I wanted to show you the latest project that my daughter and I worked on over the Thanksgiving holiday!
This is another one of the 12 X 12 canvas pictures that we made! The background is a piece of 12 X 12 designer series paper and then we just added layers we cut from framelits and die cuts! I love it! The picture doesn't do it justice! We used wink of stella on the letters, rhinestones in the stars, etc. So pretty and so much fun!
Thanks for stopping by! Tonight is my celebratory dinner with some of my team members. Come back tomorrow and see the gift I made them all!
Hello Stampers! When I was at OnStage in Salt Lake City a couple of weeks ago, we acknowledged the top 100 demonstrators globally. It is so fun to see these amazing individuals and all that they accomplish. This year, after we returned home, Stampin' Up! released the list of the top 250 demonstrators globally and guess what? I am number 154! That is amazing! And I'm number 76 in the US!
Take a look at this great card one of my great friends sent me!
It is sort of hard to see in the photo, but the numbers 154 are popped up using the eclipse technique! I love it! Thanks so much Sue! Sue and I actually met in a hotel at a Stampin' Up! event several years ago! We have been great friends ever since!

Hello Stampers! Today is my baby's birthday! 21 years old! This is her having her first drink (wink! wink!). Actually when we went to Thailand this summer she was able to have a drink because the drinking age there is 20!
She loves elephants, so I try to always make her an elephant card for her birthday! Here is the card that I made her this year:
This was a Silhouette image that I purchased and cut out. I think it is so cute!
Hello Stampers! Well I am currently at Stampin' Up!'s OnStage in Salt Lake City! Believe it or not, the weather is actually supposed to be the same or a touch warmer than it is here at home in St. Louis! It will still be cold though and I'm tired of it and ready for summer!
Anyway, when we attend OnStage I always make gifts for my team members and roomies. Look at what I made this year!!
They are cute little boxes with a pair of Paper Snips (love these scissors). They have ribbon on them to designate them as ribbon scissors! Can you see what they are laying on? I had lanyards made for my team members to wear that say Cardinal Stampers! They are really cute! I'm thinking I'm going to need several of them for next November because OnStage will be in Orlando, Florida as we celebrate Stampin' Up!'s 30th anniversary!!!
Hello Stampers! Every month I attend a Silhouette class. We learn new ways to use our Silhouette and complete a project. We are now in a series of Shadow box classes. Here is the insert that we made this month:
It is hard to tell by the picture but the words are matted in gold foil! So pretty!
Thanks for stopping by! I'm currently at Stampin' Up!'s OnStage in Salt Lake City! Keep up with my trip on my Inkin with Dink Stampers Facebook group! Plus I'm sure I'll have lots to share when I return!
Hello Stampers! Well, I got my swaps finished! Yea! And about a week before I leave for OnStage! That never happens! But it had to this time because I leave Sunday to go to my mom's to do a private party and won't get home until Tuesday. Then I leave Wednesday for OnStage!!! So I had to get them done early! Want to see them?
I made 50 of these! 10 were in Berry Burst, 10 were Lemon Lime Twist, 10 were Fresh Fig, 10 were Tranquil Tide, and 10 were Powder Pink!
Hello Stampers! I'm so excited to announce that the new Stampin' Up! Blends Markers are available! They are our new alcohol markers! I have used them and they make coloring, blending, and shading so easy to do.
What is so special about them?
Add just the right amount of color where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
Each color (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
We have done in-house testing for evaporation and life testing and are really happy with the results.
Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting color.
I have a couple of specials for you!

Hello Stampers! I had a great weekend this past weekend away at my scrapbook retreat. I love it because we can get away, scrapbook all day long with no interruptions or things that need to be done!
I was able to complete my Thailand pages! I wanted to get them done before I forget some special things to journal! Here are a few of my completed pages:
I don't know about your and your scrapbook style, but I find on pages like these, I don't get crazy with decorating because I just have so many pictures to squeeze on each page that I don't have room for anything else!!!
Now today was back to reality and my stamping world! Here is what I worked on today:
Can you tell what these are They are for my swaps at the upcoming Stampin' Up! Onstage! I'll show you the completed cards when I'm done!
