Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I'm introducing the cards we'll be making at my in-person card classes coming up next week. You'll make 3 beautiful cards and the cost is $20, which includes envelopes and printed instructions. All you need to bring are your scissors and favorite adhesives. The schedule is as follows:

Now let's take a look at the cards you'll make.

This first card is made with the Texture Chic Suite and Delicate Edges dies. The Suite includes the beautiful Texture Chic Designer Series Paper, Season of Chic Bundle, and the beautiful Distressed Gold Specialty paper. The price of the whole Suite is just $77.50 plus shipping and taxes. I will post a card I made using the Distressed Gold paper at the bottom of the post.

Next is the cute Wild and Sweet card with the panda. He looks so peaceful.


The third card introduces the beautiful Willow Tree bundle and I used the Texture Chic Designer Series Paper, again, for the background and the Fabulous Frames dies for the frame.

I hope you like these cards and live in the Tallahassee, Florida area. I would love to have you attend my classes.

Below is the card made with the Distressed Gold paper and also the Willow Dies.

Fancy Frames for the Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop - Monochrome Color Challenge






Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I'm hopping with a talented group of demonstrators from all over the world. You have just enjoyed visiting the talented Linda Moore's blog. Our challenge is to show you projects you can make using our beautiful shades of blue ink and cardstock.


I chose to highlight Night of Navy and my card centers around the beautiful Sun Prints designer series paper and the Fancy Frames Dies. I also decided to make this an easel card. You'll love making an easel card, because it is an easy way to add a WOW to a card. The card base is 11" x 4 1/4" piece of Night of Navy scored at 5 1/2" and 2 3/4". 

The 3" x 5" piece of Sun Prints Designer Series paper was cut with one of the Francy Frames dies (it comes in a set of 2). 

A 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Basic White was embossed with the Twigs and Sprigs Embossing Folder and adhered to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card base of Night of Navy. The Sun Prints frame was adhered to the Basic White piece favoring the right side. I then adhered the piece that was cut from the center of the frame back into the center with dimensionals. This piece was then adhered to the bottom half of the card front, forming the easel.
I cut a 4 1/4" x 2" piece of Sun Prints Designer Paper and adhered it to the bottom inside of the card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set on Basic White in Night of Navy ink, cut it with a die from Seasonal Frames, and adhered it with dimensionals to the designer series paper. The dimensionals lift up the papers so the easel will have something to prop on to stand up.

Do you want to make this card at home? I have provided links below to the products used to make this card.

I know you can't wait to see what the other fabulous demonstrators have created using our hues of blue, so hop on over to our next demonstrator, who is Angie McKenzie.

Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper for the Stamp 'n Hop Blog Hop




Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I'm hopping with a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world. Today we're sharing our love for Stampin' Up!s Designer Series Paper (also known as DSP), and they do have some beautiful papers! You have just arrived from Vicky Wright. You are currently visiting Robbie Susan Chandler from the state of Florida in the United States. Thank you for dropping by.

The card I'm featuring was shared with me by Helen McGhinn, one of the demonstrators whom I meet with each month to make cards together. She designed this card for us as a make and take.
The paper I'm featuring is the Hues of Happiness 12" x 12" designer series paper. This designer paper does all the work for you. It's a quick and easy card but looks like you did a lot of work blending all those sunset colors. I adhered a 4" x 5 1/4" piece to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Thick Basic White cardstock folded in half. I love our Thick Basic White cardstock for my card bases as it gives a more professional feel and look in comparison to our regular Basic White.

The mountain stamp is from the Mountain Air stamp set and was stamped with Old Olive ink.


The boat was stamped in Night of Navy and punched from the Let's Set Sail Bundle (our bundles are 10% off when you purchase the punch and stamp set together).

The sentiment and birds are also from the Let's Set Sail stamp set. Both were stamped with Night of Navy ink, and the sentiment was cut with a die from Stylish Shapes Dies.

I have provided links below for you to purchase the supplies for you to make this card at home.

Sweet Sorbet Hombre Effect for the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to my blog! Today's Stampin Dreams Blog Hop theme is all about ombre, or gradual shading and blending from one color to another. 


I chose one of the new In Colors, Sweet Sorbet, to make a fiery sunset card. A palm tree was added to my beach sunset. I was just at the beach a couple of weeks ago, and this is the kind of sunset we got to experience in the evenings.

My cardbase is an 11" x 4 1/4" piece of Thick Basic White cardstock folded in half. Sweet Sorbet ink was blended across a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Basic White cardstock with a blending brush. I adhered a torn piece of Post-it note to the bottom to make my island, then blended Sweet Sorbet the rest of the way up, getting lighter as I blended up the cardstock. 

The sentiment is from Charming Sentiments and has a coordinating die from Sentiment Silhouettes. I just love this set!

Birds from the Let's Set Sail stamp set were added at the top.
