My Customers

I love nothing more than knowing that my customers love their product.  I received three messages this weekend from happy stampers.


Here is Karen K photo.  She was playing with Brusho and butterflies, watercolor paper, foil paper and gold embossing.  Check out that gorgeous flower in the bottom left corner.  


Debbie P  was also playing with her Brusho and her Beautiful Day stamp set.  Everyone loved the Brusho class and how easy Brusho is to use.



Brenda H is in absolute love with her Large Letter Thinlits and her Softly Falling Folder.  Brenda is way ahead of the game this year.  I think Brenda’s card is stunning. 

Have you been playing with your stamps and ink?  Send me a picture we all would love to see your artwork.

Blossoming Basket Bundle

Sale~A~Bration is exciting and now Stampin’ Up! has made it even more exciting by adding more items you can earn.

The Blossoming Basket bundle is ONE of the new items.  This bundle contains a beautiful stamp set and an amazing Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder.

When I saw the folder I literally squealed out loud.  I love baskets and the weave is perfect for giving cards a very special feel.

To make this card I used the basket in the new bundle and a few holiday thinlit sets.  I love the fact that so many of our Stampin’ Up products coordinate.  For example, the Gate and the Welcome Banner shown here are from Holiday sets.  The flowers are from the Flourishes thinlit set.  So to make this card I used holiday product and you would never know that now would you?

Did you notice the lifelike foliage that lines the front of the basket?  That is a piece of a Boxwood Wreath.  The Boxwood Wreaths are available in the annual catalog.  When I saw this new basket I said to myself yep there is another use for those adorable wreaths.

The cute little bow comes with its own adhesive on the back so it’s so fun and easy to use.  In this photo, you can’t tell but all of the flowers and the Welcome Banner are shimmery.  I used Wink Of Stella to accomplish that look.

I colored in the basket with the Bronze Blend, I LOVE THAT BLEND.  I use brown a lot and this Bronze color is perfect to coordinate with all our SU brown tones.

I made this card because we have new neighbors around the corner.  They are really excited to live in our neighborhood, so I wanted to make sure that our family makes their family feel welcomed.

February Color Fusers Blog Hop

Hi there and welcome to my blog.  This month our team is sharing the fabulous color combination that you see above.  I’ve always loved Real Red and Basic Gray so this months assignment excited me.  I especially loved adding Smokey Slate and Powder Pink to the mix.  I must admit I was curious to see what these four colors would look like together because I’ve never combined them before. I love it and I’m sure I will use these colors together often.

I decided to make a gate fold card for you today.  I also wanted to use the Stampin’ Up! Bundle “Petal Palette”.  Everything I’ve seen made with this bundle is gorgeous.  This bundle is so easy to use and all the elements go together perfectly.

To enhance the Smokey Slate cardstock panels I embossed them using the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder and then I rounded every corner.  To round the corners I used the corner rounder that is built into the envelope punch board.

All of the images were cut out using the “Petal Palette” thinlits.  I used Memento Black Ink to stamp all of the sentiments and the bird.  Lastly, I colored in the little bird with Real Red Ink and an Aquapainter.

To dress up the inside of the card, I cut a 1″ strip of Basic Gray Cardstock and embossed it.   Then I cut another trellis image in white and tucked it behind the embossed strip.

The heart was made with a punch that has been discontinued however the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch has a heart image that you could use.

Here are some close-ups of the front panels for you.  Adding glimmer paper to each flower helped them stand out.

Adding pearls added even more glam.

Wink of Stella on the little heart makes it stand out.

Here is another card made with all the same colors and the same bundle.  I just changed it up slightly to make a Sympathy card.

I hope that you enjoyed your visit here.  Now you can hop on over to Jo Anne Hewins blog to see what she made just for you.

Yesterday’s OPEN HOUSE was wonderful.  I love hosting this event every month because it allows my customers, downline and friends to come over and stamp, visit, learn and most of all relax.  The open house event is a unique time because there is no commitment, everyone can choose what it is they want to do and there is no pressure.  I share all of my stamps, inks, and tools with everyone.  I love watching everyone mingle and making new friends.  I love mentoring them and seeing the results of their creativity.

Yesterday three of the ladies asked if they could take the BRUSHO class while at OPEN HOUSE because they were not available on the 15th.  YES, of course, was my answer.  I trained them in the use of Brusho and then they made the cards below.


Sharrone’s creation is beautiful.  Sharrone added three colors to her butterfly and blended them really well.


Liz’s creation is gorgeous, the blue is intense and I love how she lighted the color up in places.


JoNell’s creation.  JoNell’s butterfly is very rich in style. The green she created is deep and stunning.

Notice how every butterfly is different.  Everyone picked the colors they wanted to use and began to create.  They all did so well.  Brusho is easy to use and the product will last a very long time because a little tiny bit of Brusho goes a long way.

All three ladies told me they loved using Brusho and were amazed at the results.  They ordered their Brusho and can’t wait until it arrives.

Contact me so I can order your Brusho for you.  Sign up for the class on Feb.15th either at 2 p.m or at 6 p.m.  Remember if that date does not work for you just let me know and we will find a day that does.  Invite your friends too.  The more the merrier, right?
