Thanks Shelli!

When our catalog came out, Jackie said, “Oh mom I want the feather set.”  I laughed her off and thought that is one ugly set.  So fast forward 10 months and here I am ordering the set and using it on not just one card – but 18 of them.  I found this card on Shelli Gardner our Co-Founder of Stampin’ Up! blog.  I was intrigued that first off she used Whisper White and Very Vanilla on a card.  I thought for sure that would be a big no-no.  But in all actuality that little pop is what makes the card stand out.  I mass produce these cards which were easy to do!  I cut, stamped, and splattered 18 cards in less than an hour!

Clean and Simple – Birthday

I just love it when your kid comes up and says, “Oh mom, I need a birthday card right now; and I need to leave in 5 minutes”.  Umm…okay…

Thankfully, Stampin’ Up! has us covered in that area.  I was able to make this card in about 3 minutes.  All it took was a few scraps, some punches, a die, and some bling.  Walah – a perfect card in under 3 minutes!

Patterned Occasions Thanks a Ton Friend

Here is another version of a card we made at our Graham class last week.  Same layout – different view.  I love when we find card layouts that are so versatile.

This card was made with the Patterned Occasions Sale-A-Bration set and Tiny Tiny Wishes from the 2012-2013 Catalog.  Again, I hate the colors did not come out as well as I had hoped.  I really need to invest in a better camera and photography station.

I shared this card with my dear friend Charlotte who gave me some inspiration for some of my political friends.  I’m going to have to play around with MDS and come up with her fantastic idea.  I’ll share it with you soon 🙂

Patterned Occasions Smarty Pants

I wish the Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, and Pool Party paper would have come out a little better in the picture.  I am horrible about ordering Designer Series Paper (DSP) – I mean horrible.  So, I often find myself creating my own DSP with embossing folders or stamps.

We made a few different designs of this card using the Patterned Occasions set out of the Sale-A-Bration set at our Graham class.  I am sending this version off to Operation Write Home.  Ken bought some index cards and wrote several notes on them for me to give the girls when they need a pick me up or did some special.  I thought what a great card for our Military to send home to a child or adult when they did something special.

Tweet Leaves Fall is Here

It looks as though the 80 days of perfect weather has left Western Washington and fall has arrived.  In honor of the changing color, school starting, and well the rain we made this lovely fall card at our Lakewood get together a few days ago.

Tip #1 – Start coloring the image with the lightest colored markers first.

Tip #2 – after you completely color the image in “huff” on your colored image before stamping it onto your paper.  Be sure to press firmly and hold the stamp in place a few extra seconds.

Tip #3 – Lightly sponge over the woodgrain texture to create dimension.
