Surprise, surprise and bring on some trees!!

I love surprises as much as I love any kind of tree stamps!  Yes, I am one of those tried and true lovers of the oldest stamp from Stampin Up! Lovely as a Tree.  Have you seen this one?

Lovely as a tree

I use this set for Christmas cards, Sympathy cards, Thank yous - manly cards...well you get the picture.  If you don't have this set, YOU NEED IT!!! Here are some of the cards we have made in the past with this set:

Looking at these makes me want to get this set out and play again!  

So here is the surprise...leave it to Stampin Up! to give us another tree stamp set to love!  Starting August 2nd, you have the opportunity to purchase the following brand new stamp set called Thoughtful Branches:

To make this even better -there is a matching Thinlit set to boot!  Here are those:

This bundle can be purchased for $52 (+s/h and tax)  starting on August 2nd!  Here is a card I started with - I haven't even started with the thinlets!

Again...LOVE the trees in this set and there are a few to pick from!  What do you think?  Do you need this one?  :)  A special bonus for those purchasing this bundle from me...you will receive 3 projects made with this bundle, already cut and ready to stamp just for ordering this from me!  (Think of this as class on the go with 3 ideas to start using this bundle with!)  How exciting right?  Let me know if you would like to order this starting August 2nd...happy stamping!!  :)

How about a new bow technique?!?

Hello my friends!  I thought I would share a technique I learn from my very good friend Brenda Boeve.  Take a look at this bow:

Isn't it cute?!?  I love how easy this is to make but such a statement piece!  Here is a few more looks at this cutie on different cards:

Here is a video to show you just how to make your own.  And a challenge to you...in the video, what do you think my favorite color of Bakers Twine is?  Those who guess correctly will go into a drawing for your very own Paper Pumpkin kit!  Take a look:

 

I hope you love this and can't wait to see what YOU come up with.  Happy crafting!

How about a little hair gel?

Hello my stampin friends!  Last week I brought back an old technique that some of you may have heard of and some of you, well, this could get a little crazy!  LOL  Here is the card:

Fishes

It may be hard to tell from the picture but the circle is a baggie filled with hair gel!  (YES - HAIR GEL!!!)  This card is so fun to make and thought I would try my hand at a short video so you can create one too!  Here it is:

 

I hope you enjoyed the video and if you have any questions, just let me know!  Have a great rest of your day!
