CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Tangelo Twist

Good Morning, Stampers!

I'm so glad you joined us for the last of the 2014-2016 
In Color Collection Blog Hop!

Last but not least, we have Tangelo Twist to share
with you! Of course, I couldn't think of a better stamp set
to pair it with than the Apple of My Eye!
I kept it simple - stamping off on the oranges first.
My little Tangelo bunting is embossed and hung with the 
Basic Black Baker's Twine. 
The little punched flowers have Tangelo Twist 
centers and are filled with Crystal Effects 
for a little added dimension and shine.

Ink: Archival Basic Black, Tangelo Twist
Paper: Whisper White, Tangelo Twist

Be the Star

Good Morning, Stampers!

It's graduation time! Here is a fun card I created for any young graduate to celebrate their achievement! It features the soon-to-be retired Be the Star stamp set. I cut the card base to 3 3/4" x 11" to allow the star to hang over just a bit. The colors can easily be changed to match the school colors. Hooray@

Ink: Archival Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point

You're in My Thoughts

Good Morning, Stampers!

Today's project is a card we created in my Weekly 3/$5 card classes last week. Sympathy cards are my least favorite cards to create. Unfortunately though, we all need them from time to time. This card is simple with a little touch of elegance. Simply swap out the sentiment for a wedding, shower or birthday - it works!

Stamps: First Sight, Best Thoughts
Ink: Archival Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Blackberry Bliss

Good Morning, Stampers!
 We are sharing our love of Blackberry Bliss this
week during the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

I am a bit embarassed to say that I really don't use this
color nearly as often as I should! The truth is, the deep, dark
color scare me off a little - I have such a hard time using it!
Crazy, I know, but it's true!

Sadly, it took me this long to figure out how
much I really do LOVE this color! 

Look how rich and vibrant it is watercolored!


Simply stamped in Jet Black Stazon and colored with the
Blackberry Bliss with an Aqua Painter makes
this card quick and easy. Finished off with a top
layer of Clear Wink of Stella gives it a beautiful shimmer!
See the Baker's Twine? Run it through the ink pad and
allow to dry - instant coordinating Baker's Twine!
SU!pplies:
Stamps: Remarkable You
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Blackberry Bliss
Paper: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss
Accessories: Clear Wink of Stella, Whisper White Baker's Twine
