Hello Darling Thank You Card

Well Hello Darlings, It has been awhile that I have posted anything but I have been stamping off and on. I got the retired SU list so had the urge to stamp which I need to do as my sister ordered some cards from me again. I thought I would use some of my retiring card stock. This is the Hello Darling stamp set and Lots Of Thanks stamp set I embossed it in white and then used my Sponge Daubers to color with Pear Pizzazz, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Strawberry Slush! 

If you need a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I can sure refer you to one of my best buddies. Just leave me a comment. Till the next time, stamping hugs to all. Bev

Thinking of You Card

Here is s card I stamped today after getting some new things. This is using a contraband set (My SU friend) said. Ha ha! I got it off Ebay. It is the Build a Bouquet stamp set. I have a new friend that helps finishing new houses so I used the wood grain stamp set to match the wood grain in the set. The colors of card stock is Crisp Cantaloupe, Retired Naturals Ivory and inks were Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral. Used the Lil Inker's Stitched Circle Framelits. I just fussy cut out the flowers and the leaves. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Great Birthday Card for and Older Male

Oh my gosh, I had a BFF Bonnie Stanley visit me from Minnesota for a couple of days last week. We were both SU demonstrators at one time but when life got in our way we both quit. But, we still have the love of stamping. I was trying to use up a bunch of old DSP from SU and I came across this lovely piece that I thought would look great for a male card. I used Basic Gray, Whisper White and Calypso Coral Card Stock. I stamped a polka dot circle with the Gumball Green Ink. I know that was a photopolymer stamp and I think it was in a Paper Pumpkin kit but can't recall what one. The Calypso Coral card stock was die cut from the Project Life Cards  & Labels Framelit set. Then I added some gray Candy Dots from the Neutrals group. We stamped so many cards last week I can't tell you what birthday set that greeting was from. Sorry about the no details. LOL!  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

A Great Male Birthday card

Hello again. I am here with another card I made with the the Flower Pot DSP.  My card base is Lost Lagoon and I die cut a circle with a piece of retired Confetti Natural CS and a framelit  from Lil Inker's and then textured it with the On Point EF.  I used the Project Life Framelits for the tag and the stamps are once again Simon Says. I just stapled to tag to the circle. I sponged around the circle also with Lost Lagoon ink. Very very easy. Have a great toasty warm night. The wind is howling here in Iowa.  I hope to stay warm. Happy Stamping!

Back with a Happy Birthday Card

Well, hello everyone in blogger land. It has been months since I have posted anything. It isn't that I haven't been stamping, I just haven't posted anything for a very long time. I decided since it was winter time I would take some time and post some cards. I decided to take this packet of Flower Pot DSP and just make all kinds of cards with it so here is one of them with several more to come. I used this darling image on Garden Green Cardstock. I also used Blushing Bride with the Stitched Circle Framelit and textured that with the Lovely Lace EF. The tag is die cut from the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits. The Circle and the Stitched Butterflys are all Little inkers and the stamps are from a Simon Says stamp set.  

So there you have it. I hope you are getting some stamping done with these wicked cold days we are having. Have a great day now. Hugs, Bev

Yes, a challenge card

What has gotten into me, my gosh all this stamping going on. LOL! I need a life I guess. Actually I have about 7 or 8 birthdays between now and the end of July. I needed to stamp some birthday cards so I saw this easy sketch design for Freshly Made Sketches and thought I could stamp some cards now that my stamps are organized and put away. It sure helps to find things. LOL! I can see what I have. I know the DSP is This and That Epic Day I think and the stamp sets are Amazing Birthday and Betsy's Blossoms which that one may be discontinued but I love it.  Now that I am not selling SU! I can use what I want. My card stock is all Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. I found a Daffodil Delight button to put in the center of the flower and to match the design for the challenge. I also used this wonderful Banner Framelits that make life so easy for making a tag. LOVE them!

Everyday Greetings Cards

Good Sunday morning to you all. Have you ever gone into your stamp room and intended to stamp some cards and then get there and do something totally different. LOL! Attention Deficit is my friend, let me tell you. I am so proud of myself as I saw a SU demo post a card on Facebook and it totally got me in the mood to go stamp. I walk downstairs to where I have my stamping room and it was a mess. So what did I do yesterday, I cleaned and organized my stamp room shelves and went all through my stamps to put them in alphabetical order and moved the holiday stamps and alphabet stamps to another shelf unit. Then I pulled out stamps I figured I could get rid of and put them in a box to take to consignment. I thought okay my next mission is to use up these kits I have bought to make the cards so I started with The Everyday Greetings and here are all the cards I made with that kit. Now I have used some other new sets and old sets to use of the cards for the need I had. Now it is move on to the Paper Pumpkin kits. If you have any questions just comment and I will try to answer your questions.  So glad to get tons of cards done for my stamping needs and also going to send some off to my sister for a surprise as she always orders from me.  
Have a great day and happy stamping to you!   Hugs, Bev
