Playing Catch-Up Stamping Style

November 18, 2020 By

This past week or so I’ve been plowing through my “to do” cupboard, attacking Project Kits etc that I’ve purchased but never assembled.  That is no longer the situation.  Kit are completed and ready for YOU!  My goal was to have the projects finished in time for my Getting Ready for Christmas Sale which will be December 5th, 10-3, at my home in Avimor, Boise ID.  That goal has…

Designer Series Paper Wreath – Update

November 12, 2020 By

I finally got out into the ‘real world’ and purchased the glittery plastic snowflake that I wanted for the center of my snowflake wreath that I share a few days ago.  Now it looks complete.     I’ll be switching it out after Thanksgiving for this final wreath which is my favorite because of the little banner.  You can find the banner on p. 27 of Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday…

I Love a Challenge

October 29, 2020 By

I was speaking to a friend on the phone yesterday and during our conversation she mentioned a friend of hers who was about to experience an amazing event:  her official adoption, as an adult.  It gives me goose bumps again just to write those awesome words.  I was asked if I might have an appropriate card–like a congratulations card or something similar.  Also….she likes butterflies.  Well, I didn’t have…

Simple Card Layout

October 27, 2020 By

Sometimes your life can be made easier by having a go-to card layout that is mega flexible.  And your imagination is the only limit as to what you create.  Check out these two cards.     Do you see any similarities?  Actually there are many. For both cards: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ card front, either Whisper White or Very Vanilla 5-1/5″ x 4″ layer, same color as the card front,…

Blythe’s Christmas Card Buffet Offerings

October 21, 2020 By

At last!!! At last I get to share my upcoming Christmas Card Buffet offerings.  What on earth is a Card Buffet?  It is definitely not a dining feast.  Rather……it’s a card making feast. I create six sample cards, post them here on my blog, and you select which combination of the six cards you’d like to make.  This gives you a little jump start on this year’s holiday cards.…

My Second Poinsettia Petals Z-Fold Card

October 21, 2020 By

I wasn’t quite thrilled with my choice of the Garden Green card stock for yesterday’s mystery card.  The other green used in the Designer Series Paper pack was Old Olive and that’s the one I chose to use for my second card.   First card:   Second card:   Measurements are the same as those listed in yesterday’s post.  I did manage to position my greeting down a bit…

Poinsettia Petals Mystery Stamping Card

October 20, 2020 By

On Monday I participated in a Mystery Stamping FB Live opportunity and made a pretty satisfactory Poinsettia Petal Mystery Stamping card.   When I create a card using Designer Series Paper (DSP) I check the back of the pack to determine the coordinating card stock colors.  For this card I used Garden Green – card stock and Classic Ink stamp pad Bumblebee – card stock and Classic Ink stamp…

PEACE Christmas Card

September 21, 2020 By

That this has been a crazy unpredictable 2020 is an understatement.  When I saw this card, created by Denise MacCabe from New South Wales, Australia, I knew I had to recreate it.  First off, my major in college was geography and I’m a softy when it comes to anything map/globe related.  Secondly, the word PEACE on the card front just said it all.  Take a deep breath and focus…
