To early for Christmas cards?  Nooooo!  I made this one with some stuff from the new holiday mini from SU available starting August 1!  I have to say the new mini has soooooo many awesome things in it.  I think I want it all, lol.  This card was made using the Evergreen Stamp set.  I stamped the solid image on glossy paper with Gumball green ink and the stamped the detail stamp on top of that using versamark and embossed it with the new early espresso embossing powder.  That lovely paper in the background is the new Core'dinations CS in Early Espresso, it has a lighter color core.  I embossed it with the Woodgrain EF and then lightly sanded the raised edges to show the lighter color.  Love the way this looks.  The ribbon is in Gumball green and I added a Brushed Bronze designer button, love this button it is big enough to tie regular sized ribbon through it.  The image is die cut using a framelit from the window frame collection and sponged to look like the sun was setting.

Here is a picture of the sunset tonight from by back door.  Thanks for stopping by.

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!

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.
