WINE Down Night

Hello Friends!    

My first WINE Down night with two beautiful ladies. The WINE Down night is to wind down from a dreaded workweek and to get out of the house and to chill with me. No obligations, and they got to create 3 cards, and have a glass of wine on me.


When you are drinking, you see how much they are having. I couldn't get a clear picture of Cora-Lynn as she was laughing so hard that the pictures came out blurry.


The fussy cutting was already for them. All they need to do was ink and stamp and have fun!


They got a taste of watercoloring with aqua-painter and inks and learn how to blend the two.


I asked them which is their favourite card. They both like the Party Pandas!


All-in-all, cheers to great friends. Thanks for the fun time! 

Want to join? Next class is scheduled for February 23 at 7:00 p.m. Cost is $25. You will receive 3 cards to make and a glass of wine (red or white). Put in an order that night, and the class fee is $20.

Hello Friends!     

I am soooo loving the Bird Banter stamp set which is available in the Occasions Catalogue on page 42. This set is only available until April 30. 

I hate fussy cutting so I love extracting images to work with my electronic cutter and stamping the images with my mini MISTI. My Stamparatus is not available until February so until then, I am using my mini MISTI. What is great about these positioner is that you can stamp multiple times to mass produce and color them all at once.

Cut (1) Cake Soiree DP 4" x 5-1/4".

Do you live in Canada, come shop with me! When you purchase the Bird Banter stamp I will give you the SVG file that coordinates with this set + I will mail you 5 pre-cut images of the parrot and 5 mini flags. The cutting files are only for the parrot, toucan and the balloon for now. Still working on the Cherokees.

Stamps: Bird Banter
Papers: Whisper White Thick, Cake Soiree DP, Basic Black, Window Sheet, Watercolor Paper
Inks: Whisper White craft, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Lemon Lime Twist, Real Red, Archival Black Ink
