#186 Stained Glass "Ice" Technique with GIVEAWAY

Technique Thursday :)

This is a new thing that I am starting :) 
New techniques will be shared at least once a month on a Thursday. 

This first one was recommended by Kathy one of my Stampin' RN VIP's.

I had not seen this technique before so I had some researching it and trying different things. 

Here is what I came up with :) 

I just love the look of this ice technique and how it makes this butterfly look like Stained Glass. 

You can use any stamp for this technique but stamps that have a nice thick border and open areas to color in really lend themselves to the Stained Glass look. 
The Beautiful Day Stamp Set is just perfect for it. 

Other items that you will need are...
Some Stampin' Pad Ink Colors or Stampin' Blends and a sponge...
as well as ...

I hope you enjoy the video and know that you too can make something lovely. Don't be afraid to try new things. They are often easier than they appear. :) Make sure that you let me know if you have any questions as I'm always happy to help anytime :)

If you are finding that the technique is a little overwhelming don't'll get there.

Make a comment below and be entered to win some clear embossing powder so you too can work on the "Ice" Technique :) 

I am also going to start a beginning stamping session that includes the basics of stamping, cutting paper and beginning card making.
Stay tuned for those details :)

#185 Mystery Hostess

Who wants to be a mystery hostess? 
Image result for mystery host

I will be doing this lovely Soft Sayings all inclusive stamp kit. The kit is $35 + tax and shipping. 
You get to make 20 cards - 2 each of 10 designs.
The kit includes everything you will need except some adhesive. 

Go to my website at 
and use hostess code SVH6E44R
This is a quick turnaround as the class needs to be ordered by Monday March 12th. 

One person will get the Hostess Rewards for this class. One person will be drawn to get the freebies.

Hostess rewards start once you reach $150 worth of product, and right now during sale-a-bration if you reach $250, you get the regular $25 + and additional $25. 

If you don't want to chance your luck at the mystery hostess, you can always be your own hostess of any Facebook Live Party, where you invite your friends and I demo things online for your group and people have the option to purchase from their own home :) Then you would get the Stampin' Rewards for the items that are bought. 
It's a really fun way to spend the afternoon with friends using a card kit with everything in it. :) 

If you have questions...please feel free to ask :)

Notebook/Coupon Keeper fun

It's always fun to poke around on Pinterest and see what is new. 
This last week I asked my Stampin' RN VIP's to tell me something that they would like to see a video of. 

One item was my previous post of the treat holder and the other item they wanted to see was a notepad holder. 

I found some great ideas on Pinterest and then designed this take on it with the Petal Palette Memories and More Card Pack. 

This is one of the empty stamp cases that you can purchase from Stampin' Up! Item#119105 $6.00 for 4 of them. 

This is just such a fun thing to make friends, teachers or just about anyone. 

Please feel free to watch my video below and see how easy it is. :) 

What other things are you all wanting to see? Comment below and tell what items you would like to see videos on :)

#183 Foldable Treat Holder

Treat holders are always fun :) 
I asked the VIP's on my Facebook page to put in requests for some new video's. 
One of the requests was for a cute Treat holder. 

I looked around and found this super fun, foldable treat holder from a Stampin' Up! demo in the UK. 

These are just so cute and perfect to giveaway with a few candies, gum, chapstick, just about anything small. 

The best part about these treats is that the box can lay totally flat until you add the goodies to it. 

A wonderful way to use up some designer series paper :)

I hope you enjoy making these goodies.
The Simply Scored is very handy to make these.

Knitting time #1

I think it’s time to do a little knitting. My upline with Stampin’ Up! Is a knitter. Recently at a leadership conference I watched her knit away in some down time. I’ve never been very good at it, but my hubby really wants a’ll try again :) 

This is the plan/pattern I am going to follow. I've gotten started as you can see. 

I really want to knit some socks too. I have tried it before. If anyone has any simple sock patterns, I'd be happy to see :) Comment below if you've got something good for me.
