New Card Ideas
This card was made for a friend whose husband raised peacocks. I used a stamp set
that just retired, some gold foil cut using a thinlit, a doily and sequins along with a glittery ribbo
that also retired as of June 1st.
I made this card out of several items that I had in stock. I didn't have a graduation set so when
that happens we just have to be creative!
This card was created using Lovely as a Tree and Seasonal Layers thinlit. I simply sponged on the background and stamped the trees on top then glued the chairs in place. I love how it turned out!
I recently got invited to a housewarming party. I had nothing that would work for a card but found an image from a long ago retired stamp set and worked around it to create this card.
Thanks for looking. I hope you enjoyed my recent creations and hopefully you will get
inspired to get into your stamping rooms!

2018 OnStage - Milwaukee, Wisconsin
I just returned from Stampin Up's Midwest Regional Conference in Milwaukee. I am so stoked about the new catalog and all the new products that will be available June 1st! I'd like to thank my roommates Deb, Norma and Christine for such a fun time! I received some darling "Pillow Gifts" the night we stayed at the Springhill Suites by Marriott downtown Milwaukee.
My group, the "Madison Area Stamping Stars" held a group swap. These cards should give you some ideas for card designs.
Sorry I can't share pictures of cards made with new stamp sets. I will as soon as I can. Be sure to come back soon!
I received some awesome gifts just for attending. We received a very cute shoulder bag for carrying all of our goodies along with a new stamp set, planner, pens and lighted tabletop message board for craft shows, events, etc.

The new catalogs were passed out with lots of excitement in the room. One of the best reasons for attending the event is to receive the catalog 2 months ahead of when it goes live and to be able to pre-order select items April 9th!
We enjoyed watching employees from the home office and select demonstrators make some very cute cards sharing new and exciting techniques.

We had some stamping time both in the morning and afternoon. We made 2 in the morning session and 2 in the afternoon. Sorry but I can't share them here yet! Stampin Up always supplys a box lunch with a cookie or brownie for dessert along with a bottle of water. During lunch time we can wander around trading cards, visiting and/or taking pictures of the display boards of numerous cards and new products.

If you would love to be included in a group like this be sure to check back here soon. I am looking for that special person to join my group. We have monthly group stamping events in Madison and quarterly local stamping events. The next one is in Mc Farland in June. The 30th Anniversary Celebration of Stampin Up will be held in Orlando in November. I am planning to attend with others from my group. Join us!

Here is a couple of ideas for St. Patrick's Day.
I made this card with large hearts cut out of DSP and the smaller ones out of Garden Green CS.
The tail was cut from a matching ribbon. I used the greeting from Tiny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I embossed the edges and raised it up with dimensionals.
