'Timeless Textures'= I LOVE IT!

Here is a cool collage card I made for a special friend!  I just can't get enough of this 'Timeless Textures' stamp set.  The more I use it the more I love it!!  I'll be sharing several cards over the next week or so using it.   

Gosh I love this card so much it just might end up being one I use for my monthly swap or maybe my upcoming All Occasions class- we'll see! 
stamp set:  'Timeless Textures' & 'Perfect Pairings'
card stock:  Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
ink:  Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride

Bradyen helped Papa on the farm & in the shop all day yesterday.  Nathan came out late morning & hung out with them in the shop too.  Masen hung out with G'ma in the morning & then went home with his mom.  He sure doesn't like me to get out of his sight....guess he is just a little spoiled huh!  Thus I don't get much done when he is here.  After he left I spent my afternoon stamping!!  I had good mojo & I got several cards created.  I still have piles & lots to get done this week.  I pray my good mojo continues & I have time to get everything done!

Last night we went to Manda's for a couple of hours to eat supper with them & visit, as Steve was gone.  Papa played the Wie with the boys & I helped her. When we got home I burnt the midnight oil stamping. 

This morning I'm off to pick up the boys & spend my day with them.  They've had a bad cough & sick since last week, so I'm going to try to get them into the dr today.   Deke is off early to chore & then he has his weekly board meeting at the courthouse. 

Tonight when all of my boys go home I will be burning the midnight oil stamping again.

I hope you have a MARVELOUS Monday!!
Happy Stamping!

Happy Birthday!!

Check this out!  Here is another fun card that everyone joining me at my monthly classes made this month.  I think it turned out cute!
It is a fun fold card too!  It is a match box card!  And don't you love the cute thinlit words too!  I colored the words using sponge daubers to add color to the white card stock.

stamp set:  'Party With Cake'
card stock:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry
designer paper:  Have a Cuppa Paper Stack
ink:  Basic Black Archival, Crushed Curry & Bermuda Bay
other: Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Precision Plate, Party Pop-Up Thinlit, Bermuda Bay ribbon, Dimesnionals, Glue Dots, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Balloon Bouquet Punch, Big Shot Die Brush, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Sponge Daubers

Notice the little balloons I added to the inside of it too, using the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  

See how you can flip the front down into the folded up part on the bottom of the card to hold it shut.  I didn't add any adhesive along this bottom edge.  I just used the ribbon to secure/hold it shut.  If you don't want to make it a match box fold card, then add a few glue dots along the folded up edge & you can make this into a gift card holder! 
Here are the measurements I used for the white card stock.  
It is a 4 x 11" piece of card stock & I then scored it at 1 1/4 & 6 1/2".
I then put a piece of Basic Black 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" layer behind it to make it a standard card size. 
 Yesterday morning we ran lots of errands.  The boys did good!!  We went to the bank so they got suckers!  And they got to run around in Skunks shop.  And they got to visit almost every office in the courthouse too!  

Yesterday afternoon after work it was so nice, so Steve took the 3 older boys (Brayden, Brody & Drake) & they walked along the pond & in the back fields looking for the shedding of deer antlers.  Trey, Papa & I went back to check on them in the Scout.  The didn't find any antlers, but they saw lots of live deer.  

Last night Deke & went to Fairfield to get his wedding ring fixed.  We ran to Walmart & bought a new TV, as ours in the kitchen died.  We also ate supper out at one of their Mexican restaurants- which was yummy!!

This morning Cindy & Theresa are coming to design wedding invitations.  I'm then off to get my hair all cut off short again.  And then Brayden & Masen will be spending the afternoon/evening with us.  We are going to make a quick trip back to Fairfield to get Deke's ring too.

I hope you have a SENSATIONAL Saturday!!!
Happy Stamping!

"just for you"

Check out this cool card & fun technique!  Have you ever done a shadow along the edge of words before?  I used the White Chalk Marker here to do the shadowing along these words. 

First I stamped the words using the Calypso Coral Ink pad.  And then I just drew along the edges of the words where I wanted it to be shadowed like.

