Happy Tuesday!! I am so glad to have a card to share with you today. In fact, I have two cards and some awesome artwork to share! Over the weekend I got to have a friend and her daughter over to visit the stamp room and we had such fun. While my little friend was busy coloring, so were the moms! I finally got to play with some of the things in my Occasions Catalog order and the first order of business was the Love is Kindness set. I love this set!!
I pulled out my new Pink Pirouette Blendabilities and combined them with Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities to create this fun bouquet. Just a little gray added onto the newspaper part of the image for depth and Old Olive on the leaves and stems. I cut the image out with my Ovals Framelits and then backed them with a Tea Lace Doily. I popped on a Silver Metallic Mini Clothespin and tied on some Basic Gray Baker’s Twine (left from a Paper Pumpkin Kit – these kits are a gift that keeps on giving!).
My friend Ani colored the second image and pulled out a button from my stash and tied on Baker’s Twine. I LOVE her take on this too! Oh…and she had never colored with Blendabilities before and is a new stamper. These markers really are great no matter what your experience. For those of you who love cooking as much as stamping, make sure you check out Ani’s blog, Cook on a Whim. I definitely think I get the better end of the deal when she shares her cooking with my family!! A little coloring in exchange for Gumbo, homemade cheesecake, Peach Bourbon BBQ Sauce….just to name a few.
And this is what her daughter worked on while we were stamping away. Hmmm…do you see more new stamps?!!! I have some fun ideas with these!! I think Miss Ava did a fabulous job, don’t you?! For the record, the boys (my two and Ani’s son) decided they needed some guy time and were watching a movie. Their loss!! *smile*
Now you may have noticed that I have a new look today. Over the last few days I have been updating the blog. Sorry if you have come over during any of the construction!! I still have a few things to adjust but I think that I’m almost done. I would LOVE to hear what you think!! To make it easier for you to follow me, I have added more social media buttons in my sidebar to include one for Bloglovin (email followers will need to click over to see them). Also, I have an easier e-mail link there too. I hope this makes coming to Stampin’ on the Fly a more intuitive and friendly experience!
