Exciting news! The Reservation for the Stamparatus is now open AND ALL reservations will be filled. Isn’t that great news!!
You will want one:
– if you have a 2 step or 3 step stamp set and want the images lined up well.
– if you would like to re-stamp an image that doesn’t come out well.
– if you have multiple cards to make and would like them the same each time.
I think it is a necessary tool for any stamper!

Another Beachy Little Christmas card for you. This was one of the earlier cards I made with this set.
I have watercoloured the images with the pencils.
I will be honest, while I am happy with the colouring, it is just missing something. There is no pizzazz! No WOW! I think the sentiment is lost. While I did layer the sentiment on Silver Glimmer Paper, it is still not happening. Maybe I need to redo it? Maybe even a little sponging around the edges? What are your thoughts?
I thought I would show you this card anyway.
Thanks for stopping by.

That spare change will be very handy coming up to Christmas.

I forgot to show you some Thank You cards I have made recently for customers and team members. These are all little 10cmx10cm (4″x4″) cards. I like making these size cards.
This first one uses the Vertical Greetings set. I don’t use this set nearly as much as I should. It is so cute. I coloured the stamps with the markers to get the different colours. One heart version was in Sweet Sugarplum and the other heart version was in Flirty Flamingo. A little Linen Thread bow finished them off. These cards where made for my customers a couple of months ago. Yes it has taken this long to show you.
This next little cutie card using the Baby Bear stamp set was for some of my team members for an online team event we had last month. I wanted to send out a “Thanks” for them sharing in the Facebook group event.
Side Note: Hey! Have you considered joining Stampin’ Up!?? Not just for the discount (although that’s great!) but for all the team fun and the sharing and the creating and the …. Really, so many reasons why!
Let me know if you would like more information or stop by my page on this blog for “join my team”. See the link at the top of my blog.
This Thank You card was for a challenge on my Facebook page I held last month to share a card that my readers have made and I sent out a prize at random. The card was made up with some “bits” I had on my desk from another project. They come in handy sometimes. This one was using Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.
Mmm! I am noticing a pink theme here (sorry Lynda). Unintentional I assure you. 🙂
Have a great day and for all my US blog readers wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the special celebrations. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia but I think it’s great to take some time and be Thankful for all that we have.
For this week’s WATCH IT WEDNESDAY #12 I came across this video from Stampin’ Up! using the 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. There are a number of these in the catalogue along with the regular Embossing Folders.
There are a couple of tips to remember when using the 3D ones that I thought it might be good to share this with you to help you get a deeper, crisper impression on your card. I hope you find this helpful.
I don’t know about you but I always forget to mist my card when I am using these folders.
Now this video used the lovely Layered Leaves but this week two of the 3D folders are on special for Extravaganza week. These are the Cable Knit and the Hexagons 3D.
The Cable Knit folder is 30% off this week at $11.90. See that in store->HERE.

Well, you can make any colour you like!
You might have seen you can colour any embellishment like the Rhinestones and Pearls or ribbon with the Blends BUT I had a play with something else the other day. Did you know you can colour the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the Stampin’ Blends. Now before you rush off and try it there are a couple of important notes.
** Use the Brush Tip end of your marker and only GENTLY brush over the Glimmer Paper. Too hard a rub may damage the nibs of your marker.
** Only colour the area exposed so you don’t waste the ink. You can see further below.
Here is the card I made with colouring the Glimmer Paper.
This is using the set Color Me Happy now available. I have coloured the bird and the flower with the Stampin’ Blends. Plus I coloured the Adhesive Pearl in too. When I assembled the card I embossed the White card mat with the Softly Falling Embossing Flower and added a strip of white that was cut with the Flourish Thinlits under the Merry Little Christmas DSP. (Don’t just keep this paper for Christmas!).
Getting back to the Scallop Circle. I cut a scallop Circle using the Layering Circles Thinlits from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Then coloured just around the edge of it gently with the Dark Bermuda Bay Blends marker. You don’t want to press hard with the marker. Also, you only need to colour the outside edge that will be seen.
So what colour Glimmer Paper will you make?? Have fun with it.
Have a great weekend,
