Great Friend

Here is a card that we did at our last club. We used the stamp set "Great Friend" I really like this stamp set. I used Textured paper DSP Sweet Slumber Specialty, along with sahara sand, baja breeze, very vanilla. You have to use the stamp-a-ma-jig on here which is always fun. Puts your stamp exactly where you want it, it is a must have for a stamper. I cut out the butterfly and attached a dimensional behind it to make it pop. Also added SAB so saffron ribbon and a button I found out of my Mom's old button collection. The 2nd one here, I actually used the DSP Parsian Breeze, kraft, choc chip and whisper white. I found the ribbon at Hobby Lobby. I love the way it goes with the choc chip and the baja breeze. slipped a latte button on the corner. I got this idea out of the SU website. The girls were impressed and thought there would not be giving this card away to just anyone, it was going to be to someone special. Remember you can always duplicate....and send out tons. Well, I am off to bed, I have classes to take over the next three day and stamping will be the last thing on my mind, because there is a test at the end. Gotta pay attention. Hope this post finds you well & happy. Love to all, Lynn.

Card Box

Here is a card box that I did at my last club party. I used Gray 12x12 textured paper, along with the DSP Walk in the Park from the Occasions Mini catalog. I found this box somewhere on the web and will post in here once I can figure out how to add it. Real simple and easy. Used velcro to fasten the lid from flapping open. Added a flower from the Pretties Bulk Buy from SU, we added a little classic Kiwi Kiss to the flower to add some color with a sponge dauber, and finished it with a Jumbo Brad. This can be given for any occasion. Along with each box we made 6 cards each. Using the DSP Walk in the Park and used the multi sides to arange different looks and colors. We attached to Basic Gray on White CS. The girls had fun this this one, had a bit of a challenge, but they showed me they are all very creative women. Thanks so much for a great year, it has truely been alot of fun. Love ya all, Lynn.

Gone Fishin

Next, I was looking for some stamps to add to my guy pleasing selection & to complete some cards that people have pre-ordered me to do. I found these fishing stamps at Hobby Lobby on my most recent trip. I stamped the images in Close to Cocoa, using choc chip, very vanilla & DSP textured To the Nines. I then punched a couple of holes connecting the linen thread from the hook to the fish. I completed the card with the Happy Birthday on the inside. We fish alot, well my DH does mostly, but we all like to do it and a good family sport to do together. My manly card is complete. Thanks for stopping by, Lynn


Ok, it has been an extremely long time since my last post. Life has gotten way to busy. My boy's have started baseball, so that will be in full swing until mid July. Love watching baseball on a nice warm summer day. Here I used the stamp set "And Many Mower" from the occasions mini catalog April 1 - July 30,2009. The paper I used was Always Artichoke, Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, Whisper white, DSP Parisian Breeze & DSP Hostess 6x6 kraft. Used the markers and masking technique for the golfer guy and used two bigger brads that I found at JoAnne Fabrics. Great card for that avid golfer in your life. Thanks for looking

Here are some swaps that I have completed for upcoming Minneapolis Regionals for Stampin Up. This is my first time going to regionals and am very excited. Nervous, not knowing what to expect. I am not worried. What can be better than a Covention center full of people that love to do what I love. Can't wait to get inspired. So glad they are so close this year. I will update my blog with all the cool stuff I see. I can't wait. I got a new camera and I can't wait to take nice pictures for once.

Cheap Talk

Here was a fun card to make. I love this set as well. Cheap Talk!! I used Baja Breeze as my base, then used Ruby Red, Whisper White & Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP Textured CS. I layered that on the card. I then took two smaller pieces of Baja Breeze and Ruby Red and put brads through them and attached that to the card. I used dimensionals to pop out the bird/branch/saying. So simple. Have a great day.

Branch Out

Hello everyone!! Boy it has been a long time since my last post. I got this new set and absolutely love it. Branch Out. Here I used Mellow Moss, Rose Red, Choc Chip & Very Vanilla CS and stamped the saying Hello There. It seems like these are my first cards to go. Someone just wanting to say Hi. Very Simple. I used the Jumbo Grommet that are in the Occassions Mini Catalog. Hope you like it. Have a great day! Lynn
