Stampin Up's Last Chance list....

Will be posted tomorrow, June 1....stay tuned!!!

Just a few projects to post before the day gets away.

I completed a little project kit that Rebecca Kalp shared with us at the Power of Youth Crop last Saturday. I so love the Cheep Talk set and the matching Designer paper and Sizzix matchbox die. This was simple to put together and I love how they turned out.

So while I was playing with birds I decided that I wanted to ink up my Trendy Trees stamp set and use an untraditional colour combination; Pacific Point, Real Red, Summer Sun, black and white. I used the Cheep Talk Designer paper and pulled out my mat and template for piercing perfect holes. I had fun making this card.

A few card samples.........

Wowzers...I haven't been on here to post in quite some time...not to say that I have not been a busy girl!!!!

Well I went to Younique Country retreat in Guelph in April and then went to the Mega Meet in Novi in May. I have picked up some new yummy product but just need the time to play.

I have had a chance to make some cards, work on a make and take for a fundraiser crop and organize my scrap space a bit.

Here are a few cards....let me know what you think!!!

Don't you just love the Ketto stamps from Stamping Bella??? I picked them up at the Paper Pickle in Chatham as well as the Urban Prairie Paper from Basic Grey. These stamps are darling and you should go into the store to see them all......I am sure you will want them ALL too!!!

Same image but just tweaked a bit....a different mat and embellies.

This card I created for a SWAP at the Paper Passion. It was 5 People 5 Product swap. The host sent 5 of us envies that had 5 products in them and we had to make a creation using the product. This is what I came up with using stamps from All that Scraps.
