May Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' in Hilton Head, Cardmaking Fun!!

Hi, Stampin' Friends!

This past week we traveled to Hilton Head, SC for some real down time, dining, fun playing LRC, pool time and stamping (while the guys played golf!

My friend and downline, Linda, and her downline, my SIL), Cindy, had already been busy stamping and had made so many pretty cards before I even arrived a day and a half after they hit HH.

We made these fun projects on one day.  My stampers will recognize the window box project as my contribution.  Cindy had kits ready for the stylish girl card.  I love the ease of making this glam card.  Cindy also guided us through the fun fold card using my favorite colors (Navy and White).  So pretty! (We're doing that card for my classes this week!)

Linda added the beautiful daisy card.  So many possibilities with this one.  Can't wait for some free time!!  Linda also had us also set up to heat emboss silver, gold and copper!  Wow!!  This card is a fabulously urban/industrial card that is perfect for any masculine sentiment. The deep lines of the Hexagon Embossing Folder lend so much interest, contrast and texture.  Thank you, Linda and Cindy!!

I am a Pumpkin Believer and I love getting the kits and being creative with them.  I follow SOME directions but there is no real need to do anything other than be fiercly creative.  Here are some of my creations from the Pumpkin challenge!

Sign up today HERE!  And enjoy your surprise package every month!!

Happy Stampings!!

Card Making Fun With Kind Koala and Vellum Flowers

Hello Stampers!

I hope you're having a lovely weekend!!  I am in the process of sorting and cleaning my stamp room and that will be my next task after posting my blog!

I hope you enjoy our card gallery and get some inspiration from some of our stamper! The first two cards you see are last week's projects for AGOV (Art Gallery of Viera) Stampers and TPL (Titusville Public Library) Stampers.  Such fun!  We stamped vellum with Versamark and used Whisper White embossing powder and the Flower Shop stamps to create our sparkly, transparent flowers.  (I CASED this card from one of my CentreStage swaps but, alas, there was no name included!) We then (and here's the trick) sponged the back of the Vellum with Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry ink in varying degrees of darkness to color the flowers.  We then used Clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle!  There is a list of products below.  Kind Koala (sniff) is retired but I love that stamp and will use it occasionally!!

Below is a gallery of lovely cards that I've received the past few months.  I love each one!  Thank you, stampers, for sharing and actually using your cards.  (Yes, I know that some of us are card hoarders!!)
 A sweet thank you from Trudy!
 Jane's Easter Bunny!
Ellen's sweet little lamb!

 Look at Bea's creativity!  She has moved and sent this interactive card 
announcing her new address!  Love it!

 How thoughtful!  Mike knew that I would love and apprecite
her note card.  I know this took a lot of design time!  Thank you, Mike!
 In addition to preparing 5 projects for 13-15 stampers in her monthly 
workshops, wonderful Oksana Semenska makes a beautiful little treat
for each of us.  This one features candies that she found in Europe on her 
recent trip that included CentreStage in Amsterdam!
 Sweet shamrocks made of little hearts for this
clean and pretty St. Patrick's day card.  Love it, Ellen!

I believe that I get a card for EVERY single holiday from Jane and Ellen!
Here is Jane's St. Patrick's Day card.  This is a lovely card.  I love the background even if it is 
contraband.  LOL!!!
You can find these beautiful products in my Online Store (Shop Now)
