Easy Peasy

My daughter came up because she needed to make thank you cards and she took two sets from Sale-a-bration and made these cards - about a dozen in a short time and they look great!

Card Class

Tomorrow is the big day!  I have five birthday cards prepped and two valentine cards ready.  You may make one or many!  Here is a picture of the table with Valentines and card classes to come!

One of the many perks of being a demonstrator is receiving the Stampin Success magazine and being able to attend Onstage events.  Yesterday's card came from the magazine and today's card I got the idea from an event in November.  I just took two of the little note cards and cut them down a bit and put them on a card.

These are some of the cards I have prepared for my class and Open House on Saturday!  You can choose which cards you want to make.  I can also mail packages of these cards to you with instructions!  Thanks to Alison Solven for the idea for the card in the middle and then I came up with the other colour combos,

Birthday Balloons

I am trying to make more simple cards for my Birthday event on Saturday.  Then I decided to try adding a few embellishments for those who might like to try that.  The Balloon Adventure bundle makes these cards really easy!

Hey Chick

I love these cute little chicks!  I received this card from Ronda Wade because I joined her Birthday club.  I had taken a course from her and she had been very helpful!  This is an adorable card!

More Gardening

Now I am experimenting with various colours with the Avant Garden stamp set and a hostess set from the regular catalogue.  They are so pretty!

Hey, Chick

I loved this set in the Sale-a-bration catalogue from the first time I laid eyes on it!  I have seen so many neat cards with these chicks and this is my first attempt.

High Tide

It does not matter what colour you make this lighthouse in- it always looks great !  I have seen a green lighthouse but it looks good on the card.

High Tide

I made a lovely mistake on this card.  I forgot to clean my stamp and when I used Dapper Denim for this card a bit of Cajun Craze stamped with it.  I love the effect.  It looks rustic!  I masked parts of the card with a post it note so I could get one big bird in several spots instead of the whole set of birds!

New Grandaughter

Babies are in my humble opinion God's greatest miracle and gift!    This is my second grandchild.  I just love being Grammy

Baby Arrived

My second grandchild is here.  The little bear in the picture is for babies' brother and the little box made with new thinlits from the new catalogue has booties!  The Star Blast Edgelit dies are going to be very handy!

Paper Share

I have ordered the paper in the picture from the new catalogue!  It looks s great and I am having fun using it!   If you would like a 6" square sample of this paper for $10 - just let me know!

More Layers

I added water and more birds and more twine.  If you stamp again without re-inking it adds more depth to the water!  I am going to try some different colours tomorrow.

High Tide

I absolutely love this stamp set.  I thought I would experiment with Cajun Craze for the lighthouse.  I used Crumb Cake for the sand and Sahara Sand for the birds, and tomorrow I am going to experiment with water.

Coming Soon

You will be able to order this new set on January 4.   I love the Happy Birthday script in this set.  Birthday Blast has a set of matching thinlits as well and you can purchase them as a bundle.   
I used Tip Top Taupe and Peekaboo Peach.  I cut the peach piece 4 1/4" by 4 3/4" and placed the thinlit near the top to run through the Big Shot.  I found if I put a pencil mark at top of the straight flat piece I would stamp the Taupe part just right so that the peach top matched.

I am starting the New Year with a clean craft desk and did some organizing so everything is handy!
