Flowers and Sunshine

Summer is in full swing and it's already JULY!!! How does that happen so quickly! Time flies when you're having fun, right?

Today I say farewell to my amazing, talented and loving Stampendous Design Team family. I will miss being part of this wonderful team (but not the deadlines so much!). A huge "Thank You" to Fran and the Stampendous team for placing so much faith in my work all these years, I truly feel blessed to have been a part of your creative family.  Most of all, to our utterly amazing, outstanding, lovely and positive Laura, what would I have done without your encouragement and love throughout it all! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such an inspiration to me.

I thought this beautiful Mum Blossoms stamp, paired with the lovely sentiment from the Cling Coneflowers set, was the perfect combination to bid adieu to my team family. I will keep posting and linking to the Stampendous group when I can. Love you all!  XOXOXOXOXOXOXO, Louise

Hello Sunshine!

This week the theme for the Stampendous Design Team is  "A Sunny Hello!". This darling little Wooly Lamb stamp is gone from the Stampendous website, but it is available from other online retailers. I think it makes an adorable card appropriate for several occasions! Think baby, Easter, 1st birthday, spring...see, many occasions!

Instructions

Step 1:  Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of turquoise cardstock in half to form a top fold A2 card
Step 2:  Place the Damask stencil face down (so you can't see the stencil number) on the large platform of a die cut machine, place a  4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock over the stencil (I like to mist my paper with a little water first), add a rubber embossing mat, two clean cutting plates, and put the stack through the machine
Step 3:  Remove the embossed image from the stencil, trim to 4" x 5 1/4", adhere to the front of the card
Step 4:  Stamp the Wooly Lamb on a 2 1/2" x 3" piece of Mixed Media White Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, color with Copic markers
Step 5:  Adhere the Wooly Lamb on a 2 3/4" x 3 1/4" turquoise mat, then to the front of the card
Step 6:  Add a piece of  May Arts scalloped ribbon tape across the bottom of the Wooly Lamb mat
Step 7: Stamp the sentiment from the Spring Sentiments set on a piece of white cardstock, trim close, mat on a turquoise mat
