Backyard Basics Swap

Hello Everyone
I recently got back from a trip to the Stampin' Up! 25th anniversary convention in Salt Lake City.  While I was there I participated in an "Over The Top" swap and this is the card I made. 

To qualify as "over the top" the card had to have 5-7 layers and 2 embellishments.  My card was made with the Backyard Basics stamp set that has matching Framelits.  Don't you just love it when Stampin' Up! does that?  It makes it so easy to create a great card without a lot of extra free hand cutting.  I hope you enjoy my card.  Thanks for visiting.

Lovely As A Tree

Lovely as a Tree

Held class today at Casa Maria and we had a full house.  Everyone had a wonderful time stamping, chatting with friends and having a fabulous lunch afterwards.  We made three cards and the card above was one of them.  I used the always popular Stampin’ Up! set Lovely As A Tree and can I just say I am so happy to report that it survived the retirement list again this year.  The background was stamped in Versamark using Flowering Flourishes on Lucky Limeade and Marina Mist cardstock.  The focal circle was stamped with Black Stazon and then the grass and sky were sponged in using Lucky Limeade and Marina Mist.  Sentiment is from Petite Pairs.

My next class at Casa Maria is on Saturday, June 29 at 11:30.  You might want to write it on your calendar to reserve the date.  We would love to have you join us.

Thanks for coming back here to visit.

Mosaic Madness

I'm finally back after another lengthy absence and I'm sharing a card today that was made using one of the new stamp sets from the 2013/2014 annual Stampin' Up! catalog.  The stamp set is called Mosaic Madness.  I also used two of the new In Colors...Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush.  I've got to tell you that Coastal Cabana is my new favorite reminds me of the beautiful clear blue of the ocean in the islands.  Other new product used here is the Modern Mosaic embossing folder and the Mosaic punch.  Don't you just love this entire new collection?  I know I do!!!   

Thanks for not giving up on me and coming back to visit my blog.  I hope to see you here again soon.
