Hello friends, It’s been a while since we have met. I know everyone is busy because of the holidays and so was I but now I’m back and ready to roll. I hope your Thanksgiving holiday was spectacular. Ours was. Dad is all better ( he had been in the hospital). But now things are getting back to our normal and everything is getting easier around here. I definitely have a lot to be thankful for.
Another blessing is my Super Stamper Group #2. These ladies are very special to me. This group starts their second round of Super Stampers classes tomorrow. I thought this card would be a wonderful project number 3 for them. This card is all about embossing. There is both gold and copper embossing on this beauty. The combination is absolutely gorgeous. Music notes are always striking so it was fitting that the cards focal point is backed with them. This elegant card is packed with texture, and natural color tones. Because of the natural tone, this card is masculine in nature. Masculine cards are hard to come up with, so store this one in your bag of tricks.
Layering the Vintage leafs into a cut out frame really attracts me. I love how a cut out window helps the leaves look stacked and arranged with dimension.
This card could be given for any occasion, but in this case I’m saying congratulations. I think that the colors and glow are perfect for the holidays too. This card is very versatile and that is a very good thing.
I thank you for visiting again. I hope you enjoyed yourself while you were here, come back soon. Remember OPEN HOUSE is the first Thursday of each month. Come create, I’m open from noon until 8pm
Have a blessed day my friends, thank you for popping in.

Good evening my friends. I want to share with you a card that I’m excited to send to my friend Erin. Erin recently went to Waco Texas. She went to Texas to visit the Magnolia Market and Silos. While there Erin thought of me. I can’t believe it. Erin brought me a cupcake from the famous Silo bakery. I’m here to tell you that the cupcake was amazing!!! It was lemon and lavender, crazy delicious.
I think Erin will love this card. Erin loves, lace, ruffles and boots so I know this card will make her smile just like the cupcake made me smile.
Y’all know who Chip and Joanna Gaines are right? They are the owners of Magnolia Farms and Silo’s. They are the creators of Fixer Upper my all time favorite DIY television show. They have a huge shop (in the silo’s) a bakery, a bed and breakfast and they buy and fix up homes for their clients. They transform homes that are in great need of restoration and turn them into their clients dream homes. Joanna is a designer and interior decorator among other things. And her husband is a real estate agent and a licensed contractor. They both have written books but most of all they are Christian. I love their show, I even watch the reruns and I enjoy them every time. This couple is an inspiration to many, they are bringing Waco back to life one home at a time. The new season of Fixer Upper starts two days after Thanksgiving, but it’s their last season….. that makes me sad.
So anyway I gave you all of that information just incase you were wondering why cowgirl boots were the focal point on this card. Joanna wears them, and Erin and I love all the other elements, so together it’s perfect.

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.

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~

Yesterday was JoNell’s birthday. Today she attended my Christmas card making class so I made her this card. I cased this card from Pinterest, isn’t it adorable? While the idea is the same my card is different because it is made with Stampin’ Up! product.
We celebrated JoNell’s birthday with lemonaid filled strawberry cupcakes and card making. After we finished our cupcakes I realised that I didn’t take a picture. Ugh! I hate it when that happens. All in all It was a fun afternoon. Happy Birthday JoNell! It was great stamping with you.

Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Pad
Happy Monday friends!
At my August 24th class we will be making four cards. Last week I showed you card #1. Today I want to show you the second card that you will make. The other two cards will be a surprise. It’s always so much fun to see the reactions I get when you come to class and see your projects for the first time.
I’m excited about this class because there are a few things that are different about it. First, you will make four cards (usually we make three). Second, all of the cards are simple and easy to make. Third, you can attend the class at the time you pick.
Currently I have ladies scheduled at noon, another guest at 5:15, and one gal’s time is to be determined. What time fits your schedule? I want you to know that I’m here for you. I’m here to meet your needs. All you have to do is contact me so we can schedule your time.
The card I’m showing you today is made using Whisper White card stock and Archival Basic Black Ink. There is no coloring, no fussy cutting, or any time consuming techniques on this one. This card is basic yet elegant. The subtle details of this card come from the variety of angles. I think this lay out is one you will reproduce often.
My customers are always pleasantly surprised when they see the cards that I post in person. Often they say, “ooooh this is so much prettier than the picture”. (Sigh) I wish I was a better photographer! Any suggestions?
To sign up all you need to do is send me a quick message or email and you’re in. The cost of class is a minimum $20.00 order that day.
IF YOU BRING A NEW FRIEND TO CLASS, YOU BOTH WILL GET $5.00 OFF OF YOUR ORDERS TOTAL.
Thanks for visiting, have a great evening.
