Had to taxi my middle son back to DC to law school yesterday after his Orlando flight was cancelled on Monday because of the snow. Drove from 5 am to 7 pm to DC and hopped back on I95 until 11 pm. Stayed over in NC on my return trip only to dream all night that I forgot to post the metallic washi tape!

Back on the road today to Orlando…

SU What I Love – Sale-a-Bration Stamp

February 14, 2016

This is a Valentine for all of you!
Sweet class attenders, blog readers, and comment leavers… Know what I love?


I love two-step and three-step stamping with monochromatic colors so the SAB set What I Love was one I definitely wanted. However, I just got around to stamping with it- and I kept it quick and simple for sure…but one little thing I saw on the big screen at our last convention meeting caught my eye, and I am sure you will find really neat…

SU What I Love Banner only

A wrap around banner…

now that was something new for me to try on this notecard (5″ x 3.5″.)

SU What I Love fold around banner front

I only stamped twice on this card- the outline image in Bermuda Bay and inside flower with Soft Sky ink. When I added the Pool Party for the third color, I did not like it at all. So, I just tried it again with two colors. I was not even frustrated since it was so easy to stamp! Actually, even when I was off a teensy bit, I liked the white coming through- so much character on this CAS card (heeheehee). Check out how the banner sentiment wraps around from the front of the card to the inside of the card:

There are some more pretty images in the set
that you can get for FREE with a SAB order of $50.

For a little more inspiration, take a look at these samples from Stampin’ Up… I really like the simple tag with the two toned green leaves and the emboss resist on the bottom card, don’t you?

SU Easter Lamb


February 12, 2016

I pulled out the cute little SU Easter Lamb to create something.
It is a $10 wood mount stamp hiding on page 24 of the Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog.
I didn’t mount it on the wood block though, I just attached the sticker to the stamp itself and used it as a clear mount- a little temporary adhesive and it sticks just fine to an acrylic block!

SU Easter Lamb White Pen

To jazz up this fine line image, I used my Signo white gel pen to color in some of the lamb’s wool- mostly the bigger circles. I colored in his little hooves and gave him a touch of Blushing Bride to his ears. I also colored over the blades of grass with some Pear Pizzazz marker. I was inspired by Amy’s design over at Freshly Made Sketches # 223:

FMS Final 223-001

SU Hello by Sarah

Wouldn’t you be happy to get this cutie in the mail? I sure was…my downline Sarah Chatley was inspired by a card by Tami White and  sent this sweet card along with a Valentines treat of tea lights to me last week. It made me realize how beautiful watercolor washing is on a card and how super fun it is to be on the receiving end of the whole card making scene!

This stamp set is one of the Sale-a-bration sets leaving the line-up on February 15
so get it now if you want it!
