Wild Plastic Background

This month's technique was fun.  When the card was designed the retired list had not yet come out.  Unfortunately the background stamp, It's Wild, is retiring.  I love the way the background looks like water (thanks Stamping School).  The background was stamped in soft sky, then dotted with plastic wrap (on the stamp itself).  Stamp the paper, then sponge over the top with soft sky.  The fish are stamped with From Land to Sea in soft suede.  It's hard to tell, but the fish have been colored with Clear Wink of Stella, which makes them look like real fish scales.  The other colors are Pool Party and Soft Suede for the background.  Have fun with the technique!

Going Global


This is one of the technique cards we made for April.  I will record a video of the actual technique in the near future ...everything shown on this card is being retired (other than the sahara sand and black paper), that was not planned! 

The world map was stamped with Archival Gray Ink.  The globe and stars were from the Going Global stamp set.  The color of the globe and sentiment are Lost Lagoon, and the other paper is from Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack.  ALL retiring!  When this card was created that wasn't the case!  Check out the retiring list tab for the most current items available.

Spring Robin


Sale-A-Bration ends March 31!!!  Have you gotten all the free stuff you were hoping for?  The cute card (again a CASE) showcases the Honeycomb Happiness SAB set.  Don't you just love the little chick, but it makes me think of spring coloring it as a baby robin.  It's simply stamped on watercolor paper using the black Archival ink, then "painted" with early espresso, chocolate chip, tangerine twist, cherry cobbler, and daffodil delight.

Bloomin' Heart Egg


This card is so pretty in real life.  It is a CASE from Pinterest, but I couldn't resist copying.  The blushing bride glimmer paper was cut out using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Die (turned sideways behind the oval).  The Easter blessing sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set.  The pretty embellishments are from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit.  So simple, but so pretty.

Stamp Room Refresh


I had an opportunity to do a little rearranging of my stamp room with the purchase of a couple of DVD cabinets along with a new storage compartment from Stamp-N-Storage for my ink pads, refills and markers.  I'm actually able to store all my stamp sets on a couple of shelves and I've freed up my entire counter space by doing so.  My room has actually stayed "clean" for over two weeks now!  I think that's a record!!!  Just having that extra counter space has kept me in the "creative mode".

Framed Roses





Last weekend we had a fun time making these framed roses.  They are either 12" x 12" or 8" x 8".  I was able to use my Silhouette to cut the decals on the front of the glass.  Super easy to make!  Just lots of roses....Spiral Flower Originals™ #129379 was used.

 If you would like to make this frame, feel free to email me, just gather a couple of friends, and we'll set a date!
