2-Minute Tuesday Tip – Make your Photopolymer Stamps Sticky Again

Rain, Rain, Go Away…. Don’t You Know it’s Tuesday?Rain Rain Go Away

I am SO bummed.  I have the COOLEST idea to share with you for today’s 2-Minute Tuesday Tip but the rain and thunder won’t let me.  Errr.  Every time I try to film it, I get a big clap of thunder or the rain is so loud that I can’t even hear myself talk.  I will have to postpone today’s video so I decided to pull one of my favorite 2-Minute Tuesday Tip videos that you may have forgotten about.

This is probably one of my favorite tips ever!  I did receive some flack from some viewers who thought for sure I was harming my stamps using this method but while I was touring the Stampin’ Up manufacturing plant I talked to them and I was assured it is 100% safe.

Let me share today’s video…

Could it be any simpler?  I really love this tip and I hope you find it helpful too.

Watch the rain stop as soon as I post this.  LOL

Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge

Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge! Join me! www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

Well, Thanksgiving is over, the leftovers fill the fridge…. and all the really good leftovers are long gone.

The Stewart’s have been enjoying a Thanksgiving escape to Broken Bow, Oklahoma for the week.  We rented a beautiful cabin for everyone but as luck would have it, Christina had to be at work at 6:00am for the Black Friday sale at Build-a-Bear.  Boo.

We were so bummed she couldn’t stay the entire week but if you’ve raised teenagers, you know there comes a time when you realize that family trips are a thing of the past. <sigh>  So, through the rain, sleet, and a little bit of snow, Christina & Ginny headed back to Oklahoma City last night.  This leaves just Mr. Awesome and I to enjoy the cabin alone.  Yeah, that’s nice too…. but we had really hoped for a full week as a family.

I am doing some stamping while I’m here.  I always love to bring my Paper Pumpkin boxes with me because they are SO easy to pack and everything I need is in the box.  What’s not to love about that?  And, this month’s kit is perfect because it’s full of great Christmas cards and that goes along with the Challenge for this weekend!

If you have some fun time this weekend, why not join in on the Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge.  It’s an easy one since I know everyone is really busy this weekend.

Show off your Christmas card for this year!  We all want to see it!

Here’s what I designed for this weekend’s challenge…

Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge for November 27, 2015 - join us at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

My card for Christmas this year was inspired by last week’s Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge.  I changed it up a little because I don’t have tons of time to create cards this year.  I still wanted lots of bling on my card so I used the Gold Foil Sheets and the Winter Wonderland Vellum Stack.  Talk about quick and easy cards but they have a BIG WOW factor to them.

Talk about a short and sweet supply list!  The only thing not listed was the Paper Pumpkin kit for November, Mistletoe & Holly.  It was a fantastic kit with a fabulous 6-piece stamp set included.

 

If you are a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber, below is a BONUS TUTORIAL for your kit this month.  I will follow-up with you after the first of December with 10-12 MORE tutorials so you will be overflowing with new ideas on how to use your Mistletoe & Holly stamp set!

If you’re not a subscriber, it would be the perfect SURPRISE GIFT for yourself!  Just think, a special gift delivered to your door every month.  Inside is beautiful Tiffany blue tissue paper to tear into and inside that tissue paper is an exclusive stamp set, ink spot(s), and everything you need for a fabulous 30-minute creative escape!  All the supplies are cut and ready for you to create!  Sounds good, huh?  Only $19.95 a month (plus tax – shipping is INCLUDED!) and this wonderful gift of creativity can be yours!  Each month you will receive about a dozen bonus tutorial (like the one below) so you won’t be without great ideas on how to use your Paper Pumpkin kit.  Can you believe all you get for only $19.95?

Well, my friends, I hope that you enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend!  If you’re traveling, be safe out there!  If you’re dealing with the in-laws, just bite your tongue and say to yourself, “just 2 more days, just 2 more days…”

See you all back here on Monday!

Here’s what I designed for this weekend’s challenge…

My Paper Pumpkin kit came in the mail yesterday and I couldn’t WAIT to jump in and play!  Since the stamps were already on my desk, why not use them in today’s sketch?

Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge for November 20, 2015 - join us at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

Gold embossing on the “Joy” and the sentiment.  The tiny berries came in my Paper Pumpkin kit and they give you TONS of them.  Why not use them?

This card was just so easy!  The vellum was already stamped in gold and it’s from the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack.

Are you a Paper Pumpkin subscriber and want to create this card?  Click a pic to order!

My next card was a lot of fun too.  I used stamp sets that was already on my desk, Cup of Cheer and Peaceful Wreath.
