Video for triple stamping card

Here is the link to the Triple Stamp Tutorial video that explains in much better detail than I could.  The triple stamped card turns out beautifully and ends up looking like you have cut patterned paper and lined it up.  I hope you enjoy.  I will also be posting some other samples that I have found using this technique.  I can't wait for you to try it. 
Until tomorrow-- xoxo--Stephanie

A slice of pumpkin Pie

So is Thanksgiving here yet??? I see pumpkin pie!!! All joking aside I tried a new technique for me (triple stamping).  It is so simple and I will post directions on tomorrow's post.  Just wanted to give you a sneek peek before I go and try to create some other ones using this technique!!!! Can't wait to see what the creative juices bring tomorrow.
Until then....xoxo -stephanie

Loving this card~~~

Good evening everyone! I hope you have all had a wonderful day.  As we are drawing nearer to school starting I am finding it hard to seclude myself to my craft spot to get going.  I am not saying that I am watching the calendar like a Hawk for Monday to get here, I am just hinting that it will be nice to have some QUIET craft time.  :)
Here is a card that I thought turned out GREAT! I was playing around with the new In Colors for 2012-2014 and came up with this creation.  I am trying to construct some simple card samples for my beginning stamp classes
Here are the details:
Base is Summer Starfruit Cardstock 5.5 x4.25
Second base is Summer starfruit designer paper (small newspaper print)
Stamp: mixed bunch in Gumball Green, and Primrose Petals
The top flower is punched with the Blossom Punch in Primrose petals
the sentiment says Welcome (retired set but comparable to warm words)
I inked the edges with Primrose Petals with a sponge
All of these items are available for purchase on my website:

until tomorrow-- xoxo stephanie

Prepare yourself for the whole shabang!!!!!

Ok, so I was going to post 1 card at a time, but I am soooooo trying to put together a sample board to show potential customers so I have been popping out samples like crazy in the last couple of days.  Although this potentially would give me TONS of blog ideas I dont' want to be stale when I post.  Here is a set of Monochromatic cards.  This is something I think I am going to offer as a class.  These were simple but turned out  beautiful.  They range from Super simple to a little more complex.  I hope you like them, I used the In Colors from Stampin Up to create these.  For specifics for each card just shoot me an email at and I will be GLAD to share. 
The colors used are Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, and Raspberry Ripple. Of course the white is Whisper White.  All stamps were Mixed Bunch and the blossom punch.  It is astounding to me how many different looks I can create with one set of stamps.  I hope you enjoy.
Until tomorrow  xoxo-stephanie

Monochromatics here we come........

Well I am so loving playing with my new In Colors paper and ink.  I am trying to see how many different cards I can do with the stamp set mixed bunch.  I am on a new adventure with Stampin Up and am so far loving playing with MDS (my digital studio) as well as paper, stamps and inks.  Monochromatic seems to be the theme for me this weekend.  I started and couldn't stop. 
I don't know what's wrong with me......I just couldn't stop.  Here is a card I made on Saturday using that "magic stamp set" (Mixed Bunch)
Here are the details:
Whishper White base 5.5 x4.25
Summer Starfruit polka dot design paper 5.25 x 4
Whisper White 5. x 3.75
Stamp: mixed bunch in summer starfruit
Punches: Stampin Up 1.5 inch scallop circle and 1.25 inch circle
Embossing folder for top layer: Perfect polka dot embossing folder
Sentiment: Stampin Up Sweet (a retired stamp)
All of these items are available on my website for purchase:
I hope you enjoy this card and I will be adding some more each day!!!
Until tomorrow.....xoxo-stephanie
