Hope You Can Cling To

TGIF!! *Today is the LAST DAY of my FREE shipping promotion!! Place your order by midnight CST tonight (either on my website or through me) to receive free shipping!*

I’m participating in a very worthy challenge over at – the Hope You Can Cling To challenge! We’re gathering cards to send to breast cancer patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

I will always have a very special place in my heart for MD Anderson. Several years ago my mom underwent surgery there to remove several cancerous organs. She has MS, so this was a very risky proceedure. The doctors and staff took wonderful care of her and she has been CANCER FREE ever since. I thank God when I think of MD Anderson and I’m so thankful for this chance to help other patients there!

One challenge was to make a pink holiday card (any holiday except Valentine’s). I created this pink Christmas card with some retired SU! products and the watercoloring technique I showed you several days ago.

*Sorry for the awful lighting but I finished this up after dark so I had to work with the overhead lights. Ick!

Just wanted to share this to showcase the amazing challenge going on and that holidays don’t have to be in the traditional colors to be fun. ūüôā

Have a fabulous Friday!

Won’t you be… my Favor??

Sorry, I haven’t finished my first cup of coffee yet this morning. ūüėČ Now the song’s gonna be stuck in your head all day… hee hee!

Last Friday was our daughter’s 11th birthday so Sunday meant a birthday party. I decided to make “candy wands” for each girl to A.) eat and enjoy and B.) give them a sugar-high all their parents would appreciate. ūüėČ Honestly, I ran out of time to order from this fabulous Etsy seller (who I can’t seem to find the name of… if you know who I’m talking about please let me know!) so I made my own. *this post is gonna circle back to Stampin’ UP! – hang in there* Behold:

I’m so excited to share these with you because the FAB ribbon I used to tie the bags is SU! Real Red 3/4″ Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon – a retired product NOW AVAILABLE in the Clearance Rack on my website!

Real Red 3/4" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon - Clearance - by Stampin' Up!10 yards for $1.99!!

Seriously, that’s a rediculously low price! SU! has added even more items to our Clearance Rack at savings up to 80%!! Click on the link in my sidebar to check out the deals on my website NOW! This stuff is going FAST!

Have a great day, and really…

Won’t you be my favor? ūüėČ

Texas Two-Steppin’

**I have FREE shipping and FREE tote specials going on now! Scroll down for more details!**

I have a SUPER SIMPLE little watercoloring project to show you today and it includes only TWO steps. Seriously, you can’t¬†color any easier than this!

Materials: Stamp (Because I Care, earn this FREE as a hostess), Watercolor paper, Stampin’ UP! Classic Ink Pads (Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and¬†Pumpkin Pie), Aqua Painter, scissors, Dimensionals, needle and thread, Early Espresso cardstock and ribbon.

*Before starting this project, with your Stampin’ UP! ink pads closed, gently press the top down toward the ink pad inside. This will transfer some ink to the lid – this is what you’ll use for the next steps.

1. Stamp your desired image in solvent ink (such as StazOn). Do not use Stampin’ UP! ink or any other water-based ink for this step as it will run once we start watercoloring.

2. Painting Step 1: Fill your Aqua Painter with water according to the package directions. Place the tip of your Aqua Painter in the lid of your ink pad so it soaks up some ink.  

3. Painting Step 2: Press the Aqua Painter bristles to the watercolor paper to transfer the ink. The color will be strongest right after you pick it up, and will fade as more water and less ink is put down. There’s NO wrong way to do this, so play around with it! ūüôā

*When you’re ready to change colors simply wipe your Aqua Painter bristles onto the watercolor paper until it runs clear.

4. Continue putting down ink colors until you’re satisfied with the image.

Tada, totally colored and it took about 15 minutes (which included finding my Pumpkin Pie ink pad in a box in the garage!) TWO steps – YOU can do this! ūüôā

I cut out the flower, added it to a hand-cut tag of Early Espresso cardstock, stamped the included sentiment from the stamp set, hand-cut and added a few stitches. Retired So Saffron ribbon finished it off:

Want to see this technique in action?? Host a workshop with me and we will create a similar item with your guests and you can earn this stamp set FREE! Contact me today! ūüôā

Why “Mama Bear Stamps”?

A few years ago my daughter and husband gave me the nickname "Mama Bear" and I've used it ever since! This year I even conqured my fear of needles and had the Chinese symbols of mother and bear tattooed above my right ankle. When I started this blog, I knew I wanted to go by my nickname: Mama Bear. But you can call me Tammy if you'd like. :)
