Welcome Little One

Card, Little One, Baby, Welcome

Thank you JilliBling for swapping with me for this adorable baby card.  I must admit this stamp set did not grab my eye in the catalog.  But OMGOSH I can't get over how stinking cute this card is.  Why oh why didn't I grab it and play away with it.  Unfortunately this stamp set is retiring and as you know I only keep current products on hand.  But this shouldn't stop you from grabbing this set before its gone.  Isn't it funny how sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees.  That's exactly how I feel about this stamp set.  Now that I have this card in my possession I just see all types of possibilities.

Painted Harvest with Petal Pair Embossing Folder Cards

Card, Painted Harvest, Petal Paire Embossing Folder

Spring time and smiles is what pops into my mind when looking at this card I received as a swap.  I would love to give credit to the creator but unfortunately she didn't label her creation.  I love how she used the Petal Pair Embossing Folder for the strip to the right of the stamped image to give the card that added pizzazz.  If you enjoy two step stamping then you'll love the Painted Harvest Stamp Set, and I also give a great tip for lining it up in the video below.

Card, Painted Harvest, Petal Paire Embossing Folder

The orginal creator went with Crushed Curry and Berry Burst for her color combination and the flowers from the Petal Pair Embossing Folder Set.  I wanted to bring my own twist to it, so I stuck with Crushed Curry but went with Pacific Point and the leaf stems from the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.  You know I'm all about keeping it real, so I will say I wish I had moved the embossing folder a little further to the right.  With that being said I still think the card turned out adorable.

Birthday Delivery and Icing on the Cake Card Yummy Yummy Yummy

Card, Birthay Delivery, Icing on the Cake, Best Friends Dies

What a precious card this is that I received from Carol Lambert.  Carol combined the Birthday Delivery Stamp Set and the Icing on the Cake Stamp Set with the Birthday Friends to make this masterpiece.  I absolutely love how it appears that you are actually looking at the top of a cake, genius!!!

Berry Burst is her color of choice to make everything pop especially on the bakers bandana tie and pastry tool (can you tell I'm not real sure what that frosting squeezer is called) ;)  I hope you enjoyed checking out Carol's card as much as I enjoyed receiving it as a swap card.

Waterfront for a Clean & Simple Card

Card, Waterfront, Clean & Simple

I love a Stamp Set with tons of possibilities based on what I'm feeling.  The Waterfront is just that type of set.  Kim Quade created the beautiful Clean & Simple Sympathy Card and I followed her lead by tweaking it just a bit and using the Every little kindness makes the world brighter sentiment.
As you will see in the quick video below, this card can litteraly be created in minutes, which is just what we need sometimes.

Card, Waterfront, Clean & Simple

Kim went a little more subtle with her colors by stamping off once as I when straight to my cardstock with the ink.  Similar but different which is always refreshing. Because my sentiment was a little larger I chose to move my bow to the right hand side of the card to provide the balance it needed.

Tip, Lip Balm, Blocks, Keeping Stamps on Blocks

A couple of months ago I showed you how Surgical Spirit was a great tool to help keep your stamps that have their stickers on them on your acrylic block, if  you missed this tip video you can CLICK HERE to watch it.  That being said there's usually more than one great way to tackle a problem and in today's quick tip video I will show you how your lips can be moist and your stamps can stay on your acrylic blocks by using the same tube of lip balm.  Ok, you might want to buy a seperate one for your stamps but you get what I'm saying :)
