#Stamptember Sneak Peak

Hello everyone! I was one of the lucky #Stamptember winners from Simon Says Stamp on their Facebook page. I just got my stamp set in the mail yesterday and so had to quickly make a couple of sneak peaks before they go on sale tomorrow. Hope you like the sneak peak. I will post the full cards in the next day or so! Can you tell what kind of stamp set I got?? :)

Thank you Simon Says Stamp and Heidi for your amazing generosity! Looks like this will be a huge release! Sooooooo excited for tomorrow! Woohoo!!!!!!

Until the release . . . . stampingly yours,

Popping in to say . . .

Hello blogland it is my son's birthday today. Happy Birthday Adam!!! Can't believe you are 14 today!! Hope you have a fabulous day sweetie and can't wait to pop on over to the theatre to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with you and the rest of the crew. Here is the birthday card I made for you to go with the movie theme. I had to have some of the popcorn falling out of the bucket, because I don't know about you, but I can't seem to have popcorn without some hitting the ground before I get to my seat . . . LOL!

I have been waiting awhile to use some of the supplies on this card - especially the cute popcorn items from Stamps of Life! Banner die is MFT, numbers are Lawn Fawn, patterned paper is Lawn Fawn and Avery Elle and the tiny inside greeting is Simon Says Stamp.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Clear It Out Challenge - anything goes

Thanks for stopping in - I am off to the movies,

Stretch Your Stamps 2 Day #1

Well so far this class has been amazing as is typical for Online Card Classes (OCC). I have loved all the techniques so far, but decided to do the homework for the one that Kristina Werner taught. The fact that I got two cards out of the deal was awesome. I didn't have the same background stamp as she did, but for this class I am determined to work with what I have. Watercoloring for me is still relatively new, however, with the emboss resist to help, I have to admit I am pleased with the outcome. My background stamp is a gingham stamp from Impression Obsession. For the card design, I stuck pretty close to Kristina's sample, but of course added my own twist. I love the glossy accents on the big you!! Other stamps are from Simon Says as well as the big you die. The heart dies are from Lawn Fawn.

Thanks for stopping in,

Still loving this flower die!

Hi there,

I am still loving this flower die. It is called Tilth Flower by Memory Box. Absolutely one of my favourites!!! I made two different cards today. One is very similar to a card I did on another post, but this time the flowers (on both cards) are done using the inlaid die cut method. On the second card, I also attempted some copic airbrushing for my background. I have to say I am quite pleased with the results. On that card I added some wink of stella to my airbrushed flower. I think it turned out so pretty!

I would like to enter my cards in the following challenges:
