No stamping--- No fun

I have had NO TIME lately to do any stamping!  I'm hoping to be able to spend a little time in the stamp room this week.  I hope to have some new samples for you then.

In the meantime check out our new Scrumptious Celebrations website at http://www.scrumptiouscelebrations.yolasite.com.  There are so many new designs to choose from and new ones every week.  I'd love to get feedback on what other designs you might be interested in.

Happy Easter

I sure hope you had as wonderful an Easter Sunday as I did.  I hope you are rejoicing in the joy of the Lord today.  What a special day.  One of the things I still love to do for Easter is color eggs.  After coloring my eggs, I did my decorating this year using the Egg-cellent Eggs kit from the Occasions Mini.   Here are the results!

Mystery Card Class- Part 5

I just realized that I never did post the fifth and final card from the Mystery Card Class... so here goes.  If you remember, I gave people all of the supplies including stamped images, etc and let them create a card-- without seeing my sample first.  The cards above are what those in the class created!  Very very creative!
This is my sample.  The card is Very Vanilla on a background of Elegant Eggplant.  I stamped the Medallion stamp in Almost Amethyst on the side of the card and the greeting from Well Scripted on the bottom in Elegant Eggplant.  The focal point is a the flower from Happy Moments (a sale-a-bration set).  I stamped it in Basic Black on Very Vanilla and colored it in with markers-  Elegant Eggplant, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace and Certainly Celery.  I punched the image out with the Scallop Circle punch and then added 1/16" punches in each scallop.  I layered it on a 1 3/8" punch out of Almost Amethyst and then a larger circle of Elegant Eggplant that I cut out with the Creative Memories circle cutter.  I added the image to the card using dimensionals.

The border in the middle is Elegant Eggplant with the Eyelet Border punch and a sliver of Almost Amethyst cardstock along the top.  Lastly I added a bow around the middle using Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed this series.  It was a really fun class.  I'm planning on doing it again with Christmas cards.
