Tuesday Project Sheet

You can find this fabulous FANCY FLORA 6" x 6" DSP on page 15 in the January Mini Catalog and, no kidding, you will think that you just laid down your brush and that you have been painting all morning!  It's amazing!  And, besides the paper, the SOMETHING FANCY BUNDLE has loads of wonderful sentiments that we can use every day!  You'll love it!  In the meantime, this card is easy peasy and, just by changing the sentiment, it can be appreciated by anyone for any occasion, life event or just because!  Enjoy!

Adorable Owls!!


Card design by Missy Shipman!

I think that this is one of the cutest cards that I have made in a long time and all the credit goes to my friend (and fellow demonstrator) Missy Shipman.  Missy is the very talented leader of the "Linked By Ink" group of Stampin' Up! stampers.  We served on the 2011-12 Advisory Board of Stampin' Up! together.  This card uses the darling SALE-A-BRATION stamp set, Adorable Owls ~

IMG_9235and the Designer Series Paper, FLOWERS & MORE, on page 90 in the Mini Catalog.  This is a slimline card.  You can find SLIMLINE ENVELOPES on page 137 in the annual catalog or you can use a business size envelope.  We will be using this stamp set in our FEBRUARY STAMP CLUBS to make another darling owl card!  I can't wait!!!

Guest Artist: Kelly Fidler

Creative Kelly has been in my Tuesday night stamp club for a number of years (I am not sure how many).  Recently the members of the club were challenging each other about the number of cards that they created ~ all in fun, of course ~ and, the magic number seemed to be SIX at a time.  So, Kelly sent this picture ~ don't you love it???  The stamp set, SEAS THE DAY, is from the January - June 2022 Mini Catalog.  Thanks for sharing, Kelly!

From Kelly ~

I cased it from Pinterest but we brought back the baby wipe technique! So you just take a little wet baby wipe and put drops of three different colors of ink on it and use that as your ink pad. Fun!

Alison Sloven solving problems ...

Alison is a Canadian demonstrator who has been having trouble using the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  She provides information in this video about how she uses the plates and I thought that it might be helpful to those of you who have this mini machine.  I don't use mine often because I have two of the regular size machines that never get put away.  I hope this is helpful for some of you.  Let me know what you think.  Wednesday hugs, se
