About Me

Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in Oct 1976. I love meeting new people so hope 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 Feb 2001. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I am out of Stamping Up since Spring 2017 but still have lots of supplies!!!! These days I'm back to quilting and having a great time.

August 09 class: Trendy Trees card

It's a simple card and would make a great man's card. The words came directly from "Trendy Trees", pg. #113258, pg. 112, $17.95. This card looked equally a good with the trees all in the same color.

Alisa changed it up by stamping a tree in Crushed Curry and then again in Old Olive, a bit offset. Very nice. I think you could do the same with residue left on stamp from any ink.

Cardstock: Kraft, Choc. Chip, Whisper White
3 gold brads, An easy way to position these is to take a piece of cardstock, the length of brown. Fold in half for the center brad. Then while folded I just punched a hole thru the doubled cardstock to evenly find the other two spots.
Ink: Dusty Durango around the edge of the white with dauber, trees are Old Olive, Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry.

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.
