This is one of my favorite stamps sets and have used it in Island Indigo for my swap for Baltimore Regional Stampin' Up Convention. Instead of it being a sympathy card I added "Life is a matter of moments" stamp from the set and coordinating ribbon on the bottom. Unfortunately I gave them all out not saving one to keep and add to the blog.
This card was done in Pool Party which is being added to the Color Refresh lineup....such a pretty shade. I added tiny pearls to the hummingbird's eye and to the flower for accent. Cardstock and ink are Pool Party on Whisper White. The sentiment is from a retired set that I keep because of it's script design.
Am I going to sell Elements of Style because it's retired? Not for a long time! I'll continue to use it for my own cards....it is just lovely to work with.
Blessings and Happy Stamping,

It has been almost a year since I updated my blog. So many of the cards I have made have not been my own design so I haven't added them here or else I made them and sent them with taking a picture of them....my mojo hasn't been working well lately. I hope to do better in the future.
Summer is finally here and I pray that it finds you well and safe. With all the horrendous weather across the nation and devastation it has caused, being well and safe is a wonderful thing.
Take care, God Bless and Happy Stamping!

With the help of my good friend Dodie, I now have 100 swaps completed and the additional 50 partially made. Simplicity is my middle name so I went with this great new stamp set called "Forever with You" stamped in Island Indigo on Whisper White and embossed with the Textured Impressions Square Lattice folder, then mounted on a layer of Island Indigo which is layered on Whisper White for a crisp look. I wanted to give the card a Sampler design look.
I am so excited to be going to Stampin' Up convention for the first time and next week this time will be almost touching down in Salt Lake City, first time in Utah also. I hope to see many of my fellow demonstrators that I have become friends with on line. I will be happy to swap with all of you.
Have a great day and hope everyone has a good and safe week.

When I was deciding how to make my son's 47th birthday card, I knew I had to use the motorcycle stamp I had bought especially with him in mind....not sure why it sat on the shelf for so long, but it did! Finally I will use it. At first I planned to add it to the front of the card, but once I decided on the color scheme, paper and added the glitter paper stars, their really wasn't any room left....so the inside was a decorated as the front. His Harley is a red Firefighter's Edition that was made after September 11, 2001 and has been very special to him. He has ridden it south to Key West, Florida, north as far as North Dakota, west to California and everywhere in between. All of these trips have been with at least one other firefighter, sometimes many and meeting up with others across the country. He has had 25 1/2 years service as a career firefighter, was a cadet in high school and also a volunteer for several years. He is retiring but not before giving the county another 2 1/2 years before hanging up his gear. As you can tell I am very proud of him as a son, dad and mentor to others.

Card 1 features some of the 2012-2014 In Colors of Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple. The stamp set is the new Betsy's Blossoms and the sentiment from the Petite Pairs stamp set. Also used was the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle and Scallop Edge Border punches.
Card 2 features the new In Color of Midnight Muse as well as other new In Colors using one of the Designer Series Papers in the new International Bazaar group. The stamp set is the new World Treasures set which also includes a beautiful peacock stamp. Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon and Rhinestone Basic Jewels finish the card.
Card 3 uses Midnight Muse as the only color accented with Whisper White. The new Fancy Fan embossing folder gives wonderful texture to the second layer with the center design cut with one of the new Apothecary Accents Framelits run through the Big Shot. The shape corresponds with one of the new Layered Labels. A simple yet elegant card!
I hope you like the new Stampin' Up products as much as I do. This is only a sample of the many new products for you to see in our new catalog.

We embossed the scallop edge on white cs 4" x 1 3/4" then using the scalloped die to cut the red & white cs together lining up the cutting die with the embossed scallops before cutting in the Big Shot. The red piece is 4' x 1 1/2" & the white is 4" x 4 3/4". Your finished white layers should be 5 1/4" when finished. The labels are made with the larger in red cs then embossed with the dots and the smaller cut from the Glimmer Paper. The sentiment is from the You Are Loved stamp set cut with the matching punch and trimmed with a rhinestone.
Card stock is Whisper White and Real Red, ink is Real Red as is the satin ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

The theme for our Team meeting in January was to use something from the new Occasions Mini or the Sale-a-bration catalog. Of the 5 who attended 4 used the same theme for the Shoebox Swap...like minds...hmm! We all used the same paper collection from the SAB called Everyday Enchantment which is so pretty with all it's soft colors and patterns.
My card is a CASE of SU demo Kay Kalthoff changing the color scheme slightly. I used Pool Party cs for my base and frame, Fresh Vintage stamp set, Calypso Coral, Lucky Lime and Pool Party markers on the stamp and the Calypso Coral organdy ribblon from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack. All the items are featured in the annual Sale-a-bration Promotion on going until March 31. Any item can be yours with each purchase of $50. in Stampin' Up product.
Thanks for stopping by and may you be blessed in 2012!
