Guess what I did yesterday?  Cleaned my stamp studio.  I honestly don’t know how I have been able to do anything in my room.  I also had a wonderful girl, Morgan, coming over who just got engaged and she asked if I would help create her wedding invitations.  I was so tickled to be able to do this for her.  Morgan was in “9 to 5 the Musical” with me and I absolutely fell in love with this girl.  To design these wedding invites is going to be a lot of fun with her.

My priorities got a little off whack and I do have some thank you cards to get mailed out but I needed a clean space to work on them.  Ahhh, it’s clean and ready for me to work again.  If you placed an order with me, your thank you will be in the mail over the weekend.  🙂

That’s it for me!  Have a wonderful weekend my sweet friends!  I hope you know how much I love and appreciate you all!  Mwah!  See ya Monday!

Are you ready to learn how?  Here we go!

TEACH me That! A new series by the Technique Design Team. Learn a new technique every Thursday at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com.

  • Die cut your favorite Framelit or Thinlit from cardstock.  I used the Butterflies Thinlits.

TEACH me that! Learn the Packing Tape Glitter Technique at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the April 13, 2017 blog post

  • Place the die cut face down on your Silicone Craft Sheet.  Cover the die cut with packing tape.  If you need to add more to cover it all, it’s fine.  The seams of the packing tape won’t show.

  • Trim away the excess tape.  This is super easy to do because the die cut works with you as you cut.TEACH me that! Learn the Packing Tape Glitter Technique at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the April 13, 2017 blog post

I do hope that everyone is enjoying the Teach Me That series.  

There was some confusion last week when I shared the ZenDoodle technique.  Some of you may have seen the project on someone else’s blog.  I should have mentioned it on my first post but I am on the Technique Design Team and we do share the techniques and projects we create with each other.  Sometimes we create new cards and other times we will share each other’s projects.  The goal is to teach you new techniques and I hope that the Technique Design Team is doing just that.

So, if you see projects here at Simply Simple Stamping and on another blog, no reason to be alarmed. We are just demonstrators who LOVE to share what we love with each other and on each other’s blogs.

PROUD MOM MOMENT!  Wow!  The musical that Christina is in right now (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) got a review on BroadwayWorld.com.  This is a HUGE deal!  It would be like getting one my cards published in a stamping magazine.

Let me share what they said about Christina, who plays Jolene….

“Jolene is the other wealthy woman who finds herself in the middle of Lawrence’s schemes. She is played by Christina Stewart, who brings energy and charisma to spare to the role. Stewart is clearly having a lot of fun with the part and her big song and dance number, “Oklahoma,” is one of the show’s most entertaining.”

Did you see that?  Her big song and dance number is one of the show’s most entertaining!  I am so incredibly proud of her.

Make It in Minutes FLASH CARD 2.0 – Beehives & Bumblebees – Video No. 78

MAKE IT IN MINUTES - a new video series from Connie Stewart, featuring great cards and gifts made in minutes! Check it out at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

Ever since I saw the Hexagon Embossing Folder I thought it looked like a beehive.  That sweet little bumblebee in the Dragonfly Dreams bundle was just the right size to go inside my Oval Framelit beehive.

This Flash Card 2.0 was just the right size to create that beehive AND I had enough scrap to cut out my bees.

The Gold Wink of Stella is a must on this card because it added that beautiful shimmer to the wings and separates the colors from the Crushed Curry beehive.

Gotta stamp the inside of the card too!

Let me share today’s video with you….

Here the measurements for my card in case you missed them:

  • Thick Whisper White – 8 ½” x 5 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”
  • Crushed Curry – 2 ⅛” x 5 ½”, cut down to 4 ¼

FLASH CARD – Fluttering Butterfly – Video No. 92

Yesterday I shared a card in my 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video that several of you asked about.  I decided to use the technique and turn it into a Flash Card with a different framelit. It turned out so pretty!

This is the Butterflies Thinlit set and the Sheltering Tree stamp.  Could it be any easier?

I used Teeny Tiny Wishes so that I could get really creative with the sentiments.  There are 24 sentiments in that stamp set so the possibilities go on and on!

Let’s get doing with today’s FLASH CARD video….

 

Here are my measurements in case you missed them.

  • Pool Party Cardstock – 11″ x 4 ¼”, scored and folded at 5 ½”

Now or WOW Flash Card – With Sympathy Dragonfly – Video No. 89

Now or WOW - a new series by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

Sympathy cards are not the cards we want to ‘make’ but the fact is, they are the most important cards we make.  Today’s NOW or WOW card will showcase a very simple sympathy card.

Let’s start with the NOW card.

Dragonfly Dreams has been one of our most popular bundles in the Occasions catalog and when you see the detail in the dragonfly, you can see why it’s a hit.

This card has a nice soft touch to it with those faded dots.

A little “pop” of the dragonfly and in minutes you have a sympathy card ready to mail.

Oooh, but look at the WOW card!  

I love the texture the Hexagon Embossing Folder gave to the Blushing Bride cardstock.

The Gold Wink of Stella made a tremendous difference in the dragonfly.

And to tie in the gold, I added Gold Metallic Thread and Metallic Enamel Shapes.  It truly is a WOW card.

Let me share today’s NOW or WOW video with you….

 

Here are my measurements in case you missed them:

  • Mint Macaron Card base – 8 ½” x 5 ½”, score and fold at 4 ¼”
  • Blushing Bride Flash Card – 4 ¼” x 2 ¾”
  • Very Vanilla Flash Card – 4″ x 2 ½”

WARNING! BRAGGING MOM MOMENT!  I mentioned yesterday that I was heading out to see Ginny play Maria in her high school production of “Sound of Music”. I just want to scream from the rooftop how AMAZING SHE WAS!!!  I know, you’re siting there saying that any mom would say that but GUYS, SHE WAS SO AMAZING!  Not gonna lie, I bawled through the entire show.  I was just so proud of her.  The entire cast did a great job but this mom was just memorized by Ginny. She has such a beautiful voice.  You need to know that she got this talent from my Dad, not me.  My Dad was a very talented singer…. and I know he is in heaven bragging to everyone about his granddaughter’s performance.

Can I share another story that warmed my heart?  This was a school performance so it was all high school kids.  I found a chair next to an older woman and her wheelchair bound husband.  As we waited for the show to begin we struck up a conversation and she was the choir director’s mom.  Her husband had a severe stroke a year ago and just getting him to the show was a chore but “Sound of Music” is his favorite musical.  

As the opening music started, and Ginny came out singing “The Hills are Alive”, this sweet man burst into song.  Don’t misunderstand, he wasn’t loud, but he was so moved by the music that he just had to sing.  His wife would lean over and whisper, “Honey, don’t sing, don’t sing” so he hummed…. the most beautiful hums I have ever heard.  What blessed me was that this man, who due to this stroke couldn’t communicate or comprehend our conversation…. but music he understood.  He knew EVERY word to every song.  Okay, so I am bawling as I type this but to see the POWER music has in our lives and how this man couldn’t even speak… but he could sing….well, I just had no words, only tears of joy.
