Lotus Stamp Set Video Tutorial

Thank you for joining me.  I have filmed a new video tonight on how to use the Lotus Blossom stamp set. This stamp set is only available for one more day through sale - a - bration if you want to choose it as your free gift during the big stampin' up! sale.  I like this stamp set because of how forgiving the three step process is. As you can see in the video, you can create a quick card very easily and I think that these flowers look very elegant.

Painted Petals & Irrestibly Yours - Sale a bration items. SAB ends tomorrow!

I hope that today is going well with you. My husband piked up a swap at work today so I am left with some hours to kill that are normally spent remembering what he looks like since we've been on these opposite shifts :P  Today I am sharing a video with you that I made last week using the sponge dauber to place ink on the Irrestibly Yours paper. This is a great technique to match this paper to any project that you are creating. I am going to make another video today - leave a comment and let me know what you would like to learn how to create!

Stampin' Up sale is ending today - that whole Sale a bration catalog will be retiring. If you want to check it out or place an order, you can do so right here. I appreciate it!

New Video: Painted Petals & Irresistibly yours

Thank you for reading. Today I want to share with you three cards that I have created with the Sale - a - bration stamp set Painted Petals. This set and the designer series paper is only available through March 31st. In these two cards, I embossed Blackberry Bliss paper with fancy fan embossing folder. I used the Ovals Collection framelet to stamp a quick but pretty sentiment! In card one I used a strip of Melon Mambo to separate the DSP and add dimension.  On the second card, I used the You Plus Me washi tape.

I have uploaded a new video today featuring two of the Sale - a - bration products - Painted Petals & Irresistibly Yours. I go over basic techniques for making spring Thank you card.

Blendabilities Issues

Hello every one,

Many of you may already be aware that we have experienced a quality issue with our Blendabilities product line, and we thank you for your patience as we’ve worked through this sensitive matter.

We’ve done everything possible to work with our manufacturer; unfortunately, with no solution in sight, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to discontinue this popular product line.
We have provided you with a Q & A in the hopes that this will answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Thank you for your support as we continue to look for products that will meet our customer’s needs and provide you with the quality that you have come to expect from Stampin’ Up!

Stay tuned to my blog as I will be experimenting with how you can use the stamp sets & translucent papers that were offered for use with Blendabilities by substituting stampin' write markers & ink refills.
