Aloha! Welcome to the ICS Blog Hop where today “It’s a Guy Thing”! As you follow along on this blog you’ll see lots of card ideas for the men in your life.
I’m using the beautiful Waterfront Set paired with True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper.
It’s so simple to create a beautiful scene using this stamp set! And I love using the Corduroy Ribbon to add a little texture.
This reminds me… I haven’t been to the beach in awhile. Just returned from visiting my daughter in Syracuse, NY and I must say it makes me appreciate the Maui climate! Snow & sleet over there in April!
Here I am at Niagara Falls freezing my tail off! Fun times!
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure & continue hopping with us to see more “guy things”! Next up is my friend, Nichole Loe, who always has some fun ideas to share!
I’m excited to see the month of May! Nice weather, barbecues, but mostly I’m excited that I get to preorder from the new annual catalog (one of the benefits of being a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!).
Here’s my calendar page for May- appropriately dedicated to crafting!
Did you notice those are all the In Colors for 2017 – 2019? Love those colors! This cute stamp set is called Crafting Forever. It’s full of cute stamps: pens, brushes, corny sayings… a must for every crafter!
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you’re fitting some stampin’ therapy into your busy schedule! Hop on over to check out Anne & Crystal’s May calendars. They’re sure to have some creative ideas for you.
Build your stamp collection with a new stamp set every month! Along with each stamp set you’ll receive 3 completed cards using the featured stamp set each month.
Most Clubs like this offer kits that you put together. But in my experience, kits sometimes don’t get done. With my Stamp of the Month Club, you’ll receive completed cards, making it simpler for you to recreate the cards using my sample cards.
Another thing you’ll appreciate about my club… there’s no obligation to participate each month! Just choose the months and stamp sets you want!
Featured Stamp Set for May 2018 – High Tide
(Photopolymer – $36 stamp set plus $8 postage/handling & completed cards with instructions)
My blog is a work in progress right now. Soon I’ll have a spiffy sign up form, but I haven’t figured that out yet. So if you want to opt in to the club this month, please just comment at the bottom of this post or shoot me an email.
Here’s a close up of one of the cards:
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great week.
Welcome to the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop, where today’s theme is “It’s a Girl Thing!” I’ve made a fun shaker card staring the lovely mermaid from Magical Day.
Sparkles & mermaids. I think that qualifies as “girlie”. Love these colors!! This will be one of my cards in the April Card Layouts Class. In this popular class, we’ll make 3 different cards using 1 layout. If you make your own card at home & post it on our group FB page, you’ll be entered in that month’s drawing for a prize! Here’s the dates if you’d like to join us (3 dates- same projects):
Saturday, April 21 (11am – 1pm)
Sunday, April 22 (11am – 1pm)
Monday, April 23 (noon – 2pm)
Contact me if you’d like to participate but can’t attend class & we’ll work it out.
Are you wondering where I got those “bubbles”? Those are the little Silica Beads that were in all the albums I purchased for the Card Layout Class participants! I know you’ve thrown out tons of those… now you’ll have to save them for your Shaker Cards!
We have a fun Sketch Challenge for you to participate in at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration! This is a great way to help you get started when you’re making a new card. We hope you’ll participate in our challenge.
Here’s what I came up with:
This set is special because I got it FREE in Prize Patrol when I was in Salt Lake City in November for On Stage! It’s called Lovely Wishes. I really love these colors together! Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, & Lemon Lime Twist. I’m trying to come up with colors for my blog. Time to make some changes! But I’m very wishy washy so far… changing my mind every day!
Sale-a-Bration is over! Waaaaa! It was sure fun while it lasted. And one thing we all know about Stampin’ Up!… they always have something up their sleeve! I’m heading to Las Vegas for On Stage this weekend!! Maybe I’ll win another Prize Patrol!
Make sure you head over to the SSINK PAGE to see what the other designers have done with this challenge.
