Postage Due and some news!



I am loving the new stamp set, "Postage Due".  As you have seen in my previous post, you can use it for a fun, feminine card and you can also use it for a more masculine look, such as the card pictured above.  The color combo is Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake.  Love this new In Color triple stitched satin ribbon as well.

So you probably noticed that I have not been posting that often over the past few weeks.  That is because Greg and I have been getting his house in Angels Camp ready for Natalie & I to live there.  He gave me a wonderful space in his office, so I now have my very first craft room and and so excited to make it exactly what I have always wanted!  When I put the final touches on it, I will post pics!  We hope to be in permanently very soon, but I will also be keeping the rental in Turlock and traveling back and forth between Angels Camp and Turlock until the end of the year. 

On another note: Ruby and I have scheduled our first class after coming back from summer break.  It will be on Saturday, September 8th and we have called it "Fall Back into Stamping".  We will be featuring fall and Halloween projects.  For more info, go here:



We will also be announcing a very special class for October, so stay tuned!
Until next time ~

Welcome to Paris!


I created this card at Simply Stampin' Day....an event where the crafty divas in my circle of friends gathered to create and hang out.  I busted out my new goodies and couldn't wait to ink up the new stamp set, "Postage Due".  I thought it would compliment the ever popular "Artistic Etchings" set and I was right!  I love the clean and simple design of this card and the color combo is fun!  Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black.  The red and white polka dotted paper is from the new Polka Dot Parade DSP and I love it!  The die cuts are 3 of the largest image in the Apothecary Accents Framelits, 2 cut in turquoise, 1 cut in white.  The postage stamps were stamped and then punched with the postage stamp punch and then popped up on dimensionals to add some detail.  I topped off the card with Basic Black Scalloped Polka Dot Ribbon, a Tempting Turquoise button from the Brights Collections and a Happy Birthday sentiment punched with the Modern Label punch and mounted on an element punched with the Scalloped Oval Punch.  I just love this card and it might be a contender for this month's hostess gathering...

Until next time ~

Butterflies for Jennifer...


Here is a card that I quickly created last month for my boss, Jennifer.  It was her 50th birthday and I wanted to make something bright and cheery so I grabbed my new Floral District DSP, Elegant Butterfly Punch and Lucky Limeade, Whisper White and Raspberry Ripple card stock.  I also punched the squares of DSP with the scalloped square punch.  I think it came out pretty cute, don't you?

Until next time ~

Papaya Collage Tag Set


This was my project at our recent Stamp Tramp Appreciation Night.  It features the new Papaya Collage Stamp Set and showcased the new 2012-2014 In Colors: Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals.  We cut the tags with the Two Tags Die and the pocket with the Petite Pocket Die.  This project is perfect as a little add on for a gift. 



Until next time ~
