I used the Stamparatus and a template to create the “wreath” with even placement of leaves.  You can do a search for “stamparatus wreath template” and find several different ones. I followed directions for creating the template here.

Some leaves were stamped  with full strength ink and some were stamped a second time without re-inking the stamp.  I love this color combination: Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green. It’s bright, fun, and perfect for summer, don’t you think?

Night Sky with Brusho

When my daughter was here a couple weeks ago, she saw a card I made using the Brusho Colour Crystals and wanted to try her hand at it and create a night sky, complete with moon and stars.

This is the card we made during her “private lesson” with me.  What a thrill for me to be able to share my passion and stamp with my daughter!

Stamp Set – Waterfront (moon), Night in Bethlehem (stars)
Cardstock – Basic Black, Shimmer White, Silver Foil
Ink – Versamark with Silver Embossing Powder
Accessories – Brusho Colour Crystals, Stampin’ Spritzer, Celebrate You Thinlits, Big Shot, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Snail Adhesive

And here is a bookmark using a piece of the night sky backgound.  The sentiment is from the retired stamp set “So Many Shells”.

Share stamping with a friend.  You might be amazed at the number of people who are interested in expressing their creativity.  Give them a chance to say “yes” and join you for a stamping session.

If you aren’t ready to introduce them to stamping yourself,  I’d love to have you invite them to join you at one of my classes!

Summer Flowers with Brusho

My daughter was visiting from California last week and fell in love with the Brusho background she saw on a couple of cards I’ve made in the past. When she asked if she could make some cards with Brusho, I immediately got started!

Here are a couple of cards we created together.

Supplies for this card are the same as above except cardstock was changed to Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, and Lovely Lipstick.

These cards are great cards for many occasions; engagement, wedding, birthday, friendship and more.

It’s so much fun crafting with my daughter!  If she lived closer, we would become a papercrafting duo for sure.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Stamping!
