Goodies & Review

Hi, everyone! was kind enough to send a few goodies my way to review and make a few cards with.  You may have found my blog through my YouTube video featuring some of these products.  If so, welcome! If you have not seen that video, please click HERE, and you will see some of these products in action.

Here are the cards I made using some of these products!

These are the products that sent me for a review! Affiliate links are provided below if you are interested in any of these products.  Affiliate links are used to support this blog and my YouTube channel at no cost to you by clicking them while you shop!

Thinlit Dies

The wafer thin dies are of excellent quality.  I used the Nested Star dies to make my card featured in my video. Using these, I experienced no issues with warping or bending. I will use the Nested Flowers in a different video soon!

Acrylic Block

I am a firm believer that you can never have enough acrylic blocks.  But I also believe they must be of excellent quality.  The acrylic block provided to me is EXCELLENT! It is thick, solid, and has grid lines! It has notches in the sides, so your fingers naturally fit around the block. I have big man hands, and I like blocks this thick because my fingerprints aren’t all over the card while stamping.  These blocks may be a bit bulky for individuals that may have arthritis or other hand sensitivities.

Black Premium Dye Ink

I am also a firm believer that you can never have enough black ink pads.  I think right now in my stash I have about ten different ones.  The ink pad provided by is pretty fantastic, and I would suggest purchasing it.  The ink is solid, and it gave a good crisp impression the first time as you can see in my video.  I will be reaching for this ink in the future.

Adhesive Glue Tape

The adhesive glue tape is good.  I rank it along with others, nothing special about it.  It glides well, and I didn’t experience any clogging or tearing.


All in all the products provided me to me by were of high quality and great value. I have ordered many supplies of my own from them and enjoy their customer service and quick mailing times. I would love to hear what you think about their products and services.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! Please see the links below for these products!

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 102

Hi everyone, welcome back this week to another great challenge.

Before I get started on my card, I wanted to announce the winner of my giveaway for last weeks blog entry. Unless I am mistaken, there were only two individuals that posted they came to my YouTube Channel from the blog. So good luck! You have a 50/50 chance of winning!

I wrote the two names on slips of paper, threw them in a bowl & had my dog Ivy choose the person. Whoever was stuck to her nose was the winner. I know, scientific, right?

And the winner is Christine Miller. Please email me at Provide me with your address and your new stamp set will be on the way. 🙂

On to this weeks card. This weeks challenge is hard for a lot of people. Making masculine cards can be hard because most of the stamping world provides items that are mostly feminine.

I used some Stampin Up products to make this card. I used the new wood grain designer paper that is available in two different styles. The white for the main card base, and the wood panel for acorns and trim paper. The sentiment acorn (Acorny Thank You) was stamped on brown cardstock using Versamark ink and covered in gold embossing powder. For the tops of the other two acorns, I used brown cardstock, stamped using Versamark and also heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. The bottoms of the two acorns are from the wood panel paper. I inked up the solid acorn image with Versamark & then covered them with clear embossing powder and heat set. It gives the acorns a shiny appearance. I propped all of those up with some 3M foam tape and adhered everything to a Neenah Solar White 110lb card base.

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks card. I can’t wait to see all your ideas!

Have a great week!

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 101

Hello, everyone!  Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Stamp, Ink, Paper celebrated it was the 100th challenge last week, and some blog candy was given away.

Since you’re here, I want to share with you how you can win a chance at a free stamp set from Concord and 9th over on my YouTube Channel.  All you have to do is click HERE, subscribe to my channel and leave a comment on any of the videos stating you are from this weeks challenge.  I will draw a name at random next Monday.

This weeks challenge was graduation! My card was pretty simple.  I took some Doodlebug Design Paper and used a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die to cut it at four by 5.25.  I also used one to cut the black cardstock at 4.25 by 5.5.  I then used the Tim Holtz accessories to cut out three hats out of MFT silver glitter paper.  Then used a Tim Holtz die to cut the word Congrats out of black card stock.  I then adhered the pattern paper to the black cardstock and popped up everything else on the card with 3M foam tape.

I hope you enjoy this weeks card! I am looking forward to giving away my first stamp set over on my YouTube Channel!

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #100

Praise his light we got to choose our design this week for the challenge.  I always like these. I can get a bit more creative.  This technique always comes in handy when you have a card that just isn’t finished, but gives you time to think about it.

This weeks card is made of all Stampin Up products.  I rarely get to make a card with all Stampin Up products because I don’t have a lot of it.  I like to use different product companies on each card, but I challenged myself this week.

This week challenge creation:

The card base is Very Vanilla card stock.  The designer paper is from Moroccan Nights.  The sentiment is from the dragonfly stamp set.  The tassel is from the recently released Eastern Palace Suite. Behind sentiment, you will find ribbon from the Occasions catalog that I ran out of. I had to search Ebay for some of it because I did love it to pieces! The coffee cup is from Starbucks 🙂

I hope you enjoy this weeks card and can’t wait to see your creations.  If you would like, I would love to have you subscribe over at my YouTube channel.  You can do that by clicking HERE.

Have a great week!
