Nine Year Old Guest Stamper

Hello Stampers! Sorry I missed my Monday blog post but I had my 9 year old granddaughter with us for the week and we were so busy the time just flew by! I’ve also had major computer problems. I was ready to send it in for repair (still under warranty) but it decided to behave! I swear computers have a mind of their own!

While here Ashlyn, my granddaughter, wanted to make cards. She is crazy about cardmaking and she is really becoming very good for nine years old! I thought I’d share her cards today and make her my Guest Stamper!

Here’s her first card. Needs to work on inking but loved punching out the flowers. I did help her with the ribbon.

Card #2 and she learned how to dry emboss. That was great fun for her. Again, she LOVES the punches!

Card #3. This time we talked about used DSP as a background. She really liked this die. She is now crazy about the Big Shot and dies!

Card #4 we got into some real stamping! Next time we’ll need to work on getting the leaves in place. But I think she did a great job!

This was her last card and I think the most impressive. As I said…she really likes using the Big Shot and dies. 

So…if you know someone who says “oh, I’m not crafty”…tell or show them what a 9 year old can do with a little guidance. When you come to my classes I will guide you through the steps.  Even if you have NEVER stamped…you can be successful. There is no failure in card making. (When we goof, we find a way to cover it up or change it in some way.)

Fingers crossed my computer behaves for me and I’ll have another card for you on Friday. Until then…Happy Stamping!    Donna

Guest Stamper!

Happy Monday Stampers! Today I have a guest stamper, Ann Parmley.  She was a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator many, many years ago and has come back to stamping (not as a demo). She is graciously sharing her cards with us.

This is the Birthday card she made for her mom. Her ice cream looks so real! She used Cool Treats Stamp Set and Frozen Treats Framelits.

This staggered look is very popular now…very cool.

This one is a winner in my book!  She used the Window Box Thinlits and Nailed It from the Occasions Catalog. Isn’t it just great! This one is for her dad for Father’s Day.

I forgot to mention…Ann is my cousin and I’m so happy she is stamping again. I hope we’ll see more of her great work.

You too can be a guest stamper…just send me nice clear photos via my email.

See you on Friday with a card and bookmark I made for my granddaughter for her birthday. Until then, Happy Stamping!

Pretty Spring Card by my Guest Stamper

I’d like to show you a beautiful card created by Jacki Nagle. She is fairly new to Stampin’ Up! products and has started a great collection which she used to create this bright and cheery card.

Jacki A 4.5.15

I love how she used the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder on the DSP.

Jacki B 4.5.15

Here’s another view. I’m sure we are going to see many creative cards done by Jacki.

I would LOVE to have you as my guest stamper! It’s easy – make a card, take a photo or two and send them to me. I’ll post them so others can admire them and maybe even CASE them (Copy And Share Everything).

Thank you Jacki for sharing your creativity and beautiful card.

Happy Stamping!
