Blossoms in Bloom

I've been playing a lot with this set. It isn't one that I thought I would like much at first. It seemed pretty confining when I saw it in the catalog. Boy was I wrong! I have used it many, many times for all occasions! Here are a few of the samples I've made recently. The Blossoms in bloom set has a set of die cuts that layer up really nicely. If you look close you can see that there is a black die-cut and a white die-cut. I traced the die on a piece of rainbow glitter paper and fussy cut that out to go as my base. I layered it all on a Whisper White card base backed with a piece of Black cardstock. The happy birthday greeting is also in the stamp set. It has several sentiments in it. This one really shines in person with all that glittery paper! This next one was a lot of fun to make. I did a partial die cutting technique to get the banner look in the middle of the blossoms.

Forever Ferns

It's been Forever...Ferns! I've been getting my Stampin mojo back in shape lately. I've had lots of time due to the COVID Crisis. We have been home enjoying quality time since Spring Break in April. It has been a huge blessing to have this time with my kids. I have been reminded what it was like to be a stay at home mom.  My classes are going strong, in spite of the social glitches. We meet on the 3rd and 4th Saturday of each month. This month we will be playing with the new  Forever Ferns stamp set and matching die. I have seen so many fantastic samples with this set! Here are the cards we will be making this month...most likely. I'm still playing so, they may change! This first card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. The background rectangle is actually a clear block inked up with celery, old olive, garden green, and Bermuda bay ins. I spritzed the inked block with water and let the color run together. Then, I just 'stamped' the block onto my whisper whit

Polka quilt

I just love projects that can be made with my leftover scraps! This is a great example of just that kind of project. The colors are fun and sunny. Notice how the ribbon goes under the rectangle with the button to really make it pop!

Here's to you

I didn't really know what to do with these little dress form dies at first, but I love this card! Big girls can play paper dolls too!

Roving Butterflies

This amazing framed piece was made by my friend Jimi. I love how the butterflies seem to be coming off the glass and invading the room. The colors are super fun! What a great gift idea!

Framed Family

This beautiful wall hanging was made by a member of my group. A family picture would finish it off in the middle below the M. The great thing about a project like this is that it can be done to fit any color scheme. The letters are all die cut using the Big Shot. I'm thinking of offering this as a class. Would you like to attend?

Hummingbird simplicity

I love the simple lines of this card. The hummingbird pops out in the bright green. What scrap papers do you have lying about? Pull them out and make some cards like this with scrap stripes. Easy peasy!
