Aren’t these so cute! I love the Mixed Bunch stamp set and coordinating punch. It makes life so much easier to create things like this. They work up so fast! Just get the large paper clips at your local office supply store and you have great little bookmarks to share!

I thought I had posted this a while back, but my Friday Night Stamp Gals pointed out that I did not. There are so many talented stampers who did this design out in the blogesphere that I can’t name them all. This was actually easy, but used a lot of inks! 6 in all!
It’s a shadow stamping technique where you just stamp two colors that go together (one being lighter than the other) and it gives you such a pretty effect. The inks are Cajan Craze & Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green & Pear Pizzaz, Concord Crush & Wisteria Wonder. Add a little glitter and it’s so beautiful!
Mary Fish did a card with this design a while back (couldn’t find it on her site but I pinned in Pinterest) and I really need some generic birthday cards. This card didn’t come out as I would have liked it, not sure what’s missing, but I haven’t posted in a while and wanted to get something up on the site! It was actually a very involved card – doesn’t look it, but it was – took me over an hour to create! Maybe it was the glass of Limoncello that slowed me down!!!

I wasn’t thrilled with my bunny envelope treat holder from a few weeks ago. It just didn’t look right. I found these BIG goggly eyes in my stash and stuck them on instead of punching out a bunch of circles. Since I can get about 50 of them at the Dollar Store for a buck, I thought this was a more economical way to put the eyes on. Isn’t it so much better???
We’ve been SO lucky this year up in New England! Unless you like the snow of course! We’ve had hardly any snow this year, I’m not sure if our snow blower still works! But, even so, I’m SO ready for spring! We are housebreaking a new puppy so going outside in the cold is no fun!!!
Ok, on to the card….it’s a simple but so sweet. I’ve been going through my sets and pulled out some ones I haven’t used for a while. Petite Silhouettes is in the spotlight this week! This can be used for just about any occasion. Easter, birthday, Mother’s Day, you pick!

I did a bunch of cards that are similar, but have slight difference. I used retired DSP, Elegant Soiree. That was such beautiful paper, I really miss it! But I did stock up a bit I just wanted to show how you can utilize a bunch of different stamp sets you have!

This makes me long for summer! I’ll have to wait a bit because we are getting a few inches of snow tomorrow! We’ve been lucky, no real snow for us since that freak snow storm back in Oct!
Here are more products from the Occasions Mini. I love the ice cream stamp! This is a great card for anyone. I was inspired by some great stamper out there, but I can’t find it now because I did this card a few weeks back. This will be a project in an upcoming workshop as well.

Now that I’m passed Valentine’s day projects, I’m working on Easter stuff. I’m doing a craft show on St. Patrick’s Day so I’ll need to have my stash of Easter cards & treats to sell.
I’ve been eyeing this set for a while and decided I needed a new Easter stamp set. Stay tuned for more!

So, you probably know that Fresh Vintage is my favorite SAB set this year! I decided to start some Mother’s Day gifts early this year. This will be a workshop on March 30th. You’ll make 6 cards with envelopes and the box for $24.00!
My Godson is going to be a daddy! Boy, do I feel old! I’ve know his mom since we were 4 years old….again, feeling old! It’s so great to have a friend who’s known you for just about your whole life! I offered to do the baby shower favors – I did shower favors for when her daughter had her baby a few years ago, so I had to offer when her son, also my Godson, has his baby. These little pillow boxes are the easiest thing to do. The set is an old retired set, Baby’s First. I was going to sell it, but my team member BEGGED me not to get rid of it so now she has it! I’m so glad she talked me out of selling it because I forgot how cute it was! And yes, it’s a boy!
