Just Believe and Build A Blossom .... Going, going, gone!

I have been doing some serious purging!  My craft room was getting pretty bad so I knew I had to do something.  Since I had already gone through a lot of stuff to put in the sale last week, I decided to keep it up.  I needed to redo my paper storage to get the retiring colors out and put the new colors in the files so I got all new labels typed up for that.  I had three drawers full of bits and pieces and some whole pieces of card stock that has long been retired as well as DSP that I found I really wasn't using that much.  So I have made goodie bags for my stamp club gals full of paper and DSP.  They can use it or pitch it - it's up to them!  I also found bags full of 3-D items I have required over the years in swaps that needed to go.  I went through them and kept out a few I wanted to keep and put the rest in a box and I will let my gals pick out what they want this month.  I feel pretty good and my floor is clean since I even vacuumed!!  I still have a big container of DSP to go through but I'm getting there!

I did have time this afternoon to make a card to share with you using a stamp set that I think a lot of people will miss - Just Believe.  It is such a pretty set that I am going to hold on to mine just a little longer!  I also used retiring colors for the card - I love Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink together!  They have always been my "go to" colors for spring and flower cards.  Guess I'll be finding a new combo now - how about Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette and Pool Party????

Here is another retiring set - Build A Blossom and the coordinating punch.  I sold this set on Saturday - I had to do it quick before I thought about it too hard or it would have come back home with me!!  I used the Soda Pop Top for the center and stamped the butterfly from Collage Curios to put in the middle.  Collage Curios is in the Spring Mini Catalog - if you like this set, you better buy it now - just saying!

 Here is a close up of the center.
 This tulip card was also made using the Build A Blossom punch!  I just used the leaf portion of the punch and punched out 5 petals for each flower - from Rich Razzleberry and Regal Rose.  How different from the card above!

Monday Mailer from March

This is a card I made for a Monday Mailer in March.  When I was in Texas, I forgot to share it with you.  I love this card and the stamp set.  I need to dust it off and use it more.  I used Field Flowers, Just Believe and the Butterfly Embosslits with some masking.  The flowers are stamped in Daffodil Delight and Peach Parfait using the two-step stamping technique.

I found this cool fun fold card on Laura Lipe's blog and decided to give it a try.  I really like how it turned out!

Cardstock:  Old Olive, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Greenhouse Gala DSP
Stamp:  Just Believe
Markers:  Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
I colored directly on the stamp with my markers.  This card fits in a standard envelope.

Just Believe

I have been playing with my new stamp sets for a few days now and I think I have made a card using each one of them.  This one was made for a friend's birthday.  She reads my blog so hopefully, she will have received her card before she reads the blog! 

This card uses the Just Believe stamp set.  I think this is one of the sets that was given to demonstrators at SU's convention this summer.  Sadly, I had to purchase mine!  Well, I guess really, they purchased theirs when they payed to attend convention, forked out $$ for a hotel & plane ticket ... maybe mine was cheaper!  I keep saying I won't buy anymore floral sets, but they are just too hard to resist!! 

This next card does not use a new set.  It is the final Monday Mailer that I sent to Naomi for August.  It uses one of the Decor Elements stencils that I love.  I sponged the flower in Peach Parfait (In Color) and Pumpkin Pie and used the Greenhouse Gala DSP to accent the card.  The ribbon is Peach Parfait

Have you been enjoying the Labor Day weekend?  I have.  Marianne came over Friday and spent the night so we could work on our projects for the upcoming SU Quarterly meeting we will be attending in Shallotte.  We are doing several swaps - a Christmas Tag swap (which I am coordinating), a Holiday card swap, a 6x6 recipe swap and a Shoebox card.  I am also doing a demo for the event that I have to prepare for 32 people.  A lot to do!!  But, we made a lot of headway on Friday and Saturday.  I actually have everything done except the recipe card!  I am so proud of myself.  Marianne also got a good start on her projects and I think only has the recipe swap to finish also.

Sonny & I went out on the boat for a few hours this afternoon.  The weather is starting to cool down a bit and it was nice.  But, I hear the humidity may be coming back next week.  I hope not! 

Well, enjoy yourself tomorrow!
