Cling stamps & Scotch Tape...

My team, Southern Stars, meeting is this afternoon so yesterday I made my swap cards using this set from the HOLIDAY CATALOG.  While I was working it occurred to me that I might not have told you how I use Scotch Tape with my cling stamps.  Because cling stamps work SO well ~ meaning they really really really stay on that block ~ I use a small piece of tape on the cling side (the illustrated side) in the right hand corner (I trim off the excess tape). So, what does that do?  It gives me a certain place on the stamp that I know I can pry the stamp up from the block without damaging the stamp.  Try it.  Let me know if it works for you.

Wreath Project


One of the Designer Series Papers in the annual catalog is the very colorful SEE A SILHOUETTE DSP on page 166.  It includes the colors of ~ Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White!!!!!  On August 29 I posted a picture of a project from the Stampin' Up! website ~ a fabulous wreath!  A week ago Rosie (my creative sister-in-law) and I got together to make our own wreaths.  Rosie found the actual twig wreaths at a thrift store and then we got busy with the Big Shot and the leaf dies from the SEASONAL LAYERS DIES (page 195 AC ~ coordinates with the stamp set COLORFUL SEASONS on page 56 AC).  The Designer Series Paper is perfect for this project (and it is on sale all this month!!!) ~

Tuesday Project Sheet ~ knot good!

Today's PROJECT SHEET features a stamp set that we all need (because life isn't all roses), BACK ON YOUR FEET, on page 83 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  The sentiments are so worth it.............'This is knot good.',  'Hope you're back on your feet soon.' and "Sometimes that's all there is to say ~ and that I'm here for you."  We can all identify with that, right?
