A Work Of Art by Stampin Up

Hey, what's up....

I have been so busy, but not sure whats so busy that I can do a post once in a while. 
What do you think?

I used the 'Work of Art' stamp set from
Stampin Up.

Here is what I came up with.

I was following a bunch of Stampin Up tutorials that shows how to make a flower
using A Work of Art stamp set.
But as I was stamping a butterfly came into view. 

So a great big
'Thank you'
goes out to all the great 
Independent Demonstrators for Stampin Up
for the great tutorials on how to make a flower.

Here is another one I just put together.

Oh, I used the 214 - 2016 in colors by 
Stampin Up for these cards.
There are so many beautiful colors by Stampin up that
just about any color combinations would look great.

I am working on setting up an overhead
camera so I can maybe do some 
video tutorials
I will try to post a little more often,
so you can see what I am up to...

Hugs to you all,

It's really been since January that I posted something on here?
oops, sorry...
thank you for hanging around to see if I get back in to blogging and all that good stuff...
My mojo is coming back, so that is a wonderful thing...

Yesterday, I made a cute fire truck
the kit is an kit...
it's from the

I got carried away with the bling...what do you think?
I just love how it turned out...
I think I will be donating it to the local volunteer fire department
Holbrook volunteer Fire Department.
The fire department has a long wall of fire trucks that was 
donated by a previous volunteer.
I think that's the best place for it, maybe...
Maybe I might have to keep it or give it to my 
dad Jim. he was a volunteer fireman for many years.
So,  I might give it to him? we will see
I will try to let you know who got this darling fire truck.
OH, and thank god for Mary and Leo,
it was a bit tricky to put together, but they made is so 
much easier by their great video tutorials...
What a great resources that is for us paper craft'ers.

So I bet you want to see more of what I have been doing...

This next one is a horrible picture but you can see I used the

I used some of the DSP from Stampin Up
what great colors to put together.
I also used some background stamps I have.
So fun huh... love all the colors and how they go together so well...

Next, a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers and penny slider card
to make this darling interactive card.

very cute...I love'd it so much I had a couple of my crafter's make a set of 2 during
one of my workshops.
I host workshops in my home...I have a big craft room devoted to my crafting...
it's such a fun part of the only takes up about 
25% of the house...heehee and I love it...

Here is another card I made using the Banner Banter stamp set and the Banner Punch
both from Stampin Up. Also from Stampin Up the Petite Petals stamp set and punch.
I just love the punch and stamp sets by Stampin Up...they are great...

The edge of the card is a Braided Card I got the technique from
she is a cool Stampin Up Independent Demonstrator

Next is some cards I made using the

this is a great stamp, I have used it on so many cards
lately. It's so fun...
What do you think? cool huh...
Here is a close up of the father's day card...

Just perfect...
The tags on each side of the sentiment uses
the Banner Punch from Stampin Up...
It's so easy to make the flag look.

Ok, ready for more?

Here is the front of the Graduation announcements I did for my son's
High School Graduation

I made 40 of these, that was quite the task...
it took me a long time to finish and send them out...
but they did go out a week before the graduation.
As they were an announcement not an invitation.
So proper edicite was used in sending these cute announcements...
the inside is so cute... It has a picture of him and the information.
We made a QR code and printed them on a clear sticker paper,
it's link to his blog.
The blog has a link to PayPal to give a gift of money...
Funny, huh...
Some day I will try to post the inside too..

Well, off to make some more fun projects...
I will try to post more often...

Way Too Long...

So So Sorry,
it's been like forever since my last post...
I know right...
well here is a little something for you
 to see what I have been so busy with and can't post to my blog...heehee

I checked out the  SVGCuts forum and found that ATC swaps are still alive and well
so I know I loved participating in the past so I thought it might get my mojo back
if I join this next swap...
ATC Swap Feb 2014
Valentines Day Theme

Here is what I made to send to all my peps...

I made an envelope for each card...using my envelop punch board
I got for Christmas from my son...

there were enough people to swap with, 
(thanks to our coordinator UNIKMO, she has really done a great job)
we had 3 groups to trade with...I was on 1 of the 3
and the group I was with was international trading... :) 
oh I can hardly wait to see all the fun ATC's we get...

I have received a few so far...and mine were sent out over the weekend...

well just a little something to say 'Hi'...I miss you bunches...
but I am getting my crafty mojo back
doing things I love most...

Hope you have a great time checking out my blog...
