July Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Well I really need to find it in myself to learn how to deal with the new operating system on my mac.  I have had a crazy Winter and Spring and suddenly it is Summer.  I love Summer and that is the theme of the Blog Hop for July.  So it isn't looking like Summer is going to be any less crazy then Winter and Spring were but I am going to attempt to get my blog up and running.  Starting with the July Blog Hop.  So here we go!



 So my first share is this cute Swirley Bird Bundle card all done up in Red White and Blue.  This is a very fun bundle of Stamps and dies from the new Stampin' Up! catalog and that brings me to the next part of the discussion of Summer.  Summer brings up some mixed emotions for me personally as it along with the beach and long days of no school bring the catalog transition and that means .... finding room in the craft room for more stuff and that is no easy feat after 12 years of being a demonstrator.


     So the picture below is the stack that still needs a home-so sadly these stamps will need to evict some retired product.  So Happy Summer- Happy New Catalog and happy stamp room rearranging for all my demo friends!

Grateful Bunch Bundle and Save


 Hey Stampers!  I didn't fall off the edge of the Earth.  I've had a challenging 4 weeks with my Father-in-law having a bad fall that ultimately resulting in his passing.  We are now putting back together our daily routines and hoping to move forward with the new normal.

I am sharing a card I did in my March Sketch class.  It features the Grateful Bunch Stamp Set and the Blossom Bunch Punch that are bundled at a discount until May 31 with a 15% savings.  I did this card in neutrals and used the absolutly gorgeous Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper and Sahara Sand and Basic Black Paper and inks.  The Saharah Sand Lace Trim adds such a vintage feel and the Basic Rhinestones are perfect to accent the flowers.  The Designer Series Paper will be retiring the end of May so I recomend adding a pack to your stach before it is all gone.  This pattern is rather simple however there are some others in the pack I just adore see one of them here on this tea cup.
 Because the stamp set is Photopolymer it is rather easy to add this stamped image of lace to the upper edge of the inside card panel below.  I love that we are paying so much attention these days to the insides of our cards!  Thanks for stopping in to learn about my card I hope you found a little inspiration and if you need to purchase some supplies to make your own project please feel free to use the links below to access my online store!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop- Favorite Stamp Set



 My Favorite stamp set is the theme of the Blog Hop for April- well that is a tough one.  So I narrowed it down to my favorite stamp set from the Spring Occasions Book.  I'm sharing a few cards today for the hop- First two are using freezer paper -I cut the rose out from freezer paper and ironed it on to Very Vanilla.  Sponged around the rose to color the base and then peeled the rose die cut off the card stock gently.  I then ironed that same die cut now all covered in ink to a Whisper White base.  Wallah- two cards one rose.  


Die cut sponged around and removed
