I really enjoyed making this card, I really do love this Stamp set from Stampin' Up!. I colored the stamp with my Tombo markers then stamped, I like the watercolor effect.

With this note card, I stamped the image with Versamark and then colored it with PearlEx. It turned out wonderful but I need to find something to spray over it to seal it and that will not warp the paper. As I was putting this in its envelope I stuck my thumb right in the middle of the butterfly. It did not do much damage but over time it would.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper – DCWV – Luxury Stack, Close to my Heart – Butterfly Wings, PearlEx

A new week :), I made a couple of little note cards that were approximately 3in square. This first one was unfortunately a sympathy card for a friend who lost her cat Ceasar around the same time that we lost Vogue.

I naturally forgot to take a picture so I had her snap off something quick for me. I was unable to brighten the image though.

The little paw print is quite small, about the size of a dime the stamp is from a Inkadinkado clear stamp collection that I got a Costco forever in a scrapbook kit ago but fit this little card perfectly.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-DCWV-Luxury Stack, Inkadinkado-paw print, Metallic Medley embossing powder.

August was my month to spend for my workshops.. groan. I know I will be paying for another few months, was it worth it? You betcha.

I could not wait to play with my new stuff so I tried my tombo markers on this stamp. I felt the need to fill in space with these little dragonflies, I am still contemplating that choice.

Supplies: Cream and burgundy cardstock, Designer paper – DCWV The Far East Stack, Stampin’ Up! – Asian Artistry, Stampendous – Dragon Fly, Recollections Gemstone Brads, misc burgundy ribbon.

I hate that when I get up in the morning now it is getting darker, the sun is still shining during the day but I am already starting to morn the loss of summers long days.

So I am taking a break from workshops this month, so I will have to get creative on my own so I have something to post. I have be really drawn (well when am I not) to natural colors, this time though it is browns and tans I guess they seem to inspire me the most.

My husband send me to a blog of a lady who had been to this store, she had posted picture of how hidden the entrance almost was to walk into an amazing space with 15000 stamps. Want to drool a little? Be patient the site loads a little slow due to Vegas Glitz. If you want to skip the store and just look at some of the pictures of the stock check out the blog I am promised that when we next go to visit Vegas I get a run to look at stamps.... big mistake.. I asked if we were bring extra luggage :)

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer paper –Hot of the Press Wedding and Romance, Inkadinkado – Birthday wishes, Making memories - Antique Copper Brad, Hot off the Press – Chocolate flowers, Sizzix - Scribbles Swirls.

Have a great day.
