Corner Garden

The Retiring List has been released and it is a really big list!  One of my customers has ordered the Corner Garden stamp and I decided to use mine to make her a thank you card.  It uses the Corner Garden stamp, Yippee – Skippee stamp set, and Coastal Cabana ink and paper.  It is a simple yet effective technique: emboss the image with VersaMark ink and clear embossing powder, then rub the color in with an ink pad and sponge.  I did use a darker color for the greeting so that it would stand out.

Too Much Happy

There are a lot of products already gone from the Retiring List, so if you still have some on your Wish List, don’t wait too long!  Shop at my Stampin’ Up! store anytime.

Here are some of the products I used for this card:



Free Cards!

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I acquire a lot of hand-stamped cards, from card swaps or when I am planning a project or just when I want to “play”.  When I lived in San Antonio, I had a booth at the Alamo Craft Company where I could sell them, but I haven’t found a craft mall here in Virginia, so I am going to give them away!
During the month of April, I will send you 10 cards (with envelopes) for free when you make a $50 order! You can shop my Online Store anytime.  Please use Hostess Code TUNGSTEH when you order, unless your order is $150 or more (if that is the case, YOU will receive hostess benefits!!)
I think there are about 500 cards in this pile, so if I get a good response this month, I might do it again!
Call me at 210.684.5800, or email me at if you have any questions or need help ordering.
