OOPS! Forgot the picture!

Sorry about that! See the post below for all the details! Yes, I'm new to this game....LOL!

My favorite colors are in this card!

I recently did a card swap using the Sellabration SU stamps. I used the Big Blossom stamp, and 'kissed' it to the Canvas background stamp to give it a little texture. I love hot pink, bright yellow, neon green and turquoise together. It just makes me feel happy, so I do alot of cards in these colors. The smile is from the Be Happy set, and I mounted it in the center with stampin dimentionals to raise it. I also used a stampin wheel for the background on the green. I think this makes a great spring/summer card for a pick me up or just to let someone know you are thinking of them!

It's almost that time again!

Last year my nephew and a boy from our youth group both graduated, and I made cards using the SU Tassel Time set. This year my daughter is graduating. I'll probably make her a card similar to this, along with some others. I really like this set. The cards you can make are quick and easy, but they still look like you put some effort in to them. seems like just a few months ago that I made this and it's been a year!

I used brilliant blue cardstock and ink and also bashful blue. I use mainly Stampin Up supplies and stamps for everything I do. I have a great rep--well, actually I have two great local, and one who is the list owner for an online group I'm on! Between the two of them, I don't have the time or money to buy other stamps! LOL! That's not necessarily a BAD thing...

Stamp club creation

Tonight I went to our monthly stamp club. We made this cute, simple Easter card. It looks alot better in person, because it is made with a shimmer white cardstock, so it is simple, yet elegant. The little basket is made using 3 different punches. It was really very simple, but it looks so nice and fresh!
