Help For Mom!



I don't have a project to post today. I am traveling to my home town to go get my Mom to take her back home with me so Dave and I can take care of her for awhile. My Dad has now been gone for a little bit over a month and Mom is not doing well. It's so hard to be too far away to travel daily to help her so I finally convinced her to come home with me. Grieving is a difficult emotion to go through and I want to help her on her journey to getting better, stronger and healtier. Please pray for my Mom and I will try my best to post as much as I can while she is here, but she comes first. I do have my Saturday Blog Hop all posted for tomorrow so make sure you visit!

Paper Pumpkin March FREE Project Sheet!


The Paper Pumpkin March kit is here! And what a cute kit this is! My project for today is an Alternative Project using the kit contents. If you look closely at the mini cards shown above, you are going to see that there are some designer paper ear layers. When you remove the ears from the sticker sheet, there is a left-over ear frame. Well you know me, I don't waste anything. If you take your scissors and cut around those frames, look what you can make with them:




I cut six of them and created a flower! My FREE project sheet is included below. Did you know I create Alternative Projects for my subscribers each month AND I also belong to a team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who create Exclusive Projects for our subscribers! I send so many ideas to my subscribers each and every month. Here's a close-up of my flower:




And here is the project sheet that you can download, print and make a card just like this one!

Beginner's Class Week #5!



It was all about butterflies last week for Week #5 of my Beginner's Class. The girls had requested some "thinking of you" cards so I thought butterflies would be perfect. The first card uses the Butterfly Basics stamp set and we stamped in layers to create a collage:




The 3D butterfly looks pretty glued over the stamped images. The butterfly is from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies:






For the 2nd card, we used the retired Swallowtail Butterfly image and stamped by keeping the cardstock base open. The edge of the butterfly was cut by hand and layered with a piece of Dapper Denim Cardstock:




This is what the inside of the card looks like:




And this is the front fully opened:




We also added a smaller, layered butterfly using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set along with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches:

March Thailand Achievers Blog Hop!



Last Call for Sale-A-Bration is our theme this month for the Thailand Achievers Demonstrators. Welcome Everyone! Yes you read that right, we are all Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that earned an incentive trip to Thailand and the date keeps getting closer and closer!


Reminder that Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st so if you still have items on your Sale-A-Bration wish list, now is the time to earn them. Also, some of the products are no longer available as we are running out so don't wait!


My card for the hop uses the Reverse Words stamp set. I inked the image using Soft Sky Ink and then added a small sentiment on the inking with Dapper Denim Ink:



Notice the embossing on the Soft Sky Cardstock piece? I used the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and actually used the de-bossed side:




And here is a close-up of both sentiments paired together for one neat look:





You may have started the blog hop here at Debbie's Designs, Debbie Henderson or you may have arrived here from the previous person. Either way, if you get off track, you can use the list below to get you back on track.












Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting our blog hop today. I hope you plan on visiting all of my demonstrator friends.

Cabin Fever Stamp Camp Cards!



The winter months have been so long and what's the best thing to do when you have the winter blah's? Stamp of course! I hosted my "Cabin Fever Stamp Camp" this past Friday and 14 people were able to make all 4 of the cards you see above. I mixed it up a little with a cool Birthday Card, Easter Card, Masculine Card and a fun Birthday Card. Here are close-ups of each:




The Nailed It stamp set and Build It Framelits Dies were perfect for this Masculine card. So neat to have dies that can cut up all of the tools shapes plus more!




For Card #2 we added a little bit of Gold Foil Sheets to the Falling In Love Designer Paper and the stamping from Easter Message:




Isn't the cross gorgeous when embossed in Gold Embossing Powder?




Card #3 was the most tedious of the 4 cards because of all the of the die-cutting. Clouds, cupcake bottoms and toppers, plus the carnival wheel all make for a fun card!





And the banner was cut, score and glued in place using Stampin' Dimensionals:





For the final card, we used the Cool Treats stamp set to add a trio of delicious-looking treats:




All of the ice cream treats were stamped with two images plus the stick. Two-step stamping:




Thanks to everyone that attended the stamp camp. I look forward to a new one next month! Here is a listing of the stamps and dies I used on the four projects:
