I haven't posted for a few days. I was busy getting ready for the Holiday Stamp-a-Stack at my house yesterday...Wow - I had such a good time. I met new friends, had fun with old friends, and enjoyed myself emensly. I've posted a few of the 5 cards we did yesterday but I will be posting more in the next day or so. Its such a busy time of year for crafters. I have one more event then I'm going to take it easy until January, where I will have lots of Sale-a-bration events planned. Stay tuned for announcements.

Love the Shimmer Paint!

Hi All, I really like the simplicity of this card - however, it wasn't that simple ;-) Not so much hard, just a little time consuming, and YES, those of you who check my blog, this IS one of the Stamp-a-stack cards we will be making on Dec 5th.

You can't tell how 'shimmery' it is in the photo but trust me, it is. I used the new Stampin' UP! Frost Shimmer paint mixed in alcohol (and yes, that's 'rubbing alcohol' ;-), spritzed onto the green card stock then used the heat tool to dry it. Then I ran it through the BigShot using a texture plate. Next I used versamark for the pine trees and white embossing powder. Make sure to press down hard since you are stamping on a textured/dry embossed cardstock.

To make the ornament punch out I stamped the image on white cardstock, then patted my versamark pad over the image, applied Irridescent ice embossing powder and set it with the heat tool.  After it cooled off I used the ornament punch to punch it out. LOVE IT. It's much cuter in person ;-)

Materials Used:
Stamp Sets: Patterned Pines, Holiday Best (both are hostess sets -sorry)
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Glorious Green
Accessories used: Ticket Corner punch, Big Shot, Texture Plate, Frost Shimmer Paint, Heat tool, Versamark, White embossing powder, Ornament punch, Irridescent Ice embossing powder, 1" Real Red stiched grosgrain ribbon

Dasher Holiday Card

Hi Everyone. Ok, I have cased a card a time or two, however, never this bad - ha. I generally change it up quite a bit. Well, this one is from a Stampin' UP! Wow DVD that is available to demonstrators. I think the Demonstrator's name on the video is Mary Ellis (I will double check when I get my DVD out again). The technique I was learning was how to make the sun and the snow mound for the reindeer to stand on.

To make the sun, simply punch out a 1 3/8" circle in a post-it note. Place the post-it note with the circle punched out of it on your card. Use a dauber and apply More Mustard ink in circular motions around the inside of the circle making sure to make the ink a little darker on the bottom for shading.

To make the snow mound for the reindeer to stand on simply tear a regular piece of paper and place it at the hooves of the reindeer. (you will need to 'mask' the sun, so using the circle that was punched out of the post-it note earlier place that circle over the sun to cover it. You can use a little dotto to help hold the circle in place.)  Next, using a sponge (not a dauber) dab the sponge in Bashful Blue ink and in circular motion go over the entire sky area clear down to the torn paper that will be making the mound. As you get lower to the ground (paper mound) make the ink a little darker) When you pull the paper away you will have a white mound. I then took my two-way glue and traced the outline top of the mound then sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds. This is really EASY. Just practice a couple of times. And for those of you attending my Holiday Stamp-a-Stack on Dec 5th, this is not one of the cards we'll be making. I wasn't sure it was what you all would want to make several of. If you want me to show you how to do it on the 5th I would be more than happy to.
Happy Stamping!!!

Ornament Punch.
Modern Label Punch
Word Window Punch

Just saying HOWDY and introducing my new granddaughter

Wow I haven't been to my blog in DAYS...I've been busy with crafting events. Last Friday night I had a techniques class. This coming Saturday I'm in a craft show so I've been quite busy trying to prepare for that. I'll take pics while I'm there and post them.
But the best news is my new granddaughter, Gabriella, she's a doll. She was born in Colorado on Nov 6th. She joins two grandsons that I have, Timothy & Johnny. My daughter Tiffany is pregnant with her second child. Soon I will be a grandma of 4. They add up quick ;-)

Its true what they say, grandkids get away with stuff that their parents never did - ha. My two grandsons, Timothy is 3 and Johnny is 18mos and they definitely get to do things that I would never have let their moms ;-)

I will need to start her scrapbook soon.

