Stamping—That’s Why I’m Here

Almost forgot, this blog is supposed to be all about stamping, isn’t it? Thought I'd better share a card with you, since that’s why I invited y’all over! Yet another card with one of my favorite retiring sets, Natural Beauty. The focal point was created by watercoloring the stamped image, then coating it with 3-4 layers of Glassy Glaze embossing powder. I put it in the freezer for a little bit, removed it, then bent the cardstock to get that cracked glass effect.

Retiring List... Boo Hoo Hoo!

Well, the Stampin’ Up! retirement list for 2007 has been released, and the only word I can come up with for it is a bloodbath! They are getting rid of so many wonderful stamp sets. My only consolation is that the new catalog will be chock-full of wonderful NEW stuff. Here’s a sample from one of my favorite sets, Natural Beauty, set to retire at the end of June. This is a little Latch Card, made with Almost Amethyst, Mellow Moss, and Rose Red cardstock.

Silly BlogThing

There are so many silly, funny things to put in your blog... the best part is, they do all the HTML code for you, so you don't have to know anything about coding to add them to your blog! Blogthings has got some cute stuff, like this:

You Are 70% Normal

Otherwise known as the normal amount of normal

You're like most people most of the time

But you've got those quirks that make you endearing

You're unique, yes... but not frighteningly so!

I’ve always wanted to know how normal I am! Glad to know that I’m not frightening!
