April Stamp Class Card #2


I have been waiting to use this set for class for a couple months now. I knew it was the right time when I found a Gardening Encyclopedia at a garage sale for 25 cents!! Wooohoooo!! I knew I wanted to use this paper as the background for this card.

Field of Flowers made it past the plethora of retirement cuts!! The little bees are from an old set that my friend Lindy Sparks bought at a different garage sale that same day. I made the flowers using the 2 step technique with Tempting Turquoise & Pacific Point. What an unlikely combo I know, but I loved these 2 colors together. I used the Turquoise as the card base & have sense changed the layer to Very Vanilla from the Lucky Limeade.

Thank you for stopping by!!!

Another Play Day.....


I was stamping with my friend Holly a few days ago & we decided to just stamp away. I made 3 cards that day. This is one of the cards that I made. I used the Sweet Treat DSP & Jelly Bean Brad. The little elephant is one of the single stamps that we have this year called Elebration. The card base is Wisteria Wonder from the In-Color collection this year. The balloons I stamped & cut out from the Party This Way stamp set.

Just Playin' Around.....


I love the House Mouse Stamps! I found this one at the local craft store & just had to have it! Isn't he just the cutest? I used the Stampin' Up! pastels to color the image. I made the background with the starburst embossing folder.

Cascade Card....

Today my girlfriend & I set out to make a cascade card that we had seem this weekend at a stamping event, but did not remember what it looked like. I also saw a post on Dawn Griffith'sblog that inspired me. She was directing us to Frenchie's blog for directions for this card. These 2 ladies are very talented. I frequent their blogs for ideas. So, here is my card!! I just cut my candles out of designer series paper & used the wing from the bird builder punch for the flame. I stamped & cut out the balloons from the Party this Way set.



Here is the card that my Girlfriend made!! Isn't the little elephant the cutest?


Thanks for stopping by & I hope you enjoyed!

Live in the Sunshine.....


This is the 1st of 4 projects for April stamp class. I absolutely love sunflowers. My grandma loved sunflowers & chickens. Every time I see a chicken or sunflower I think of her.

I took the woodgrain background & stamped it in chocolate chip on the whisper white card stock. I then stamped the sunflower background stamp in versa mark & embossed it with white embossing powder. After embossing it, I sponged the flower petals with more mustard & the center of the flower with chocolate chip. The base of the card stock is night of navy with a more mustard layer. I used the denim ribbon around the card. Live in the Sunshine comes from the Pursuit of Happiness stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed!!!
