Watercolor Therapy

One of my favorite tools to play with in my stamp room is my watercoloring tools.  I love watercoloring and to me its just therapy.  It’s so relaxing.  I’ve been working on some Mother’s Day cards for a freind and I wanted to share a few with you.  My friend is probably wondering where her cards are!   Eeek!  They are all finished now and headed to Mr. Mail Dude tomorrow.

Here For You!

Well sugar biscuts!  I meant to post this much earlier today and the day just got away from me!  I hate it when that happens. 

Anyhoo, here is a fun card made with the Friends 24-7 stamp set.  My stampers in my Stamps in the Mail program are enjoying fun projects using this stamp set.  Here is a little bonus project for them as well as you.  The finished size of this card is 4 x 4. 


Here for you Birdie















Gotta run again… I have piles of work, designs and paper on my desk.  Holy Cow!


Spring Box

I wanted to make something fairly quick this afternoon before I was out the door running errands and I thought about the Scallop Die Cut Box!  It’s been silently speaking to me on my desk.  It really was SCREAMING for attention.  So here is the little creation I came up with.  🙂  Dimensions for this box are approx. 3 3/4 Tall and 2 1/4 wide. 

Scallop Box























The colors alone on this box makes me smile.  In fact I think it skips Spring and jumps straight to Summer.  Oh how I wish SUMMER was HERE!  The box is super easy to put together!   You can see below some of the products I used.  I love the Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper.  Being a Florida girl, this paper is really up my ally.  Not to mention my love for Flamingo’s and any type of birdie!

Pink Flamingo DSP
















Other products used on this box was Really Retro stamp set with its adorable sentiments, Fifth Avenue Floral (isn’t that flower pretty?), dazzling diamonds and Fine Supernova Stampin’ Up! glitter.  I also used the Stampin’ Up! Little Leaves Sizzlet Die cut. 


Happy Thursday!

So much to be Thankful for!

I have been so busy working in my stamp room on MUCH needed things.  I have TONS of thank you cards to make!  I have a list of people who have blessed me over and over again and I just need to shout from the mountain that I am thankful for them.  Since I am scared of climbing that mountain here, I made cards.  ***smile***

I have many many things to share with you over the next few days. So stay tuned.  I think you may like a few of them.  🙂

Petal Pizzaz





















This card uses the Petal Pizzaz stamp set with Baja Breeze and Pacific Point Inks.  I also added a little Real Red into the mix and Iridescent Ice all over the stamped flowers.  The sentiment comes from the Thank You Kindly stamp set.  I stamped it on my NEW Stampin’ Up! Lots of Tags Sizzlet.  I just love this new die cut.  WOW!

Thoughts and Prayers




















This card really doesn’t use anything new and I’m okay with that.  This stamp set Wonderful You is now on the Dormant List.  It’s such a beautiful stamp set.  I have a few friends that have lost precious family members in the past few weeks.  I just want them to know that I am thinking of them. 


My last card I want to share tonight

Thanks My Dear Friend





















This card is super simple, but has a product on it that I am just THRILLED with.  Stampin’ Up! now has Texture Plates for your Big Shot.  WOW!  They are fantastic.  Listen to my warning!!!!  Read the directions on your multipurpose plate so you know how to sandwhich all your goodies when using the texture plates.  Just know, I have tried it the wrong way and everyone on my street heard the loud screams.  My eyeballs are still not in the correct position after almost buggin’ out from the mistake I had made.  It wasn’t pretty my friends.  Really!! 

The card above uses the Stampin’ Up! Texture Plate small dots.  I love it.  It also uses the Stampin’ Up! Lots of Tags under the stamp set,Only Ovals.  It fits it perfectly!  I also used the Chit Chat Rub On’s.  These are my favorite Rub Ons!  There are TONS of sentiments in these Rub ons.   GREAT purchase!

It’s time for me to hit the bed!  Have a super Monday! It’s freezing HERE!

I told you I’m CHATTY!

So………… today…. I got a little caught up in my chatty cathy mode and didn’t take many pictures!  HOWEVER, here is a pic of one of the display boards that I got.
