Nature Walk

Ahhh, yes, it's another bird card. This set was my favorite of all the sets in the Occasions Mini, which is only good through today, so if you want this set, hop on over to my DBWS in my left side bar where it says "SHOP NOW" and order it before it's gone.

I stamped the Bird and Flowers in Early Espresso, then colored the blooms in with my Marina Mist marker. I used the Button Embosslit for the Big Shot and some matching

embroidery floss to thread the button.

The one thing that is different here is the background behind the bird, which is a Clear Stamping Block stamped onto the paper with Sahara Sand ink. This card was a partial case from another demo, and I'm sorry, but I don't remember who. It's been awhile since I made it.

Thanks for coming by today. I am off this afternoon and tomorrow to learn how to use my brayer with the amazing Michelle Zindorf. I will be back on Monday to hopefully show you some of the things she taught us. Have a great weekend.

Valentine Defined

Hi and Happy Friday! Today I would love to share a card I made while I was MIA from my blog. It uses the set Valentine Defined in the Occasions Mini Catalog. This set is

only available through April 30, so if you love it, get it while you still can.

You all know how much I love birds, so needless to say, this was one of my first must have sets from the Occasions Mini catalog.

Colors are Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, and Whisper White. I used the Dotted Swiss Embossing folder, and the Big Shot, plus the Scallop Oval, Large Oval and Full Heart Punches.

thanks for stopping in today, see you soon.

Another Orlando Regional Swap

This very pretty card was made by my friend Amy for the

Orlando Regionals last month. I loved the colors and the simplicity of it.

The little library clip is just adorable, isn't it? I have some and have been hoarding them, guess I'm gonna have to break them out and use them soon.

Thanks for stopping in today. See u soon.

Tiny Tea or Coffee Cup

Happy Wednesday! Here we are again! I am slowly getting

back to posting. So glad you have all been patient with me.

This is yet another one of my Orlando Regionals swaps. It

has a removable magnetic bookmark, however the card isn't

naked underneath, when you remove your little gift. I decorated the card exactly the same. Something about naked cards that bothers me, lol.

Hope you have enjoyed today's post. thanks for stopping by.

Sew Cute

Well, the sewing rage is here, and even though I can sew worth a darn, pun intended, lol, I love

this trend in papercrafting. Stampin' Up has stepped up to the plate, as they always do, with some very nice stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, Punches, and even Fabric.

This little sewing kit was one my friends and I made at a workshop recently. I thought it turned

out really adorable.

what do you think?

I apologize for the blurry image. I think you can still see how cute this is.

thanks for dropping by today, have a great day.

Hi Rockers! Hi Stamping Friends!

VC Rocks! is open! Welcome Back, Rockers! I am back, also. So sorry about the long hiatus, but so many things were happening, I had to give something up and it was, unfortunately, my blog. Hopefully I will be able to keep it up again. I will try to post at least 4 times a week, so bear with me as I restart on this blogging journey. So, for today I will share a card I made for my swaps at the Orlando Regionals. Lookie: I used Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Old Olive and Whisper White, some Brights Buttons, Pumpkin Pie Ribbon, The Cupcake Punch and Stamp Set and Curly Cute for the Sentiment. I also used the Swiss Dot Embossing Folder and my Big Shot. It went pretty fast in the swapping, so I guess it was a hit, lol. thanks for stopping by.
