July 15, 2021 – Bee Better Soon

2021 Releases, Dull Glossy Paper, Frogs & Bugs, Get Well Soon, Thinking of You

Good Morning! The days just seem to move along quickly. I finished work a little early yesterday and was going to get busy with invoicing and sending orders out only to lose the internet! It’s hard to believe how dependent we are on the internet. One thing we can do – is stamp even when the internet is down!

I needed a card to send to a friend in the hospital so I went digging in my stash and was happy to find this card. The pictures just don’t do it justice! The colors are so pretty- orange and yellow.

Have a great day!

Bee retirement card – July 13, 2021

Dull Glossy Paper, Frogs & Bugs, Retirement

Good morning and happy Tuesday! This card combines an old stamp with the new stamps. For the honeycomb, just dabbed all across stamp with a small yellow ink pad and then a more golden/orange ink pad for variation. The paper that is stamped on is dull gloss and the bees are colored with alcohol-ink markers.

2021 Releases, Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper, Just a Note, Thank You Cards, Thinking of You, With Sympathy

So last week I showed you one of my card kits. And so today’s card shows how I put them together.., there are four outside sayings along with a inside saying. So when I need a card I have one with the exact saying that I want.

I love doing cards like this so I have options! I feel like these pictures don’t do the card justice. It is so much better in real life.

Good Afternoon! We have had rain for a few days now. We have really needed it but now it can go away although it does make for a good Stamping day! We are off to a graduation party this afternoon and of course my card wasn’t done so quickly had to put one together. You would think I would have a pile of them ready to go. I do have a stash of Birthday and Sympathy. I guess I should just keep working on graduation cards as long as I have all the stamps out!

Have a good weekend.

So this is how my cards start off generally. I will make lots of flowers and color and cut them out. I will stamp and punch out words. Then I’ll build kits of cards. Then when I need a card – I grab a kit and put it together with the words that I want! Then the rest gets put back into the kit pile.

I did add a little bee at the last minute. I needed a thank you card so I looked at my kits and came up with this card.

Loved one – June 4, 2021

Dull Glossy Paper, With Sympathy

Happy Friday! Here is a very simple sympathy card that only takes a few minutes to put together. To stamp the sympathy phrase, I placed the white piece of paper with the oval cutout on the card and marked lightly with a pencil where the edges were before taking away the white piece and stamping the words. Then stamped the flower and bee on the white piece, colored the images and assembled.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and links are below.

Christmas Cards, Dull Glossy Paper, pattern paper

Good Evening! Wisconsin hit almost 80 degrees today! Somewhere in the high 70’s. You may wonder why I am posting a Christmas card… I don’t know how many of you know but I went back to work as a Certified Ophthalmic Technician which is what I did prior to Stamping. It has been very rewarding back in the eye business. I needed some Christmas cards for one of the doctors and came up with this simple idea.

The background is printed paper for ease and quick ability to make lots of cards. You could use a background stamp, emboss, or whatever you want. Enjoy!

Kind words – Mar. 16, 2021

Dull Glossy Paper

Happy Tuesday! Sending kind words, peace and care.

For this card, the aloe was stamped first on a scrap of dull gloss white paper to set aside to allow time to dry. Then the square was cut out on a dull gloss swatch (4” x 5.25”). Stamped the words next to allow time to dry before assembling. Once the potted aloe is dry enough, it can be cut out and colored with alcohol ink markers. All that’s left is to glue/tape swatch onto cardstock, then put 3D pop up on aloe and attach in window. Quick and easy! The cut out square was saved for another card which will hopefully get finished and posted later this week.
