Design Your Own Stamp

Sometimes you just need to design your own image to meet your needs. This is where the SU "My Ditigal Studio" is an wonderful tool! I've had this style of card rattling around in my head for a while, but I never find an image that I loved enough to pull it off. Enter MDS! This is several "ditigal" stamps layered upon one another and printed onto Shimmery White cardstock. I left this card very clean so that the main image pops right off at you and takes center stage. I love it when a plan comes together!!!

New Stamp Envy

I'm trying very hard to be patient, my pre-order of SU! goodness is scheduled to come in on Wednesday May 9th. Guess who is working late on May 9th and May 10th? Guess who has a mandatory all staff meeting from 8:30 - 2:30 on Friday May 11th? Yep, sucks doesn't it? However, next Saturday May 12th I plan to spend the day with my Michigan Mingler pals! I know that will make up for not being able to fondle my new toys for three whole days! In the meantime look at this, it's a darling little six pocket "booklet" that would be great for small photos or little notes!

Looking for something in white

I often hear people lament the "flimsy-ness" of Whisper White cardstock, and while I will willingly admit I'm one of those people that would kiss Shelli Gardners feet if they brough us a heavier weight pure white cardstock, please don't sell Whisper White short! Yes it is thinner, and yes sometimes it does take a few extra minutes for even water based ink to dry on it, but the sharpness and clarity of an image on Whisper White is beautiful! My April class revolved around Whisper White and one or two other colors, I cannot claim originality for the Blushing Bride and the Poppy Parade cards, but I sincerely appreciate the brilliant minds that did think to!

Mixed Bunch and a Blossom Punch

I had to jump on the bandwagon with this set and matching punch! One of my customers (and a sweet friend) actually purchased, and asked me to plan a class around it. Here's two of the cards we did, hope you likey!
