Peaceful Season


This is one of those really simple but stunning cards that are great for mass producing.


I started by embossing the Whisper White layer with the Northern Flurries embossing folder. Then I spritzed it with champagne mist shimmer spray. After drying, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red, added some rhinestone jewels and layered it on a Real Red base. Super Easy!

Punch Potpourri Book Mark


We made this pretty little bookmark at stamp camp this month. It slips over the edge of the page you are wanting to mark, as shown below. It makes a lovely little added touch when giving a book as a gift. These are really very simple to make. Start with a square piece of card stock (this one is 4 inches). Fold the top corners in to the center to form a triangle that meets about halfway down the square of card stock. Then cover the folds with a piece of dsp to secure the corner. Decorate!

Royal Blog Tour



You may have noticed the Royal Blog Tour Logo in my sidebar. I thought I would give a little explanation of what it is all about. A blog tour is an event where several bloggers link from one blog to the next for a fun day or week of blogging. There is usually some sort of common theme for the event.


This particular blog tour is tons of fun because there are spots for 72 blogs. The tour is divided into castles and then several blogs are linked under each honorary queen. Each blog will highlight a specific set from the current catalog and will share several projects made with each set.


You can see the possibility for a lot of inspiration. Another fabulous aspect of this tour is that there are a lot of blogs and many individual blogs will be offering BLOG CANDY! If those aspects of the tour aren’t enough to get you motivated to join in the fun, there is also a Royal Giveaway that is a very nice prize. You’ll need to gather clues and fill out an entry form to be in the Grand Prize drawing where the winner may choose either a Big Shot or My Digital Studio software or $100 in Stampin’ Up merchandise.


I thought that might get your attention, so be sure to visit my blog November 5-8 to join the fun on the Royal Blog Tour!

Angelic Joy


I made this card for a challenge and then didn’t get it posted in time. Oh well! I love it so much I think I’ll use it for Stamp a Stack next month. I can never get a good picture of the sparkly stuff, but this card is very sparkly. I used the Champagne Mist shimmer spray. Even the ribbon is sparkly which is seam binding ribbon that has been sprayed and scrunched to shape.

Host a Stamp Camp, Keep the Stamps!



I have created a scaled down version of the Stamp a Stack Stamp Camp for those hostesses who want to host a smaller group.


For this camp you only need 5 participants (or card sets). You will choose one card style and each card set will consist of 25 cards of the same style for $25. As hostess you can choose one of the two cards shown for your stamp camp and you will get to keep the corresponding products. You can add additional outside orders to your stamp camp order and if you reach minimum sales, will earn hostess benefits as well. Additional card sets do not count as outside orders.


If you choose the card pictured above and have pre-orders for a minimum of 5 card sets, you will earn the following items.
