Stamp-A- Stack day!! Group A

We had such a nice fun and long.... day. Our tummies were full and our hands were hard at work creating our 20 cards!! Everyone was great! I'm only sad I did not get pictures of people EATING.

Swinging Sentiments

This is the Swing card that matched the coaster. You know how men like things with action. So... A card that moves was perfect.
I stamped the image with Staz-0n brown,then used the Stampin' write markers to add color. Then I used a spray sealer added cork to the bottom am WALLA! Art in 5 minutes.

This was one of the projects we did fo Father's Day this year. I really like the sentiments spilling out of the back of the truck. My husband puts his coffee on it andis reminded of how much he is loved!! I had to hunt through a lot of boxes at The Home Depot to find tiles with texture, yet smooth in the areas I needed for stampin'. I think it was well worth enduring all the squating I did, cuz boxes were on the bottom shelf.

Stampin on Tiles!!!! So Cool...

I made each of these tiles with a certain friend in mind. The truck was for Lisa B. who is ALWAYS on the run, The Ooh LaLa for Theresa is is such a Coquet and loves to ride on a bike(with or without a motor) and Adri Who is one of a kind!!

Jumbo bookmark made my Mom smile


My Mom was soooo cute when I

Made her this book mark. She was in my Stampin Nook and looking at all the punches. She really does not know what I do in here, Or more How I do what I do. So... right in front of her with some scraps I showed her what punches do. Then I put them together and this is what turned out. She was just tickled PINK! Ran into the kitchen and got her book and marked her page. She said," We can add a pin on the back and I can wear it!". She is sooo funny. She might just do it.

Stamp-A-Stack sample

This is one of the cards we are making at the Stamp-A-Stack. These In Colors really do look great togather.

Well, I just have to give a BIG hug to Adri! She came over yesterday and helped me enter the Blogging world!!!! We are both having sooo much fun with this. You must visit her blog She is a great Stamper.

I think one is my FAV> It needs a sprinkle of Dazzling Diamond Dust. They look like a flower you would find in Hawaii.

FLowers flowers everywhere...

Well...I woke up one morning thinking about this punch. So, I sat down and pulled out some scraps and Walla. I was going to make 6 that looked the same but...As you can see I could NEVER lay the flowers down in the same spot. I'm going to miss River Rock.

Spring Card

This was a cool fold to make and sooo easy. I used the flowers from The Prettiest Kit and Essence of Love stamp set.
