A little late this week, computer problems! The Sisters in Stamping theme this week is Flowers! Here is my card--

This stamp, Vivid Vases is retiring. I stamped the image with Basic Black Archival ink on So Saffron card stock and used the White Gel Pen (#105021, $4.00, retiring supplies limited) to color the daisy and the daffodil. The other flower colors were done with markers.

We will be talking about more retired sets and accessories next week, see you then!
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Punch Art Birthday Bee

Well, hello! The Sisters in Stamping are making projects with Punch Art this week. Here is my card--

I used the Petite Pairs stamp set and the Hexagon punch to make this Birthday card, it was just natural to make a little punch art Bee to go with this layout.

Last week-end I attended a crafting class at my church here in Yankton, this is what we made: 
 Is'nt it the cutest?? Laura K. taught the class and she cut all of the wood pieces out for us ahead of time. We could paint them and decorate them any way we wanted, it was too much fun-- thanks Laura!!! Anyway, all week I kept thinking about the Bee on my flower, and I used him as inspiration for today's card.
Here is a close up picture of my bee (I couldn't resist putting googly eyes on him like the ones on my card).

Thank-you for coming by today...see you next week for some special projects using the Clearance Rack.
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Sale-A-Bration for March

Hello!! Sale-A-Bration is still on at Stampin' Up! until the end of March. They just released some more free items to choose from, contact me if you want more info. Here is my card for this week--

I cased the layout from the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog (pg.13). Every time I get a new Stampin' Up! catalog I try to go through it and find interesting layouts....sometimes it takes me awhile to get to them, but it always helps when I'm feeling "designed out." I used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Flowering Fields.

I used the top part of the Heart punch to make the bumps on the sides.

I did have to trim a bit off of the ends to make them fit, but if you cut the So Saffron panel a little bit bigger you wouldn't need to do that.

Make sure you come back next week, the Sisters in Stamping are making Easter cards!

Happy Stamping, Karla c(:
