I spent 5 hours in my stamp room and had one bad project and one great one. This is the great one! Again, looks much better in person, I thought it would look grab because of the colors, but I have a feeling my light box needs adjusting.  I just love this card!! The inside is a bit different, I usually don’t do much on the inside, but decided to branch out a bit!

A Request Being Filled

The fundraiser went well last night!  Thanks to the gals who came, stamped and donated!!!  It’s a great cause and my downline, Karen, was so appreciative!!!

Ok, on to the card. At the fundraiser last night, one of my favorite customers (well, all my customers are my favorite 🙂 suggested we do a masculine card. It took me all night, but I came up with this one. Especially now since Totally Tool will be retiring 😦  I hope they have some new great masculine sets in the new catty!!

This one was a little tricky. I actually used silver metallic ink for the silver parts of the tools using an old blender pen. Can’t use it again after using the silver metallic ink on it. But it came out great.  Look for it in an upcoming class in May!

Stocking up on birthday cards. Never seem to have enough of them!  These are all made with the retiring stamp set Party This Way. The paper is already retired, Celebrations (miss that paper) DSP from last year.  I CASED a couple of these from Mary Fish, she did a card similar to this a while back.

Not to worry! They are not retiring colors, just reconfiguring stamp pads & 12 x 12 card stock. BUT the textured card stock will no longer be available so get it before it’s gone!


It’s here!  The Stampin’ Up! Retiring Accessories List is now available and check out the amazing savings on many of the retiring products!!!

Trendy Trees Last Hurrah

Trendy Trees is one of my all time favorite stamp sets.  But alas, it’s on the retirement list. This set is not going in my yard sale pile, that’s for sure!

This is a very simple card to do and so pretty. I haven’t used Bashful Blue in a long time and it goes great with Marina Mist.

I made a card last year similar to this.  I can’t find it anywhere in my computer. I’ll stick this one up on Pinterst so I’ll never have to search for it again!  It’s made with the retired stamp, On The Green. Enjoy!

Cranking Out the Cards

I spent most of my spare time over the weekend cranking out cards! My mother’s friend request 10 cards from me and I’m working on a new consignment arrangement with a local bakery to sell cards so I had to load up on birthday cards. I’m really excited about the consignment deal, let’s hope we can work it out!

I cranked out a lot of old card styles – that’s easy, no designing involved! – but this was a new one so I thought I would post it. Making cards to sell also gives me an excuse keep retired stamp sets that I love!
