Shoe Box Swap

Hello Happy Stampers,

Last weekend we had a shoe box swap at my uplines house.  It was so much fun.  If you don't know what a shoe box swap is, you are missing out.  It where everyone designs a card and prepares all the stuff for everyone to make your card, and then we pass the boxes around and make all the cards.  So much fun, oh and we have plenty of food to snack on.  Yummy! 
Well this is the card I designed for the ladies to make. I am really liking the mostly one layer collage look.  Colors used on this card are Mossy Meadow, Daffodil Delight, and Very Vanilla.  The ribbon is the new mossy meadow Stitched Stain ribbon, love this ribbon.  I stamped the dictionary background (page 175) stamp on Very Vanilla with Sahara Sand Ink.  I then stamped some of the images from World of Dreams (page 127) on top of that also with Sahara Sand Ink.  I colored the flower stamp with blackberry bliss and mossy meadow using my blender pen.
Well that's it for today.  I hope you like it.  Please feel free to leave a comment.

Easter

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
