Balloons for your Birthday

This set is so much fun.  This is only one creation out of many I have made featuring the stamp set Balloon Bash.  I really enjoyed using some primary colors like Daffodil Delight, Real Red, and Night of Navy to showcase this set.  The picture does not really show how I cut out and "popped up" the "HB" in the center of the card, it really adds a lot in real life.  I surely hope you get to spend some time stampin' today.

World of Dreams

The more I use this set the more I hope and pray it does not retire on May 31!!!!  I am thankful we will not be saying good-bye to Hello Honey or Mossy Meadow for another year.  I used the Deco Labels framelits to spotlight the bird nest.  You could certainly use the Labels Collection framelits that are part of the weekly special.  Today is the day to quit procrastinating and get your taxes done!!  Taxes THEN stampin' for today.

Butterfly Basics - I miss you!!



I personally am in LOVE with this stamp set - Butterfly Basics, and so are all my stampin’ friends.  That’s what makes me so sad.  Soooo many of my friends missed out on this stamp set and now have to wait until it comes back in stock with Stampin’ Up!.  The good news is I hear it will be very SOON!!!!

The color combination on this card is something I am really loving right now as well – Pink Piroquette, Old Olive and Melon Mambo.  I have always been a big fan of the Hardwood background stamp and I use it whenever I can!  I used Stampin' Write markers and Blender Pen to add some dimension to the flowers.  I like the weathered look of how the ribbon is laying on the bottom of the card as well.   If you want to check out what Stampin' Up! is all about, click HERE

I surely hope you get to stamp today!!

    World of Dreams Watercolored

    The more I look at this card the more I really like it.  This card was featured at a recent Technique class I offered.  It has such a WOW effect but is so very simple to create.  Have you ever stamped with your Clear blocks?  It is a great way to add a different effect to your cards.  On this card we colored with Stampin' Write Makers onto the clear block and then spritzed the block with water before "stamping" the block to the paper.  It is best if you use your paper piercing mat as a nice firm surface prior to stamping with the block.  Give this easy technique a try today and send me a pic, I'd love to see your creations.  Happy Stampin'!!!!!
