Dragonfly Dreams Stampin' Up! Emboss Resist

WOW another post - Yep I have been stamping almost everyday.   How about you?   It is a fun pastime and very relaxing.

Today I did FaceTime with a longtime friend (52 years!) stamper and customer.   We now live 1000 miles apart and since it is winter....I am staying put in Sunny/Warm Florida.  I miss stamping with my friends, and of course I miss my daughters and grandchildren....  Getting ready for a visit from one daughter and two grandchildren!   but today, I got some stamping done.

Emboss Resist is my Favorite technique of all time!   What is your favorite technique?

Today, my friend Joyce and I did FaceTime and we each made a Sketch Challenge card.   We used Paper and Ink Challenges #11.

I used Dragonfly Dreams Bundle, Oh So Succulent stamp, and Heartfelt Sympathy stamp sets.  I also used Falling in Love Designer Series Paper, Dimensionals, Stitched Framelits, Layering Oval Framelits.   The colors used are the ones in the Designer Series Paper -- Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to pick colors to go with one another.   The colors are Blushing Bride Cardstock and ink, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Soft Sky and Sahara Sand inks.  AND of course a sponge wedge for each color ink  that I used.



Share - what is your favorite technique?

Stampin' with Stampin' Up! Stamps and past class card kits

A fun day of Stampin' with Mom and Adela.   I had many card kits leftover from classes, so we CASEd them using some of the same stamps, others using different stamps.

What a fun and productive day


When you are trying to figure out what kind of card to make...sometimes the best way is to take some card parts you have from another creating and pick a stamp and start stamping....

Give it a try!

Need more information ??? Contact me via email, sbjcarol@yahoo.com, leave a comment here or go to my website and order



Today I am working on a birthday card for my son in law and I want to get it in the mail today!

I looked through my box of card kits, these are kits left over from my clubs or classes, and I found one to make.

Do you have any card kits sitting around in a box at home?   Take them out and see what you can make.   Here is the original card on the left....on the right is the card I made today...  It uses the Traveler Stamp set - a great set for masculine, teen cards.  I also used an old stamp set, World Map.   


Tomorrow I plan on taking some other card kits and creating different cards with them.   Give it a try!
