I made this a window card by punching out a circle on the front layer of the card.  And then added punched out layers to it to add dimension & more color!
These are the circle layers I made to add to the front of the card.

I was on the go all day again yesterday!!  I was up early to get things cleaned up from Friday nights class & ready for yesterday mornings group to come stamp.  It was a fun morning of stamping with all that joined me.  Yesterday afternoon I went to our (nephew Jordan Woods' fiancee), Shannon's bridal shower with Amanda, Sarah (& kids) & my sister-in-law Pam.  When I got home I burnt the midnight oil cutting card stock!

A fun pull out tag, with 'Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts'!

Here is a fun pull out tag card.  This is a card that everyone joining me for my May monthly classes will be making with me this week!  Didn't it turn out cute!  I used a lot of retiring products here on this card!
I will update this post with supplies & more information in the next day or so.

A Brusho "Butterfly"!

Look at the sparkles on this butterfly!!  It is just beautiful in person!!  I love it!  And so did lots of the ladies that have made it so far at my May monthly classes. 
-On the solid piece of Glimmer I have shown here- I used the Yellow & the Gamboge Brusho colors.  -On the Glimmer piece above that I have the butterfly cut out of, I used the Red & Yellow Brusho colors.

Check out the Glimmer Butterfly on my card.  
Here is how you make the butterfly-
  • Cut a 3x3" piece of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
  • Sprinkle the Brilliant Red Brusho onto it.
  • Take a Spritzer with alcohol & sprayed onto the Glimmer Paper/Brusho combination.
  • Let it dry for about 1 hour.
  • Then with the Glimmer side down on your Big shot & the butterfly framelit (cutting side down) onto the slick back side of the Glimmer paper- run it through the Big Shot.
In my opinions I found:
-That the Red Brusho with the Alcohol spritzed on it alone, did not blend well & leave a vibrant color on the Glimmer paper.  I did re-wet/spray it several times with the alcohol & I took a sponge duaber & worked in the Red Brusho, so that it wasn't in a cluster.  When I added the Yellow Brusho with it-it  blended a little better & added some more color to the Glimmer.  But my favorite was when I combined the Yellow & the Camboge Brusho colors, as the blended well & showed more vibrant colors. But those colors didn't go with this card- but it sure would work well for another color combination of So Saffron & Pumpkin Pie or even Calypso Coral!  (hint! hint!)

No matter how many times you do this technique- it will NEVER turn out to be the exact same look!  Each piece has it's own/individual look!
So everyone joining me at my 4 stamp classes this weekend will be making this butterfly card with me!  
stamp sets:  'Perennial Birthday' & 'Touches of Texture'
card stock:
  • Basic Black-- 5 1/2 x 8 1/2"; 2 3/4" strip; 4 1/4 x 3 1/4"; 1/2 x 4 1/4"
  • Rose Red- 4 x 5 1/4"; 2 1/2 x 1"; 4x3"- RETIRING
  • Whisper White- 4 x 5 1/4"
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer- 3x3"
ink:  Archival Basic Black- RETIRING
other:  1 3/4" Circle Punch, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, You Move Me Thinlits (for the butterfly), Dimensionals
Yesterday was a busy day with the kids.  Last night Deke went to Brayden's ballgame (and they lost 6-3).  I stayed home & burnt the midnight oil cutting card stock.  It was a short night- as we are up at 4:30 this morning to mark, sort & load hogs.  One semi is to be here at 5:30 & the other one at 6:30.  Hope they are on time & everything goes well.  Deke will then chore & he is off to a meeting.  I'll spend my day with the 3 little ones.  And then tonight I have a house full joining me to stamp!  And I'll go to bed as soon as everyone has gone home.  As tomorrow morning I have another stamp class here at our home to get all ready for. 
Gotta run......
I hope you have a FABULOUS Friday!!
Happy Stamping!

Yesterday was a busy day with the kids.  It was a hot & muggy afternoon, but we played outside anyways.  Deke got the yard mowed before he left for his night meeting, so when the kids went home I worked in the yard for about 2 hours- pulling weeds.  I still have LOTS to do in it, but it looks better than it did.  I then came in & burnt the midnight oil stamping!

This morning I'm up early & gonna work on stamping stuff before the kids get here.  I'll spend my day with the 3 little ones.  And then we have a ballgame to go tonight.   I'll be burning the midnight oil stamping when we get home.

'A Little Wild' treats!

