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!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Happy Birthday

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Happy Birthday themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Debbie McNeill’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I should start keeping track of the number of times I use the Jar of Flowers stamp set and Jar Punch. I am sure it will be the most used set for me. The new Old World Paper embossing folder will need to be misplaced in my stamp room too so I don’t use it on every card;)

Supplies used…I love my Stampin’ Write Markers for quick, saturated coloring. I also used the Many Mates stamp set for the sentiments.

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click on the next image to zoom to Tracy Held’s blog in Australia and see what fun project she designed.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Thinking of You

I hope you are enjoying our Thinking of You Guys themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Annette McMillan’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to stamp a birthday card since birthdays are a Thinking of You occasion. It’s a quick and easy card with just stamps, paper and inks.

I have pulled all my soon to be retiring stamp sets and placed them in a pile. It’s 24 sets which I will try to showcase on my blog one last time before they are gone for good! I used the sets in photo to create this card along with the Tailored Tags punch and Country Club designer series paper.

The inks used…look close the stamps have not been cleaned yet!

Thank you for hopping around with us as we share paper crafting projects using our fabulous Stampin’ Up! products on black and white designs for guys. You may have arrived from Anastasia Radloff’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

The Garden Shed stamp set provides a large focal point image along with smaller images and a few sentiments. This makes for quick note cards expressing thanks for help around the yard.

The supply list is short too: Garden Shed stamp set, Memento ink pad, Subtle embossing folder used on the card base, Classic Label punch to perfectly punch the sentiment,  acrylic blocks A, B and E to mount the stamps on basic black card base, whisper white for the stamp images and an envelope too.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you liked about my project.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Under My Umbrella

I hope you are enjoying our Thinking of You Girls themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from      Krissi Hannah’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

Under My Umbrella was calling me. I love stamp sets with coordinating punches because punches are so easy to use. I paired them with the Stitched Shapes framelits, pacific point ink, Noble Peacock Rhinestones, Basic Rhinestones Jewels, white Flax ribbon, blushing bride and mint macoron cardstock. The patterned paper is from the Follow Your Art package. I can totally see making bats from the larger umbrella shapes on the right. Can you?
