Clean and Simple

I was inspired by this card on Angie Juda's blog to make this clean and simple card. I love the look of the white on white; it makes for a striking card with no visual clutter. The card itself measures 4 1/4 by 4 1/4, and the centre piece, which is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, is 2 1/4 by 2 1/4. The sentiment is from Picture This, a Level 1 hostess set available through April 30 from the Occasions Mini. The centre image is from Fun & Fast Notes, one of my very first Stampin' Up! stamp sets. This set offers a great variety of images that are perfect for colouring. I used my blender pens and ink pads to do the colouring.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Fun & Fast Notes, Picture Perfect
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Soft Suede, Melon Mambo, Dusty Durango, Old Olive, Sahara Sand

Scallop Flower Thanks Card

I've been seeing beautiful 3-D flower embellishments like this everywhere lately, and finally got to give it a try today. They are so much fun! As a demonstrator, I receive a monthly magazine from Stampin' Up! full of inspiration and ideas (just one of many perks), and that's where I got the idea for this card. Remember, if you sign up as a demo during Sale-a-bration (on until March 31), you get to pick any additional stamp set for FREE!
Stamps: Medallion Background, Thank You Kindly
Paper: So Saffron, Old Olive, Rose Red
Ink: So Saffron, Rose Red
Other: Old Olive 1/4'' Grosgrain Ribbon, Sweet Pea Stitched Felt, Scallop Circle Punch, Scallop Border Punch

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you spent your day with someone you love. I was lucky to get to spend my day with MANY loved ones, as Chinese New Year happened to fall on the same day as Valentine's Day this year, so I got to see my whole immediate family, as well as my grandparents and extended family.

On to these ADORABLE little raccoons...I literally swooned when I saw this raccoon on Kimberley Morris' blog and just had to case it. She has even created a tutorial for it. Thanks, Kimberley! The body of the raccoon is a box and the head is made of a Top Note die, held shut with Velcro. Of course, I couldn't stop at just one, so I created a whole family of them and stuffed them with Valentine's treats for the little munchkins in my life.

Thanks for stopping by!

March Calendar Page

I'm still working on my calendar that I shared a while back, and I thought I'd share my March page with you. I got the idea to make this delightful little punch art leprechaun from Ann Clemmer's video here. He just puts a smile on my face. The greeting is from the ever-versatile Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Mojo Monday 124: With All My Heart

I haven't done a Mojo Monday sketch in a while and thought I'd give it a go this week. The colours I used were Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Basic Black. I used lots of new products from the Occasions Mini on this card: the Flower Punch, With All My Heart set, Polka Dot embossing folder, and the Scallop Trim Punch.

Thanks for stopping by!
