November Stamp A Stack


Here is a picture of the cards I have designed for our Stamp-a-Stack and I didn't use  I just picked the stamp sets I wanted to use and the colors and had fun.  For this stamp-a-stack you can choose to do 1/2 (10 cards) the stack or the full stack (20 cards).  Of course, the price will be $10 or $20.  And you can do as many of each card or all of one card.  Hope you have fun stamping.

Please email me if you have questions.  I tried to keep the cards simple yet pretty.

Happy Stamping,

September Workshop Cards


Yes it is that time again.  Can you believe I have the cards finished before Saturday?!  I really had fun putting this together for us.  I really love the cards.  Ok, so I got my inspiration from Splitcoaststampers AGAIN!  Those ladies make some very lovely cards.  But know that I use them for inspiration and when I don't have the same supplies, stamps or texture plates, I gotta use what I have.  Next month, I am going to try to do it without looking there first.  We shall see.

Ok, here goes, the first card was inspired by Alesha and her card can be found at:  I did not have the same impressions folder to run through the Big Shot so I used a texture plate.  Here is my card:

Accessories: Big Shot, Texturz Plate Perfect Details, Wide, Large & Scallop oval punches and Blender pens
Technique: Dry Embossing

Card #2 was inspired by favre821 and her card can be found at:  I did not have anything that she used.  I want you to see how you can look at someones card and change it for your own.  Here is my card:

Stamps: Vintage Vogue and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Bashful Blue and Whisper White
Classic Ink: So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Bashful Blue gingham ribbon
Technique: Rock-n-Roll

Card #3 was inspired by abbysmom2198, her card can be found at:  Her card really grab my eye!  So, again, I used what I had and liked my result.  Hope you do too!  Here is my card:

July Workshop Cards

July Workshop Projects


Just thought I'd add a teaser before the workshop.  I found this first card on Facebook from Demo-to-Demo.  I loved the way the colors went together and the stamp set.

This card was made using Watercolor Trio stamp set and the cardstock colors are Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise, and Chocolate Chip.  I also use a retired stamp set: Well Scripted.

Here is our second card: Tropical Party adapted from a design by krista824 on Splitcoaststampers, here link is here:  Thank you Krista for the inspiration!!!

I used Whisper White cardstock as the card base and Island Oasis DSP, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White cardstock as layers.  I used Classic Ink in Tangerine Tango and Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise.  I also used the large oval punch and the scallop oval punch.

Nature Silhouettes

Okay, here is the last card we made for todays workshop. I got this one from Speedystamper on splitcoaststampers. Her card can be found at
Stamp Set: Nature Silhouettes
Paper/Cardstock: Handsome Hunter, Soft Suede, Designer Series Paper (DSP) Manchester, and Very Vanilla
Accessories: Twill Tape and Crop-A-Dile to attach the Jumbo Eyelets and Snail Adhesive.

I think this one is very simple and a GREAT card to use for Father's Day!

Kind and Caring Thoughts

Here is another card we made at todays workshop. Inspiration is from Nancy Littrell and her TLC Black Magic Thoughts card can be found at
I used the Kind and Caring Thoughts stamp set from the 2009-2010 catalog.  Cardstock is Whisper White, Lavender Lace and Basic Black.  I used Whisper White craft ink and Soft Subtles Watercolor Wonder Crayons and Basic Black classic ink.  I also used the Scallop Trim Border punch.  I also used the uni-ball Signo Gel pen to create the 'stitching'.  I did use a texture plate on the whisper white card front but it did not scan well. 

This is a very simple yet elegant card.
