Back with some stamping inspiration….

I’m sorry it’s been so long.  I’ve been very busy,  making some great projects but just too busy to post, or too exhausted.  So, I’ll try to make up for it!
….but first, a picture or 2.
I found Uncle Devin holding Kale….he'd been refusing, afraid he would ‘break’.   I had to get a picture.




Tyler had Kale last weekend so we got lots of hug time.  Briana even took some photos…she’s very good at that.  Here’s her pic of him 2 weeks ago

Now to stamping:  I just designed this card last week for a workshop I was doing for one of my new recruits.  A lot of friends/customers from church were coming so I wanted to do something they hadn’t seen.

This is an easel card and I’ve used the Hostess only set: Four Seasons, along with the new Designer Paper, Floral District.
Here are some tips: Pool Party Cardstock cut 4 1/4 X 11, then scored at 5 1/2.  The fold was then put up to the corner of Simply scored, on the diagonal plate, I started scoring at the corner.  IMG_0336If you were to stand this card up as a tent, the score goes from the top left corner of the card down to the right side. 
Then I cut the bottom of the front flap off where the score ended.  I think it was about 1 1/8 inch. Here’s the card from another angle: 
The other colors I used (from the designer paper) are: Rich Razzleberry and Primrose Petals.  For the ribbon, I applied a piece of Sticky Strip, then used the tip of my scissors to ‘hold up the ribbon, as I pressed it down on the sticky strip…I did that the whole way across.  The pretty scalloped edging is done with the Large Scallop Edgelit 127019 and The Delicate Designs Folder #127023.
Hope you enjoy.   If you need any of these products, please contact me or Click Here to order 24/7
