Birthday Cake Soiree

Finally getting back into the groove of things.  This is one of the cards from our stamp-a-stack this month.  Melon mambo and black are such a striking combination together.  Just a couple of small pieces of Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper create a nice balanced backdrop for this card.  Add a little Cake Soiree, melon mambo and black ink, and you have a pretty (and easy) birthday card.

My Stampin' Up! project supply list is below.  Interested in an item (or two, or three)?  Just click the links below and order online.

I'm BACK!


Hi Stampers.  First of all, my apologies for not posting at all in July.  My husband passed away on July 5th and I have to say it's been one of the toughest things I've ever gone through.  I still held all my classes, but my heart was not in it.  However, my faith in Jesus has kept me going.  And God is faithful, and His timing is perfect!  I had earned the Stampin' Up! Alaskan cruise last September, and was able to take the cruise on July 19th.  What a beautiful, healing experience.  My hope is to get back on track with my stamping and posting.  I appreciate your patience with me. Here are a few pics from my trip.  I hope you enjoy them.

Stampin' Up! really knows how to treat everyone well, especially the trip achievers during their trip.  Each night on the cruise we received wonderful pillow gifts which included some personal items and/or stamping items.  This pic is me with my gifts!

Thank you to all my friends, customers and recruits for helping me achieve this trip. It was a once in a lifetime experience.

Springtime Foil Smear

I will be sad to see Sale-A-Bration end on March 31st.  Especially because the Sale-A-Bration Springtime Foil card stock is AMAZING and so pretty.  It is white with silver, gold, or rose gold on each of the patterns.  The cool thing about it, it has a sheen to it so coloring the background is a breeze.  On this card, I simply smeared the ink pad directly onto the cardstock (I used night of navy), and rubbed off (going in one direction for better look),  The color stays in a lighter shade and the gold/silver pops through.  Sort of like emboss resist.


The real life finished product is so much prettier than the picture could ever show.  The bird from the Petal Palette stamp set is embossed in gold, and the outside border is flanked in gold foil.

My Stampin' Up! project supply list is below.  Interested in an item (or two or three)?  Just click the links below and order online.  And if you spend $50 you can get the Springtime Foils FREE.
