Friends 24-7

Love this stamp set.  I keep returning to it whenever I get a chance to sit and stamp.  I used the punch trick I featured in this post.  This time I started with a 3 1/2" square and punched each side.  

003 copy  

Stamps:  Friends 24-7

Ink: Basic Brown, Creamy Caramel, Baja Breeze, So saffron

Paper:  Shimmery White, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, and Parisian Breeze designer paper

Extras:  Aqua Painter, Scallop edge punch, Baja Breeze 5/8" Striped Grosgrain ribbon.

Remember that the current In Colors will all be retiring on June 30th.  Make sure you have an ink refill, paper, and ribbon for your favorite colors cause once they are gone they are gone!


A Wheely Friendly card

Okay that is a bad title but I can explain.  Today I pulled out my jumbo wheel Friendly Words.  When I first saw this wheel I know I had to have it and put it on my first order from the catalog.  Somehow it never got inked up, until today.  I am sure that has never happened to you.   The wheel has all kinds of quotes about friendship and really fit my mood today.

008 copy 

This card came together quickly and it reminded me that I need to use my wheels more often. 

Stamps:  Friendly Words jumbo wheel (pg 81)

Ink:  Close to Cocoa ink cartridge

Paper:  Kraft cs, Chocolate Chip cs, and Parisioan Breeze Designer paper

Extras:  Flowers from the Pretties kit and Fire Circle Rhinestone brads & 1" Double Stitched Grosgrain ribbon in Chocolate Chip

Pull out your wheels and make a card to send to a friend! 


5 MInute Friday card

I needed to make a bunch of birthday cards and of course I was in a hurry.  Here is one of the cards.

033 copy

the Last-Chance contest

             *This post will remain at the top until the contest is over*

The list formerly known as the Retirement list but now renamed the Last Chance stamp sets list will be released on June 1st.  It is always hard to see our favorite stamp sets retire so to ease the pain I am having a Last-Chance contest.  Email me your top 12 guesses of what you think will be on the Last Chance list and the person with the most correct guesses will win a stamp set of their choice from the current SU catalog.  Yes, that's right you can choose any set from the current catalog! You need to email me your list no later than May 30th.  You may only enter once.   In case there is a tie the stamp set will go to the person who emailed me first.  Sounds like fun so get guessing and email me.


Quick Reminders

Wow!  We are already over halfway through May!  Remember you have only until the end of May to take advantage of these great specials from SU!

1.  Buy 3 packs of Designer paper and receive one free!   This includes the 12 x 12 textured card stock and the Specialty Designer series paper too.

2.  Become a demonstrator for only $75 with the limited-time, scrapbooking Starter Kit.  I would love to have you join my team of Stamp Ladies!

3.  Buy the new Jumble Alphabet stamp set at 20% off.  THis is what the alphabet looks like.

More Branch Out

When I first saw this set I was not going to order it but I kept on seeing beautiful things being made with it so I decided I had to add it to my collection.  Here is another attempt to make a manly card.  Please notice the background on the Kiwi Kiss.  We will be using this technique in one of the hostess clubs projects this month.

On Mother's Day

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!  I had a great day.  Jim made me breakfast, I went to see Spamalot, spoke with my mom,  had dinner with my Spokane family, did a little stamping, and ended with a phone call from my son aka the boy.  Pretty wonderful day and on top of all that it was a totally beautiful spring day! 

In March my mother in law celebrated her 90th birthday.  For her Mother's Day gift I made her a card file album.   She really liked it!  It made me very happy to hear that cause I really enjoyed making it.  Here are a few photos of the album.

I enjoyed making this so much that I am having a class so you can make one too!  The class is on June 4th at 6:30 pm.  Each participant will received 1/2 of the SImply Scrappin kit Best Ever, the card file, and 8 pages to start filling your album.  We will complete at least 8 pages.  The project comes together quickly.  Call or email me to resgister for the class.  Last day to register is May 23.  Fee:  $25

If you are interested in this class but cannot attend on 6/4 let me know as I am working on scheduling another session.  Thanks!


Cheep Talk and a new Color Combination

I love the stamp set Cheep Talk it is so easy to use and versatile.  I used it with a color combination that I do not remember using before:  Certainly Celery and Perfect Plum.  Perfect Plum was one of those colors that was so "in" when I started with Stampin'UP! I have not used it in a while.  I think the colors looks so fresh together.
