Glimmer of Sweet Sugarplum

I wanted the thank you cards for my club ladies to feature the awesome glimmer paper from the Sale-a-Bration (SAB) second release. I also thought it would be nice to feature one of the SAB stamp sets. Avant Garden was one of the sets that I had skimmed over, thinking “Do I really need another flower stamp?”. But after Hunter looked through the brochure, that was her first choice. So…as a good parent, I simply had to get it, right?  The cards I made are a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from Kylie Bertucci’s blog. She is so talented!  You can see her post here:  http://www.craftykylie.com/2017/02/kylies-international-highlights-winners.html

Wisteria Weather and Reminiscing

We’ve been getting hit with so much rain today, that I thought it would be the perfect time to use my Weather Together set with the matching dies. I just love thunderstorms. I remember when the children were itty bitties and scared of the thunder. I would take them outside onto the porch, all of them trying to sit on my lap, and we’d sit there in silence together…watching the lightning and listening to thunder. Bittersweet memories…

Hot Dog! Retirement Card

There’s a man I know that is retiring from a local community college at the end of this year. He’s the kind of guy  that will definitely get a chuckle out of a hot dog truck! This truck is too stinkin’ cute! It’s from an upcoming Sale-a-Bration set called Tasty Trucks. I keep laughing every time I look at it! The set will be available to earn beginning January 4, 2017.  I even broke out my Stampin’ Write markers for this task. I haven’t colored with them in a long time and had forgotten how fun that can be.

Notice the windows, lights and reflectors. How funny! I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen and added a layer of the glue. When it dries, it’s all shiny!

Falling for Dragonfly Dreams

I finally received my Stampin’ Up preorder with the Dragonfly Dreams bundle! Anyone that knows me knows I LOVE DRAGONFLIES!  In fact, that is the theme in my living room and I even have a framed display of 4 real ones (purchased prior to me becoming vegan, LOL). As you can guess, the second I saw there were dragonflies in the 2017 Occasions catalog, it was over! I also bought the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper. It’s marketed in the catalog with the wedding themed items, but it is soft and beautiful with the dragonflies. I have fallen in love with it!

I stamped the detailed dragonfly stamp in Versamark on Vellum cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. After die cutting it out, the wings curled up a LOT. So I decided to use the dragonfly framelit die to cut a matching one out to glue behind the vellum. The large dragonflies and the sentiment banners are popped up with dimensionals. This makes my heart happy!
