I’ve been stamping approximately 9 years and am always learning something new. Stamping is a wonderful world shared with many wonderful ladies.

I have been stamping for many years; my favorites still include Iris folding and sewing on my cards. I do love the new dies available and use them frequently. Although I continue to try new techniques, I always return to my favorites for many cards. I enjoy discovering new ways to use the same stamp, die, or technique.  This certainly keeps the creative juices flowing and makes stamping and making cards continue to be interesting and fun. Hope you enjoy these samples of my latest. Carol Simonds

Note from web designer: These lovely cards are embellished with jewels, layers of paper and other details that the scanner simply does not pick up correctly. In particular, the pretty round St. Patrick’s Day card is much more beautiful in person.

Jan McIntire – We R Memory Keepers

Hi!  I’m Jan McIntire and this month I am showing some things I have made using the We R Memory Keepers ® Envelope Punch Board.

This has turned out to be so much fun and so versatile.  Just think: you can make 66 different sized envelopes but don’t stop there.  I made all these items using the Envelope Punch Board and there are many more ideas on the internet.

In fact, I have had so much fun, that I want to share with you.  We will be having a workshop on Saturday, November 16, 10:30 – 3:30 just for playing with the envelope punch board.  Check out the class schedule list for more details.

I started stamping in the late 70’s proving a child could do it…just kidding. Oil painting was my love but in the 90’s when I started working and had limited time to paint, stamping was my creative outlet. I would make a card before going to work and more after work. It is a great stress reliever.

These cards look like my “Blue Period”… mainly because I like blue! I used a Penny Black face and punched butterflies, stenciled butterflies with distress inks. Stamping and Cuddlebug folders make quick cards. The Daisies and Vase are Print Works Collection and Poppies are MFT stamps. I appreciate Claire being in business all these years. It is great to have a stamp store in St. Augustine!
