from the catalogs and that I’m not in this for the money. I am happy to tell you that, at the present time with limits, I buy what I want AND get a Discount! If you would like to be creative, get a discount and have a ton of fun, then join my team: Lets Stamp! By all means, I would love to have you be a part of the SU! family!

Thank you for once again stopping by and visiting my Blog, I really hope that you will join me on my Lives on YouTube! For those watching and leaving comments, of course I have a drawing and send out the cards I made that day! For that reason I Hope you will join me sometime!
