My Stampin' Up! Classes

No one measures up to you

Sweet Laughter stamps, found in the 2015 Occasions Catalog, have great graphics and sayings, like the ones above.
There's are Happy Mother's Day and the definition of mother stamps, among others, but I wanted to keep this card "open" so I could send it to anybody - friends, family, etc. This quick and easy card was a design from my latest 20-card class. One ink pad (Early Espresso), one designer paper (Park Lane), one punch (2-1/2" circle), one stamp set and "BAM," you're done. Have a wonderful day!

Love is Kindness

I adore Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky colors together. And this single stamp called Love is Kindness is pretty great too. 
I started by embossing the front of card with a folder that is retired (and I sold mine to my mother-in-law after this class!). Using a 2" wide piece of Whisper White, I punched the top with the Ornate Tag Topper punch (in the 2015 Occasions Catalog), and stamped the image in Jet Black StazOn. I used markers for the flowers - Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, and Soft Sky, then adhered a vintage button with mini glue dots.

You made my day

Bright colors make me happy! So does free stuff. This designer paper, ribbon and stamp are each available to you for free with a $50 order thru March 31 for our Sale-a-Bration Event.
I started with a Whisper White card, and added a 3" x 4" piece of Best Year Ever dsp (item 138633)with a knot of Calypso Coral ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (item 138634). I added a 1/2" x 4" strip of Coastal Cabana on the left.
The sentiment is from the Best Day Ever stamp set, which comes in wood, clear or photopolymer. I stamped it in Coastal Cabana, punched it out using the 1-3/4" circle punch, and added rhinestones.

Our friendship is a very happy thing

I just think this fat little bird is so cute. You can choose A Happy Thing stamp set during our Sale-a-Bration Event for FREE when you place a $50 order.
I started with a Blushing Bride card, adding a 2" x 4" piece of Flowerpot designer series paper on the left. The bird was stamped in Jet Black StazOn, and colored with an aquapainter and ink pads Soft Sky and Crushed Curry, and a Crumb Cake marker for the branch.

Buy your own present!

If you have teen-agers, like I do, they often just ask for money for birthdays and Christmas gifts. So this stamp set - B.Y.O.P. - may help you with your cards!

For this card, I added a little texture, a pattern and some ribbon with the simple banners. This was a design from my 20-card class a couple of days ago.

Hey, Valentine!

Here's another project from the fund-raiser the other night. This image comes from the Hey, Valentine! stamp set in the 2015 Occasions Catalog.

I had bunches of small paper bags that are fun and easy to fill with goodies. After stamping the bird image on Whisper White card stock, I cut it out, colored it with markers, folded it over the top of the bag and stapled it in place.
I don't make valentines with my kids' classes anymore (they're too old for that), so it's nice to use cute stamps like the one above for goodies for people I come across in my daily travels errands.

Worm Wishes to you

There are so many terrific stamp sets and other products in the 2015 Occasions Catalog, it might be easy to miss the hostess set in the back on page 51 called Time to Celebrate.

I put together this quick valentine for a fund-raiser for a middle school band student last night. It's a 3" x 3" card with a couple inches of washi tape and the worm image stamped in Basic Black ink. Markers were used to color the flower.

Painted Petals for amazing you


 Make quick and easy flowers with these two stamps in the Painted Petals stamp set.

I usually start designing a card with the choice of designer paper I make. Here, I used Painted Blooms dsp. It's gorgeous enough to frame by itself! I pulled the Pacific Point blue ink and Wild Wasabi green ink from the paper for the flowers. I love the sentiment (who wouldn't love to get a card saying this?) and simply layered it on a punched Blackberry Bliss scallop circle.
I'm hosting a fund-raiser this Friday from 7-9 p.m. at my studio. It'll be set up like a stamp-a-stack - you may pick and choose which cards and how many of each you make on a first-come, first-served basis. Refreshments and envelopes will be provided, but you'll need to bring adhesive! I'm asking for a $10 or $20 donation for Parker, a middle school band student, to get to Disneyland. No need to rsvp. Just show up! I hope to see you soon.
