Fresh Vintage for TSOT 50

Time for some more Sale-a-bration product!!!!  I'm so excited that it's finally here...I love getting FREE stuff (if you haven't heard about Sale-a-bration, be sure to check out my Stampin' Up website, http://lauragardiner.stampinup.net).  For tonight's post, I consulted the Try Stampin' On Tuesday sketch for this week.  Here's what I came up with using, almost exclusively, Sale-a-bration product:



The colour scheme is quite simple: Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, and Very Vanilla with a touch of Poppy Parade.  I was drawn again this evening towards the Everyday Enchantment DSP and Fresh Vintage stamp set...both of which are in the current Sale-a-bration catalogue.  To frame the image I used the Designer Frames Textured Embossing folders (also available for free with a $60 purchase).  I stamped the image first on Very Vanilla Card Stock, ran it through the Big Shot in the rectangular frame and then hand cut it out.  The Lucky Limeade frame also had to be hand cut.


The Pool Party strip was embossed in the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Embossing Folder and then I sponged it lightly with Soft Suede ink. 

Stayed tuned for more projects using Sale-a-bration products!  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!

Yay!

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 is....my 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 busy...my husband, who is head of Music at his school, was helping to run a musical....my 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…
