Yellow Bush – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0027

Awe yellow. . . . . . Adding an abundance of yellow to a card makes me feel like I’m sending sunshine in an envelope.  No other color gives me quite that warm feeling.  :)

Today’s card was created by using the branch stamp in the Colorful Seasons stamp set in an unexpected way.  Just by changing the direction of branch and adding the flower stamp gives the look of a flowering bush, I like it!

She Believed She Could – Stampin’ Up! Card

She Believed She Could

Hello there,

I have a very lighthearted card project for you today using a super cute new stamp set, This Little Piggy.  Holy Cow! (or pig) the images in this set are so fun and sweet.

 I gave that flying pig lots of motion by including the flourish stamp from the Star of Light stamp set.  Great way to get more use out of that beautiful Christmas themed set, woot woot!

Timeless Textures and Daisies – Stampin’ Up! Card and how to organize your sponges

DSC_0026

Hello there and happy Monday!

I was thinking this morning about a sentiment in the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Helping Me Grow, which is “thanks for helping me grow.”   Did you know you help me grow?  Everyday when I sit down to create I try to come up with something new for you.  You inspire me so much to look around my craft room and seek out new stamp sets, products and techniques in order to keep things fresh and exciting in my craft and yes, help me grow.  For this I am so thank for you!  In turn, I hope you are inspired by what you see here and you never tire of growing along with me.

Today I teamed up the Helping Me Grow stamp set with it’s big bold flower images with the Timeless Textures stamp set to create my collage background.  The Timeless Textures stamp set has super collage elements.  There is no end to the different backgrounds you can create with it.  These are a couple of must have sets.

On another note. . . . . . 

DSC_0001 (1)
Over the weekend I took stock of some tools that I use everyday and boy were my sponges worn out and really, really sad looking.   Using worn out sponges is not good.  You don’t get the same results like you do with a new sponge and they are so cheap to replace.  So I replace mine once a year.   I completely dumped my sponges in the trash and start over.
Organizing your sponges is super simple and saves so much time having your sponges set up so you can visually see the color you are looking for.  I highly suggest this!
Purchase a few packs of Stamping Sponges, item #141337.  They come 3  round sponges to a pack.  Cut each sponge in half and then each half in half and then each one of those in half.  You will have 8 sponges from one single round sponge.  That gives you 24 sponges from one single pack.
Note:  for the sponge topper, you can use a 1.5″ square of card stock, a 1 1/2″ circle punch or any label punch or die you have in your arsenal that is as wide as your wedge of sponge.  Create your topper for each sponge out of card stock that matches your  ink pad.  If you don’t have the matching card stock then sponge your topper with that ink color.  :)
I write the name of the color on each end of the topper and fold it in half, sandwich the sponge with it and then staple it on.  That gives you a great handle to use and your fingers don’t get as inky when you use it.
Mine are stored in a tackle box tray.   The tray had a lid but I’m too lazy, I mean time efficient to keep opening the lid so I took it off.  :)

Happy Stamping!

 Until my next post. . . . . . 

Huge Hugs!
