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.

Fifth Avenue Floral rose card, Sept. Class

Just a couple more pictures to show you how different the rose can look with other colors or even a couple of colors. I used to paint but have never done watercolor so this was my first try.

The trick is to go lightly with color as you can add more. You can't take it away.

Here is another rose. This rose and technique is very addictive. Well I can't throw anything a way. Yes I had the polka dot piece of paper left over and thought great place to use it. I like the olive tones, more suited to roses, I think.

This one again is two pieces. Textured white at top and just some garden green cardstock at the bottom. I stamped the rose on the white as well as the green. This rose was with a touch of the new crushed curry and melon mambo.

My roses are growing without any Miracle Grow. Actually I can grow these roses.

P.S. Did I tell you that I stamped the rose onto shimmery paper with versamark and sprinkled on white embossing powder and heat set. Then when you spritz the paper with water and touch the water with ink, it just spreads.

Now if I can figure out how to do a video, I'll show you. Otherwise come to class. I think this will be one of the cards offered as come make a few.

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.
