Today's the Day!!

My new demonstrator kit should come in. I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself! I can't wait to play with all my new toys. Tonight I'm going to my friend's house for her Stampin' Up! party. My upline, Pam, will be the demonstrator. She is very talented and becuase of her, I feel confident to start my own business.

Here is a card I CASED from Pam. She came up with the idea to stamp on the vellum. I just added the flourish background.
Let me know what you think.

Bye for now!

I thought it was a perfect post, since my blog is still a baby. Thank you to all of you for welcoming me into the blogging community and for the great suggestions you have on posting. For those of you just joining today, please read down as I am offering some BLOG CANDY!!! (Still a surprise) I will pick a winner tomorrow.

I want some CANDY!

Yum, Blog Candy. . .that is. . .

I am approaching hit number 50. . .yes I'm still a baby, but everyone has to start small right? To celebrate, I'm going to giveaway something nice. I can't tell you yet, becuase it's a surprise, but I promise it will be nice. So with that in mind. . .

Here's what I'm asking:

Let me know what advice you have for a new blogger and what your favorite SU stamp set is. A winner will be announced Friday. . .the day my new SU Demonstrator kit is scheduled to arrive!

This is a card I watercolored with my ink pads and Aqua Painter. The Aqua Painter is nice because you fill it with water, touch it to your ink pad, and then color. Between colors, just squeeze onto a papertowel to get the remainder of the color out you just finished. Cleanup is a breeze. I talked about the Aqua Painter on Mama Stamper's Blog, as she is offering candy too by responding to the question "What is your favorite SAB set and favorite SU technique.

Bye for now and Good Luck!!!!

Flower Power

I found these cute little flowers at A.C. Moore in the dollar bin. Once I saw them I knew I had to do something with them. . .so TA DA . . .

I had trouble with the focusing but you can still pretty much see it. Sorry it is a little fuzzy.

How To:

1. Paint white with Acrylic paints

2. Trace flower onto back of DP and cut out. ( I did both sides) Adhere with glue.

3. Water color edges with Purely Pomegranate ink.

4. Punch solid card stock with scallop punch and 1 1/4 circle punches and adhere.

5. Stamp flower from "Priceless" set on base with Purely Pomegranate ink.

6. Stamp butterfly from "Priceless" set on white card stock in Purely Pomegranate ink and cut out. Adhere with foam dimensional dot.

7. Add ribbon.

Wouldn't this look cute in a little girl's room?

Valentine's Day Card Project

Over the past couple of weeks we (a group of my coworkers and stamping friends) decided it would be fun to offer a couple of classes in card-making and stamping after school to our kids. Boy were we surprised when we had a class of kids stay after with us to make some cards. We showed them some basics, and they were off and running. . .or stamping, I guess you could really say.

Here are a couple of the cards I made that we used as samples for our class.
