November Card Club & My new Stampin up Site

Hello everyone,
I scheduled our November Card club for Nov 5th.  The very first Friday in November.  I just can't wait to get back into crafting.  I'm almost over this crazy cold.  I can't seem to get off the cough drops yet though.  I've also got my Stampin Up Website up and running for those of you who would like to get some stampin ideas and projects from home and shopping is available 24/7.  If you need any help navigating around the site just click here to send me a message and I will gladly help you out.  There are some great deals in the clearance section of the site and new items are being added as they come available and disappearing as they sell out.  At this next card club I will talk to everyone about a stamp club and see if anyone would like to get involved in it.  I will also be showing you all the holiday mini that's out right now.  Let me know if you're interested in attending.  Space is limited.

Scallop Circle Flower

Hello Everyone,
Here is a card that I made to send out for a Thank you.  I was playing around with some punched out scallop circles and was trying to figure out how to turn it into a flower.  A few (hundred) punches later, I came up with this side profile flower.  I loved it because it has some dimension and can be made in any size.  I've made my first youtube video explaining how to make it.  You can CLICK HERE to watch it.

Supplies used:

2" scallop punch
Stampin up patterns III paper pack
bone fold
Stampin up Dimensionals
Stampin up modern label punch
Stampin up inspired by nature (grass in background)

Guess What!!!

I finally did it!  I've joined Stampin Up.  I've talked about it for about a year now and finally became a demonstrator.  I've told a couple of you already in person and some of you even want to schedule a workshop which is wonderful.  If anyone is in need of any items now or in the future, just click on the contact me link on my blog or email me direct and let me know what you are looking for or if you have any questions.  You can go to the online catalogue at to check out their items.  This is not my direct website for orders so be sure to send them to my email or blog.  I will be giving some additional info. at card club tonight.  I will email my regular girls that aren't able to make it.

Happy 60th Jerry

We went to a surprise party for a family friend this past weekend.  It was hard to believe that he was turning 60.  I started to think of what I was going to do for his card because once again, I'm not the greatest with the masculine ideas for cards.  I just got this new stamp set from Stampin Up's current mini catalogue called French Foliage (LOVE IT) and I knew that it would be perfect for a male card and it fits for this time of year.  What a great set!  I used bravo burgundy and pumpkin pie ink.  I did the BAM! method on it.  This is where you add your lighter color first then BAM it once into your darker color and then stamp.  It gives it a nice 2 tone color.  The combination was perfect.  Hope you like it!

I am rescheduling this month's card club from Oct 8th to Oct 22nd. With this weekend being a holiday weekend, it's hard for some people to make it. Hopefully anyone who would like to come can still make it on this future date. Once again, please forward me an email if you will be making it on the 22nd to reserve your spot.  Have a nice Columbus day weekend.

Another Birthday Card

Here's a picture of my husband's birthday card.  I really didn't know where I was going with this one.  I know it's a really bad photo.  I had all kinds of crazy things in the background because I still haven't purchased a photo cube to take my blog pictures with.  I Love making girly cards but when it comes to masculine cards, their just not fun for me.  I used this old bamboo stamp that I bought from ebay a few years ago.  I used really rust by SU and this designer paper also from SU in the same color.  The card base is kraft by paper trey ink.

Hayley's Birthday card

My oldest daughter Hayley turned 12 this week.  Here a quick little card that I made for her.  I made this cute side profile flower with a few simple folds.  We will be making some of these flowers at this month's card club.  I will be posting a card from my husband's 40th birthday tomorrow night.  His birthday is today and I haven't taken a photo of it yet.  Happy stamping!
