As you all know I host an OPEN HOUSE on the first Thursday of each month. At the open house, you are free to create anything you want to CASE my work, finish your projects and or work on anything you need to work on. You can use my tools, inks, and stamps. You also get to make one card called a MAKE AND TAKE for FREE. So come, check this event out and bring a friend. I’m open from noon until 8p.m.
Here is today’s MAKE AND TAKE… This card was made with the NEW release designer series paper from the suite called “SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE”. Come on over and make this card. What I love most about this dsp is that the patterns all seem to work together. I have two favorites though and they are these two. I keep thinking what is it about this dsp that I love so much. Well, first its the coordination of color. It coordinates so well with crumb cake card stock and I happen to LOVE crumb cake card stock. The dsp also shimmers and shines. There is a ton of sheets in the pack and it has images in some of the patterns that you can cut out and use on your cards.
I have at least 8 cards made with this Suite already so come see. Now about the stamp sets in the suite. I love the way you can stamp the flowers in black (as I did on this card) and then stamp the color you want the blooms to be right on top. Super quick and easy and a very pretty look.
This card is soft and sexy. SEXY? really I said that? Yeah, I did. I think maybe soothing is a better word, lol you decide.
The little clip comes from the accessory kit that’s in the suite. I simply tied a bit of lace ribbon onto it. The clip is just the right size. It’s noticed but not overwhelming or bulky.
I need to run now, my time with you and my coffee is over. I need to get ready for work (open house).
Today is a beatiful day. Thanks for visiting and remember, LIVE LOVED my friends ~ Beverlee
I can not even believe that it is April already!!! I do love the weather we are having in April though. Here in CA, we have sunny days in the mid 70’s then it will rain for a day or two off and on, and then back to the sun. This weather makes all the flowers and the lawn in our yard very happy. The aromas are amazing, I just love sitting out back and enjoying God’s creations.
Now for my creation. I saw a post where Debbie Henderson made a cute Easter card using this layout. So I cased her layout and created a card. This card was designed for all my guests who are attending OPEN HOUSE tomorrow. I love OPEN HOUSE, it’s always a fun day of stamping. My customers come and look around, eat snacks, drink coffee / bottled water or tea and create away. They bring projects that they want to catch up on or they come and case projects. The open house day is what I call a WHATEVER DAY. You come and do whatever you want to do.
I hope you can make it and please feel free to bring a friend. We love meeting your friends. I know that JoNell, Liz, Penny, Rhonda, Susan, Rose, Mona and her friend ( WHOOHOO) are coming. So come join us.
I will have everything you need to make this card ready for you tomorrow. So let me know if you are coming.
I love this designer series paper and this bundle together, it’s all just gorgeous. When you put them together you can’t help but make a beautiful card.
I hope to see you tomorrow. I open at noon and I will close at 8.

Good day my friends. Today I want to let you know that if you are attending OPEN HOUSE on Thursday March 1st you will be making this card. The technique you will be learning is called Faux Stainless Steel. I must give credit where credit is do. Linda Heller is the amazing demonstrator who thought up this great technique and shared it with the stamping world. Thank you Linda, I love it.
Look behind my card and you will see the Designer Series Paper in it’s orgininal state. YES, it is already beautiful, but look at how you can completely change the look using this new technique.
I’m so excited about this technique because it’s beyond simple to do and it’s gorgeous. Come on over on Thursday. I open at noon and close at 8p.m. PLEASE CONFIRM YOUR ATTANDANCE SO THAT I CAN MAKE YOUR PACKET.
Here is the inside of the card…..
Have a great day, it’s a good one. Here in CA we can see snow on the mountains in the distance, it’s beautiful! I wish I could go for a ride and then hike up there. But for now I find comfort in just looking at it.
