Fab Friday 133

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  Does anyone else LIVE for Friday and the weekend???

I flipped the base, but other than that, it's pretty true to the sketch.  I had limited time to stamp so I had to keep it simple!

I have really got to use this suite a lot more, it's SO cute!  I just love the fun colors.  And I love that glimmer paper but man, does it shed quite a bit!  You can see some of it sticking to the lemon lime base.  EEK!

And this embossing folder does not seem to get the attention and love it deserves!  It's Fabulous!  Did you know that it's one of the thick folders?  So, it embosses really deeply and just looks so fun!

Anyway, if you see me with sparkles all over,  you'll know why ;-)  Make sure to check out what the rest of my amazing team did and play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Dear Deer

Hi stampers!  Life is getting away from me again, imagine that :-)  Anyway, we became members of our church here last week and learned some exciting news from a fellow couple in our class (and neighbors)!  They are expecting their fourth baby!  So, I came home and whipped this cute little card.

I had put off ordering this sweet little stamp set but finally caved, mainly for the bunny for Easter and I'm glad I did.  This little deer is just a dear, too!  And he or she is perfect for a baby card.  I colored it with my blends.  I'm still not as good with them as I'd like but I keep practicing!  The set also coordinated with the scallop circle punches and the embroidery hoops.  I passed on those because I'm TRYING to not own everything we sell (lol) and since they won't go through the mail easily, I talked myself out of them.  Of course I totally still want them ;-)

Anyway, a bunch of layering later and you have this!  You may be seeing a lot of those banners soon. I finally caved in and got Banners For You and the Bunch of Banners Framelits, mainly to use as accents on my cards.

NOW, I just gotta get this in the mail for my sweet friends!  I'm also super excited to finally have a church home again!  We never found anywhere in Chicago we fit for three years but we fit right in here the first Sunday we moved!  I'm also happy that it happens to be Ian's preschool as well!

Happy stamping!

Hello Easter

Hi stampers!  March is flying by so I better start using and sharing Easter things!  I made this card a while back after seeing cute little treat bag that one of the concept artists shared on her facebook.  I thought the color combo was great for spring.  I think she may have used pear pizazz but you know I can't make anything without lemon lime twist.  And I think I added bermuda bay so in the end, it kind of ended up my own thing but I love how inspiration works!

This set is just too cute.  You can stamp all kind of elements inside that egg, how cute???  And I used them to make the background as well.    The Petals & More thinlits also work really well with this set!

Happy stamping!

Mailable Monday - Lovely

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday here's to the start of a new week!  Let's hope it's more productive for me than last week!  The only thing I can't stop doing lately it seems, is eating!  LOL!  Hopefully I'm ready to buckle down and quit all the snacking this week.  Maybe if I say it here it will keep me accountable...highly unlikely (lol) but worth a shot I guess ;-)

I managed to do some stamping on Sunday afternoon.  I've been feeling less than inspired lately even with some new goodies and the Stamparatus in the house!

Anyway, I did make this card pretty quickly last week.

All you need is a stamp, some blends, some DSP and a die.  Pretty simple!  Well, I guess you need two stamp sets.  I pulled the sentiment in from the Hanging Garden set.  It's a great sentiment!  When in doubt grab some black and white DSP, add a pop of color, and you're done!

Wacky Wednesday

Hi stampers!  WHY am I having such a hard time getting back into the swing of things after the past two weeks????  Ian had school yesterday so I did a quick workout (wasn't feeling my best) and ran some errands and then had to grocery shop.  I always used to shop on Monday but now that Ian has therapy on Mondays, I've been doing it on Sunday which also throws me off but TUESDAY?  Blech!  LOL!  That pretty much took up my whole morning and then some!  Needless to say, I got nothing done around the house and didn't stamp.  If I don't get my act together today, it really be wacky Wednesday around here!

But I do have this pretty lady I made a few weeks ago to share.  I'm not quite sure how the blue in the Brusho works with my color palette here but I went with it anyway.  What I DO love is the sentiment I cut up from Yay You hostess set from the Occasions catalog.

And I can't for the life of me remember what dies I used so I'll have to look that up later.

Mailable Monday - Petal Passion

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  I've been off a day ever since we came back to Tulsa ON Monday last week.  I felt like Tuesday was Monday and I was just off all week.  I didn't get much done with my mom here which is the opposite of what usually happens.  But, today I guess I can reenter normal life.  That's always a struggle :-)  I haven't stamped much but I found a few things on my phone I haven't shared yet.

I really love the Petal Palette stamp set.  One of the reasons I love it is because it makes it super easy to make a stunning card.  I simply stamped this and colored it with my blends.  I added a few accents and it was done!  Easy and mailable!  The whole Petal Passion suite is great but sometimes I get caught up in trying to use it all that I forget to just keep it simple!

Hope you're having a more productive March than I seem to be, lol!  Maybe I'll get there...we shall see ;-)