Look at these adorable little treats made with the 'A Little Wild' stamp set!  I am not sure which is cuter- the bear or the elephant.  They are both adorable!

My dear demonstrator friend Sharon McNeely made these for everyone that attended my Spring Fling last month.  Wow- such a great treat & nice surprise for me & all of my customers that attended too!
They all hard little rolo candies in them!  

She cute them out with the coordinating Little Loves Framelits! 
Yesterday I spent the day at home, except for going up to Deke's parents for a few minutes yesterday morning to say 'good-bye' to our Pennsylvania family that was here & headed back to their home.  

I worked on stamping stuff all day/night.  In the afternoon, Manda came out to bring my Mother' day gift & we stamped for a couple of hours- creating & cutting invitations for Trey's birthday party!  Nathan stopped down last night & brought my Mother's Day card & flowers.

Deke is off early to chore this morning & head to the office for his weekly board meeting.  I'm off to walk & then head to town.  I'll take the twins to school & then spend my day with the 3 little ones.  Deke has another meeting tonight- so when the kids go home I'll be burning the midnight oil stamping!

I hope you have a MARVELOUS Monday!
Happy Stamping!

WOW- the NEW 2018-2020 In Colors!!

Oh wow- here is a card I made for a class last week to show off the NEW 20180-2020 In Colors!!  

This card has something old & something new both used on it!

The layout is a weave that my demonstrator friend LeeAnn shared.  When I saw the layout I knew then that I was going to use it with the New In Colors. And I sure think this card turned out so cute!

This layout is a great way to use up your 1/2" scraps!  Are you a saver or a thrower?  If you are a saver- you are set to go!  If you are a thrower, you'll just have to cut some 1/2" strips to weave!
The 'Stylized Birthday' stamp set here is RETIRING!  It is a single stamp!  And it is such a great stamp!  I have used it alot & I'll miss it!  It was my "go to stamp" when I needed a larger birthday font.

The stars came from the 'Confetti Celebration' stamp set & it is RETIRING too!  I also used the words from this stamp set in the inside of the card too.  Again- this is a favorite stamp set of mine that I'll miss.  I have sure used it alot over the years! 

The stitching along the In Color strips I did was super easy!  I just used my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and free handed it. 

So which is your favorite NEW In Color?  I like them all!  I am honestly probably the most excited though about the Blueberry Bushel, as we really need a blue card stock like this!
  • Call Me Clover- green
  • Blueberry Bushel- blue
  • Pineapple Punch- yellow
  • Grapefruit Grove- peach
  • Lovely Lipstick-red
Here are the supplies & the measurments that I used-

Yesterday was a busy day!!  It started out with all 6 kids!  We made it to school, just as the first bell was ringing.  I then came home & spent my day with the 3 little ones.  The weather was chilly, wet & windy- so we didn't get to play outside much.  We did go out for a bit in the afternoon & had my niece, Stephanie, her husband, Chris & their 2 kids- Katie & Henry, here to visit & play with the boys.  It was WONDERFUL to get to see them, as we hadn't seen them for almost a whole year, as they live in Pennsylvania. 

Manda picked up her 3 boys after she got off of work.  And we had Masen & Ainslee here for the evening with us.  After we took the kids home I picked up toys, answered a few emails , did my post & called it a night.  

This morning we are up early & off for a busy day!!  I'm cooking food & getting ready to head out the door to my sister Beckie's.  We are having a Mother's Day brunch with my side of the family this morning.  We are also squeezing in a couple of soccer games too.  Then tonight we will have supper with Deke's family, so we can all get to see some of our Pennsylvania family that is here visiting.  

I hope you have a SPECIAL Saturday!!
Happy Stamping!

This morning we are all up early & headed out.  Deke is off to chore & head to an early meeting.  Manda & Nathan both have early meetings too- so I'll have all 6 kids- bright & early this morning.  I'll feed them all breakfast & then take the 3 big boys to school.  I'll bring the 3 little ones home with me to spend our day together.  My nieces are back in Iowa from Pennsylvania for the weekend, so they are coming down to visit this morning so that the kids can play outside.  I'm looking forward to seeing them & getting to visit.

Tonight I have Masen & Ainlee.  And I have lots of stamping to get done.  So we'll see how it all goes.

I hope you have a FABULOUS Friday!!

This morning I'm headed to town to get the boys, take them to school & then spend my day again with the 3 little ones.  The 3 big boys will be here after school.
