Thankful for...

Stamping!

Plus, a Sunday morning when I can get my life back on track and balanced. A little cleaning, reorganizing, and lesson planning, and stamping this afternoon! Here's a card to celebrate fall and thankfulness.



Stamps: Truly Grateful
Paper: Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Early Espresso 1/8" Ribbon, 1" Square Punch

Check it out--a No BIG SHOT CARD! There are four cool things about this card:

1). The background doesn't fill the whole piece, but you can stamp it multiple times easily. Even of you overlap it a bit, the pattern covers it up.

2). I punched out the Tree slice and used my paper snips to rough the edges. Very easy and a cool detail.

3) Sweater Designer Series Paper Coordinates so well that I had no problems designing my colors.

4) I used a sketch from my Canadian friends' new sketch challenge! Check them out at http://www.asyouseeitchallenge.com/



Happy Stamping!

I'm Backkk!

Hopefully! I've been putting all my effort into my teaching, planning, and classroom. It's paying off for 7/8 of each day, but that 1/8 is killing me! So tonight, I decided to put away the work for a while and post one of the projects I have done somewhat lately.

 And open:
Stamps: Best of Halloween
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Witch's Brew Designer Series Paper
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Circle Thinlits Card Dies. Brights Candy Dots, Circles Framelits, Big Shot

Very fun and easy to use Stampin' Up!'s new Thinlit Card dies. Here's more info:




All the cool parts on this card are from the Circle Thinlit Card Die--the flag, the arrows, the flipydoodle part.

Happy Stamping!

Painted Background

Happy Fall! The colors started changing a bit around here early, but have slowed down for a heat wave. Hopefully, the crisp air of fall comes soon.





Stamps: Gently Falling, Bring on the Cake
Paper: Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Ink: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze
Accessories: Painter's Tape, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Regals Buttons, Linen Thread

My friend, Barbara, introduced this to me with her fabulous examples. The background effect is created by placing a piece of Painter's tape directly on the ink pad and then applying to the paper. Remove the tape, and you get that background! How cool is that!

I love, love, love this technique!
Happy Creating!

Happy September 2013!

Check it out! It's near the first of the month and I'm sharing a digital wallpaper with you!



What do you think? Am I obsessed with school or what?

I love MDS. I made this during one TV episode Sunday Night and felt as  if I changed the world. Well, not changed the world, but got something accomplished!

Happy Creativity!
