Some More Stampin’ Up! Videos

Right now I am visiting my beautiful new grand daughter so here are a couple of new Stampin’ Up! videos for you to enjoy while I am away!

Six Sided Sampler

Six Sided Sampler

Six Sided Sampler is another stamp set that I haven’t used in a while.  It has always been one of my favorites (do I say that with every stamp set?  Yes, I do!).  I love the different hexagon patterns on the stamps and of course, it has a matching punch so there is no fussy cutting.  I used Gorgeous Grunge behind the hexagons to add a little color to the background.  The ribbon I used is retiring at the end of this month.  It is the 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon in Smoky Slate.  If you like this ribbon or any of the other 11 colors, you need to order it before it is gone for good!

Another Sneak Peek Of Sprinkles

Sprinkles Of Life, RMHC

I love the new Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) stamp set that is coming out in June.  It is so cute plus it has a matching punch called Tree Builder!  It is just adorable.  The best thing about buying this stamp set is that Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities for each stamp set purchased.  Not only do you get a cute stamp set, but you help a worthy cause!

The only sad thing about this card is the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder I used for the background is retiring June 2nd so if you want it, you need to order it before it is gone for good!

Sam and Tara had a professional photography come by the house this weekend to take pictures of Madelyn.  I am not sure what she is supposed to be dressed up as (maybe an American Indian) but she is still cute!

Celebrate With Dotty Angles

Dotty Angles, Fabulous Four

I’ve been spending so much time with my new grand baby, Madelyn, that I needed to make some quick and easy cards.  This card literally took me about 5 minutes to make.  The longest part was coloring all the dots in different colors.   I could have stamped the dots in all one color but  I think the different colors make it look like confetti is falling.  Plus it makes it a little more fun!

The “confetti” stamp is from Dotty Angles and the sentiment is from the stamp set called Fabulous Four.  I am happy to report that both of these sets will be in the new catalog that comes out in June.

Revisiting Wetlands


Sometimes I get so caught up in using the new stamp sets that just came out that I forget about some of the older sets that I love.  Wetlands is one of these sets.  When it first came out, I used it all the time and then slowly forgot about it.  I am so happy it is going to be in the new catalog that comes out on June 2nd.  I hate to think it might have retired!

Here is a picture of Waffles meeting Pancakes.  I don’t think she was very impressed but the big tongue giving her a big lick!  I think they will eventually be great buddies someday!

Watercooler Challenge WCC24


It is that time again for our Watercooler Challenge.  This time Stefanie gave us a sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch:

I decided to use the brand new Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set that will be in the new catalog that comes out June 2nd.  It is the cutest stamp set and best of all it has a matching punch.  You know how much I love punches!  Here is my card:

Sprinkles Of Life RMHC

The stamp set includes 22 different stamps.  I think it is my favorite Ronald McDonald stamp set so far.  You are going to love it.

I also used a couple of other new products that will be in the catalog.  The Designer Series Paper I used is called Cherry On Top and has some awesome designs in it.  The banners were made using the new Banner Triple Punch.  No more hand cutting banners out and it makes three different sizes!  I love it!

Saying Goodbye To Geometrical


Geometrical is one of the stamp sets that is retiring this year.  Although I didn’t really use it much, I will miss it.  Every time I do use it, I end up singing Build Me Up, Buttercup all day!  It is a fun song but it gets stuck in my head and then I can’t stop singing it.  Both this stamp set and the Triangle Punch are retiring.  You have until the end of this month to get them before they are gone forever!

Here is Madelyn (also know as Pancakes) on the day she came home from the hospital.  Her parents bought this outfit for her.  She has her first set of pearls!
