Everyday Enchantment for SSC 239

I really liked the sketch that the ladies over at Stamping 411 put out this week.  Be sure to head over there and see what the design team and others have come up with.

I waffled back and forth trying to decide what to do for it and finally decided to go with a monochromatic look.  I wouldn't really say it's my "style" but I'm happy with the result.  What do you think?

Everyday Enchantment Thanks for SSC 239
 The colour scheme is Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla.  I used, again, almost exclusively Sale-a-bration product with the exception of the scallop punch, pearls and sentiment. 

It's actually a relatively simple card...the bow took me the longest to make it look right.  To learn how to make a bow like this head over to Stamping 411 and look through the tutorials along the side bar....very helpful!

Here are all the details:

Stamp Sets:  Fresh Vintage (SAB 2012), Thank You Kindly

Inks and Paper:  Everyday Enchantment DSP (SAB 2012), Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla

Accessories and Embellishments:  Designer Frames Textured Embossing Folders (SAB 2012), 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, Basic Pearls, Calypso Coral organza ribbon (SAB 2012).

Happy Stamping!

Day 10: That's shiny ;)

So, I got side-tracked off my Twelve Days of Christmas Cards postings.   I got distracted on Friday by taking one kid to the doctor because of an endless cough and a little bout of stomach flu.  No worries, I'd have the weekend to catch up, right?

I was SO excited to have a weekend with "nothing" going on.  No parties, no places to go, no big errands to run.  I had a breakfast date with my son and then my lovely father-in-law arrived.  He not only brought us winter tires and put them on the car (THANK YOU, THANK YOU!), he took the kids away for a few hours!


That's shiny!

Okay, so put aside stamping for a bit...let's go Christmas shopping for the kids and out for lunch.  It was great, we went to our favourite Indian place, then across the street to our favourite toy store and topped it off with a yummy holiday drink before heading home.

I fully planned on capping off my wonderful day by spending the late afternoon and evening stamping and watching a movie …

CAS Christmas

Here it first Christmas card of the year!  I'm really liking Stampin' Up's new Winter Frost Speciality DSP.  I figure that I can use some of it for Christmas cards and whatever is left will be great for winter birthday, thank you and other cards.  Gotta love versatility!

I used the  CAS -Colours and Sketches Challenge #42 sketch for this card.  I really like the simplicity of the clean lines in this sketch. 

Here's what I did with it:

Love, LOVE, LOVE, Island Indigo and Pool Party together!  I'm so happy that Stampin' Up kept those two colours and used them in this DSP.  So great! I used one of my favourite, easy techniques -- "thumping" -- to create the look on the ornament.  The "Ornament Keepsakes" stamp set is still available by the way.  Here is a close up of the ornament:
While you can't see it here, I also stamped it again using the Illuminate ink to give it a bit of a shimmer.  To finish it off I used a little bit of S…

Thanks Grandma!

So here I am again apologizing for my absence from the blogging world.   And yet again I'll say something about "trying to do better"....especially for those of you, my faithful friends, who have expressed that you miss stamping with me and seeing what I'm up to.   I will do my best.

I have been absent because, honestly, I haven't been stamping!   The winter and spring were crazy husband, who is head of Music at his school, was helping to run a kids were busy....I was busy....

Excuses.  I know!

In any case, after months away from stamping I started again this week.  A lot of the stuff I've made, I've already passed along to others before taking a picture.  But I captured today's card before it gets put in the mail.

My daughter and I just spent a lovely day with my mother-in-law while the boys were away doing their thing.  A neighbour of ours was selling a little pink bike and, very generously, "grandma" bought the bik…