This was one of the cards that everyone made at my monthly classes this month.  It is actually a fun fold easel card too!  Check it out below with it opened up.  Wow- this card could be for many different occasions. 
stamp sets:  'Botanicals for You' (SAB), 'First Sight' & 'Timeless Treasures'
card stock:  Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White, Calypso Coral
ink:  Calypso Coral & Tip Top Taupe
other:  Tip Top Taupe Lace Trim, Basic Rhinestones, Sweetheart Punch, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, White Chalk Marker, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Hearts Border Punch

Last night after the boys went home, I was home alone, as Deke had a meeting.  So I spent my night working on stamping stuff.  

Today is another fun day with my boys.....I'm off to go pick them up.  We have a bunch of errands to run this morning- so hope that all goes well.  Tonight Deke & I are going to Fairfield.  He needs his wedding ring resized & we'll get a few groceries, etc. while we are out of town. 

I hope you have a FABULOUS Friday!!
Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up!- 'What I Love'!

Oh gosh.....these words= Stampin' Up! & What I Love- I could go on & on with this!!  You all know I love LOTS of Stampin' Up! things & things about Stampin' Up!  

Here is another one of the cards that everyone joining me to stamp at my February classes got to make.  

This card is created with a very pretty 2 step stamp set that is a Sale-a-bration choice.  It is called- 'What I Love'!  There is alot of detail in the the stamp images in this set. 
stamp set:  'What I Love' & 'Sunburst Sayings' (for the inside words)
card stock:  Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi
ink:  Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant
other:  Big Shot, Elegant Dots, Wisteria Wonder ribbon, Dimensionals, Glue Dot, Iced Rhinestone Embellishment
I did a fun fold know me- just to be different!  

And the colors I used are 2 of my favorites- Wisteria Wonder & Wild they remind me of my Grandma Cox.

Above is what the card looks like opened up.  And here are the measurements:
Wisteria Wonder- 4 x 5 1/4; 5 1/4 x 1 1/4 (emboss); 4 1/4 x 2 1/2
Wild Wasabi-  5 1/2 x 5 3/4- score at 4 1/4"; 4 1/2 x 2 3/4
Whisper White-  4 x 2 1/4; 4 x 2 1/4 
Yesterday I spent my day with all of my boys.  Masen was here late, as Sarah had a meeting after work.  And with Nathan's cast- he still can't even pick up or do anything with Masen yet.  When Masen left I got some things done around the house- laundry, cleaning, etc.  Deke was gone most of the day, as he had 2 meetings- so we didn't see much of him.  Last night it was late when he got in from choring & working in the shop. 

This morning we are both off early again.  I'm headed in town to pick up the boys for the day.  And Deke is off to chore & then he has 3 meetings today.  Two of them are this morning in Ottumwa & the other one will be tonight in Sigourney.  So it will be late again when he gets home to chore & in the house tonight.  Since I think I'll be home alone tonight, I hope to get to do some stamping when the boys are all gone.

Gotta run......
I hope you have a great Thursday!!
Happy Stamping!

Then we all (Deke, me, Nathan, Sarah, Masen, Manda & Steve) went to Jack's Memorial Service late yesterday afternoon.  We got to see several friends we hadn't seen for years.  Afterwards we all went out for supper for my belated birthday.  When Deke & I got home I got things all packed up & set by the door- ready to load into the car this morning.

Have a Fun Friday!!

Here is a clean & simple birthday card for me to share with you on this fun Friday!!!  I love the ice cream cones in this designer paper.  And I really like the font that goes with the wording in this stamp set too!

I would have never thought of myself as a clean & simple stamper.  I love layers & dimension (which I still do alot of)- but I don't spend hours creating a single card like I use too.  I just don't have time.  I've learned that I have to make the most of the little time I have & even though this is a simple card, it is cute too- with layers & dimension.
stamp set:  'Birthday Blooms'
card stock:  Soft Suede, Mint Macroon, Whisper White
designer paper:  Birthday Bouquet
ink: Watermelon Wonder
other:  Big Shot, Circle Thinlits,Tiny Triangles Embossing folder (on Soft Suede banner), Paper Snips, It's My Day Enamel Dots, Dimensionals, Clear Wink of Stella (added some sparkle to the ice cream cones on the designer paper)

Yesterday was a full day with my boys & then a late night as a farmer, helping Deke with the pigs!  I was a hobbling by the time we got in the house last night.  Here is a long story made short- On Tuesday night I fell off the bottom step on a ladder in the garage & I thought I broke my foot.  It snapped & hurt instantly.  I kept it up & iced it all night.  Thankfully I think it is just sprained really bad.  I could hardly walk on Wednesday though.  Yesterday it was a little less painful.  It is swollen huge & I have a knot on the top of my foot.  It is black & blue from my ankle, down both sides of my foot & clear down to my toes.  Me being on it last night & walking so much selling hogs didn't help it any.  I'm hoping today I can keep it up some & it heals sooner than later.
Nathan got along ok with his surgery yesterday morning & he got home yesterday afternoon.  They had to move some tendens in order to get the plate & pins in, so he is gonna be in extra pain for a few days.  He is gonna have a long few weeks of healing!  He takes after his mom & isn't very good at sitting still doing nothing. 

