Flowering Yard!

This is our front yard. Everything is really starting to bloom. We have planted lots of new flowers this year. Lots of bulbs and lots of things in pots.

Things are doing really good. I hear the summer is supposed to be really hot so we will see how everything does!

Referral Thank you!

These are cards I made to give for referrals. Anyone that referred a friend to my catalog premier party got one. It is a one sided card that fits perfect in these little bags. The back is white card stock that has a hand written note thanking them for their referral and offering $5 off their next stampin up order or class.
I embossed just across the center of the bag and the dots are already on the bag. At first I was going to emboss the whole bag but it didnt fit in the embossing folder. So I just embossed across the center and really like how it turned out.
It just looks so delicate!

Last Two Projects for Catalog Premier Party!!

These are projects 5 and 6 for my catalog premier party tomorrow! I am frantically trying to finish getting ready. I still have lots to do. But it has been lots of fun doing it!
For the top card, I used the Floral Thinlits with Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry. I also used the new bigshot plate that just came out. It is great!
I never used my plates that came with the bigshot because I didnt like to mess with the tabs. It seemed like you needed twice as much room to do anything. So I used the magnetic plate and the regular clear plates to cut, sometimes I would use the precision base plate also. But when I wanted to emboss, I would either have to pull out my cuttlebug or pull out my cuttlebug plates to use with my bigshot. Now there is a new plate. It is called Big Shot Platform. It comes with a base plate, and a skinny plate. So when you are using thinlits you use both of the plates and when you want to emboss you just take out the plate for die cutting. Its awesome!!!

Onto my second project! I used the Jar Of Love Bundle for this project! LOVE this set!!! It comes with three sizes of mason jars, a lid, water, lots of flowers, a ribbon to go around the jar, a handle, bow and even a fish!
The papers I used are the Blooms and Bliss DSP. Somehow I forgot to order  the matching stamp set for this. Its wonderful too!

Gift Of Love!

This card was made with the Gift Of Love stamp set. It is a hostess set. It is really fun to use. It is three step stamping. I used Basic Black, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive. I used retired Melon Mambo ribbon but it would be really pretty with the new Melon Mambo ribbon with the white design on it. I ordered some but am still waiting for my first order from the new catty to get here!!
I have also used the new  Pop Of Pink dsp! It is my favorite!
This is one of the cards we will be doing at the Catalog Premier Party next week!

Happy Stamping !

Masculine Class Card #2

I love how this card turned out. It was so much fun to make. I loved the stamping. It seems like with all the die cuts now that there isn't a ton of stamping done. This card is lots of stamping and sponging.
It will be a card for my masculine card class coming up.
I wish I could take all the credit for this card, but I found it on Pinterest. It was done by Dawn Griffith and I think she cased it from someone else!

I used In the Meadow for the first time. I am so glad it carried over to the new catalog.
If you would like to sign up for this class that will be Thursday June 16th just go over to the contact me button on the sidebar and give me a shout!

Masculine Class!

I just love this new Swirly Bird stamp and die set. It will be available starting tomorrow at Stampin Up when the new catalog goes live. I can't wait!!!
If you need a catalog or would like to place an order just contact me!

I made this card for my masculine class coming up on June 16th.  I made it as a fathers day card but it would also be a great card for the 4th of July, or even a baby boy card. The colors could be changed to any color you want. It is a very fun card to make!

Tea Party!

We had a tea party at our house a few weeks ago. It was Kati, myself and our good friend Joan.
Joan and I did some stamping in the morning and watched the last episode of Downton Abbey in the afternoon. It was a great time!
Kati made all of these goodies for us. We had two kinds of little tarts, two kinds of sandwiches, little salads in teacups with yummy Orange Poppyseed dressing. White chocolate raspberry scones with clotted cream and lemon curd, several kinds of tea to choose from and also fruit in teacups. Good thing I have so many teacups because we used three each.
Also all of the teacups and teapots we were using for the first time ever!!
We had a great time!!
For anyone that is coming to my Catalog Premier Party we will be having a tea luncheon then also!
It will probably be buffet style so not quite the same as this one!!
Happy Stamping!

Pop of Pink Butterfly!

I saw this card on Pinterest and loved it. The lower picture is the original papers only changed a little bit. But I wanted to make it with papers that would be available in the new catalogue so I did that with the one in the top picture. The top one is done with the new Pop Of Pink dsp. I love those papers, my favorite color combo with gold thrown in. So it is melon mambo, basic black, white and gold.
The card uses the Botanical die set and also the butterfly die set. I am so glad the butterfly dies are being carried over into the new catty because I love those also!
Happy Stamping!
