Happy New Year!!

Relaxing in the Oasis


Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Kraft--Certainly Fun and Certainly Keeping It Simple!!

Here is my submission for this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge at http://www.palspaperarts.com/ The challenge is to use Garden Green, Certainly Celery, and Kraft colors. I made a couple of these as my card stash is dwindling and I love giving stacks of cards just tied up with a pretty ribbon for thank you gifts. They are always appreciated and usually re-used or are "keepers"!

Supplies are:
Paper: Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Kraft CS
Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Ink: Garden Green Classic, Garden Green Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Linen Thread, Pewter Brad

Happy Stamping!

Wedding Card--TOTALLY CASEd!

I found this lovely card and template on the Stampin' Addicts site! There are lots of creative stampers in that group! I needed a card for an upcoming wedding but I made 3 so that I could have a couple for future use. I loved using the scrumptious Bride and Groom DSP's for the gown and tux. Other supplies:

Ink: Basic Black, VersaMark

Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White CS

Accessories: Whisper White Satin Ribbon, gold embossing powder, adhesive-backed pearl and rhinestones

Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Well-Scripted.


Is It Spring Yet?????

March Greetings!!!

It's been a long winter, hasn't it?? And even though we're in sunny Florida, the cold temperatures and biting winds have made this winter verrrrry long and has left us hoping for an early spring!!

It's time for bright spring colors and the light-heartedness of the earth's re-bloom and the exhilaration of balmy breezes! I'm looking forward to spring workshops, open house dates and due to popular demand, the advent of our new Tuesday evening stamp club. Details will be coming very soon!!

Shhhhhhhhhhhh--I've just downloaded the NEW SUMMER MINI CATALOG and it is spectacular, with absolutely drop-dead gorgeous stamp sets, in both wood-mounted and clear mounts, cool new products (think triple wheels and triple-color ink cartridges--I've missed those! Spritz colors, new punches!) We'll start getting to use and order these products on April 1!!!!
In the meantime, don't forget to take advantage of the great savings of Sale-A-Bration! There are just a few weeks left to take advantage of some sweeeet deals!!
Above, you see a few of my spring creations! I don't have an Easter egg set but by using my scallop circle punch and large circle punch, I was able to create a cute fluffy chick and Easter egg. The DSP is Kaleidescope, a beautiful set of double-sided papers that coordinates with SIX SU colors. The stamps are from All Holidays (Idea Book), Vintage Vogue (Occasions Mini) and Whimsical Words, one of the SAB sets.
