Even More Savings

Do you have something that you have on your stamp table that you haven’t used in a while?  Well, this sale reminded me that Ann hasn’t been putting enough bling on her cards recently. There’s bling – and then there’s bling.  You can put glitter on with a 2-Way Glue Pen, but glitter gets everywhere!  Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details to the rescue!  and it’s on sale this week! It was the perfect thing to put some snow on this roof. Here’s what we used on this fast & fun card.  We didn’t even have to cut out anything!  (That’s especially...

Improve Your Stamping

I am so excited! It’s almost time for Thanksgiving! Are you ready?

Are you having the typical turkey? Or are you having something else that’s even more scrumptious?

Do you like to set a special table? Or do you sit watching the football games and eating on TV trays?

We do different things different years around here at Central Bark, but based on what I found in our stamp room, I think she’s setting a table.

You see, Ann’s been doing a little fall cleaning of our stamp room so I found a Thanksgiving project tutorial that she’s going to post tomorrow on the Master Stamper. They do a lot of cards, but she’s sharing something that she made specially for my favorite huMAN. (She’s make hers and mine sometime before Thanksgiving.)

Something tells me that she’s going to

I’m sure I shared this card before. It was over a month ago in this post.

Some of our local stampers made it with us at one of our Christmas Stamp a Stacks. I’m sure they liked it because that Lost Lagoon and Silver really sends me into holiday mode.

My! What a Big Card You Have!

My!  What a Big Card You Have!

Here’s the situation. What do you do?

You need to make a card – but about 40 people need to sign it. That’s kind of hard with a standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ handmade card unless everyone is writing in teeny tiny letters.

What would you do?

Patriotic Holiday Card & Card Giving Days

Patriotic Holiday Card & Card Giving Days

Do you have a loved one serving overseas? Here’s a Christmas card with patriotic colors that might not make them quite as homesick as a Christmas card with standard Christmas colors.

Ann used to live in England with my favorite huMAN way before my grandmother was born. She knows what it’s like to live away from family. In fact, we live away from family now.

It’s so nice to get something from home, but it can be kind of bittersweet because it reminds you how much you miss someone. (Make sure you mail early!)

We chose patriotic colors for this card because it has

How Do I Start a Card?

How Do I Start a Card?

What inspires you when you sit down to make a card? Do you decide the layout first? The color? The stamps?

This time, I suggested a layout to Ann first. Because we make many of our cards for sharing with you, the type of greeting isn’t always thought of until we’ve made the card.

That is, unless we need a specific type of card.

But with this card, here’s how it went (at least this time):
