Work of Art-Rainbow

I just love it when you can take a stamp set and make so many different things with it.  After many days of rain and storms there was a beautiful bright rainbow, which is where I got the inspiration for this card.  I used the Work of Art stamp set and my stamp-a-ma-jig to make the rainbow.  Colors used are strawberry slush, so saffron, and pistachio pudding.  I stamped off with all of the colors .  I then sponged around the edges with soft sky.  The tree stamp is from the serene silhouette stamp set and is stamped in soft suede ink.  I used the new fringe scissors to make the grass and I used some of the new cotton ribbon, very nice ribbon to work with.

That's it for today.  I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by:)

World of Dreams

Hello Stampers,
I hope everyone is having wonderful weather.  We have had a week full of T-storms, tornadoes (none that touched down), and Hail storms.  I am ready for a day with no storms. 

These 2 cards were made when I was working on yesterdays card for the shoebox swap.  They are both stamped with Sahara Sand Ink with the dictionary stamp and world of dreams stamps.  On the first one I added a doily which I stamped on and inked around the edges and the crumpled up to give it an antique look.  On the second one I stamped the flower image in versa mark and embossed it with silver embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!

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.

Love & Sympathy

For the summer my upline is having a sketch for us to do every other Monday.  This was the first sketch for the summer.  I used the stamp set called "Love & Sympathy" found on page 122.  I love this stamp set it is so simple yet looks so nice.  Colors used are Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon, and Whisper White.  I colored some of the pearls with one of the old olive blendabilities. 
This is the sketch we had to follow.  I hope you like and maybe you can give the sketch a try.  Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.

For Your Country

In honor of the 4th of July I thought I would make a military card.  This card uses the stamp set called "For Your Country" and can be found in the new SU catalog on page 153.  I colored the boots using some of the skin tone blendabilities.  This was very fun to color and worked up pretty fast.  For the background on the card I used the "gorgeous grunge" stamp set found on page 165.  Colors used are Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Mossy Meadow, and Whisper White.

Well I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by.

Clean and Simple

OMG, it's finally Summer break!  I have been waiting for this day for over 9 months, lol.  I am planning on focusing on my stamping business and blogging regularly this summer. 

This is where I got my inspiration for my card.  I saw this photo on pinterest and my first thought was that would make a great card. 

Colors used for this card are Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Strawberry Slush, and So Saffron.  And of course I am completely out of all 3 of those colors in paper.  I found 1 piece of so saffron with a circle cut out of the center but I made it work. I think I will be placing an order for paper very soon.  I used the Work of Art stamp set (page 165) to make the rainbow and the sentiment.  The flower is from a hostess set called Bloom with Hope.  This is a very simple easy to make card, sometimes those are the best.

Thanks for stopping by:)
