Stamp Ink Paper: Color Challenge

For me, card-making is therapy and as of late, I get so caught up in the thing we call life that my therapy sessions haven’t happened as I’d like. =)  With that, I wish you an Oh, Happy Day!  I’m not even sure how many people actually stop by and check out my weekly cards, so if you’re reading this, THANK YOU!

The Details:

  • Embossed Background.  This oval-shaped background was a piece of scrap whisper white cardstock that I had laying around. I couldn’t even tell you how it was cut.
  • The Church.  The church is from the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies.  It’s a part of a strip with another building (home) and two trees next to it.  It’s super cute and you can snip what you want or leave it in once piece.

Stamp Ink Paper: Back To School

This last week there were so many photos on social media of kids returning to school and many were sporting cute little signs.  I wonder of all those photos how many parents left little notes for their kids in the lunch boxes?  I’m willing to bet there are many, but one lucky third grader got this handmade card in their lunch bag.

The Details:

  • Garden Green Cardstock Chalkboard.  Garden Green perfectly resembles a chalkboard and to give it the real chalkboard appearance complete with chalk dust made with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder!  The picture does it no justice!
  • Versamark Pad.  To give the appearance of chalk dust, I took the entire pad of Versamark and lightly dabbed it on the cardstock and sprinkled some of the White Stampin’ Emobss Power.
  • Grade.  The coolest option for this card is that you can make it any grade you’d like.  The Numbers of Years stamp set comes with every number from 0 to 9.

Retired Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop: Fourth of July

Welcome to the very first blog hop made up of members from the Retired Stampin’ Up! Products for Sale Facebook page.  Today’s theme is Fourth of July and every project is made with retired Stampin’ Up! products.  We are very excited to show you our creations and hope to make our hops something that you will follow each month.

As a military Veteran, I’m VERY proud of being American.  As an avid stamper, I love any stamp set that has the American flag.  I also enjoy clean and simple cards that anyone can make.  Often a simple stamped image can speak volumes and I think my card with just the colored in flag oozes patriotism.

The Details:

  • One continuous stamped image.  Do you think the stamped image is one stamped image?  Nope, it sure isn’t.  It looks like one continuous stamp because I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the images and give the grass as if it’s one stamp.  I love the Stamp-a-ma-jig and how it can help you line up stamps on wood blocks.
  • Make an image pop.  Since today’s blog hop is dedicated to the Fourth of July, I wanted to add emphasis to the American flag by coloring in only the flag.  That’s the focus of my card and it’s why I didn’t stamp any sentiment.  The Red, White, and Blue speaks for itself. 

You can continue to hop from blog to blog from the line-up below to see all the projects.  Please feel free to leave comments as you hop along the way.  We hope to see you again next month!

Fellow consultant Brittany’s TRUE STORY made me giggle.
Reverse Regimen
She washed her face (with R+F products of course) before dinner,
at the table her husband asked,  “Do you have makeup on right now?”
She said, “No, why?”  That’s when he said, “Wow, the products really do work!”
She said he hardly noticed when she got a short haircut and died it brown. 😂😂
