wpid-20150919_004953_wm.jpg  Here are just a few more cards I made with the hello life stamp sets which will be available until the end of September.   I had a bit more of the retired buzz & bumble paper left, & I wanted to make some masculine cards.  I really like how versatile these stamps are!  If you’d like one or more of these sets, place your order before they retire on Wednesday.

Buzz & Bumble Cards

Buzz & Bumble Cards

I have really been “busy as a bee” trying to consistently use up my stash to make room for all of the new papers I want from our new Annual Inspirations Idea Book! I’ve had fun making cards for the Sisterhood Bazaar that is coming up THIS weekend in Fortville.

Since the warm colors in retired Buzz & Bumble feel like fall to me, that has been my paper choice the last several days. Here are a few cards using using the stickers

that coordinated with Buzz & Bumble.  wpid-20150911_1608370_wm.jpg

Hope you will be able to “buzz by” & see me this weekend at the Sisterhood Bazaar!

I had a lot of fun updating some of my retired stash with the #ctmhHelloLife stamp sets. In preparing cards for the  Sisterhood Bazaar where I’ll have a booth on Sept.19th, I was in the mood for fall. So, I pulled out my retired Olivia & Flirty papers. I also was anxious to use Paper Garden, the September Stamp of the Month set. 

wpid-img_20150904_150142_wm.jpgOn the  flowers & leaves I opted to use the Rock and Roll Technique to add some dimension & interest.  I was really pleased with the final results, & I wanted to share the video from CTMH to show you how to do this cool technique yourself. Just  follow the link below.

Let me know if you have used the Rock and Roll Technique. I’d love to see your artwork.  Feel free to join my September Gathering if you’d like to order any of the trendy & versatile Hello Life Stamp sets or the lovely Paper garden September stamp of the month set. Or contact me to host your own gathering & earn them for free!

Throwback Thursday Card

wpid-20150831_113316.jpg  I made this cute card back at my second CTMH convention.  I used the retired My Acrylix stamp set, Pun Fun for the focal piece. I colored the turtle image with our ShinHan Twin Touch Markers.  The clouds & balloon were cut out with our Cricut Artiste Cartridge.  Some retired bling, buttons & some accordian folded shimmer trim  finish off the card nicely. I have this retired stamp set for sale under my Retired Stash Sale.  Check it out to see what other fun puns come with the set.
