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.

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.

Hoppy Frogs

Hi Stampers,

Will this Winter never end?  It’s either freezing or snowing.  I am so ready for Spring.  I grew up on a farm when a farm was a farm not a corporate business.  I spent days in the woods and by the creek.  I used a cow watering tank as a boat in the creek and made friends with countless wild life.  I also watched tadpoles turn into frogs.  I loved watching them change day by day.  Needless to say the So Hoppy Together stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration promotion is a favorite of mine.  Today’s card is a reverse stamping technique which I have done before but never as easy as with the Stamparatus.  Thanks to Angie Pyjas for the idea of using the Stamparatus.  I started with a base card of Garden Green CS topped by a piece of Granny Apple Green CS.  The patterned paper is from the Love What You Do DSP series. I colored in the two little frogs with Stampin’ Blends.  I have to chuckle to myself when I see the tummy of the frog colored green in some of the images.  A frog’s belly is almost white.  I added just a touch of Pineapple Punch light to their bellies.  I sponged Pool Party ink above for the sky and Crumb Cake below for a base for the frogs to sit on.  I added a strip of Granny Apple Green CS as the only addition to the card front.

Thank you for taking the time to check it out.  Remember I am always available to answer questions or fill your wish list with and order.

What Do You Love?

Hello Stampers,

I am working on prepping for my next class.  That means my work station is a mess.  I have a bunch of scraps on the table.  Surprisingly there were two from the Share What You Love DSP series.  I had a piece of Balmy Blue CS that just happened to be the right size for an A2 card.  I adhered the two scrap pieces to the front of the card then on a piece of Whisper White CS I stamped the leaves and flowers from the Love What You Do stamp set.  I stamped the image of the flower with Granny Green ink then used the Flirty Flamingo colored pencil to color in the image and smoothed it with a Blender Pen..  I sponged the edges with Old Olive ink.  I added this to the designer series paper.  Not bad for a quick card.

I am really excited about the upcoming class.  I am using three stamp sets available from the Sale-a-bration promotion and the Sweet Treat Cups.  Two of the cards will be masculine themed and the other two cards are whimsical.  I know we are going to have a great time.

Thank you for taking time to check out my space.  I do really appreciate you.

Sweet Wishes

Hi Everyone,

I had a wonderful weekend with my stamping partners aka downlines. I have a thing about calling someone “down”.  These gals are anything but.  We let our spouses joins us for dinner Saturday night and we had a blast.  Yesterday we had my son and his wife and her parents and aunt for lunch.  My husband makes a mean lasagna.  Everyone had a nice visit.  Busy morning for me today.  I had to be at the clinic at 7:15 for an echo cardiogram.  I have mitral valve issues and it was time for a check on it.  I don’t think I’ve gotten up at 6:15 am since I retired 6 years ago.  This afternoon I have a dentist appointment to finish my crown.  Soon I will be a queen. Now I finally have time to share a card with you.

I started with a base card of Melon Mambo CS. followed by a retired piece of Blushing Bride polka dot CS. On a piece of Whisper White CS I stamped the image rom the Hello Cupcake stamp set available with the Sale-a-bration promotion, starting with the base with Granny Apple Green ink.  The cake part is So Saffron ink and the frosting is Melon Mambo.  Just a fun little card that really could be used for several occasions.  See what you think and as always thanks for taking the time to check it out.

Hoppy Valentine

Hi Stampers,

I got busy and wound up my Valentine cards and got them in the mail.  The card I’m sharing today is for one of my grandsons.  I know he is more into Super Heroes but he’ll be ok with the frogs I sent him.  I started the card with Real Red CS topped by a piece of the 6 x 6 Regals DSP.  On a piece of Whisper White CS I used the hearts from the Tabs For Everything stamp set and Real Red ink to create a border along the side..  I used Granny Apple Green ink to stamp two of the frogs from the So Hoppy Together stamp set which is one of the free stamp sets in the Sale-a-bration flyer.  I created the greeting on my PC and used the Classic Label punch to punch it from the Whisper White CS.  I really like the fact that the Whisper White CS goes through my printer without a hitch.  On the inside I created a scratch off section and attached a quarter to use to do the scratching.  I know the kids are going to get a kick out of the scratch off technique and it is so easy.    I want to thank you for taking time from your busy day to stop by for a peek.
