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.

Simply Wonderful SAB

For this week's Mojo Monday 387 sketch I used all Stampin' Up! supplies. Whisper White and Rich Razzleberry card stocks, Painted Blooms designer paper, Simply Wonderful SAB set, Blackberry Bliss stitched satin ribbon, Vanilla 5/8" flower trim colored with marker, Bird and Branch punch for leaves.

Look what I found!

My desk! It has been buried under an avalanche of stuff for so long I didn't know where to start. I organized my markers and coloring pencils in the drawer to make access easier. Maybe a neater work space will bring back my missing mojo. I have a big Stampin' Up! order coming in today and now I am ready to go! Thanks for hanging in with me in my absence :)
