Home of the Free....

Happy Memorial Day!  Hope everyone not only had a great time with family and friends, but took a few minutes to remember, and be thankful for, those who have served, and still serve to keep America the Home of the Free!

In honor of Memorial Day, I created this patriotic tribute in a card:

The stars and "fireworks" like I call them....are created by punching a strip of cardstock and then using Distress Ink (Festive Berries, here) to stencil onto the white cardstock.  I used one of the Just Imagine Punches (#301 and you can find it HERE).  The papers used are from the Pink Paislee Sweet Liberty collection.

Thanks for stoppin' by today!  Have a wonderful holiday!

New Stamps...Means Playtime!

Hi everyone!  It's been a whirlwind few weeks....we've got a new High School graduate in our house!

So proud he's headed to the University of Iowa school of engineering!

And now that all the graduation hoopla is behind us, I was so excited to have some playtime with some brand new stamps!  Some of the gorgeous new background stamps from Just Rite!

My first share is using the new Woodgrain Background stamp:

The border was created by stamping around the edges with the woodgrain stamp to create a frame.  I layered up papers from Photo Play to create the center panel.  The tree was stamped using the Multi-Step Seasonal Trees (I used different shades of Distress Ink tapped directly onto the stamp) and the sentiment and it's border are stamps from the Congrats Card Basics set.  The border and sentiment was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers.  Trendy Twine and enamel dots finish this one off. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  More of the new stamps coming up, so stop back soon!
