Paint Play Sunflower Card + Stamp of the Month Club Card Kit Reveal

I'm going to make your want a stamp set that you didn't even give a second look at in the new catalog. It's called Paint Play. And trust me -- just go ahead and order it now! I try not to make big promises, but I really do think you're going to love this new set after you see what I've created with it! So here we go! The first card I designed for my August Stamp of the Month Club card kit is a sunflower. Stamp the center in Soft Suede in the corner of the cardstock and then stamp the "leaf" image as flower petals in Crushed Curry ink.

The Ticket Tear border and the Old Olive striped cardstock are actually glued to the inside of the card. I  cut 1" off the front of the Crushed Curry cardstock. The sunflower image is attached to the card front and hangs over the edge, where you can see the other layers showing from the inside of the card.

Carols of Christmas: Deck the Halls Card

Earlier this month, we had our 12th annual Demonstrator Training event here in Champaign. We used to have it in the spring (Spring Into Stamping), but with the change in corporate events schedule, we now hold it in the summer (Vacation Stamping School). This year we focused on the Holiday Catalog -- which was just barely in pre-order when we held our event. I promise to share pictures soon. The demonstrations and display boards were amazing!

I demonstrated the Carols of Christmas bundle at Vacation Stamping School. I'm working on a videos for two of the cards, but this sample that I share was a little more straightforward. I used the Be Merry Designer Paper from the Annual Catalog.

Birthday Memories Bunny Card

I don't love to color. I think I just don't have the patience to layer the color just right and my shading never looks as good as I want it to. That's why I love the new Birthday Delivery Suite! The designer paper includes expertly colored images that coordinate with the framelits -- so you can die cut them directly from the paper if you don't want to stamp and color the image yourself. I couldn't resist the adorable bunny to create this birthday card for my daughter Anna, who turned 7 in May. I did fussy cut this one, but there are many other images in the Birthday Memories Designer Paper that can be die cut with the framelits.

First Day of School + Hello Friend Kit Card

My whirlwind summer is coming to an end! After three weeks of moving, packing, cleaning, we have everything in the new house and have closed on the old one. We are still unpacking and organizing, but we are getting there! The kids started back to school on Wednesday, so ready are not, it's time for "normal" schedule! I wish we had a few more days to enjoy the summer, but I have to admit, I am enjoying the quiet house and doing my best to get caught up on everything! Here are my kiddos on the first day of school. This year, they are starting 2nd, 3rd, 7th, and 8th grade. How is that possible!?

Top on my "to do" list is designing the August Stamp of the Month Club and bonus project kits, so watch for those coming soon! Today's card is the thank you card that I sent with last month's project kits. I used the elements in the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Kit to create an alternative design that didn't require heat embossing. I really like the way it turned out!
