Goodbye and Hello Again

Thought I ought to pop in and post a few of the cards that I haven't been posting but I have been making.  Each of these cards feature products that are retiring (bye-bye) and products that are sticking around and are in the new catalog.
Saying goodbye to the Painted Blooms designer series paper but glad that the stamp set Feel Goods is sticking around for another year!
So happy that Sheltering Tree is in the new catalog but sad to say goodbye to the retiring In Colors, Baked Brown Sugar and Strawberry Slush.
Don't panic....Swallowtail is in the new catalog! 
Saying goodbye to the stamp set Million & One.

Indescribable Gift

Thought I would pop in with a post and wish you all a Happy Easter.
I love the cherry blossom image from the Indescribable Gift stamp set.
It is so fun to color.  This first card I used the blendabilities markers which have now been discontinued.  The other two cards I used the Stampin' Write markers on.

On this card I embossed the image in white on watercolor paper and used markers, ink refills and an aquapainter to color in the image and add the blue to the background.

Heat embossed the image with gold on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored in with markers.

Thanks for looking-

Spinning Butterfly Card

Remember those spinner cards made using 2 pennies?
I had forgotten about them until seeing this idea.

I saw this card idea on Maria's Creative Place blog.

See her video HERE for instructions on how to make this fun card!

Lotus Blossom

Oh my!  Love this Lotus Blossom stamp set from sale-a-bration.
It is a 3 step photopolymer stamp which makes it so easy to see where you layer the next stamp to create the flower.
This card features the Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink along with the new Spring Flowers embossing folder from the Occasions Catalog.

Sheltering Tree - Four Seasons

Finally got a chance to play with the Sheltering Tree stamp set.
This was one of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog and the first stamp set I received was defective so had to wait for a replacement.
These are the only cards I have made so far with this set and my first attempt.


The tree is stamped with black stazon.
The red glimmer paper heart was made using the heart in the Owl Builder punch.

I used Chocolate Chip for this tree trunk.  I think it is too dark.
Tried Baked Brown Sugar on the following two and like it much better.

I look forward to playing with this set more!

Just had to share another quilt:
 This is a shop sample I made for a local quilt shop that I work part time at.
Just saw it today quilted and it is so cute.
The fabric is Somerset by Fig Tree & Co. for Moda.
Thanks for looking!
