These lists are updated as of Friday, May 1st.  To see if the items you want are still available, it's easiest to go to my online store and search for retiring products.

April Stamping Escape Projects

Here are the projects from April's Stamping Escape Class.  For April, I focused on the beautiful Painted Petals stamp set.  It makes such simple work or beautiful artwork!

This first project was an almost complete CASE (copy and share everything) from Melissa Stout.  I changed the colors to be a bit more springlike, using Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi.  

The "Thanks" pops off the card because it is cut out using the Hello You Thinlits dies after the card front is stamped.  Another "thanks" is cut from a piece of coaster board and the stamped one is then glued onto the front of the coaster board one, and then attached back onto the front of the card.  Very simple, but very complicated looking!

This next card uses one of the outgoing In-Colors, Strawberry Slush.  I'm so going to miss this color! A simple background was made using designer series paper.  A tag was punched using the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.  

The final card made, takes advantage of a textured background, made using the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Sizzix Big Shot.  The flowers and leaves are stamped off the corner of the card leaving plenty of room for the greeting.  Keeping it simple by adding a ribbon tied to one side in the same color as the flowers, makes for a simple yet elegant card.

Thanks once again for stopping by.  If you love the Painted Petals stamp set, don't miss out on purchasing it.  It's only around until June 2nd.

It's been too long!

It's been far too long since I've posted.  Truth be told, my stamp room has been neglected too.  However, here is a card I made awhile back.  It uses the stamp set Sheltering Tree. 

I absolutely love this stamp set.  It gives so many possibilities to your cards and projects.  The shape behind the tree image is from the Labels Collection Framelits Dies.  They are on the retiring list, and only available while supplies last.  At 50% off ($13.48), they won't be around long!

Thanks for stopping by.
