Back to stamping – finally!

I've been in my new house now for 17 short days!  There's still a lot to do, but I just had to take the time this morning to create!  My stamping studio is coming along nicely and I'll be adding some final storage units that are due to arrive later today.  I'll be posting pictures of my completed studio soon!  One thing that's very different about my new location is that there isn't a lot of natural light.  I'm in the woods and in the lower level of the house, so taking pictures with good lighting is going to be a challenge!

My card today begins with a bright, fun color scheme — Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Perfect Plum and Pumpkin Pie.  I used the For Everything stamp set for all of the images and the Fabulous Phrases stamp set for the sentiment.  TIP:  This stamp set is "fabulous" for putting together your very own customized saying, especially if you purchase it in clear mount.  Just combine several of the words in the saying onto one clear block and stamp once!  This is a terrific feature of the clear mount system!  Our new Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border is so versatile!  Use complete strips like I did here in Perfect Plum, or tuck them behind a solid piece of card stock to see just the edging like I did here with the Pumpkin Pie edge.  Pumpkin Pie Brads from the Brights Brads collection top off the cute flower centers.

A Word For Everything

The two featured stamps sets in this card are For Everything and A Word for You.  I began thinking that I would use more of the Island Oasis Designer Series Paper but ended up only pulling out the Pumpkin Pie Polka Dot sheet from the packet.  But this gorgeous, summery paper pack did help me get started with a terrific color scheme — Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red and Old Olive.  For some reason, this stamp set really lends itself to 3"x6" cards.  See my Card Kit of the Month which also features For Everything along with Flower Brads.  I stamped a tone-on-tone image on the Rose Red card stock base, then added Old Olive card stock punched with the Eyelet Border Punch.  Next came the polka dot designer paper followed by the main image popped up on lots of Dimensionals.  I used a Silver Mini Library Clip and added just a snip of Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon using a Mini Glue Dot.  A Pumpkin Circle Fire Rhinestone Brad acts as a glitzy center for the flower, and a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter held on with 2-Way Glue Pen gives the butterfly some shine.  Don't you just love the font of the new sayings in A Word For You!  Use both lines of the saying together or simply use a Stampin' Write Marker to highlight just the first line.  This sentiment stamp set is sure to be one of this year's most popular sets.

Want to be able to use just a snip of different ribbons on your card or scrapbook creations?  Here's a great way to get all of the ribbons at a very affordable price!  Check out my RIBBON SHARE and order today!
