Going Global Father's Day Cards

Here are two Father's Day/Masculine cards I made using the Going Places DSP, Going Global Stamp Set and Timeless Textures Stamp Set.  The ribbon is some retired ribbon but is was the right color and size.

Birthday Blooms Mother's Day

I fell in love with the Flower in the Birthday Bloom Stamp Set.  I wanted to make a Mother's Day / Birthday Card with this set.  I could not make up my mind on the colors, so I used 3 different combos.  Combo 1:  Soft Sky, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand, Whisper White.  Combo 2: Blushing Bride, Calyso Coral, Mint Macaroon, Sahara Sand, Whisper White.  Combo 3: Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Smoky Slate, Whisper White.  The inside of the cards are below.   I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut out these blooms.

Timeless Texture meets Picture Perfect

The other day I came across a card done by Anna Smith.  I loved how she made a beach scene with the new Timeless Texture Stamp Set. So I decided to sit down and create a beach card using the Timeless Texture, Wetlands, and Picture Perfect.  I have been wanting to use the Starfish from the picture perfect stamp set for some time.  
The Sand and Water was easy to creating using the Timeless Texture.  I sponged the sky using So Saffron and Soft Sky Ink.

Bringing Birthdays Back!

Not sure if you have seen this but Sharon West a Stampin' Up! Trainer at the Home Office started #Imbringingbirhtdaysback campaign and I thought it was a great idea.  This started on the Social Media but I am not a big user of the social media world.  I know I should but I just don't.

I decided I would change it around for my customers, and send them a handmade Birthday Card.  So for my Customers if you send me an email ( )with your birthday (just the month and date), and mailing address if I don't have it already, I will send you a handmade Birthday card in the mail on or around your birthday.

Thanks again for stopping by!

January's Thank you Cards

I am a little late posting these but these were my Thank You cards for January's Orders.  Last Year I started to send out thank you cards to my customers when they place an order.  I have been trying to send out the same card but somethings I send out cards, I already have made.  I add a little insert that says:
Thank you so much for your recent order.
Here is a gift for you!
Regift and recycle
Send this card to a friend!

That way the customers get the joy of receiving one of my handmade cards but can reuse them. These cards were cased from the sample in the SAB catalog.  I used the SAB What I love Stamp Set, I fell in love with this set and really wanted to use the White Embossing Powder and the monochrome look.  I used Soft Sky and Mint Macaroon.  I started stamping a piece of cardstock with the Versa Mark and coated with White Embossing Powder.  I had to use my blender pen and ink pad to color inside the leaves.  I am not sure why but this stamp set does not have the inside stamp to color the leaves. I stamped all of them the same way and just rotated the paper for a landscape and portrait card.  I rounded the corners of the bottom of the one.  It was fun to change them around a little.  I did touch them up using the Wink of Stellar on the flowers which does not show up in the pictures.  I loved the way these turned out and hope you do too.  

Warning:  So if you place an order through my online store, make sure you DON'T select the option for NO CONTACT from your demonstrator,   If you do, I will not have your mailing address so I can not mail you a Thank you card and a annual Christmas Card.
