Plant Smiles

Hello there.  I hope you enjoyed our new release that went live on Saturday.  I like to get a head start, so as I wait for June’s stamps to arrive (to make samples for you), I am already creating folds and such so I am prepared for stamping.

May release stamps are 15% off until May 8th.  Use my code TJ10Beth for a 10% discount on the rest of your shopping cart items.

I’ve been walking regularly at a local park, to hold diabetes at bay and for the exercise.  I lost 30 pounds since January 1st, using the Weight Watcher app, which I love.  It’s so easy to figure out points by scanning a bar code with my phone.  Another bonus to using the App, I can juggle my meals around to fit my points in.


Pinterest is a good source for finding card folds.  This particular card fold has intrigued me for years, but I never did it because it intimidated me.  Once I followed along with the tutorial, I found it quick easy.  I tried to find a link for you for the instructions, but I can’t locate the site where I saw it–LOL.

This new Technique Junkies stamp is called Plant Smiles.  I can never get enough of this style of stamp because I always find it interesting in how the sentiment looks after adding multiple colours.  To do this, simply place your stamp/cardstock into your Misti, or other tool, and colour each word and image in a different colour with watercolour markers.  Do this in small sections and repeat your colouring until the image is nice and crisp.  Once again, I used my handmade flowers to decorate the front of the card.


A close up of my handmade flowers.  Have you noticed that I’ve been including these into my cards lately?  I’m so in love with sitting in front of Netflix (currently watching Longmire) and working away creating them.

Love that sentiment and your flowers are just beautiful, I too enjoy just sitting and creating with my die cuts when I have the time, it makes creating cards so much quicker when we have things all made up!

What a great fold! Love this sweet stamp, and you have showcased it so nicely in all of your creations with it. This might be my favorite with the gorgeous handmade flowers! Beautifully done! And HOORAY on your taking time for YOU! Your health is so important, and I’m so proud of you! Keep up the good work! I had lost 125 pounds, but with Covid, have put about 15 back on. I’m wanting to lose it, but have no willpower right now. You inspire me to get off my patootie! Hugs!!!
