Lindsays Stamp Stuff & My First Tutorial


I love the cup of hot cocoa from the Lindsay's Stamp stuff Warm Winter digital stamp set . You can purchase from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Shop at ShopHomemade where the everyday special is spend $5 in digital stamps and get a free stamp. I just had to use my chocolate scented embossing powder on the cocoa. Along with the liquid applique, it almost looks real!

While you are out surfing the web, check out Lindsay's blog. She has great ideas, tutorials and freebies. (Don't you just love freebies??!!) She also has links to the rest of her DT blogs so you can check out their projects.

I also used the Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO114) from last week. I did not get the card done in time to post for the sketch challenge but I still wanted to share it with you.

Following is a quick tutorial on how to match the color of your computer generated sentiment to your Stampin' Up or Close To My Heart Paper. It only takes a few steps in Word and it is well worth the effort. If the pictures below are too small to see, you should be able to click them to enlarge.

Follow these steps:


1) Open a new document Microsoft Word


2) Type in your text using the font / size that you desire.


3) Click the Font Color button.



4) Click the "More Colors" option


5) When the box opens, make sure you are on "Custom" and you can type in RGB (Red, Green, Blue) code for the color your desire. You can find most of the Stampin' Up RGB and many of the Close To My Heart RGB codes HERE on Splitcoast Stampers or you can also find a link in my side bar. In the example below, I typed in the values for Stampin' Up Old Olive. (Note, I changed to Real Red on my final card.)


6) Click "OK" and you are done. When printing, make sure you use a color printer. (I have accidentally printed in just black & white before).

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at shestampsblog@yahoo.com. Please leave a link in comments to anything you make using this tutorial. I would love to see it.

Thank you for looking!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
