New video on my Youtube Channel

My business has been taking me in new directions the past few months. I hope you are enjoying the ride with me! One direction is back to creating videos for my Youtube channel. I just posted a new video this morning. Take a look at how to create this Jar of Flowers hand stamped greeting card!

Also, I just closed the host code that was flashed on the screen at the end of the video. Please use host code RE3H2VUJ if you are placing an online order instead. Current host codes are found on the right side of my blog in case advertised codes don’t work. Codes are open for a few weeks so that is why codes advertised in videos or posts may not work. Please click on the Contact button if you have questions about ordering.

Also, Stampin’ Up! has 2 promotions going on right now that are super deals! Shop or host an online party with $250 in sales and receive $25 extra host rewards to spend. New demonstrators receive an extra select bundle in their welcome kit. Full details for both promotions can be found by clicking here.

Thanks for stopping by!

My demonstrator friends from across the globe are looking forward to sharing ideas using brand new stamp sets from the brand new 2020-2021 annual catalog with you! We will all gather around our computers and enjoy a full day of Facebook Live video demonstrations. Interact with the demonstrators while they are stamping or follow along on replay. Each demonstrator will feature a different stamp set so there is sure to be one set on your shopping list:)

You are a customer of mine if you have placed a product order through my online store and/or purchased through my monthly Kits in the Mail program. Please click the Contact button or Facebook PM me and ask to be added to the group if you are a customer of mine. Sorry, demonstrators that are not presenting are not allowed in the group.

Ink, Stamp and Share Blog Anything Goes


Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fabulous Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. Our theme this month is Anything Goes. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Libby Fen’s blog and her fabulous project.

My vision was to set the focal point against a kitchen back splash created using smoky slate squares. The mason jar is sitting on a paper, wool applique mat. Quick and simple.

Jar of Flowers A Fast Favorite!

The Jar of Flowers stamp set has a coordinating Jar Punch! It’s was the first entry on my shopping list. Where is it on your shopping list? It’s sold as a bundle for 10% off individual prices. Very nice!

This is the first design I shared during a Facebook Live video yesterday. Here is the link to watch the video. I am not sure if you don’t have FB if you can watch the video. If someone can test that out and click the Contact button to let know, that would be great! I’ll share more FB Live videos on my blog if I know everyone can see them:)

Since I used the Early Espresso ink pad for the stamps, I used our Watercolor Pencils and Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 to color the flowers. Not sure I will color the flowers in future cards. I might leave them uncolored so the recipient has a little something to do.

The rest of the supplies are shown below. The new Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder adds a linen look to the Early Espresso card stock base. The ribbon is from the Flowers for Every Season combo pack. In Good Taste is the designer series paper package shown behind the So Saffron mat. Last, I used our Shimmery White cardstock to stamp the jar and flower images. I was going for the mason jar chalk look and the Shimmery White adds the right amount of fabulousness to achieve this look.
