Days are getting shorter here in Southern Wisconsin so maybe you’re are looking for a little fun entertainment! How about a couple games of Bingo…and to make it even more fun, I’ve made this Stampin’ Bingo! and to make it even easier, it’s Stampin’ Virtual Bingo! We will meet on Monday, Sept 20th @ 7pm for Stampin’ Virtual Bingo. Prior to the event, You will receive about $40 in product, including the Feels Like Home SAB stamp set, which will in turn be used to create the three make and takes that I will supply the kits for! (yes you can make substitutions if you already own the product). And of course, 6…yes I said 6 games of Bingo..with fabulous prizes! OF course. Could it be any more fun!
Today is the last day that you can register for Bingo..
I need time to get your goodies out to you in time for Bingo. 🙂
The weather is a changing here in Southern Wisconsin. It’s dry, cool and absolutely gorgeous…but it is sweatshirt weather today. It’s giving me the urge to switch out my seasonal decorations to a fall “vibe”. Bring on the apple cider donuts and pumpkin spice lattes and we will be set! Typically I have 3-4 areas of the house that I switch out for the seasons, my mantle, my front & side doors, the harvest table and a spot on the kitchen counter…that’s my goal anyway. So hopefully I can get this late summer porch one switched out.
Sunflowers are from my garden and it’s kind of a game to repurpose things I have on hand to recreate each season. I set aside a few bucks for “new” things but I need to find the rest from the stash. I don’t include flowers in the budget because I consider that mental health and there is no price on mental health. They make me happy and life’s to short not to have flowers. So on the list this weekend, is a visit to Eberts, one of my favorite fall jaunts for mums and I will pull a few pumpkins and gourds from the garden as well this weekend. I’ll keep you posted. I really don’t decorate for Halloween in the spooky sense. I don’t like skeletons on my porch or in my closet for that matter…no dead bodies wrapped in plastic hanging from trees either! I kid you not…I saw those last fall! Ewwwww….but I did see some fun gauzy lawn ghosts on Pinterest that might be fun but I have a tendency to stick to flowers and jack-o-lanterns. So the Cutest Halloween suite of products is up my alley. Not scary or spooky at all!
This suite of products happens to be my Card Stash Door Dash Delivery Service for Sept. What’s a CSDDDS you ask? It’s my card class to go! A 12 card PDF, a bunch of swag AND 6 cards supplies, prepped and ready for creating.
Registration is open thru Sept 20th. Kits will be mailed by Sept 30th…Just in time for Halloween creating!
Ahh…peace and quiet here in the studio this morning. Ella’s back in school, Rob’s off to work and Denver’s working but packed up and headed out west hunting. Adria and Caleb are headed back to Utah today for the winter and it’s just the girls and I here….so there is ABSOLUTELY no excuse for a lack of productivity today. So…I’m back in the saddle. Here’s a sweet little card that we did for Coffee Klatsch this morning. Remember, you can join me every M, W, Th, & Friday for Coffee Klatsch at 9am CT….we share coffee, stories and obviously do a little stamping! Meet us on my stinkincutecards Facebook page.
So this little sheep from this morning… I love how it’s balancing on the fence….kinda like a gymnast. My amazing little gymnast is playing soccer at the moment. She’s got another new team this year…long story..another day but she’s had a new coach just about every year that she’s played soccer….hmmm…does that tell you something. Further more, most of the teachers she’s had in grade school retired the year after having Ella…Not sure if they wanted to go out with the best or if it was the catalyst for retirement. I will say that she’s spicy and a lot of fun…but I’m her mom and I love her. just kidding…she’s a good kid and she may give you attitude but will give you 100% and a lot of heart in what ever she does.
This past weekend she played in Rockford at the Puma Cup. They’ve combined the U16 & U17 so they have enough to roster a team. The U19’s were also short so several of the girls played 4 games on Saturday. Little Energizer Bunny was sore but smiling to the end. Walked away with 2nd place for their age group and helped the U19s win first. Going to tuck my sweet little card into her backpack tomorrow morning….just as a little I Love You….and to let her know we think she’s special and amazing!
I added a star to the chest of the Balancing Sheep along the lines of a gold medal or a gold star. Stinkin’ cute if I don’t say so myself.
Head over to my website if you need any of the supplies I’ve listed.

Sometimes we need a quick card and that’s when I would suggest using a “card sketch”. A card sketch is exactly what it sounds like…a card sketch. It’s when you take the elements of a card that appeals to you and use the elements and dimensions to create an entirely new card. That’s what I did on a recent Coffee Klatch.
Loved the layout of an ice cream card I had in the studio and needed something quick for my klatch that was to start in 15 minutes! Nothing like waiting until the last minute! Here’s the card that hatched from the sketch. I love it! Now it’s your turn…take this card sketch and create a fun new version!
And should you want to replicate my card exactly..here’s the supplies I used.
I posted a few details last week about this month’s Card Stash Door Dash Delivery Service…you know that mailable kit all my peeps are talking about?! This month we’ve chosen to do Hand-Penned Petals and it’s quickly becoming one of my all time favorite flower sets. It’s GOOORRGEOUS.. So you know the drill…each month a collaboration of demos and I pick a stamp set to create with. We make 12 cards, type up a PDF and then I put together a swag bag of products from the supplies and cut cardstock for 6 cards (2 of 3 designs), package it all up and voila…Card Stash Door Dash Delivery Service and instead of me bringing in to you on a cute little Vespa scooter, your trusty USPS employee will deliver it right to your mailbox. (while the vespa is a cute idea, the reality of helmet hair just isn’t working for me)
So you have until May 20th to order the Hand-Penned Petals mailable Card Stash Door Dash kit. I will have it in the mail by the 30th. Here’s what’s included in this month’s CSDDDS kit
Card Stash Door Dash Delivery Service May– $22

And here’s a little sneak peek at one of the cards in the CSDDDS kit this month…seriously folks, you don’t want to miss this awesome mailable class!
I’m so excited to announce May’s Card Stash….this is a ‘to-go” class that’s delivered right to your door. What a novel concept. I know that so many of you love coming to class here in the studio and with the New Buffet Format, even MORE! but sometimes you just need cards that you can complete at your leisure and in the comfort of your jammies, at the cabin, on vacation or on a Bad Hair Don’t Care kind of day…and that’s where the Card Stash Monthly class kits come in.
I’ve got a PDF with 12 fabulous cards and I pick 3 cards that I think would be fun to make, cut and prep them x2 (6 cards total) and then put together a bunch of swag so that you can make most of the remaining 9 cards if desired with a few additional items and cardstock. All that get email and snail mailed out to you. I usually post the stamp set, products needed, swag to be received and a registration link around the first of the month. Registration is open until the 20th at which time I start prepping the swag kits and will mail them out to you!
This month is the Hand-Penned set. It’s amazing and it’s one of the things you can order tomorrow when our new catalog goes live! This kit is so soft and springy that I just couldn’t stop playing with it. I think you will love the cards done in this Card Stash Door Dash.
