For sale!!!

A friend of mine is having a yard sale tomorrow and she is selling all of this!!!

I am not a Stampin' Up!  disciple, bit some of this looks pretty awesome.  She is not a crafter, so before she sells this to regular people, I wanted to throw it out to you guys.  If you are interested (??? we all have different styles) give a bid.  Unfortunately, you will have to factor in shipping.  But if you are half-interested, and the stuff doesn't sell, I will send it to you for shipping.

There are at least 50 of these!!! These are in varying states, but from my research, people said that stamp refresher spray works.

Birthday Deer

Made this for a coworker who is a lady, but she is not a girlie-girl:

  • Old DP-- no idea the make
  • The deer is a Hampton Art die cut from some Tim Holtz paper
  • The shield and laurel are from a Tim Holtz Bigz die, cut from some scraps
  • Liquid Pearls all around for a feminine touch... I think it worked!
I'd like to share this at the following challenges:
***So, here's my journalling: I have been tasked with making birthday cards for the staff, and for some this is easy (Teri likes purple, Laura likes killer whales, etc.)... well, Jennifer B. likes to hunt and fish, so I wanted to make a feminine card that embodies her interests.  (I can relate as a tomboy myself...) so it kind of all came together after I selected a neutral pre-cut deer die as the focal, then as soon I found the birthday patterned paper (the black and white background), I chose a pastel green theme.  The final touch was adding the Liquid Pearls, and I think that definitely took it over the top as a girlie-card!

Made this for a family-friend turning 4:

  • Recollections stamps and dino die
  • Background panel made a few months back using DOx on Tim Holtz's resist paper
  • Mat in back is a leftover piece of patterned paper by DCWV
  • On the dino, I inked him with Cracked Pistachio DOx and heat embossed with clear EP by Recollections.  Then I inked him with Mustard Seed DI
  • The sentiment was stamped with Distress embossing ink and heat embossed with Stampendous Stamp-n-stuff in Winter Wonderland (white with silver sparkles) on a scrap of paper from my scrap box.

One cool chick

This is the easy type of project I always envision when I justify buying a new pad!:

This image is to show the cool holographic layer this paper has! 
Hard to see how glittery, but the Pebeo liner rocks.

  • Craft Smith paper pad
  • Core'dinations pink paper
  • Scotch washi tape
  • Pebeo glitter relief liner on the big sunglasses
  • Viva Paper Pearls in Anthracite  as the dots
  • Corners snipped with a Fiskars punch

Dino-mite tag

Made this for my daughter's birthday:

  • Distress tag base inked with Peacock Feathers DI
  • Main panel made by stamping Tim's Scribbles stamp onto some cheap watercolor paper and heat embossing with Recollections in Snow (plain white)
  • Paper then sprinkled with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals and sprayed; adhered to tag
  • The fabulous dino came in a die+ stamp set by Recollections... hadn't used out until this project! I inked the dino with Worn Lipstick DI 2x, then inked it with Distress Embossing Ink and heat embossed with purple EP by Stampendous.
  • Then the dino was inked with Peacock Feathers DI
  • "Dynamite" was inked with Ranger Letter It embossing ink then embossed with Silver Tinsel from the Letter It pack.
  • "It's your day" inked with Ranger Letter It embossing ink then embossed with Recollections EP in Snow on some saved silver packaging
  • The pink glittery eyelash yarn was from Andrea at Snapping Monsters last year ;)
  • The rhinestones were from a pack my sister sent a few years ago now.

Flower graduation

Here another graduation card in the colors of the local high school:

  • Inspired By Stamping plumerias from the set of that name inked with Distress Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Custer's Last Stamp Silver EP on green paper from DCWV
  • The vellum circle was cut from thick vellum packaging
  • The silver background and silver that the sentiment was cut from is also saved packaging
  • The sentiment is by Tim Holtz
Pretty simple.

Golden 2018

...and here is a girlie graduation card:


  • The background polka dot paper was pre-cut on my scrap box. Don't recall who designed it.
  • The circle was cut from some rad vellum packaging using a die that Autumn sent (thanks!)
  • The numbers are by HLS, and Autumn also sent those to me! Thanks! I heat-embossed them using the Gold Tinsel from the Letter It pack.
  • I added sequins from designer packs... packaging long gone.  I used Glossy Accents to adhere them.
  • I mounted the whole thing to some nice parchment that seems to match the vellum well.
