April Desktop Calendars

Before I start today, I want to say thank you to all my email subscribers for hanging in there.  Unbeknownst to me, my email update service stopped working sometime in March.  If it wasn’t for a dear friend telling me that she was no longer receiving Swimming In Stamps emails, I never would have known.  So I had to scramble over the weekend to find a new service and get… Read More »

Butterfly Silhouettes

Do you ever just peruse Pinterest for inspiration and ideas?  I seem to be doing it a lot lately.  It’s a little addictive.  It fascinates me to see the clever ideas that others come up with. The other day, I pinned a gorgeous butterfly card that I wanted to try my hand at recreating (and of course give my own little touch.)  My mom happened to be visiting, so we… Read More »

Add a Curve!

For Technique Thursday this week, I have a simple technique that you may not think to use.  I simply took my photopolymer stamp and instead of placing it straight on my acrylic block, I bent it into a curve.  This is a huge advantage to photopolymer stamps!  They can bend!!!  Here’s a example below using the Chalk Lines stamp set. My card today features the Watercolor Wings and coordinating Bold… Read More »

New 2015-2017 In-Colors!!!

One of my favorite things about a new annual catalog is the unveiling of the new In-Colors.  Each year, Stampin’ Up! releases five new In-Colors, which are only available for two years, to keep its color palette fresh and current.  Personally, I think Stampin’ Up! does an amazing job.  More than once, I’ve noticed that I can find just the right color to coordinate with clothes in photos (for scrapbooking),… Read More »
