Welcome to my New Blog!

Hello stampers!  Welcome to my new Stampin' Up! blog, where I'll be posting my latest creations, 'how-to' directions for you to follow along, new Stampin' Up! specials, and many other things!
Since I'm new to blogging, I'd love to hear your suggestion on what you'd like to see - projects, blog hops, tutorials - whatever interests you! 
I'll also be posting upcoming class schedules for you to join in the fun.

Just to get things started, this is a project I did recently, and will be including them (or something like them) in an upcoming Spring workshop - 'cause we're all wanting to get outside into the garden!
These are 2 garden decor stakes (shown without the stakes). The one on the left is made from copper, the one on the right from aluminum.  Both were cut using the Big Shot Top Note die, then embossed with the Garden Flowers embossing folder.  I then die cut the butterflies with the Big Shot Beautiful Butterflies die, embossed those, and attached them with colourful brads!  Can't you just see these in your garden, winking in the sun?  Aaahhh...I feel warmer already!

Let me know what you think!  I'd love to hear from you.
Happy Stamping!
