My DD and I went thru all my stamps and made a list of retired stamps for SALE... if you are interested in seeing the list and any purchases, please email me and I will send the lists to you... They are very reasonably priced for quick sale and shipping is Priority only.

I have a revised list as of August 7 - Quite a few sold so it is lots shorter.

3D Flower Box

This cute little 3D Paper Flower Box was on Youtube by Rachel Lewsley from My Stampin' Haven. It was so cute I had to try it and it's not as difficult as it looks. Give it a try! I am sure you will love it.

What a great gift or little remembrance to take to a bed-ridden patient! or just to brighten up a corner! Oops...forgot to put a bow. Off to do that now. Hope you enjoy making your 3D Flower Box.

Until next time!

Flower Patch

Always remember, most of the time if you see a stamp set that has a matching Framelit, chances are there is a bundle price saving you about 15%! Well I didn't even think, senior moment, and I ordered the Flower Patch separate then had to turn around and get the Framelit to match!!!

I used the Good Greetings Hostess set for the sentiment. After receiving my UPS delivery I had to try the new scallop framelit and I love it! And a funny thing, a friend of mine at church Sunday had on a dress and believe it or not the colors in it would have matched the flower and I made the flower last week! Too funny!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. Can be used for a sympathy card, birthday card, mother's day, etc.

Until next time!

Stair Step Card

Sue brought us a stair step card she had made for Christmas and I thought I’d try. Only difference – I cut all the stamps out with my Print N Cut feature using the Silhouette Cameo! Then they are colored using the new Brendabilities pens from Stampin Up! I do plan to add a bit of glitter on the ‘snow’ for accent.

There are lots of different stair step cards. It was such fun I may try some more. Give it a go... I'm sure you'll love it. Oh BTW this was first seen on Pinterest.

Hope you like it.  I think we might do one at our next club meeting. 

Until next time!

Finally I get to post. I have been so busy... to tell the truth I had more time when I was NOT retired! I did get to play some today and have been debating about getting a Brother Scan N Cut... since I enjoy my Silhouette Cameo so much...

I used the new Blendabilities from Stampin' Up to color the flower on top. I have Copics but I must say I love the new pens from SU! They are sooooo easy to use and such great results.

The card is from the new InColors as well as the mat; Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow! It matches perfectly. I accented the card with pearls which added so much.

The Shopping List Magnet I made as a gift. I used the Flower Patch Stamp Set and used the Flower Fair Framelits. What a super combination! Crushed Curry is the background color.

Hope to get more done soon. My work schedule is easing up a bit! Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time!

Totally Stepped Up

On page 174 in the new Stampin Up Catalog is a gorgeous card  - Totally Stepped Up. Cover a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with VersaMark ink, Stamp it like a background stamp, emboss the image and then color it in with the Stampin' Chalk Marker.

It is a great technique - try it! Have a great day!

Until next time!
