Best Friend – FS107 – SgtStamper

Good morning and praise God for the glorious sunshine here in West Tennessee.  Today’s Featured Stamper on SCS is Jami, aka SgtStamper, and you must take a look at her gallery here.  You will be amazed at the gorgeous creations.  I chose this card as my inspiration and changed a few things- paper, images and colors.   Jami’s card gives you such a warm and fuzzy feeling and I hope my friend will feel that way when she gets my card.

On the Fly – LSC207 Stretch Yourself – Something Different

Hello all and Happy Valentine’s Day!  I hope that you are warm and I know you are looking forward to spring.  It has been lovely here in Tennessee this week- I can see buds on my Bradford pear tree and buttercups peeking out from the ground.  It’s a little colder today, but still looks like we will have sunshine all day.  My sweetie and I are going to see our great-nephew play basketball, then go out for the best hamburger I’ve ever had at a little diner type restaurant in Henderson, Tennessee called Bells.  I’ve been going there since I was just a little girl and people drive from miles around for the food.

The SCS Limited Supply Challenge this week was to get out of our comfort zone and do something different.  I’ve always run the other way when it comes to the brayering technique because it just seemed so hard.  So I decided to challenge myself and give it a real try.  I went to Michelle Zindorf’s blog, the ultimate expert on this technique and pretty much cased  this card.  Her creations are amazing and if you haven’t visited her blog, I highly recommend you spend some time there.  You will really be inspired.

on-the-flySo, here’s my creation.  I liked it so much I made several for my March “guy” cards.  I used On the Fly by Stampin’ Up which is a newly retired set.  The images are colored and then clear embossed which really makes the colors pop.  It was a lot of fun to make and I can’t wait to try another one.

Supplies:  Stamps:  On the Fly;  Paper:  Baja Breeze, Apricot Appeal, Night of Navy, PTI White; Ink: Baja Breeze, Apricot Appeal, Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy, Stazon Jet Black; Accessories: Brayer, Versamark marker, Fine Detail Clear embossing powder, Heat Gun, Cuttlebug numbers, SU! Markers, White gel Pen, Black fine tip marker, Sponge, Ticket corner punch, photo Corner punch, Post it notes.

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!!

Bold and Bright Birthday – CC204

cc204-boldly-and-brightly-goWhat a busy January!  We have had very cold weather, snow, ice and lots of wintry mix (what is that anyway?).     But, that didn’t stop me from traveling a couple of hours on MLK Monday for a day of stamping with my sweet, great friends Lisa, Leisa and Cleo.  What a fun, fun day we had!  Great food and great conversation.  We got a little stampin’ done too….

But, today is what I’m all about right now- in particular the very, very challenging Color Combo that Julie Buhler chose for us.  Tempting Turquoise, Gable Green, Pink Passion and Lovely Lilac.  All from the Bold Brights collection and let me tell, these ain’t my favorites.  I was really challenged and finally decided to take Sharon’s (notimetostamp) advice and just Stamp Simply.  So here it is.  I managed to get all the colors in and focused on my favorite of the four- Tempting Turquoise.  I clear embossed the flowers to give it a little pop.

Supplies:  Stamps:  Embrace Life; Paper:  PTI White, Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac; Ink:  Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise, YoYo Yellow, Pink Passion, PTI Dark Chocolate;  Accessories:  SU! Markers, Turquoise GG Ribbon, Dimensionals, Clear EP, Heat Tool, Versamark Marker;

Hope you are staying warm.

Many blessings,  Diane
