essense of love

I am busy working on setting my schedule for the next 3 months so I didn't have a lot of stamping time today. I have another more involved project that I have in process that uses this set that I will show to you an other time. this card is just a quick and easy one but I hope you like it. What I used: Essence of Love stamp set Chocolate Chip, Mellow Moss, and Whisper White card stock Mellow Moss classic ink pad Chocolate Chip poly-twill ribbon

more bloomin' beautiful

I did warn you yesterday that I you would be seeing a lot of this set, right?!?! Can't you just feel spring? I did a couple of different things on this card. The image was stamped on a larger piece of card stock, watercolored then cut down to its current size. I used my paper cutter but skipped where I wanted the image "out of the box", those details I cut out with my paper snips. I added the background by masking the main image then stamping the background with Old Olive ink that had been stamped off first. What I used: Bloomin' Beautiful stamp set Whisper White, Basic Black, Old Olive card stock Bali Breezes designer paper Basic Black, Old Olive classic ink pads Pumpkin Pie, Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive classic ink for watercoloring, aquapainter Vintage Brads

Bloomin' Beautiful

You know that I have a major weakness for any stamp set that I can watercolor the image, so of course I had to have this new set out of the Occasions mini catalog. This set is called Bloomin' Beautiful and I have a feeling you will be seeing a lot of it over the next couple of months. What I used: Bloomin' Beautiful stamp set Whisper White, Basic Gray and Soft Sky card stock Soft Sky Prints designer paper Soft Sky, Basic Gray, Basic Black classic ink pads Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Always Artichoke, Going Gray, Basic Gray ink for watercoloring Aquapainter Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, silver brads

I'm back, did ya miss me?

Did you think I was dead? Sorry but it took me a whole week after I got back from vacation to get my act together. I evidently left my brain on the beach, in the sun, reading a book under a palm tree. But now I am back in the swing of being a responsible adult and out from under a mountain of laundry. This card uses the hostess set Infinite Goodness. The berries are watercolored but no tricky stuff. What I used: Infinite Goodness stamp set Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Whisper White cardstock Black Stazon ink pad, Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue classic ink pad Mellow Moss and Bashful classic ink for watercoloring Chocolate Chip polytwill ribbon


I will be out of town and away from my computer until the 12th. And before you think that this is a good opportunity to break into my house and steal all my stamps think again. The hubby and kiddos are staying home and guarding my toys while I go on a husbandless, kidless, fun in the sun with my girlfriend, trip to paradise. I will bring you all back some sand and sunshine. See ya on the 12th...

from the garden...

I have to admit that at first I was a little intimidated by the size of this stamp and not sure what to do with an image stamp the size of a background stamp. I am now beginning to see the possibilities. What I used: From the Garden and Elegant Cheer stamp sets Confetti White card stock Always Artichoke and Brilliant Blue classic ink pads Brocade Blue wide grosgrain ribbon aquapainter, dazzling diamonds glitter and crystal effects
