Your Perfect Day with WWYS

Hi Everyone,

Kind of nice to be stamping again since I returned from Hawaii. Even though it was a Stampin’ Up! Trip we did not do any stamping!!! Just more fun than you can stand!! one of the perks for being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

Now for todays Stamp Set. We are featuring “Your Perfect Day” Set which is so pretty. Hope you like my rendition.

I used Whisper white Cardstock for the card base and cut it to 4 1/4 x 11 and then cut a mat to 4 x 5 1/4 cover that with a mat of the Fancy Foil Vellum. I attached it with Snail Adhesive where it wouldn’t show….like where I placed the Oval.

I stamped the Wedding Cake in Versamark and then sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder and Heat set with my hear gun. I then colored in with the pretty soft sky marker. I also rolled the edges of the oval in Versamark and Silver Embossing Powder to give it a finished look. I then added a cute little bow made out of Soft Sky Seam Binding and attached with a glue dot.

I like the way it came out…I hope you do too.

I also hope that you will head on over to What Will You Stamp and play along with it. It’s fun!!! You’ll also be able to see the other Design Team Members creations as well. I just know they will be awesome!!

Not sure if you all know but the new catalog is coming!! It is available now from me. If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and would like a copy just hit the contact me button at the top of my blog. I will be happy to get one to you.

Now for the ingredients for my card:……..

Thanks for stopping in. I hope  you’ll come back. I’ll be taking reservations for New Product Shares soon. Stay tuned!

Have a great day!

What Will You Stamp with Adventure Awaits?

Hi Everyone,

wwys cropped

Back with another challenge from WWYS. This is such a fun group and I love seeing all the different things created with the same stamp set. Kind of makes the purchase so worthwhile to see all these ideas. Especially in one spot!

This week it’s the Adventure Awaits Set

wwys 11

Here is my take on this….kind of different for me. I just couldn’t get past this idea. So I went with it. Sometimes I have trouble keeping track of things I need to do so thought this cute frame might keep me focused! haha….we’ll see. Sometimes I’m a bit scattered!!! Okay those of you that know me know I’m a lot scattered…so be nice and stop laughing!! hehe

adventure awaits frame

and a close up of the image and a peek of what’s underneath. It’s the laser cut piece from the Artisan Kit. Need a little feminine to this bold Masculine image, right? I’ve really mixed it up on this project!!!

adventure awaits 2

Gotta tell you I really struggled with this challenge. Then I saw this fun frame at Wal-Mart I think and thought it might just work. Isn’t it funny how the smallest things can inspire you?

Bottom Line I do work very hard at what I do…not so much the stamping but the Charity Events I do…..it’s become a way of life for me so this saying just fit. Work Hard –Stay Humble. That’s what this saying says to me. It might mean something else to everyone else. That’s the beauty of it.
