This is a Post it Note holder that was made by my friend Dawn Bristlin. It uses the retired stamp set Scentsational Season with the matching Framelits.

MANic Monday

Welcome to this week's MANic Monday.
This card uses the 'brayer the embossing folder' technique. This picture doesn't show very well, but I brayered the embossing folder with Crumb Cake ink and then used my Crumb Cake marker to enhance the bark of the trees. I also stamped the little deer from the retired set Forest Friends. The card base is Mossy Meadow. Hope that you liked today's card. Stop back tomorrow for TWO-fer Tuesday. Until then....HAPPY STAMPING!

Two-Fer Tuesday

Welcome to Two-Fer Tuesday.
These two cards are from the You're Presents stamp set. The top one also includes Happy Birthday from Age Awareness. I love this set for it's versatility. The birthday card is so 'festive' with the sequins. And the Joy card is so holiday with the colors of Mint Macaron and Cucumber Crush. The words are stamped with the new Basic Black Archival Ink. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

3-D Thursday

Welcome to 3-D Thursday, where I will share a 3-D item.
This is a paper bag treat from the September Paper Pumpkin kit. Don't you just love it? I think it is so cute. Paper Pumpkin kits come with everything you need to make that month's project (except adhesive). This one included the paper bags, the fringies (is that a word?), the die cut tags, the straws and the stamp set. There was enough product to make 8 of these cute little bags. We don't get any Trick or Treaters, but we did have a 4 year old move onto our road about 3 months ago, so he got this treat for Halloween.

Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow will be Festive Friday, so check back. Until then...HAPPY STAMPING!

Way Back Wednesday

Welcome to Way Back Wednesday where I take a retired stamp set and use it with current product. I don't know about you, but I purchase new 'toys' and then seem to use only the new things until they retire, then they end up on my 'retired' shelf and I very rarely go back to them. I LOVED them when I purchased them, but...
These are some Christmas tags that I made using some retired stamps along with current stamps and products. The Joy tag on the left uses some retired Washi tape, a doily, and the word Joy and Oval from the retired Joyous Season set. I used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch and the Banners Framelits to create the tag. The tag in the middle uses the Festive Flurry retired set, the Snow Place current set and the Triple Corner punch. The tag on the right uses the Triple Corner punch, the snowman is from the retired set Best of Snow. The words are from Petite Pairs.

I hope that you enjoyed this Way Back Wednesday. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for 3-D Thursday. Until then...HAPPY STAMPING!

Two-Fer Tuesday

Welcome to Two-Fer Tuesday. These two cards are totally different, yet they use the same stamp set, You've Got This and the same In Color, Mint Macaron.  The one on the left has a Mint Macaron base, a Whisper White layer with the background stamped in Mint Macron. It also has 1/8" Silver ribbon. The one on the right uses a Basic Black base, a Mint Macaron layer. The Whisper White layer uses Sahara Sand for the background and the 1 1/4" Burlap ribbon. To me, the one on the left is more feminine and the one on the left could be masculine. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for Way Back Wednesday. Until then, HAPPY STAMPING!

MANic Monday

It's MANic Monday! This card uses the stamp set Wetlands. I love that the goose is the focal point. And the clean black and white color scheme just makes it more interesting! You could change the sentiment for just about any occasion. And, if you changed the colors, it could also be a feminine card. So, what do you think? Are you ready to start stamping cards for the men in your life?
Thanks for stopping by today. Check back tomorrow for the Two-Fer Tuesday. Until next time, HAPPY STAMPING!
