A Little Rooster to Crow

A Little Rooster to Crow

We’ve been going through our new Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and realized that we hadn’t made anything with the new Home to Roost stamp set that you can get free with a $50 order. We love the new Stampin’ Blends, but we used the Stampin’ Write Markers for this little chick-a-dee. It was so quick and easy. It only took minutes. We haven’t done a country card in a long, long time – perhaps years. But I’m thinking that this is more contemporary country. Would you call it that? What’s your favorite style? You might like country in your home, but...

Welcome Stampers!

Welcome Stampers!

We’ve been getting ready for next week around here. We’re going to have to start thinking ahead because 2019 is kicking off to be a VERY good year! Stampin’ Up! has some pretty grrrrreat free things that you can select with a $50 or $100 buy-in and you, my dear stampers, are loving them! And then there’s that bag… Stampers are loving that bag almost as much as Ann and I are. We figured you could even put a full sized computer keyboard in there! Grrreat for students! But even better for stampers to carry their supplies and or their catalogs. And we’ve even...

Not Your Every Day Sympathy Card

Not Your Every Day Sympathy Card

Why do you think that humans send sympathy cards? Is it to let their loved ones know that you knew the one that left? Maybe. Is it to make them feel bad? No! Might it bring a tear to their eye? Maybe. Today’s card is not your every day sympathy card. We didn’t really know the person that passed away as well as we know the widow. And because she’s got a big road ahead of her with young boys and a daughter in college, we want her to know that someone is there for her. You could also use this card for a friend, but I’m not really barking about that today. I’m...

My Favorite Kit Ever

My Favorite Kit Ever

We stayed up last night and played with some of the stuff that is brand new for Sale-A-Bration. Everyone loves free stuff! Kits are fun and they’re time-saving, but it’s not our go-to thing to do. Until we made this card! Maybe Ann’s attracted to this kit because her maiden name is Post. But I think it’s the overall look, but how easy it was must’ve meant something too. Or maybe it’s because it was free with a $50 order! Yep! She got it last month because she’s a demonstrator and you could’ve gotten it early too! All you have to do is buy...

What a Difference a Day Makes

What a Difference a Day Makes

Tuesday night we got together with our local stamp club and made this card.  It’s a fun night where everyone Well, that was okay.  Everyone liked it a lot.  It’s a card that really speaks to our man friends. Fast forward to Wednesday.  Ann and I agreed that we should show it on our Wednesday Live Stream show.  But you know how it is – especially with sponging.  It’s never going to be exactly the same – and it wasn’t. During the show, Ann explained her thought process during the card.  There’s not much Blackberry Bliss on the first card, but on the...
