Tag Archives: #OviedoMallStampers


I have two special anniversaries coming up, my wedding anniversary to the Best Husband Ever and the 2nd anniversary of my Oviedo Mall Stampers Class. 

While I was designing cards for my class my husband sent up a glass of wine with my son. 

Meanwhile he was downstairs preparing a delicious dinner. Best Husband Ever!

On April 1st my friend Deb and I will celebrate our 2nd Oviedo Mall Stampers Anniversary. We’re excited to welcome everyone and will enjoy giving away gifts to our stampers.

Anniversaries are great!

Inspired March Cards

I host 3 regular monthly classes and sometimes I just need help to come up with new ideas. There are times when I think the ideas are great as is and why change a good thing? For my monthly Oviedo Mall cards I copied two cards from a couple of talented stampers.


This card was inspired by Lynn Starl, you can see her original post HERE.

The above card was inspired by Tana Boser, one of our 2017 Artisan Designers. You can see her original card HERE.

My stampers loved these cards and I’m glad I found them!

Cards, Friends and Fun!

I recently had my monthly Oviedo Mall Stampers class and it was so much fun to see everyone enjoying themselves and being in the company of old and new friends.


This group have been friends for years and they like to get together every so often to stamp. It was nice to see Katie, Gail, Lisa, Zahira and Karletta.

Now what did these friends stamp? Take a look at the cards below, my friend and fellow Stampin’Up demonstrator Debra LaFountaine designed the following 2 cards.

One of my cards was inspired by Linda Heller from Stamping School who designed this layout with different Designer Series Paper and color combination. I loved the simplicity and elegance of the card so much that I had my Oviedo Mall Stampers make it!


One of my favorite Designer Series Paper Packs is the Serene Scenery and I couldn’t resist using it for this card.

Here’s a look at my second card…

I kept it simple but be adventurous and use your imagination to color in the Mediterranean Moments images!

World Card Making Day 2016…Success!

Last Saturday was World Card Making Day and to celebrate we planned a special event for our monthly Oviedo Mall Stampers!

My friend Debra LaFountaine and I invited our Stampin’ Amigas to help us out and we banded together to create a great event for our stampers!


We were showing off our sleeves in tribute to Linda Heller, we are her “Roadies”

We also invited a couple of local vendors to give away samples, we had wine from the Winey Wench and Gelato from Amarena – Old fashioned Gelato.

Birds, Ice Cream, Elegance and Drinks!

This past Saturday our Oviedo Mall Stampers made cards with Birds, Ice Cream, Elegant Detailed Floral and Drinks. Take a look at the cards below and the Facebook Live video I shot while they worked. If you’re in the Central Florida area come join us the first Saturday of every month for card making and meeting new friends!

This was also a Fun Fold card, this is what it looks like when open.

Debra also designed this card using the Detailed Floral Thinlits. This was a labor of love, she ran 55 pieces of card stock through the thinlit and then removed all the cutouts!


Inside look


My cards for this event were cased and tweaked from the Annual Catalog. You can find this card on page 89. I changed the color and background layered piece using the returning Woodland Embossing Folder.


You can find this card on page 69 of the Annual Catalog. You will notice that I changed the card base and used and extra piece of Smokey Slate card stock embossed with the new Seaside Embossing Folder


One of our stampers changed the direction of the card to portrait, I like it!

Sorry for the shaky video, this was my very first Facebook Live Video. With time and practice I should get better…here’s hoping!

Occasions Preview, Oh What Fun!

20151130_201340-1_wmMy friend and fellow SU demonstrator Debra and I attended a Stampin’Up event on November 14th and we were able to preview some of the products from the upcoming Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. We each received 3 stamp sets and had the opportunity of preordering a few of the products before many demonstrators.
That being said, we are going to use some of the new products in our cards for our Oviedo Mall event this month ! They will have the opportunity to be one of the first to make cards with these new products that are not available for sale yet! Being an Oviedo Mall Stamper has its perks!
