Sheltering Tree ~ Tick Tock - SAB ends on Tuesday

One of my favorite stamp sets in the Occasions catalog is Sheltering Tree. I saw this cute card on Pinterest and this is a total case from Heather Cooper! Thanks Heather love your card.

I showed this to one of my friends and she asked me how did I make the cute tag so I thought I would share that with you too.  I used the Mosaic punch but notice I only put it in one side so you can make it any length you want too. 

Did you notice the stamp set I will be working on next?  The first person that comments on that set on my blog will get a card in the mail this week!

Card Making Challenge for YOU!

You may have seen the card I made yesterday for a family member and while making samples for my April classes, when I finished this is what I had accumulated on my desk.

So I started thinking I should be able to do something with all those scrap pieces of this and that. So with that self challenge I went to work on making a card using those scraps.  On this self challenge I was so proud because I did not once look at Pinterest.  :)

So I thought I would issue a challenge to you! When you are making a card using Stampin' UP! products, look at your left over scraps and see what you come up with. Send me an email wagstamps@yahoo.com with your before and after picture and I will share it on my blog.  I can't wait to see what you created.

Happy Birthday Cards

For the month of April I will be featuring birthday cards with my friends for my classes and clubs and other events.  So for a change I am working in advance on my samples.  I have had this beautiful vellum paper since June and I just now I am using it.......... goodness knows I waited long enough.  Do you do that, buy stuff that you love and never use it?  I think we all do that a little.  I love the softness of this card but simple.  Let me know if you want to book a party either in your home if you are in my area or a catalog party if you live outside my area.

Check out my class schedule for April at the top of my blog.

Stamping in the courtyard

Thursday I brought my little stamp studio outside. I was having lunch in the courtyard and was enjoying my surroundings so much I thought I would set up a card table and prep for my class for this weekend at the Salvation Army.

This is my desktop calendar class.  It is made using one 8.5 x11 black card stock for the base, scored at 5.5. For this project I used the Sheltering Tree stamp set item #137163 $24.95

1st quarter

2nd quarter

3rd quarter

4th quarter

This is a view with the one whole side before folded.

To hold the calendar in place, I cut a piece of basic black card stock 1 3/4 x 5 then scored 1 inch from each end so I could slip it between the black and the next sheet of card stock.

  When you glue down the color piece on the black piece, leave a space at the bottom with no glue so you can slip the extra black strip between the pieces.  I made this little diagram below on MDS.

 Here is my portable stamp studio alfresco!  See my office assistant walking away from the camera?
It was a beautiful day and so relaxing to stamp outside.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.  Nine (9) more days of the Stampin' UP! SAB promotion, let me know if you want to order.

Happy Easter Card - Indescribable Gift

Today at stamp club we made this Easter card that I want to share with you. This is one of my favorite Easter stamp sets.  I love the verses, "Sharing in the JOY of His indescribable GIFT. Easter is such an important part of my life, so if gives me great pleasure to share this card with you.

This is a book mark Easter card using the spotlight technique. I have a confession to make, I do not do coloring with markers well.  There I said it. So with this technique you only have to color in a small amount.  teeheee.  (My secret reason for using this technique.) 

You just stamp the image twice on two pieces of whisper white card stock and punch out the middle of one of your images on one with a  2" circle punch and cut out a coordinating circle with the circle framelits. After coloring in the small piece then add the coordinating colored circle then arrange both pieces on top of the larger image so that the two images match up and it looks seamless. 

This view shows the inside of the card along with the bookmark on the end.

This view is with the bookmark closed inside the card.

This is the back of the card when it is open.

Measurements for the full card is 5-1/2 x 10-11/16
Score at 4-1/4 and 8-1/2
Punch with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch at the 8.50 score mark and then perforate on the 8.50 score mark to make your book mark. I think this is a great Easter card to send to someone and they can use the book mark for their bible. 

I hope you like this card as much as my stamp club did today.  Thanks for stopping by.

SAB Product of the week- Samples

This is from the Stampin' UP! website- such cute samples and I just had to share with you.

Sale-A-Bration Product of the Week-Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack
Sale-A-Bration is more than just our biggest sales event of the year, it’s also the perfect time to introduce you to some of our newest products! We thought there was no better way to do that than by showing you just a few of the possibilities you can make with these fantastic new products. So without further adieu, we want to introduce you to this week’s Sale-A-Bration product of the week—the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack.

Sheer perfection is spelled v-e-l-l-u-m. This 6" x 6" stack of translucent vellum paper, in 12 different designs (2 sheets per design), is perfectly sized for cards—no measuring or cutting needed! And since many of the designs are line art or brush stroke, it’s also perfect for coloring or even just showing off a pop of color underneath. The gorgeous designs coordinate with Nature’s Perfection Stamp Set (Item 139097 [w])—another bonus Sale-A-Bration product only available through March 31!

We want to thank our talented artists, Patty Bennett and Sharlene Meyer. Show us what you have made with the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack by using #sabproductoftheweek.
