Transitioning Into Fall

Appreciative. Lucky. Excited. Loved. Thankful. That's what I feel when someone places an order with me. This colorful thank you card was sent out to my fabulous customers who placed an order with me this month. I really do appreciate them! I used Wonderfall and Yippee-Skippee stamp sets along with Calypso Coral, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit and Soft Suede colors. I consider this my 'slow transition into fall' card. Can't wait for autumn to officially start, it's my favorite time of year! Happy Stamping!

Feel Better

A fitting card for a dear, sweet friend to let her know I was thinking of her as she heals. This get well card highlights the stamp sets: You're My Hero, Hello Lovely and Sassy Salutations. I chose to use a fun color combination of Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White. Feel better soon Mary, I'm sending happy thoughts your way! Happy Stamping!

We Interrupt Your Stamping For A Tasty Treat

At my last Downline Team Gathering I made a dessert that got rave reviews! I thought I would share it here with you all so you too can enjoy a tasty treat!

Fast Fruity Delight
This recipe is courtesy of Kraft Foods.
3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) Jell-O Raspberry Flavor Gelatin
2 cups frozen raspberries
1 cup thawed Cool Whip whipped Topping
Add boiling water to gelatin mix in large bowl; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add berries; stir until gelatin starts to thicken. Stir 1/2 cup gelatin mixture into Cool Whip with whisk until well blended; spoon into 4 dessert dishes. Cover remaining with remaining gelatin mixture. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until set.  {Note: I made mine into slightly smaller portions and got 6 cups out of the recipe, but 4 cups would be ideal size.}
Tune back into tomorrow for a new creative project! Happy Stamping!

Sketch Challenge 2

Thought I would get some creative juices flowing and play along with the Sketch Challenge over at today. When I saw this layout, I immediately decided I was going to use the new Wetlands stamp set. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set! It was the first one I had to HAVE out of the new catalog.

What do you think? I am really proud of how it turned out. It's so nice when the idea in your head actually turns out on paper! Colors I used were Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizazz, Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler. I also used the Gorgeous Grunge set as well to spice up the background. Happy Stamping!

Can't Help But Smile

There are certain cards I create that make me smile. This is one of them. I love the vibrant colors and the combination of them all together, the use of multiple stamp sets that seem to "just go together", and the simple but fun layout. Oh yes, this card simply just makes me smile. I highlighted the use of the Mosaic Madness set and coordinating punch and the You're Amazing set. Both of which, I have found myself using more and more each week. I hope it makes you smile too! Happy Stamping!
