Light Me Home


Light Me Home

Welcome back, Stamping friends! I feel like winter arrived in the Northern Shenandoah Valley today Brrrrrrr. It could be worse. My brother in Pennsylvania had two inches, and my cousin in Alabama also had some snow. I’m glad we missed that!

Since we didn’t have actual snow, I have some virtual snow for you. One of my favorite sets from the Stampin’ Up!® August-December Mini Catalog was Light Me Home. This set is one that looks awesome if you watercolor it with Classic Ink or color with Stampin’ Blends. It’s a lot of work, and some people don’t like to color (I do!), so I bought this set just for me. I pulled it out over the weekend and did this.

Stampin' Up!, Light Me Home

I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then I colored with Stampin’ Blends. I used Balmy Blue, Smoky Slate, Gray Granite, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, and Shaded Spruce.

Next, I added the Whisper White panel to Balmy Blue, and finally to a Misty Moonlight card base. I wanted a little more “ice,” so I added a bow using the Metallic Mesh Ribbon from the August-December Mini Catalog. It is so gorgeous and really looks like ice.

You still have another month to order from the August-December Mini Catalog. Don’t miss out on products that may retire in January! There are so many amazing products in the mini catalog.

Today, I was able to “preorder” products from the upcoming January-June Mini Catalog. Oh, my! It was so fun to order “spring” products. Maybe that’s why I feel so cold. I’ve been ordering spring and summer products but the thermometer said, “Winter!”

Stamping Bingo

Here’s another update for you. I’ll be offering a Stamping Bingo Event January 23 from 1-3 pm! This will be so much fun. Everyone will get a “Welcome Packet” with new Stampin’ Up!® products. We’ll play several games of Bingo, and winners will get prizes (more new products!). And we’ll do some simple stamping with new products. (Never stamped before? No worries! We’ll walk you through each step and you’ll create something amazing and beautiful!) Plus we’ll have door prizes – and you’ll get extra tickets for bringing a friend, ordering, and more. You don’t want to miss this! Be sure to RSVP by January 6 so you will secure your spot. We’ll meet via Zoom and in person, whichever is more comfortable for you. The cost will be $25 for in person and $33 for ZOOM (to cover the cost of mailing supplies for the event). You can RSVP here. Click on the event, then add your RSVP. Easy!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

      Thanks, Jackie! I love coloring; it’s very relaxing for me. (I know a lot of people don’t feel that way, though, so I try to keep cards for others to make a little more simple!)

    You are a wonderful colorer (is that even a word?). I wish I lived closer so I could come play Bingo with you. Sounds like fun!
