I did it!

My friend Tina is a great computer wizard and she told me how to put a background on my site to pretty it up some. I followed the directions (which is hard for me). I am a hands on person not good at written directions; but I did it. Now I have some Clovers and pretty leaves on there. Thanks Tina!

Sesame Street Characters with punches

Did I tell you how much I love punches here is a special card for a special friend and I hope she doesn't see this before I give it to her. I hope it makes her smile. Have a great day and get those punches out and make something FUN!

Sharing a special card

Here is the opened card... with the diamond fold,
This is the way it looks after second cut. The other picture shows the negative placed so you can see how to position the petal first cut and run through the second time. I am just showing the negative because you cannot see the lines on the black die.

Card Closed

Here is a card I made for a special friends birthday. The sunflower is made from the petal die made by sizzix and available through Stampin' UP! Order # 113467 $ 19.95 to make the flower put the cut out petal die cut through one more time lining up the petal part with the indentions on the die. The Roosters are from a hostess set that is available now with a $300 order or hostess party order over $300. It is called Rustic Rooster a level 2 set.

In the beginning...

Hello everyone this is my first post. I am a Stampin' UP! demonstrator and want to share my creations with you. You can order online from my own Stampin' UP! site at I have been stamping for many years as my daughter and I started when she was very young and in 4-H . Her first demonstration was on Embossing and she showed many ways of using the embossing on Napkins and notecards and stationary. I belong to several stamping groups and learn a little more at each get together I attend. There are many techniques and many ways to use stamping in decorating your home. I hope to share some of that here. If you would like to host an event or party for me I would love to check my calendar if you live anywhere near my home in Citrus County Florida. Just shoot me an email.

The picture above is one of the cards I made for another stamping buddy. It was a mystery swap. We had to use a paper bag as the mystery item. I used the stamp from one of our saleabration stamp sets and a marker to make it look like a vintage type tin punched cupboard.
