Pears, Strawberries or Lemons? LOVE

I am in LOVE with this stamp set from the new 2016 Stampin' Up! catalog.  I love the new Fruit Stand Suite - Fresh Fruit & Flowers.  I created the same set of cards yesterday with Peaches.  Today is the Pears, a few strawberries and Lemons.  I am always in need of thank you gifts or cards.  I have a treat bag with a set of 5 blank cards and topped off with a thank you tag.  I loved making this so much, Next I am creating something with the Strawberry stamp. 

I love how Stampin' Up1 makes it so easy to coordinate by creating designer specialty paper to go with this stamp set.  It made my choices of colors easy.   Yet again, another reason that I love Stampin' Up!

Just Peachy!

If you haven't looked at page 148 and 149 in the new 2016 Stampin' Up! catalog, then you are in for a treat!  I love the new Fruit Stand Suite - Fresh Fruit & Flowers.  I am always in need of thank you gifts or cards.  I decided to make a set of 5 blank cards and gift them in a treat bag with a thank you tag.  I loved making this so much, I am going to make 3 more sets, One Strawberry, One Flower and One Pear.  I may even squeeze a little lemon in there!     And Oh How Cute They Are.  Especially when you pair them with the Fruit Stand Designer Series paper that is shown on page 173 of the catalog. This stamp set would make a great class, don't you think!  If you would like more information on the products used, send me an email and I will send you the list.

Marquee Messages

I am Diggin' this Retro Stamp set Marquee Messages. The retro look of this set is so cool.  Doesn't this just scream "Throw Back". The color combinations helps so much to make this stamp set unique.  Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, Melon Mambo and Basic Black.  
Our CEO of Stampin' Up!, Sara Douglass, demonstrated this stamp set at the Stampin' Up! On Stage Convention. We even received this stamp set for free during Prize Patrol at convention. 
The Marquee is stamped in basic black archival ink onto  Whisper white cardstock and then cut out. Then it is stamped again onto Melon Mambo and then again on Tempting Turquoise and cut out the pieces then attached back onto the whisper white stamped image.  The colors of the sign are done with an aqua painter dipped in the lid of an inkpad. Soft sky, tempting turquoise and melon mambo inks were used to color the signage.
The splatter background was done with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in tempting turquoise ink onto soft sky cardstock.


Just Look at the close up. The duplication of the BIG White bulbs on Retro Signs was done with Stampin' Up! pearl jewels and they worked out perfectly.
You'll notice that the words and those little starlight things are glossy and shiny... and you are probably wondering how they got that way, since Stampin' Up! has retired the crystal effects... turns out that the Fine Tip Glue Pen works just like crystal effects! It even dries quick AND, it goes on so nicely because of the "fine tip." Fun Fun Fun How about that?  Looks FAB!

My Whole World

Family.... Webster's Definition is simply a group of people who are related to one another.  To me, family is every thing.  Life is fleeting and it is for this very reason that my family is my WORLD.

Recently, my two young adults and I, went on a road trip from Arkansas to Florida.  Florida is a destination that we have come to in the past and is a very familiar place for us.  Our week was full of fun, shopping, beaching and good food.


My two young adults!  Abbey is 24 and Will is 17.  I am so Blessed.



This is my family!  Thank you Lord for my family.
 For the past 3 family vacations, my son's best friend, Joe has come with us.  Such a wonderful addition to our family vacations.

My Son Will and his best friend, Joe

Thank you for letting me brag a bit.  
Did I mention that I was Blessed?



Baby Bear

This is such an adorable stamp set.  "Baby Bear" is the name of this set and it is so cute. 
Its also a "3 step" stamp set. That means that the stamp is "layered." It is designed this way to add color, detail and dimension. The layers are stamped on top of each other starting with the lightest color of ink and ending with the darkest color.
Bear is stamped in Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe and Chocolate Chip ink colors.  There are 3 stamps that make up the bear.  The stamped image is layered on top of each other in the order listed. The bow was stamped in Pink Pirouette and Flirty Flamingo.

To make this cute card,  use Pink Pirouette and Flirty Flamingo as well as Very Vanilla cardstocks. The ribbon is the new Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon.  The Ruched Ribbon is new this year and is quickly becoming my favorite.

A small "enamel shapes" heart in Pink Pirouette, adds that special touch.  The "Festive" emboss folder gives this card a soft sweet background design. The "Sweet and Sassy" hearts framelits to die cut the Flirty Flamingo heart.
