Time is Running Out...

Good morning! Today is officially the last day to place orders for items in the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog and the new catalog is officially released tomorrow (I can't wait to show you all the great new items!) I thought it was only fitting to use one of our last chance stamp sets for this weeks Stamping 411 sketch challenge.

One of my favorite stamp sets has been Humor in High Heels but I don't seem to use it as often as I should. I stamped all the images with Black ink on the Whisper White cardstock and then stamped them again on various pieces of Thoroughly Modern DSP and cut them out with Paper Snips to create all the different pattern dresses.

Pretty much everything on this card is retiring, including: Thoroughly Modern DSP, Rose Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon (flipped over under the Rose Red Ribbon), and Bermuda Bay ink.

Pretty cute and I know any girl would be sure to love it. I hope you enjoy and come back tomorrow for your first chance to see some of the beautiful items from the new catalog.

It's all About the Scraps!

Good morning! I wanted to show you this quick card I put together from scraps from previous projects. This was all left over from the invitations we made for our annual neighborhood BBQ and I hated to throw away the extra flowers that had already been cut out. My favorite paper right now is the Island Oasis DSP, it's so perfect!

Sweet Birthday Wishes!

I hope you have all had a nice, relaxing father's day. Aidan and I have enjoyed pampered Chris today, including homemade chocolate chip Belgium waffles. While the boys played a Wii Nerf game I was able to break away long enough to make a card for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge. With the bright, hot weather we've been having I've been craving ice cream lately so I thought it was perfect for this challenge.

For the card I used the Sweet Scoops Stamp set and Pink Flamingo DSP. The card is pretty straight forward, after cutting out the individual ice cream scoops I used 2 Way Glue to cover them with Dazzling Diamonds.

I've got to get back to our celebrations so I hope you enjoy and all my love to our fathers on their special day!

Stamping 411 Challenge - Big Shot Tropical Flower

Happy Wednesday! I always look forward to see Saturday morning since we get to see what the new challenge is on the Stampin 411 site. Since I had Stamp-a-Stack on Sunday and still had one last card to design I decided to combine the two.

This is a pretty straight forward card and the ladies loved it! We got to use the new Favorite Thoughts stamp set from the mini catalog along with the Island Oasis DSP and Tropical Flower Bigz Die for the Big Shot. After cutting out the flower pieces out Iadded texture to them with both the Polka Dot and Lattice Embossing Folders. I finished off the flower with a small button from the Playground Designer Buttons.

This card was so much fun, I hope you enjoy it!

Tropical Birthday Wishes

No, I have not disappeared. As like all of us life has become a little crazy lately and unfortunately my stamping time has taken the hit. We enjoyed a great holiday weekend working in the yard and spending lots of time with friends, and even making our first trip to the pool for the season.

I was so excited when I saw this weeks sketch challenge at Stamping 411 and new I had to get back to crafting.
This weeks card features the Island Oasis DSP and Tropical Party Stamp set. I stamped multiple flowers in Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Tempting Turquoise and then cut them out with my Paper Snips. I also used the Tempting Turquoise 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (which I just found out this morning is being retired.) The greeting is from the Tiny Tiny Wishes Stamp set and was punched out with the Word Window Punch and then mounted on a piece cut out with the Modern Label Punch. The final touch was 2 Vintage Brads (also retiring) on the sides of the greeting.

I'm loving this DSP and stamp set and I know that getting this card for my birthday would definately brighten things up.

Hope you have a great week!
