All Adorned


One of the second release Sale-a-bration stamp sets is called All Adorned (you can see the images below) and I have put together a couple cards with it below.


In each one, I also used the Doily builder thinlits and the Classic Garage designer series paper.  On the top card, there is also a piece of the Grapefruit Grove/Lovely Lipstick foil sheets (SAB 2019).


The  card base is Melon Mambo on the top card and I have used a background layer of Soft Sea Foam in the bottom one.  Both cards use the same ink colors - Melon Mambo and Basic Gray.


The sentiment on the top card is from Better Together and the bottom card uses a sentiment from the All Adorned set.

I die cut a few butterfly pieces using the Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick foil paper (SAB 2019) one day and there are a few ideas below...

February Stamp Club Projects


I suppose it is about time to show you the stamp club projects for February since the month is already over half over!  


Our first card used the Geared up Garage stamp set, coordinating thinlits called Garage Gears thinlits and the Classic Garage designer series paper.


The second card is made with the First steps stamp set and some Twinkle Twinkle designer series paper...


I made sure they had both a boy and girl card in the same layout...


Finally, the layout uses the Botanical Butterfly designer series paper (SAB 2019) and the Rectangle Stitched framelits dies.


Remember, you can join us anytime - just to visit and see what we are all about or just plain get started :)  Contact me to do so...

Part of My Story


I have a couple cards to share with you today both with the same layout and using the same stamp set called Part of My Story which is one of the free Sale-a-bration items.  


Each card also uses several patterns of the Needlepoint Nook designer series paper.
