I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Blog Break

Hi all,
I haven't posted in a few weeks. Lot's of work commitments lately keeping me from crafting. I'm finally on vacation, but not staying home. Instead, taking a great trip to Europe. My blogging break will continue for another 3 weeks or so.

Happy stamping to the rest of you! I'll have fun looking at all the gorgeous cards that I've missed while gone.

A Berry Good Friend

Last night while watching baseball I made a card for this week's  Mojo Monday challenge. Even with all of the layers, this one went together pretty quick and easy. Love that!

Believe it or not, this card was inspired by the strawberry button. I ran across this button a few days ago while looking through my button stash and thought, "I have to use this!" So, last night, I pulled it out, put it on my stamping table and picked the stamps and accessories to match. I think it all turned out pretty cute.

 Stamps: Fruity Friends set by Taylored Expressions
Paper: SU Regal Rose and Whisper white card stock and Doodlebug Fruit Stand Patterned Paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Real Red, and Copics
Other: SU Chevron EF, TE Picket Fence die, strawberry button, SU linen thread, Nesties, the Big Shot and dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Wednesday.

Happy Birthday

Hi all,

Long time no post. Too much going on in my world these days equals no stamping time. It's a bummer! I did get to stamp a few hours Sunday afternoon. This is one of the cards that I made.

The layout is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #183.  The colors are from the Dynamic Duos #15 challenge. The colors this week are Daffodil Delight and Baja Breeze. And, since I used some dry embossing on the background panel, this works for Linda's Catered Crop Recipe Swap challenge.

The flowers are stamped in Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics. I cut them out and popped them up on the panel with dimensionals, then layered some yellow and gold Stickles in the centers.

Stamps: Daisy Bouquet by Taylored Expressions
Paper: SU Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White card stock and Doodlebug Flower Box patterned papers
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, SU Baja Breeze and Copics
Other: TE Houndstooth Impressions Plate, TE Floral Cutting Plate, TE medium scalloped border die, TE small tag die, Die-namics Fishtail STAX die, Kaiser blue rhinestones, SU Daffodil Delight stitched ribbon, TE linen thread, yellow and gold Stickles, sewing machine, the Big Shot, and dimensionals.

Thanks for looking in,
