Beaded Staple Tutorial

By | Cards, Techniques | No Comments

This is a card that was demonstrated at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference that I went to in January. Using beaded staples as an accent on your card was a new technique for me. The photos were taken by Ginger Abrose (one of my roomies at Leadership and another SU! demo). This technique was demonstrated during one of the general sessions and Ginger took photos of the large screen.

Happy Anniversary

By | Cards | No Comments

Earlier this month a very special couple at our church celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. I made this card for them using the Year after Year stamp set, a retired numbers set, the Rough Edges Mini Alphabet and the Hugs & Wishes set. The base of the card is Whisper White because my grandma always tells me that is hard for her to read messages written on dark card stock. The corners of the main image were clipped off with the Ticket Corner punch.  I sponged over the whole piece of Whisper White card stock to cover up the red…

For the Love of Chocolate!

By | Cards | No Comments

Here are the three cards that we made at my February stamp class last week.  You’ll want to check back tomorrow for the recipe for the Cookie Dough Truffles that I served.  The class was titled “For the Love of Chocolate” after all! The base card for the “from the heart” card is Purely Pomegranate, but we used the Rose Red marker to color in the flowers.  It’s nearly a perfect match!  I also love the different use for the punch-outs from the Word Window punch.  The heart stamp is from the Simply Said stamp set.   The colors on…

Happy Birthday!

By | Cards, Home Decor | One Comment

Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law Dolores Taylor today!  Some of the family showed up for Saturday dinner at her place as a surprise and we had a fabulous time.  Most were smart enough to head home on Saturday night, but as a little bonus surprise our overnight visit turned into a weekend stay.  We got snowed/iced in and just made it home this morning.  The girls had a great time and I had a chance to organize her stamping supplies. Dolores loves lilacs, so I made this little gift ensemble for her using the Blossoms Abound stamp set. This is…
