Check out my Video on the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder

Have you tried the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder yet? OMG! Here are the two cards I made using the folder two different ways. Which one do you like better?

The Hey Chick, Sale-a-bration stamp (you can get this set FREE with a $50 order through 3-31-17), set is perfect to use with this embossing folder. When I think of chickens, I think chicken wire, do you? LOL!

Cutting Guide:

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Delightful Dijon cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
4" x 5 1/4" Delightful Dijon
1 1/2" x 4" Urban Underground dsp
Scraps of Watercolor Paper, Real Red cardstock

Supply List:

The brayer I have listed is discontinued. I tried the Foam Brayer and it doesn't work for this technique.

Still time to sign up for my Valentine Sampler Class. Email me if you are interested,

Valentine Sampler Class

I know, you probably think I fell off the face of the earth.......Embellishment Shares are now done and in the mail. I'm slowly getting caught up. Whew.......The weather here in Northern California has been delaying our orders, (Lots of rain, which we need). Thank goodness we have had no issues like flooding. I kept telling myself as the dogs mucked up my floors, we have nothing to be upset about.....

I was waiting for my 12 x 12 Real Red Cardstock to finish my sampler. It came with all my other boxes but just didn't have time to put it all together. So now its done. Doesn't it look great with my Pool Party walls? If you would have told me that I would like Real Red and Pool Party together a couple of years ago, I would have said NO. But now I love them together. In fact if you look at page 14 of the Occasions Catalog, you will see how well they go together with the Sealed with Love Bundle. I didn't use any Pool Party for my sampler, its all Real Red and White.

Valentine Sampler Class
Saturday, January 28th, 10-1pm
Cost: $20 and does NOT include the frame
RSVP: 1-26-17
Email me: if you would like to attend.

Its always hard to take a photo with glass because of the glare. So I took a couple with out the glass.

 Here is a close up. I will have all the pieces die cut for you.

Dragonfly Dreams Bundle Thank you Cards

It's time for the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge. You can play along too:, Embossing with folders or heat is the challenge this week.

The Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (#144728) is a MUST have! The dies do all the work for you. Find this set on page 26 of the Occasions Catalog.

I paired up the Dragonfly Dreams bundle with the All Things Thanks stamp set, (#143097) and the Falling Petals Embossing Folder (#142761) and you have a winner. LOL! I also used the Neutrals Designer Series Paper, (#138435), Crumb Cake (#120953) card base and the Dragonfly is die cut with Blushing Bride, (#131198). I love Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride together.

I "winked" my dragonfly's with Clear Wink of Stella, (#141897), wish you could see it in the photo. I think my dragonfly needs some Rhinestones, (#119246), will have to add them. The sentiment is punched with the Triple Banner Punch, (#138292). I honestly don't know what I'd do without this punch. The banner ends are so popular right now. I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso Ink.

Tip: Make sure you stamp your dots BEFORE you emboss your Whisper White cardstock.

Cutting Guide:

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Crumb Cake cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
4" x 5 1/2" Neutrals Designer Series Paper (Crumb Cake Stripped)
3 3/4" x 5 1/2" Whisper White cardstock, embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder
1 1/8" x 3 3/8" Whisper White cardstock for sentiment
Scrap of Blushing Bride for your dragonfly

Make sure you check out all the entries for this challenge:

On another note; I want to thank you for ALL the Birthday Wishes. It was truly amazing to wake up to my email filled up with birthday wishes on Saturday. Several of you placed orders and took advantage of my "birthday special" FREE Lace Doilies. I will be ordering them this week and they will go out with your Thank you card. Thank you all so much for supporting my Stampin' Up! Business. I truly appreciate every one of you.

It's My Birthday Week-end

And I'd like to give you a gift for your $50 or more order. My husband always says he has a birth MONTH not a Birth DAY, so I thought I'd have a Birth Week-end, LOL! Not only will you get a FREE Sale-a-bration item, but you will also receive with your thank you card a package of the Lace Doilies on page 51 of the Occasions Catalog. Have you seen how beautiful they are? One side is white the other is vanilla. And did you know you can color them any color you want? Yep, I bet our Sponge Brayer would be even better (less messy) than a sponge.
I have a tip when you emboss your bag: Fold down the top about an inch or so, then put inside the embossing folder and run it through your big shot. Otherwise the bag is too big and the bottom will be bare. Make sense? You would have laughed at me when I was getting ready to emboss my bags. Thinking, there is no way this is going to work.....hello, fold down the top and it works perfect. Do you talk to yourself when you're crafting? I do.
This was one of the Make n takes we did at my Catalog Launch Party on Saturday. Used all my favorite new products, (at least for this week.....). I think this was the favorite of all three, the other two were cards. I will be showing them within the next week.

  • Sealed with Love Bundle, stamp set and matching Framelits
  • Sending Love Designer Series Paper 6 x 6 paper stack
  • Sending Love Embellishments
  • Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack 
  • Falling Petals Embossing Folder
And don't forget to "wink" your hearts with Wink of Stella. You can see a little bit of the shimmer in the red heart strip on the left. Those little envelopes are just so cute too. This bundle is amazing. You still have time to order yours for your Valentine's. You can click on any of the photos below and it will take you to my Online Store.

When placing your online order, please use this hostess code: TY6KGFT4, unless your order is $150 or more, then you keep the Hostess Rewards.

You have until Sunday night midnight (pacific time, US only) to qualify for your FREE Lace Doilies. Cannot be combined with any other past specials. Ready, set go!

Deliverys are Being Delayed

Good Morning everyone,

Just a quick post to let you know that all deliveries are being postponed due to the weather conditions in several states.

Not only are the orders being delayed, it also means my Embellishment Share is being delayed as well as my free gift for ordering the Watercolor Pencils and the samples of the dsp and ribbon in the SAB catalog.

So please know they are coming, but later than I had anticipated.

Thank you for your continued support of my Stamping Business.
