I'm Back! And I am celebrating 10 years!

Well, I am ready to get back to stampin' after spending the summer hanging with the kids.  My two oldest are now nestled into their college routines again (one in her 2nd year of dorm living and the other is living in a rental house with 4 of his friends.)  The youngest seems to be settled into her new middle school routine.  Now to stamp. 

The new 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog is fabulous with new colors, plenty of new trendy and chic stamp sets, and wonderful accessories.  And now the Holiday Mini is in full swing with wonderful ideas and product.  Just need to figure out what I want to start with first.  Of course I will be using designer papers.

Check back next week.  I hope to have several new fall samples up and maybe even a few holiday samples.

I am also celebrating 10 years as an SU! Demonstrator.  Time flies when you are having fun!

Build-A-Bear Laundry Line

Just wanted to share a cute laundry line.  The clothes are from the Beary Best Friends stamp set.  The background paper is of course from the Sweet Pea Designer paper.

Wishing for warmer weather!

It has warmed up a tad and the snowfall from December 18th is melted all away, finally.  This cute card features the sunflowers from A Flower for All Seasons ( a set you can get for free during Sale-A-Bration).  My friend and fellow stamper, Kim S, designed and colored this card.  I love how she used sponge daubers to color the image.  Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry make for a bright and cheery note in the midst of winter.  Enjoy!

Sweet Pea Inspiration

The color inspiration for this card comes from the Sweet Pea designer paper stack.  I used a tone on tone for the Teeny Tiny Wishes greeting, (it's a little hard to see in this picture.)  Punched a 1 3/8" circle from the taken with teal layer to create the frame focal point.  Enjoy!

Love Bandit #1

Love Bandit is very cute.  Stamped with a good friend, Kim, and she came up with this cute card.  It uses Going Gray, Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink and Pink Passion cardstocks.  Added some texture with the Polka Dot SU! folder.

Love You Much and Sweet Pea Designer Paper

I have been trying to get more correct color on my pictures, so now the pretty in pink and mellow moss look good, but the white background seems a little blue (lol). I like the Sweet Pea designer paper and the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt pieces. I used a marker to color in the letters and the new Pinking Hearts Border. Enjoy!

Stampin' Royalty Birthday Card Challenge #1

You guessed it, more Sweet Pea designer paper!! I could go on and on with this paper. I will try to use more of the different colors next week. The image is from the Sale-A-Bration Vintage Labels.  In the meantime, I found a brand new website for challenges, Stampin' Royalty. The challenges are great for quick inspiration and have really cut down on my design time. I am hoping to post 3-4 times/week as this new year gets started and the challenges will help me break out of my comfort zone. For all my customers out there, please let me know what you would like to learn and what other information you would like to see on my blog. Please leave me a comment with your wishes and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 11

I found a lovely color challenge at Stacey's Stamping Stage.  And lucky for me, there are several papers in the Sweet Pea designer paper stack that match the color scheme.  Staz-on ink stamps very well on the satin ribbons and the new Love Bandit set from the Occasions Mini Catalog is too cute.

Pals Paper Arts 24 Sketch Challenge

Sweet Pea designer paper strikes again.  I love that there are so many designs and color choices in the paper stack.  Greeting is stamped with Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Check out the Pals Paper Arts 24 Sketch Challenge, which I used to design this card.  Expecting some more snow today.  Hope to get lots of stamping time in on Saturday.  Hilary wants to design her class valentine cards.   I will post as soon as we get a prototype.

Mojo Monday 120

I am back!  We had a wonderful and quiet holiday.  Phil and Avery successfully completed the Fall semester at the University of Maryland.  Phil is off to Paris for the winter term, a study abroad course about the history of music and art in Paris at the turn on the 20th century.  Avery is also taking a geography course over the winter term as well.  Hilary is back to school too and hopefully getting to make the candy houses tomorrow at school.  They were originally going to make candy houses on the last day before the winter break, but we were covered in 17 inches of snow!  I did enjoy having all my kids under the roof again and subsequently didn't get much stampin' done.  But it's a new year and here we go....  This sketch is the Mojo Monday 120 Sketch.  No stamping on this card.  All the designer paper is from the Sweet Pea Paper stack in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  Greeting is from the Chit Chat Rub-ons.  Loving the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.
