In Holy Stampimony

Thank You

Didn’t use up all your Halloween Night designer series paper?  No problem!  You can do one of two things: 1) Save it for next year or 2) use the other side!  I chose #2!


This week we enter the season of being grateful/thankful and with my favorite season and the Stamp Ink Paper card challenges kicks the holiday season off with a grateful card challenge.  Please show how grateful you are over at the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.

Thank You

The Details:

  • Marrying Stamp Sets.  Joining two different sets in holy stampimony makes for a happy card.  The anchor in Guy Greetings makes a perfect match with Banner Blessings and they make the cutest couple don’t ya think?
  • Outdated Designer Series Paper.  No problem! Flip it over and get a completely different look.  It’s what I did with the left over Halloween Night DSP.  Often we are so mesmerized with the cute designs that we forget to flip it and admire the reverse side.  However, you can also do what so many of us do….save it for next year! LOL


Use Host Code above and receive a gift from me  when you place an on-line order via my on-line store.  Do not use if your order is more than $150. You will receive additional Host Reward and you’ll automatically receive a gift from me.

FREE SHIPPING?  You can do this each time a new seasonal catalog is introduced.  You’ll NEVER ever have to make any sales and you just let your membership expire.  Three ways steps:  

  1. Join as a hobby demonstrator when you want to place an order that equals $99.
  2. Stampin’ Up! will literally GIVE YOU an additional $26 in product…WHATEVER you want for only $99.
  3. …and most important! FREE shipping.

There’s no risk, no obligation to purchase anything further and no penalty to drop!  Why not give Stampin’ Up! and my Circle of Pals a test drive and start building your $99 Starter Kit here.

 Peace, Love & Lots of Hugs,

Thanksgiving Break


Happy Thanksgiving everyone and welcome to another Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.  Today we are having deep-fried turkey…hmmm, I don’t think I’ve ever had it deep-fried, but my hubby, the Chef wants to try it this year.  I’ll let y’all know how it turns out….hmmm.


I’m in love with these trees and I find myself using them often and I’m not a tree stamper.  But the image is so easy to use and they are so bold and daring.  When I stamp them all I think is, “wish I could climb them.” LOL…and I’m afraid of heights…go figure!


After you’re done with your lunch or dinner and the family is napping, maybe you can sneak away for just a moment and put together a card for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.  Thank you once again for stopping by on Thanksgiving.  Go on and enjoy the rest of your day.

A Free Fall with SIP Challenge #22


For the first time in many years, we are cooking up an (unexpected) Thanksgiving feast and I’ll be making cute little bags with a gift inside that shows my Thankfulness.  What is that gift?  You’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to find out what it is.  However, it’s handmade…you know it!

Stamp Ink Paper Challege

I just want to say that I’m so happy and proud of y’all that participated in our challenges last week. I was in complete awe of the beautiful entries this last week. Thank you and I look forward to many more.  See you at the Stamp Ink Paper challenge!

Give Thanks with More Blog Candy


Throughout my life my parents served as my guides, mentors, and teachers. I experienced life through their eyes with their lessons of love and thankfulness.

In my culture we did not grow up viewing the Thanksgiving holiday as a time where we sat around the table speaking out loud of what we where thankful for. It isn’t a negative experience, but now reflecting on what being thankful for really means, I am humbled to have parents who taught me the meaning of appreciation, gratefulness, and sincerity through their actions. To us, it was just a holiday and we didn’t have to go to school. LOL. I loved every minute of it.

For that, I give thanks.


I’ve had the Four Feathers stamp set and framelits since they were initially introduced (benefits of being a demo), but never used them until now. I absolutely love them because they can be used year round and not just in the Fall. Soon I’ll be making a few cards for my Air Force friends who have achieved the highest enlisted rank in the military (E-9) aka Chief Master Sergeant.

MAGGIE MADE THOUGHTS: Simple Suggestions I Use

  • Use White Stazon craft ink on dark card stock to add a boldness and a masculine feel to any card.
  • When in doubt just add any color ribbon to Burlap ribbon to give it dimension and texture at the same time. Genius!
  • For an antique look antique brushed brads work wonders!

Stampin’ Up! Product Recipe:

So Grateful for You!


I love doing card/sketch challenges, but color challenges scare me.  But don’t tell anyone because I’ll deny it…LOL.  These challenges take me a very long time, but I love it because they do exactly what they’re meant to do – CHALLENGE me. =)


I placed pearls on the acorn because I made a boo boo on the paper trying to place white curvy lines to give the acorn some dimension.  But since there are no mistakes in card making it came out perfect don’t you think?

A Spanish Thanksgiving with Mojo Monday

Fall.  A time to post and show all the different colors of coordinating card stock that go beautifully with the designer series paper.  It’s my favorite time of year because of all deep rich colors that come with the crisp air with the coming of Winter.  I grew up in sunny Southern California, but my favorite time of year is Fall and Winter.  I must’ve been a native of Alaska in a previous life… LoL.

As most of you know, I truly enjoy participating in card sketch challenges because it allows me to grow my imagination and a chance to win a blog badge.  It’s a stampers prized possession… LoL.  This card was made for the Mojo Monday 266 challeng.  Let me know what you think of it by leaving a comment.

To create my lovely Fall card I used the Spanish Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched out a 1″ circle to compliment the 1 3/4 scallop circle, and added a the little flower stamp from the Tiny Tags stamp collection.  The Orchard Harvest designer series paper is perfect for making Fall cards.  I know you will love it as much as I did.
