Scattered Love

Love is in the air!!!  Although the stamp set is retired, I just had to use it.  The colors are rose red, sahara sand, and very vanilla.  I did use the current Happy Heart Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder from the Occasions catalog.  The delicate doily was brayered with sahara sand for a softer look.

This is one of the cards we made in our recent "Love" stamp-a-stacks.  Are you in the Milwaukee/Metro area and would like to make 8 cards (4 designs)....simply email me.  We meet the 2nd Monday and 2nd Thursday of each month at my home.

These past two weeks have been wonderful.  I've been able to play ... something I've not been able to do for a long time.  Today's card is another from Moon Lake.  Coloring (painting) is so relaxing.  The colors for this card are Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  I used the Woodgrain embossing folder as well as the Deco Labels Collection framelit.

Elegant Wedding Card

I am so lovin' the new stuff in the upcoming Occasions catalog!  This card so much prettier in real life ... the colors are Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, Vellum and Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper.  I simply colored the some of the flowers and leaves with a blushing bride and pistachio pudding markers. The hearts on the top are punched with Confetti Heart Border Punch, and the larger hearts are punched with the Sweetheart punch.  The "ribbon" and hearts are out of vellum and colored with the blushing bride stamp pad.  The "Congrats" sentiment is from one of the upcoming Sale-A-Bration stamp called Simply Wonderful.

We will be making this as one of our cards in the upcoming Stamp-A-Stack on Monday, January 12th and/or Thursday, January 15th.  Are you in the Milwaukee/Metro area and you would like to join us for either of the classes, just let me know.   During the class we make 8 cards, 4 designs (of each card).  All supplies are provided.  Cost is $15.  Space is limited.

Love is Kindness

Today I get to show you a sneak peak from the upcoming Occasions catalog.  I love this single stamp (which I cut apart the sentiment from the stamp) ... it's called Love is Kindness.  The colors are old olive, melon mambo and very vanilla.  I also incorporated the Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum on the side.  The other stamp set used is the "Dictionary" background stamp.  Can't wait until I can show you the entire catalog ... PLUS Sale-a-bration happens in January too!!!!
