Lotus Blossom

Lotus Blossom sample-3

This is the third card we made at stamp club this month with the Lotus Blossom stamps set.

It uses one of my very favorite colors – Coastal Cabana – with Bermuda Bay.

Is it really going to be a retiring color come next annual catalogue???  I’m starting to stress over it…

I did receive my very first Paper Pumpkin craft kit in the mail last week and kinda squealed.  There are A LOT of stamp images included in this month’s kit. Have you seen it yet?

My oldest daughter and I took a few minutes last Saturday and put a few of these fun guys together.

Can’t wait to see what next month’s kit is going to be!!

Don’t forget – during Sale-A-Bration – you can order a 3 month subscription for a lowered price of $68.85.  This also qualifies you for a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration offerings!  It’s a win-win!!!

Place an order HERE with item #137859 (3 month subscription) and get a FREE product!

Irresistibly Yours Specialty Paper

February 27th, 2015 | Comments (0)

Lotus Blossom sample-2

I loved getting together with my stamp clubs last week and featuring some Sale-a-Bration items Stampin’ Up! is offering FREE with any $60 purchase this year.  The Lotus Blossom stamp set is SOOOO fun to work with and it has pretty forgiving images too, meaning, you don’t have to line everything up perfectly to make a striking flower!  Bonus for us stampers!!

The other free item on this card is the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper.  This paper package is on page 15 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure and it’s hard to tell what the paper actually looks and feels like by the product photo.  Each page is a strong white cardstock with clear embossed images on it.  You can add color to the cardstock by sponging, spritzing, stamping, coloring, etc.  The embossed images resist the color and a pattern emerges as ink is added creating your personally designed DSP!!

To create the background paper I used on today’s card, I sponged the Irresistibly Yours cardstock with Pear Pizzazz and a sponge avoiding some of the edges and corners.  I then stamped some images from Gorgeous Grunge in Always Artichoke ink and finished it off by buffing the whole piece with a clean dry tissue.  This removed any ink on the embossed sections and kept everything in the background.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Lotus Blossom, Gorgeous Grunge

Ink & Paper – Whisper White, Irresistibly Yours DSP, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Always Artichoke, Pear Pizzazz, Stazon black ink

Accessories – Big Shot & Deco Labels framelits, dimensionals, rhinestone gem

What is your favorite Sale-A-Bration offering this year?

Computers – love em’ or hate em’?

February 26th, 2015 | Comments (0)

Good grief!  I have not been able to get onto my website to post for about 10 days now!  Everytime I turned my computer on, the wireless router would stop working on all devices in our home.  After three new routers, two trips to our internet provider, and countless problem solving hours put in by my genius husband Chris, he has found the source of the problem – my new camera program.  Ugh!  Now, I have internet on my computer, but am not able to download any new photos until Chris has time to figure out why the internet/router hates my Canon camera program.

Good thing I have a bunch of projects to still show you from my February events!

Lotus Blossom sample-1


For my stamp clubs this month, I featured the Sale-A-Bration stamp set – Lotus Blossom.  It has been the most favored SAB product by far this year – most of my customers have chosen it as their FREE product in January – and I wanted to make sure everyone knew how to get the most from their FREE stamp set.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Lotus Blossom, Hardwood, Gorgeous Grunge

Ink & Paper – So Saffron, Early Espresso, Blushing Bride, Hello Honey

Accessories – corner rounder punch, gold button, baker’s twine, paper doily
