New Ink Pads from Stampin' Up!

Hello Crafters! Yes, it's been some time and I apologize for that. I am posting from California; the hubby and I along with our grandson are here visiting family and friends for a few days. It has been a blast seeing people I haven't seen in seven years, since my move to Arizona.
So have you heard about our new ink pads? I'm pretty excited about this and I did just receive a few before I left on vacation and they are simply awesome. So enjoy the video and let me know what you think. Have a great day, thanks for visiting.

Framelits Die

Hey Crafters! As promised here is another project I worked on over the week-end I was pleased with. Adding the banner-flag things to projects is trendy right now. This card is Whisper White c/s, the dsp banner/flag is Twitterpated from the Occasions Mini. Island Indigo and Whisper White c/s was cut with our new Labels Collection framelits die also in the Occasions Mini. The stampset, Rue Des Fleurs, is also in the mini. I like the simple design of this project. Inks used are Island Indigo and Pear Pizzaz. Dazzling Diamonds was added

Hello Crafters! Yes, I'm back; sorry for the the lengthy delay in posting. I did not mean to take a leave from updating my blog but life took over, can you relate? I love a line from the movie The Coal Miner's Daughter (an oldie but a goodie) where the star, Sissy Spacek as Loretta Lynn has a nervous breakdown and shares with her audience something Patsy Cline (Beverly D'Angelo in the movie)told her. The line is (use Southern accent here)...girrl, ya got to live your own life...but my life was livin' me! That's the line and it's what happened to me these past few weeks. Sorry if that bored you, I have loads of movie lines that just pop up in certain situations, LOL. Okay, on to my card share; of course Valentine's Day is next month so I will be creating a few cards and projects for that. This is one we'll be creating in class this month, not everyone celebrates Valentine's so I tried to keep this one a little generic thinking it could be used for an anniversary or wedding. The card is Early Espresso c/s layered with Whisper White c/s. The stampset is I {Heart} Hearts, the ink is Old Olive and Real Red classic. The red heart is punched with our large heart punch using our Real Red Glitter Paper, I LOVE this paper! Doesn't that little heart just add a little sump'n sump'n? Thanks for visiting. I hope you come back soon, I will post again in two days!
