Bottled Happiness – More Flowers!

This is my last post this week using the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set and the coordinating Vintage Bottle Punch.  In my last post I told you about my flowers that I haven't killed yet that are in my flower beds.   (Yes, I have two black thumbs!).  And I finally got smart and started planting perennials… Continue reading Bottled Happiness – More Flowers!

A Fun Fold with Old & New In Colors – Part 1

It’s always an exciting time when a new Annual Catalog comes out because that means, new stamps, new dies, new embossing folders and new In-Colors.  But on the other hand it can be a bit sad as some of the older In-Colors will be retired…in this case the 2020-2022 In-Colors of Magenta Madness, Just Jade,… Continue reading A Fun Fold with Old & New In Colors – Part 1

Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card

Quick and easy cards…who likes them?  I do!  There is something to be said for having one BIG stamp that covers the entire card front.  Stamp once, do a bit of coloring, add a little embossing and put it all together.  This is the result.  I made this card for a special friend who lost… Continue reading Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card
