Video: June Online Class Featuring It Starts With Art stamp set--week 3


 It was time to make a Christmas card with the featured stamp set of the month.  One thing I love about Christmas is seeing all the sparkles all around, so that seemed an appropriate sentiment for making a Christmas card with this stamp set.


The touches of gold add just the right amount of sparkle to this card.  When I found some retired Washi Tape with gold stars, I knew a star sequin would be the perfect finishing touch.








Check out the video tutorial for this card below.

Video: June Online Class Featuring It Starts With Art stamp set--week 2

I must begin this post with an apology.  I'm sorry I have been absent from this blog so much lately  I'm sorry I have not been posting new creations on a regular basis.

I have learned a few things about myself lately.

  • I tend to get fixated on one subject and focus on it at the exclusion of everything else
  • I cannot work in a disorganized space--it may look messy to you no matter what, but I at least need to know where everything is
  • Everything takes me much longer to complete than I think it will
  • I get overwhelmed with too much of anything and need to be able to slow down and focus on one new, exciting thing at a time
  • Too much creative excitement and newness causes my creative brain to shut down much like too much action in movies causes me to fall asleep.   Overload = Shut down
  • Once a space is cleaned off and I start crafting, creativity, peace, and joy come flooding back
The good news is now that I've identified what causes the shut down or feeling like I've lost my mojo, I can do something to prevent or correct it.  :)

What causes a shut down for you?




This week's card uses a design from a challenge in April.  Both cards used a Coastal Cabana card base along with Follow Your Art DSP.  Both use the spools of ribbon stamp with paper piecing of the ribbons.  The sparkle is added with wink of stella and Glittered Enamel Dots.

Video: June Online Class Featuring It Starts With Art stamp set--week 1

Welcome to the first week of a new month, which means a new featured stamp set for my Facebook LIVE online class.  This week is also the launch of the new 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, so I have been busy this week on my Facebook page with a new catalog launch, which has limited the amount of time I've been creating and posting those creations here.  But, I can tell you the combination of limited time to craft along with the reading of Ecclesiastes this week has me kind of down and feeling like "everything is meaningless."  I know that is not true and I also know I should be doing more creating and focusing on positivity as I move forward.  So, that is the plan for the future  I started today by taping the creation of this card and I've already felt the peace and joy that comes when I am creating and have my hands on paper, stamps, and ink.  The name of this month's featured stamp set couldn't be more perfect . . .


It Starts With Art

During the video I promised you would get a chance to see the finished interior here.  So, here it is.  After I had it finished and glued inside the card, I thought it would be perfect to use the Aquapainter to add a watercolor wash to the card interior.  If you get a chance to try that, please send me pictures of your amazing finished projects.  I also added a felt heart post video to the front of the card.  I thought it was the perfect finishing touch.

Video: May Online Class Featuring Needle & Thread Week 5 BONUS Project

Do you ever want to liven up your crafting with something a little unexpected?

That is what I was looking for this week  Once the idea came to me I have to admit I got a little excited to see it come together.  The card portion is a 3" x 4" card.  But, a smaller card in a smaller envelope doesn't hold the element of surprise.  But, a smaller card adhered to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of cardstock can fit in a standard Stampin' Up! envelope.  And when you open it, surprise!!!  a smaller card attached to the cardstock.



Plus, adding the extra card base gave me an opportunity to add the stitched floral element.  The stamped stitched element on the inside of the card finishes the look.





Check out the video tutorial below:
