Release Week at IBS

I just LOVE when it is release time at IBS!

Once again, Joanna, owner/designer of IBS has outdone herself!!

Today I am on the IBS Blog sharing a card using the new Flower of the Month: Waterlily set!!

What a beautiful set!

I had such a fun time coloring a few of the images from the set to create this pretty card:

There are three images in the set, I used both the waterlily images and one of the four sentiments!

Close-up of the main waterlily:
So pretty!!

Be sure to check out the Inspired By Stamping Blog!
Lots of wonderful projects this week, featuring the new sets!!

Tomorrow I will be showcasing all of the sets!!

Happy Stamping!

End of Summer Creations with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog!

I am SUPER excited, we are switching things up a little bit!
Each month we are going to have a week on the GI Blog where the designers will be sharing projects other than the normal cards and tags!

So with the "End of Summer Creations" in mind, I decided to take a fun jar I had sitting on my shelf and alter it!

At first, I wasn't sure what I was going to put inside of the jar, but it hit me as I was finishing up, how fun would it be to put bubbles inside?!

So I did just that!
I created a label out of the Summertime Flowers (F269) to adhere to the jar.

Here's a look at the image going through my sticker maker:

Close-up:
What a fun image!

And what a fun idea for kids!!

Race Fan

Hello crafty friends!

Today I have a digital layout to share with you!

Each year we try to take the kids to the local race track, as they just love watching races!


Seeing how excited the two of them get while watching the races, really makes me miss being behind the wheel!

I would love for hubby and I to still be racing, as they would for sure be our #1 fans!  It would be so neat to have them cheering for us!

It was amazing the # of fans I had when I raced and to have these two watching me would have been fun to experience!

But it was such an expensive sport and took up so much time!  So for that I do not miss it as we have so many other things we have been able to do!


Have a wonderful Saturday!

Floating By with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog!

I have a super fun card to share with you, using some new stamps from GI!

I think the Up Up and Away (H256) is such a cute/super fun stamp!
I also used the new Just Floating (E648) sentiment!
I decided to break it up into 3 different pieces to make the sentiment kind of float around the image!

Here's a close-up of the balloon:
How fun!!

Birdie Swinging with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog!

As always, I am SUPER excited to share my card with you today!!
I love how it turned out!

I love the new Birdie Swinging (F584) stamp!!

Isn't this birdie adorable?!

I used the My Friend (B181) sentiment, as well as using the new Flitting Butterflies (A32) to add around the sentiment!
I thought the Flitting Butterflies (A32) added a nice touch to the sentiment!
