It has been quite a while since I was last here. Sorry about that. I’ve been really busy doing life! 🙂 But today I have a video for you on a pretty simple watercolor technique that anybody should be able to do and I mean anybody because if I can pull it off…anyone can. Actually we did this technique at my April card club on Saturday and NO ONE’S turned out bad! Each piece was unique in its own way and ALL were very beautiful! The ink colors I used in the watercolor are retiring along with the Berry Burst and Powder Pink Paper. The watercolor paper is retiring as well, but Stampin’ Up! is not getting rid of it entirely. They are bringing out another version. If you still have questions after you watch the video, let me know.
A few items you will need when watercoloring that are not listed in any of the supply lists are a clip board, blue painters tape, paper towel, and small trays to hold your ink. I used the tops to embellishment container. I always save the container when I’ve used up an embellishment. They have come in handy for a multitude of uses.
I am also sharing photos of the other three cards we made at club along with their supply lists. If you have questions on those you can email me about them as well.

So I hope you enjoyed your visit here today! Until next time!
A quick post today. I was very happy when the First Frost stamp set was carried over from the Holiday Catalog! Now all we need to do is hope it is carried over into the next Annual Catalog. This set is beautiful and so versatile! I made Christmas Cards with it this past holiday season. The card I’m sharing today can be used as a birthday or wedding card. I got the idea for this color combination from another card I saw on Pintrist. I really should make note of the individuals I get ideas from, but I don’t. One of my shortcomings. Oh, well. It’s hard to be perfect all of the time. 🙂 The other stamp set I used is Stitched All Around. It’s funny, because I wasn’t going to get this set or the Stitched Label Framelits, but when my good friend told me she accidentally ordered it twice, I decided to purchase it from her. I’m glad I did. The framelits are beautiful and the sentiments on the stamp set are great.
I hope you like the card.
Until next time…

It’s another snowy and frigid day here in Colorado Springs, so I decided to do a quick post of the cards we made at my January stamp club. We do four cards each month and since Sale-a-bration is in full swing, we used two sets from that catalog; Home to Roost and Lasting Lilly. I think both are pretty awesome sets. And, if you know me, the Home to Roost set was the first one I got! I used the Home to Roost example in the SAB catalog for my inspiration. The inspiration for the sympathy card came from a sample I saw at On Stage in Orlando. I don’t know where I got the inspiration for the other two. I don’t remember. Here they are!
Remember, with every $50.00 purchase you make from either the Annual or Occasions Catalogs you earn a free item from the Sale-a-braton catalog. So Home to Roost and Lasting Lilly can be yours too!
If you have any questions about any of these cards, please feel free to contact me. Until next time…

Happy New Year!
A week ago, our new Occasions Catalog went active along with this year’s Sale-a-bration. That’s me…usually a day late and a dollar short! You don’t know what Sale-a-bration is? Well, let me tell you…for every $50.00 you spend in regular product from any of our active catalogs, you can get an item in our Sale-a-bration catalog FREE! Now that’s a deal, if you ask me.
You say you don’t have TIME to stamp? Well the cards I’m sharing today took me less than thirty minutes…NOT EACH…but for ALL THREE! That’s right, they are simple but still beautiful. it just goes to show you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a nice card and you don’t have to have all day to create one; just thirty minutes and you can make three!
The first two cards are for Valentine’s Day and are made with sets that are in the current Occasions Catalog. The last card is made with a set that I got for free which is in Sale-a-bration. And if you know me, if there is a rooster set available, it is the first one I will choose because I am a chicken lover! In October my sister took a count of how many rooster/chickens I have in my home in some form or another and I think she stopped counting at around 97. I know…it’s a sickness.
So here are the cards that I created with plain white paper, ink and a stamp set. Hope you like them.
