wednesday March 21 GUI

Will this winter weather ever stop?!? Mother Nature please find your happy place and be inspired by these clean and simple floral cards. I used the set “Done in love” by Angie Blom and Lisa Ariana.
I’ve colored the pansy’s differently in each card to match the patterned paper. Colored pencils and markers were combined for this look.  I will wait to put a sentiment inside until I go to send this out. It would make a great Thankyou or birthday card.
I also added a few sequins for bling. Of course I used my special customer Magnuson stamp for the back again, but you don't need a picture of that three days in a row. I am going to get another custom address stamp for the outside of my envelopes very soon.

First Day of Spring GUI March 20, 2018

Hello Unity Stampers!
  Happy Spring, even if you are still blanketed with snow and freezing in 20 degree temperatures as I am in Central NY. Today I have two fun Easter/ Spring cards. The first is a shaker card made with the set”Good Days” designed by Tierra Jackson.

I used the outside from a die cut to make my mint green frame.  Stampin up foam adhesive strips are perfect to make shaker cards. I glued the window plastic to the mint green frame and then put the adhesive on the edge of the colored bunny image. I added multi colored sequins and sealed the two together. The double sided foam adhesive strips made this so easy! The image is colored with my favorite colored pencils. For a sentiment inside I used the kit "Everything Easter" by Lisa Arana.
This sentiment kit has basic Easter, spring and religious Easter stamps. It is my go to Easter card making sentiment kit.
I also made a clean and simple sparkly bunny card from the kit "Let's be Happy" by Angie Blom.
A Dark blue base with a layer of silver glitter paper are a great compliment to this sweet bunny image. I used a combination of markers and colored pencils on this card. Please comment below so I can put your name in the drawing to win the prize pack from Unity.

sheepishly sweet March 19 GUI

Here is my clean and simple card using the set " Sheepishly Sweet" by Phyllis Harris.
I used Stampin Up Daisy designer series paper with a coral mat. He is colored with both markers and colored pencils. This is a great card to wait until you need to send it before putting a sentiment inside.   On the back I had to use my custom stamp.

I like to color the center so it coordinates with the front and stands out a little more.  Phyllis Harris is one of my favorite stamp designers and I have quite a collection. They are images that just pull a smile and a happy thought.  I have used these stamps on all kinds of cards, tiles, wall art and candles.
I hope you comment below so I can put your name in a drawing to win a free bag of stamps from Unity. What an awesome prize this is!  Stop back all week for more fun.

Another wonderful class at the Camillus Senior Center. I love the fellowship these ladies have. Everyone helps each other and we all laugh and have fun. The first birdy is from Unity Stamp company designed by Angie Blom. This bird looks amazing in every color!
Our second card is the June paper pumpkin kit from Stampin Up!
It is a fun tropical pattern with a watermelon stamp inside.
This card is fun sized and smaller than an A2 (4.25 by 5.5inches)

The May Marcellus library class featured the Unity stamp company design "Harmony Girl" by Angie Blom. It fit our weather - too much rain.

Art Journal Phyllis Harris - GUI Friday

For my final day, I would like to show my love of Phyllis Harris and offer another use for stamping. My Art Journal is nothing more than an inexpensive blank book.  When I get a new stamp I ink it in my book to travel with me and color when I'm waiting on my boys. I like colored pencils best.
This is appropriate with Father's Day on Sunday. I also have a few more favorites. My collection of Phyllis Harris stamp kits is over a 100, they have their own storage container. The happy family
pictures and animals just warm my heart.

Brandy and Emma are amazing sets. I have a Black Lab and just love these stamps.
They are just happy puppy love.

I love these too!
Thank you all for visiting my blog.
I will continue to post my stamp classes
If you live in the Central New York area I would love to have you
Attend one of my make and take classes.
Leave a comment so I can enter you in the drawing for free Unity stamps.
Happy Stamping!,

Father's Day cards GUI Thursday

Happy Thursday
Here is a fun fish card I made for Father's Day. It is clean and simple, but I added wink of Stella to the fish to make it shimmer like real scales on a fish would. I used colored pencils and twine to finish.

At the senior center where I work myself and a few residents put a few more together for the few male residents. I hope they smile as each one is personalized with a special interest. I love sharing stamping and coloring techniques with others.
