stamping 411

I finally got a chance to do a card for the stamping 411 challenge. I got many new toys to play with yesterday. I used the flower stamp from the Easter blossoms stamp set. I used my stampin' write markers to color this. The flower is from the new build a blossom stamp set and punch. I used the stamping 411 sketch for this card, I added a few little extra things to it. The sentiment and the little flowers stamped on the top are from a sale-A-bration stamp set called So Happy for You. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and maybe some nice weather. We had beautiful weather here today, it was in the 50's but I hear that is going to change tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by, if you get a chance hop on over and give the stamping 411 sketch a try.

I love the color combo you've chosen. This is a very pretty card! And I'm SO jealous of your 50-degree weather. When I look out my window I see about 2 feet of snow!
Gorgeous!!! Love the flower in the corner. Great Job!!

I'm with Jen (because she lives near me), if it hit 50 degrees here I'd probably be wearing shorts lol!! Your card is beautiful! Thanks for sharing how you made the beautiful flower, I just used that set for the first time yesterday and didn't recognize where yours came from :)

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
