What makes photopolymer stamps so great?

They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
Can you say sticky? These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time.
They are inexpensive—you get a lot of images for the price!

Sketched B-day Spinner Card - FMS98

SPINNER CARDS. . . . . .Oh what fun they are!!  

After seeing Shelli demonstrate a few spinner cards at Convention, I vowed to use that technique at a future club meeting.  Well, there is no time like the present right?!?!?!     

Here is my CASed copy of Shelli's Card she made at Convention.  
Now I LOVE this card, but I already have a "masculine card" for my August Classes, so I made this next card for my Club members to create.  This is also my take on the Sketch Challenge presented by Freshly Made Sketches.    Hope you like it! 


My kids had a ball testing out the cards -- nice to know I can impress my 9, 7 and 3 year old!  LOL

Too Kind - Thinlit Card

FINALLY got my New Label Card Thinlit Die (#133479) and Circle Card Thinlit Die (#133480) from "Mr. Brown".   These Dies are AMAZING and have so many possibilities from simple to more detailed cards.   I made a simple Bermuda Bay card for my August classes!  

I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig (#101049) to stamp the flowers.   This was honestly my first time using the tool, and I LOVE IT!!!  I am feeling pretty embarrassed for not pulling it out before now. . . . I LOVE my two-step stamps and always felt that I was "good enough" to line them up on my own.  This tool allows for very little error (totally worth the $11.95) and will be on hand for future projects.   :)

Halloween Bash STS#1

Saw this Sketch Challenge from Seize the Sketch today and had to play along!  :)   I knew I was going to go for my Washi Tape, it was just a matter of deciding which "set" and theme I wanted to use.    I finally decided on a Halloween theme -- Was lucky to win the Halloween Bash stamp set during a Prize Patrol at Convention this year.  

Hope you like my take on the sketch challenge!

Wetlands - Masculine Card

I am so inspired by all the Creative Stampin Up! Demonstrators I was able to meet at Convention.  When I saw the "Wetlands" stamp set in the in 2013-2014 Annual Catalog I didn't really think it was "my cup of tea" and didn't put it on my wish list.   Well, it was one of the first items on my order after I returned from Convention.   

The first card below is a CASe from Denise Schaller from Hebron, CT and will be made at my August Classes.   I sometimes "struggle" with masculine cards and never have any on hand when one is needed.    Well, NO MORE thanks to the Wetlands stamp set!!    

Stampin Up! Products:
Stamps:  Wetlands and Woodgrain Background
Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Early Espresso, Old Olive, Crushed Curry
Accessories:  Linen Thread, Sponge Dauber, Markers, Circle Punch

Below are the Swaps I received from Convention this year . . .  I have given credit to those who made the cards if their information was given to me.  

 Happy Stamping!

Joyful Christmas CASed

A fellow RemARKable Stamper (Michele Reynolds) shared her version of this card with our group and I FELL IN LOVE and HAD to make it!!   Decided that I wanted to share with all my wonderful Stampin Ladies so this is one of my August class samples as well!! :)     

One of my new favorite embellishments from the Holiday Catalog are the Frosted Finished Embellishments (#132150; $6.95 for 12).   I thought they would really finish off my card, so I put covered it with Versamark, sprinkled some Gold Embossing Powder over it and heat set.   Below is the side-by-side comparison.  

Stamped and embossed the Poinsettia twice.  Cut one full-size and the second smaller and layered with dimensionals.
