Good Morning. Aren't these great. I used the Mixed Bunches stamps and the Blossom punch, put thin dowels between the flowers, decorated a tin can and put flower foam in the can to hold up the flowers. I shredded paper real thin, ran it through the Crimper for the grass. I saw a picture of these somewhere, and decided my office needed a little color, so that is were these are going. Have a great day.

Good morning. I went to a baby shower over the weekend for a good friend's daughter. Her theme is turtles and her colors are greens, so I thought these colors would go good (the blue because it is a boy). I did the "Welcome Jack" with MDS. Thanks for stopping by and see ya tomorrow.

Happy Valentine's Day. These are made with the Matchbox Die, I cut the rosette 1 1/2" x 12", scored every 1/4 inch, then punched with the Lace Ribbon Border Punch (makes it look like lace). I used various retired DSP (I have soooooooo much). I hope you have a great day!!

I'm in a monthly swap group where several demonstrators such as myself swap cards, we make enough cards for the swappers plus one card to be sent to the troops. It gives us great ideas and lets us show samples of stamps we haven't purchased. I would like to share some of those cards with you.

Good Morning. I just love these colors together. I stamped 4 flowers and cut them out layering them together putting dimensionals between the layers and kind of curling the edges. Have a great day.

Good Morning. Here is a Heart Box I made for my wonderful husband. I got the tutorial from Beate Johns at Splitcoaststampers. I used the Stampin' Up Hearts Collection Framelits Dies and needed to modify the band a bit, I made my 2" x 14"; apparently Stampin' Up's Heart Dies are a bit bigger than Spillbinders Heart Dies. I really love the way it turned out. I sprayed Vanilla Shimmer on the roses and they really look beautiful, not sure you can see them shimmer in the picture. I used the cardboard that comes with the designer paper, worked out really great, but do run in the Big Shot several times back and forth to make sure all the corners are cut. I made the roses with Die-namics Mini Rolled Rose dies from My Favorite Things (non Stampin' Up). Have a wonderful day!

Paper ~ Flirtatious DSP, Subtles Collection DSP; Accessories ~ Pearls, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Dies, Vanilla Shimmer
