Stamping Tips & Techniques

Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies by Stampin’ Up!

Mary BeersWho doesn't love to get a beautiful card that is created just for you?  I remember receiving hand crafted cards at my wedding.

Weddings are such a fun event to make your own card to give the happy couple!  Here is a beautiful example of a card by Mary Beers.  (She is a member of the Diva & Dude Stampers and attended the Stamp & Share that I attended June 18!)

I have this and many other great card samples to show you from the new Stampin' Up! 2016-17 Catalog.  Contact me to set a date for your own workshop or to attend my next card class, July 22, 2016.

We get together on a quarterly basis and share business ideas and then spend time stamping cards!  We each create a card to share with other demonstrators and I came home with some awesome new card ideas. I will be posting new card ideas every week so be watching for the latest post!

As a kid, I loved to draw and color.  Now as an adult, I love to add art to my cards and projects using the Watercolor Technique.  (Click on Watercolor Technique to take you there!)  This is a sample of the technique that was shown on the Stampin' Up! website with a tutorial showing you how to do this at home!

The watercolor technique is such a great way to add some fun to your cards.  I found this video on the Stampin' Up! blog ( and wanted to share it with you.  Click here to watch the video if the video link below won't work.
