Garden Gazing through the Window

By | June 27, 2017

The Jar of Love photopolymer stamp set has an amazing 37 stamps to mix and match! When it came out in last year’s catalog I remarked that this set could keep you creating for a long time with all of those images to pick from. So, now that we have some new In Colors to… Read More »

Wish I Could Be… Under the Sea

We have several SU! colors with names and shades reminiscent of the ocean, Bermuda Bay and the new In Color Tranquil Tide being two of them.

Make New Friends, But Keep the Old…

By | May 23, 2017

To continue with the color and image theme from my last post, I’ve used a sentiment from the new Eastern Beauty photopolymer stamp set and framed it with a die cut from the coordinating Eastern Medallions Thinlits set: Like last time, I’ve cut the medallion from Bermuda Bay cardstock and paired it with a piece… Read More »

Between teaching elementary students at my day job (and catching a bad cold from said students) I am a little behind on my posts!

My husband Reggie got a couple more hand stamped cards for his birthday, from his sister Kathy and sister-in-law Mindy: I also think these two look nice together, color-wise and because they both include some shiny elements.
