Wild Butterfly

Can you believe it? I received my new stamps last Thursday and just had an opportunity to play with them today! Don''t get me wrong, I had a great weekend with family, and do not regret the delay. If anything, I was able to enjoy the anticipation.

I love using the photopolymer stamps for two-step stamping. It makes it so easy to align everything.

All Stacked Up

Yumm! It's not very often (any more) that I can handle a triple scoop ice cream cone. Let your imagination run away with what you think the flavors are.

This new stamp set (Sprinkles of Life) can make so much more than ice cream cones. With 22 stamps and coordinating punch (Tree Builder), there are lots of possibilities.

Wild Times

I might be creating this card again, with a different color combination. This combination, and probably the use of the square shape, make this look like the card should be sent to a Boy Scout or Eagle Scout, I wonder if another color combination would have the same effect?

Fly Away With Me

I haven't played with this stamp set for a while. Mostly because it's been retired for a while. However, just because it's no longer available from Stampin' Up!, doesn't mean I can't continue to use it.

I stamped the balloon baskets directly to the Whisper White card stock, then embossed it with Cloudy Day. The balloons were added with dimensionals.

Once Upon a Tide

This was a fun card to make. I used the Triple Time Stamping technique and didn't worry about the placement of the layers. Unfortunately, I made it a while back and am not sure what colors I used. The only thing I know for sure is the stamp set is By the Tide (129120).

Trees - So Lovely

This is one of those cards that started out one way, and ended up like this. I envisioned something that didn't turn out the way I anticipated. Fortunately with stamping, there can always be a plan "B", or even a plan "C". This was my "Final" plan.

Stamp - Lovely as a Tree
Card Stock - Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla
Ink - Early Espresso
Stampin' Write Markers - every green color, and some Daffodil Delight

Summer Trees

This style of adding the leafs to the trees takes a bit of time, but I'm really happy with the effect. I use two or three colors of the Stampin' Write markers and lightly tap the tip all over. The fine tip makes tiny leafs and the brush tip makes slightly larger ones.

I used Blendabilities to color the sky and grass.
Stamp - Lovely as a Tree
Card Stock - Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Ink/Stampin' Write Markers/Blendabilities - Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Soft Sky
