Here's the card that I promised yesterday.  It's done by embossing the image with white embossing powder and then colored with the blendabilities pens.  You'll have to try it sometime.

Since I've neglected this blog so much lately I decided to bomb you with cards today.  These are the cards from last weeks card class. 
This card is using a new embossing folder called Lovely Lace and I love it.  The cross and greeting are from a new set called Blessed by God.  We embossed the images in white embossing powder and then colored them with the new Blendabilities pens.  Tomorrow I'll show you another card done with this method.

The DSP here is Lullaby.   The stamp set is From My Heart.

This is one of my new favorite stamp sets.  Traveler.  And of course the trees are Lovely as a Tree.  I hope this set never retires.

And this card uses an old favorite called Sketched Birthday.  The background on the So Saffron is done with marbles.  Just put a couple of drops of ink in an old stamp case and add a couple of marbles.  Roll the marbles around to get them covered and then adhere (use very little)  your card stock to the inside of the top, turn the case over and roll the marbles around. 

This card uses the stamp set called Flowering Flourishes and the Petite Petal punch.  And below is a close up of the rhinestones.  You can color rhinestone with your blendabilities.  This color is the darkest pen in the skin tone set.  Cool, right?


This card uses another new stamp set called Boys Will Be Boys.  What can I say about this set except that everyone needs a stamp set to use for little boy cards.  And this is one of my favorite color combo's.  Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. 

And here's my June Christmas card.  Had to use my imagination for this one.  It's hard to do a Christmas card when most of the Christmas stamp sets have retired and the new mini won't be out for another month.  So this one is using the stamp set called Daydream Medallions.  And we got to play with the Stamp A Ma Jig because this is two different circle stamps.  Everyone tried it and some had better results than others.  And on a side note.  I had already lost the plastic sheet that came with the Stamp A Ma Jig.  What to do?  I looked at a lot of different things and then the light went on and I used the plastic case that some framelits came in.  I always put my framelits in a stamp case and the empty case was perfect to use with the Stamp A Ma Jig.  Of course I had to cut it down to a nice square but it works great.  And the best thing is that if I lose it again I know where to get another one.

It seems like forever since I've posted here.  Actually it's been way to long.  I think my brain is to old to handle all the different activities that I've had going on.  I need to sit down and ponder what I really want to be doing with my time.  But don't worry.  Every time I think about giving up Stampin' Up! I realize that I just can't do it.  I love this stuff to much.
So here's a new project.  Project Life, making memories.  It's not a new idea but now Stampin' Up! has partnered with Becky Higgins to bring you some exclusive product.  Project Life is about half way between traditional scrapbooking and just putting your pictures in an album.  There are several different configurations on the pages.  Just pick your page and start putting the pictures in.  There's different size openings so you can fit different size pictures in.  Or if your picture is bigger and you only have small openings left then just cut the picture to fit into two different openings like the picture below. 
You can also add journaling in some of the openings.  We have a box of cards that you can purchase or just cut card stock the right size.  You can add tickets, programs, etc to your pages.  And if you are a traditional scrapbooker then you can decorate each picture before you put it in.  However you do it you just need to get started.  And if you need supplies or just some more ideas let me know.  I've got some more pages done that I'll show you later. 

Get those picture out and start imagining how they'll look when you get them into a scrapbook.

June Recruit Special

This month is a great time to join Stampin' Up!  Why?  Because of blendabilities.  Blendabilities are the new alcohol markers and the only way to get them right now is if you're a demonstrator.  So we've got two different levels of recruiting right now.  For only $50.00 you get to pick $55.00 worth of items from the new catalog plus you'll get all the business supplies with it.  And our regular recruit deal is $99.00 and you get to pick $125.00 worth of items.  And of course you'll get the business supplies.  And when you're picking out what you want in your kit you can pick the blendabilities.  And what's your future requirements?  Nada, zip, zero.  If you want to stay active then you'll need to sell or buy $300.00 each quarter but even if you never buy another thing you can still take advantage of this special.  And if you do sign up then your first order you'll get a 30% discount and after that you'll get a 20% discount on everything in the catalog. And I'll have three months to convince you that this is the best thing you've done this year.  To join just go to my Stampin' Up! page and click on the "join now" button.  If you have any questions just let me know.  I'll be glad to help you.

Here's another card from the last card class.  This is a new stamp set called So Very Happy.  Have you got a new catalog yet?  If you need one please let me know and I'll see that you get one.  These are the best catalogs yet.  There's lots of card samples and tons of samples of other ways to use stamps.  I especially love all the idea's for packaging things.  Monday was the first day that we could order from the new catalog and I put in an order right away.  There's not quite so many post it tabs in my catalog now.  And the best part is that some of the stuff was free.  As a demonstrator we can earn free things based on our sales and recruiting.  And I saved my earnings from Sale A Bration to use in this new catalog.  You can do the same and right now Stampin' Up! has a $50.00 price for new recruits.  For only $50.00 you can become a demonstrator and get a discount on all of your stamping needs.  Just go to my Stampin' Up! page,, and use the "join the fun now" button and you can be enjoying the discounts too.
