I'm also looking forward to seeing all the ladies in my Big Shot club tonight.  Tonight, they will be making 3 different cards using a variety of Big Shot dies.

I love how this card turned out. It used the Inspired by Nature stamp set, the Butterfly die and the Texturz plates.  I created the bullrush ( I think that is what they are called) with the slot punch. The greeting is from the On your Birthday stamp set. I hope you like it also!!!

Taylored Expressions #69

Hello my friends,

Last night, I had a chance to play along with Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #69. This was a fun sketch to work on. 

I decided to look through my stamp sets and find a stamp set that I have not used in awhile.  I decided to use Upsy Daisy as this is a great set for any occasion. I just love the silhouette of flowers.


Recipe: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, and Tangerine Tango, Upsy Daisy, Scallop Border Punch, and Tangerine Tango ink.

I will be sad to see this year's In-colours retire at the end of June, but I have to say that I have not really used Tangerine Tango alot. It's one of those colours that you either like or don't!!!

Tomorrow I will be showing you my super cute project that I have been working on. Can't wait to show you as it's a great idea for this time of year.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,


S'more anyone???

Happy Monday my friends,

I'm working on a super cute project that I hope to show you in the next few days. This project was design by my friend Heather Summers for Ustamp. Ustamp is a great online class that features over 20 projects. As soon as I saw this cute project, I just knew that I had to make one. 

Here is a card that I made using the super cute stamp set Under the Star's.  If this stamp set doesn't make the Last Chance list (new name for the Retired list), then I will be order this set for sure.  Right now, I'm just borrowing my friends. Thanks Katie!!

This card was designed by Heather and I just changed the colour scheme. GRRREAT....Mr. Grizzle is going to steal my yummy S'mores!!!


Recipe: Under the Stars stamp set, Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel card stock and ink, Key Tag Punch, 1 3/8 square punch, and 1 1/4 square punch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

I have looked at this stamp set many times in the catalogue as I think it's so cute, but have never purchased it. I borrowed Under the Stars from my friend, so that I can make some cards with it. I might have to get this one if it's not on the Last Chance List. What is the Last Chance's the new name for the Retiring List of stamp sets. This list along with the retiring accessories list will be out on June 1. Only 10 more days to see what products are on list!!! Once they are gone, they are gone for good!!!
