This card is so simple, and easy. I used the great friends stamp set. I took a scrap piece of card stock and cut out my square, and used it for a templet.Then I inked up a sponge, off stamped it and then used it to "outline" my square. Leaving the templet in place, I used the great friends stamps and stamped the vine, and used several "generations" .. ( by stamping over and over again with out re inking ) Then I took the butterfly stamp and stamped it "full strength".
On some of my other cards using this technique.. I stamped the butterfly after I took off the templet, and it looked like the butterfly was flying out the picture! My scanner did not do a good job of scanning this card... so you really can't see it true beauty!

This is more of my favorite cottage wall dsp, this time featuring the Ronald McDonald set. This set is found on the last page of the current catalog. Very Thankful. For every set sold, Stampin Up donates $2.00 to the Ronald McDonald house Charities. I think this is one of my favorite sets for Ronald McDonald so far. At first I didn't like the peacock, and I thought I would never use it.. but I am finding I just him. He is fresh and different. The ribbon is the in color ribbon, polka dot side down. It really brings out the raspberry in the dsp!
Thanks for looking!

This is the last of our window sheet cards. This is definitly my fav.. designed by side line Angie Cleveland. She is so talented. I love the simple yet lines.. and of course Raspberry in color is wonderful. I like how the polka dots on the ribbon and the polka dots on the window sheets co ordinated very nicely. Thank you for sharing Angie!

I have been wanting to do a shaker card for a long time... well when a friend got her grandchild before the shower.. ( tiny little premie girl) I knew exctly what I wanted to do! Tea Party paper and pretty in pink meets window sheets and glass beads... there was a lot of measuring and "fussing" to this card, so I will only make them for the "extra special" people in my life!

more window sheets

This is another window sheet card that we will be making in our window sheet class! The flowers are white foam cut out with my big shot and small flower die. The bee and Thankyou are stamped with white craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. This card was fun to make and you could easily change the card just by changing the colors!

Playing with my animals!

Hi Everyone! I did not evaporate off the face of the earth! Life happens!
I finally had time to stamp for me. I have the greatest hubby on earth !!!! He semi fixed dinner, and I brought home salads, & paper plates are great. I was able to take a nice long bath and then go into my craft room to "play" I used my new in color, crushed curry.. old olive and chocolate chip. Crushed Curry is fast becoming one of my favs... This card was really quite simple and easy to do! The happy Birthday is a tad crooked... I should have used my stamp-a-magic, and it would have been much better.
