STAY-AT-HOME EXPERIMENT - SANS STAMPING



Hi, Stampers!

I hope all of you are being very careful, obeying guidelines and are still safe and healthy.  Since our gym is closed, so no spin class, no Tai Chi class (I've been doing it at home),* no lunch group, no book club, no stamp camp this month, I've got time to PLAY with new stuff!!

The background on this "work of art" (I call it "Dark Before Dawn") was created on Yupo paper with Ranger Alcohol Inks (Tim Holtz):  Dandelion, Indigo, Coral and a tiny bit of Silver Mixative.  The flowers silhouette was simply die cut from Basic Black CS with the SU! Friendly Silhouettes Dies.

What have you been doing?


Happy Crafting!

*If you are interested in how to find some wonderful beginner Tai Chi videos on YouTube, let me know and I'll send you some names to look for.

STARTING TODAY - MORE SALE-A-BRATION FREE ITEMS


Hello, Stampers!
     It's been a while - our first cruise and travel fun and some not so fun - DH and I ending travel with sinus infections and lolling around the house for a week!  I even postponed March stamp camp to the 14th.  BUT, I'm feeling better now, so onward to SAB-2.
     Remember, that with China extending it's New Year due to the Coronavirus, although SU! attempted to stock up, some Sale-A-Bration items are limited and may run out before the promotion ends March 31.  For example, I think the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (#152312) is going to be quite popular, so you might want to shop sooner, rather than later if that is on your list (using the Host Code, of course ↗).  😀
     Need a little help getting to $50?  Some great add-ons are refills for your 2018-2020 In Colors!*  You know they will run out fast after SAB.  The pads are already listed as "low inventory."
    *Blueberry Bushel (love it), Pineapple Punch, Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, and Call Me Clover.


Happy Stampin’!

OVER THE MOON VALENTINES


Hi, Stampers!
     I love these little bovines and the sentiment, which I thought was perfect for Valentine's Day - cute and not sappy.  Here's a couple more versions.



     You can probably tell that a couple of the cows are popped up on Wobbles (mini), which you can find on Amazon or, probably most craft stores.  I'm not going to post step-by-step for these cute note cards because they are so individual.  I think you'll have plenty of information when you see the product list below - click "read in browser" or "read more."

Happy Stampin’!

THE POPPIES ANGLE - A FREE TUTORIAL


Hello, Stampers!
   I've created a photo tutorial for cutting the DSP angle for the above card front my January stamp camp, mostly because I am somewhat math-challenged and became frustrated trying to create this card using strictly measurements.  Just click below for the step-by-step.
    I hope you find it helpful.  If you would like a printable version, just contact me or leave a comment!  Products below.


Happy Stampin’!
