STAMP OF APPROVAL COMING SOON!!!


Hi everyone!
All week long StampNation members have been receiving clues to a certain mystery sponsor!  The mystery has been revealed.  I'm so excited for Catherine and her new hand picked, exclusive collection called:

Stamp of Approval!!

There are very limited supplies of this first box, so be sure to get on the wait list.  Based on the response we’ve had so far, I’m afraid this is going to sell out fast.  This is NOT a kit! This is an exclusive collection that was designed for this specifically and will not be available in stores until 2016….


Don't miss out!
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

CASEing Genius with Kelly Latevola




Hi everyone!!!

I have some exciting news! Kelly Latevola invited me to take part in her series CASEing Genius. You can find the link here. She showcases a fellow crafter on her blog every Monday. It's the perfect series in which to learn and be inspired by other crafters within this fun cardmaking community.

Kelly, herself, is super sweet and talented and has coloring skills to die for. I would love if you hoped over to her blog and checked it out. Thank you so much Kelly for thinking of me!

Before you go I want to keep you up to date on our StampNation California Vacation stops.  Day 5 we traveled to the San Diego Zoo.

Here's a peek at the DT's cards. 


For Day 6 we are visiting the heart of San Francisco and the famous Postcard Row, across from Alamo Square comprising of 7 houses called, The Painted Ladies. They are known for their Victorian and Edwardian architecture as well as the use of 3 or more colors of paint to enhance their design features. You can now see Painted Ladies throughout San Francisco, but these 7 are the original and most photographed because of their prime location across from the park.

And the DT's cards.


Tomorrow is our last day of our vacation but the fun thing is you can travel along with us weeks, months and years from now and be inspired by the different challenges.  Where will we end our fantastic California Vacation and who is our SURPRISE sponsor along with Ellen Hutson?  

Come check out StampNation for some clues and to play along!!!


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!!!!

StampNation California Vacation Day 3

Hi everyone!

Day 3 of our StampNation California Vacation takes us to Hollywood!

Lights, Camera, Action! It's time to roll out the red carpet and soak in the glamorous side of California. When people visit CA they hope to see a few movie stars. If you can't find your favorite movie star on the red carpet, perhaps you can find their name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

Here's a peek at the DT's cards.


 We would love to have you join us on our virtual vacation!

StampNation California Vacation Day 1

Hi everyone!

It's time finally time for our StampNation virtual vacation!!! 


This year we are headed to California, the Golden State.

From the gold rush of the 1800's, to the sunny summer skies that seem to last all year long, to the glitz & glam of Hollywood, this state is truly is golden. We could spend a month here and still not see it all. Let's see what we can pack into a week visiting California.

The first challenge is to add gold to your card, in honor of the Golden State.
Here is a peek at the DT's cards.

Merry Monday #167


Hi everyone!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Bonnie challenges us to create a Christmas card with a heart on it.


I created a CAS card using the Folk Heart dies from the Essentials by Ellen line and the image and dies from the Nativity set by Simon Says Stamp.  I watercolored the image with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  The star is cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glitter paper by SU!
 
 Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog. I hope you will join us! 
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps:  Nativity (Simon Says Stamp)
Accessories:  Nativity dies (Simon Says Stamp), Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper (SU)
