With Andy & Madison away at camp this week it has allowed Steve and I a GREAT opportunity to just have some time together. We miss the kids and look forward to their return on Friday, but it has been so nice to just hang out with each other.
Since Steve doesn't quite appreciate stamping the way I do, I haven't stamped the last couple of days, opting instead to do things that we BOTH enjoy.
So, today I am posting a card that I made a few days ago. It uses the Inspired By Nature stamp set and the recently retired Bitty Basics Level 1 Hostess set. It also uses some Designer Series Paper (name unknown) from my grab bag. I love using the Horizontal Slot Punch to make the grass into cattails. I used Old Olive Ink and just stamped the grass twice, which is what made the lighter color of grass....SUPER EASY.
This is an example of a CAS (Clean And Simple) card. On March 14 I will be offering a Clean and Simple Stamp Class. So, for those of you that think stamping takes too much time or is too complicated....this class will be for YOU!! I am also offering this class for FREE to anyone placing an order of $25 or more (before tax & shipping) of current Stampin' Up! products. I will be posting more information about this class as the date gets closer.
Also, since I have had so much fun with the grab bag that I purchased at Gloria's, I have made some grab bags of my own!! I will be selling these at my monthly stamp club on March 9 and at my CAS class on March 14. I had fun putting these together....I think that whoever buys them will have fun seeing the what's in there!
Find some time for stamping!!!
