Blooming with Kindness Two-Step Stamping

Hello Friends,

Hope you all are having a wonderful week and getting to stamp a lot!  I think making cards is so relaxing and it’s a good thing, because between my classes, workshops, and Stamp of Two-Step Stampingthe Month Clubs, I make around 180 cards per month!  This is a card I made for one of my Stamp of the Month Clubs.  I’m entering it in the Curtain Call Challenge this week.  The challenge is “Anything Goes.”  You can submit any card for this one.  I made the card using Two-Step Stamping and the Baby Wipe Technique.  The stamp set is Blooming with Kindness.

I hope you like it!  Terry

Going for the Gold


Hi Friends,

After gold was discovered in California in 1848, thousands of people (the 49-ers) rushed to the area to find their fortunes.  Most of the 49-ers traveled across the United States in wagons, on foot, or on horses.  The population in many areas increased tremendously, as did commerce. That led to the need for better transportation to and from California. Thus,  the First Transcontinental Railroad was built.

The train stamp in the Traveler Stamp Set reminds me of that time in history.  I thought it would look great on a gold card!  Here it is: Going for the Gold

I used gold paper that was embossed with the Arrows Embossing Folder on an Early Espresso card base. I stamped the train image on the gold card stock, as well, and layered it on a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock.  Do you see the gold patterns on the Vanilla CS? Images from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set were stamped in VersaMark and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  I love the way it turned out!  The banner was layered over a strip of Burlap Ribbon.  The threads on one edge of the ribbon were unraveled and used for the strings that were wrapped around the banner.  What do you think about it?

Petite Purse Gift Bags

Hi Friends,

Are you ready for Monday? If you’re not working, what will you be doing?  I’m having my weekly card making class.  All the ladies that usually attend are just the friendliest people and fun, too!  I always enjoy seeing them.

Today, I want to share the cutest gift bags (purses filled with goodies) made with the Big Shot Petite Purse Die.  The designer paper is not from Stampin’ Up, though.  I had a pack Petite Purse Gift Bags,of paper someone had given me quite awhile ago.  It’s a thick paper and has a beautiful design on it.  Well, what a mistake that was! I cut out all the purses using that paper. Went I began folding them on the score lines, they ripped on almost every line.  I had to tape all of the torn pieces back together! I had already cut all of them with the Big Shot and the Petite Purse Die and just didn’t want to throw all of that pretty paper away!  Will I be using any other paper besides that from Stampin’ Up? That’s a big, “NO”!  I’ve cut out plenty of these purses  using paper and card stock from Stampin’ Up! and have never had this problem!

A petite purse (gift bag) will be given to everyone who made a purchase from me in the last week.  They are filled with goodies, but I can’t tell you what kind because I want it to be a surprise for clients.

So Very Happy

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all are having a great 4th of July weekend!  I celebrated yesterday with my family.  We all spent the day around the pool after having lunch at one of our favorite restaurants.  We usually have a cookout, but since the forecast called for rain, we decided against it this year.

I want to share a card I made for two different challenges this week.  The Color Q Challenge  #248 was all about color: Ruby Red, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, and White.

ColorQ Challenge

The Paper Craft Crew Challenge PCCCS100 provided a sketch to follow:

Paper Craft Crew Challenge

I decided to combine them both for this card made with the So Very Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!  I’m also using this card at for Stamp of the Month Club.

Classy Cut-ups CreationsI love to enter card challenges whenever I have time.  They’re so much fun.  If you haven’t already entered any challenges, you should try it sometime!
