Farewell to Elements of Style

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,

Baby shower invitation

My granddaughter is giving a baby shower for a special friend and co-worker. She chose the style and together we came up with the design using Holly's theme. We cut the top off a sealed white envelope and ran the bottom through the crimper, then sponged the top & bottom with retired Pretty in Pink ink and trimmed it with ret. Mellow Moss ribbon I had a whole spool of. Inside she used the tree from "Thoughts and Prayers", the booties and verse on the envelope from ret. Bundles of Joy from the Spring catalog and a 1994 stamp of the baby. All ink is Stampin'up including Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss and Blush. Card stock is Whisper White and Crumb Cake.
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!