Supposed to be getting ready for Techniques class

Hi Stampers, well, I am supposed to be getting ready for a Techniques class I'm having on Friday. I got side-tracked! I made some way cute Fancy Favor boxes - crud - I should have taken a picture of them. I will tomorrow. I put up all my camera stuff. But in addition to playing with some fun new Big Shot dies I was in the mood to make a couple of cards. I made one "Sharing in Your Sorrow" and one "Thanksgiving" card. I am going to be in a craft show in my town on Nov 14th so I'm sure these two cards will end up at the craft show.

Also, I know we are taught "oh it's ok to leave the inside of the cards blank. That gives people a place to write" well, I'm finding that isn't necessarily true. I have a few things in a shop in Illinois and the owner was getting feedback that I needed to put something on the inside of the card as well as the outside. So, I spent a great deal of time pre-cutting a bunch of Whisper White and Very Vanilla cardstock down to fit the inside of a bunch of cards I made. You know, it DOES look MUCH better and gives a much better appearance. Thanks Barbara and Jo - you two ROCK.

I did decorate the inside of this card but the picture didn't turn out so great so I didn't post it.  Surprisingly I used several stamp sets on this card. Harvest Home, Autumn Harvest, Autumn Splendor, and Falling Leaves. I stamped the images in black and then used the Pastels to color.

Iridescent Ice Card

Fun...that's what this card is. For those of you who HATE the mess of glitter this is the technique for you. Using Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder you get a great 'bling' effect. This is one of the techniques I will be teaching at my Techniques class on Nov 6th.

Supplies I used for this card are:
Paper: Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White, Glossy White
Ink: Regal Rose, Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Stazon Black,
Stamp Set(s): A Beautiful Thing, Priceless, Sincere Salutations
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig; Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder; Heat Tool, Eyelet Border Punch; Scallop Oval Punch; Wide Oval Punch; Dimensionals;
Techniques Used: 2 Step Stamping; Layering; Embossing

I created the card in both Portait and Landscape directions. I love this look. Plus, you get the glitter effect without the glitter residue!!!!

I'm finally in the mood to start playing with Christmas Cards

Hi Stampers...here's a really easy Christmas card but it's wayyyy cute and really fun to make. For the squares I used the Sparkly and Bright set and the Holiday Trinkets (which is on the dormant list so you can still get it!) but you can totally make this card w/o the Holiday Trinkets.

Here's the list of supplies I used:

Paper: Ballet Blue, Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black

Ink/Markers: Real Red, Ballet Blue, Chocolate Chip, Green Galore, YoYo Yellow, Tempting Turquoise, Versamark

Stamp Sets: Sparkly and Bright; Serene Snowflakes, Holiday Trinkets (dormant list), Teeny Tiny Messages

Accessories Used: Scallop Square punch, Modern Label Punch, Black Gingham Ribbon, White Embossing Powder, Piercing Tool, Heat tool

It's a little hard to see in the picture but it definitely shows up in person. I used the Serene Snowflakes in Real Red all over the Real Red cardstock before putting all the other pieces down for a watermark look. I used the piercing tool both above and below the row of squares. For those who dont' have this memorized yet, the size square that fits perfectly behind the scalloped square punch is 1-1/2". Stampin' UP! - you all need to make a 1-1/2" square punch!!!

Fall Gift Card Holder

Hi All, This is a really quick and easy gift card holder to make. Not sure how I feel about my color choices, but of course you can always change them for whatever you're making. I think the Christmas ones I make like this I will like much better.

To Create:
1. Cut card stock (I used a textured card stock Old Olive but you don't have to.) 4" x 7-7/8". Score it horizontally at 2-3/8" and 5-1/8th.
2. Create a 2-1/2" x 7-1/4" belly band (mine is More Mustard); score the belly band at 2-1/2" and 5-1/4" (notice the belly band is scored a little larger than your score lines for the actual card base, this is to allow room for the belly band to be able to slide on and off)
3. Stamp Images on belly band (I used versamark and stamped leaves on the More Mustard, they're a little hard to see here)
4. Punch out a scallop border and adhere to belly band (the border should be 7-1/4" long like your belly band and score the same, at 2-1/2" and 5-1/4")
5. Ahere the scallop border to the belly band with snail. Now fold the belly band around the card and secure it closed with Sticky Strip.
6. Use the 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon of your choice and tie around bellly band (I used Elegant Eggplant)
6. Stamp your greeting and punch out with Large Oval Punch; Punch out a Scallop Oval Punch and layer the two together. Adhere to card with Dimensionals.
7. For the one pictured here I cut out 4 leaves from the Autumn Traditions Designer Paper and adhered with dimensionals.

