AUTUMN is in the Air

I have worked on some cards while on vacation.  Here is one I would like to share.  It is a fall card I did for a swap I am in with my class and retreat friends.  We had to use embossing powder but you can't really see it in the card.  I do like this little leaf  and wanted to use it.  Hope you enjoy it!



Have a great and blessed day!!!!

A QUICK little Golf Card

Even though I am at the beach...I am still doing some stamping.  I had about 25 minutes to sit and make a card.  I wanted to do something with the little golf guy.  Here is the card I created.

I enjoyed doing such a fast card.  I am hoping to get to stamp some more today.  You can visit my "Other Blog" to see what we did at the beach last night.

Have a great and blessed day!

Last week stamping with friends

Last week I got with the ladies that I used to teach class to.  They have taken so long that I can't charge them anymore.....maybe they graduated...LOL  Anyway we have been together for about 8 years or so...maybe longer...who knows.  Anyway we did some stamping and I had to take some of the new Amuse stamps that I got.  Wdid a little treat holder with the 1" x 8" cello bags.  It was very simple but I wanted them to use one to see if they liked them.  Here is a picture of them working:

As you can see they were concentrating...LOL.  Here is a picture of the treat holders.  We only did the Halloween one.  I also made the Fall one which I thought would be cute to put at each place setting at Thanksgiving.

Hope you enjoyed our little project today.  The "Too Cute to Spook" halloween set is so cute and versatile. 
Have a blessed day.

It has been a BUSY Week

I have been trying to get things done to go to the beach.  I will probably be on the road as many of you read this.  I will be gone Sept. 15th - Sept. 25th.  It is an all girls week.  There will be 10 of us sharing a beachfront house in Surfside Beach...which is outside of Myrtle Beach.  It will be a great week of visiting and yes I will be doing some stamping.
I did stamp a quick card today to send out with a catalog to a potential recruit or customer.  Whichever it is...it will be nice. 

This is a lot like the first Amuse card I made.  I love the colors and the stamps so well I did a slightly different version of it.  What I mainly wanted to showcase was how nice the cardstock is.  It is colored on one side and white on the other so you don't have to mat your card to get white inside.  I'm lovin' it!!!

I hope to blog from the beach but if I don't...I will be back as soon as I get back from my vacation.

I have also started another blog and you can click on the link at the top of this blog to get there.  It is brand new and will feature NON-Amuse cards and daily life happenings.  I hope you also visit it. 

Have a blessed day!

Happy Birthday

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  Mine was busy and I will say I am glad it is the beginning of the week.  I did get time to make a Birthday card.  Of course it is a simple card but I am liking all the simplicity with the Amuse stamps.



I used Buttercup and French Roast solid cardstocks, Papaya and French Roast ink pads, French Roast buttons, Paper Flowers Meadow Mix, French Roast/White Bakers Twine,  Birthday Greetings and Polka Dot Patterns Stamp Sets.

Hope you enjoy my sweet and simple card! 
Have a great and blessed day!!!

A Little Halloween Fun

Halloween is just around the corner.  It is not too early to start thinking of some of the things you might like to make.  Here is a card we did in class Wed. night.  The flower is made our of petite cupcake papers.  I put a big brad in the center to hold it together really well.  The stamps and papers are by Amuse.  Of course you can visit my online store .  You can find all of the Amuse items there. 


The stamp sets are Too Cute to Spook and Essential Sentiments.  The Paper is Orange Polka Dot and Slate Woodgrain.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  A very simple cute with a little twist (the flower out of cupcake papers)

Hope you enjoyed a quick card today.  If you don't see me over the weekend...Have a good one and be safe in all that you do.

Have a blessed Friday!!

I thought this was such a fun card.  I loved using the gingham paper as grass.  I actually used three different stamps sets on this cards.  One is Friends Fur Ever Just Because and Woodland Friends.  They sure compliment each other.  You can check these out in the online catalog if you wish to do that.


I used Sky, Sugar and Sage solid cardstocks.  Sage gingham cardstock.  Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.  Papaya, Bubblegum and Fern ink pads.  Copic Markers.  Martha Stewart grass scissors from Michaels.

It was a fun little card to make.  I hope you enjoyed looking at it as much as I did making it.

Have a blessed and wonderful day!

I absolutely love the stamp set Loving Memories from Amuse.  It is in the Fast and Fabulous section of the online catalog.  Here is a picture of the stamp set you can look for.  It retails for $9.99.


Here is the card I made with it.  I used Blush, French Roast and Vanilla cardstock.  Fern and French Roast ink pads. Quickie glue pen and diamond glitter. 1/4" polka dot ribbon in Vanilla.  Border punch which I purchased at Michaels.



This is one of the cards we will be doing in our class tonight.  I love the simplicity.  This will be an introduction of Amuse to these girls tonight.  I hope they love the simplicity as much as I do. 
Watch for more samples to come in the next few days.

A FUN night with my downline

I had my downline over tonight....all TWO of them.  We will grow and that's okay.  Jess and Sylvia were both in my downline with TAC and we had a good time.  Anyway they came over and I gave them some goodies.  Made all kinds of Charts for them to make a notebook to show the inks, papers, nesties and dies, and of course the markers.  We covered a lot of stuff.  Two of the main things we did were exchange cards...so we could have some ideas and I helped them set up a blog. 
Here is the card I did and gave them.  I used the christmas set COOL YULE.  I knew they haven't received any of the holiday stamps yet so I wanted to give them a sample with it.  Hope you enjoy it.
Besides using the Cool Yule stamp set, I also used the cherry woodgrain paper, 'twas the night before Christmas cardstock, bakers twine in frech roast/white french roast buttons Memento Tusedo Black ink, Papaya ink and Fern ink.  You can order all of this stuff my visiting my website.

As for visiting my downline blogs...You can visit Jess here and Sylvia here.  The are both new to the blogging community so bear with them and visit often.

Here is another Christmas card I did using the same stamp set.  I used the Wasabi cardstock, candy cane cardstock, vanilla cardstock, the Labels 8 nestabilities, Fern, Papaya and Tuxedo Black ink pads and the 5/8" cherry satin ribbon.


Hopefully tomorrow will be a stamping day.  See you all then!  I hope you enjoyed your visit here.  Please be sure to tell your friends to visit my blog also.  Thanks!!!!!!
