Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase spring themed paper crafting projects projects. You may have arrived from Lisa Kmiec’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

The Petal Promenade designer series paper is so pretty with the fabulous photographic floral images. I paired it with shimmery white cardstock to amp up the wow factor. The pearlized doilie adds another layer of glimmer along with the silver metallic edge ribbon. The Ruffled embossing folder can be fully appreciated on the inside of the greeting card.

Create the rounded corners on the patterned paper by inserting the paper through the backside of the Pretty Label punch.

For different looks, change the sentiments, flip the 2×2 inch square of patterned paper and try out all the gem shapes.

Ink, Stamp and Share Guy Cards

42535194_10156676672352208_1759988314120650752_n

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and me. This month, we are featuring projects created with guys in mind. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Tricia Butt’s blog and her fabulous project.

The Tranquil Textures designer series papers has a few options that look like water. I picked the pattern with a little purple so the fish could be accented with purple.

This card design was in the March Card Buffet line up. The supplies used to create the card were contained in a plastic tub lid and passed around the stamp table. Blender pens were used for coloring the fish. I wrap a piece of scrap paper around the cover at one end to indicate which pen should be used for which color. The pens won’t need to be “brushed out” of color until after the event. This might also save my ink pads from being accidentally dipped with the wrong color:)

ISO Senior Living Sponsors

Hello Super Awesome Stampers!

I visit senior living communities during the first and second weeks of the month. Residents gather in the activity room. I distribute greeting card making kits along with punched shapes and bows already attached to glue dots. We chat while assembling the cards. Sometimes we use the glitter glimmer sheets which is always a hit!

Sessions are more like art therapy. I talk about the fun color names and punches used.  The gorgeous ribbons provide visual and touch sensory experiences. I travel with assorted greetings and an ink pad so we can customize all occasion cards to the sentiment the resident wishes. The butterflies shown in the photo above will be featured in the May sessions. Bunnies are on the April designs.

I visit all care levels: independent, assisted and memory care communities. If I am able to speak to an activity director on the phone and secure a session commitment, I am usually booked for return sessions. Not everyone that is interested in a session is able to book one due to limited budget. Would you like to sponsor a session at a community in your area or where a family member or friend lives? Just let me know where you would like me to visit. I’ll call the activity director to offer a sponsored session. Sponsorship is easy with one simple cash or check donation from you.

I visit communities in the Durand, Eau Claire and Menomonie areas during the first week of the month. I’ll be criss crossing the Madison area and surrounding burbs during the second week of the month. I travel within an hour’s time from these areas and also visit communities along the interstate heading north of Madison on my trip up to Durand.

The residents really appreciate me visiting and I enjoy visiting the residents. The senior living sessions have been a part of my business for over 5 years. So I am experienced with leading the sessions and working with resident abilities or limitations.

Thank you for considering to sponsor a session. Please contact me if you or your company would like to sponsor a session. Have a super awesome day!

The greeting card back is stamped with verses from the demonstrator exclusive stamp set Stamping Your Way to the Top. The card front has several fun details including lemon lime twist sequin eyes. The card inside has several stamped froggy eyes. Love this stamp set!

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and me. This month, we are featuring projects created using Sale-a-bration 2019 products. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from     Tricia Butt’s blog and her fabulous project.

I decided to do a custom fold over revealing the sentiment and sequin. Just fold back once, bone fold along the edge, then fold back to create a flap for the bow. See the piece hanging off the end along the left side? Fold that around the card and secure with a glue dot.

All the supplies used…interchange the flower adhesive backed sequins with the circle sequins. They are an easy embellishment to use! Use the paper piercing tool to position the sequins on your project.
