The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen  or even touched.  They must be felt with the heart.



Playing around with some DSP, Corrugated DTIF, and STILL NIGHT Bundle, I had a hard time deciding where to put the “thinking of you”.   I decided it was busy enough without it and ended up with the first design.  I love that little owl – just a hint of color with a sponge dauber, he sits perfectly on the versatile copper branch ready to pounce on his dinner.  I like the touch of copper metallic pearls which give it just enough pizzazz.  I posted the supplies below for both projects if you want to add this combination to your craft room.

Here is another card creation that I CASED from a Demonstrator Website and changed it up just a bit to personalize it….however, I loved the original just as is!!!  Here is my slightly changed version.

Merry Merlot has become one of my favorite colors this season…and oh that double sided ribbon goes so well with the DSP!  I layered several blank die cuts of the owl so it stands out quite a bit from the frame.  The photo does not do it justice.  I also colored the owl with Stampin’ Blends – the original was stamped in smokey slate with no coloring.  I love the DSP and how the branches in copper foil frame Mr. Owl.  I separated the supplies used for each card so you can see them easier.  The SUPPLIES for this card begin at the top of the list and end with the Nature’s Poem DSP .  I hope that is not too confusing.

Thanks for stopping by today for this mid-week idea.  Please remember to sign up for the next buffet on November 13th – hurry…we are ALMOST full!   We’ll be making cards with BEAUTIFUL BLIZZARD  set offered from November 1-November 30th only!!!  Watch for details on my Stampiin’ Up webpage.

I hope you take a minute to comment…your effort to do that is greatly appreciated.

Hi Stampers!

There are so many ideas out there that I love.  isn’t it great that in Stampin’up we can take someone else’s idea and embellish it, change the colors, the sentiment, … to make it your own = CASE = Copy and Share with Everyone.

Remember that EASY PEASY card from the September buffet?  I love the DSP and all the colors but it was a bit bland for me so I played with it and embellished it with some scraps, metallic thread, heat embossing, a button and it’s a whole new card.  You can do it too!  Just play with textures, colors, scraps, ribbon, some bling, etc. until it makes your heart sing.   It’s Fun!!!  Here are a few examples – can you find the original??


LIKE and LEAVE A COMMENT:   If you’ve been reading my Facebook posts, you’ve noticed my request for you to like the post and leave a comment.   If you haven’t done so already you may want to do it because I will enter the names in a drawing for a prize…watch for details but GET IN THE HABIT NOW -you never know when there will be a surprise drawing!!!  The more Likes with comments on Facebook and my Blog, the more chances to win!!!  


  • REDEEM YOUR BONUS POINTS BEFORE SEPTEMBER 30TH! – check your email for the codes and put them in the appropriate place when you enter your credit card for payment.
  • CLEARANCE RACK – things are going fast…take a quick peek to see if there is anything you need at FABULOUS PRICES.
  • Sign up for the next buffet October 9th – invite a friend to stamp with you – it’s more fun! Remember if you bring a friend for the first time, you only pay $5 for the class…now where else can you make a handmade card for a $1?
  • Make a birthday card for Meera – it’s her birthday on October 9th.  Bring your card with you so we can give her a card shower! We plan to have goodies for everyone!

Heading into WINTER WOODS!


Just a quick post on the card that we made at the September buffet with the Winter Woods Bundle.  There are so many possibilities with this set….it reminds me of Lovely as a Tree.   The last picture I posted was poor at best…this is a better one.  I’m not sure about the “twig tree”.   it actually looks better in real life than in the photograph.  I’m working on one with a snowy pine and maybe some of that new shimmer paint.  Please leave a note in the comment section if you are interested.

Good MONDAY Morning Stampers,

Your patience is greatly appreciated as our blog is still under construction. Sharing a few photos from our buffet this past Tuesday and some card projects that some of us are working on.  Everyone went home with the new catalog.   Let  me know if you want to make tabs for yours so I can bring my circle tab punch. Also if you want to CASE  a particular card from the new catalog please let me know in advance.  There is also a great special at the bottom of this blog which may spark your interest.





Diane shared her Gorgeous Butterfly pop up.


There is nothing like a handmade card to  TOUCH A LIFE

THANK YOU for sending cards to Betty Pittman for her 90th Birthday!  Here’s a post from Barbara Palmer, her daughter:90th

Mom wants me to thank everyone who sent her birthday cards! She received 116 (one hundred and sixteen!) in just over a two week period before and after her 90th birthday. She had so much fun (and so did I) reading them and thinking about all of you. Some were from people she did not know thanks to those of you who shared the memo.
We also had a Family party for her on May 19. Almost all the relatives were able to make it. I’m am attaching one of her family (minus two great grand kids who couldn’t be there). Thanks to everyone who came and helped me throw this party! It was great!

