Graduation!

Graduation time and I am on a roll............









A shaker card!  Woo Hoo!





























Love this stamp set FSJ 'Tickled Pink'




















This card came from our Bloom Box.  It started as a square card (since I'm not a fan of that size card, mostly because you have to make a envelope for it).  I made it into an A2 size card and made it a graduation card Woot! Woot!  Look at the video below  :-)




























Woot! Woot!

April Bloom Box Plus one Bonus






Is this cute or what?!!  Great for kids or Adults (Big kids) alike.  Do you see the sunburst?  I thought that was a stamp at first, but it isn't.  It is a technique you use with your ink pad.  You get all the card stock, embellishments and full size red rubber stamp.  Along with a color directions book with added techniques such as the sunburst.  You just add your ink and adhesives.  Below is a added bonus card to this months Bloom Box:

Have fun and happy stampin!

Trust The Lord - To my young prayer friend


To my young prayer friend:  I used FSJ stamp set 'Trust The Lord' (SS-0365)  Love how this card turned out!  It has sheen from the Gold Pan Pastels and a shine from the journey glaze, but is hard to capture on camera.  Below is another shot in which I tried to capture it.




You can see some of the glaze on the rays, but I still couldn't get the sheen from the Gold Pan Pastels.  Really awesome card in which I got the idea from Richard Garay.  Also the background technique was so cool - also from Richard Garay.  I used Pumpkin Bread Pan Pastel and sponged it on the entire card stock, stamped the background stamp with VersaMark and embossed.  I added a bow with our twine and ta da!! 

Happy Stampin!  :-)   Till next time


Trust in the Lord
with all your heart
and
lean not on your own understanding

Come out and play Isaiah!



Our grandson was due to arrive January 7th.  We are all so anxious to meet him.  Here is the card I made while waiting for his arrival.  He arrived January 19th weighing in at 9 pounds and 15 oz!  Big, beautiful, baby boy!  BBBB



It took me forever to design this card.....I guess I was a little picky because it is for my new yet to appear grandson.  I was really happy when I finally finished this card.  The stamp set I used is a Fun Stamper Journey retired stamp 'Moon and Back'.  Isn't that lamb so, so cute?!  Love him peeking through the windows.

Here is the inside:



I used the same stamp set for the sentiment.  From our new mini catalog I used the die from the Love Bandit die #DI-0285 for the hearts.  Actually I got the bundle #BD-0207 because I love the stamp and die....more to come soon.  So, so cute!  I also used our new Whip cream sparkle tape #AC-0258.  FUN, FUN, FUN!

Can't believe it has been so long since I last posted.  I guess the holidays really kept me busy!  I did make a lot of Christmas cards, but they are all mailed.  A little too late to post those now.  Next year?  I will have to start in August  :-)  LOL

Come on out and play Isaiah!  We love you and want to meet you!  Samuel and Benjamin are your big brothers just waiting to smooch and hug you!
