Fun times with stamping friends!

When the power is out...

I'm so thankful that rubber stamping doesn't require electricity.  Well, unless you had your heart set on heat embossing, that is. 

The power at my house went out almost an hour ago, and so I'm busy doing what I can without it. Catching up on some stamping preparations!

Hopefully the power is back on soon enough for me to take care of vacuuming before I have guests show up.

Get ready for Sale-a-Bration 2015

It's almost here!  The biggest sale of the Stampin' Up! year, Sale-a-Bration (SAB).  It starts tomorrow and runs through March 31st.  This years SAB is amazing, and there isn't anything in the brochure that I don't like.

Here is a sneak peak at just one of those items, Lotus Blossom.  It's a photopolymer stamp set and it's a 2-step stamp set too.

I used only 3 colors of ink to get this look; Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
