Happy Wednesday!

And I have a happy card for you today. This is another of the masks that come in the  Happy Patterns Decorative Mask (item #138313) set. The same time I did the SHINE! card, I did this mask.I took my Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write marker and wrote "happy" in the "happy" open area. :)

It's just a happy card. :) Wouldn't you have fun pulling this out of an envelope?

OK, I'm outta here. Have a WONDERFUL day, and be sure to make the time to stamp something!

Easter Lamb - 2016 Occasions Mini

Happy Wednesday! :)

Today's card is brought to you by the Occasions Mini - specifically, the Easter Lamb stamp (item #140740).

Colors are Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, Lovely Lilac, and Basic Gray.

Be sure to notice the large dot embossing folder - a little texture is my fave! :D

I used Stampin' Write markers to color this cutie in - or an Aquapainter. I just think he's too cute for words! :)

OK, I'm outta here! Have a wonderful day! Be sure and make the time to stamp something!

Shine! Card - 2016 Occasions Mini & Sale-Brations Mini!

It's Wednesday again! :D Welcome Back!

Today's card is a fun one. The die cut and stamp set are from the Occasions Mini, the stencil and spray stuff are from the Idea Book, and the designer series paper (DSP, in case you've forgotten! :D) is from the Sale-A-Brations Mini!

Colors are Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Soft Sky.

First, I took a cardfront-sized piece of card stock and the Happy Patterns Decorative Mask (item #138313 - Kathy exclaimed, "How did I miss this?!?"), and positioned them as straight as I could. :D Next, I took a Stampin' Spritzer (item #126185) filled with regular ol' rubbing alcohol and Daffodil Delight re-inker and spritzed the pattern onto the card stock. I let it dry, then cut it with the Sunburst thinlet (item #140617). I should have embossed before I cut, but I didn't. :D The "Shine" is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set (item #140722).

I attached that to a piece of the Soft Sky Perfectly Artistic DSP (item #141021), which I got for FREE. :D My husband likes this one of a pile I made, I think because of the bright colors and the fun shape.

OK, I'm out of here! Have a wonderful week - and be sure to make the time to stamp SOMEthing!

Just For You Card - 2016 Occasions Mini & Sale-A-Brations

Welcome to Wednesday! :)

This week's card is using a stamp set and punch from the Occasions Mini, and a stamp from one of the FREE SAB sets.

Colors are Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla.

The punch is a carry-over from the Holiday Mini; it's called the Curvy Corner Trio Punch (item #139683), and you can find it on page 31 of the Occasions Mini (link above). The distressing set I used is called Timeless Textures (item #14051), on page 29 of the Occasions Mini. The "just for you" is from the frees set BOTANICALS FOR YOU (item #141234) on page 4 of the SAB Mini (link above).

It's a fun set to distress with! There's a lot in the free set to use, too - be sure to check both catalogs out! :)

OK, I'm outta here! Have a WONDERFUL week, and be SURE to make the time to stamp SOMEthing!!!!

Valentine's Berry Basket

Surprise! :) I'm back again this week!

I was going to save this for next week, but if you ordered NOW, depending on where you're located, you might be able to get the supplies for this in time to make favors for Valentine's Day - which is a week from Sunday. Plus, it's SALE-A-BRATION - get something FREE for every $50 you spend!

There's NO STAMPING on this basket. It's all paper! After I cut the berry basket, I embossed it with the large dot folder. The Real Red I cut at the same time as the Whisper White - the whole thing went together quite quickly!

For card stock and filling, I'm guessing this cost me less than 75 cents to make! It's not too big; if you want to make it sturdier, you can cut some press board (or an old cereal box!) into a 2.5" square to put between the layers of the berry basket.

OK, y'all, I'm outta here. I'm going to TRY to post once a week for a while, things that are exclusive to my blog. :) Have a wonderful week - and be sure to make the time to STAMP something!

Welcome to Monday!!! Did you have a good weekend???

Some of you know that I'm going to be heading to Oregon again in a month, for about a month. My stepdaughter is getting married, and we're going to take the opportunity to take a little time on the beach. :) It's where I love to be, and so does Kenn.

These photos are from our trip in 2012; this is in Yachats, at our favorite beach, Smelt Sands. I so cannot wait to get to my ocean again!!!!!!! :)

I'm going to be planning another book for this trip. It's going to be difficult, because I don't know if my laptop is going to be able to travel or not. It's not doing too well. :/ But we'll see what happens! :)

I just LOVE MDS. I sincerely wish you would play with it! I think you'd love it!! :D

OK, I'm outta here. Have a wonderful day - be sure to make the time to STAMP something!!
