Hello Friends!

Oh My has been along time since I've posted on my blog!  I still create but this summer has been very busy as we are replacing our screen-in deck and between the weather and the city taking their time to come and do what they have to do, it has been a long process, but the end is insight now and hopefully we will get to enjoy the deck before it gets too cold!

I have been making some cards, so instead of listing all of the details like normal, I'm just going to share some pictures with you!

I'll share a few more next week, enjoy!  Mary

Hey, Valentine

For the past two years, I've stamped for my daughter Valentine theme items so that she can let her two boys give out at daycare.  This year she found some kind of popcorn called Booty Popcorn, so she wanted a pirate theme, here is what is I made.

I made 26 of these for her to attach to the package.  I used SU Blends and in no time at all, had them all know how I like to color!

Also made the three teacher cards too!

For the teachers cards I used: SU new Meant To Be along with the Framelits, Be Mine

For this card I also used the same two items and CASEd Amy Koenders card

The above two cards were for my daughters, one love pink. one loves purple and I used SU Bike Ride and a retired SAB set called Pedal Pusher, for the hearts in the baskets.

This last one I made for the grandsons and I used the new dog punch and Happy Tails stamp set from SU.  My daughter loves this one because the spotted dog reminded her of the dog that they loss last year due to a brain tumor.

Thanks for stopping in!  Mary

First Birthday Card

My little grandson turned one in January and his Mama decided to have a Fiesta Taco Bar for those who came to celebrate with him!  So I pulled out this stamp set, Birthday Fiesta and the retired DSP, Festive Birthday to go along with the birthday theme!

I also used the retired Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers Framelits, to bad Stampin Up retired those framelits, they are so handy to have!  I also used the swash stamp from Sheltering Tree to give the llama some ground to stand on.  Over all I think it turned out really cute!  Mary

New Year, New Beginnings

Well my Craft room peeps, it was with much thought and soul searching, but I have to decided to resign as a Stamping; Up! demonstrator.  I will be resigning sometime this month.  I'm finding that I have to buy too much and not using the products as much because it retires so quickly and I don't have a customer base either.  I will still use their products in the future but now I can also use the retired items that I have in my craft room and not have to worry about showcasing new items on each blog post!

Here are some of the things I have been doing for awhile but have not shared on here.

Well enough sharing for today.  If I find that no one is coming to my blog, then I will not be posting anymore on it!

Have a wonderful day and a Happy New Years too!    Mary

Accented Blooms

Here is one of the new stamp sets from the new annual catalog.  Since they have brought back the Blends and I like to color, I got this set.  I can see using different sentiments with this set too.  I used the new Subtle embossing folder, it gives just enough texture to the background.

I found a free watermarking app for my phone and it makes it SO easy to do now!

Accented Blooms
Embossing Folder-Subtle
Assorted SU Blends
Whisper White, Basic Black and Coastal Cabana card stock

Have a great day!  Mary

Mother's Day Gift Bag

Saturday my daughter brought over my two little grandson's so that they could give me my Mother's Day gift.  Well I had bought my daughter some Young Living items but forgot about wrapping them until right before they came.  So I went into the craft room and snagged one of the left-over gift bags that I had from when I made them for her baby shower, you can view them HERE All I did was punch out a 2-1/4" circle, stamped some images from Apron of Love on it and adhere it over the original image!  Whew, I got done just as they pulled up in front of our house and I must say, it came out rather cute too!

Thank you for stopping in, see you on another day.  Mary

You're Priceless, Take Two

I once again used this stamp set to send a thank you card, but this time to my direct Upline.  This time I made a regular A2 size card, while she is not a Diamond yet, she will be in the near future!

This time I used Pool Party for my ink color and colored in the Diamond with my Blender pen.  I also did some embossing with Silver, which is her rank right now, to tie it altogether!  I also used the Stitched Square framelits for the main sentiment.  The ribbon is retired Pool Party Seam Binding.

Thank you for coming by see my creations, would love to hear from some of you too!!  Mary

You're Priceless

I needed to send a thank you note to one of my Young Living uplines to thank her for a book she sent me when I meet a goal.  Since she is a Diamond, I thought this card would be appropriate to send to her!

Here is what I used:

Note card and envelope
Card stock: Basic Black, Whisper White
Watercolor Paper
Aqua Painter
Ink: Memento Black and Marina Mist
Stitched Square Framelits

I hope she liked it!  Mary
