About Me

My photo
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.

June 2011 class projects will be a lot of fun.

June 2011 class projects:

Card 2: Eastern Blooms Bedazzled

CARD: vanilla 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, fold over. Also 1 piece 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 for inside the cover, to cover the front of the card, backside

Set: Eastern Blooms for the 3 flowers stamped in Rich Razzleberry; Petal Prints for the open leaves stamped background, any words of your choice

Ink: 2010-2012 In Colors: Pear Pizzaz & ongoing color: Rich Razzleberry

Accessories: 1 3/8" square punch, scallop punch is an option; Dazzling Diamonds; clear packing tape.

Instructions: Punch out your squares or windows of your choice. Cannot be larger than the packing tape is wide. Place a piece of clear packing tape behind the windows, one piece across the back. I cut out the flowers and place them in the windows on the packing tape. Now pour on Dazzling Diamonds and shake off the excess. Using a roller, go over pressing the glitter into the tape, again tap off the excess. I placed the additional piece of vanilla in behind the window to cover the tape. Many did not want to do that so it looked like a window which is also very pretty and see thru. Hope this makes sense.

Card #1: Herb pots

Sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Herb Expressions/R; Happy Together for the vine on the pots; Itty Bitty Backgrounds/R

Card: Cajun Craze layered with Marina Mist ( 5 1/4 x 4")
& W. Shite 2 1/2 x 4 5/8"

Designer Paper, cajun craze or your choice is 1 1/2" x 4 1/4"

Flower Pots: about 1 3/4 x 1". I free hand cut pots. Top rim uses the Window Word Punch.

Ink: Black, Marina Mist, Cajun Craze

Accessories: colored pencils, Large Oval Punch, XL decorative Label punch, daubers, twine or raffia, Window Word Punch

Card #3 Inches in Pink and Purple

Now the inchies are just so much fun and you'll have enough inchies background to go home and make a couple more cards. This card is in Melon Mambo with accents of Concord Crush. This is a fun process.

Sets: Just any sets you wish, words, images, solids and with open spaces, even alpha stamps.

Card: Melon Mambo with Concord Crush 2 1/4" x 3" and a Melon Mambo square 1 1/8 x 1 1/8" whisper white to do your stampin on.

Ink: Concord Crush marker. Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Daffodill Delight, Wild Wasabi, Blushing Bride. Images are all stamped in Concord Crush.
Accessories: Pop Dots, Crimper, Ribbon or yarn, Modern Label Punch

Instructions: Using the stamp pads as stamps, stamp with edges or solid part of stamp pad on a big sheet of paper or even a half sheet will be more than enough. I used all colors listed in Ink. Ten using the strong color, in this case, Concord Crush, I stamped my images on the background colors. No order, just random and in this case in one direction since I was using words. You'll need more images than you think so close is good. Now cut this background paper into 1 inch squares. I prefer using my paper cutter for this, no waste. Then mount your inches in any fashion you choose.

For the greeting, stamp on Whisper White. For the background, punch one more label in Concord Crush, cut in half and separate. Using a marker to edge anything not backed by this additional piece.

Thanks for stopping by.

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.
