This sweet set from the Celebration Catalog.....

just screamed to me "stained glass" technique!  So I gave it a try!
I really like how it turned out From Millan.Net

I just wish that there was a better way to adhere velum without the adhesive being seen and it doesn't matter that I used expensive velum tape, it still shows... 

I stamped the images using VersaMark and heat embossed the pewter embossing powder. Colored the image inside the embossed edges.

Sets: So Very Grateful and Lots of Thanks

Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White and Vellum cardstock.

Ink/Markers: Crisp Cantaloupe, Primrose Petals, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.

From Millan.Net  Thanks for letting me keep on yappin' bout Stampin'

Haven't been sitting on my "crafting" laurels for the last two months

Hey Yappin' Stampers:

As stated in my previous post, I had not been able to post for the last 2 months, but I have actually been doing a lot of paper crafting.

I will start by sharing what kept me busily distracted and happy during a cold, very rainy and drizzly day here in the great NW last weekend:


I wasn't really to sure about washi tape when it become popular, I was like  From Millan.Net, what is the attraction, but it is a go to for some added pizzazz for  me now!!!

Here are the dets:  
From Millan.Net

Stamp set:  Vivid Vases (Occasions Catalog).

Inks:  Black Stazon;  SU Stampin' Write Markers: Pear Pizzazz, 
Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe, Wisteria Wonder and Tangerine Tango.

Paper: Whisper White and Real Red,

Supplies/accessories: 2 1/2" circle punch, 3" Sizzix Circle originals die, Simply Scored Scoring Board/tool, Paper piercing tool and Deco labels Collection (cut down), basic rhinestone and real red brads.

Washi Tape: Season of Style,  and Watercolor Wonder.

WASHI has won me over and now I look for other uses for it including holding my broken camera together, it looks more "stylish" than it did with blue painters tape!

Thanks for Yappin' bout Stampin' with me!

I'm Back!

Hi Yappin’ Stampers! 
Since New Year’s I have heard, as you probably had as well, all “the new” you ads ~~~  you know the ones: “new you” new car, “new you” new gym, “new you” with Botox!

Well to me the “new you” was to post regularly on this blog, but and a BIG BUT, I got a new computer for Christmas and went with Google Chrome.  Google Chrome didn't play nice with Blogger and the navbar disappeared, which gave me no way to into the blog!   No way to update it and no way to do new posts, etc.

I have spent the last two months, sporadically, trying to find a way to fix it.   Nothing I found on the internet helped, argh! I would just give up with frustration, but I would try again as I couldn't let the whole situation get the best of me.

I kept, obsessively, trying not wanting to give up!  Then I had an epiphany! Maybe there were hidden cookies that I couldn't delete.  I tried to fix it on a different computer and Voila! It worked!

I am back to become the “new you of me” to post more often!
Thanks for listening about my journey to do more Yappin’ about Stampin'
