Geometrical & New Weekly Deals

Do you enjoy stamping with others? I know I do and I always love going to my friend Kathleen’s monthly meeting and learning new things while spending time with my demonstrator friends.

Today’s project is one that uses the Geometrical stamp set (133158/133161) and Triangle Punch (133375) from the Occasions Catalog.

Geometrical Stamp Divas May 2014

Did you know that the Occasions Catalog ends on Sunday, June 1st? So if there is something that you haven’t gotten yet and want in the Occasions Catalog you’ll want to place your order this week.

Back to the card, this fun card was one of the projects I made during our monthly meeting as a Make ‘n Take. We simply stamped our triangles in the color we wanted, curled the ends with a Bone Folder and attached to a circle to hold them in place before adding it to our card front. The stem is just a scrap and of course this fun greeting is one you’ll find in the Really Good Greetings stamp set (130330/130333).

Want to join in the fun? Have you ever thought about becoming a demonstrator? Want to earn a little extra cash or get a discount – the choice is up to you when you’re a demonstrator, so why not join my TEAM? I’d love to speak with you about it and we’ve got a special promotion starting tomorrow so it is a great time to join.

Really Good Greetings

This week I’ll be sharing some more of the great convention swaps that I received. I hope you are enjoying them. So without further ado…. Here is another great card that I received from Wanda at convention using the Really Good Greetings stamp set. There are a lot of fresh, fun greetings that come in this set that I think you’ll really enjoy. This card uses one of my favorites and isn’t it great it fits right inside one of our Chalk Talk Framelits?

Really Good Greetings convention swap 2013

I just love the way Stampin’ Up! items coordinate together. It is one of the things that initially drew me to Stampin’ Up! when I began stamping all those years ago. I quickly learned that I saved money because I wasn’t always trying to find something that would work together with something I already had like I did when I purchased things at my local big box store.

If you love the Flower Shop stamp set as much as I do you’ll want to check out my video with hints on how to assemble your stamps so they line up easily with the coordinating punch. Click HERE to see that post.

Bright Blossoms

This morning first thing I went out and picked our 9 blueberry bushes which are now starting to coming in. It’s supposed to rain again today so I didn’t want to miss out on any due to the afternoon storms.

I love blueberry season and seeing the plump ripe berries on the bushes each year makes me happy – they’re so yummy and our bushes here are just starting to bear well now since they are about 4 years old. I’d gotten spoiled at our old house since the bushes were over 10 years old and we’d get gallons each summer. Here is a photo of the bowl I picked.


Why am I telling you about this? Well it inspired me to create a card for you today that has a blueberries theme.

Bright Blossoms Blueberries

So what do you think? Does it look like blueberries or a blueberry bush? I’ve used the Bright Blossoms stamp set (item 128424/125497) and stamped off in order to get the different shades of Midnight Muse and Gumball Green. I used my ½” Circle Punch to punch out the holes and wrapped my ribbon around the layer of Whisper White.

I love the sentiment that I used from the Really Good Greetings stamp set – it just seemed, well, perfect for this card. I think however, if I had to do it over again I would stamp the sentiment in Midnight Muse instead of the Gumball Green so that it popped!

Stop back tomorrow and I’ll share with you a favorite recipe for what I made with some of these yummy blueberries.

Six-Sided Sampler Birthday

Today’s card is one that I created this weekend during the Blue Mountain Stamper’s Retreat with my brother in mind. I thought this set, with its great hexagon images, would be perfect for a masculine card.  His birthday was Saturday so this will be a bit late, but I’m sure he won’t mind. I used the Six-Sided Sampler Bundle (item 132725/132724) along with the Really Good Greetings (item 130330/130333) from the NEW 2013-2014 Catalog.

Isn’t it great that we have more bundles offered in the NEW 2013-2014 Catalog like the NEW Six-Sided Sampler Bundle? Not only do you get the stamp set and punch, but you’ll get a 15% discount when ordering them together! It’s a win, win right?

I mentioned in my last post that I was getting ready for my Blue Mountain Stampers’ Retreat. I can’t tell you how much fun I had spending the whole weekend with my fellow demonstrators. I believe everyone whole heartedly agreed that we should at least make it a yearly event, maybe more – This event is now one of the perks of being part of my team – Fellowship, Fun and Sharing (along with an all night slumber party! What great girl time or just time away from the stresses of regular life, yippee!) Some of the girls have never been to my home here in Clarkesville so they really enjoyed the scenery and quiet. And believe me creative juices flowed well into the night; I know I was shocked to see it was the week hours of the morning when I looked up at the clock!

Here is a shot of my classroom set up and ready for the event.

A snack table for goodies to recharge and of course lots of coffee, caffeine and chocolate at the ready!
