I Am Inspired Pinboard from Convention

This is the pinboard we created in the I am Inspired extra class at convention.  There are many elements that are meant to be used individually, the flower, the flag, the banner, but I decided to display them all together 🙂

Moving Forward – a Ronald McDonald House Charities Set

Did you know that Stampin’ Up! sells a unique stamp set every year with proceeds that go to the Ronald McDonald house charities? In the past $1 from the sale of every set went to this great cause, but this year this stamp set called Moving Forward awards the charity $3 per set! And it is ADORABLE! Here’s another monochromatic card I made. The stamp set is a two-step stamp set, allowing you to add a bird, frog or flowers to your images. I added flowers to the basket, and am proud at my eye-balling skills as I usually need a Stamp-a-ma-jig to help me!

We got this set for free at convention this year! I love all the fun surprises they always have for us there 🙂

Stamps: Moving Forward

Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Floral District DSP, Whisper White

You’re Amazing Elephant Birthday Card

I’m kind of on a monochromatic kick this month. This is a card we’ll make at the September Stamp Camp and one thing I love about Stampin’ Up! is that it is super simple to color coordinate. Marina mist cardstock matches marina mist ink (watercolored on the elephant’s hat), marina mist DSP and marina mist brads…. actually now that I look at the card… I accidentally used Tempting turquoise brads… oh well.

Stamps: You’re Amazing

Paper: Marina Mist, Polka Dot Parade DSP, Whisper White

Ink: Basic Gray, Marina Mist (for watercoloring and sponging)

Accessories: Aquapainter, 1/16″ Circle Punch, Apothecary Framelits, 2-1/2″ Circle Punch, Delicate Doilies Sizzlits, Stampin’ sponge.


Woodgrain Coredinations card

This card features 2 great new products: The coredinations cardstock that can be embossed and sanded for a two tone look, and the Wood Grain embossing folder! Love them both, the wood grain comes in quite handy for masculine cards.  I must also give a disclaimer that the coredinations cardstock is quite delicate.  It is thinner than regular cardstock and this embossing folder is a bit harsh on it so it can tear easily, especially when sanding, but other embossing folders don’t give quite the same issues… but since its only tearing “with the grain” its easy to disguise with extra adhesive where it tears.  Can you spot where it tore?  There are 2 places 😀  I can’t see it.

Stamps: Petite Pairs

Paper: Early Espresso, Early Espresso Coredinations, Whisper White

Ink: Early Espresso

Accessories: Stampin sanding block (with removable pads), dust buddy, early espresso baker’s twine