These are WAY EASY to make. Expect to see more of them on my blog w/ better colors ;-)

Box #2 Treat Bags

These are sooooo cute and sooooo EASY to make. All you need is a Big Shot and the #2 Box Die. Here are a couple of them that I made this evening. They would make great party favors, or little treat boxes to give co-workers, I'll be making them and giving away surprises in them at my November 6th Technique's class...Those of you who live near me and follow my blog need to sign up and secure your place. I promise it will be a GREAT night, with really cool techniques, prizes, food, music and just plain old FUN!!! Everything is included, you don't need to bring anything!!! Wait, I got side-tracked, we're supposed to be talking about these cute treat boxes.

To make them simply cut out two of the #2 Box dies using your Big Shot and assemble both of the boxes 'except' for the lid portion, do not fold the lid that shuts the box, leave it standing straight up.

Once you have assembled the two boxes adhere them together back to back with sticky strip. Then use one of your punches for the handle.  For the Cherries box I used the Large Oval Punch, and for the Leaves box I used the Modern Label Punch.

If you want to adhere Designer Paper the dimensions are:  Front & Back Panels 3 1/2" x 1 3/4" and the End panels are 2 1/2" x 1 3/4"

Hopefully tomorrow I will figure out how to use my new camcorder and make my first video tutorial. Stay tuned....

Gift Card Holder

Hi all, hope you had a good week. It's been a few days since I last made a post. I've been busy getting ready for a couple of woekshops I was doing. Here is the gift card holder that we made at the workshop last night. I used the Circle Scissors Plus to cut the Orchid Opulence circle (7.5 is the setting I used). The flower stamps are from the Flower Fancy set and the greeting is from Teeny Tiny Messages (I love that set. I'm so glad that SU made a set that all the greetings fit great inside the Word Window Punch.) I used the Word Window Punch layered on top of the Modern Label Punch, and the 1 1/4" circle punch

DSP -  Cottage Wall cut at 10" x 6". Score 2" from the bottom and fold up (this makes the pockets on the inside.

Inside the gift card holder is a small 3x3 card stamped to match and an envelope then you can put the actual gift card in the right-hand pocket.

Dazzling Diamonds are in the center of the larger cut out flower.

Rich Razzlebery Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon ties to close the holder.

Scrapbook Pages

I created a couple of scrapbook pages today. I have a workshop this coming Friday and in addition to making the 2 projects I have picked out I wanted to show some scrapbooking. The bummer is the colors don't show up correct in any of the pics I took, and I took about 30. Ughhh. SO, I'll tell you the correct colors ;-)  Notice they are very simple scrapbook pages that are quick and easy.

Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive.

DSP: Cottage Wall (I LOVE This paper)

Accessories: Bigshot; Flowers Layer #3 Die, Eyelet Border Punch, Photo Corners Punch, Sticky Cuts Sweet, and Chunky Glitter,

It is much cuter in person ;-)
The Green piece on the page that has SWEET on it is not attached.  I am going to use it to show peole at the workshop how they could add another layer if they wanted. I also die cut letters out to show them they can add a name to the page(s) by stamping or die cuts.

So excited...I have a new toy on its way....

So, I've been out to tons of blogs over the past couple of years and have been quite taken with demonstrators who offer videos on their blogs. So, I'm finally getting into modern technology, mostly because it's fun, plus my new toy is "Purple" to match my new Purple Dell that I wish would hurry up and arrive....so, in the next 1 to 2 weeks I will post my first ever tutorial video....stay tuned....

Most people who  know me know my favorite color is purple, with hot pink being a very close second, so I'm asked why my blog is "Pinkish" in color. Well, as I said, its a close 2nd, plus I purchased the header from a graphic designer on Etsy and these were the colors so I need the rest of my blog to match. Perhaps one day I will get enough time to figure out how to create my own headers and things for my blog, thus I can turn it purple if I want to, currently I am clueless in that department. Thus, those of you who follow my blog will be able to watch over the coming months as I learn new technology - woo hoo. Funny, I'm a project manager for software development projects, you would think I would be more techie than I am. Oh well, I'd rather be crafting than playing Techie ;-)  Have a great day. I'll be posting a card or two later today.

