Swirly Bird Emerald Envy

I am in love with this stamp set!  I know I have said it before, I didn't really think I would like this stamp set when I first saw it in the catalog.  As a demonstrator I could order it early, and so I did.  After playing with it for awhile I quickly fell in love with it.  It has so many usages.  I mean you can make a kite, a bird, a nest, flowers, the list goes on and on!

I used an embossing folder to get the tree limb.

Flower Shop Vellum Card

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy you have taken the time to visit my blog today.  I love making these cards and sharing them with you all!  This is hands down one of my favorite stamp sets!  I LOVE IT!  My last "Class To Go" was Flower Shop.  I used this stamp set for that class.  When I design my cards for my classes, I try several different designs, and then pick my 4 favorite.  I also ask my hubbies opinion, but really he doesn't care lol.  This is one I really liked so I thought I'd share it with you all.

If you don't own this stamp set I would suggest you get it. You will not regret it at all.  The bundled discount goes away for this set in the new catalog.  You can still get the stamp set & punch separately but you will end up paying $5.25 more.  If want to order this or any other items just click the tap at the top of this page and you will be directed to my on-line store.  Always make sure my name appears in the upper right hand corner.

This is a different sentiment from the one in the video.  I re-stamped it to make it centered and added the Tangelo  Twist sponging around the edges.

Love this embossing folder

This is such a beautiful stamp set.

Love the rhinestones and the details on the flowers.

Stampin' Up! Saturday

Hi friends,
I wanted to take a few minutes to jump on today and say a quick hello.  I am super busy working on my next, "Class To Go".  I am in the process of designing the cards.  We will use stamp set, Swirly Bird.  You will not believe the possibilities available in one stamp set!  When I attended On Stage, in SLC in April, I have to be honest and say this set just did not excite that much.  After playing with it for the last few days I am now a believer that this is a must have!  When you are making out your wish list I'd be sure and put this stamp set at the top.  

This is a card I posted a few days ago using the Swirly Bird stamp set.

I am headed back to my craftroom to have some more fun and creating some fun cards to share with you all.  Have a great weekend and check back for details on my next Swirly Bird Class To Go!

Flower Shop Class To Go Ends Soon

Hi Friends,
If you haven't already registered for my current "Class To Go", Flower Shop, you better do it now!  The registration ends May 27, 2016 at midnight.  This class will NEVER be offered again.  I provide all the cardstock, and you will get 4 different card designs! I also provide some if not all of the embellishments, and the link to the private video, you can watch whenever, and however many times you want.

This is a great way to build up your stamp sets, inks, and embellishments.  If you are already a current customer you know what an amazing deal this is.  I love sharing my love for crafting and stamping with you all and love the relationships I am building along the way!

This is a sneak peak at one of the cards you will be making in this class.

Love these color combinations together!

This is one of my favorite stamp sets!

Close up, if you don't have this stamp set each stamp has a different pattern on the stamp.  Look at the images o!n the front of the stamp set and you will see each different pattern.  I think we use all of them in this class

Flower Shop Class to Go

Get this stamp set & punch bundle before this bundle set goes away on June 1st!

Price Reduction On My "Classes To Go" !

Hi everyone,
I have great news to share.  I can't share it all right now but if you are interested in taking my "Classes To Go" I have some great news for you.  I will be able to make my classes very budget friendly as of June 1st!  I know we all live on a budget and can't break the bank on our hobbies.  This will be a great way for you to take my classes, still get the stamp sets, etc.  but if you can't afford every item it takes to make the cards in one particular class, I have great news for you!  Come back to my page on June 1st to get the details.

Swirly Bird Stamp Set & Free Stamp Set!

Hi everyone,

I am working on my next class to go and it will be using the Swirly Bird stamp set and dies.  I hope to have it posted later today or first thing tomorrow morning.  I don't have all the cards designed yet so I don't have the price or what else will be included.

This is a great way for you to order your "must have" stamps set.  I will be focusing on the new stamp sets, and In Colors for the fist few classes.  This will help you all get those "must have" items.

I provide all the cardstock and any special embossing folders, sentiments, etc.  They will already be done for you and included in your kit.  The Swirly Bird stamp set does not have one sentiment included so I will provide all those, already stamped and ready to go for you.

I will post more information as soon as I have it all ready to go.  You will be able to purchase the class as soon as I have it posted, and I will be able to order the class materials on June 1st.

Sweet Sugarplum Birthday Card

Hi Friends,
Today is a very special young ladies birthday.  Her name is Tiffany and she is my youngest son's girlfriend.  They have been dating for over 5 years!  She is really like a daughter to me.   Her favorite color is purple so of course I had to maker her card with those colors. (she has good taste in colors, mine is purple as well)

I used watercolor paper to do the background.  I love using this technique.  You never get the same exact background twice, each time is something different.  

You can't order the Swirly Bird stamp set, the Sweet Sugarplum ink pad, & the Sweet Sugarplum ribbon until June 1st., so it is not included in the supply list below.

Have fun watching the video and see how I put it all together.  I am trying yet a different camera set up so please be patient with me as I try to figure out what works best for me and gives you the best view.

Love the color combination of the Perfect Plum and the Sweet Sugarplum

Love the silver embellishments

Super cute and easy!

Happy Birthday Tiffany!  We love you so much and love that you are apart of our family.

By handsome son and the birthday girl
