Builder Wheel card

Hello friends. Welcome back. Today you are looking at Mary's card. Yes, this was taken from the Holiday Mini. I am so glad she chose to do this card. So many of our guests had not yet experienced the builder wheels. Many were intimidated but took the plunge and did it. They were pleasantly surprised how easy it is to push those wheels and end with a beautiful card. The ink on the cartridge was black and then the images were colored in with an aqua painter brush using classic ink pads. Here is your shopping list.

Stamp Set: Builder wheels Little Cardinal, Little Christmas and Little Ornaments. $4.50 each
Paper: Real Red, Marine Mist, Garden Green $6.95 each; Watercolor paper $6.95
Ink: Black refill $2.95; Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Marine Mist $6.95 each
Accessories: jumbo wheel black cartridge $7.50; Aqua Brush $16.95; jumbo wheel handle $5.95; Big Shot $99.95; Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder $7.95; Red Grograin Ribbon $4.95

I'm still trying to figure out what happened to that pretty blue card that went missing. Has anyone seen it? I guess I will have to go back to the lab (camera) and see what I can do. I'll figure something out. So stay tuned. Have a blessed week end.

World Card Day at the Hampton Inn

Hello friends, This is my display I had at the Hampton. I need to update it.
This is the other side of the room. We loved stamping at the Hampton Inn.
See the two little girls. They were our greeters, answered questions and took class fees. They were awesome and hard workers too. We plan to have more functions at the Hampton. We were treated very nicely. Thank you ladies at the lobby desk.

World Card Day October 2, 2010

Hello friends, thank you for stopping by. You are looking at a photo of our day at the Hampton Inn. It was a wonderful day. We met new ladies and rekindled old friendships. The cards we created were outstanding. I will show them to you over the next few days. We raffled a basket of Stamping goodies. The winner, Diane was so shocked she won and a very happy person once she realized it was all hers and she could take it all home. We donated stamping stuff, cards, toys and personal care items to children in Haiti. One of our gals was going to be going to Haiti as a ministry.

Here is our group-Inkyfingers. See all the smiles. I told you it was a wonderful day.

Because I Care

Hello friends, I'm showing another Stamp Camp card today. I had fun creating this card. The card stock is from the In Color collection. Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz go so well together. I used Black Stazon Ink to stamp the hydrangea and then used the Perfect Plum marker to outline the petals and I picked up extra color with a blender pen to darken some of the petals. Of course using glossy white card stock made the entire coloring process go very easily. The stamp set is one you can choose from when you hostess a workshop and your net sales total $150. The Because I Care stamp set can be seen on page 11. Do you live in my area? I am willing to be your demonstrator when you book a workshop with me. I have a 100 mile radius I can drive to. Contact me and we can set the date. Stay tuned for the Christmas cards we made at the World Card Day event. Thank you for visiting. God bless you.

Friends Are Flowers That Never Fade

This is one of the Stamp Camp cards we made. I love this color combination so much, I used it again. The lay out is slightly different. This stamp set is becoming a favorite of mine. I really like all the embossing folders Stampin' Up sells. This one is called Perfect Polka Dots and is on page 214.

Birthday Owl

Hello stampers, Sorry for my absence. I've been super busy. My family celebrated birthdays two week ends in a row. I went to an apple festival. I held a stamp camp and I was a demonstrator at out World Card Day event. Plus I am currently involved in two bible studies. I'll share more over time. Today I want to show another owl card. I gave this one to fabulous son #2. This layout is similar to the other card I made for fabulous son #1. I used the same products as the previous card. I am having so much fun with the Owl punch. You can find it on page 201 of the Idea Book and Catalog 2010.

Owl In a Tree

I can't stop making owl cards. Here is another one. I placed the card in one of my artificial trees for the photo. It looks so cute hiding in the tree. Can you see that I used the scallop circle punch to make part of the tree for the owl. I have another card idea in my head right now. If the card idea works, I'll be sure to show it to you.
