Coffee Cafe

I know that doesn't look like coffee does it? Instead it looks like lemonade which is perfect with summer here. I wanted to show the versatility of the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups dies. I got this inspiration from this year's annual catalog. I did use a couple of retired items such as the sequins and the glitter paper. But I also used new such as Lovely Lipstick in the cardstock and ink. Pineapple Punch is what I used to make my lemonade.  I will say that I love that the sequins have adhesive in the back. I believe that is the future of our sequins now and I think that is so much better then trying to glue each one individually. I did use Whisper White for my background and did draw the grid lines myself. But we have many options if you don't want to draw lines we have stamps and even thread that can do that for you. If you like what you see and would like to place an order you can do so here Online Store Also down below you will find the list in picture form of the items I used to make this card. Thank you for stopping by!

Hold Onto Hope

We first saw the stamp set Hold Onto Hope in the most recent Occasions catalog. I am just now playing with the set and dies. I am glad I did because I feel as a result I made a couple pretty cards. I looked to the Occasions catalog for inspiration with the supplies I had on hand. I did get a little frustrated with  my Coastal Cabana card because at first it wasn't going the way I wanted to. I made a couple changes and I was much happier with it. I often forget how pretty a card is when you use the same color paper and ink. Like I did in the Calypso Coral card. I had a lot of fun with the 1st  card as I used a stamping block to ink up my paper and make my background paper. Don't be shy in using glitter paper to die cut your crosses. I think it makes for a elegant effect. I also wanted to remind you that this stamp set in particular was inspired by Million Sales Achiever Brandy Cox. As always you will find these items here Online Store as well as a supply list down below.

Birthday Blooms

I do realize that all the items save for the ink and cardstock is retired. But I wanted to share anyways. Besides that there is the possibility that the stamp set may still be available but its not guaranteed. I made this for a dear friend who's birthday was today and I didn't want to spoil it for her by sharing it earlier. Perhaps my card and envelope will be an inspiration to you in case you have these things in your own personal stash.

Stamp Stash

My stash is 7 years old. Its as old as I have been a demonstrator and my 7 year anniversary is next month in July. I wanted a visual of what stamps I had that I could use right now as I have to wait till this Friday to place a new catalog order. So the first picture is the stamp sets I have that are recent or what I wanted to keep. The 2nd picture is my retired stash. It definitely was a eye opening experience. I haven't decided what I'll keep for personal use or what I will sell.But if there is anything you are looking for in particular feel free to ask. I may very well have it and may be willing to sell it! Down below you'll see pictures of my recent stamps that carried over and their price which you can get here. Online Store Thank you for coming by! Have a creative day.
