I am loving these new stamps, they are clear so you can see
right where to put them on your cards.


Moon Lake Stamp set

These cards were made from the stamp set "Moon Lake" found in the Occasion's catalog 2015. I think they make great guy cards.
I used the blendabilities  Old Olive  and the brown in the skin tone ( found on page 212 of the current catalog) to color them.


I stamped four times with the #2 stamp.

Lotus Blossom ( sale-a-bration ) a free stamp set

It's that time of the year again and it's all about FREE products. This year Stampin'Up has three fabulous months to earn stamp sets and a variety of SU items. I made this card using one of the free sets. I love, love this set. All this starts on January 6 and ends on March 31. With every $50 you spend during this time you earn products.

SAB brochure

Inks: Blackberry Bliss, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Wild Wasabi and Mossy Meadow.

Paper: Whisper White and Blackberry Bliss.

Ribbon: Blackberry Bliss

Blackberry Bliss, 8 1/2" X 4 1/4" and a second piece 2 3/4" X 4 1/4"
Whisper White, two pieces at 5 1/4" X 4" and 2 1/2" X 4"

Using the Blackberry Bliss ink and the Something Lacy stamp, stamp on the 5 1/4" X 4" piece of card stock. This stamp is great for making backgrounds.
When you get your stamp set you will see the flower comes in three pieces and is numbered showing you which one to stamp first. You start with the darkest color first Blackberry Bliss, then use the wisteria Wonder and last I used Perfect Plum. I stamped off once with the Perfect Plum to get a lighter color. Stamp your stem and your sentiment. Add your ribbon and glue the card together. See picture.


One sheet Wonder Using "Work of Art " stamp set

One Sheet wonder using "Work Of Art stamp set"
Here are the measurements and supplies for making
 8 of these cards out of one sheet of stamped paper.

Paper Sizes: Base card Wild Wasabi, 4 sheets, cut in half 4-1/4″ x 11″ score at 5 1/2"
Stamp Whisper White: cut 8 pieces 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″
 Cut the whisper white card stock in half at 4 1/4" and then cut those two strips into four 2-3/4″ pieces total of 8 pieces.
Blackberry Bliss: 1/2″ x 4-1/4″ cut 8

(Actually when I made these 8 cards I cut the white piece of card stock first and then stamped it. It's just as easy and as fast than when stamping the whole sheet first.)

Inks:  Blackberry Bliss, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi
I used the extra large oval punch.
Here is a link to see the video on how to make this card.



One Sheet Wonder Method

One Sheet Wonder 
Making your own patterned paper
Patty-Trish Hargrove 989-808-4192

When I need several cards and I am short on time I use the a one Sheet Wonder Method. I love stamping but I also love cards that are quick and easy to make. The next time you need to make a lot of cards Try this technique. You can make a stack of cards in no time. For starters I just used one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Whisper White card. 
First I stamped the leaves in Wild Wasabi (on some I stamped off first ) then I stamped the watercolor image set in Crushed Curry. Then over that image I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss, and finally filled it all in with Blackberry Bliss acorns. I used a 1/2″ X 4 1/4" wide strip of Blackberry Bliss card stock across the top of the stamped paper. Add your greeting, punch it out & pop up with the SU dimensionals and you’re done!
I love making my own patterned paper, give it a try you will love it too. It is so much fun.
