March Blooms

March has snuck up on me… time for another calendar page!

IMG_6642The image is from Blended Blooms and I colored it using lots of different colors of Blendabilities.  There’s no right or wrong way to color with them.  I love the way this turned out!

Paper Pumpkin Accordian Card

Well, they’ve done it again!  My Paper Pumpkin has come up with the cutest idea this month!!  An Accordion Fold Card!IMG_8184Isn’t this so cute?!!  Notice the yellow stamp under the H… that’s me putting my photopolymer stamp on upside down!  Sadly, this isn’t the first time I’ve done that.  I still like it!IMG_8182They even have boxes to go with the cards! (8 cards & boxes included!)

IMG_8179I added this flower stamp from the Hostess Set called Bloom With Hope then colored it using Blendabilities.

Here’s another idea to change up the Paper Pumpkin Card this month:

Celebrating Sale-a-Bration!

Today I want to show you a cute stamp set I got for FREE through Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-Bration Promotion!

I used the Big Day Stamp Set & the background paper is Stacked With Love paper. This would be good for man or woman, I think. Used the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities to color in the “cake”. You can get those FREE, by the way, with your $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!

Big News for the Hamiltons!

Cards. ‘ Tis the season for graduation cards!  This was the first one I made…trying out the new In Colors!  I really like them!  IMG_4838

But someone already requested a Baldwin HS card…so I’ve changed the colors for her.IMG_4856

Here’s the Baldwin Card.  If you’re coming to class, let me know the school colors you want to help me prep.  We aim to please!IMG_4855

The inside left has a slot for slipping in a gift card or some cash!IMG_4854

The sentiments are brand new, and you’ll see them in the new catalog (which I’ll have for my customers any day now!!)  It’s called Bravo, and has 13 cute stamps.

I’ve already shown you another card we’ll be making, but I’ll show you again:
