Do A Jig--A Stamp-A-Majig

It's a beautiful Wednesday here! It's finally starting to feel like Fall...a little. We are no longer in the 90's-100's, so I am happy with that. When I walked out of the hospital today, I had no idea what beautiful weather I was going to encounter! I was so happy, I almost did a little jig right there in the parking lot.

Speaking of jigs, I have one for you. It's the Stamp-A-Majig. It's a great tool. I really wanted to give you a really good look on how to use it.

If you ever have any questions or requests, please feel free to contact me! I love to hear from my readers and viewers!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Tree Trimmings Christmas Card

I used the Tree Trimmings and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets from Stampin Up to create this Christmas card. I also used the new Christmas Cocoa specialty paper, which I just love. I love damask patterns and this one is flocked (think of velvet).

Now is a great time to start your Christmas cards. Get a head start so you can enjoy the process.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions on the cards I make or the products I use. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

This video was previously posted, but had some issues with YouTube. I think the issues have been resolved now.

Shimmer Paint Spray Experiment

I must admit, that I am a skeptic. So when I saw StampWithHeather use this shimmer spray, I had to see if making it was as easy as she said it was. I wanted to film the actual making of the spray from beginning to end so that you could see how easy or difficult it is for yourself. So you be the judge!

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this technique really is. You need some rubbing alcohol, Stampin Up's shimmer paint, and a spray bottle. I used the Champagne colored shimmer paint.

Enjoy your day!

Rockin Birthday

Here is a quick card that I made for my niece for her birthday. There is not a lot of stamping, but you can see that die cuts or stickers can be used on your cards.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Friends 24-7 Birthday Card

I LOVE the way this card turned out. I really wish the camera could capture the beauty of it, but it just can't do it justice.

I used the Friends 24-7, and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets to create this card. I also used the new shimmer paint in Champagne.

Stampin Up! colors used-Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango and Very Vanilla.
The hardware is from the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware kit.

Enjoy your weekend!

Petal Pizzazz Birthday Card

I am having a lot of fun with the Petal Pizzazz set. Here is a card I made for my niece, Hannah, using the Petal Pizzazz set. I also used the Happy Everything stamp set, which is one of my favorites.

I tried to create a younger color scheme than what I normally use. So I used Cameo Coral card stock and some green textured card stock by Core'dinations.

Enjoy! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I was able to film several videos this weekend, so I should be back with another video early in the week!

I appreciate your comments on my YouTube channel, or here on my blog!

Baby Card Challenge

It's a challenge for me and a challenge for you! I challenged myself not to use some of the supplies that I always use on this card. I think the result was great.

Feel free to challenge yourself and post a link to your card in the comments section of my blog! I hope you'll play along!

I just love this stamp set from Stampin Up! It's called Everything Nice. I used it on my last post for a birthday card. Love the "Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails" for a little boy. It would also make a great stamp for a scrapbook page.

Have a good weekend!
