Marina Waterfront

Christmas has been put away and I returned from a wonderful trip to Pasadena to watch the Tournament of Roses Parade. I received this stamp set before Christmas, but never had an opportunity to play with it. Finally, today, I was able to explore these stamps for a bit. I love being able to create mountain scenes like this.

Birthday Balloons

I found a card similar to this one on Pinterest. Unfortunately, I was unable to discover who to created it. It is such a fun, whimsical card, using the stamp with a different perspective. I knew immediately I would be using the other card as inspiration for at least one (probably more) of my own.

Stamps - Balloon Celebration (140675), Beautiful You (143637), Sheltering Tree (137163)
Ink - Daffodil Delight, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green, Stazon Jet Black

Artistically Asian Series

I made a set of ten cards which will be used by missionaries at my church. They are creating comfort blankets for dialysis patients, and I offered to make cards to send with the blankets. Of course, I included coordinating envelopes. Although I used five different stamps (two cards each), I'm only showing three. The other two stamps I used (In the Meadow and Just Believe) were silhouette stamps from retired sets.

To create the consistent masking for the box, I created a template using my Silhouette. This allowed me to make it 5-1/2" x 4-1/4 and perfectly center the cutout. I then ran packing tape around the edges so it won't wear out too quickly.

Stamps - Artistically Asian (141781)
Ink - Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Marina Mist, StazOn Jet Black

Accessories - homemade mask

Lovely Birthday Trees

It feels like it's been a long time since I've played with "Lovely As A Tree." It is one of my first stamp sets, and it's very versatile. I've used it by itself, or as a backdrop for other stamps. It can also be dressed up for any season.

For this card, I used the new Stampin' Blends to create a more autumn look.

Stamps - Lovely As A Tree (128655)
Ink- Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, StazOn Jet Black
Card Stock - Soft Suede, Whisper White
