Matt and I have our 9 year anniversary this week!  On our first date we ate dinner then walked over to a book store. We sat on a bench and looked at magazines together.  I showed him stamp magazines and explained what I did and he showed me Drum magazines.  Kind of a funny thing to do on a first date but it was so easy and comfortable that I knew he was special. (AND the fact that he didn’t snicker when I showed him the stamp magazines!)

On to the stamps!


This is a Z fold card I stamped recently, using the Vivid Vases, watercolor paper, and modern Medley.  I colored with inks and Aquapainters.


20140304-080059.jpgLOVE this swap I received from Kimberly Allen.   She used Core’dinations paper embossed with the mosaic folder, sanded and watercolored the Peaceful Petals flowers.

20140304-080105.jpgSee how she colored the leaf in yellow first then added green?  Really makes it pop.


Remmeber the old technique Spirelli?  Julie Ross, a demo on our team here in FL, made this fun card.

Our Starburst Framelits are perfect for it!

Go Stamp Something!

  3. Awww, what a nice story of how you and Matt met. Happy Anniversary! I met my one and only late in life(39!) and we will celebrate just two years of marriage later this year. I am curious, how long have you been with Stampin’ up? – Kristal Bell

  4. Thanks Kristal! I’ve been in a bit over 14 years. How about you?


  5. Well I am just a purchaser of Stampin’ up 😉 but I was first introduced in 2003, so 11 years ago I believe. I took a long hiatus from crafting until two years ago and now my supplies have exploded. 🙂 My only crafting spot is my bedroom too so it is quite interesting finding a place for everything!

  6. That is a tough one! One year i had put in a Murphy bed with 2 huge cabinets on each side so i’d have more room!
