You're Sublime

When Ashley was here in November, she had fun playing with my stamps.  She is such a good little artist and doesn't have to CASE like I do!  Here are a few of the cards she made using You're Sublime.

This card is done in Elegant Eggplant and Daffodil Delight.  She stamped the Paisley and Posies (still available) stamp on the background.  The Daffodil piece was cut out using the Sunburst Thinlit.  She stamped the camper onto white cardstock and stamped the polka dots all over it with Perpetual Birthday Calendar.

This card uses the cute little crab from You're Sublime.  The embossing folder is a retired one but you could easily substitute the new Seaside folder.

I'm sure you will see the Beatle connection in this next card!  She is a HUGE Beatles fan and just doesn't understand why I didn't go see the Beatles in concert when I was a teenager.  The closest they came to Charlotte back then was Atlanta.  We didn't just get in the car and drive that far back then nor was concert going a regular thing for a teenager!  She hand wrote "We all live in a ...."

August Stamp Club

Busy week for me (as you can guess from the lack of posts!).  I played bridge on Monday.  Then Tuesday, learned of the death of a husband of one of the gals in our bridge group.  Pete had been in and out of hospitals and rehab for 5 years with kidney disease but still, it was a shock.  Last night we went to a party at a friend's new house in our neighborhood.  Wouldn't you know it, an hour before the party was to start, it started raining.  We need the rain but it sure ruined the plans of those who had planned to boat over to Anna's house!  Luckily, her house is huge so there was plenty of room inside for everyone and even outside in the covered areas.  It was a lot of fun.  This has also been Stamp Club week although my numbers have dwindled drastically this week.  I ended up having a total of 4 people this week.  But we had fun anyway!  Here are the cards we made this week.

This card was one I received last spring in a swap made by Melissa Kernan.  It was a different use of the stamp set, Sheltering Tree.  The only change I made was to emboss the Mossy Meadow piece with the new Woodlands embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog,

 This set uses the Paper Pumpkin set I bought at convention.  Love the gift bag, card and matching envelope!

 Another CASE from Pinterest.  I thought the upside ice cream cones fit the sentiment great!!

This is a new set that I just purchased.  It is in the annual catalog - You're Sublime.  I just love the cute images in this set!  I haven't decided which is my favorite.  I think this set will make really cute little note card sets.  I used DSP from the Subtles Stack and let each person choose which image they wanted to make.

My $200 Shopping Spree order arrived yesterday while I was gone along with a $100 order that I had placed - all from the Holiday Catalog!!  I can't wait to start playing with all the new goodies!

Kiss A Frog!

I had fun today going through the Holiday Catalog (about a million times!) and picking out my $200 winnings!  I decided to get mostly holiday stamps since I just sold almost all my Christmas stamps.  Out with the old, in with the new!  I finally made up my mind and sent it away before I changed my mind (again!).  It's not easy trying to get the order to exactly $200 but I did it.  Then this afternoon, I put together another large order from my earnings of selling my old stamps.  I should be set for a while.  Now to be patient and wait for everything to arrive.

In the meantime, I played with a really cute stamp set from the annual catalog called "You're Sublime."  I love the cute little frog in this set as well as the other images which I will be sharing with you in the future.  But first, the froggies!

This first one is a CASE from a swap card I received at convention.  I sponged the sky with Marina Mist ink and sponged the grass with Cucumber Crush (my favorite green!)  I stamped the frog on a piece of scrap paper, cut him out and mounted him with dimensionals.  The line is hand drawn with a Black Marker.  I used the Brick Wall embossing folder for the background on the Whisper White piece.

For the next frog, I decided to make it a "her" and drew on the lips and added a little blue eyeshadow on her eyes!  What do you think?  Would you kiss her?

Ashley is finishing up her time in the Phillipines and will be headed to Viet Nam this weekend.  The end is in sight for her.  She has really loved this deployment but she will be happy to get back to the states and go to her favorite store, Target!
