I had a great time this weekend meeting with my local group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. They are so talented and FUN! I challenged them to come up with some “Manly” card samples this month. I will take photos today of their works of art to share with you.
In the meantime, it is Stamp A Stack week. That means I am having classes where we will make a stack of cards. If you are local, I hope you can attend! (RSVP here.)
I apologize for this photo. (Can I just say, it is time for a new phone!). In any case, I hope you get the idea. These are two of the cards we will be doing this week:
Both of these cards are using sets that will be retiring soon! (Chase Your Dreams and Crazy About You). I know! It breaks my heart too! If you want to see/purchase any retiring items, you can find then all here.
Thanks for stopping by!
For those of you who might have gotten the “Inside the Lines” paper free during the Sale a Bration special that just ended, I have sample that you might enjoy. This technique of using a magnify glass could work for any line image. When I saw this fun paper, I knew I liked it but was not sure I wanted to color ALL of it. Here is how I handled it:
One of my aunts used to do needlepoint and she always wanted the back to look as good as the front. I don’t have the same standards:
Our Foam Strips are great for this type of thing as you can manipulate them as you need to fit your shape.
Now–this is where I get lazy and don’t want to color the whole thing! Don’t be confused by my photo. The paper does not match the final product.
Color just what will be “magnified” .
Here is a close up where I hope you can see the Wink Of Stella that makes a statement!
So if you haven’t yet used this paper, get out there and get coloring. Such a fun look when only a small space is colored.
If you need any supplies to make your own cards, you can purchase them here.
Thanks for stopping by.
Wowzer! Stampin’ Up! announced their list of retiring products from both the Annual Catalog:
And the Occasions Catalog:
There are some fantastic products that are retiring that you will want to get your hands on before they are gone for good on May 31st. Good news for you! Some of those products are on sale for up to 50% off!! That is great news. The downside of that is that they are likely to sell out.
So carve out some time soon to sit down with your favorite beverage and go through the list. Here is where you can see what is retiring and shop!
While I place orders pretty frequently, you will want to order these on my website right away so that you don’t get shut out.
NOW–I have also seen what is coming. The future is bright!!! Trust me! More on that when I am able to share with you.
Thanks for stopping by.
