Stamping fun

I had a wave of stamping fun today. I whipped up a bunch of cards while watching Harry Potter. Maybe Harry is my inspiration. It helped that I printed out some of the sketch challenges from SCS. I made 3 cards for the sketch challenges and a few more just because. I actually made a birthday card for my neice and her birthday isn't even until April. Here's some eye candy for you.
I used my new SAB set Very Punny for this one. I also just got the Dotted background stamp. I used Real Red, Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock.

This one is a single layer card. I wanted to try out my Big Blossom. I inked it up with Pink Passion. I then used So Very with Basic Black. I'm not sure if the happy was the best choice, but I love how bright the flower is in real life.

I think that's all I'm going to post for now. I'll save some for another day. As always, thanks for looking!


Sneak Peak

Sorry I've been away for a while, but I've been crazy busy with school and working full time through March. I did however get all the samples for my AOII stamp-a-stack done. Here's a sneak peak of one of the cards we will be making.
I used Hearfelt Thanks with the Poppin' Pastels technique. I look forward to a day of stamping with my sisters!!!


I should be doing homework

The servers were down for scheduled maintenance today, so I couldn't get any of my questions answered on my home work, so instead of just moving on to the next question, I grabbed a movie and headed downstairs. I made two scrapbook pages and started working on what I'm going to demo for my upcoming SAS. If you're lucky and I get my homework done tomorrow (and put the Christmas tree away) then I'll upload my pages. As a teaser, I tried to make a page look tie-dyed and I don't know if I like it or not, so I will want your opinion. OK, I should do something productive, then go to bed.


Stampin' on

Well, it's been a crazy few days, but I'm back at home, unpacked and cleaning like a mad woman. Tomorrow is my Open House (stop by if you have a chance) and I had left my stampin' room a mess when I went to California. Well, it's clean now and I even had a chance to whip up a thank you card for Shelli with my new Polka Dots & Paisley set. I'm pretty nervous about sending her this card. She is stamping royalty. I hope she likes it. I used Tempting Turquoise for the base of the card. The paisley are stamped with black StazOn on Whisper White and colored in with watercolor pencils and blended. The flower is stamped in Pixie Pink on Whisper White and mounted on Pixie Pink. The flower is then mounted on Orchid Opulence and the sentiment is stamped with Basic Black. Last, but not least, silver brads are attached in the bottom corners.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think!!!!


Stampin' Up! promo

I'm so excited to tell you about this great deal in Jan. and Feb. during Sell-a-bration(SAB). If you've ever thought about becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator now is a great time. During SAB new recruits can pick a free stamp set of their choice (up to $39.95 value) in addition to the great items already included in the starter kit. But here's the kicker, new recruits will also receive the stamp set Polka Dots and Paisley that was sent to all the demonstrators in December. This set will be available in the Spring Mini. So if you are interested in becoming a demonstrator contact me at stampin.heather@yahoo.com and we can talk.

More posts to come next week when I get home from San Diego.
