Debie Deschaine Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Creating Greeting Cards & Paper Projects with Love!

February 12th, 2018

     This stamp set took a little while to grow on me for some reason. Usually seeing the cute cards that other Demonstrators have made on the various FaceBook groups or Pinterest is what gets me to change my mind. That’s exactly what happened. I LOVE it now! Does that happen to you too?

Bubble Over Collage

     It’s so fun to put those adorable water droplets on the bottles! And all the bubbles are just so cute! I think I’m going to have to use the bubble stamps or even the Bubble and Fizz DSP, (which is FREE btw, with a $50 purchase…through the end of March) with my Magical Mermaid or with the Seaside Shore stamp sets soon.

     My Card Buffet Class will be making the Root Beer bottle…I guess it could be Coke or Pepsi, too…anyway, they’ll be making that card in March.

     Birthday cards could not be easier to design and make when you use the Picture Perfect Party Suite on page 4 of the 2018 Occassions Catalog. I’m not kidding I whipped these festive cards out in a very short time. The paper is fun and lively with bright Birthday colors!

WMPPB Collage

   The only bummer about the Suite is that the manufacturer for the Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon fell through, (on page 5)…I was so looking forward to playing with it!

Another reason this suite of products is great is because the cards can be for anyone, male, female, young or older.  I will be offering some of these cards in up coming classes!

    Valentines Day always makes my heart happy! I have more Valentines Day cards to make now that we’ve added 3 really awesome people to our family, both my daughter’s husbands and my son’s wife! More about our family tradition below the Card Collage…

WMHeart Happiness Collage

   I started a Valentines Day family tradition before all our kids could write. Each member of the family would write a love letter to each other family member. When the kids were little, they told me or my husband what to write for them. Oh how fun to go back and read them now! It was such a special time! From our son’s short and sweet notes to his sisters, to one he writes: “Your good at piano” and to the other he writes: “You are fun to play with” to the much wordier paragraphs from our two girls, my husbands sweet and observant notes of love and my efforts to try and express a love so big that there just aren’t words for…yes, Valentines Day has full to the brim, bursting with love memories of raising our kids! We have done one long letter to everyone since the kids have had partners, last year we missed it due to the great pain I was in with my back. This year, each of them will get a love note from me. And someday…the grandbabies will get their own Valentines.

    The following card uses the Masking Technique. I used framelits to cut out “full sticky back” postit notes for the masking. It’s an easy card to do and I love it! The ladies at my January Card Buffet made this card.

     If you like to color…you’re gonna LOVE Stampin’ Blends! They are less expensive than other quality alcohol markers…AND…even less expensive than the refills for other alcohol markers!

   I had SO MUCH fun coloring these cards!! I sat next to my hubby as he watched tv…and I sorta watched tv, but mostly colored! I’m just beginning to learn how to use the Stampin’ Blends, but as you can see, just some basic coloring techniques make a lot of impact! (On a side note…don’t miss the 3 rain drops coming down on “Beautiful You”, those are our new Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes in the Occasions Catalog!)

   You ARE amazing!! As amazing as you are, it’s nice to know that a new day brings opportunities for do-overs! Everyone gets a clean slate on New Years, at least it kinda feels that way.  It’s a good time to write out some goals.  I’m hoping your written goals include giving yourself time to nurture your creative side, which for me is stamping greeting cards.

    I thought I’d start the year with a new and FREE stamp set!

A YOUWM Collage

   This set is unique in that it has a FREE thinlit set that you can pair it with!  The new Level 2 Sale-A-Bration,(SAB), items are free with a $100 purchase, Level 1 are free with a $50 purchase.  The new SAB catalog begins in just two days!!

   You may have wondered what coloring technique I used for the Dapper Denim card in the top and bottom left hand corners of the collage.  Brusho! Such a fun coloring technique, you can learn more if you click here:  LEARN ABOUT BRUSHO

    And finally, a new tip for the new year…I hope it helps you in your creative endeavors!
