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 Splitcoaststampers.com – 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. 🙂

Have a fabulous Friday!

Create or Computer? The age-old question…

I’m not gone, I’ve just been creating instead of blogging! 🙂 Here are a few things I’ve been up to:

New Ribbon Storage

I wanted a fun and functional way to store my SU! ribbons so I used a couple Bell glass canning jars! I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the canning lids, threaded my ribbon through the holes and spun on the screw-top lid. Now they sit on my bookshelf and I can see at a glance what I have.

I wanted to make a Valentine’s banner, so I took my daughter’s old shoebox…

And used my Big Shot to cut out the backgrounds for my banner (using the Top Note die). I then die cut my Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper and Kraft cardstock with the same die.

Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper

I attached the paper to the box dies with adhesive. I bought a glitter “Love” banner a few years ago at Target and found the letters in my stash (I never throw away a good craft project ;)) and attached those to the die cuts with Sticky Strip. I then used my Crop-A-Dile (can you tell I love this thing??) to punch holes in the dies.

Next I stamped hearts from the I {Heart} Hearts set on Crushed Curry cardstock and embossed with White Stampin’ Embossing Powder.

I {Heart} Hearts by Stampin' Up!

After cutting out the letters I adhered them to the letters with Sticky Strip. I then threaded Melon Mambo Polka-Dot ribbon through and VOILA! A custom Valentine’s banner! 🙂

Remember that Stampin’ UP! will donate $2 from the sale of every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set to the American Red Cross. You can purchase this and hundreds of fabulous products by clicking on the link to your right.

Have a great Wednesday! 🙂

Howdy!

I'm Tammy Moore, a scrapbooking fanatic in Austin, TX. Thanks for stopping by my little space on the web. Feel free to contact me any time!

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. :)
