With Much Sympathy

Good Sunday my friends.

I recently earned the Graveyard Gate Bundle. This bundle is in the Holiday Catalog in the Halloween area.  I have heard my customers say that they think this bundle is beautiful however it’s seasonal so they didn’t see the value.

My brain must be so different from most because when I first saw this gorgeous gate I thought of heaven.

Today while shopping at Costco I ran into a friend.  When we greeted each other she said the nicest thing.  She said to Kenn and I that she was so glad that she ran into us because when she see’s us she always gets happy.   Ahhh what a sweet thing to say.

I noticed our friend looked tired and a bit sad, but she didnt seem to want to share anything so I didn’t inquire at first.  But after talking a while I just had to make sure that she was okay.  Well, as I expected she was sad.  My friends Grandmother went to be with Jesus yesterday.  My goodness Im glad I asked and that she shared loss with us.

When I got home I made this card for her.  I knew this gate would represent the pearly gates when I needed it to and after seeing this card I hope you agree.  I’m hoping this card gives my friend and her family a bit of comfort and peace in the knowledge that grandma is in the Lord’s care.

 

A card can do so much to brighten a day, I can’t wait until this one gets to it’s destination.

Oh What Fun It Is To BLEND

I can not even tell you how much fun I’m having with my new Stampin’ Up! Blends. These markers are amazing, they blend easily just as their name suggests. I can’t wait to show you how to use them.

When the annual catalog was first released the very first bundle I wanted was this one ” Birthday Delivery”.  This bundle is vintage in style, which is right up my alley.  The stamp set not only has a bunch of super cute images in it, it also has a ton of sentiments.  A set that has images as well as sentiments is a great value.  This Bundle also has coordinating Designer Series Paper.  Check it all out on page 69 of the current annual catalog.

With the New Stampin’ Blends I can color my heart out.  Once I show you how to blend with these markers you will be in love too.

The photo above captures the cake in the stamp set.  Isn’t it beautiful?  In order to prevent bleeding or smearing you must first stamp your images using Momento Ink.  After stamping with Momento ink you can freely blend away.

 

Here is the cute fox in the set.  The banner he is holding is a separate stamp as well as the sentiment inside the banner.  This stamp set has 23 Photopolymer stamps in the set. WOW! that is a lot.

I hope you enjoyed learning about the new Stampin’ blends.  I will let you know when you can order the blends, right now they are only available to demonstrators.  As soon as hear that the markers are available I will let you know.

You have a GREAT evening and thanks again for visiting.

Stampin’ Blends

Good morning friends and welcome back to my blog.

Today I’m introducing you to Stampin’ Up’s newest product.  They are called Stampin’ Blends.

My Stampin’ Blends arrived last week, so I started playing with them so that when the blends are released to the public I can teach you how to use them.

On this card I want to point out a few things.  Notice that I used sponge rollers to sponge three colors over the complete card.  I used Soft Suede ink to imply the earth at the bottom of the card.  Next I sponged Daffodil Delight in the center of the card to bring out the sun and lastly I sponged Soft Sky ink at the top of the card to mimic a clear sky.

The other thing that I want to point out is that I embossed the floral image and the sentiment.  I did that because I find that embossing an image before blending color gives me a border which helps me to stay within the lines.  Your marker will touch the embossed lines and stay within them better.

If you like to color you are going to love this additional way of blending color.  Blending color gives your work an additional artist look.

Thank you for visiting~

DIY Triangle Box Video

Well ladies this video is not one of my best however you will know how to make the box after watching it and that is what counts, RIGHT?  When I tried to make the trunk of the Christmas tree I failed horribly.  But I thought you would get a good laugh watching me struggle.  Of course when I made the sample everything worked wonderfully.  What is it about being on camera?  I guess you would call this a blooper.

Enjoy the video anyway, remember it was made with LOVE…Maybe give me a sweet comment so I feel better about it.
