Guest Stamper Lucy Taylor...

Today's project is designed by Crew Stamper Lucy Taylor.  Lucy used the Grateful Bunch stamp set and coordinating Blossom Bunch Punch which were carried over from the Occasions Catalog.  She also used a bit of Affectionately Your DSP and the banner from the Bloomin' Love stamp set.


It's hard to tell in the photo, but she used Crystal Effects on the centers of the flowers and the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen on all the petals.  Very shinny and pretty!  Thanks Lucy!

Crew Stampers Escape...

At my June down line meeting, we have an auction where my team can spend the Crew Dollar incentives they earn throughout the year.  They spent over $500 this year in logo merchandise, stamps, storage, DSP and more.  One of the items was dinner and an Escape Room event.  We held it last Saturday.  I had 5 wonderful ladies come to dinner at my house, we escaped from the Twisted Toy Room at Jonesboro Escape Rooms, then came back for dessert.  I thought I'd share a few of those photos with you.

L-R:  Sharon Milburn, Janet Hathcoat, Mary Harvey, JoAnn Graham and Laura Diamond

Italian for dinner.  Mary brought me the lovely flowers - thanks Mary!

We escaped with only a few hints and minutes to spare.  Lots of fun and great teamwork!

Guest Stamper Janet Hathcoat...

I have another talented Crew Stamper sharing some projects with you today.  Janet Hathcoat made this lovely card for our last demonstrator swap.  I love the clean lines and look of this card.  It even made me like the new Peek-a-boo Peach color more.

Janet used the host set, Gift of Love for this beautiful card.  

Here's a closer look of the two step stamping.  She also used the Playful Palette DSP stack.  


This is a CONGRATS card Janet sent to me using the June Paper Pumpkin kit.  Hard to see the letters because it's so sparkly and shiny!

Here's what they look like up close - love it!  I have it pinned up to my bulletin board.  Thanks Janet!

July Paper Pumpkin...

I received my July Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail a few days ago and I'm loving it!  I sent out my bonus project to my subscribers, and I want to share that and another project with you today.  I plan on purchasing several more of these kits to make a project for my Christmas in August class coming up next month.  I'm involved with the Girl Scouts, Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, so this kit (in GS colors and diamonds) really spoke to me.

Here's a video showing you the kit.  Make sure to click on my blog title in the email to view the video.


Here is the bonus project I sent to my subscribers (for free):



 Here's one more project using the stamps and inks.


It's hard to tell in the photo, but some of the gems have the Wink of Stella Glitter Pen (clear) on them.

Guest stamper and a Hello Pineapple...

Today's most talented guest stamper is Crew member JoAnn Graham.  You can check out JoAnn's blog at http://therockpaperscissorsstudio.com/.  She designed this great card for our Demonstrator swap using the Pineapple stamp and a fun technique.

The "hello" is from the Hello You Thinlits Dies.

Here's a closer look at the pineapple.  JoAnn used several colors of ink by touching them directly on the stamp.  After stamping, she heat embossed some gold powder in a splatter image (Gorgeous Grunge) over the pineapple base.  The leaves were stamped in Emerald envy, then trimmed by hand and repositioned behind the pineapple for more depth.  Lovely card JoAnn!

Guest Stamper and Painter's Palette...

Today's wonderful guest stamper is Crew member Kathy Weston.  Kathy had designed that cute 4th of July treat topper a few posts ago for a make and take.  This is her beautiful card she made for our swap.

Kathy used this new stamp set and some of our new In Colors for this fun card. A bit of the new Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon adds a nice touch.   

I love the little flowers on top of the easel fromi our Swirly Bird Bundle. Great job Kathy!
