We have arrived

Hello, Thanks for reading. Husband & I have arrived safe and sound in Phoenix with a little surprise- we discovered on day that we were supposed to move that I am expecting! We discovered it in the emergency room as I had a serious bout of nausea that left me dehydrated yet it was a happy night! We'd already given our last day notice on the apartment so we set up at my parents for the night- unconditional love was very nice to get us through a stressful night. Now that I'm set up at my parents house while we search for our forever home, I am determined to get some videos up and put some new cards on the etsy shop. I haven't been active at all in stampin' up due to my nausea, but I feel like I've turned the corner. In a little over a week and a half, we'll find out if our jelly bean is a boy or a girl! I am setting up for my new video now so check in soon to see it edited into this post

New Card idea - Sprinkles of life

I am having some stampin' up! time today and found this video across the internet. The card looks so bright and beautiful! This is something that I'm considering for my niece's birthday. It looks like the perfect one. I don't have the watermelon lace however so I'm going to try with mint macaroon and see how it looks.  This is my inspiration from  I'll be posting my own version ASAP!

Last chance to buy these products

Tonight is my 'Sunday' that was a pleasant day at Balboa Park touring the Model Railroad museum and the Japanese friendship garden. It was so lovely!  I was inspired to come home and create.  I tried something new - a treat card. I am so unhappy that these are retiring.  I'm wondering if there are more of these that I can stock up on!  Here is what I created tonight

These were created with the You Plus Me stack. I love this paper!  I wonder if its sold out or if I can stock up on some more...   This is the bundle:

You Plus Me Clear Bundle 138880


I am so happy with these mini 3 x 3 cards. I love to stamp a little bit, draw with an aqua painter and cut perfect diecuts with the framelets. Cute & fast, my favorite gift to send out.

Butterfly Basics Clear Bundle

139323 Price$51.75

Chalk Talk is retiring sadly, but thankfully Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss are staying around! 

If you'd like to see how to create these, come by one of my stampin' up classes. Or if you'd like to create, you can shop 24/7 on my online store

Card swap

Watercolor Wash

This is a quick card that can be made simply and quickly.I was experimenting with the direct marker to stamp technique and the aqua painter. I prefer the soft watercolor wash that you achieve with the aqua painter.

Some use a marker - like I did above- in a wash technique. I didn't like the streaky look of the marker technique.  With a few more minutes and supplies, you can create a stepped up card like this one

I achieved this superior wash and real watercolor look by using water color paper, blackberry bliss ink (directly from the ink pad) and an aqua painter. I added a candy dot to the bitty butterfly for the 3D look. This is a 3 x 3 mini card that is so appealing to me right now! These are what I am giving to my attendees as a thank you for attendance,

Would you like to learn this super easy look? Come to a card class with me on the 18th of this month
