Sailing Into Father's Day

Hi stampers!  VBS is kicking my rear :-)  In the best way of course!  I had planned to blog more and maybe even stamp but 300+ kids, dancing and keeping up with Ian while Jon is out of town has proved too much for me, lol!  Tomorrow is the last day so hopefully I can rest up and get my act together then!

I did at least manage to get another Father's Day card done.  I think I'll give this one to my dad.  It's based loosely on a card on the cover of the catalog.



I sponged part of the label shape for a bit of an ombre effect.  A sponge brayer would have worked better but I was too lazy to do that (lol) so I used a regular old sponge.  I just love that print on the DSP!

Now, will Jon's present get here in time?  I was all ahead of the game for once and wouldn't you know, the store at the mall was out of what I was going to get him and of course the shipping hasn't updated to see if it will be here in time.  The best laid plans, ya'll! :-)

Anyway, maybe I'll FINALLY decide on my first new catalog order tonight!  I haven't ordered STILL!  Eeeeee!

Happy stamping!

Welcome Little One

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  We're busy with VBS over here but I'm trying to squeeze in a little stamping and blogging time!  I cased this card from the new catalog for a friend last week.  She's having a little girl after two boys so it was fun to get her a few girly gifts and make a girly card!  I just thought it was the cutest little, sweetest little card.  Don't forget that when you're short on time or creativity or both, the catalog has fabulous inspiration waiting for you!  And even if you don't have all of the exact supplies, you can always make it work!


The Bird Ballad DSP had the perfect sheet of pink paper!  My little critters are colored with Blends and the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit had the perfect little felt hearts for accents!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 165

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's time for a new challenge over at Fab Friday!  We have a sketch for you this round!


I went simple with this one and I'm not sad about it!  I chose to use the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack.  One Father's Day card out of the four I need, done :-)


I did just a little stamping with the Artisan Textures background set, I really love that one.  I also added some ink splatters with Soft Suede.  The little rope die cut was perfect instead of a scallop and way more manly, right?

And funny side note, my aunt and uncle who live in Indiana had this wallpaper in their bathroom that looked like old newsprint and this card totally reminds me of that LOL!

I just love how versatile these cards are.  Wanna scrapbook?  Great!  Wanna make some quick cards? Great!

Now make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Rainy Days Are For The Birds

Hi stampers!  If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen these birds already!  I didn't have anything to share yesterday but I did have them colored in.  This is what I made with them!  The stamp set and dies are in a bundle and coordinate perfectly to cut out this image with a fun label shape!  I miss some of our label dies that have retired but I really like this new shape!

I colored with my Blends on Crumb Cake which is fun to do and looks really cool!  Let me remind you that I am NOT a good colorer but these make it look like I might be!  So if I can do it, anyone can!


I also think this suite was made for the Subtle Embossing Folder!  It added just the right texture and I added a little more by splattering some ink from my Crumb Cake Marker.

It's rainy here today so I couldn't get a great photo.  I had to edit it quite a bit to get it to show more of a true Crumb Cake color so please don't think there is something wrong with my hand over there, LOL!

Happy stamping!
