My name is Mary Beth Fisher. I am a retired RN married to a wonderful, supportive husband. I am a mom and “grammie” who has enjoyed crafting since I was 6 years old. I have been an active paper crafter for the past 10 years and am passionate about my hobby or as some would say my “addiction”.

I am hoping to inspire the creativity in as many people as possible. In my world the word “can’t” does not exist. Everyone is creative but some are undiscovered.

I also enjoy gardening, reading and painting.

Try Glycerin with Brusho

Good Morning Stampers, At my class on Saturday one of my downlines who is amazingly creative brought a bunch of cards she had created using the glycerin technique.  The smooth blend of inks for your background is awesome.  I wanted to check out how glycerin worked with Brusho.  I had a small scrap of Whisper White CS laying on my work bench.  I spread a very thin layer of glycerin on the paper and then sprinkled two colors of Brusho on it.  I took a sponge and blended the powders into a nice smooth background.  I did not add any water to the Brusho. I stamped the image from the Southern Serenade stamp set with Coastal Cabana ink on the background.  The base card is Mint Macaron CS.  I attached a piece of cardstock from the Tranquil Textures DSP series.  I used a border from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut specialty paper series.  I added a few pearls to the floral image.  Super quick and super fun to try a new technique.  If your looking for glycerin it will be in the make up section of your pharmacy.  One bottle will last forever because you only use a drop or two at a time and it dries quickly so you don’t have to wait to finish your project.  Take a look and give it a try.

Fable Friends

Hi Stamping Friends. I know it has been several weeks since I posted anything.  The crud I had turned into pneumonia so I have been out of commission.  This time I am finding it harder to bounce back than two years ago when I was unlucky enough to have pneumonia then too. Today I am sharing a card from my class on Saturday.  It is very simple but oh so cute.  I started with a base card of Highland Heather followed by the matching DSP from the Gingham Gala series. I used the scalloped circles from the Layering Circle framelits in Highland Heather and Whisper White CS.  On the Whisper White circle I stamped the squirrel image from the Fable Friends stamp set with Memento Black ink.  I used Stampin’Blends to color the image. A simple ribbon with a wooden flower (from Sale-a-bration) topped with a Gingham Gala flower sequin finished the card.   I once again thank you for taking time to stop by.  I will try my best to post more frequently.  I appreciate your patience.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Good Morning Stampers,

Happy St. Patrick’s Day.  I’m not a big meat lover so no Corned Beef for me.  In fact the crud has gotten to me and I don’t really have an appetite.  I wanted to make something “green” for today but I didn’t want it to be the traditional shamrock theme. This is what I came up with.

The base card is Mint Macaron, hey it’s still green!  I had a frame left over from another card so after I used the abstract dot image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set to create a background I placed the frame in the center.  On scrap Whisper White CS I stamped the flowers from the All That You Are stamp set and colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I used a framelit from the Frosted Bouquet set to cut out a few leaves.  I also used Stampin” Blends to add a little interest to the leaves.  I fussy cut the flowers and added them with liquid glue.  I’m happy with how it turned out.  Take a look and let me know what you think.

I’m A Little Teapot

Happy Monday Stampers, I think Spring might be trying to break through the snow.  The sun has been shining and the snow is melting.  The Cardinals are singing their Spring song.  I know we probably will get dumped on at least one more time with the white stuff but it does seem like there’s an end in sight.  Today I have a sweet little card.  Super quick and super cute.  It would be great for a little gift card or to stick in with a hostess gift.  I made the little envelope with the Envelope Punch Board.  The card itself is cut from Whisper White CS using the Tea Time framelits.  I cut two.  I ran one through the Big Shot with the Country Floral embossing folder.  I used daubers to highlight some of the embossed images.  How cute is that?   I CASE’d this idea from Carol Payne a fellow Stampin’Up! demonstrator. Thank you for stopping by and remember I am here to help with questions or if you are tempted to place an order or join my team.

Dandelion Wishes Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I promised to show you a card yesterday that was the birth child of the scrappy card I posted on Tuesday.  Well I forgot I had a class yesterday  to create a mosaic bird bath.  Needless to say it took longer than I had anticipated.  So the card I promised yesterday is here today.  This is a card I created for my step daughter’s birthday.  It begins with a base card of Blushing Bride CS followed by a piece of Mint Macaron CS.  On a piece of Soft Sea Foam CS I stamped the image from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set with Memento Black ink.  This cardstock is so faintly green that it can easily work as well as Whisper White or Very Vanilla CS as a base for stamping your image.  I cut two frames with the Layering Squares framelits.  I attached a ribbon  and a bow with White Twine to finish the card.  The greeting is from the same stamp set, Dandelion Wishes.  I CASE’D this idea from another demonstrator whom I cannot remember.  I know hers was done in black and white.  Thank you to my fellow demonstrator.  I am sharing a picture of my birdbath along with today’s card.  I had fun doing both.  See what you think.

Turning Leftovers Into A Sweet Card

Hello Stamping Friends,

I just finished a class on Saturday and I needed a birthday card yesterday so my work place was covered with bits and pieces.  It is impossible to create with a neat and orderly area.  It always starts out bare bones but never ends up that way.  With the pieces remaining from the last few projects I created this sweet little card.  I started with a base card of Blushing Bride CS.  I had cut a square from a piece of Mint Macaron CS for the birthday card from yesterday.  I ran this piece through the Big Shot with the Country Floral embossing folder.  On a piece of Whisper White CS I stamped the floral image from the Very Vintage hostess stamp set with Memento Black ink.  I used Petal Pink, Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo inks and my blender pen to color in the flowers.  The leaves are Mint Macaron ink.  The greeting is from the Well Said stamp set.  I added this with dimensionals.  Tomorrow I will show you the birthday card that started all this.  Thank you as always for stopping by.  Take a peek at the card.

Cut Up Stamping

Good Morning Stamping Friends.

Many years ago there was a scrapbooking store that held a Scrapfest annually. My daughter and I had a blast over a two day experience of new techniques, make and takes and card classes.  There were two people who had the greatest classes.  One of those is Jennifer McGuire.  She continues to inspire me even today.  I am sharing a card today that is one of her techniques.

I started with a base card of Bermuda Bay CS. Next  I used the yellow gingham paper from the Gingham Gala DSP series.  This has been a hot item and I just got my back order so now I feel like I can use my original pack.  On a piece of Whisper White CS I stamped the image from the All That You Are stamp set.  I stamped one full image and then a partial one to fill in the space.  I used Stampin’ Blends to color the image.  I estimated where I wanted the birthday greeting then cut a thin piece out of the whisper white image piece. I attached the top portion of the image then stamped the greeting and finally added the bottom portion of the image piece.  I know it is quick and easy and really a fun technique but it adds just something different for a change.  I hope you enjoy peeking.
