Easy to Make Easter Card

Easy to Make Easter Card

This Easter card is easier than it looks and soon I’m going to prove it!  Have you started on your Easter cards yet?  It’s late this year.  Just 17 more days. Easter cards make Ann nostalgic.  Besides it being Ann’s favorite holiday, her mom used to always send Easter cards. Wouldn’t you like to have that affect on someone?  A breath of Spring and thoughtfulness.  Yep.  And maybe something with some real meaning. Don’t you just love it?  Baked Brown Sugar, Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla.  Oh yes, and Garden Green for the grass. Card Making Tip Stampin’ Up!...

Watercolor Easter Card

Watercolor Easter Card

Wouldn’t it be nice to sit down and just color like a kid?  Ann is finding that water coloring her cards is very relaxing – almost as much as having me on her lap after dinner. And the best thing to learn is that you don’t have to stay inside the lines!  Or so she says!  There’s more about that after I show you the card.  because you WANT to see the card, right? Did you notice that we’re featuring a different Sale-a-Bration item that you can get for free?  It’s only until March 31st and I’m wondering why I didn’t have Ann use the Petal Parade...

Come Stamp with Us!

Come Stamp with Us!

I had a grrrreat time trying to distract Ann during her Online Master Class last night.  But she kept right to showing everyone how to mass reproduce cards that don’t all look alike. Ann does better with doing a variety of cards so this may be just the trick for her when it comes to making a lot of different cards.  And she showed them my special way to get more from your card stock just by cutting it different.  They could make 8 cards out of 1 sheet of Designer Series Paper, 1-1/2 sheets of card stock (& 4 sheets for the 8 card bases) & some scraps. and it sure doesn’t...

Doodles’ Easter Card

We are loving this weekend!  I love rabbits!  Ann loves Easter.  What's not to love? And to top it off, my gal pal Doodles sent me an Easter card!  Gotta love this!  I shared the envelope with my Facebook friends yesterday.  I know that sounds funny, but Doodles put a teeny Big Shot butterly from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit on the outside of the envelope!  That butterfly stayed on the Sticky Strip for almost 1,800 miles through several post offices! Doodles' mom is pretty smart because she's a Master Stamper member – but she still...

It’s a Good Friday!

It's a VERY Good Friday!  Except it's going to rain tomorrow.  I hope it's going to wait until after the Easter Egg Hunt.  This is the beginning of Ann's favorite weekend of all year and I have her working!  Yep!  You've heard me bark about the Master Stamper community.  They're not professionals (but there are some Stampin' Up! demonstrators honing their skills too). Everyone is working together to improve their stamping.  (and they're ALWAYS asking about me!) Ann's revving it up over there.  Over the past...

Punch Art Easter Bunny

Ann was playing with punches.  I got this one away from her before she was finished.  I think she was planning on doing some piercing, but I'm pretty sure that the bunny wouldn't like it. So are you ready for Easter?  Stocked up on eggs?  Got your camera ready for all the pretty Easter dresses and the Easter Egg Hunt? This might be a good time to try your hand at digital scrapbooking.  Stampin' Up! has lowered the price of the My Digital Studio digital scrapbooking software from $79.95 to $19.95.  (We recommend getting the disks.) If you bought...

Don’t Eat the Stamps!

We got our Photopolymer Stamps yesterday.  Ann and Donna had fun playing with them on the Live Online Stamp Together yesterday.  (Actually ANN rated them.  Donna was making a card based on a sketch that everyone was working on.)  Ann also did a section on organizing your punches and, well, I was outside running around for most of it so I don't know WHAT exactly they were doing.  All I know is that they were smiling every time I saw them.  If you'd like to test drive the Master Stampers so that you can attend the Saturday morning session, check it...

Almost Free Easter Gift Tags

In my dog house meetings, I barked at Ann about the fact that we've done little about cards and things for her favorite holiday – Easter.  So let's see if we can catch up. This one features the free Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Madison Avenue.  It's easy.  It's fun.  What more could a stamper want when they're mass producing some fun gift tags for the Easter Baskets? Just 9 days left to get this stamp set and the ribbon. Here's a bit of what we used. HAVE YOU VOTED FOR ME IN THE PET PAGEANT?  3X A DAY IS ALL I ASK! Order online &...
