Thinking of the Color Throwdown

I’m starting up my after-school kids’ rubber stamping class tomorrow, so I spent some time last night getting ready for it. Just before bed I grabbed some time to stamp for me, using this week’s Color Throwdown. (I love that they post it early on their Facebook page!) These colors are so rich and gorgeous … Continue reading »

Have you seen Stampin’ Up’s new Letterpress plates? You use them with the Big Shot, and instead of embossing, they add ink to a debossed image! So cool!  Here, watch this video and then I will tell you more about them. (If you are reading this in an email, you will need to go to … Continue reading »

Inset Embossing Folder Technique

Wow! I was so excited to see this super cool technique on Lyssa’s blog! She has a great photo tutorial, but I took a few pictures of my own as I created the card below. It is inspired by Lyssa’s friend Lori’s card, with her great idea of using the leaves from the two-step bird … Continue reading »

Baby Tees

Another great sketch from Stamping 411 this week! I love how clean the lines are! I was inspired by Carmen’s swap cards to use my Baby Tees Jumbo Stampin’ Around Wheel for these. One of the first grade teachers is about to have her first baby any day now. (Actually, he’s due on my birthday!) … Continue reading »

Happy Bird-Day!

When I saw how pretty this week’s Color Throwdown colors were together, I was really excited! They look great together, but how to use them, and only them, on a card… Wow! That was a little tricky! As I was looking through my stamp sets, I came upon Pun Fun — always a good set … Continue reading »

Fall Flowers

When I saw this week’s ColourQ challenge, I knew it had to be flowers. See what I mean? It’s been a while since I’ve played with Awash with Flowers, so I decided to use that set. I based the layout on a swap card by Jan. I really like how these colors look together! Stamps: … Continue reading »

Got Treats?

The Pals Paper Arts challenge this week is a theme challenge — Halloween! I love Halloween! I decided to use the Clean&Simple sketch this week along with the Got Treats stamp set to make a fun Halloween card. Because of the size of the pumpkin image, I had to use the 1 3/4″ circle punch … Continue reading »

Joy at Christmas

If you know me, then you know that I do not make a lot of Christmas cards. However, when I saw Holly’s colors over at The Color Round Up, I knew I had to make one. I put the colors together with this week’s Stamping 411 sketch challenge. Poppy Parade is a bright red with … Continue reading »
