What do you get when you’ve made a bunch of projects but then totally slacked off on sharing them on the blog?  A mad dash to start posting them all so you can see the fun ideas while you can actually still get the products if you want to make it yourself.  Novel idea, huh? 😉 Today I wanted to share a card that I made for my Stamp Club that was inspired by a card by Kim Williams.  I loved the basics of her card and just simplified it down to this version which I think is just so … Read More

Stampin' Up 2017 Retirement List on NWStamper.com - Jennifer Blomquist

I’m back from OnStage Local in Shreveport, LA (this is like a regional conference for Stampin’ Up demonstrators)! My head is spinning with lots of new ideas to share and excitement around the new items coming – seriously guys, great stuff!  But, at the same time as I was heading home, Stampin’ Up released their list of items that are being discontinued as of June 1st. The Good:  A number of retiring items are discounted 15%-50% off! The Bad: Everything except stamps are only available while supplies last, and some items have already sold out!

Flourishing Phrases Accent Coloring with the Chalk Marker - Jennifer Blomquist, NWStamper.com

Back when Stampin’ Up had Chalkboard Paper, we also got the White Chalk marker.  And I knew what to do with it… duh, you use a chalk marker on chalkboard paper!  🙂  But then, the chalkboard paper went away and the chalk marker remained, which made me think there had to be other great uses for this marker.  Since then, I found that it is great for all kinds of soft accents and touches on your cards.  My favorite version is Accent Coloring with the chalk marker on light brown paper, like I did in this card! I stamped the flourish … Read More

Tone-on-Tone backgrounds with Delicate Details and Bella & Friends - Jennifer Blomquist, NWstamper.com

March is fast coming to a close and that means we only have 2 days left of Sale-a-Bration and the chance to get some of these cute sets like the Delicate Details stamp set! It has so many possibilities including lace borders, emboss-resist techniques, etc.  But my favorite idea with it – and one of the easiest- is to create fabulous tone-on-tone backgrounds using the lace.  Check it out: I always think of lace stamps as being delicate and ideal for weddings and love cards, but you don’t have to keep it to those boxes!  I had created a simple … Read More
