Thursday, March 26, 2015

Well there is a first time for everything....can you believe it I am doing a Throw Back Thursday!  Kinda fun!  This stamp set is retired...it's called Words by Wanda, my friend Carol shared it with me to use at my Senior Card Class earlier this month.  It ended up being one of the favorite cards from class!  If your 55 or better please join us, class is at the Sumner Senior Center generally the 2nd Friday of each month.  We made 3 nice cards, class is $6.00 bring a glue stick everything else is provided!  Contact the Sumner Senior Center to register at (253) 863-2910.  Our next class is Friday 4/10, hurry last time I checked it was almost full!


While Words for Wanda is no longer available to order Stampin' Up! released this adorable same style photopolymer stamp set called Just Kidding earlier this month!  The set is $15.95 and could easily fill in on the card above!

Flamingo Lingo and Irresistibly Yours DSP

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

The flamingo's have landed!  LOL!  My studio is full of them waiting to go to their new homes with those attending Ronald McDonald Class later this week!

I am really excited about this class we have lots of good door prizes, we raised $69.00 for the Ronald McDonald Charity AND we are teaming up with a local book club to make some children's birthday cards that will be donated to the Orting Food Bank.  YEAH US....a fun class, door prizes and helping 2 great charities! 


I teamed the stamp set up with all sorts of Sale-A-Brations products for our class! We'll be doing a few clever fun cuts and fun folds, dusting off the brayer and having a stampin' good time!

Here is a sneak peak of 1 of the projects we'll be creating showcasing that beautiful Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Brations promotion!  I used the brayer to get the strawberry slush ink on it and then a tissue to wipe off the ink on the embossed part of the paper.  STINKING CUTE! 




I am really going to miss Strawberry Slush when it retires in May....my next order is going to be stocking up on cardstock and making sure I have a reinker for each of the 2013-2015 in-colors before the are no longer available.  I love to stock up on things like this during Sale-A-Brations so I can get something free....and I am thinking right now I need some more of the Irresistibly Yours DPS because I have used just about every scrap of the pack I got earlier this year!

Card Recipe:
 Stamp Set:  Flamingo Lingo
Ink:  Strawberry Slush
Card Stock:  Strawberry Slush, Whisper White, Irresistibly Yours DSP
Misc:  Brayer, dimensionals, strawberry slush stretch ribbon (retired), thick white bakers twine (leftover from a past pumpkin kit) and Ornate Tag Topper Punch

I'll be back later in the week to talk more about the Food Bank Service Project!  If your not attending class no worries you'll still have a chance to help with this next month and most likely through out the year!

Indescribable Gift Clear Stamp Set and Color Blocking

Monday, March 23, 2015


I made this beautiful card at my upline's meeting a few weeks ago.  We were looking for new ideas for coloring since the blendies aren't available so this one was made totally with Stampin' Up! markers!  I love how it turned out!  This is the stamp set we used:

http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=138575&demoid=21860


It's featured in the Occasions Catalog!  How it was created.  We took a piece of cardstock and traced around the image with a black marker......once that was done we colored the traced section in with the black marker!  Then we colored the image with markers!  After that we used the cardstock as a guide to make the squiggly lines and dots!  If your attend the Ronald McDonald Fundraiser class later this week please ask to see this card you'll love how 2 layers of cardstock can look so 3D!

Paper Pumpkin March 2015

Saturday, March 21, 2015



I am not sure how I can explain how much fun it is each month to open my mailbox and get my monthly Paper Pumpkin!  The u-tube above (click on the Flying Stamper to view the video) is the March kit which arrived earlier this week...I am saving mine to complete with my grandson's later this month.

It is a true pleasure to get a project that is all cut and prepared for me each month...in addition I love the stamps.  I mean where can you get a project, stamps and ink for $20 (plus tax no shipping)...that is cheaper then most classes around our area AND you have the stamp set to use later.  Right now there is an uber good special too....$5 off a 3 month subscription.  The special is good for new or current subscriber's!  In addition you also get to choose a Sale-A-Brations item and you can use your BIRTHDAY COUPON (if you have a birthday in March) OR your catalog coupon with this special. SCORE!  Contact me to order....but hurry Sale-A-Brations and the $5 off special end 3/31/2015.

Watercoloring with Blender Pens – A Happy Thing Stamp Set

Friday, March 20, 2015


Hi Everyone!  I am sorry I took a little unscheduled blog break...it wasn't planned but a few things (some good, some bad) came up and I just got behind the 8 ball and now it's catch up time.  The good things were my daughter and grandson's came to visit us for 5 days and when they are here I really try to spend quality time with them...they live in Alaska now and our visit's are super precious to me.  We got lots of stamping and scrapbooking done!

The bad thing is I fell on my first bike ride of the season 2 weeks ago...besides being super embarrassing it's been a pain healing up for it.  Thankfully I didn't break anything!  I think it was a message from God telling me to "slow down" a bit!  So I've been trying to listen to that message and not burn the midnight oil so much!  

So I have a ton to tell and share...will do my best to try and get all the scoop out in the next few days.  First off a reminder that the fabulous Sale-A-brations promotion ends very soon....3/31/2015.  Stampin' Up! has added some new products besides those in the Sale-A-Brations catalog.....and at this time ALL Sale-A-Brations items are while supplies last.   Click HERE and HERE for additional items being offered!

Sadly Stampin' Up! has discontinued the Blendabilitie's marker line due to manufacturing problems. A few of you experienced this...broken tips, dry marker or a cap that didn't fit right.

Stampin' Up! has been working with the manufacturer to find a solution, but the manufacturer has been unable to correct the problem in a manner that would meet their high quality standards.  Therefore, Stampin' Up! will no long carry them.  If you have a set on back order it will be replaced with another item.....I think I have reached out to everyone that had them on back order but if I missed you please let me know so we can get something else ordered to replace them.  Also please check your markers to be sure you don't have any issues.

While the blendie's are no longer available  we do offer many other ways to color our projects.....aqua painters, blender pens, markers, reinkers ect. Speaking of of that look at this great U-TUBE showcasing blender pens!  If your getting this post via email click on the Flying Stamper to view the video!


Have a wonderful wkend and I will chat with you tomorrow!
