23.4 lbs. of Fun – Part 2

Hallelujah, Glory Be To Our Great God!  Can’t stop humming that song from our worship service this morning.  I hope that you and your family also enjoyed an awesome Sunday worship. 

Latisha Yoast, aka 1busymomof2, is being honored this week as the Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers.  If you have a chance, drop by and take a gander at her amazing gallery.  If you aren’t already checking out SCS and the amazing creations and tutorials and just about everything under the sun…go right now and take a look.  Lots of great ideas, card and scrapbook sketches…you get the picture.  I would love for you to browse through my gallery on SCS too…..Lost in the 60’s.

Now, to further honor Latisha, I have chosen one of her creations to CASE (Copy and Share Everything), changing an item or two to make it my own.  I chose to CASE this card.

And, as Part 2 of 23.4 lbs. of Fun…I am using a bunch of brand new stuff from Stampin’ Up! including my very favorite new stamp set Just Believe.  I predict this awesome set of 9 be around for a very long time.  I’ve included a picture of the set.  Also used, for the first time, Presto Patterns Specialty Designer Paper. It’s the pinkish layer behind the image.  I sponged it with Blushing Bride ink and like magic, err, Presto!, the pattern appeared and it is GORGEOUS.  Can’t wait to demonstrate this at my next workshop.  More new stuff Pear Pizazz stamp pad and ribbon and the Blushing Bride ribbon, plus the Pearl accents.  All in all, it was a pretty easy card to make…but IRL (In Real Life) it is stunning.  Take a look:

Give me a shout if you want to learn how to make this pretty all occasion card.  Hope your weekend is continuing to be peaceful and restful.

It’s Friday!  Weekend on the way!  Even though I am retired and now a full-time homemaker, I still look forward to the weekends.  I am always excited about the Sunday morning message and having the freedom to worship our Savior without penalty or threat.  Our God is an awesome God, He reigns!!!

I am just crazy about these two stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!– Trendy Trees and Forest Friends.  They are among the least expensive sets, but I knew right away they would get a lot of inkin’ from me.  This card is for Beate’s Fresh and Fun Weekend Sketch Challenge and I chose to use  four of the new In Colors.  I didn’t think much of the colors until I made a few cards and now I think they are terrific.  Soft Suede is a real keeper and Bermuda Bay- yumm, yumm!

Thy Word In Color

I hosted my first official workshop as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator this week and had five sweet and fun gals come to my home for a play date – Amy, Linda, Dianne, Judy and Colleen.  When I was working on the demo cards earlier in the week, I decided that a scripture card would always be one of the sample cards for all my workshops.  Whatever talent I may have comes from the master Creator and I want to praise Him in all that I do- and that includes teaching others.  I’ve used this verse from Psalms on other cards, but as I was “building” this card it immediately came to mind.  The sketch is also a near catty case.

I also used some of the awesome new In Colors.  I wasn’t sure that I was going to like them at first, but fell in love with them after this card.  I made a little easel to go on the back so that the card is free-standing when not in my Scripture box.  I also highlighted the daisies with a white gel pen.  When I finished I was worried that it may be too aggressive for virgin stampers- but I knew that these gals were already very creative and that they would enjoy a little challenge at the end of the evening.  And they did a terrific job on this card.

 This little easel was so easy to make.  The card is A2, front only.  I cut the cardstock 3.75 X 5 and scored the long end at 1”.  I measured 1.25’ from the top of the card and drew a line with a pencil from side to side.  Then folded on the score line and attached along the line (centered on the back) with sticky strip.  The same formula would work for any size card.
