About Me

Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in '76. I love meeting new people so hope you to hear from you. Drop me a line. I've been doing crafts of all kinds since I was a kid. I loved making things and especially things that are recycled. I had never stamped until 2001 when I went to a stamp class while on vacation. We went to a local store to buy the stamps we had used. OUCH. When we got home I saw a Stampin Up catalog and realized how much money I could save with their stamps and best part as they are sets that go together which makes for easy card making. After doing some thinking I decided I should sign up as a demo and see what happens. I didn't know the first thing about stamping and still learning. Retired from Sara Lee Intimates in '01. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I teach Stamp Classes in my stamp room and would love to meet you.

August 09 class, Card w/ Level 3 The More the Merrier

There were 3 cards in the August '09 class.

Well who doesn't like cupcakes. The More the Merrier, Level 3, #115322. You could earn this set ...... FREE. This set offers several choices for several seasons. If you like to color, this set is for you. I stamped with black craft pad and clear embossing powder.

Colors are Pretty in Pink and Close to Cocoa. Other colors, Gable Green and Barely Banana. The white on the front of this card uses the back side of the texture place used on the Razzleberry card with the big flower.

Ok, I think I'm loving the texture plates.

Now check out the embossing folder on inside of the card. Who doesn't like to run their fingers across something embossed with embossing powder, texture plate or embossing folder.

The pink bows are attached with glue dots and the ribbon wraps around the front of the white piece. The close to cocoa at the bottom is a faux front. It's just a strip of cardstock glued to the front of a white card and the white piece on top.

There's that border punch again, just plain scallop. Have you noticed that are markings on the punch to line up your paper. I like to start punching in the center of the card and work to right and left so that my ends come out more evenly. Ok, so I didn't watch my marks so well on this one. I used corner ticket punch for the strip with cupcakes.

Punches: pages 186-187 Think about how many times you will use these.
Scallop Border Punch, #112091, $15.95
Ticket Corner Punch , #107214, $6.95

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog and it's still a learning experience even in 2017.

If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month once I get back on schedule.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
