Time is Running Out on Thoughtful Branches!

ON A PERSONAL NOTE . . . I’ve had trouble with my MailMunch Subscription Widget that is located in the Right Side Bar of my Web site. You know . . . where you enter your email address and then click Subscribe Here! so you can receive an email whenever I create a post to be shared with you. EVIDENTLY IT HAS NEVER WORKED! UGH! I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m the only one who has handled the creation of my Web site. I’m am not a technology guru but I know just enough to get me by and that includes trial and error! So are this has been my only problem! Knock on wood! That being said please read the FYI below!

FYI . . . If you have received an email confirmation to confirm subscribing to my blog, it’s because you had subscribed in the past. I’ve tested this out with two other email addresses (one being my daughter) and so far receiving an email confirmation works! So all you need to do is CONFIRM! Easy Peasy! Now the true test is when I upload today’s post, I will be able to confirm that “yep, it’s working”! Keeping my fingers crossed!

ONE MORE THING . . . If you receive an email confirmation and then visit my blog, please leave me a comment on today’s post. That way I will know that I don’t have to update your information since you had subscribed in the past at some point. I do have a list of emails that had subscribed in the past. That way I will know that I don’t need to go back and update your information. Thank you so much in advance! I apologize for any inconvenience as well! 

TIME IS RUNNING OUT . . .

The last date to get this exclusive, limited-time bundle Thoughtful Branches is Aug. 31st! That is tomorrow! I have seen so many wonderful cards AND projects using this bundle. Of course, you can do plenty with just the stamp set as well! I personally don’t have this bundle or even the stamp set but I wanted to share it with you just in case it’s a “I can’t live without this!” type of emotion! 😉 This bundle is ONLY available August 31, 2016 or until supplies last! Personally, I really LOVE this set and I’ve been just itching to order! I posted about this back on Aug. 8th if you want to go back and check out more images with this bundle.

Every Blessing Christmas Card

2016.8.29 Every Blessing Christmas Card

Yes, it’s that time when we card makers need to be thinking ahead about our Christmas cards. This Christmas card design is for my MIL. I’m thrilled with how it turned out and better yet, she LOVES it as well. Yeah! I used her stamp set, Every Blessing, which is retired from the last Annual Catalog 2015-2016. I used Gold Vellum card stock from Hobby Lobby since Stampin’ Up! doesn’t carry that item. I embossed it using the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love how it turned out! I also used Gold Glitz Dazzling Details in the middle of the star. Believe me, it looks stunning in person! (If you are interested in the stamp set, you could check on eBay for availability.)

Here is an image of the Every Blessing Stamp Set . . .

Happy Birthday Travis & PP308 Color Challenge

2016.8.18 Stars Happy Bday

Happy birthday to my nephew, Travis! He is just one of three sons to my twin brother, Tony. Yes, I have a twin brother! It’s back to school on Monday for Travis so I LOVE these bright, cheery “Back to School” colors in The Paper Players Color Challenge! Check out the other great cards by the Design Team and other participates!

2016.8.18_pp308

After I had made Travis’ card, I made another one but I didn’t use the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. It’s very CAS (Clean and Simple). It just shows you how you can step up a card by adding something as simple as some textured embossing!

Adventure Bound Birthday Card & Missed MOJO Challenge!

I made this “adventurous” birthday card for my son-in-law, Jon, whose birthday was this past February 24th. I was inspired by a sketch (see below) challenge at MOJO Monday’s so I got busy! For some reason I thought I had until this past Monday to upload it onto their site, but NO! I don’t know what I was thinking since they ALWAYS come out with a new challenge on Monday’s!! Duh! This would have been the very first time for me to have participated in a MOJO Monday’s challenge. But no problem, I made a pretty cool birthday card for Jon and he loved it! Check it out!

2016.3.2_happybday

This is the sketch . . .

2016.3.2_Mojo436

My supply list will not list the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack (4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″) as it’s retired. Please check out Stampin’ Up!’s other DSP papers and DSP paper stacks to accomplish this card layout! The Designer Neutrals Collection buttons have been updated with newer style buttons so I have those listed in the supply list. Just remember, you can take this sketch and have fun making your own card! Be sure to check out MOJO Monday’s blogspot and all the participants that upload their own SWEET CREATIONS!

By the way, the Tin of Cards Photopolymer Stamp Set also coordinates with the Tin of Cards Project Kit that is on this week’s Weekly Deals!! Be sure to check it out! Also view a YouTube video over on my So Inking Sweet FaceBook page showcasing the Tin of Cards Project Kit!
