RemARKably Created Sale-A-Brations 2018 Blog Hop

I am so happy to be part of the RemARKably Created Sale-A-Brations 2018 Blog Hop.  I hope you are enjoying your hop and have come from Libby Dison's Blog.   For my card I chose the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp set.  This set is Stampin' UP!'s new Distinktive stamps that lays down the ink at different ways to give the finished image more depth.  My card is done in Always Artichoke and Whisper White with a hint of gold. 
I stamped my flower bouquet onto a piece of Vellum Cardstock and colored the back with Stampin' Markers.  The color didn't pop until I back the image with a scrap of Whisper White.  I fussy cut it out to add to the front of my card.
Adding a frame made from our Gold Foil Paper and die cut with Layering Squares Framelits gave this a little pop of gold and I filled my shaker box with seed beads and sequins from my stash along with gold sequins from our Sequin Trim.  I embossed the "Enjoy today" using Gold Embossing Powder directly onto the Whisper White Mat. 
I stamped the floral image in Always Artichoke and left the inside blank allowing the card to be customized when I wanted to use it.
Thanks for stopping in and be sure to continue the hop on to Jillian Selwood's blog, you can follow her link or jump around using the list of blogs below.  Either way I am sure you will be delighted with the AWESOME creations.  Until next time be kind and Do One Thing TODAY that Makes YOU Happy!!!

Quick Share

Hi all
Today is my Wednesday card group and I wanted to share one of the cards we will be doing.  I have to thank Mary Brown for the inspiration.  Sorry in advance for the picture quality, my digital camera went to heaven just before I took this picture.

Colors are Cajun Craze for base, Very Vanilla for mat and I used Basic Black, Crushed Curry and Island Indigo for the leaves ( a small gold glimmer leaf is in the center)  The scallop edge is done with the doily edge die from Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies.  The leaves were done with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and the front sentiment from Painted Harvest and inside was stamped with a sentiment from Count my Blessings using Basic Black Ink.  Talk about using the craft room HA HA.  Great layout for any season or reason.  Oh I topped it off with a bow made from the Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon.  Easy Peasy! 
Almost forgot...the buy 3 get 1 free Designer Series Paper sale is still in effect until the end of the month.  This is on selected items only so check my WEBSITE to see what DSP is included.
Until next time....

Holiday Catalog and share.

Wow, September has been a whirlwind....  This is the height of hurricane season for us here in Florida, after years of dodging the bullet we were hit head on by Irma.   The eye passed over us about 9 pm Sunday night.  I have never experience a cat 3 hurricane and am not in any hurry to experience another one.  Thankfully we had plenty of time to get our shutters up and prepare as best we could.  We were very lucky, we have no major damage, all of our structures are still standing no flooding.  We lost the most of the on our pool enclose.  A small wooden fence blown down, most of our fruit trees were uprooted and some shingles off our roof.  We did have to go without power for more than a week but all in all we are no worse for wear.  My chickens all survived and their coop withstood the winds.  We are almost back to normal (still a little cleaning up to do).  But I truly am happy to have time to get back to sharing with all of you.  


The Holiday Catalog is now live.  If you don't have a regular demo and would like a paper copy, give me a shout and I will get one to you.  You can always check it out on my site.


Merry Patterns Host Promotion...

Hosting a holiday catalog event is always fun—and we’ve just sweetened the deal with our exciting Merry Patterns Host Promotion. Host a party with $300 USD/$375 CAD in sales by October 31, you'll earn the FREE Merry Patterns Stamp Set.  This set is not found in any catalog and was designed just for our Special Host.  Contact me today to schedule you party.  All the details here. 

Spooky Cat Share

I wanted to share one of the cards we did at our Wednesday Get together at Seminole Gardens.  The ladies love love love meeting to learn new techniques, get hands on with new products and have fun with friends old and new.  This class is open to the public, if you are in the area and interested, contact me for more information.
Spooky Cat........

This card was done using products from the Spooky Night Suite  (page 52 - 53) in the holiday Catalog.  We used Pumpkin Pie Card stock for the base.  Added a little dimension by sponging the front with the Brick mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Pumpkin Pie Ink.  We also used Spooky Night Designer Series paper and a touch of Basic Black & Very Vanilla.  I must say I used a tad of our Black Glimmer Paper which is retired (my bad).  The Cat Punch (which is bundled with Spooky Cat stamp set) and the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch was used to add a bit of interest.  We also used Layering Ovals Framelits to make the frame.  I added a few our our new Black Rhinestone Jewels.  It was a fun simple card and the lay out could be used for a variety of card types.

Well that's all for now, have a great weekend and remember to be kind, you never know what burdens someone else may be carrying and a smile and kind word can go a long way .

New technique

The Polished Stone Technique is all over the stamping community.  It's easy to do with a WOW factor.  The best part is no two projects come out the same.    My Wednesday class ladies loved it.

This technique uses Re-Inkers, Glossy Paper, alcohol and a cotton swab.  I used the Oh So Eclectic/Eclectic Layer Bundle to finish the card front.

Take the cotton ball and add a small amount of alcohol to center.  Add drops of ink, around the center (I used Wisteria Wonder & Lemon Lime Twish) to the cotton ball the lightly daub onto the glossy paper. Take a second cotton ball to daub off any excess ink and let dry.  Be careful not to over do since the alcohol will cause the ink to spread and your colors will become muddled.

Have a great weekend and remember to Do One Thing Today that Makes YOU Happy!