This morning I'm off to go pick up my boys for the day.  Deke is home again today to work on the farm, so we'll get to enjoy him being here for lunch again.  Tonight when the boys have all gone home, I hope to do no more than I have to do!  We'll see if that happens or not!  I hope there will be a good movie on & I can lay on the couch & watch it!

Have a FUN Friday!
Happy Stamping!

This is my Valentines framed sampler!

I just realized that I never shared here my Valentines framed sampler here on my blog!  It is clean & simple, but I think it turned out really cute!  I just love this Love Blooms designer paper stack.  
This fits in a is 12x12 frame. 
Card stock sizes-
  • Whisper White 12x12
  • Rose Red- 8 1/2 x 8 1/2
  • Blushing Bride- 8 x8
  • My inside squares are- Rose Red- 2 1/4 x 2 1/4" ; Whisper White- 2x2. 
  • And then I used the Love Blossoms DSP Stack & the Sweetheart Punch!
stamp set:  'Bloomin' Love'
card stock:  Rose Red, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
designer paper:  Love Blossoms Paper Stack (6x6")
ink:  Rose Red
other:  Sweetheart Punch, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Hearts Border Punch
Yesterday was a different day with only the 2 little guys.  We had fun!  Masen sure watched & adored Trey.  Last night when the boys went home I caught up on a few things around here.

Nathan has his surgery on his wrist this morning.  I pray that he gets along good.  They are doing it as an out patient.  The surgery is to last about 1 1/2 hours to put the plate(s) & screws in.  Masen stayed with his other Grandma last night, as he has his 6 month check up & shots this morning.  She is taking him to that & then will bring him to our home.  Brayden will be here after school.  I'll keep the boys until Nathan & Sarah get home, unless it it too late- then I'll run them to Manda & Steve's, as we sell hogs tonight & I'll be a farmer helping Deke outside.

I'm off now to pick up the 3 Seeley boys.  Manda has an early meeting today.  We'll enjoy spending our day together.  

Deke is home today to work on the farm all day.  He has feed to grind, some repairs & things to catch up on, etc.  We are looking forward to him being here to eat lunch with us today.

I hope you have a a great Thursday!!
Happy Stamping!

Two hearts!

Here is another cute heart card that I made.  This one was actually a bonus card that I created & cut for my 2 classes that I was suppose to have last Sunday on Valentines Day.  Due to the weather that class got rescheduled for this coming Sunday.  So everyone will still get the chance to make this heart card as a bonus card.....but they are probably going to want to change the words on it to make it an anniversary, wedding, birthday, etc. card.  I will have many different words with me so that they can choose whatever they want it to say. 
stamp set:  'Bloomin' Love'
card stock:  Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
designer paper:  Love Blossoms Paper Stack (6x6")
ink:  Crumb Cake
other:  2 1/2" Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack (small heart), Sweetheart Punch, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Word Window Punch, White Perfect Accents

I created this card first & then created the red/white/black one that I made for our kids for Valentines.  They are the same layout- but have a totally different look to them.  You can see that heart card HERE!!
Oh- our day yesterday sure didn't end up like we had planned......
  • Deke had the flu & was sooo sick.  He didn't leave the house other to feed the pigs & come right back in to be in bed all day.   
  • We had ice when we woke up, thus school was delayed & then it ended up being cancelled.  So I didn't have the Seeley boys, they stayed home with their mom.  
  • I did go to Nathan & Sarah's home though to help them out.  Sarah went to work early & I went in to pick up Nathan, Brayden & Masen.  They spent the day with us at our home.  WHY?
Nathan had a bad wreck on a snowmobile last Friday in Wisconsin.  Luckily he wasn't hurt worse than he is.  The snowmobile is totaled.  He broke his wrist badly & hurt his leg.  He went to the ER there & they put a splint on his wrist & made an appointment at Steindler Clinic in Iowa City for him to go to on Monday.  There they did a CT & put a different splint on him that went from his finger tips clear up past his elbow- so he can't move it at all.  The dr called him late yesterday afternoon & he will be having surgery on it tomorrow.  He can't pick up Masen, feed him or little things we take for granted each day are a challenge right now for him.  I'm so glad that he is having surgery on it.  He is in alot of pain & it looks terrible.  I pray that the surgery goes well & he has full use of it in the months/years to come.  He has a few rough weeks ahead of him as it all heals. 

