Tippin' on Tuesday - Tips on Stamping with So Many Shells set & Weaving Ribbon

 A couple of years ago, I saw a card where the artist had a woven background behind a heart and I thought it was such a beautiful card.  I made the card back then and decided to re-visit it again and share it with you.  Click Here to see the original card I made.  I thought the Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon would be perfect for weaving.  What do you think?

In this video, I also make some suggestions about stamping using the two step stamping of this set.  As you will see in the video, I even goofed it up after figuring it out!

Fast & Fabulous Friday - Flirty Flowers

Over the weekend, my daughter came home for a visit to attend her best friend from high school Katie's wedding.  I cannot believe how quickly the girls have grown!  Katie is like a second daughter to me and it was fun attending her wedding.  Obviously the best part was getting Cassidy home for a few days which should explain why I missed Tippin' on Tuesday this week.  I had hoped to get something ready before she came but it just didn't happen.  I hope you all understand family first!

In any event, I am back with Fast & Fabulous Friday.  Today's card is a birthday card using the Flirty Flowers stamp set and embossing with the copper embossing powder.  I love that Stampin' Up! has added copper to the metallics that we have available.

Fast and Fabulous Friday Featuring the Pocketful of Sunshine Set for a Graduation Card

As a card maker, we are supposed to send out cards, aren't we?  Last year, I committed to mailing birthday cards to all of my friends and family whose birthday I knew and I made it!  This year?  Not a one, I don't think.  I have been terrible!

I had a couple of friends' daughters graduate from college in May and I needed to get cards out to each of them.  I didn't want a traditional graduation card and decided to do something with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set.  Since I would be sending a check to each of them, I thought this was the perfect stamp set and coordinating dies to work with.  I was in such a hurry to get them out (since I am a few weeks late) that I forgot to take pictures of the cards before I mailed them so I had to screen capture one from my video to show you here.  A big thank you to you as filming this video got me creating the cards and getting them out - who knows how late they would have been otherwise!

Tippin' on Tuesday - A Magical Mermaid with a Marbled Background Technique

One of the first things that I was excited about when going through the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog was the inclusion of several new background stamps.  The one that really caught my eye was this Marbled stamp.  I immediately had several ideas to share with you using the stamp.  Today I am sharing the first one.
