Count My Blessings

When the Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog first arrived, my heart did a little flip flop for the Count My Blessings stamp set.

The images are simply gorgeous. To make them easier to watercolor, I embossed them in gold. The gold was hard to capture on camera, but here you can see it better. Embossing also makes them easier to fussy cut.

To watercolor the acorn, I used ink squished into the lid of my stamp pad and an aqua painter. I also did a watercolor wash on the cardstock behind the fancy foil.

Our October Stamp of the Month Club members will receive the supplies to make this card along with three others.

Speaking of blessings at the top of my list, the Stamp of the Month Club continues to grow and I’m so thankful for all of our lovely members. Thank you all!

Hello friends! How are you today?

The stamp of the Month Club is finally back! A huge thank you to all of our club members for being so understanding and gracious as I took time to care for my son these past couple months. Your support, thoughts, and prayers have truly meant so much and helped to get me through some very dark days. Now our days are full of hope and he continues to recover, which means…

I have time and energy to make stuff- yay! February’s club features the beautiful Blooms and Wishes stamp set:

The beautiful watercolor florals look great in the colors below, or club members can use the colors of their choice. After stamping the images on watercolor paper, I used my aqua painter to pull the color out. This fun watercolor technique is completely optional. The images look gorgeous with or without this technique.

The October Stamp of the Month Club features the beautiful new Basket of Wishes stamps set shown on page 49 of the new Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog. I fell in love with the layouts of the cards shown in the catalog on the same page, so I created my cards based off of them:

October’s ink colors are show above, with crumb cake being the only stamp color and the others being used to color the images with blender pens and ink squished into the lids of the ink pads. I fell in love with the beautiful drawings in this set the moment I saw it and they look beautiful colored or you can leave them plain, if you prefer.

P.S.

I’m a little behind schedule with posting the Stamp of the Month Club and I hope you will accept my sincere apology! My oldest son is not back to health yet and I am struggling to be creative because his illness has been life threatening. Last Friday he had to go back in the hospital, but is home again. He has a new doctor and hopefully we are on the track to getting him well again. On a happy note, my daughter’s heart surgery is healing well and her doctor says it was a complete success! Our littlest one’s surgery was also a complete success and he is back to normal. Many of you have sent your support and prayers for our family and I can not thank you enough!

September Stamp of the Month Club and a Plea for Prayer

Designer Tin of Cards 2 stampin365.com

Hello freinds, how are you? I’m a mess. A big, fat, ugly mess.

My 19 year old son, Thomas, who has cerebral palsy, is in the hospital with no diagnosis. It will be two weeks tomorrow since he went to the ER. He has had delirium, fever, and severe agony. They have run every test imaginable, all have been normal. It is literally the hardest thing I have ever witnessed.

On top of that, our seven year old had scheduled open heart surgery August 5th. She did very well and is recovering like a little champ. Her surgeon did not want to wait and, in fact, said she could have had a heart attack, but now her heart will be healthy and strong. She will even be able to do sports when she recovers- which is such good news.

If you follow my blog, you will also know that our three year old son had surgery on July 19th and was not allowed off the couch for two weeks while he recovered. His surgery was successful and he is doing great.

But, as they say, the show must go on, so here is our September Stamp of the Month Club.

Designer Tin of Cards stampin365.com

September will feature the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set, which has some really great sentiments to add to your collection. If you are like me, you can always use more sayings to choose from when making your cards. If you are a club member and already have this set, no problem! Just email me at stampin365@gmail.com and let me know which set you would like to substitute with. (up to $26)

Because I am at the hospital with my son, I can not take any new member this month, I am so sorry. I will however, still send out the invoices on the 15th of August and get the kits in the mail to our current club members the first week of September.

If you would, please say a prayer for my incredible boy. Watching him suffer is the hardest thing I have ever had to do.

Michelle
