Thoughtful Branches

As promised, here's the new limited time stamp set and matching framelit! Available only for the month of August!
I have seen some fabulous Christmas cards on Pinterest using this set. I may have to try that next!

This looks like a hydrangea flower to me. I used Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry (stamped off) for the flower. It's hard to tell from the photo, I added Wink of Stella to the flower.

Just a simple masculine card. The trees are Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green (stamped off).

Only a few days left for Bonus Days!  Don't miss out on your free money.  You can use it in August towards this great bundle!

Keep stamping!

Jar of Love

I think this is my new favorite!  There are so many possibilities with this stamp set and matching framelit.

 If you look it up on Pinterest, you will find tons of fun examples.  Here's a couple I made that were inspired by what I found on Pinterest.
I love how there are dies to cut out all these little pieces -  the flowers, the bows - even the jar and greenery if I wanted to.

Aren't these lightning bugs just so cute!  And the saying comes with the set too. 

Don't forget - not much longer to earn free money from Stampin' Up!  

Next time I'll share the special limited time stamp set and dies. They are fabulous!

Keep stamping!

Penned & Painted

I won a $25 shopping spree for recruiting in June!  This is the stamp set I picked out - Penned & Painted.

I had fun playing around with it!  Here's a couple cards I came up with:
This uses the new In Color - Flirty Flamingo, along with Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz

Another new In Color - Peekaboo Peach, some more Flirty Flamingo along with Always Artichoke, 
Pear Pizzazz and Basic Gray. I love this new Burlap Ribbon! I added some Wink of Stella
to the small Peekaboo Peach flowers for a little extra sparkle

Stay tuned for more examples with new stamp sets and a special limited time stamp set!

Fresh Fruit

It is the time of year for fresh fruit!  We had card class last Thursday and I served my favorite summer dessert - Angel Food Cake, strawberries and Cool Whip.  So yummy!  I thought I would share some fruity cards I made.  These all use the new Fresh Fruit set and the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.
This was super easy. Stamp some pears on some Whisper White, use the Polka Dot embossing folder for a little extra texture.  Mat some DSP and add a sentiment.  Quick & easy card!

I used the Shimmery White cardstock for the background on this one.  Some quick stamping and then a little spritz of water gives it a watercolor look. Finish it off with a sentiment & some bakers twine.

Another quick and easy one.  I took a strip of scratch paper and laid it across the cardstock. Stamp all around and onto the scratch paper.  When you remove it, you have a perfect spot to add a sentiment!

This is my favorite.  I saw this technique at On Stage in Salt Lake City and wanted to try it. The circle is Watercolor paper. I stamped the peach and then spritzed it with water. It's hard to see in the picture but I embossed it with clear embossing powder. I need to practice some more on this technique - the embossing powder didn't stick to the wet paper as well as I would have liked. 

Did you see the latest deal from Stampin' Up?  It's bonus time!  For every $50 you spend (at 1 time) in July you get a $5 bonus coupon that can be used in August.  Start making your lists now!

That's all for now.
