Lovely Amazing You and new Weekly Deals

Stampin’ Up! introduced a new Photopolymer Stamp Set yesterday that I can’t wait to show you!  It’s called Lovely Amazing You.  What a sweet name!  I am showing you some samples that our concept artists have created so you can see how amazing it really is!

Lovely Amazing You Photopolymer


I love seeing new images, and swirly-curly letters like these.    I think my favorite is “you make my heart happy”.  I really think the most popular one will be the CHOCOLATE one……but if you know me well, you know that I don’t like chocolate too much.  I know, I know……you can’t understand that!  Hope you enjoy these samples and will consider heading to MY STORE to purchase your set!  (Item 140594, $14.95)

Wonderful Wreath Decorative Gift Boxes

These Decorative Gift Boxes were made at my club class earlier this week.  I appreciate other bloggers and Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who share their wonderful ideas, and Patty Bennett shared this idea on her blog HERE.  If you don’t follow her blog, I highly recommend you giving it a special spot on your list!

If you thought this wreath was ONLY for Christmas, you are so wrong!  Type this stamp set into Pinterest and catch a glimpse of all the uses for this wreath.  I am hoping that Stampin’ Up! will keep it in our product line in the Spring, as well.  This is truly a set for all seasons!  You will want to purchase the Framelits, as well, so that you can easily cut out these shapes, along with the other images.  I colored the tiny pearls with one of my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilites for a little added dimension.  It’s subtle, but I like it.

These boxes are packaged in sets of 6 for $4.95.  That’s right, less than $1 per box.  You can’t go wrong with these.  I plan on using them during the holidays for small food items such as Cinnamon Candy, cake balls, cookies, fudge, and Peppermint Bark.  I think it will be the perfect size for giving to all my neighbors and co-workers.

Friends are the greatest!

I really don’t know what I would do without friends!  I hope you have friends who hold special places in your heart!  God has placed some very special people in my life over the years, and I am so thankful to have shared so many memories with them.  We all have different types of friends in our lives — sometimes my work friends help me through the day……..sometimes my church friends encourage me at just the right time…..there are Stampin’ Up! customers and demonstrators who have become my friends for LIFE — all because a rubber stamp started our journey together!  Life is truly about relationships, and I’m so thankful for the friendships in all the walks of my life!


I know all too well that the dearest friends in life can live the farthest from you! Truly, my best friends are thousands of miles away, and my heart hurts because I miss them so, so much!  But I treasure our long-distance relationship  and they know SO MUCH about me.  We spend so much time talking on the phone, and sharing with one another.  I pray that you have people know alot about you — and that you are reminded today of how special your friends are in your life.

Notice how straight the Chalk Lines background images are??? That is the BEAUTY of Photopolymer stamps!  Truly clear, 100% clear stamps, and they are so easy to use.  An added bonus — they STICK to your clear block and do not come off!  In fact, they are actually hard to get off — they require you to peel them off with a little force involved.  Have you tried them?

Labels Collection Framelits (125598, $26.95)

Weekly Deals and Fall Fest Card using Blendabilities

Stampin’ Up! introduced new Weekly Deals yesterday……and I’m pretty excited about these.  I don’t have a few of these items, so I’ll be adding them to my order this week.  Would you like any of these items?  I’ll throw in FREE SHIPPING if you email me or call me with your order before they expire next Monday night.

The card below was used for one of my recent Blendabilities Classes.  We used them in a “non-traditional” way and colored on top of embossed pumpkins.  First you want to emboss the pumpkins on Whisper White Cardstock using White Embossing Powder.  Allow them to cool.  Color and shade as desired.  Use a light touch to protect the tips of your markers.   Hope you enjoy another great idea using the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Blendabilites markers (Pumpkin Pie set).   P1050921





Stampin’ Blendabilites Samples

I had my second class on Saturday, and these were 2 of the samples we made.  (The other 2 were in my last post.)  Wow….I can’t say enough how wonderful these markers are!  They make me feel like an artist — and I enjoy coloring more than I ever did as a kiddo!  Want to learn more?  Come to Blendabilites Class #3 on Saturday, August 23rd from 10-12.  You will love it!

This last card is a really fun card!  The center of the Vellum flower is made with a “blob” of Crystal Effects.  I put the Crystal Effects on my Silicon Craft Sheet and let it dry overnight.  I used my darkest Daffodil Delight marker to color the “blob” and let it dry a bit before placing in the center of my flower.  Isn’t that cute?  The fun little Polka Dots were stamped with one of our newest Photopolymer images — “Dotty Angles” — Item 133658, $15.95.  There are 2 images, these dots, and also some cool triangles.  Check it out!daisy card 1
