Card 2

           Good morning and welcome back! I told you I have been busy. Here is card 2 of the Christmas  card Bonanza class that is coming up in August.
           This card is a complete case. When I saw it I loved it. Here is the thing, I cased it from someone on Stampin Connection who pinned it from Pinterest. I checked out both sights and can not find out who the original creator was, so I apologize for not being able to give credit of this beautiful card to it's original creator. I will say this, thank you so much for sharing it with us. It's such a tranquil scene. It's pretty simple to re-create too.

Supplies and technique for this class
Stamps: Lovely As A Tree, Greetings Of The Season
Inks:  Pool Party, Sahara Sand, VersaMark pad
Card Stock: Water Color Paper, Pool Party and Baked Brown Sugar
Accessories: Stamping Daubers,White embossing Powder, Dazzling Diamonda, 2 way glue Pen, Basic Pearl Jewels, dimensionals, Sticky Strip Tombow multipurpose Glue.
    I stamped Lovely As A Tree with VersaMark, then added White embossing Powder and heated it with the Heat tool. Then I sponged the Sahara Sand onto the image using a dauber, then I added Dazzling Diamonds using the 2 way glue Pen. Then I sponge the Pool Party using a sponge dauber all around the image.  I suggest sponging everything before adding the dazzling Diamonds because I ended up getting the dazzling diamonds glitter on my Pool Party  ink pad.
      That's it for today, come back and visit and I will show you a couple more of the cards we will be making. I hope you enjoyed, have a great day, til next time!
Happy Stamping!

Stamping classes to begin soon

Welcome back friends,

     Hope all is well. I took off the months of July and August from scheduling any stamping classes. I'm getting excited to start up again. I have a few ideas and creations going through my head. The hardest part about scheduling is when to do the classes. What day and times work best for everyone involved, including myself because I work different hours every week and no definite day off.  Bare with me I'm sure I can make something work out, in the mean time stay tuned for updates between now and next month. Thanks for stopping by. Til next time have a great day.
Happy Stamping

Some Inspiration finally.

Welcome back,

    I did get a little inspiration finally from a fellow SC member, the card and the book mark were inspired by Jessica Urratia at Thank you for your sharing. I changed up the DSP and the colors and the embellishments and came up with these then I decided to make a couple of magnets to go along with it  and packaged them all into a gift set which I will be giving to my sister in law for her birthday. While I was making these I thought to myself that this would make a great class or stamp camp. I'm thinking maybe in September or even late August. 
 Stay tuned and I will have dates and directions to all these soon. Thanks for dropping by. Have an amazing day. Til next time.
Happy Stamping!

Post 4rth of July

Welcome back friends,

    The 4rth of July has come and gone and the stores will now start putting out their Fall and  winter clothes, now really? We are only half way through the summer. Anyways hope every one had a wonderful holiday and were able to spend time with family and friends. If any one was on vacation this was the week to be on one. It was quiet for us we did do a couple of things like the fire works and block party, and then a Kimball's run on the fourth.
    Haven't done any crafting  for a while, let's say I'm in an inspiration slump. I hope I come out of it soon. Any one else get into these slumps? and if you do how do you get out of them? I have new products and colors and haven't used a one. If any one has any suggestions on what they do to get out of a slump, I would love to hear from you. Til next time , have a great day. Thanks for visiting.
