I just love the stippled blossom's  stamp set.  I hope it doesn't retire in June.  I can't believe we are 2 months away from a New, Fresh and Fun catalogue.

This was created for a 95th Birthday for a very special lady!

I have made lot's of these card's or variations of.  What I did was I stamped pages of images.  Then while I was watching tv with the husband I cut them out.  I store them in the stamp containers that come with wood mount stamps and then I have a bunch of images ready to create with.  That's my tip of the day.

The colours I used here were Midnight Muse and Baja Blue, lucky limeade and old olive.  I embossed the midnight muse panel as well.  Pearls and Dazzling Details glitter add a pop of bling.
To give the card dimension, I added some stampin' dimensionals under some of the flowers and leaves.
It really adds some pop to the card.

Happy Stampin'

I am trying something different as a card maker, and as someone who is trying to be more organized.  Even though I have tons of craft supplies..... I am always scrambling to get a last minute card together.

I am going to start being several cards or projects ahead.  How nice it will be to just walk into my craft room and choose a card, instead of having to make it.  I am planning to spend time in my room everyday.  Again with the organization, I have realized i spend way to much time doing nothing.

This is the card i made last night for a Birthday today.   But I stamped more images then I needed and will put them in a little box so I can make more cards like this.  I also plan to do the fussy cutting when I watch TV.  I can spend time with my husband and get something creative done!!!  How's that for organization.

I used the Stippled Blossoms, Four Frames, Medallion and En Francais stamp set's .   The ink colours are Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze and Midnight Muse, lucky limeade and Old olive.
The images were stamped then fussy cut and glued down or put on Pop Dot's.  Over all pretty darn happy with this on a first go round.

It's great getting back into something you love, when life has pulled you away for a bit.

Happy Stampin'!

Hello Stamper's!!!!  

Apparently I have been MIA for so much longer than I thought.  But I guess that's what life is, it throws us some curves.  But I am back and stamping again and happy to be in my newly reorganized craft room.

I love this card, the colours are great for spring, which i swear is on the way.  Yesterday was sunny and beautiful and today SNOW!  That's Canadian weather for you.

I love this bunny stamp.  It is a part of the single stamp line and only available until the end of March.

This uses items from the Spring Catalogue and the SAB brochure.   Sale-a-Bration ends on the 22nd.  So you need to be quick if there is anything FRee you still have your eye on.

For every 60.00 in merchandise you spend you can get a free item from the SAB brochure.  Free is good!!!!
