World Card Making Day

Hello Stampers!

Sorry I've been MIA.  I went to Las Vegas and returned a couple of days before the tragedy.  It breaks my heart to see what they've been through.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims.  I ended up getting sick from plane germs so I've been out of commission for a couple of days.

I wanted to let you know about some specials that Stampin' Up! has going on.  First, World Card Making Day is Saturday, October 7.  Are you going to be stamping?  I hope so!  I know that I will be babysitting my grandchildren, but maybe I can get my granddaughter to make a card or two with me.  She loves stamping!  Anyway, here are some amazing deals.  I know I'm stocking up on the Fast Fuse.  It comes with two refills!  There are several stamp sets for 15% off.  This runs from October 1-10.  Just click to shop!

Second, there is a sale on select designer series papers.  Buy three, get one free!  It's time to stock up.  There are some beautiful packages of paper here.  This runs through October 31.  Happy shopping!  I will try to post some cards using these pretty papers very soon.

Inky Fall Leaves

I love fall, don't you?! I saw this tutorial on Pinterest (Jackie Bolhuis has a video) so I decided to try it with the pretty leaves in Colorful Seasons.  It uses a baby wipe and reinkers for a stamp pad.

I started by folding two baby wipes into a rectangle and put them on a clear block F.  I then dropped reinker spots of Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry in a random pattern.  I would use maybe three or four drops of each color within the rectangle.  Then I stamped into the ink with the solid leaf stamp. You can move around a bit to get the colors, but not too much as it will become brown.  My first card has some white on the leaf but I think it's a cool effect.  I stamped a bit more with the second card and it's deeper.  I wish I had more yellow here.  I added some leaves which I cut from the Seasonal Layers Framelits and adhered my piece to an Old Olive panel, stamped a sentiment, and backed it with a tiny strip of Rich Razzleberry.

You can shop for these products at my store 24/7.  Just click the highlighted products above or click on the flower to the right.  I am running a special throughout the month of September.  Purchase $75 in product, and I will send  you a set of the new Black Rhinestone Jewels.  I love them!!

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if I can answer any questions!

Happy Fall

I am loving this new Painted Harvest stamp set!  The sunflowers look amazing and it's easy to do with the two-step stamping method!  It's a versatile set.  I have seen others use this as a Christmas wreath stamped in green.  Check out my Pinterest board to the right (Holiday 2017).  I have pinned several samples.   Also, below you will see one I made for a class card.  We all created our own dsp with the stamp set. It was fun!
