Stamp Set of the Month

How does it work?
I choose a stamp set and create 5 projects with instructions/tutorial for that stamp set.  I cut all the pieces for those projects.  Envelopes are included.  That package and stamp set will be mailed to you for you to assemble.

How much does it cost?
If you don’t have the stamp set – the cost of the stamp set (plus shipping and tax by Stampin’ Up) + $15 (projects and instructions)

If you have the stamp set - $20 (includes projects, instructions, and shipping)

There is no membership fee.  Only order the months you want.

When are orders submitted?
Just place your order by the 20th of each month for the upcoming month.

How are orders placed?
You have two options:
Place the order for the stamp set via my Stampin' Up Website ( and use the Hostess Code provided for the month.  Then use PayPal to pay for the materials.
Use PayPal to pay for everything.

*Prices are for Clear Mount Stamp Sets.  Add about $6 for wood mount stamps.

Look below for the stamp Set, price, and Hostess Code.

January 2014 - Mixed Bunch (Clear Mount) - $30.64* + $15 = $45.64  Hostess Code:  G3JC3SM3

Masking Butterflies

I love the masking technique.  It looks great but its not very easy to do all the time.  This is my 4th try.  Whew!

Card Stock:  Whisper White, a scrap piece to punch a 1" square
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black
Stamp Set:  Papillon Potpourri
Tools:  1" Square Punch, pencil, eraser, ruler, removable adhesive

Draw a very light vertical line at 2.125" (divide in half).
Draw a very light horizontal line between 2.5" and 3".  It's your preference.
Punch out a 1" square out of a scrap piece of card stock, the "stencil".
Line up opposite vertices of the stencil with the line that was drawn.
Use removable adhesive to adhere.
Use a sponge or a dauber to sponge the color a square.
Repeat 3 more times around the "cross".
Stamp a small butterfly over the colored square.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

This card was done with the "Rock-N-Roll" technique on the flowers.  You stamp the flowers with the lighter color (Baja Breeze), then "rolled" the outside of the stamp in the darker color (Rich Razzleberry) in a circular motion.

The Happy Birthday was stamped 3 times using a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.

Valentine's Day

Today, I wanted to post some of the Valentine's Day projects I've created.  The first project is a Marquee Valentine's Card.  When the card is opened, a cute little surprise lurks behind.


The next card is a Slider Card.  You pull the ribbon at the top and the bottom "drops" out.


This is my first attempt at stamping on a candle.  It's a great gift idea!  It was very inexpensive.  I got 4 candles from Ikea for about $4.
