Night in Bethlehem

Hello fellow stampers!  The Christmas season will soon be upon us, and I have started making my cards.  This year I am making 10 of each design.  Normally I make 50 of one design, but I have gorgeous Christmas dies and stamps that I want to use.  I’ve had this SU set for a couple of years and this is the first time I used it.  There are so many pretty cards out there using Stampin’ Ups! Night in Bethlehem stamps and dies.

All I can say is, oh my goodness, it’s already November.  That’s when I get in panic mode and put the push to make pretty paper purses to hold small gifts, but this year I’m going to try a new card/gift box holder.  If I’m successful, I will post it.  Now a dear friend, Patti Gilliam is the queen of all thinks folded.  You can visit Patti’s blog Cherish Each Precious Day.

Have a great weekend!

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Tags

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  Well, in my house anyways.  Christmas shopping is done and now I’ve moved onto making my tags.  Believe it or not I spent 8 solid hours making my layered tags, using Stampn Ups Tags and Tidings stamp and die set.  As you can imagine, I was plum worn out after 8 straight hours and spent the rest of the day outside of my studio.

This is the first year I actually made my own tags, and completing 50 will do me for a couple of years.

Do you make your own tags?

Stampn’ Up Saturday

Hello fellow stampers!  When my work schedule permits me to attend a Stampn’ Up card class with Mary Beth Phillips, I jump at the opportunity.  We always have fun in our little group filling the room with laughter and swapping of stories and maybe a little teasing here and there.

I enjoy our class because it gives us the opportunity to use products or stamps we might not otherwise use.

Today my girlfriend of 4y years (we went to school with each other in grade five through highschool and remaind friends) and her partner are coming over for a visit.  Al and I are going to take them to a winery and brewery and then go back to my place for a long night of chatter.

What plans do you have this weekend?

Lovin’ my Stampn’ Up! Hedgehugs stamp set.  My son is crazy for hedgehogs and hopes to take after his grandfather in owning one.

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Saturday, Up Up and Away

Hello fellow stampers.  I hope you have a nice Easter weekend.  It’s going to be a busy one for me.  I worked today and came home to a family birthday.  I had so much fun putting together birthday presents for a step-granddaughter and step-daughter.

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday and I managed to take the day off of work to spend with family.  Al and I are making a big turkey dinner for my aunt, uncle and cousin.  Unfortunately my daughter lives 8 hours away and my son picked up a shift at work so it will be a small gathering.

I’ve been stamping a lot over the past couple of months.  Having this Stampin’ Up! set for quite some time, I decided to make a card for a variety of occasions.  I now tend to make 4 to 8 cards at a time because I already know the dimensions and have the dies/stamps out.  I stamped several sentiments on the inside–for congratulations, lifting me up, etc.  It is a very versatile stamp and die set.

I used River Rock paper and ink pad, and Real Red for the “Love.”

How are you spending Easter?  I’d love to hear from you.

Using Stampn’ Up’s Thoughts and Prayers set, I created 8 cards for my sympathy stash.

Here is a close up of one that I added buttons for the hand-delivered card.

Stampn Up Saturday – Tasty Trucks

The moment I saw this card I knew I had to CASE it and following the directions so generously supplied.  I’m always looking for unique cards to make my family and friends.  This one has an acetate window that I stamped Congratulations on it as this card is made for my daughter and son-in-laws wedding anniversary.

Why an ice cream truck you ask?  Well, they had a green ice cream truck waiting for us on the hot August wedding when we came out of the church.  Free ice cream for everyone.

I’m sure they are going to wonder if they will receive a card, other than an ice cream truck, for their anniversary, but I like the reminder of the fun we had.

At 2:00 this afternoon Al and I will be married outdoors in Niagara Falls, nestled in the woods with a small wooden chapel. Photos to follow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stampn Up Saturday – Feathery Friends RAK

One of the stamp sets I wanted so, so bad was a hostess set and I never had a party.  I just attend them.  Well, my on-line friend Tina Zinck,of The Serene Stamper, who is an independent Stampn Up Demonstrator, gifted me with this stamp set, along with a card she made in this Eclipse video.  I am so blessed to have such a dear on-line friend.  The cool thing is she is Canadian, like me.  So if you’re looking for a demonstrator I would recommend using Tina.

This is the card I made using this stamp set, and I made five of these cards. and two similar thank you ones.

Thanks for stopping by
