Ink and Share Blog Hop Waterfront


Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring masculine themed projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Sandrin’s blog and her fabulous project. My hop design is below and features the Waterfront photopolymer stamp set.


I have been wanting to ink up this stamp set for months and did I ever ink it up! I used all of these ink pads in order of the inking line.


These are the colors I used…


Linen thread and burlap ribbon were discarded as embellishment. They took away from the serene scene.

Thanks for stopping at my blog! Now click the next image to hop to Phoebe’s blog to see what summer themed project she designed.


If you do not already have a demonstrator, all the supplies used in my design can be ordered through my online store here . Please use the host code in the right column of my blog if your order is under $150. If it is over $150, do not use the host code so you can redeem all the host rewards.

Daisy Jar Class

It’s a design day in the stamp room today. I won’t be taking out the garbage until all the supplies are put back in their cases:) Yes, I am down to working with 2 inches of clear desk space and stamps are teetering in stacks.
The designs are for the August Card Buffet and Daisy Jar class.  The Daisy Jar is below. Note that the foliage is fresh cut from the lilacs that had a few flowers opening!
All supplies are included in the Daisy Jar class, except the lilac foliage although we could send you home with a bunch:) The Daisy Jar class is by prepay only since you will go home with a new daisy punch and whatever you don’t use from your package of faceted gems. Cost is $35 and is due to me by August 1st so I can order the supplies.
The Card Buffet is 10 cards with envelopes for $20, you provide your adhesives. You are welcome to attend the buffet and then start on your jar when you are finished with the buffet. RSVP for the buffet is by Wednesday, August 8th, 8pm.
The Daisy Jar class and Card Buffet will be offered on Friday, August 10th, 5:30-8pm and Saturday, August 11th, 1-3:30pm. I have added 30 minutes to the session in case you want to make the jar and do the buffet.
RSVP by clicking Contact above and let me know if you want to attend the Daisy Jar class or Card Buffet or both. Pay for both events at the same time and receive an extra card kit at the buffet.

Hope you can join me for some stamping fun in August!

#sunpraireistrong fundraiser

It has been about 2 weeks since a gas line explosion on Main Street in Sun Prairie changed many lives. Read about it here in my blog post.

I would like to help by donating a portion of online sales to Sunshine Place, which provides a single point of access to social services for Sun Prairie residents to support themselves in time of need.

You can help raise funds for Sunshine Place by placing an online order using host code 7UY9EASY at my online store here. I will donate 25% of online orders placed using host code 7UY9EASY. Orders must be submitted by Monday, July 30th, noon.

Stampin’ Up! is a creative company helping people make connections through paper crafting kits and DIY paper crafting supplies. That stamp and paper aisle in the big box stores? That is what my company does only the products are shipped directly from Utah to your front door. Most of the products are made in Utah as well. My store is online and so is ordering. I also hold in person paper crafting events for all ages. Ask me about that part of my business.

You will receive a hand stamped greeting card in your snail mailbox from me as a thank you for ordering and supporting #sunprairiestrong efforts to provide help and hope.
