Easy Halloween Card

Hello Everyone,

Halloween is quickly approaching. Ghosts and Ghouls are around the corner! One of my favorite suites from this catalog is the Monster Bash Suite Bundle. This suite is great for almost all of your Halloween needs. It has little coffin food-safe treat boxes that are perfect to hold some spooky goodies for your friends for family.  I also love the Ornate Frame die set and the Stylish Scroll Embossing folder. These items are great for year-round projects as well, I love both of them on Christmas cards.

Prevent Staining using the Stamp Cleaning Pad

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to week two of Wash ‘Em Wednesday! This week I will show you how to clean your stamps so that they do not get stained after using inks such as Blackberry Bliss or Cherry Cobbler.

Stamp Cleaning Pad

Stamp Cleaning Pad • 147047 $7.50 Stamp Cleaning Pad Refill • 149661 $3.75

It is important to note that after using this to clean your stamps rinse with water IMMEDIATELY as a way to protect the adhesive on the cling label. I like to take mine to the sink after and rinse with water. This way I can also clean my blocks at the same time.

I like to use my Stamp Cleaning Pad after using dark colors especially reds, as these are the colors that seem to stain my photopolymer and cling stamps.

Blackberry bliss stampin pad

I love to stamp with this color but it stains easily. As a result, after I am completely done stamping I will clean my stamps first using the Cleaning Pad. Next, I will take them to the sink   I find that it really works to keep the stains at bay.

Here is a YouTube video that I put together to show you just how easy it is to use the Stamp Cleaning Pad!

Rustic Retreat Christmas Card

Hello Everyone,

October is just beginning and it is the perfect time to start making your Christmas Cards to send out to your family and friends. I love seeing all of the winter and Christmas stamp sets in the Annual and Holiday catalogs. One of my favorites from the Annual catalog is the Rustic Retreat stamp set. The set was inspired by million-dollar earner Mary Polcin.

Rustic Retreat Stamp Set

Rustic Retreat Cling Stamp Set 150285 Price: $24.00 You can step into nature with the Rustic Retreat Stamp Set. This set offers an idyllic setting for creating beautiful moments with its uplifting sentiments and fun forest images, including a friendly bear.  Click on the image to view it in my store.

I love how Stampin’ Up! gives you a background stamp and foreground stamps to make your own little holiday scenes. In addition, I love the fonts that are in this set, it makes it so that it can easily be used for masculine or feminine cards.

You can even add color to the stamps to give your project a clean and professional look.

Today’s Project

In today’s project, I am using the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper. Without a doubt, the greens in the paper make for a great Christmas card.

Christmas Card using Rustic Retreat

It is important to note that I received this card as part of a Holiday Swap between demonstrators and I loved it so much that I decided to case it (Copy And Share Everything). I love how the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper really pops and works well with the Rustic Retreat stamp set.

This is a simple card but there are ways to take it to the next level such as using the blends to color the house or using an embossing folder to add dimension to the project.

Here is a prerecorded Facebook live video to show you how to put this fun project together.

My Granddaughter joined us during our FaceBook Live. She is truly a joy and so excited to stamp.
