Lots of Stampin' going on here in Florida

Here's some updates.....

My knee is undergoing Physical Therapy and still limited walking!   My "pimple" on my back was actually a cyst and had it removed removed a few days ago, stitches to come out in 10 days!

I did not win Powerball :(. You gotta play to win and I forgot to play....  I would have given most of it away anyway.   

Since I am limited on my walking I have been doing lots of stamping...  New products from the Occasions and Sale A Bration  (SAB) catalogs.  Now if I could get my computer working faster, I would have had this post done yesterday!

I started a Facebook group, it's a closed group and if you want to join, you must let me know either comment here or check me out on Facebook, Stampin' with Stampergirl.   This group is a "Bingo" of sorts..... Every Thursday at 8pm, you pick and post 5 numbers from 1 to 75 (under my post saying post your numbers).  You will have from 8 pm to 810 pm to post your numbers.  At 810 pm I will start a new post calling numbers, when all your numbers have been posted, you comment below the last number, "Bingo".  You will win the prize that I have made or decided to give out that day.  The prizes are going to be either finished cards or projects made with products from the Occasions and SAB least for now, I might change my mind at some point and have Stampin Up merchandise.     

Here are the cards that went to the first winner last Thursday, my Mom won....since there was some confusion this first time, I have sent each of the other participants each one of the cards....
This first card uses Flowering Fields - from the (SAB) catalog...Demonstrators who atteneded an OnStage event in many states received this one for FREE.  I mounted mine while I was still at the event in Baltimore knowing I could not wait to use it.  I stamped the image on whisper white cardstock and colored the images in with my markers and a blender pen on the melon mambo flower. I cut the butterfly out by hand and used the greeting from the stamp set, Enjoy the Little Things in the Occasions catalog and attached both using dimensionals.

This 2nd one, uses the Heart framelit and coordinating Stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.   I wasn't going to get this framelit, but a customer wanted to use it for her party next week, so I relented......OH I am so glad for her wanting to use that for her party!!!   After a few "broken hearts" in the trash, I figured out the best sandwich and plate for the optimum result.    I used the magnetic platform, with the precision plate (yes, I said I wasn't getting that either) magnetic side up, the cardstock, the heart framelit - cutting side down - and then one cutting pad on top.   I ran it thru the Big Shot, 6 passes total.   Then took the framelit and the cardstock still attached to it, and used the brush tool and foam pad that the brush comes with and brushed over a few times and all the tiny pieces came out and I just flicked the heart once to get the last bits out...   I ended up cutting 10 hearts out and took me about 20 minutes.  A great workout for your biceps!!!
I cut this heart out of a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of whisper white cardstock so that I could put the heart back in when I got all the little pieces out.   I added some Watermelon Wonder ribbon to tie in with the cardstock and ink and added some pearls.  I cut the greeting out by hand since I do not own the framelits to cut it out (yet) and put it onto the card with dimensionals.

This 3rd card uses the Sky is the Limit from the SAB catalog.   I knew the minute I saw it, at the Onstage Event - another perk to being a demo, we got to see the new catalogs early and  even receive some of the products from those catalogs FREE...... I also used the World Traveler embossing folder from the Occasions Catalog.  I cut the airplane out by hand and attached to the Soft Suede 2 1/2 circle using dimensionals.

I swear I use dimensionals for almost every card I make.   Where would I be without them?  trying to poke those cheapy ones I used to buy at the box stores out, only to have to waste a few, plus time and frustration with them.  

You guys are probably thinkin'   - what the heck?   this is a long post!   Yep, it is.   Sorry but I didn't want to leave too much out.  I didn't list the cardstock or the sizes of each, but if you have questions, please contact me.   AND if you want to play Bingo on fb next Thursday, friend me on fb so that I can add you, or text or call me.

Here are the items I used, if you want to purchase any of these items, you can either go to my website and order or contact me to matter how you order, if you order totals $50 before shipping and tax, you receive a choice of one item from the SAB catalog, so if you are close to that amount, and need an idea of what to add to = $50, contact me.   Don't forget to use Hostess Code, RHRPRZWK, for the month of January to get in on the drawing for some FREE Stampin' Goodies, unless your order is $150 before S+T, then you get all the hostess benefits and don't use the Hostess Code.

  1. Our mutual friend Frances said she got the idea for online Bingo from another demo. Was it you? I sat in on Frances's last week and it was lots of fun. I'm sure yours is, too.

    I completely relate to your comment about using Stampin' Dimensionals on every card. Lately, it feels like I do that, too.

  2. No, I got the idea from her, she had seen it from another demo.
