Simple Hexagon

Hello Ladies. Today's card is a simple card made from Six Sided Sampler set. I wanted to try different color combos with colors I don't usually use together. We're winding down to our last week of summer school. Then hopefully I'll have some sort of break from work. Have a great day & happy stamping!

Happy Birthday

Hi Ladies. I just love this cat!! As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. This is from a new set I got called Giggle Greetings. I wanted to add some texture, so I used the two embossing folders. I used watercolor paper and colored the cat with Crushed Curry ink.

Hello Sweet Friend

Hello Ladies. Today's card is from a new set I got called Six Sided Sampler. I thought I wouldn't like this set as much as I do. I got the set because of the matching punch that came with the bundle, but I'm so glad I got it. I just love these colors together. Have a great day & happy stamping!

Thinking of You

Hello Ladies. Today's card is a quick and simple card I made from some of my new stuff. I love this embossing folder. I think you don't need much else on a card when you use this folder. I added a sentiment and these cute butterflies and some pearls. Have a great day & happy stamping!

Happy Birthday to You!

Hi Ladies. Today's card was inspired from a card here from Jessica Sluyter. I love the way it turned out. I've had this set, Label Love & the Artisan punch for a while but never used it 'til now.
It's going to be a hot one here in Buffalo, but I'm not going to complain. I'm just going to try and stay cool. Have a great day & happy stamping!

Happy Birthday

Hello Ladies. Today's card I used the Whitewash technique on. I learned how to do it at a class I went to last month. That's one of the reasons I bought this stamp set. I like the way it turned out after adding a few "extras" on it.
 I'm teaching summer school this year to 3rd graders. I forgot how exhausting younger students are! I teach 6th grade during the regular year, and OMG, what a difference. I need a nap!
Have a great day & happy stamping!

Make a Wish

Hello Ladies. Today's post is from another set I just got called Secret Garden. I didn't want to get another flower stamp set, but I saw so many fabulous cards made with it that I just had to have it. I wanted to make a bright & colorful card, and this is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy your holiday. Have a great day & happy stamping!

Thank You

Hello Ladies. Today's post is from another new set I got call Regarding Dahlias. I love the big flower. I used water color paper to color the flower using Marina Mist and Midnight Muse ink. I thought it needed a little more so I added some glitter to the darker spots on the flower. It looked plain so I added the "thank you" banner to the front. I really like the way it turned out. Have a great day & happy stamping!

By the Tide Gel Card

Hello Ladies. The post today is of a card I made using hair gel. I love the way it looks like water. I saw it done on a video done by France Martin (frenchiestamps.com),and I just had to try it! The bottom card is from a class I went to. It was designed by my upline Karen Long. I love the colors and the sparkles on it. I wanted to use the same colors and design in my gel card. Have a great day & happy stamping!!
