Spring Flowers

springflowerbasket

Hello Folks. . . Hope you are having a wonderful day.  The weather here in St. Charles has been just perfect.  Spring here can be a little loopy at times, so I'm enjoying it while I can.  Today I have a pretty card to share using a little old and a little new.  The basket is from a retired set from some time ago and the new is our Pictogram Punches set with is matching punch  So cute.  My colors were inspired from a card I found on Chat's site "Me My Stamps and I".  The card base is Whisper White, matted with a Melon Mambo and matted again with a piece of designer paper from my stash.  Next is one of our paper doilies, so girlie.  My focal point was stamped on a piece of Solor White card stock inked with Memento Black Ink. This is a good piece of cardstock for when you are using your Copic Markers.  For my basket I used some Copic earth tones (that's the E seires of colors) and for my flowers I used our Classic Stamping Ink Pads in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Coastal Cabana.  My stems are from another retired set called "Happy Together".  Added a little bling for my flower centers.  The sentiment is not SU it is a Verve set.  The ribbon also is retired.  

springflowerbsket1I'm using a lot of my retired stamp sets right now.  Kind of in limbo waiting for the new annual catalog to be released.  Thanks for stopping by,  If you are in need of any supplies please shop in my On Line web store.  The link can be found below.  If you have any questions or need any help please drop me a line or two.  Thanks again for coming by and have a wonderful Stampin' Day.

Getting My Flower Fix

flowerfixHello Folks. . .  Happy Monday.  Hope you all are not too stuffed from all the great food yesterday.

Now that Sale a Bration has ended I'm moving forward.  Stampin' Up will soon be closing out this year and beginning another.  Retired stamps and accessories will be announced at the end of this month.  You will have the month of May to check your wish list.  I'm really looking forward to the start of our new year around June 1st.  Can't wait to see what Stampin' Up has come up with.  I'm a whimsy, flowery type of girl and I'm looking forward to some new stamps.  But today I turned to a couple of old Paper Trey and Verve stamp sets.  This one is a cutie.  I love stamping so I enjoy making my own designer paper.  Isn't it what it is all about after all.

My accessories are Stampin' Ups.  I used our Decorative Label punch for my sentiment and added a few jewels.  My color selection will me greatly missed.  It is our 2013-2015 In Colors (Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush).  If you want any of these, I suggest you place your orders soon.  These colors are beautiful and will sell out fast.  Check the Clearance Rack.  I thought I saw some of them over there.  Don't forget your ink refills so you will have these colors in your stash for some time to come. flowerfix1 

I appreciate all you do, so please place your orders at my OnLine Web store.  Click on the link below to place your orders.  I will publish the retired and accessory list as soon as I'm allowed to.  Thanks for stopping by.  My surgery is coming real fast.  Can't wait to get past these issues and get back to normal.  Take care – Toodles

For My Friends

makeastatementverve

Hello Folks. . .  How are you today?  I'm sitting here playing with my card and enjoying the warm weather that we have had the last couple of days.  The grass is turning green, tulips are sprouting, and the yard is ready for the Easter Bunny.  

Today I have a card to share that is not Stampin' Up.  This card has been totally cased from Amy at White House Stamping using Verve stamps.  I'm a flowery girl and I love Julie's whimsical style.  I hope you do to.  The set is called "Making A Statement" and has matching dies.  Love it !!!!!  My card base is Whisper White, matted with Blackberry Bliss and matted again with a piece of Wistera Wonder designer paper.  Next layer is Blackberry Bliss and a piece of designer paper.  This came from my stash, not sure what brand or name it is.  The paper doily adds a girly girl touch.  The flowers are colored with my Copics, but you certainly could use Stampin Ups "Blendabilities".  It's so sad that they have had to withdraw these markers from the market. If you have them, use them until they dry up.  Hopefully it will not be to to long unitl they come up with a manufacturer and can offer these unique markers again. 

Hopefully over the next couple of weeks I will be getting my bladder issues addressed.  Can't wait to get back to normal. I miss my walking.  Thank you for checking in with me, I know it has been a while since I have posted anything.  Looking forward to Stampin' Ups new catalog.  I sure want to see more whimsy floral stamps. I hope they don't disappoint.  Take care, if you need supplies please check out my link at the bottom of this post.  All orders are greatly appreciated, That's what keeps me going.  Have a wonderful blessed day.
