Lotus Blossom Sympathy

We made this card at a recent All Occasion card buffet.  I really like the "triple" stamping involved with creating the lotus blossom image. This great stamp set paired with a favorite color of mine, Blackberry Bliss and you can't go wrong.  There is only one more day left to get this stamp set during Sale A Bration.  Click here to SHOP and get yours today!  I hope you get to stamp today.

We made this card at a recent card buffet.  I am lovin' Lost Lagoon more every day.  I really like it paired with Crumb Cake.  I used the stamp set Kinda Eclectic and some linen thread.  I also made this as a sympathy card using the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, it also turned out great.  This is a simple look but it makes a great statement, don't ya think?

Afraid of Heights?

Have you ever rode in a hot air balloon?  I haven't but I *think* it is something I might like to do one day.  I made this card with the DSP Irresistibly Yours from Sale A Bration.  You can get this awesome paper for FREE with a $50 order, but only until the end of March.  Shop HERE to get yours! I used the direct to paper technique for this card.  By that I mean I applied the Soft Sky stamp pad directly to the paper and drug it across the paper.  I used the Memento Ink to stamp the hot air balloon from Celebrate Today and then gently rubbed off the excess with a tissue.  I like the pop of color from the Daffodil Delight ribbon.  I hope you get to stamp today!

You're a Star

I broke out my Star Framelits that I have not used since Christmas for this card.  I used some of the 2014-2016 In Color DSP as well the matching Cardstock.  Colors are Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss.  The Happy Birthday is from Celebrate Today stamp set.  Of course the smallest stars are punched out of our awesome glitter paper.  This card was super simple and a great way to use up some scraps of paper.  Have a great weekend and for goodness sakes, make time to stamp something for someone.  If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, head on over to my online Store.

Ballerina Girl

I made this card for my bosses granddaughter who celebrated her birthday yesterday, she turned 5 just like my niece.  I had to do a good bit of searching before I could find any punch art where I had most of the punches.  I am excited how well this turned out. I really wish I could remember where I found the idea.  I used various punches including the Word Window punch, 2 3/8 scallop circle punch,  1 3/4 circle punch, Blossom punch, Extra Large oval punch, and the Flower Flair framelits for her tiara.  I hope she enjoyed her card as much as I enjoyed making it for her.  I hope you get to stamp today!!

Celebrate with Cake

I have always loved the combination of Pool Party and Real Red, something about it says Retro to me.  We made this card in my Stamp Club last month.  We used the DSP from Sale A Bration called Irresistibly Yours.  We used a brayer to roll on the Real Red Ink.  We used White Craft Ink with the Big Day stamp set, also yours FREE during Sale A Bration.  We cut it out with the Chalk Talk Framelits and tapped the Embossing Buddy on the finished cut out to give it a chalk board look.  You can order any of the items  used to make this card by visiting my website HERE.  I hope your day is filled with stampin'.
