The "Big Shot" & Texture Plates

How did I ever make a card without the "Big Shot".   I have had more fun stamping & playing this week (of course all for my business, smiling!).  I was playing with the new texture plates, I used my brayer to ink up the texture plate with Cameo Coral Classic Ink and then put my Cameo Cardstock on the texture plate and ran it through the Big Shot.  Love the effect of this.

Have you checked out the individual stamps on page 208 of the Spring & Summer Idea Book & Catalog.  This is the Elegant Thank you which works perfectly with the square scallop punch.  I just love how so many of the Stampin' Up! products are designed to go together and make stamping so simply and fun.  Top it off with a Fire Rhinestone Brad and this card can be made in minutes. 

Check back tomorrow to see what has been transpiring in the soon to be Granddaughters Nursery!

Stampin' Up! Information Make & Take

DSCF0022 copy


For the past month Tom has had Friday's off, and how fun it has been to have three day weekends together.  He is my best friend and the only thing better would be if he would learn to love stamping as much as I do, then we could stamp our weekends away. 

He has enjoyed the benefits of my love of stamping on six Stampin' Up! incentive trips, the only stamping he has done was on those trips.  On the earlier cruises I earned they had a spouses event which included stamping.  I wanted to share with you his first work of stamped art that Tom stamped on our first  cruise.  The only other stamping he has done is at one of my opportunity nights, a long time hostess (Brenda) who came told him she would sign up to be a demonstrator if he stamped a card, he didn't hesitate a minute.  

For those of you who have been waiting to see Tom stamp, stop by my stampin' spot Wednesday Night February 21 at 6:30 to see this rare and awesome moment!  You may not get this chance again!  Just email me at patstamps@embarqmail.com to have a little gift waiting for you when you arrive.

Definitely Diva Shoebox Swap!

Michelle Lembcke

Every other month my downline gets together for a Definitely Diva Stampers Stamp and Share.  We have an optional shoebox swap which is the hit of the day.  I think I have some of the best stampers/swappers in my group.  The cards are to be designed to be made in 10 minuets or less.   Some take a bit longer, but we are always delighted to make those cards too as then we have some cards for a stamp camp or special event.  Like this Ewe card how cute is this? Made by Stampin' Up! demonstrator Michelle Lembcke. Click here to view all the cards made that day.
