Ever use Embossing Paste? I did with PCC247

Happy Friday! Today’s card was a fun card to make. I’m using some of the new products from the annual catalog. Now I must admit when I first saw the Embossing Paste in the catalog it did nothing for me, but once I watched the Stampin’ Up! video it jumped into the top 5 must haves for me, it’s smooth, easy to use and dries really fast. The video is below… Read More »

The holiday, which is currently observed every year on the… Read More »

I love the beach, blue and watercoloring so this is perfect, especially… Read More »

Old meets New with a Dapper Denim Thank You

Happy Thursday, one more day to go until the weekend. For me it’s the last day of work this week, I’m on vacation tomorrow, just like a lot of other people. They showed the morning traffic on the news today and more cars were outbound than inbound to the city, have a feeling quite a few people are starting their weekend early. Last night I was looking through the new… Read More »

Happy Birthday Jake!

Happy Birthday to my favorite nephew Jake! Today he is finishing up his freshman year at the University of Delaware, guess that’s not a bad birthday present – your last final exam and then done for the summer. He plans on working and even taking a class over the summer, guess it will be busy for him. I’m sure my brother and sister-in-law will be glad to have him home… Read More »

Happy Friday – any special plans for the weekend? I’ll be stamping with my Sunday stampers and running some errands. Today’s card is using the Happy Celebrations stamp set and features a little shadowing of the word ‘Celebrate’, what started as a oh no, turned out to look rather cool, like a shadow.

Almost forgot about this stamp set . . .

This past weekend I was looking through the new Annual Catalog that starts June 1st (one of the many perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator – early access to the catalogs) I saw that the Paisley & Posies Photopolymer Stamp set was part of the catalog. I really enjoyed this stamp set in the fall and had accidently put it away with my Christmas stamps – so out it… Read More »

PCC243 Sketch Challenge

Happy Sunday, last night’s hockey game did not end like I hoped, the Penguins lost, not to worry, it’s a seven game series. On a more positive note, what we thought was a pool liner issue turned out to be a pool cover issue and every time we thought we were draining water off the cover, we drained water out of the pool. Bring on summer, I’ll have a pool!… Read More »

My card features products from… Read More »

Eastern Palace Swap with 24/7 stampers

Recently a few of the 24/7 Stampers (the demonstrator group I am part of) got together and did a shoe box swap, since the group that met was in California and I’m in Pennsylvania, I participated via mail as did Marci Long in Texas. A shoebox swap is when you bring a completely made card and all the parts ready to make the cards is a “shoe box” and you pass… Read More »

Turn your Gold Eastern Vinyl Stickers into Silver, how you say ?

Before I get started, I need to give credit to Janet Wakeland another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for showing us how to do this using Window Sheets. The Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers are really cool and a great addition to a card, or even like the card on the right, created completely with stickers with the exception of the sentiment from Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer stamp set and some Gold Metallic Enamel… Read More »

Kinda Eclectic meets Mint Macaron

Today’s card features a stamp set and In-Color which are among my favorites and both just happen to be retiring. The six stamp set Kinda Eclectic, which comes in both wood or clear mount, was given to demonstrators a few years back at convention, I’ve loved it since the day we received it. There are matching butterfly punches, both of which are also on the retiring list.  Color for the… Read More »