Rosie sent this cute dinosaur card to Isaac 

Elaine spent some time  cutting and pasting this interesting guy to cheer Isaac on.

Elaine's card

MY NEW PROJECTS:  Here is a Lift Me UP  card for Isaac – not very whimsical….then my attention shifted to some  vintage cards. I dyed lace with re-inkers to coordinate the colors. Then I  distressed and tinted the paper.  It reminds me of the work I did years ago tinting black and white photographs. Those beautiful peonies in our garden this year have captured my attention…bigger and more beautiful than they have ever been…thanks to Gary! Needless to say they become a central point of my card projects.  I’m also looking for an old rhododendron stamp set that was a hostess gift in 2015.




It’s time for my MONTHLY  Deal!  This deal expires JULY 11TH   at midnight.  You may choose any bundle from the new 2018 ANNUAL catalog and take 15%  off the regular catalog price (which is already at 10% off).  The sale price is only valid on orders placed via email or phone to me.  This is a special sale that I’m personally offering so the website will not reflect my sale price.  No other offers apply.  Call or email me with your order no later than July 11th to take advantage of this sale!

Hello Stampers!

I hope by now you have received my email and/or saw my post on Facebook about sending cards to little Isaac.  He is in intensive care recovering from burns he received in a house fire AND dealing with the loss of his dad in that same fire.  We were asked to shower him with cards to brighten his day.  So I appeal to you again to grab a card you have already made, make one especially for him or for the non-stampers – just send him a card.  It doesn’t have to be fancy – we just need to be on his recovery board from Menomonie.  I also asked that you send me a copy of your card so we can share them with others and to let others know it’s an easy thing to do – sharing the love because we are HeartFelt!

Thank you Elaine Werner for being the first to respond with this delightful card. I am sure it will brighten Isaac’s Day.

Elaine's card

Looking for everyone’s support to cheer up this little guy….there is still time…they expect he will be in the hospital until some time in July. Here’s the address:  Isaac Raue 8JC,     200 Hawking Dr., Iowa City, Iowa 52246.

Have you signed up for Tuesday, June 12th?  Have lots of things I’m working on to make it a fun evening.  I will be going over the things you need to know about the new catalog…if my order is in I may just bring some things along for you to see.   Let me know what time works best for the catalog review since we have an open time schedule for the buffet from 3 to 8!!!!  I was thinking about 5:30 to catch everyone…AND – the new catalog comes with a drawing so come get your tickets and be a winner!

Please be sure to watch my Facebook page for sneak peeks at cards, new video’s from Stampin’ Up on the new kits and Stamparatus….oh what a tool!

See you next week!  Until then Happy Stampin’


Thanks for stopping by.



Lilacs in Bloom!



Good things come to those who wait. (We really had no choice but to wait here in Wisconsin, did we?)  Ironically, this sentiment could be applied to other areas in our life right now too… I’ve heard it said, “God is never late, but He’s rarely early.” His timing is perfect, we remind ourselves.  And the lilacs are right on time…they are bursting open all over this town.  The sight and scent of lilacs remind me that summer is on its way…

I am excited about the card I found to CASE from the Artisan group at Stampin’Up.  It is perfect for making a symmetrical design using the new STAMPARATUS tool which will be available for purchase on June 1st.  Wanna learn how to do it?  check my Facebook page for the video or come to the next Buffet Class on June 12th…sign up NOW so I’m ready for you!

SUPPLIES FOR LILAC CARD: (Some supplies and tools are not listed as they are in the new catalog which will not be available until June 1st! )  I have also listed the bundles for this card that are available NOW and until May 31st .  find the supplies on page 177 and check out the bundles on my Stampin Up website  page.


What a great technique we learned at the last buffet – no two are alike! Here is one for a masculine card and perfect for those Rustic Road Travelers on a bike!  Use it for birthdays, Father’s Day and more.  Of course, I love the vintage look of crumb cake and have played with several designs to use at the next buffet.  We will also use the burlap background stamp and/or some burlap cardstock hidden away in my paper stash!  Remember to sign up and come get your new catalog!

Enjoy this beautiful Wednesday and the smell of the lilacs!

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stay InKy!
