The Open Sea is back!

If you liked this stamp set as much as I did you are going to be really happy to see The Open Sea stamp set made it into the New 2012 Catalog! If you remember it was in a previous mini, I just love it and was thrilled to see it again. It is a great set for making "Manly Cards". I participated in a Chat and Challenge on a demo website called Sudsol recently. This is the card I made for that challenge. I was pleased with how it turned out.The "For You" is from Itty Bitty Banners and cut by hand.

Stamp sets: The Open Sea and Itty Bitty Banners
Cardstock: base- Crumb Cake, layers-Choc. Chip and Very Vanilla and Midnight Muse
Ink: Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, and Bashful Blue
Accessories: 2 1/2 circle punch, Cherry Cobbler brads, dimensionals.
The chip is stamped in Chocolate Chip and sponged with Bashful Blue

Thanks for looking! Now, go have a really blessed day and be a blessing to someone around you and you will be truly blessed!

Not into Blue- How about Gumball Green?

Well, I'm still playing with Betsy's Blossom, but this time I tried it with some of the other In Colors. This one highlights the Gumball Green with the coordinating 3/8" stitched ribbon. The other colors are Primrose Petal, Summer Starfruit, and Raspberry Ripple. I cut out the cute little bird and lifted him with a dimensional. This is a great all occasion card- stick a "Thinking of you" or "Happy Birthday" label on there and your done! A little pearl embellishment for the eye- Ta Da! Well, it's time for me to say  Ta Ta and see ya later. Be Blessed and be a blessing to some one else!

Betsy's Blossom in Blue

Hey Girls- How about some samples! Betsy's Blossom is on of the new stamp sets in the NEW 2012-2013 Stampin' Up Catalog and Idea Book! I made a couple cards for the open house using this stamp set and some of the new In Colors. I love Blue! It is one of my favorite colors, so I used the Midnight Muse as a base for these two cards. The Thank you card uses Marina Mist with Gumball green and the Midnight Muse. The second card is actually a Christmas card. Yes, it is time to start thinking Christmas! The DSP is from the Floral District package. I think it looks like a snowburst design. I love Blue at Christmas!  Are you finding alot of stuff you want in the new catalog. June and July are great months to host a workshop, Stampin' UP is giving hostess in June and July extra hostess benefits for a qualifying workshop, so send me an email or give me a call and schedule your workshop asap. Limited dates available! Later, Be blessed!
