I need help folks

Can you all email me and tell me if you receive my posts?  Just use my name that is in blue in the upper right column and let me know okay?  And tell me who you are  and if you have joined my blog.  Thank you!  Jan

Goooooooooooooooood Morning!

I hope you all are having a great morning, after all it is one day before hump day!  (The middle of the week: Wednesday).  I have a confession to make ... this is my second time writing this morning.  I lost the first one ... and sorry to say it was a goooooooooooooood one!  Now I must say it all again.

The main thing I needed to tell all of you is this:  I found out that PayPal is as far as I can go with the payment choices, without opening a business account.  Which is pretty pricey at this time for me.  So!  For those of you who want or need to pay your purchases with a credit card, you can click on my Etsy button and it will take you to Etsy which has those features for you. 

Meanwhile back in blog-land; I can take your payment through PayPal.  It is a two step process (not hard - but again a two step process).  Since it is, I am giving you a $1.00 off your purchases.  The steps are super easy:

1. Make your payment by clicking on the PayPal button, and send your money.  (You must have a PayPal account.  If you do not have one, you can set up one easily and it is free).
2. Send me an address to where to send your stamps.  Click on my name under the PayPal button and just give me your name and address and what you purchased.  I will send your stamps out to you pronto!

Shipping is always $3.00 for up to four sets of stamps.  Then $4.00 after that up to 6 sets.  

I still need to set up a page with all my stamps and their prices.  A woman's work is never done!  Isn't that true, well isn't it? 

I have a couple of cards to share with you.

 This card is a product of last Sunday's challenge on Splitcoaststamper website.  Each Sunday the hostess picks someone's gallery, and we pick one card out of her gallery and case (copy) it.  We can make changes to make it our own.  Tracie was chosen last week, and I turned my card to the side and changed the colors.  The stamp is from my 'Cat' set and screamed to me for gold!  Starting with the kitty's face, I heat embossed it in gold.  I then chose papers in the bars/stripes of the layout, and chose DP (Design Paper) that had gold foil in it. Topped it off with a gold crown (but of course), and two gold fleur de lis.  I hope this gives you some inspiration to make a card as well.

By the way, Tracie asked me if I would come out with a 'Dog' set.  I told her yes, I will try to come out with a dog set soon!  So all of you dog lovers; watch for it!


This of course was taken from the 'Apple' set, no mystery there!  However the photo deceives this morning.  The apple is colored in metallic gold pen, with the seeds inside silver stickles.  The DP (Design Paper), has gold foil in it, and inside the circle of gold foil, are silver stickles.  Last but not least, we have silver and gold glittered flowers on threads of gold.  I think it all ties in wonderfully with the Scripture verse that is on the card. 

Well I have a lot of work still left to do, to make this a blog for you all to come back to and visit.  May God bless you today!  Thank you for stopping by.  Jan

It is a BEAUTIFUL day here in Arkansas!

I hope you are all having a beautiful day where ever you may be!

I have GREAT NEWS to share today!!!  Lisa Swarm has agreed to become my Design Team Member!  She is super talented at handcrafting!  A very busy girl, and a true blue friend!!  I know you will enjoy every card she creates for us!!

To get to know her better, see her information on the left column.

Today we have Lisa's card using the Baby Jesus out of the Christmas Set.  I am so honored to show you this GORGEOUS card!!  I hope you will comment and tell us how much you love her creation today!

In Lisa words: 

Stamped baby Jesus image and colored with copics. Die cut with the 'Our Daily Bread Design' oval die.  Used the 'Gina Marie' quilt die and a couple different blues to match the blues in this image I colored.

Finished the quilt with the Image on Dimensionals and stamped the great sentiment in blue to match the papers and image and added a die cut star out of silver DP (Design Paper) and score lines on either side of the sentiment.

Again I hope you will comment and welcome Lisa, I am super charged that she has joined my blog!  Remember these stamps are made available to you on Etsy and Ebay!  On the Ebay, when you click 'See other items' on the right hand upper side, you can see the rest of the stamp sets.

Well I know it is late! But I have to share!

I have new cards to show you with the new stamps that you see from yesterday's post.  So without more 'talking'  I will show you what I made!

Can you believe it?  This tree stamp can be almost any tree you want it to be!  I made it  an apple tree on top in the red, and an orange tree on the bottom with the orange.  Although it looks difficult this is an easy image to color.  This is a 5" X 5"  sized card.  The oval die is a Gina Marie Scallop Ovals die set.

Here is another one from the Cat Set. 

I really love these stamps, look at this kitty's expression -- if that doesn't melt your heart!!  So Precious, and that is why I named my kitty Precious. 

I will try and have more made tomorrow sometime.  I hope you are enjoying this blog - I would LOVE to hear from any of you.  Letting me know what you think, or what you would like to see.

May God bless you!

More Stamp Sets Available!!!

Hi!  Two more sets are available for purchase!!  I already have it listed on my Etsy store.  Monday hopefully everything will get set up the way it should.  I am so looking forward to that!  I know you are too!

