Changing things up a bit

Happy happy joy joy!

I saw a red corvette today on my way to work. The license plate was cute: NO ECAR and it made me laugh. Can you imagine an electric corvette?

I guess that makes you wonder what in the world that has to do with me and stamping. Seriously, I thought that too. But here I am Thinking to myself what about No EStampin? Why that popped into my head I don't know. But it is there so I figured I would post it and get your opinion.

So what do you think?

I really am looking forward  to getting your input.

Welcome back! Today I am sharing a project using the really fun High Tide stamp set from the Occasions catalog.

High or Low I am with you!

This is a multi-technique card. This was such a joy to create and I just could not wait to share it with you.  I love lighthouses and the ocean so this just sings to me.  

Using both sponges and daubers I created the sky and the ocean.  The horizon, sun and the mountains were created using Post It Notes!

Blending the colors was challenging at first which frankly is always tough when you have the idea in your head and you are putting it to paper. 

Stay tuned as you will see a few more cards using this stamp set! High Tide.

Stop over and check out some of the other products we have on sale - get the bundle of products to create this card and others and qualify for free Sale-a-bration product.  Ask me for details!

Some have asked what got you started stamping short answer my husband!

My upline Jeannette can relay just how I began my experience with this awesome group of people and products!

It all began with a conversation I had with my husband that I wanted to meet some local women as many of my girlfriends live far away, North Carolina, Florida, and Nebraska just to name a few - kinda hard to get together without MAJOR planning. So on to the story - my husband Chris, daughter Sabrina were going to a craft show being held at at the NZone in Chantilly, VA. There were many great artisans and crafters, however, nothing that I looked at and went WOW I want to learn how to do that. Lots to buy absolutely but nothing I wanted to LEARN. Towards the end of the displays, I came up to where Chris was standing in front of a table and talking to the vendor, that vendor was Jeannette.

I loved the cards and other projects she was displaying and we chatted. She was talking about an upcoming workshop and my husband whips out his phone and proceeds to check our calendar. The next words were "yes, you are available and are already scheduled. - Time to make some friends!" The rest as they say is HIS FAULT!

Jeannette LOVED that it was my husband that pulled out the phone and did all that. So I went to my first class and honestly have been hooked ever since. I love my upline - she is amazingly inspiring. I have made many great friends and the joy of seeing friends and family faces when they receive that unique one of a kind card from me is great!

I look forward to where this fun and excitement can take me.

Loving Stamping!

So I had some 12 x 12 designer series paper and ....

So I saw this YouTube tutorial on how to make this adorable card set with a single sheet of designer series paper as the holder with NO adhesive. I then made the coordinating cards for inside. This was so easy to do.