This morning our Sigourney HS Wrestling Team is wrestling at State, so there is no school again today.  Manda & Steve are taking the twins & they are going to Des Moines to watch them wrestle.  

So I'm heading to town early to pick up Masen & then get Trey.  I'll spend my day at our home with the 2 little guys today.  

Thankfully Deke feels better today, so he is off early to chore & then he has 2 meetings to attend- so we won't be seeing much of him. 

I am not sure what we are doing tonight.  I told Deke I just wanted to stay home & watch a movie!  So we'll see what ends up happening.  

Hoping you have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!
Happy Stamping!

This weeks "WEEKLY DEALS"- February 16-22,2016!

It is puppy love!

Oh my.......the expressions on the boys faces when I gave them their puppy Valentines was priceless.  I'm so tickled they liked them so well!  I think they turned out super cute!  I used the hearts from the January Paper Pumpkin kit.  
I made a little diagonal pocket on the inside to put cash into for them.   And the stamp for these words was also in last months Paper Pumpkin kit.
These cards care big!!!  I used a whole sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 Basic Gray card stock & fold it in half to make the bases for these cards.  And I used lots of different hearts to make these puppies.

Other supplies I used:  Large Oval Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Sweetheart Punch, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
card stock:   Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White

And I want to give credit to & say thanks to demonstrator friend Rachel, for coming up with the idea to make puppies out of the hearts in this Paper Pumpkin kit!

Last night Deke had a meeting & I spent my night doing paperwork for tax stuff.  

Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
Happy Stamping!

Here is a the card I made for our kids (Nathan & Sarah; Manda & Steve) for Valentines.  It is clean & simple!  The XOXO stamp comes from last months Paper Pumpkin kit that I just love.  

Tomorrow I'll share the boys Valentines that I made for them using the same kit.  They turned out SUPER CUTE & I can't wait until the boys see them today. 
Knowing me I probably made red, black & white Valentines cards for them last year too.  I know the Anniversary card I made for Manda & Steve were those colors.  Guess I think the guys in our family need the traditional red & white.  And it was just too I added the black.

ink:  Archival Basic Black
other:  2 1/2" Circle Punch, Sweetheart Punch, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Itty Bitty Punch Pack (small heart)

And then here are the ones we made for Brayden's treats to take to school for his classmates.  These are little monsters & they were a Stampin' Up! kit from a few years ago.  We added a big Sweetheart Punch & the words "Be Mine" on the front & attached it with dimensionals.  We also added a couple of little punched out hearts on the back side of them.  
The Calypso Coral ones were the girl monsters & the Night of Navy ones were the boy monsters.
The googly eyes were also included in the kit, so the boys got to put them on too.

Did you notice the little rice crispie treats we had the monsters hug?

Yesterday was a long day!  It was about 7:30 when I got in from the farm.....and I went right to town to pick up the boys from Manda & Steve's home.  We we got home we finished Brayden's Valentines, did his math homework, worked on his spelling words & figured out what he was eating for breakfast & lunch tomorrow.   When I got Masen fed & the boys to bed I picked up toys, did dishes, laundry, answered emails, etc. 

Deke moved pigs last night by himself & he didn't get in until about 10:30.  Oh how I love making supper so late.  And I burnt the midnight oil getting things done & ready for stamp classes.  

We are up early this morning to get Brayden fed & ready for school.  We'll then go pick up the Seeley boys, take Brayden to school & head back out to our home for the day.  

Deke is hopefully going to be in tonight by 6 for supper & then he'll watch the boys for me.  As tonight is my monthly stampin' night at our home & I have a house full joining me to stamp!  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone!

I hope you have a FABULOUS Friday!!
Happy Stamping!
