Quick n Simple featuring Stampin' Up!'s Friendly Gnomes stamp set

 Hello again friends. Yes, another long hiatus due to lack of time. Being a full time RN Infection Preventionist in a nursing home takes up a LOT of time for sure. But, I still make time to get crafty...I just have to sometimes prioritize where I share that craftiness and since Facebook is where most of my peeps hang out, that is where I prioritize my content. I hope that makes sense. So, if you follow me here and notice I fall off the grid, know that I want to be here but time can only be stretched so much but you can always find me on Facebook!

So, today I have a fun, quick n simple card to share with you featuring the Stampin' Up! stamp set, Friendly Gnomes. This card just screams Spring. I think winter has us all longing for the longer, warmer days of Spring. The Brushed Brass Butterflies really brought home the Spring feel of this card. So how about you? Are you ready and waiting for Spring?

I'm just Ape over the Hey Love Stamp Set - Aren't You?

Hello and Happy Snowy and blustery Thursday! Mother Nature seems to have unleashed her snowy furry upon us; but I have a really cute card to share with you using the adorable Hey Love stamp set from the new 2019 Occasions Catalog.
Is he not the cutest? I stamped my cute little Ape onto a scrap Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him in with my Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blend markers and for the heart, I used the dark Real Red Stampin' Blend marker and punched him out using the 2" Circle Punch and attached it to a piece of Night of Navy that was punched out using the Starburst punch. The card base is Balmy Blue cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4". I added a panel of Smoky Slate cute 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" and adhered that to the card base. I then cut a scrap of Real Red cardstock using the Stitched Rectangles and added that to the card front with adhesive. I then added the Ape with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink and punched it out using the 1" circle punch and added it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I just love this stamp set. It's fun and perfect if you have school age children or grandchildren that need to have Valentines to share with their classmates. The images in this set will just melt your heart and the heart of any of their recipients. 

Happy Stamping,

Geared Up Garage - Perfect for The Beginner Stamper, The Casual Stamper and the Avid Stamper

Hello and Happy Sale-a-bration! I'm baaaaaaack! I took some much needed time to focus on family and the holiday's, hence my missing in action for most of December, but now I am back to business as usual and I am so excited for Sale-a-bration and the new Occasions catalog. I am SO in love with these releases from Stampin' Up! I can't even put it into words. There is literally something that will appeal to everyone. If you don't have a catalog and you aren't currently working with another demonstrator, I would love to get a catalog into your hands, so please feel free to message me and let me know if you would like one. Trust me, you want one!

As you may recall, in November I attended OnStage Live, which is the Stampin' Up! convention in Orlando, Florida (it was UH-MAZING!) and one of the things we talked a great deal about was the 3 different stampers. The beginner stamper, who is just getting introduced to the fun of creating, but isn't ready to "jump head first" into investing a lot into their new found hobby. They aren't even 100% sure it's something they will do long term (little do they know how addicting it is ;) ). Then there is the casual stamper, they have fallen to the stamping bug, but don't think they have a lot of time to devote to it, but enjoy it enough that they will buy a few things that they know they can use over and over and then there is the rest of us, the avid stamper. We want it ALL, we love to stamp and make pretty things and we want layers and die cuts and embellishments oh my! It gets us all giddy just thinking about it. At OnStage, we were challenged to create cards that would appeal to all 3 stampers and so, I decided to take that challenge and this is what I came up with using this adorable Geared Up Garage bundle.
The first two cards are basic note cards and envelopes. They require no layers and are simple but cute. The first card would be for the beginner stamper. This card requires minimal investment of a package of note cards and envelopes, a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and the Geared Up Garage stamp set. The second card would be for the casual stamper as it is still a minimal investment with the addition of the Watercolor pencils to add color to the card. Then of course the third card is for our avid stamper, as it uses the Geared Up Garage bundle, the designer series paper, the Stitched Rectangle die set and Stampin' Blends markers.

I hope you enjoyed today's cards and you see that stamping can be as simple as stamps ink and paper or as stepped up as you like. Have a great night and Happy Stamping,

Color Your Seasons Fall Falling Leaves

Hello and Happy Thursday! Well we have another week winding down and today I have a fun card to share with you using the awesome, but limited edition, Color Your Seasons bundle. This card has a fun Fall twist, using Stampin' Blends to color the leaves.
I began with a standard card base of Crumb Cake, measuring 8.5" x 5.5" scored and folded at 4.25".  My Stampin' Blend colors are, the light and dark Daffodil Delight and light and dark Cherry Cobbler after I stamped my image onto a Whisper White panel of 5" x 3.75" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then layered it onto a Merry Merlot panel measuring 5.1/8" x 3.7/8". This card went together rather quickly including the coloring. I added a button from the True Gentleman Button collection along with a double bow made from Linen Thread to finish it off. This truly is a stamp set that will carry you from season to season and has so many possibilities that it really should be on you list of MUST haves!
Happy Stamping,
