Walking Through a {black & gold} Winter Wonderland


How do you feel about Christmas cards that aren't the traditional Red & Green?

I tried a little "out of the holiday color box" card with the (sadly) soon-to-be-retiring Wonderland stamp set and I think it is quite elegant:


To create the stars on the background, I squoze 5-6 drops of multipurpose glue into an empty button or brad container and added a few drops of water, then mixed it with an Aqua Painter. Then I tapped the Aqua Painter on my hand over the top of the embossed card stock so it splattered all over it. Finally, I sprinkled gold glitter over the splatters and shook off the excess. 


On this version I used gold baker's twine in the button, but I can tell you the gold cord trim is MUCH easier to thread through the holes.

Thankful Fall Wreath Card

Glad I had a moment to stamp today because the challenges at TGIF and Friday Mashup were a perfect pairing:

Salt Star Background for The Kindness Projects

A friend asked for cards for a teenage boy who needed some encouragement and it was so 
delightful to create something to bring a smile to someones face (I hope!):


Boys are hard to stamp for sometimes. Especially teenage boys. So I pulled out the Calling All Heroes stamp set (Item #138002...only available while supplies last!) and put on my thinking cap. I started by turning my cardstock to landscape for a different look to the circle card thinlit die. I used a 4.25" x 7.25" piece of Pacific Point card stock and didn't run it all the way through; just over the circle side and back. 

My friend Lou Ann showed me how to make a starry night with salt so I decided to incorporate that into my card, too:


Start with a Daffodil Delight (or white) piece of card stock and sprinkle salt over it. Place it between the cutting pads and run it through the Big Shot on the Multipurpose Platform with all tabs closed. Shake/brush off the salt (remember to wipe off the cutting pads too!).

Next, brayer over the salt-embossed paper with a dark color (I used Night of Navy). Make sure the salt/dot impressions are pushing DOWN and your ink won't reach them, creating a starry, starry night. Add a city or space-scape and voila, the milky way appears!

Birth-Date Color: A Thai-Tradition!


At convention Stampin' Up! announced that the 2017 Grand Vacation demonstrators can earn will be to Phuket, Thailand! Now I have a goal :)

Did you know that according to Thai tradition, each day of the week is assigned a color and the color for the day you were born is supposed to be your lucky color?! Find out your lucky Stampin' Up! color by finding out which day of the week you were born on and then click here for your SU! Birthdate Hue.

In honor of the birthday I recently celebrated, I created this monochromatic card in MY color (Melon Mambo) and used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

A Gift Bag for the New Mr. & Mrs.

Is your refrigerator covered with wedding invitations like mine? 
You need to make a few of these to have on hand: Just drop in a gift and go! 


I'm kind of in love with the new Mint Macaron In-Color for 2015-2016: It's so elegant! Paired with the new Tip-Top Taupe (another new In-Color) it's a perfect marriage of color (pun intended). The gorgeous Dotted Lace trim comes in all 5 of the new hues, too. I picked up the handled-bag at the dollar store, but everything else can be found in my online store.

And if you don't have the Bow Builder Punch, order it immediately. Seriously.

Serendipity that this coincides with the #TGIFC08 challenge and co-ordinates with their colors, too:

Thanks for checking in and wishing you wonderful weddings!

Need an Excuse to Run Away? Join a Club!

Stamp club members look forward to a night with adult conversation over crafts and often linger longer while family gets to bed or significant other is watching sports :) Some clubs meet in the daytime while the kids are at school, so their family is none-the-wiser!


There is ALWAYS food, laughter, friendship and STAMPING.

If you need an excuse to exercise those flabby creative muscles, a stamp club will help you tone them up! Download a club form to answer questions you may have and get it to me ASAP to join as most clubs begin in JULY.

If you are in Utah, but not in Utah County, I can find a demonstrator close to you OR help you start a Stampin' Up! business of your own!

Just want to host a party one time? Of COURSE!

Let's plan a crafting class that your friends will want to attend! We can even do one online. 
Just give me a call at 801-376-8685.
