Set Back Stamping Technique – Jennifer McGuire Inspired

By Wendy | August 8, 2018 | 1 Comment

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Jennifer McGuire’s work.   I enjoy her videos because they are really thorough and teach a technique beginning to end. This technique really grabbed my attention. Jennifer calls it Set Back stamping.  I couldn’t come up with a better term for it, so we will roll with that. At any rate, the cards come out exquisite and they are very simple to create. TIPS: Choose a stamp set that is a fun design and has a solid cut out around it.  See my examples.  Intricate die cuts will not work for this technique Use a LOT of dimensionals or foam tape on the back of the pieces that you pop up. After I stamped this little witch, I did all my coloring.  I stamped the broom separate and cut it out with the framelits that go with the set. […]

Happy Birthday Cards Catch Up Facebook Live

By Wendy | August 6, 2018 | 1 Comment

I am really excited to hang out live on Facebook today at 10:30am PST! The card I am making is SUPER simple.  I mean crazy easy, but I needed something super simple because I am swamped with stuff that needs to get done. Case in point… My craft space is being redone AGAIN!  WHY? We want our dining room back and we are going to put a sliding glass door in to go out to our new deck. You see the big window behind the pile of junk?  That is where the new door will go.  But first I have to move out of this room. I told my hubby I couldn’t quit stamping and crafting while all this went on.  I needed to still be able to run my business. SO I am purging A LOT of stuff so that I will fit in this little room. There is […]

Our Alaskan Adventure with Stampin’ UP!

By Wendy | August 3, 2018 | 0 Comments

On July 18th we set out on an adventure to Seattle and Alaska. Each year Stampin’ UP! offers an incentive trip to earn.  I work hard every year to try and earn that trip.  Last year I worked to earn Alaska, and we did it. Getting to take my family on this trip was amazing and wonderful.  I took my hubby, kiddo and my niece. We headed to Seattle first, and spent a couple of days there.  There were some cool things to see.  Macie loved riding the huge ferris wheel, the eye of Seattle. I had not been there since I was a child.  It is much dirtier than I remember.  Which being the germ freak that I am, I struggled.  For real. We left from Seattle on July 20th. It was super fun to see the girls reaction to the ship we were getting on.  None of us […]
