First up we have Christmas inside sentiments John 8:12. I scored around the sentiment after I stamped it out. I had a scrap piece of basic grey eskimo kisses paper that I used for the side panel. Seperated it with some ribbons called Spruce needle and Red Velvet from the CDS ribbon collections and finished it off with a few pearls for accent.
This next card is casing an older card I had made when I first started stamping. This new set is the Christmas inside sentiments Psalm 115:15. I used the christmas basic grey paper called wassil. The spellbinders labels one and seven with a few gold brads for accent.
This rich and pretty image is from the new A Season of Wonder set. I am really taken with this set and how it is drawn. I went with a rich and burgundy color for this one. I added some scallop edge along the panel underneath and a burgundy satin ribbon.
A much softer feel to this card and I combined A Season of Wonder with another new sentiment called Our Savior's Scriptures. I used the pastel copics to color in the image with the sentiment stamped over it. A few pearls to finish it off.

Well I am finally done canning green beans and just about all my other canning. The green beans take the longest I think because you have to pick every 2 days and can once a week. ugh. It is worth it the rest of the year. The only thing I have left is stewed tomatoes then done. YES... I am really looking forward to that day. The puppy is doing so good and he is growing super fast. It amazes me the things he has learned already. We have learned a lot also, like don't leave your socks on the floor. crap.... I just bought those for school! I will hopefully have pictures later this week, canning takes over my world this time of year. Glad you stopped in today!

Dawn showed me this wonderful site for a octagon teapot that I have here. This is a rosemary teapot and inside I have a few little bags of fresh herb tea for my friend who loves tea. I stamped the rosemary all around in 2 step stamping for a shadow of the main stamp. I used some gold trim sticker that I had in my stash for the lid and handle. The tea bag tag has the sentiment along with a few pearls. This was rather difficult to make but I do like how it turned out. I know she will love it also when she sees the tea inside.
Be sure to check out the last sneaks from the girls today:
Hope you have a fabulous weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

My mouth dropped on the ground when I saw this Sunflowers set. I can't be more excited for such a cool sunflower. The tiny ladybug on the leaf even is super fun. I am going to show you 2 cards with this set today. This first one I kept simple as I had a friends daughter over and she is wanting to get into stamping. She asked me to show her some easy sketches and some cute tricks that won't cost her a lot. Being 13 she really doesn't have a steady income other than mom and dad. LOL So ofcourse I had to show her how to score her borders, I mean what stamper doesn't score every border. bawhahaha Anyways I used Copic Collections Buttercup, Tiger Lily and Fields. I had a scrap paper from another card so I scalloped the edge and pierced it for a side panel. Then I used my fabulous lemon crochet trim. Added a few brads and voila. Now I do have some sparkle on the leaves petals but the camera just wouldn't pick it up in the photo.
Next I have used one of the smaller Sunflowers and sentiment from the set. I like this spellbinders label 7 and I use it a lot with sentiments I know but it looks so good. I used Copic collections Daffodil and Fields with a silver finishing touches architectural brad to tie off the layered ribbons.
Remember the release party is tonight! I won't be at the party so have a great time!

I went with the game Duck Duck Goose, in this case Geese from the Swan Lake set. I kept this very simple with just a little bit of crochet trim and a heart ribbon slider. A little bit of sparkle in the top foliage image and that is it. These little ducks just make me smile when I stamp them. I am strange I know....
