These are some of the handmade tags that I am bringing to Bishops Boutique Fund Raiser at Bishop England School on the 5th of December.  Some I made with retired product but a great way to use up scraps.

01. May 2013 · Comments Off on Bloomin Bouquet Kit available · Categories: Uncategorized

Mother’s Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There’s no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.

As if that weren’t enough, the kit contains a “baker’s dozen”! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn’t normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you’d like to give a little “thank you” to-and introduce them to Stampin’ Up!

Ordering information:

Item 134542 $12.95

Available starting April 29, while supplies last.

  • 13 green floral wire stems

Training Tips:

  • This kit makes a great gift, both assembled and unassembled. Your customers may want to give it as a fun do-at-home project, or create it themselves to give.
  • This kit can appeal to both stampers and non-stampers; the ease of assembly means anyone can do it!
  • Use this kit for a quick and easy class! Just provide some adhesive, and your class preparation is done for you.
  • Add your own finishing touch to the bouquet: place it in a vase, wrap it up in tissue paper, decorative ribbon, or twine.

This is one of the cards we created in our clubs this month.  The DSP is from the Big catalog called Birds of a Feather!


09. March 2013 · Comments Off on Great Masculine card! · Categories: Cards, Uncategorized · Tags: , , , , ,

This card was made with the canvas shown in our spring catalog on page 21.  I love stamping on canvas……however, what I probably won’t try to do again on canvas, is water color the image….talk about labor intensive…..I wasn’t going to post this, but then again I spent so much time on it that I needed to post it, just to get some satisfaction for my time. LOL
If you will note that I stamped the image with black stazon because I wanted to water color it.  But I stamped the sentiment in basic gray classic ink using a marker and was really surprised in how clear the sentiment came out.  In addition, I love these new buttons, on page 20, because you can use the thicker ribbon with them.


08. March 2013 · Comments Off on Artisan Embellishments! · Categories: Cards, Uncategorized · Tags: , , , , ,

Of course you know everything used on this card is either from the Spring mini or SAB.  The gorgeous flowers come in the Artisan Embellishment kit found on page 10 of the Spring catalog.  You can make tons of cards from this little kit just by adding the card stock.  You don’t even need a stamp if you want to use the LOVE in it. LOL

Such a buy for $9.95.

Soon we will be wearin the ‘green’ and this card shows plenty of that!  Love these new builder brads available with the Spring mini on page 12 of the Spring mini.  I can’t stop playing with them, they are so much fun!

My sister’s birthday is today and she has subscribed to this blog so I thought I would surprise her and give her a hey…..just in case I forget to send out her card!  OOPS!  I just realized that this is a sympathy card….oh well Judy, I guess the older we get the less happy we feel about birthdays.LOL
I tried embossing in white on the very vanilla background to give it a little contrast.  Hope you like it.
We will be traveling back to SC soon so in case I haven’t had a chance to update my blog, please hang in there and check back with me.

You get 2 postings today, just like yesterday and a little surprise that I just discovered with these new stamps.  AWESOME!

03. March 2013 · Comments Off on Another Two By Two! · Categories: Cards, Uncategorized · Tags: , , , , ,

I watercolored this image as I did the one I recently posted, but I changed the format of how I assembled the card, and used the Big Shot for almost all of the design elements.


02. March 2013 · Comments Off on Spending some time with the Red Sox! · Categories: Uncategorized

Well, Jack and I are on the Golf coast just outside Fort Myers for a little R&R.  My husband has been a Red Sox fan since he was old enough to walk and play baseball so we try to go to Spring Training as often as we can to see them play.  I must admit, I love base ball too!  Since Fort Myers in Florida is a lot closer that Boston, we try to see them play down here.
We will stop off in Orlando for one night so we can go to Sea World.  When we were there last month for Leadership, we didn’t get a chance to see much so hopefully, we can see a little more of that while we are down that way, and it breaks up the drive.  It is possible that we may stop on the way back also.
I pre-posted before I left so I hope that the projects I designed show up on the days that I am gone.   Have a great Weekend!  Hugs, Patti

The supplies to make this card can be found on page 18 of the Spring catalog.  You get so many of these beautiful flowers with the set both in Calypso Coral and Pool Party.  So much fun to create with.

This is so cool.  It is a die that you use in your BS to create this pop up stand up card.  The first picture of course is the front of the card and the second picture is when you open it up it reveals the cutest dress form.  You can get the framelits dies and the “All Dressed Up” stamp set for 20% off.

The card base can be used with other magnetic dies and is separate, as is the dress form Pop ‘n Cuts.  Contact me if you want to see how this is done.

Okay, I guess he isn’t so little but he is so stinkin’ cute!  “Henry Says” is on page 15 of the Spring catalog and you can even use this for Christmas, Valentine’s Day and PARTY! So versatile!


27. February 2013 · Comments Off on You Rule! · Categories: Cards, Uncategorized · Tags: , , , , ,

I actually bought this stamp set “You Rule!” to use on a 3D project that I was making for the Artisan Design Team.  However, after I bought it and used it how I wanted to in my project, I changed my mind and went with something else.  That ever happen to you?  You have something in your mind that you want to make and when you put it together, it’s a bust!  Oh well, it didn’t go unused, I like the way it goes with this set “Clockworks”.
