Timeless Elegance

Hello everyone! I've really missed stamping and posting but it was so hectic with the big move. I still have quite a bit of unpacking to do and haven't been able to find many supplies and weird little items necessary to get a decent card together and get a good photo of it. I had to take this one with my cell phone since I am still missing my battery charger for my good camera (it's probably in a box with my Kindle somewhere).

I haven't had the chance to use my new purchases from the new catalog yet but really wanted to do something with the new SU Timeless Elegance designer paper. This stuff is so pretty!! Went pretty basic and plain, the time was with all of the coloring so I kept the rest plain with just a bit of black and white baker's twine. Will be back with more as I uncover more of my stamping/crafting goodies.

So many changes

It is so hard to believe that this day is here already, I don't know where all of the time went. My Billy graduates on Tuesday and will be attending Western Washington University in the fall. My emotions are all over the place.  For his graduation picture I chose a modified version of the sample in the mini catalog using the Stampin' Up! Class of 2015 set on Night of Navy cardstock with pewter embossing.

All Stampin' Up! supplies were used for this card. Butterfly framelits die with Tea Shoppe retired paper, Vanilla base, Tangerine Tango accents. Embellished with Crisp Cantaloupe twine, naturals ribbon, button and flowery embossing folder from the newest mini catalog.

The Gifts of Spring

For the Just Add Ink challenge #255 for using eggs or ovals. I used the retired Stampin' Up! set The Gifts of Spring, colored in blendable markers. Painted Blooms paper on Pool Party cardstock with ruffled Coastal Cabana ribbon. Non SU sentiment.
I had a request for a closer view of the acrylic photo box frame stamp storage as seen in the shelf on my previous post. These can be stacked very easily and hold quite a lot of wood mounted stamps.

Spring Organizing

Still working on getting my studio into a more organized space... Today I alphabetized all of my SU cling stamps, organized my completed cards in the three bottom drawer units (birthday, thank you, Christmas and other holidays, thank you, and blank all occasion). The bottom shelf holds wheels, Nesties, paint brushes. Next shelf up are Sizzix dies and Big Shot plates in the baskets, miscellaneous stamps are in acrylic picture frames from Michael's.  Third shelf: more completed cards to be sorted later, punches and stamp cases, continued on next shelf up. Finally more wheels, plastic cases on top hold Christmas tags that I like to make throughout the year, glitters and embossing powders, ink refills, and some nested vintage canisters that I found on ebay.

Happy Watercolor

I was working on a project today using Stampin' Up!'s Painted Blooms designer paper from the Occasions mini and had a few extra scraps left over to create this super quick card. Banner framelits die with Happy Watercolor stamp set with Whisper White, Basic Black, and Daffodil Delight card stocks. Gingham ribbon is retired.

Butterfly Basics

New Stampin' Up! supplies in the house today! Butterfly Basics stamp set and matching framelits dies. Popped up the butterfly (stamped in Cantaloupe and edges with Coral) and the sentiment. Whisper White card stock was stamped with leaves stamp in Olive and Garden Green, embossed with new floral folder from the Occasions mini, edges sponged with Saffron. Washi tape from SU also. The antennae are a florist pearl stem from wedding craft supplies.
