This is a wonderful time of year.  Don't forget to watch the mini series "The Bible" Sunday evening on the History Channel.  It will have the Crucifixion and Resurrection.  This series is well done.  I've watched it from the beginning.  I'll miss it when it is over.  

Here is an adorable card Lisa Gray taught at our March Stamp Camp South.  Isn't it cute?  It is done completely with punches, framelits, embossing folder and dies.  Love how sweet it is.

Hope you are having a good day. 

Happy Stamping, Judy   :)

Introducing:  Polymer Stamps!

We've searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we've found it. We're excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options.

Mini Trading Cards - By the Tide & Tea Shoppe

I made these mini trading cards [ 2 1/2" x 1 1/2"] last night for a swap.  The rabbit and lace aren't SU but everything else is.  I used glitter and rhinestones on all three.

By the Sea:  Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, 
                     Marina Mist, crystal effects, dimensionals.

Tea Shoppe:  Whisper White, Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black,
                      Paper Snips, Jewelry Tag Punch, Sticky Tape, dimensionals.  

It's a beautiful day today...bright blue skies, tons of snow, and snow covered pine trees,
and no snow on the streets.  It's springtime on Colorado.

Happy Stamping!   Judy  :)

Greenhouse Garden

I came across this card I stamped but hadn't put together.  It was from a Stamp Camp where a fellow demonstrator didn't have time to finish her demonstrator cards so I don't remember who it was.  Judging by the colors, this card was waiting for me to finish it since last fall...or the fall before that.  It's never too late to finish a pretty card.  :)    This wonderful card was the idea of my friend,  Sandy MacFarlane.  Thanks Sandy for letting me know!  You deserve lots of credit for this great design.  :)

Stamps:  Greenhouse Garden
CS:  Cajun Craze, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink:  Dusty Durango, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Basic Black
Ribbon:  Dusty Durango Dotted Ribbon
Accessories:  Big Shot, Top Note Bigz Die, Little Leaves Sizzlet, Punch is a mystery, 
          Paper Trimmer, Sponge Dauber, Paper Snips, SU Dimensionals

Happy Stamping!    Judy   :)

Trifold Flower Card with a Tag

It's a beautiful snowy day today so I had time to finish a couple of projects we started at our Rubber Ducky Stamp Group last Friday evening.  Pat Stevens was our project leader and everyones' cards look completely different from each other.  Pat brought a ton of stamps and lots of packs of designer paper.  I chose to just go with the stamps.  It would have been easier if I used the DSP but I stamped myself silly.  I made two trifold cards with ribbon closures.

Here is a scan of the front of the card closed.

Here is a scan of just the front opened up.  I placed a tag on the un-decorated side to give it some interest.

Here is a scan of the card completely opened.  There is a tag sitting in a pocket at the bottom of the center panel.  I like how it turned out.  I haven't added ribbon to it yet.  

I used one flower stamp for everything.  It's not Stampin' Up! but I don't know what company it is from.  The funny thing is I was loving the Marvy Matchable ink I used but didn't have access to it at home so pulled out my Stampin' Up! pads and our Baja Breeze is the same color.  I would not have guessed that.  Anyway, I used Island Indigo and Basic Black card stock for my layers.  The ribbon used is from the Sale-a-bration FREE items called Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack.

I had an extra stamped image so made another card that is 5" x 7".  

I used Island Indigo and Basic Black card stock for my layers and Whisper White card stock for the main card and inside.  The Designer Series Paper is Pocket Full of Posies.  The main image is popped up.  I think I didn't appreciate Baja Breeze until now.  

Happy Stamping!   Judy   :)

SU Introduces Photopolymer Stamp Sets

What makes them so great?
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity? 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

The Fine Print

  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
  • Available on all order types beginning March 1, 2013. 
  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.  
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.
 Photopolymer_marchStamp Set  -  DESIGNER TYPESET
Order #:  132956
Price:  $13.95

Use this exclusive photopolymer alphabet set (with extras!) for titles or embellishments on scrapbook pages, cards, or any type of project. We recommend clear block sizes A, B, G, F, and I (not included in the set).

Once you start playing around with this stamp set, it’s  hard  stopping.  So many witty one-liners, so little time.
 Click HERE if you'd like to order this set, or EMAIL me at with your order.

Don't Forget - SALE-A-BRATION  ends March 22nd.

Happy Stamping!   Judy   :)
