Water Coloring with Aqua Painters

Hi Stampers,

Earlier this month I promised a video on a new water coloring technique I recently learned.  Well, here it is!  :o)  I hope you enjoy it and it works as well for you as it does for me.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Hey Chick!

It is a cold and cloudy day today here in Colorado.  A good day to stamp!  So I thought I’d share a little of what I’ve been working on with you.

This card is made with a Sale-A-Bration set,  and as far as I am concerned, it is a must have!  Hey Chick is such a cute set.  Being an avid chicken collector (I collect vintage and antique roosters), I was sure to get this set first.

I like this chicken because it sort of looks like my hair when I get out of bed in the morning.  It is usually standing straight up on the left side, and this guys hair reminded me of…me!   LOL!  The only difference is my hair isn’t blue and my body isn’t yellow and I don’t have tail feathers.  My husband would tell you otherwise because says I am always getting my tail feathers in a ruffle.  🙂

Here is a graphic of the other stamps in the set.

When I made this card, I used a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Soft Suede card stock for the base.  The designer series paper is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.  The striped piece measures 2 1/2″ x 5 ” and the dotted piece is 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″.  The top piece of Soft Suede card stock measures 2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and the Whisper White piece upon which I stamped measure 2″ x 3″.  I added a piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ to the inside so that I could write a note of thanks in there for a special lady.

I hope  you enjoyed your visit here today.  It was short and I hope sweet!  Until next time

Happy Stamping!

Pop-Up Valentine in a Box

Hello Stampers!

Today I am sharing a video on how to make this special Valentine card for the special person in your life.  This one is for my husband…lucky guy!  🙂

What makes this Valentine so unique is it comes in a box, and when you remove the lid, the card pops up out of the box.

Adorable!  And it is really easy to make.

I hope you enjoy your visit today!  Until next time…

Cool Treats Birthday Shaker

Hello Everyone!

It has been awhile since I’ve been here.  I am just now getting back to normal after the holidays.  I sincerely hope all of you had a wonderful time over the holidays with your friends and family.

December was a busy month for us, as I am sure it was for all of you.  It was an extra special December as my daughter graduated from nursing school on the 17th of December. She already has an undergraduate degree, but decided to change careers a few years ago.  She completed a very accelerated one-year nursing program at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Denver which she started last January.  There were many times when she called and said, “I think I’m gonna move over to a more traditional program.”  And I replied, “No, you won’t.  It will be over before you know it and if you switch now you know you will be disappointed.”  I am sure it was tough…I went through an accelerated teaching program when I was in school…I’m sure her program was even more difficult.  But she did it!  She finished it!  She graduated Magna Cum Laude…along with many of the others in her class.  I guess you need to be a very smart over achievers to get through a tough program like that!  She sure doesn’t take after me where that is concerned!  But we are proud of her.  We always have been and always will be. Here she is.  The graduate!

She is spending her days studying to pass her state exam which she takes in a few weeks, and then she will be moving right into her first nursing job at a hospital in Denver.  It never ceases to amaze me how she gets jobs before she is even finished with school.  It happened after she graduated 10 years ago, and it has happened again.  But that is a good thing, I guess.

Enough talking about my child, and time to share one of the things I’ve been working on since the new Occasions Catalog has debuted.  I just love this stamp set.  I think EVERYONE should have it.  And I LOVE the colors of the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.  My eyes always move toward brighter colors and this paper is just that.   And the Sprinkles Embellishments look yummy! Everything in the Cool Treats Suite make me feel happy and looks good enough to eat.

For the window on the front of this card, I used the second largest scallop circle from the circle framelits.

Hope your visit here was enjoyable.  Until next time…

Happy Stamping!