Petal Pizzazz with Shimmer Paint

The shimmer paint isn't showing up as much as I would like to in the picture. The way that I did the shimmer on the flowers is to stamp them, cut them out, then spray them with Stampin' UP!s new FABULOUS Shimmer Paints (the one I used here was Frost). The Shimmer paint should be mixed in a small spray bottle (mine is 6oz) I filled it half full with rubbing alcohol then added aprox 12 drops of the shimmer paint. Shake it really well. Test it on some paper, if you want more shimmer, just add a few more drops of the paint. It keeps in the bottle and is ready to use any time you are. Shop at my Stampin' UP! website to purchase it. For faster drying I used my heating tool and dried the flowers after I sprayed them. Email me if you need any help.

I used the Petal Pizzazz and Sincere Salutations stamp sets. The DSP is retired, but obviously it will work with any of the fantastic Stampin' UP! DSP.

Fall Card with a pinch of Shimmer

Ok, this is my first Fall card of the season. I went to Stampin' UP! Regionals in Cincinatti in Sept and one of the demonstrations was on using the new Shimmer Paints. There were sooooo many cool things they did with the Shimmer Paints - you have just got to get them in every color. I used a little on this card and I love the effect. It looks better in person but I think it's ok in the picture. I did a couple of things. First on the smaller background leaves on the Really Rust paper I inked up the stamp then used a sponge and put a small dab (I mean small dab, a little dab will do ya) on the stamp over the ink. When you stamp it you get a great look. I also used the blender pen and added some Shimmer Paint to the leaf on the picture (the one behind the pumpkin) however it doesn't show up in the picture but in person it looks really good. I used blender pen and did a combination of blender pen for color on the picture and pastels.

Remember - if you are going to use your blender pen on a stamped image make sure to stamp the image in Stazon Ink so it won't smear!

Pastel Erase Technique

I love this new technique I learned. It's called "Pastel Erase". You can do a lot of really cool things with it. On this card I used the Stampin' Pastels. I am going to take pictures and post the instructions on my blog as soon as my camera battery recharges ;-)  Don't ya hate it when your battery dies at just the WRONG time. The supplies I used for this card are:
Cardstock: Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink & Whisper White
Ink: Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, and Elegant Eggplant
Stamp Sets: Playful Petals, Sincere Salutations
Stampin' Pastels: Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac, and Green Galore
Accessories: Crimper (for the leaves); Big Shot (Top Note and Small Dots Texture Plate); Regal Rose Ribbon, Rhinestone Brad, and a crocheted Flurette (retired)

It's hard to see in the picture but I used an eraser and made diagonal lines in the background (after I chalked the entire area).

Sunday, October 4, 2009

I made this card the other day. I was thinking about using it for a workshop but I think it might take too long demo. Everything is Stampin' UP! except for the designer paper. I forgot the name of the company but I loved how the colors matched closely to the SU In-Colors.

The colors are Melon Mambo (LOVE IT), Bermuda Bay (LOVE IT TOO), and Whisper White. THe stamp sets I used were Flight of the Butterflies and Playful Petals.

Thursday, October 1, 2009

I love these colors. The DSP is Jersey Shore, which is retired, unfortunately. The ribbon was in the way of the text in the picture. I didn't realize until I had put everything away. The card says "thanks so much". You can't tell from the picture but this card opens like a matchbook.  This is the first card like that that I've made. I need to tweak it a little but overall I was pleased with my first attempt.

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Well, it's already time to go back to work tomorrow ;(  if work was only crafting and Stampin' UP! I would be in HEAVEN...Here are a couple of cards I made this weekend. Both are simple, sometimes "less is more". The anniversary card I cased from  Jeanne Moss, thanks Jeanne I loved the colors and layout. The Celebrate card was intentionally simple. I am having a "Craft Day" at my house for my neighbors on Saturday Oct 3rd. I wanted to send a handmade invitation and one that wasn't too difficult. I am really looking forward to Saturday. I have several neighbors who have expressed an interest in "Playing".

It's hard to see but the base of this card is black, the ink on the whisper white is Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy, using the Circle Circus stamp set.
Card stock used: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Whisper White.

