Talk Like a Pirate Day Card

Talk Like a Pirate Day – believe it or not, it is the 20th Anniversary of this holiday!  It all began in 1995 with two guys deciding on the date while playing racquetball.  If you want more details, check out this web page – http://www.talklikeapirate.com/about.html

So, I decided to create a card just for the occasion.  I love the new Black Glitter Paper and the Howl-O-Ween Treat stamp set and Boo to You Framelits – they worked perfectly for this card!

Camper Punch Art

It has been a rough few weeks – one of the big obstacles for me and my blog is my watermark.  For some reason, my WordPress blog is no longer liking the watermark I’ve been using for over 3 years.  I’ve tried to reload it, rework it, and it is just leaving me frustrated and sad.  If you are a WordPress blogger and/or know what I need to do to fix my watermark, please let me know.  It is getting the best of me!

At this week’s Mardi Gras Punch Stamp Camp, this was one of the favorite cards!  I used the Window Frames framelits for the main camper section, Retro Fresh DSP, and the You’re Lovely stamp set to create this card (along with several punches of course).

Fall Scarecrow Punch Card

I think my customers (many who have become some of my best friends) know how much I love punch art stamping.  Besides Christmas cards, it is probably my favorite thing to create in my stamp room.  With all the resources out in the world wide web, our creativity is certainly boosted by other stampers sharing their works of art.  I based this card on another one I saw a while ago and just changed a few things.  Even after “professionally” stamping for 13 years, I rely on CASEing (copy and share everything) for some projects.

I’m asking anyone who reads this blog over the weekend to share where they find their inspiration.  I’m going to do a drawing for a free package of Basic Pearls on Sunday evening.  Just leave your name, email, and one place your crafting muse comes alive.

And to my faithful customers, thank you for your support and friendship over the last 13 years!

Halloween Hello Viewmaster Card

Well, today is my official 13th anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  I truly do LOVE being a demonstrator and sharing my knowledge of and passion for stamping.  I started teaching Technique Classes in August of 2007.  To date, I have taught 66 classes (next Tuesday it will be #67) – meaning I’ve shared over 198 techniques (201 next Tuesday) over the years.

This card features the Viewmaster Card Technique – a technique I learned at a regional event.  My customers made this card at August’s Technique Tuesday event!  It is a perfect card for those smaller stamp images.

I’d like to know what is your favorite stamping technique!  Share your name, email, and favorite technique, and I’ll put you in the drawing for a FREE TECHNIQUE CLASS FEE!

Halloween Hello Shaker Card

Thank goodness for my craft hoarding…I picked up some fake spiders and pumpkin confetti many years ago.  They were perfect for this card!  I used my white gel pen for the polka dots around the scallop. Treat cups were used for this shaker card – they make them so easy!

It’s Happy Hour!

Hello!

Welcome to my stop on the VC Rocks June 2012 blog hop.  You probably came from Toni Tessler's blog .  This time around we are focusing on any size cards!  I created a Z Fold card for my Birthday Blowout Stamp Camp this week.  Z Fold cards are easy and fun to create. 

One of the must-have stamp sets for me this year was Happy Hour. I like the whimsical feel of the stamps! The Polka Dot DSP matched perfectly with the image I used too! Here is my creation:

2012 VC Rocks June Blog Hop Happy Hour Z Fold Card

2012 VC Rocks June Blog Hop Happy Hour Z Fold Card

The Z Fold card is a wonderful way to package a gift card.  Just put a few glue dots on the back of the gift card and put it on the inside part of the flap. 

Color combination on this card was Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, and Whisper White.  The new stitched ribbon is so sweet.  Did you know you can use your 1/2" circle punch to punch out the lemon (lime, orange, or?) slice?  All you need to do is stamp the image, use the punch, cut it in half, and you have your slice!  Much easier than hand cutting that little dickens!

 Well, there are lots of stops on this blog hop. Pam Mullis is the next stop along the way.  Hmmm, I think I am going to fix myself a cocktail!
