Beware the Ides of March

Hello everyone. I know it has been a while. I am working on something I cannot show anyone so it does not leave a lot of time for blogging. But today I visited my pretend stamping friend Lauren and I HAD to do her sketch. She has a tutorial on how to make these sweet little umbrella's. I have a baby due in the early fall (well not me my best friend) and a shower to throw so I think this umbrella thing is adorable.

I made mine with pretty in pink and soft sky paper. The dp is from Sassafrass Lass and perfect if you do not know the sex of the baby. The stamp set is from MFT, Shower Time. I colored with copics and used Adirondack Pitch Black Ink. I used some pink gingham ribbon from SU as the handle for the umbrella and a dew drop at the top. Dazzling Diamonds and my quickie glue pen made the glitter application a breeze.

Thanx for looking and let me know what you think. Have a stamp happy day!

Bulk buys are great!

Hello all, how is everyone? I have been missing my mojo but I think that it is slowly coming back home.

I created this card with a couple of the bulk buy items for my club next tuesday nite. Unfortunately the ribbon slides are no longer available. Pooie, cuz they are great. And Patty over at Pattystamps taught us all how to color them in. YOu can check it out here.

The card base is bashful blue, the dp is summer picnic out of the occasions mini and it is yummy. The mat under the dp is pumpkin pie. The flowers are the new die cuts also in the new mini. The ribbon is the new poly twill and it is scrumptious. I used a rub on from the bulk buy A perfect Day. This card is really simple and could be used for many purposes. I stamped a Thank you because you always need one of those. The stamp is from the Much Appreciated set.

I colored the slide with a mixture of crystal effects and reinker and applied with a toothpick. Please check out Patty's site. Thanx for looking and have a stamp happy day!

In the meantime here is a card I made a few weeks ago and it never made my blog. Pretty simple but pretty.

Almost Amethyst, barely banana, and certainly celery are my colors and some whisper white. I used Time Well spent and the Polka Dot Bkgd stamp sets. I cut out my flower, butterfly and leaves. I colored in part of my sentiment with a white gel pen and I colored the flower and butterfly with the blending pen and classic ink pads.

As always thanx for looking and if you spot my mojo send it home promptly. Have a stamp happy day!
