Retired Set #1…

Okay, let’s not number them… lets call them by name.  Which in this case would be *drum roll please* Flower Fancy.  Here is one of the many cards that I created with Flower Fancy:DSC_0224


I love this set for watercoloring and two step stamping!  Here is the set: (excuse the bad picture, I went to take another one and my battery died)DSC_0225








So… I’m selling off all of my retired sets (you can see the full list to the left).  The discounted price is 20% off the catalog price. But you save so much more.  When you place a current order (which means AWESOME current product) you pay shipping and tax… with these sets there is a flat rate of $3.00 for the shipping and NO tax (in the USA) so…  you are actually saving more like 38.6%.  I *hope* to post a retired set and a sample card two to three times a week!  First one to contact me to purchase it gets it!  They have 12 hours to pay for it (via PayPal) or it goes to the next in line!  Fancy Flower is regularly priced at $36.95 ($44.14 w/ shipping and tax here) your sale price $29.56!!!!!!  Call, text, email… first reply-first to buy!  Only one available!  All items are gently used but in great condition and come from a smoke free home!

Oh and you get the sample card with your new stamp set!

Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad June Blog Hop!

Welcome! If you are joining me from Patricia T’s blog, I hope you enjoyed what she created. I am so proud to be part of a great group of ladies that are seriously talented!

This month I wanted to focus on Father’s Day! As a family with 4 kiddos (9, 5, 2, and 7 months) I think it is uber important to take the time to honor Mark for being an awesome Daddy! So, I started by creating this card…

DSC_0204Now, I don’t usually dream about stamps… okay I do, but don’t tell anyone! This card came to me in a dream although in a birthday card format, but when I sat down at my stampin’ table I *HAD* to use the concept! So, with that this card was born!

I added a spot of whisper white paper for the kids to sign (although the two oldest will probably want to make their own cards.DSC_0208 I used markers to color directly on the stamp, huffed and stamped! You’ll notice that I had to alter the stamp “I dig you” to “we”.


Now onto his gift. A few years back (2009 to be exact) I made Mark a 12x12 scrapbook page in Old Olive with December 2009 lettering (using the Big Shot) and then each of the kids inked up their hands in versamark and we stamped their hands, we added white embossing powder and heat set and put in a shadow box frame. I’ve been wanting to do this again now that a) they have grownDSC_0211 and b) we have 4 now! But their hands barely fit last time, so I got to thinkingDSC_0209! Here is what I came up with. I was not able to get Addison’s done yet, but her’s will be heat embossed using the same MDS created background and Melon Mambo embossing powder! These will be put in frames and hung together! I found document frames (8.5 x 11) at the local dollar tree! I hope this inspires you to create something with your kids for this upcoming Father’s Day! If you have any questions about the projects show, please put it in a comment below, I read each and every one!
