Hi Everyone

100 lashes with a wet noodle for me for being gone so long. I am really sorry about my absence. I have no good reason, and I do thank all of you for not abandoning me.

Did everyone have a great Thanksgiving. I know I certainly did. We went to a friend’s house (that I met at church- woo hoo)  and spent the day with her and her family. We just sat around and ate good food and talked about all the nothings in the world.

Today’s cards I cased from Connie Stewart. She has a video showing you how to make 4 cards with 3 pieces of paper (2 neutral and 2 half sheets of color). Isn’t that awesome. She is a wonderful lady and has such enthusiasm. You can see her cards and video here. Here’s my take on her cards.

Hello

Hi Everyone

How’s it going today.? Wow, the weather here today is just gorgeous. It’s 69 degrees and the sun is shining. Just beautiful. Perfect for a picnic or to play in the park.  Great day for going to the zoo. Any outside activity would do as long as you don’t have to sit on some cold bleachers. 🙂

Today’s card reminds me of a pretty spring or summer day.

Just For You and I can’t Thank You Enough

Hi Everyone

 

I have some Stampin’ Up specials for you – woo hoo

Undefined Stamp Carving Kit

During Convention 2013, Stampin’ Up! unveiled an exciting new product called the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit.

That’s right – a stamp carving kit!  It’s “undefined” because you get to carve what YOU want on your stamp or stamps!  You can express your personality, interests, thoughts, and feelings by carving your own stamps.  You’ll really get a “look what I made!” sense of satisfaction!

Here’s a great little video to show you just how easy it is to carve your own stamps:

Here is what is included in the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit, item # 133402, $19.95:

Undefined carving kit

– 2 carving tools, 3″ x 4″ rubber, 3″ x 4″ foam, 4 wood blocks (various sizes), Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Marker, 3 postcards, instructions, and stamp image templates (in case you can’t think of anything on your own!)

We know you’ll have lots of ideas for making your own special stamps, so we highly recommend you purchase a Undefined Refill Kit at the same time!  It is is item # 134808 and costs $9.95.  Here’s what is included:

Undefined refill kit

– 3″ x 4″ rubber, 3″ x 4″ foam, 4 wood blocks (various sizes), and instructions

If you prefer Clear-Mount stamps or think you might want to carve a bigger stamp than the wood blocks provided, you can purchase our Clear-Mount Cling Foam (item # 124236, $10.95).

Need some ideas of what you can carve?  How about these suggestions:

  • a catch phrase or word you or your family uses all the time
  • a family logo
  • the name of your favorite vacation spot
  • a favorite food or drink
  • a team name or logo
  • your name or a family member’s name or initials
  • high school or college mascot or emblem
  • a stamp representing a favorite activity
  • a blog logo
  • a favorite animal
  • a speech bubble
  • a favorite image from a stamp set that is no longer available
  • a punctuation mark (like a @, !, &, or ?)
  • an image from My Digital Studio
  • a favorite cartoon character
  • a superhero logo
  • a stamp to use for a specific party theme
  • a video game character or logo
  • social media buttons (Like button, Pinterest button, etc.)
  • religious emblems
  • any image you’ve always wanted a stamp of that you haven’t been able to find!

You can see some actual carved images and projects created with them on Stampin’ Up!’s Pinterest page for the Undefined Kit by clicking here.

Thinking of You

Hi Everyone

How’s your weekend so far. Been busy here, I have Swiss Steak going in the crockpot. I made Meatballs and Spaghetti from scratch, it’s on the stove simmering now. Weather bites though. It’s been raining off and on all day. But, on a good note, I do have a card today.
