Winged Celebration!

It's hard to believe the sun is already down here in North Texas ... I am SO ready for the longer days of Spring.  Gray can be a nice color, but Winter's gray + cloudy days just need to mooooove on.   😉

Seems I've needed so many different types of cards to send lately!  Sharing a simple celebration card today, in pretty subtle colors to complement its upcoming recipient.  That's one of the really special parts of card making .. being able to customize or tailor a card to be uniquely suited for the one who will open the envelope!  The card's inspiration is from the FS523 'featured stamper' challenge at SCS this week, spotlighting 'AnniePanda'.  

Behind the dragonfly cutouts is a bit of the Falling in Love designer paper collection.  During the Summers, I'm blessed to see a couple of dragonfly varieties visiting here.  I adore their delicate wings, filled with an amazing shimmery quality.  Thus, it's the perfect time to add some Wink of Stella for that glitzy sparkle.   

If you're becoming a fan of this Dragonfly Dreams bundle, it's part of the Occasions catalog.  By adding just another $5 to your order, you'll already earn TWO Sale-A-Bration choices!  It's really that easy to add two favorite SAB freebies to your stampy zone!  Please let me know if I can help in any way.  I'm easy to find and happy to help.

Tradition? Texture? Dimension? All Here!

Today's card has a bit of the traditional, plus texture, and one of my personal faves ... dimension! 

Even though there are bazillions of ways to share a greeting for February 14 ... there's always the traditional "Happy Valentine's Day" being said or written.  I love this pretty font, too!

Texture fans will enjoy the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions embossing folder.  It's from the new Occasions catalog, along with the 27-piece Sealed with Love stamp featured today.  Now the stamp set can purchased singly, or it's also available in a bundle!  The coordinating Love Notes Framelits Dies include 14 fun pieces ... lots of stamps + dies in this combo.

Inside there's room for a combo of two stamps alongside the Rose Red contrast strip down the side.  I love the way the open hearts in the border die allow the Rose Red to peek through to the front.

Need your own copy of the Occasions catalog?  Please contact me! In the meantime, feel free to download it from the right side column here on my blog.  

This is one of the stamping projects I'll share with my team this weekend as we gather for some stamping joys.   Hope you find some ink + paper time as well!

Hey! You're a Good Egg!

Hey there, stampy friends!   I'd like to introduce you to one of the cutest chicks in my stampin' collection.  She's one of the delightful chickens in the new Hey, Chick stamp set.  Psssst!  This stamp set is in one of the FREE items available during Sale-A-Bration 2017!

The card sketch is from this week's Fab Friday Challenge, FabFri103.
 Isn't it perfect for the simple chicken yard setting for this cute hen?

Stamping History Blah-Blah:  Before we started using patterned papers in routine card making, many stampers like myself were so happy when card-front-sized background stamps became available.  This card reminded me of my earlier stamper-self ... loving my little collection of background stamps and using them on a majority of my creations at the time.  Were you stamping "back" then?   I've featured the Hardwood background stamp for the feeling of hen's chicken house today.  How did I color Mama Hen?  With the new Watercolor Pencils found on pg. 24 of the new Occasions catalog!
