Something for Baby in Mint Macaron

Can I let you in on something I am working on?  I decided I wanted to get back into the habit of blogging regularly and the way I am going to do this is to blog everyday in August.  Okay, it is 9 pm (my time) and I am just writing my post now!  I had almost convinced myself that it could wait until tomorrow but seriously I could not break the chain on day 3! 

Something for Baby Mint Macaron

I purchased the Something for Baby stamp set and Baby's First Framelits last year.  Honestly they have not seen much action until this month.  I have a bunch of baby cards to send and later in the month Babies is the theme for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop so you will be seeing it in action again.

Wild About Flowers Easel Card

Yes, it is true I am quite taken with the Wild About Flowers stamp set.  I have shared other cards using this set here, here and here.  Today’s card is a bit of a fail but we will talk about that in a little bit.

  Wild About Flowers easel 3

This card was supposed to be a swinging easel card.  After I finished making it I wondered why it was called a "swinging" easel card since nothing really swung.  It finally dawned on me what I did wrong.  Even though this card isn't a "swinger"  I still think it is cute.

Stay tuned I will be attempting to make a swinging easel card and this time I hope it will actually swing.

Floral Wings

Floral Wings is one of the hostess sets in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.   It is a fun Two (sometimes Three) Step stamp set.  

Floral Wings midriff card


I cut the butterfly out using the Bold Butterfly framelits and another butterfly using the Butterflies thinlits out of card stock vellum.  It is wonderful to have so many mix and match framelits, thinlits, and stamp sets.

Watercolor Wings and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit

Right about now you must be thinking that I have like 3 stamp sets.  Trust me I have LOTS more.  

Watercolor Wings & Mini Treat Bag

You might also think that I only have one package of  DSP(designer series paper) Pretty Petals  and one set of inks.  All of these things are not true.  Promise, some stamp, ink, and paper diversity will be showing up soon.

Watercolor Wings & Mini Treat Bag up

Isn't that fun?  The butterfly is flying to reveal a hidden message!  This card is winging its way to a friend who is recovering from surgery.

Wild About Flowers Re-Do

I was working on stamp club projects and decided to re-do this card to make it a little easier to prep and also to make.  

Wild About Flowers club card

The primary  difference is the cut is not at an angle and there is no window sheet in the middle.  I think of this as a bare midriff card.  

Wild About Flowers club card inside

Did a little stamping on the inside of the card.  Stamped off the ink so it would be a little lighter and easier to write over.

Christmas in July (the first try)

Every month I participate in a  blog hop called the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop.  There is a theme every month which is both a good thing( I like the challenge)and a not so good thing(it's a challenge).  This month the theme was Christmas in July.  You can go here to go on  the hop.  I had a hard time with the theme.  I made 3 cards before deciding on the one to post and really if I had more time I might have made even more! 

Crazy About You white on white Christmas

It is a monochromatic version of the card I ended up sharing on the blog hop. If you are wondering I cut 3 of the "joy"die,  glued and stacked them so it would be more visible.

Not to worry I am not going to subject you to the 2nd try, it has already been gently put out of its misery.

As much as I think the picture is so fun and full of potential, I knew I wanted to work on the sketch.

Wild About Flowers with window

I used a window sheet as the middle panel and added a sentiment to show through.
