June Workshops Via Mail

I am so excited to start off the catalog year with you. Yes, Our 2020-2021 Annual Catalog went live just a few days ago – June 3rd to be exact.

I have two wonderful workshops to share this month. The first is my monthly Workshop I have been offering via the mail since the Social Distancing began due to Covid 19. The package includes everything to create four beautiful cards. You just use your adhesive of choice and then decide who’s day you would like to brighten with a handmade card.

Here are the photographs of these projects:

This is a window card with the adorable birds showing through, sorry the picture has glare from the window sheet.

Card # 2 is:

This card uses a patchwork technique with the addition of texture created with your embossing folder of choice. On this example I used the tufted embossing folder.

Card # 3:

This is the cutes shaker card I have ever seen. We are debuting the molded jar shape and coordinating punch to make this card.

Card # 4:

This card features some of the gorgeous DSP paper from the brand new backgrounds packet and the Forever Fern die cuts.

The fee for this workshop is $15.00 and you can pay via PayPal, cash, or check. If you need additional information please call me (708) 373-9779.

The second option is to join me for a Facebook Live event and create these beautiful cards:

This is a split technique created by Jennifer McGuire and I have seen tons of these cards lately – the hottest thing going!
This is a fancy fold that opens from the top lifting the attached tab front.
This card features the beautiful new embossing folder. I love it!

To participate in this Facebook Live workshop you must pre-purchase the Forever Fern Bundle for $54.00. As a bonus you will also receive the four card kits from the Workshop Via The Mail and receive a swag bag with items selected just for you.

If you have questions or would like to sign up for the workshops then please call me at (708) 373-9779.

Thank You and Happy Stampin

Little Lady Bug Light Up Card

Thank you for stopping by this months Blog Hop for the North Carolina Stampin Up Demonstrators site. I know you will enjoy “hopping” on to all our creative demonstrators sites.

Welcome, today I have a cute card to share with you. This is one of my favorites and I am so sad to see it retiring and no longer available after June 3, 2020. But Ive already found many new stamp sets that I am looking forward to “playing” with. The more I “play” with them the more diverse I find they can be and they almost always spark my creativity. That’s just one of the things I love about Stampin Up!

The Little Lady Bug Stamp Set is featured on this card. I hope you enjoy it. I was inspired by fellow demonstrator Christi Wroe.

Here’s how I made it…

Start with a 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of Basic Black Card Stock. Cute along the 8 1/2″ edge at 4 1/4″ then score at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″”. This is a top opening card and we will make it into an easel card with a surprise feature.

At the 2 3/4″ score line we want to cut out half of an oval. I used the layering ovals die to do this. I placed the die so only half of the black would be cut.

Next I cut a piece of Whisper White Card Stock 4″ X 5 1/4″ and I cut out the same oval in the center, cutting the entire oval. I cut a scrap piece of WW 5″ X 3 3/4″and sponged it with So Safron, staying lighter in the middle and darker along the edges. I then adhered this to the other WW back.

On the front I drew small dots with my So Saffron marker. I then stamped the large flower and the Lady Bugs that I wanted to use. I cut them out with coordinating dies and colored them with my Stamp and Blend alcohol markers. I used the fine tip glue to create the shine on the lady bugs dots. I love coloring with these two tone markers that blend beautifully. Really makes the colors POP!

I placed the dies around the oval, leaving the center open. I also stamped and cut out the sentiment “You’re cute as a bug’ and a slightly large circle from a scrap of basic black.

I adhered the card front to the black, being careful to only place my liquid glue on the folded section.

Next I went to work on the inside, first, in order to make this an easel card you need something to stop the card from closing all the way. To achieve this I stamped “Hey Lady’ on a scrap and sponged the edge in real red. I cut out several flowers and leaves from the same die set using Granny Apple Green and So Saffron card stock. Towards the top I stamped the sentiment Thinking of You and then to finish it off I added the so saffron dots with the marker , placing these along the top and the bottom.

And here is the finished card.

In order to create the surprise element I added a battery operated tea light into the easel section. Viola’

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog I hope you will subscribe and look forward to creating and sharing with you. I talked about Lady Bugs so much, I thought I’d show you my other Lady Bug creation. Several years ago I started, with my Granddaughters, a Lady Bug Garden by painting rocks to look like lady bugs. Now I like to add something new each year.

Happy Stampin

Out with the retired, making room for the new items

Yes, I’ve been cleaning out my shelves and cabinets and have come across many Stampin Up products that have been loved and a few that are brand new. As demonstrators we are encourages to market primarily current products that are available for purchase. There are many retired sets that I can’t bare to part with so they remain on a seperate shelf (ok, really three shelves). The remainder I will offer at half price or the equivalent dollar amount in purchases from the new annual catalog that comes out the end of this month. So if you choose $50.00 in product you can chooses $50.00 worth of retired items. The Sale A Bration items, which are marked as $0.00, will be priced at $10.00 each or an equivalent purchase of $10.00. All items are final sales and available on a first come first served basis.

Please review the list and let me know if you are interested in anything.

N C Demo Blog Hop for April 2020

The theme for this months Blog Hop is anything spring! I love everything about spring, flowers, sunshine, warm weather, and birds. One of my very dear friends has been struggling with the stay at home orders in our state and I wanted to brighten her day with a special card. She loves birds and like myself has multiple bird feeders, baths, and houses. We both have nests of bluebirds in our yards. That is why I chose bluebirds for the card front, but that’s not all – when you open the card you are surprised with an accordion fold and multiple layers of birds attached. Here’s how I went about creating this card.

Start with a piece of card-stock, I used Seaside Spray. Cut the sheet to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ score and fold at 4 1/4″.

Choose a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and cut to 10″ X 5 3/8″. Score at 2″, 3″, 4″, 5″, 6″, 7″ and 8″. Reinforce your score lines using a bone folder. Accordion fold on the score lines starting and ending with a Valley fold.

Attach the two end pieces to the card inside (front and back). I used Tear and Tape to secure this firmly since it will be a moving part.

Cut out 5 birds from the Bird Ballad DSP.









Using Whisper White card-stock . Stamp desired sentiment on one piece, the others will be used for the birds. Glue one bird on each piece. Glue the label to the inside folds of the accordion pleats. They will pop out as the card is opened.

For the card front I used a piece of Whisper White card-stock cut to 5 1/4″ X 4″ and then a floral piece of DSP cut to 5″ X 3 3/4″.

On another piece of WW card-stock cut 2 1/2″ X 4″ I stamped the stamp with multiple birds on a branch and colored it in using Stampin Blends. I torn the top and bottom and lightly sponged the edge.. For the sentiment at the top I cut a piece of Seaside Spray card-stock 3 3/4″ X 3″ and a piece of WW card-stock 1/2″ X 2 3/4″. On the WW I stamped a saying in Seaside Spray and adhered to the front of card near the top.


Thank you for joining our Blog Hop this month, we hope to see you every month. Please stop by our other talented N C Demo Blog Hoppers.
