Your Next Stamp Mini Card Video's and Pictures!

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

  Today's project is my take on the mini card presented by Your Next Stamp.  There is a step by step tutorial on this project on their site.  When you visit their website, just click on the "blog" section to see what fun things they have for you to enjoy!  I hope to participate in their sketch challenge this week.

  I used Express-it blending card stock for my die cutting and copic coloring.  The images were stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink.  You simply place the die just above the fold of the card stock and cut it out to make the mini card.  You then stamp the image onto another piece of card stock and die cut it.  After coloring, simply layer it atop the base.  It is a quick and easy project.  You could even use some of their smaller sentiments inside the card or just a sweet little I love you note.  This is a project clearly designed to make the recipient smile.

  I also received my planner swap back from Candace.  To see the video of the items I sent her, please click here.   To see the video of what I received from Candace enjoy this video:

  One last share today.  I am a member of the die cut and stamp club for the Stamps of life.    This month marked the second year I have been a member and I received a really nice 2nd year gift.  Their stamps and dies are just adorable.  I hope you will check them out.  Enjoy the video of the stamps and dies I received from them below:

  Stamp Happy and be a blessing.  If you'd like, please rate, comment and subscribe to my youtube channel. If you have any questions please email me at  To avoid your email going into my "spam" folder, please put You tube or blog question in the subject line.

Have a great week!

Planner Accessory Swap

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

  I am doing a swap with Candace Scarbough.  It was my turn to choose our swap and I decided on doing some Planner Accessories. There are several of this type of swap online and I modeled this one after those.

  The stamp set shown above is from My Favorite Things. I used address and shipping label's to stamp onto.I also die cut shapes for this swap.  I do plan to do more things with the package I am going to send to Candace, however, I will be saving those for her as a surprise.

  Here is the video.  I apologize that the video/audio are not in sync.  I have recently purchased a new video camera and am unsure why the video track shows up with the media player but not the movie maker program.  If you know how to remedy the problem, please feel free to let me know.

  If you would like to contact me, please email me directly at: .  Please rate my videos, subscribe and thumbs up!  Stamp Happy and be a blessing!

HAUL -- from Your Next Stamp

Thursday, February 19, 2015

Hello Friends!

Before I get into the haul I made from Your Next Stamp,  I wanted to share a picture of the Valentines Day card I made for my son Chad.

Mike and I have been busy the last several weeks.  He had to work in New Jersey and sadly while we were there we found out his uncle in Iowa had passed away.  We made a last minute decision to fly out to the Midwest.  It was great to see his family and meet some family members I had not previously had the pleasure of meeting.

When we arrived back home we had to quickly re-pack and fly out to San Diego. We had already planned this trip to go see the newest member of our family, Alice.  That is 5 plane rides in less than 10 days.

I have another order from Your Next Stamp on the way.  I wanted to share with you the products I just purchased, so I filmed a video.  For some reason, I am not able to get the audio file on Movie Maker to play, so I just did an overview with a voice over.  I hope you will enjoy it.

As always should you have questions, please contact me via email:

Stamp Happy and Be a blessing!

There will be a separate post for the swaps that have come in and they will be swapped out soon.  I am awaiting just one more swap to arrive and they will all go postal.  Thank you ladies for participating in my swap.
