Sunny Sunflowers!

Standard

I never miss a chance to stamp a sunflower. It’s one of my favorite flowers (and the state flower of my Homeland…)

Anyway, as you may notice, there is no stampin’ here… We’re getting off easy. Just a punch and a couple turns of the big shot handle and you have instant sunflower!

Hope you have a sunny and wonderful July!

Go see what Anne and Cheryl have for you

Another Smooch

Standard

You may get sick of all the smooching around here… or maybe not.  This new Bright Blossoms set is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.  In order to figure out what I was going to do for the class Anne and I are offering (see yesterday’s post) I made several samples…  And, I really enjoy the bright colors and cute, simple stamps.  They are perfectly cheerful…will make ANYONE’S day.  Wouldn’t  you love getting this card?

This card also features the Summer Smooches DSP.  I used the Tasteful Trim die to cut the ric-rac out…  And, that is Daffodil Delight Seam Binding (I think Seam Binding is my favorite all the ribbons).  We needing a good yellow ribbon…  Anyway, these products are sneak peeks into the new catalog coming out June 1…  This is your chance to get your hands on a few things early (only during April)…and there are a couple of items (the brads and stencil) that WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE during April…meaning they are NOT in the new catalog…  I will have upcoming samples with them…

 

And, for you clubbers… This is one of the cards we will make for the APRIL clubs…. exciting isn’t it…

 

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, but no blue…

Standard

So, a co-worker asked me if I had any baby cards to welcome a baby girl…for another co-worker who just welcomed her new daughter…  I didn’t have anything on hand, so this is what I came up with…

You might be wondering what the title of this post has to do with this card.  Glad you asked:

Something Old:  The stamp set.  Sorry.  It’s called A Slice of Life.  Was  a hostess set last year.  we have tons of current baby stuff  (of which I do not own, yet..) that could easily be substituted.  Or any image for that matter.  Doesn’t have to be baby.

Something New:    I used the new diagonal plate on the Simply Scored to make the AWESOME envelope….

Something Borrowed:  The DSP.  The Blushing Bride color (and in this case it is the dsp the envelope and the strip on the card).  It is LIVING ON BORROWED TIME.  This color will be retired at the end of May.  So, if you want it you better get your hands on it!!

Something Blue:  It’s a baby GIRL card… sorry no blue…

Anyway, speaking of retiring…  My friend, Bronwyn, keeps wanting me to do BLOG candy.  Well, not sure exactly how to do that, but this is my idea:  The retiring list will be posted on SU on April 15.  So, I propose a little contest….  Submit to me (by posting a comment to this post) 3 names of stamp sets you think will be retiring.  For every correct guess you have, your name will go into a drawing.  I will pull a name from all the ‘correctly identified’ entries and the winner will get a special prize.  Make sure you have have posted your comments by 5pm (HST) and I will choose and notify a winner by SUNDAY…

Good Luck…
