A time for Celebration …

Hello Stampers …

Happy 4th of July!  Hope you are enjoying this beautiful day.

My apologies for the lateness of the post … I spent most of yesterday at the hospital with my Mom.  She was admitted for an irregular heart beat and blood pressure.  They got the blood pressure stabilized but not the heart beat.  I will be going back up today, and will keep you posted.

In honor of the July 4th celebrations… I have created a quick -n- easy card for you!101_1374

I used the new stamp set “Simply Stars”.  I love stars, I find them so versatile – they are great for almost any occasion.   I stamped them with the White Craft Ink and then embossed them… it was done on a single sheet of cardstock and then cut into the three pieces.


The reflection of the star was created by stamping it directly onto the cardstock in Real Red Ink and then stamping and cutting out the Navy star … I popped it up using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here is a complete list of supplies:

Polka Dot -n- Flower Shop Parade …

Hello Stampers!

Welcome to a brand new week.

We have officially entered the summer season so what better to celebrate than a parade!  This week I will be posting a “parade” of new stamp sets that I will be featuring at my upcoming Hostess / Customer Appreciation Party!

Each day will feature a new stamp set … keep a list as I will be hosting a “Guess my favorite new stamp set” challenge at the party.  If you are interested in attending … leave a comment or message me!

Today’s featured stamp set is … FLOWER SHOP


Along with the Flower Shop stamp set, I used the new “Million & One” stamp set – stamped in Old Olive.  I love the font on this set, it is so beautiful.

The flower was stamped using VersaMark and heat embossed with the Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder.  It is slightly darker than the Pumpkin Pie Polka Dot Parade Designer Series paper I used, but still looks good.

And if you’re going to give someone a card that says “A Million & One Thanks” … don’t you agree, it needs some bling!  I not only used the Rhinestones, but added a little more sparkle to the flower by using Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter!

Here is a list of the items used today:
