Brought a Smile


WOW have you been introduced to Pinterest yet?  I have and can't get enough of it.  From great recipes, to motivational quotes, cute animal pictures, gardening, DIY projects to things that just make you laugh.  Well this is one of those things that just made me laugh.  Oh how I remember eating that white paste in school.  Do you think it made a difference.

Remembering Christmas Stamp Set

Remembering Christmas Autumn Accents Bigz

Okay I have to say that the Remembering Christmas doesn't remind me of Christmas at all, but oh what a masculine stamp set.  I live in Northeast Ohio where the week after Thanksgiving is postponed for deer hunting, so this set speaks masculine card to me.   Lots of Big Shot Accessories with this card the Top Note Bigz Die along with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die and the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  The stamp set Label Love and the coordinating Artisan Label Punch just add the perfect mix.  Remember if you purchase the Label Love Stamp Set and the Artisan Label Punch together in a bundle you save 15%.  And who doesn't like to save.

Halloween Hello Stamp Set

Stampin' Up! does such an amazing job with their beautiful designer series paper.  This card uses the Witches' Brew Designer Paper which also matches the Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape.  So nice to have every thing matching from one source.  This card uses the Halloween Hello Stamp Set which you get in your class fee if you are able to attend my Halloween Sampler Class in September.  Check out all the details on my calendar. The thing I love the most about this card, which I got in a swap, is the way the creator used the Labels Collection Framelits and the Designer Frames Embossing Folder together.  Just love the look.

Halloween Happiness Stamp Set

Halloween Happiness Stamp Set_witches BrewDSP

Halloween Happiness Stamp is a single Halloween stamp found in this year's Stampin' Up! Season Catalog.  Love the fun pumpkins in this stamp.  The black glitter is from the Black & Orange Stampin' Glitter that is also found in this catalog.  Don't have the holiday catalog nor a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator?  No problem, send me your snail mail address and I will get the holiday catalog out to you.  The glitter is applied with the heat-n-stick powder, which I had not used in a very long time.  You simply need to ink your stamp in versamark ink pad, apply the heat-n-stick powder, kind of reminds me of laundry soap.  Do not over heat, as soon as it melts take away your heat gun.  Apply your glitter, it should stick on the image you stamped, brush off extra and lightly heat again.  Wahoo beautiful glittered image.
