Upsy Daisy in Pink

I decided to get the Upsy Daisy set since it's on sale through September. It is easier to work with than I thought. You can do so many techniques with this stamp, but I kept this simple .. just stamp and then glitter. The new Parisian Summer paper is SO nice. Finally a paper combo with burgundy!, as mine has been quite neglected. I really am liking the new soft Pink Pirouette color to work with!

Crazy for Cupcakes!

I've been waiting for a great cupcake set and was pleasantly surprised to find one in the new Idea Book & Catalog from SU! This is a simple card we did at my recent Papers & Punches class. The cupcake icing is finished off with dazzling diamonds glitter, which shows up much better in real life. The papers are Sweet Always and the scalloped edge is made so easily with the new Scallop Edge punch!

Baja Breeze Flowers

Yikes! .... two months of not posting. I doubt anyone still comes here! :) As many of you know, our family has gone through some major changes and find ourselves in a huge season of transition. While all that was going on, it was hard to even know what end was up some days. The Lord was certainly faithful and has been so gracious in showing us what's ahead. We are really excited and will share more soon.

Now that we know a little more about what the future looks like, things are feelin' a little more like "normal". That's almost funny to write because I'm not quite sure what "normal" is anymore! :)

Recently I had a "Papers & Punches" class. Having only two days to work with all the new things I was a little nervous!, but this is one of the cards that we did. SO many new papers! Love 'em! I promise there'll be more samples coming soon! I just uploaded a bunch, so come back and check in again. :)

Details on this card: New Eastern Blooms stamp set with the Green Tea papers. I'm really enjoying working with the new In-Color colors. This one is Baja Breeze ... notice the coordinating striped grosgrain ribbon! There are accessories that match every new color! Makes things easy for sure. Image stamped in Certainly Celery, matted on Old Olive. 3 Flower Punch with Baja Breeze and Bashful Blue, then using soft subtles brads. You can also flip this card vertically for a whole different look.
