Front Range Stampers Meeting

Happy Tuesday! It has cooled down quite a bit and I guess we are supposed to have some rain all week. I love the rain. I grew up in Washington state and then lived in Las Vegas for 14 years ('nuff said, lol).

On the 4th Tuesday of the month a group of Stampin' Up! demos from the Denver area get together to discuss business, swap, and stamp. Some of us even meet before the meeting for dinner and make it a girls night out (GNO). Lots of fun and we have a lot of talent in our group. I am designing a 6"x6" technique page for one of the make & takes tonight and I think I might make a card also using the technique.

Have a Terrific Tuesday and Happy Stamping!!!

Stamp Camp West

Hi there!

This past Saturday I participated in a stamp camp with nine other demos. We each designed a card and the guests rotated around to the different tables and went home with ten great cards. I CASED Patty Bennett's flower pot card and did it in three different colors. The ladies loved having the choice of colors. I kind of did it for selfish reasons. By using three different colors I only had to use 3.5 sheets of each color instead of 10.5 sheets of one color. These are two of the colors, the other color was Rich Razzleberry. Everyone really liked this cute little card. The theme of the stamp camp was "Birthdays". Thanks for looking!

First try at adding a card

Here is one of my recent creations. I love the new In Colors! I made this for a technique swap I did with a demo group I formed called the Front Range Stampers. We are a group that gets together once a month. We have different uplines, some don't have an active upline at all. We rotate teaching make & takes and have two swap themes each month. I used the Faux Linen technique on this card.

Stamps - Inspired by Nature, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Sanded background
Cardstock - Old Olive, Textured Rich Razzleberry, Glossy White, Crushed Curry
Ink - Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Black Staz On
Accessories - Medium sandpaper, brayer with foam attachment, distressing tool, clear square button, scallop square punch, Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, mini glue dots, adhesive.

Thanks for looking!

New to this Blogging thing

I have decided to start a blog centered around my love of stamping and card making. I hope to update it regularly and share projects I've made. I may have to ask one of my kids to help me as I am kind of tech challenged. This will be a new adventure for me ... wish me luck!