Greenhouse Garden

Hi All,  I haven't had much time to play in craft central this weekend, however, after I put Punkin-head (my 16 month old grandson) to bed I made a card. It's a little out of my comfort zone. I keep wanting to incorporate circles (using my circle scissors plus) into my cards, but I always think they look funny. Soooo, given that, feel free to tell me if I missed the mark here. I wanted to use the Melon Mambo Polka-dot ribbon however, I adhered everything then realized I hadn't left the right amount of room. Oh, well, I'll keep practicing.  I used the Greenhouse Garden stamp set and Sincere Salutations.

Gift Bag and Contents

Hi All,  Well, I've had a great 4 days. I took last Friday off, and today, Monday...so I had a great 4 day weekend and spent 75% of it in Craft Central (my craft room). After going to Stampin' Up! Regionals on Friday I spent the next three days playing in Craft Central. One of the things I like to do is to cover gift bags. Sometimes I also create matching items for the bags to give as gifts. This particular bag was made with the Sweet Slumber paper (love it, and now it's gone) it was from the last book but I loved the paper so much I decided to go ahead and create a set in it.

The set includes: The covered gift bag, a notecard holder that has 4 notecards and envelopers, post-it note holder, smll notepad, set of 4 small 3x3 cards, and a bookmark. This is a great gift idea. I've sold several of these at craft shows and am hoping to do that again this fall. Take a look and let me know what you think.

How Cool....Regionals in Cincinnatti were Awesome

WOW, that's about all I can say. Being relatively new to Stampin' Up! and having never had the opportunity to a major event, (next year I am going to Convention no matter what...I've informed my husband of that too ;-) I had no idea what to expect let alone that Shelli Gardner (Cofounder and CEO of Stampin' UP!)would be there. What a GREAT surprise AND my friend Becky and I had a table right in the front. It was AWESOME. Of course I have to post some pics and especially the one with me and Shelli, she's soooo down to earth, pleasant, and aproachable. It was really great. I am also going to post some pics showing vaious shots of the convention room, and some of the swaps and demo's that were on display.

I do not know who made this purse card but it is adorable.
Shelli demonstrated how to make this flower, isn't is cute.
There was a ton of cute stuff with the "Build a Bear" series. I haven't had a chance to purchase all of the Build a Bear items but I am definitely going to!!!

This is just a portion of the room. There were tons of people (well, it was tons to me but I know it is small compared to Convention).

This is my friend Becky who went with me. We had a really great time.
Here's a few of the swaps that were hung up.

Regional Card Swap

Ok, so after much playing in craft central I found my craft-mojo. I think this card is pretty cute. Unfortunately it takes a good bit of time to make because of all the two-step stamping. I am making 100 of these cards. I think this pattern would make a good designer paper. My daughter thought it was. I don't think the picture does it justice. I am not sure if you can tell but in addition to the 2-step stamping I also cut out a large flower and a small flower and adhered with dimensionals and put dazzling diamonds in the center.

Where's my creativity gone?????

Hello all. I was sooooo excited for a three day weekend. I was going to craft until I couldn't stand it. I was going to get started on a card that I need to make 100 of for the swap at regionals on the 11th. I haven't figured out what to make yet. I made one card last night, I thought it was a little lame, so I asked my daughter, ummmm yah, she agreed, so needless to say I am back to the drawing board. Hmmm, surely I'll come up with something and SOON...stay tuned, if I do, you know I'll post it. Who knows, maybe I'll post the 'lame' one too - ha.

Swaps for Convention Round Up

Hi everyone. Today I'm going to a 'Convention Roundup' meeting with my upline group. I am sad to say I wasn't able to go to convention this year so I'm excited to hear all about it and see some new ideas. I will be taking lots of pics and posting some of my faves on my blog. Below are the swaps I'm taking. I LOVE the new Cottage Wall DSP. Enjoy....these cards take a little bit of time to create because of all the details with the white gel pen, and I used my Big Shot for a lot!!! I don't know how I ever lived without a Big Shot. If you have been wanting one but was waiting for a sale....stay tuned to my blog. I'll be posting a way that you could earn a Big Shot for up to 50% off!!! Stay Tuned.

Now, to the real reason I started rambling on this blog...my swaps!
