Sheltering Tree



Hello Ladies! I've been gone way too long! I've been busy with work and kids. My son graduated college last May, and my daughter is a junior in college. I'm now teaching 4th grade girls! I love it, but girls can get a little catty sometimes LOL! I haven't really stamped in a long time. I'm on my "February Break" from school so I have a little time to play with my new sets. I purchased this new stamp set "Sheltering Trees" from Stampin' Up! and I saw this technique and just had to try it. I love this color combo. Hopefully I won't be gone so long next time.  Happy Stamping!
Supplies: Sheltering Trees ss; Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, & Watercolor cs; Elegant Eggplant & Marina Mist reinkers; Stazon Ink; Rhinestones

Birthday Greetings

Outside

 Inside
Hello Ladies. I love love love this stamp set! I used my Deco Labels and cut out the middle from the front of the card. Then I made a frame out of Marina Mist card stock, then I sponged around a Deco Label cutout with Marina Mist and Crumbcake ink. I embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder (which is becoming my fav!). I added some polka dot ribbon to the front and stamped the greeting on the inside. Have a great day and happy stamping!!

Wetlands Birthday

Hi Ladies! I've been so busy (and sick), that I haven't posted in a while. School is off to a good start. I like my new school and my new class. I'm teaching a new grade level this year, so learning a new curriculum is VERY time consuming. Well, I got some new goodies yesterday and I sat down today to make this cute little card. I wanted some sets that were more masculine and I thought this one was perfect. Have a great day and happy stamping!!
Supplies: Wetlands & Woodgrain ss; Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, & Old Olive cs & ink; Ovals Framelits; Modern Label & Word Window punches; Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon
