Home Decor

Hey everyone!  Welcome to the Stamp-Patty's Blog!!  If you came here from Judy's site, then you are in the right place!  It is time for another of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hops!!

This month, our theme is Home Decor!  You are in for some incredible works of art!  Be sure to visit all 13 sites for plenty of inspiration!!

 I LOVE the banner kits that Stampin' Up! offers! I have created many themed banners and rotate them through the house as the season or holiday changes!

Today I am sharing my St. Patrick's banner with you all.  I thought it was the perfect time to share my leprechaun made from our awesome punches.
 Punches Used for Leprechaun:

  • 1-1/4" circle
  • 1" square
  • mini heart
  • word window
  • 1/8" circle 
  • 1-3/8" scallop circle
  • Boho Blossom punch

Using our banner kit and garden green ink and cajun craze ink I used sponge daubers and the stencils to put the background on the canvas banners.

I used our spritzers filled with isopropyl alcohol and garden green ink refill to color our lace paper doilies!  They added the right amount of beauty!!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Hop on over to Lee's site now for your next dose of inspiration!

Irresistibly Yours

Hey everyone!  Welcome to another of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hops!!   This month we are sharing some of the incredible accessories that are available in Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration 2015!!!

If you've joined me from Judy's site, you are in the right place!  If you are just getting started, you are in for a great tour of Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration Accessory Items!!

I have decided to focus my project with the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Paper!

I'm showing you a closer view of the focal point of this card!  Can you see the background paper that looks like scallops?  This is the incredible paper that I mentioned earlier!  This paper is available for FREE with any $50 order until March 30, 2015!!!

It is a full package (12 x 12) paper with 12 sheets containing 6 designs!  You get 2 sheets of each design!  This white paper has a glossy white pattern that is perfect for coloring using a variety of techniques and/or products!  Coloring the paper reveals the pattern!  It is magical!!

To get this nice heavy color, I used my brayer and Lost Lagoon ink and brayered the piece of paper. I then used a dry paper towel to remove the ink from the embossed pattern.  The ink remains on the paper!!

Like the stamp image too?  This is another of our superb Sale-A-Bration items!  This stamp set can also be gotten for FREE with a $50 order!!!  What are you waiting for?  Time is moving quickly...before you know it, all of these great FREEBIES will be gone!  Go to my online store using the links below and get you order placed now!  Then hop on over to Lee's site to see what she has prepared for you!

Thought I would share a recent photo of our Hopping Group!  We were able to meet up at the Stampin' Up! Leadership conference a few weeks ago in Orlando, FL!

Left to Right:  Judy Garza, Patty Chenail, Carol Payne, Janet Wakeland, BJ Peters, Laura Milligan, Lee Conrey, and Jodi Reinert.  France Martin was in attendance; however, we missed her for the photo!

Wonderful Friend

What kind of a reaction do you think if you sent this beautiful card to your BFF?

I'll tell you that if someone sent this to me, I would feel like the most special person in the world!

Sending and receiving cards is VERY special!  Too bad we don't do it often enough!

Why not come to one of my classes, make a few cards and make yourself and others feel awesome?!

I created this project for my monthly Blendability class that was held last Monday.  Our colors for the month of January were Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi. This stamp set is one of our Photopolymer sets.  It is called, "You're Wonderful".  This is a very simple and elegant card that uses only a half sheet of whisper white cardstock and a scrap piece of white cardstock for the floral image!  After coloring, I cut it out and used dimensionals to mount it to the card.

Hello Life

Hey there stamping friends!

Couldn't wait to share my latest home decor project!  This is such an awesome idea!  Who would have thought that a black wire rack could make such a great show piece?!!

I created this project in under 2 hours!  It was fun and certainly looks awesome on display in my home!

It was created using a brand new kit from the Stampin' Up!  Occasions Catalog!

Wanna make one with me?
