You're going to love this!  It's the best card for your sewing friends & just impressive anyway.  It's made with Ann's favorite color, Stampin' Up!'s Real Red.

In the video, you'll see 3 different cards made with the same technique.  Yesterday's post shows the main card Ann will be making, but I like all 3 of them.

The Big Shot Movers & Shapers Die #114506, the Magnetic Movers & Shapers #115953 & the Modern Label Punch #116630 are featured on all 3 too.  Gotta have them!

And you CAN get them here!

These Faux Pinwheel cards are so fast & fun.  They REALLY impress you humans out there, but ever I can do them!  You'll love the new technique video I've planned.  Yesterday morning, Ann & I taped a second version because I didn't like the shadows on the patio in the afternoon.  I just want to be sure you get the best look!  Check back tomorrow so you can learn this cool card in just a few minutes. 

You know I like to be fast & quick just like a Jack Russell!

If you're not on my newsletter list or a Facebook fan, you're going to miss out on some pretty hot stuff next week!  Get on board now & hang on for the wild ride!

July 28 2009 My Uncle Gerry is retiring this week.  He's a County Sheriff who is loved by all.  Well, maybe the bad guys don't realize that they SHOULD love him. 

Here's the card that I encouraged Ann to make in the week hours of this morning.  We used Stampin' Up!'s Party Hearty & Under the Stars stamp sets.  It's got a Happy Retirement stamp from Teeny Weeny Wishes inside next to a punched out star that

Hope he loves it as much as his brother does.

July 27 2009 It's here!  Stampin' Up!'s last deal of the week!  It's something to help put your heart on your creations!  I can always borrow one of these hearts when mine's busy.




Here it is in all it's splendor.  We're putting in an order tomorrow.  Let us know if you want one or order direct.

Things were buzzing here yesterday!  Ann was chasing me around with that big machine on a stick.  Human, oh human!  That thing makes too much noise!  It shocked me into remembering to remind you that it's your last chance to get the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware kit for only $18.99! 

I'm working on Ann to teach this cool technique soon.  But you don't have to wait for her.  My demonstrator friend Betty made it for a Stampin' Up! contest.  Then Stampin' Up! shared it with the instructions with all the other demonstrators so that they could teach classes.  Betty did a fine job so that YOU would have an easier time starting out as a demonstrator.

Ann has a few things up her sleeve to help you too!  I guard the 24/7 Stampers part of this site so that they can have projects & forms to be better demonstrators. 

Yes, besides, video director & blog writer extraordinaire, I have som typical dog duties too.  I'll be guarding the stamps when Ann goes to the Stampin' Up! convention.  Here's a picture of the stage with my friend & confidante, Shelli Gardner (Stampin' Up! CEO to you) in silhouette.  She always knows how to make an entrance. 

And here's Ann & Jolene.  They really took Salt Lake City by storm!  Maybe you can go with Ann next year!

Got questions?  Check out my Help Wanted page.  And be sure to drop me an email.  I know everything about this business that Ann doesn't.

July 25 2009 I know something you don't know!  And it's going to take an army of bulldogs to pull it out of me!  We are work, work, working around here for something special just for you!

But in the meantime, I thought that I would share something pretty cool with you.  Just before Hafdis Miller, our last Barking Board winner, picked up her prize, I whipped out my trusty Canon S3IS & took a shot of her booty.  Not THAT booty!  ARRRRRRR!  Pirate's Booty!  Free stuff!  She's getting it just in time as she's having a baby for me to kiss in August.

Maybe YOU could win the next one!  You get your name on the Barking Board for every $50 that you spend with Ann.  When the board is full, you get a $100 Stampin' Up! Gift Certificate to shop with Ann!

Gotta love that!

July 24 2009 Isn't this card purdy?  My gal Val came over for some one on one stampin' time.  They were playing with my Big Shot & coming up with new color combos.

This is Ann's version of what they did with the Stampin' Up! Greenhouse Garden set.  It's just one of the many new sets we added to our Art Gallery.  You can see a real close up of the bling on the flower there and many other projects.

You should come over on Tuesday night for some free style stampin' too!  Everyone comes & works on different projects.  They have a light dinner too!  I think there are a couple seats left for SOS Night.  Val's coming.  You should too!  You can register here

July 23 2009 Ann has been doing some funny things now that I'm training her to be my Food Goddess. 

She's been doing well concentrating on my needs, that she's forgotten about her own!  She put her Frosted Mini Wheats in the bowl.  She cut up some strawberries for the top.  THEN she opened the big box door & did NOT bring out the big white jug that she usually does.  OOPS!

So, being the resourceful goddess that she is, she found a can that squirted out a fluffy version of what comes out of the big white jug.  She called it the Breakfast of Champion Stampers.

Have you ever had this breakfast?  She seemed pretty pleased with inventing it!

July 22 2009 Good news!  Bermuda Bay Ink Pads & Refills are coming!  They're going to start replacing the ones that didn't measure up.  Those who weren't able to order them before will be able to order them on July 29th.  WOO HOO!

Thanks for your patience.  Please know that Stamper Dog will sell no product before its time.  If it's not good enough for Stampin' Up!, it's not good enough to share.

Here's something new in the catalog that you might have missed.  It's the Treat Boxes #115690 on page 159 of the Stampin' Up! Catalog.  They're a heavy glossy Chocolate Chip printed cardstock.  You get 5 of them for just $3.95. 

I think that they'd look even better with some dog treats in them.  Don't you?

Ann & Stamper wish to express their condolences
to the owners & trainer of Gidget, the Taco Bell dog
who crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this week
to meet with Paso, Johnny Walker, Katy
& many other special dogs
we all know & love.

Man, oh man!  You know us guy dogs LOVE THE HARDWARE!  That Stampin' Up! Vanilla Hodgepodge is something way cool!  If I wasn't a white dog, I'd wear it!  (don't want to clash)

The best part of this Vanilla Hodgepodge Kit (besides it being on sale for $18.99 - almost 30% off!) is that you can color it!

Here's a close up of how it looks when you - insert technical term here - schmoosh - it into a Stampin' Up! Craft ink pad & then polish the excess off.  Click for the ultimate closer view.




We made this with Cecil in mind because he does so much for us.  Of course, the card looks even better in real life.  Love that Circle Circus!

You can click here to order direct from our online store OR if you're local, just email Ann to order yours for $22 including tax & shipping so you can pick it up next week.
