Just a simple little card to share with you today. This is one that we did at the August Cards class last month. I used Glossy White Cardstock, along with Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede and Whisper White. This card features two-step stamping with stamps from the Good Friend set and I added a knot in Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. I love it :)
I've been getting everything ready for the Frank n' Stuff class (tomorrow night and Thursday morning) see post from 9/16 for more information. Let me know if you'd like to join us, there's still room!
And now, I'm off to start on some creations for the rest of October's classes. Stay tuned...
Your question for the day is: How did you get started in rubber stamping or scrapbooking? And, what was the first thing you made?
I'm off to take a nap, I've got 30 minutes to spare and I can hear my bed calling my name...
Have a great evening!

We'll definitely scare up some fun at this Stampin' Up! Halloween Class. You'll make all 5 of the items shown: A Luminary with flameless tealight candle (tealight is included in class cost, see second picture for a lit example), Frankenstein box, Skittles matchbook (papers for this one will vary but are all adorable!), Reese's cup spooky threesome box, and a duet of well dressed peppermint patties all packaged up for gift-giving. All candy is included. These would be so much fun to share with your friends and family! All you need to bring with you is adhesive and scissors. RSVP early, this class is sure to be popular.
Today I'm sharing a couple more swap cards that I received at the Regionals last week. They both use the Petals a Plenty Sizzix Embossing Folder out of the new Holiday Mini Catalog. Wowsa!
And now, I'm off to stamp something. I'm working on a few 'magical' items for an upcoming Halloween Treats class. I should be ready to post it sometime this week, so be sure you come back now, ya hear? ;) I hope you have a great day!
These are just a few of the beautiful swaps I received from the Regionals in Cincinnati last week. Please ignore the flower petals peeking out at the top, I had to lean the cards against something to get my pictures and it shows behind the short cards.
Some details on the cards:
Card #2- Made by another long-time stamping pal, Linda Pagel. Linda and I have been in several swap groups together through the years. She's so talented that Stampin' Up! asked her to show us some things at regionals. Wow! We were all totally impressed with the sliding cards she demonstrated. Real Red, Close to Cocoa, Soft Suede and Whisper White are the colors used in the card shown. Linda used the Sparkly & Bright and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets. She also used the new Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper, Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, the Word Window and Wide Oval punches to make this adorable card!
Card #3- I THINK this card was made by one of my downline, Dawn Buck (I say I think, because she didn't put her name on it and it's a shame because it's adorable!!!) She used Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and White for her colors. The card was made with the Sizzix Clear Circle die, the Scallop Circle Die and the Birds & Blooms Die set. She also used the Print Patterns Designer Papers in Real Rose. So cute, I love it! Edited to add: Dawn emailed me this morning to thank me, but says this is NOT her card. So I told her she's forgiven for not putting her name on this card that wasn't hers ;) I do have her card in my stack to post though so you'll all get to see it later this week!
The question for today:
- Thirty 6x6 Print Patterns Papers
- One spool of 5/8" Satin Ribbon in Whisper White

I'm going to keep this contest open for one week and you can enter ONCE for each question. If you enter more than once per question, all of your entries for that question will be tossed (sorry!). Each day this week, I'll be asking you a question. Comment on the post with your answer and you'll be entered for the day. It's as easy as that! Saturday, September 19th will be the last question and the drawing will take place next Sunday. Please do not post anonymously as I won't know who to award the prize to if you're drawn! Good Luck to all of you!
Today's Question is a two-parter and you need to answer both parts to qualify:
Do you currently take any type of papercrafting classes (rubberstamping, scrapbooking, altered items)? Why or Why Not?
Here it is, the revised Rolling Penny Card for this month's card class (see previous posts for more info). I liked the other one, but I'm totally in love with this one. Wait until you see how cool it looks in person. The sunflower (super easy to do!) rolls from side to side as you tilt the card. Is it wrong to be in love... with a card?! Make sure you sign up for class if you haven't already. Don't forget, I have kits available too!
Check back tomorrow to see the swap cards I'm taking with me to the Stampin' Up! Regionals in Cincinnati today. I'm getting super excited, it should be a great day!
And now, I'm off to stamp something... in Cinci with about 300 of my closest Stampin' buddies! It just doesn't get much better than this :) Have a great day!
As for the Sweet Treats card. I know I promised it today, but I'm having a little bit of technical difficulty with getting the picture loaded. I'll work on it again in the morning when my eyes are a bit fresher.
And, I saw the CUTEST flower today that made me totally second guess my previously posted rolling penny card. So, with your permission, I'm going to change it for the Sept 16th & 17th class. I like the one I already have posted, but I absolutely am in love with the newest version. Keep an eye out for the revised card in Friday morning's post.
Normally I would sign off and stamp something, but I've been at that most of the day... I think I'm going to head off to bed. I wonder if I'll be able to sleep with all of these fun ideas rolling around in my head?! Ah, if only stamping time lasted as long as a football game. Imagine what all you could accomplish!
Good night, I'll 'see' you tomorrow...
Well, I hope you all had a nice Labor Day weekend. Yesterday was a little wet and rainy for my taste, and I did have to work, but other than that I loved spending time at home with my family. Any day we're all together just has to be a good day!
This is lovely card number 3 from my Sept 16th & 17 Card Class. This technique is so much fun. I left the shiny spot in the photo so you would 'see' the emboss over. I just love it and I think you will too!
And now I'm off to stamp something! See you tomorrow!
Correction: Oops! Scratch all of that, we'll actually be doing the rolling penny card shown in my Sept. 11th post. Check it out and see if you don't like it better :)
And now I'm off to go stamp something... See you tomorrow :)
