Mornin’ y’all – it’s Monday again! I hope you had a super weekend and are refreshed and ready for the workweek!
I have no funny stories today – Duck Duck hasn’t been caught doing anything cute that I know about! My trip to the grocery store was not even sort of funny. Pretty boring weekend, really.
Which is exactly what I was looking for! 🙂 Hope you got what you were looking for this weekend, too!
I have a fun card for you today – I used a technique I saw on a blog somewhere. I can’t for the life of me remember where – but….I thank that SU! demonstrator for the idea!
To make this card, I used the pretty new stamp set called Flourishing Phrases and the matching Flourish Thinlits. Take a look-see:
Good Wednesday to y’all! Hope that your week is going well. I’m engrossed in trying to get back into the swing of things at home, receiving my boxes of toys from the post office, setting my stampin’ spot back up (I moved it a bit – and got all my fun new StampNStorage goodies all set up), and trying to kick my traditional post-business-trip cold. Cuz…why not? 🙂 It really is the only way to experience the entirety of a long trip, don’t you think?
My card share today is one that I did last week in preparation for not having my stuff or the energy to get it all together to be card making for a day or two. It uses the Wink of Stella “watercolor” technique that I did a few weeks ago (want to see that one? Here’s the link!) paired with the Beautiful Ride stamp set from the Occasions catalog. And, cuz I have it – I used some of the new Metallics Glitter Tape! Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all – it’s Thursday and that means it’s Happy Stamper Blog Hop Day! Whether you came from Shelagh’s blog or direct – I hope that you’ll make your way thru all the Blog Hoppin’ Ladies today!
We’re all working off a fun sketch this week – built for us by our wonderful Stampin’ Up! Uplines – Sandi MacIver and Amy Koenders. Sandi’s not joining us on the Blog Hop for a few weeks – she’s working thru some medical issues and needs to take some time to heal. Please be sending good positive thoughts her way, okay?
Here’s where we all started – I know that we’re all going to end up in very different places! 🙂
I had a background in my head – Michelle English, one of the talented ladies in our group, showed us a card she’d done using this technique and I wanted to try it. So that’s where I started. Once I had the background (read: I knew I could do it and not have it look like a muddy mess!), I started to think how to incorporate it into my card. I thought the In the Meadow stamp set images would look beautiful on the background, so that’s where I headed. Take a look-see:
Happy Huawp day, all y’all! Time is flying by – except for when it isn’t. I know that you know what I mean, cause I know that happens to everyone! It’s almost February. Hard to believe – but it’s true! And when it is…the Stamps-N-Lingers ordering special will be gone, baby, gone!
Also coming to an end is the availability of a few fun items in the Sale-A-Bration flyer. If you don’t remember what they are…check out my post from yesterday!
For today, I pulled out a new stamp set that I’ve been itching to play with. And also dreading! I’ve seen so many pretty cards – with superior art and coloring of these images – out on Pinterest…I’ve been a little afraid to throw my offering in the ring. But…I did it today! It’s the pretty new In The Meadow stamp set from the Occasions catalog. And I combined it with a sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set called What I Love. Take a look-see:
