Accented Blooms with Blends


Accented Blooms Stamp Set # 146678 wood OR # 146681 clear, has a coordinating punch called Tailored Tag # 145667! This set pairs perfectly with Stampin' Blends, alcohol markers!! Note how the lower flowers have a soft shadow of Light Crumb Cake Blends. The base card is embossed with the NEW Subtle Embossing Folder # 143706 that gives a "linen look!"



On this card I did a Resist Technique for the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it using Clear Embossing Powder. Next, I used the Old Olive Blends Marker to write over the "hello" which had no clear embossing on the letters.


I highly recommend this lovely Accented Blooms and Tailored Tag Punch for your collection! ALL Stampin' BLENDS are in stock now so get them while you can! You will love them - I do!!




Dandelion Wishes


"Dandelion Wishes" Stamp Set is soft and sweet! These colors are Soft Suede combined with Powder Pink or Pool Party. Lots of sponging adds to the softness. Each tiny seed has a dot of Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen #141897.


This card is off to a friend who unfortunately broke her arm...I hope it makes her smile!! Click on the picture to get a BIGGER view.

Abstract Impressions Bundle


There is nothing better than playing with NEW stamps!! I love to pull out a "suite" of products and just start creating.

This gorgeous butterfly die is part of the Bundle. Bundled products save you 10%!


The wing tips are not attached and slightly curved up to show a "peekaboo" of the designer paper!
