New Technique - Faux Metal

There is a great new technique that is not only fun - it's exciting.  Take a look at Faux Metal Embossing:


This technique is easy to do and only requires Brushed Silver or Gold Cardstock, a great stamp set, Embossing powder, a Heat Tool and a punch if you want to punch out the design like the one on this card.

You can use your images as accessories for your cards and/or even add Ribbon to give an added look as I have one here. The options are endless.

Contact me Today to book a workshop and I'll demonstrate this technique for you and your friends.



Thank You!

  Thanks so much for the positive comments I received yesterday about my newsletter announcements & the new blog!  I so appreciate hearing from you!
    Some of you may have tried to download the pdf file of the catalog and had a difficult time.  Download time is much faster now (than it was yesterday - a really busy day for Stampin' Up!).  It should take less than five minutes now ~ rather than hours and hours!  So, if you are not close enough to come to my Open House, or if your schedule doesn't permit it, which means you won't have your REAL catty soon, please click on 'download' and then:  (1) make yourself a cup of tea (2) get a BIG pad of pretty paper (for that l-o-n-g wish list) and (3) a pen.  When you have all that come back to your computer, sit down and get ready to have an awesome time!

The New Catalog is HERE!

Fallwintercattyus_2 The new Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog is HERE!  Stampin' Up! continues to offer great stamp sets and accessories, did I tell you that this is there 20th year in business?  I know you are going to love what you see in the new catty - new designer series papers, new punches, and new in-color card stock, stamp pads and striped grosgrain ribbon!  Best of all, the new stamp sets are all DIE CUT!  YOU don't have to cut out your stamps, just push out and push on those little blocks of wood!  Now, that's a time saver!

If you don't already have a connection with a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator that you buy from, I would be happy to send you a copy of our Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog FREE (a $9.95 value).  Just send me your name, address & phone number.  I will mail your catty to you and follow-up with you every three months by phone. 

Contact me to get yours today.