These two stamp sets are bigger than the Christmas and Courage sets are.  But for a limited time only I am selling them at the same price as the smaller sets.

I sure hope you like what you see!  Any comments are welcome!!!  If you have something you might like to see made into a stamp - let me know!  Maybe I can come up with something.  You never know if you don't ask!!

My first set is the Apple Set:

As you can see the stamps are a bit bigger; you have 7 stamps in this set.

The second set is Cats:  This set has 8 stamps.

Now you would think my next set would be about dogs ... but it may come at a later time.  We will see!

Quality Acrylic Stamps. Easy to use with Acrylic Blocks or Misti.

I have been creating handcrafted cards for over five years now. I am branching out into making my own designed stamps for others to buy and use. These stamps are also good for those who make paper crafts, and do scrapbooking as well. Watch as I come out with more sets for your creativity!! 

I hope you like what you see and that you will comment on my blog and let me know your thoughts!!
God bless!  Jan

Although just one more card today ...

I am excited to share it with you! 

The image of the girl is from Unity, and they carry a large variety of stamps.  This girl is one of them, and is easy to color.  You know so much of our advertisement on the social media tell us to be somebody else, to have what someone else has, to act like someone else, to do what they do.  God created us to be different in Him; He has a different plan for all of us.  Jeremiah 29:11.  I am excited that this stamps reminds us of this. 

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!  God bless!  Jan

Slowly I am getting there...

Good afternoon everyone!  I finally have a card to show you; made with two of the 'Courage' set stamps.  I had a set back this week; that I have worked on.  But as soon as I get it cleared up - I will be back to make more cards out of this set for you to be inspired!!

Please remember I am still setting up everything, there will be more to come and maybe even a free stamps set sent out to a lucky stamper!  Unfortunately I was not born with one single technical bone in my body.  So I will have to call someone to come and set some things up for me and show me how to use them.

As I am sure you have all heard about the horrible tragedy that happened in Las Vegas.  This card is heading to the Police Dept there to uplift those courageous men and women of the Vegas Police Dept.


 As you can see the lion's head and the Courage sentiment is on the front cover of the card.  Inside I have stamped the Deuteronomy 31:6.

I hope this inspires!  I will try to be back before the week is gone - that is a huge TRY.  God bless!  Jan

I just opened my ETSY SHOP; where I am selling my Christmas stamps.  If anyone is interesting just click on the Etsy link at the far right top corner to shop!  Look forward to another set to arrive soon!

These stamps enables you to fuse Christianity and Creativity together!

Thank you in advance!!
God bless!

Patience ... Patience

Not my strong suit.  I am still waiting for some information before I can fully get my stamps launched.  The best way to get them now is Ebay. 

I am a member of the Splitcoaststampers.  And today our host is Diane who gave us this wonderful sketch to follow. 

Here is my take on today's challenge!

This cute angel stamp is made by Unity, I colored it with Spectrum Noir pens, and decorated with silver stickles.  The design paper is called, Craft Smith.  My good friend Lisa bought for me a year or two ago... It is almost gone and I will need to go searching for it before too long to buy.  The blue card stock is from Stampin' Up.  Which is a nice thick paper which is excellent for handcrafted cards.  Although this card is done in nontraditional Christmas colors, I think it still looks nice.  I hope to hear from you --- tell me what you do and don't like. 

God bless!  Jan

As promised -- I have some exciting news to share with you!

I have started a business of designing my own stamps and have one set ready to sell.  I am in the process of another set coming soon!

I am also in the process of figuring out how to set up a PayPal account for you to use, if you want to buy a set.  (Anyone out there who knows how - I sure could use your help!).

So here is my Christmas set, I have ready to sell right now!

I also have some inspiration for you to look at.  

I love this stamp, 'O Holy Night' because it is small; and can fit on a card so much easier and you have plenty of room to make your focal point.  My focal on this card are the stars, and baby Jesus.

I have to say this card is my favorite of the three!  I love that we can use this 'O Come Let Us Adore Him!' as a focal point; but I am sure many of you could find other ways to use it as well.  Isn't that bow a beautiful show-stopper for those poinsettias?  

I love the way that I could use a light gray for the music and then place on top one of my favorite Christmas songs of all time, 'What Child Is This?'  Again I used baby Jesus, which I think is a simple and easy image to color and fit almost anywhere on a card.  It is a wonderful way to proclaim the birth of our Lord.

I hope you enjoy looking at these cards, I hope they inspire you.  And maybe you would like to buy a set for yourself!  Right now I have them selling on E-bay, until I can hear from PayPal and find out how to install a way for you to make a payment right here on my blog.  Here is a link for those of you who are interested.
Ebay link There is an option to make an offer, if that interest you.

It is almost Christmas, getting a head start on making Christmas cards is a smart idea!  

I hope to hear from you -- a comment is always welcomed!!
God bless!  Jan

May she rest in peace:  2012 - September 2017.

I do have some exciting news and will be back!  So don't go away - come back to visit, this isn't the end!
