Garden in Bloom

Hello!
Here I am again, with my Garden in Bloom stamp set. I make lots of cards, and this one...I just L.O.V.E. It is Pinterest Inspired..I did change up a couple of things. I liked it so much, I have made it for a swap I am in, plus...I made a few others, just changed up the sentiment. Watermelon Wonder is the featured colour.
Enjoy!

Garden in Bloom for a friend

Good morning!
On my little FB page, I had a challenge for members to make a card using Garden in Bloom. Funny thing about this stamp set, I didn't order it for myself. A customer ordered it...and then we realized she had previously purchased it. So...I claimed it. Surprisingly...I love the set. So fun to work with. Pinterest Inspired, as always.

Where has the time gone?

Good Morning People!
      I have been slacking lately! Not posting cards! I just had to have this limited time set from Stampiin' Up! Thoughtful Branches and the matching Thoughtful Branches Thinlets. I just love them! I first saw this card on a blog, (or a similar one) and just had to make for the upcoming fall season.
I am going to get busy and get some more cards posted...as I have quite a few to show you.
Have a great day!

Happy Birthday with Balloon Celebration

Good Morning!
I have a ton of DSP. I need to use it up!! This card features Balloon Celebrations, and I used the outline stamp, and then punched out the balloon, using a bit of my DSP! I made several of these cards, as I like to swap, especially for birthdays!
Come back again another day and see what I have been up to!

I chose this card for today! Again, I am using the Balloon Celebration stamp set. The embossed piece is the star EF from Stampin' Up.A little glitter cardstock to spiff the card up. Easy peasy lemon squeasy. I used the star punch, and the balloon punch as well.
Pinterest Inspired.
Enjoy...happy card making!

Balloon Celebrations

Hey All!
Today my card was inspired by Pinterest!! Shocker!! lol
I love the way this card turned out. Balloon Celebrations stamp set was used. I am enjoying using the 2 step balloon stamp, Its very easy to use. Just stamp off, to get the lighter colour underneath! There are lots of embellishments as well, a little more than I generally use. The new shiny enamel dots are great to work with! A few rhinestones made their way to the card as well. If you notice, there is a small embossed piece on the card as well. The designer of the card, called it an "art piece".  This is one of my favourite cards!
Enjoy! I hope you make a card today!

Brown Monochromatic Revisted

So I participate in swaps. I love cardmaking, and this gets me doing it. A few years ago when I started out with Stampin' Up I made the top Brown Monochromatic card. It has been sitting around for awhile...I keep looking at it, thinking its a masculine card. Yesterday as I was searching my stash, I came across the top card. I thought...oh...I can use this one. Looking at it, I thought it was pretty plain, so I decided to pull out my Botanical Builder dies and spiff it up a bit. I pulled out my stash of brown scraps and cut away! I am really happy with the way it turned out, no longer a masculine card...and soon will be off on its way to its recipient!
Have a great day!

Awesomely Artistic

I made a page on FB. I had been thinking about it for a long time. I am hoping people will post their CAS creations, or originals, so we can be inspired to Stamp. My first post was Awesomely Artistic. I got busy and inked up this stamp set, and came up with this beauty, which I CAS'D. I think it is gorgeous! lol. My embossing folder is different than the one I CAS'D but I love how it turned out. I am in a swap group...and I think the gals will get this one in the mail too!
Happy card making! Maybe you can join us on FB too.

Heat Embossed Flowering Fields

Hey!
I go in spurts. I find a stamp set and then I use and use and use it! I participate frequently in swaps, and today I needed a card for a Heat embossed card. Using the Flowering Fields stamp set this is what I came up with. I am not the greatest at heat embossing, but I was satisfied with the outcome.
Have a wonderful day and I hope you create something beautiful!

Flowering Fields

Hello!
If any of you know me personally, I love green. Lime green. I received this embossed piece of cardstock in a swap, so I decided to use it, in this card. I choose the Flowering Fields stamp set and I coloured the stamps with Stampin' Up markers. I also used the Window Die's and then Paper Pierced them.  I participate in a lot of swaps online, and this one was for a Paper Piercing swap.
Enjoy!

Watercolour Hello

Hello!
Look at this adorable card! Again, participating in a swap, we were to use a Never Before Used Item from our Stash. Look what I found....this adorable stamp set from Sale-a-bration, just waitng to be inked up.  I tried inking up clear blocks for the background, and then coloured the stamps with Stampin' Up markers. I added the hello sentiment. I like the card. Hope the recipient does too!

My most favourite die set

Hey Stampers
I have been gone for a long time! Trying to get going on this venture of Stampin' Up and not having much luck. Recently I have been following a gal, that post's CASE cards...and since I am the same as her...I thought I might give it a try!
This die set, is by far, my most favourite EVER!! I love it. Botanical Builder Framelits. I tried the Collar Card Technique or Peekaboo card, as I call it, to showcase one of my cards.
Thanks for looking!
