Opening up Stampin’ UP! Box of Goodies

I did my first Facebook Live Video today opening up my Stampin’ UP! Box of Goodies.   While it was fun, it was also nerve wracking.   I must do more of these to get a lot more comfortable with it.  Check it out and be kind with your comments.   https://www.facebook.com/topsecretstamper/

I am attaching a photo as well.

Can’t Wait to try out all the goodies

To love what we do and share what we love

Stampin’ UP!’s Statement of the Heart states, “To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments… in this we make a difference.”

Creativity is anything that you want it to be.   Everyone has it, you just have to believe in yourself.  We are not all perfect, but that is what is so much fun — most of my cards are a little crooked, but that is just me.   No matter how hard I try to line up my sentiments straight, they always out of alignment.

For those of us that prefer to shop online, the Stampin’ UP! Catalogs are just what you are looking for.  Some people like looking at clothes catalogs, but I have always enjoyed going to a hardware store — I know, Stampin’ UP! is not a hardware store, but it has everything you can imagine inside it.  Why would you want to purchase a “flat” card at the grocery store, the post office, or a box store, when you can make it yourself.   The surprise and delight the recipient will see when they open that envelope.

I love looking through the Stampin’ UP! Annual catalog at all the coordinating products is so exciting.  The color choices are endless — Cardstock, Designer Series Paper (DSP), Ink Pads, Refill Ink Bottles, Ribbons, Markers, Embellishments, and more.   Wait until you see the Stamp Sets, Punches, the Framelits and Thinlits that require the Big Shot to Die Cut all the beautiful shapes.   Even looking at the adhesive will get you excited because there are different types for different projects.

If you have never heard of Stampin’ UP! and would like to receive a copy of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, please leave a message with your email address so I can contact you.  This offer is only available within the USA.

Thank you for stopping by.





Watercoloring with Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens

Watercoloring with Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens is another easy way to create a beautiful card.   Stampin’ UP! reintroduced a Set of Watercolor Pencils in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.   Using the blender pens to create the watercolor effect without the water.

You can also use the Blender pens with the Ink Refills to get a similar look, but I found for this card, the pencils worked better giving it a more evenly distribution of colors.

This card was created as a Masculine Get Well Card.
