I found a new love!


I fell head over heels in love with Ultra Fine Flower Soft tonight!!!!! The shipment arrived at Your Next Stamp today just in time for the release date and I just had to start playing right away! It is sooooo easy to use…a dab of Flower Soft glue…a sprinkle of ultra fine flower soft…and voila beautiful dimension added to your creation! I LOVE IT!!! Yes, I am yelling right now and jumping around the room – lol actually I’m really only yelling quietly because my son is sleeping in the next room. Can you tell I’m excited?!?! Also can you tell I’m a Flower Soft first timer? lol That’s right I had never used it until tonight and it’s awesome!!!

Here is my creation…

I used Fhiona’s Pet Bird stamp along with a the sentiment Happy Spring which is a little sneak peek at one of the sentiments that will be released this Wednesday – YAY! I stamped them both on Prism Simply Smooth White cardstock, the purple cardstock is from the Crisscross Light cardstock pack, the cream cardstock is from the Prismatics Nautical Blue Accent Pack and the DP is Spring Garden by Doodle Bug. I cut the bird out with circle nesties and then before putting the card together I colored the cute bird in with Copics and used the Ultra Fine Sage Flower Soft on the branch leaves – don’t you just think it looks so COOL?! Then I topped it all off with a little flower brad from the Doodle Bug Easter Brads Set and some ribbon.

Have a fabulous weekend!!!

Bright and Fun!

WOW! We went from feeling like Spring here in Kitchener to a major snow day! I ventured out to get the mail yesterday afternoon and the snow was already half way up to my knees – that’s crazy! I guess the duck ducks won’t be back anytime soon – lol
So with all this snow I felt like creating a bright and fun card with the Zebra from the Wild Birthday stamp set. I’ve been wanting to make this zebra anything but black and white for awhile and this card seemed just right for a teal and purple zebra! I even made my own background paper with some reinkers and a sponge.

I hope you have a bright and fun day!

In the mood for Spring!

It’s a beautiful day here in Ontario and we just got back from a nice walk to the pond which is still frozen but my son who is 21 months old is convinced that the duck ducks {that’s his wording} should be back from vacation and swimming in the pond by now! lol Well they weren’t there yet and I’m sure we’ll have to go back tomorrow to check again. I don’t mind though, I really enjoy the nice weather and being able to go outside without feeling like you’ve got icicles hanging from your nose! Although the forecast does call for a ton of snow tomorrow! With that in mind I decided to continue dreaming about Spring weather and play around with some more Spring themed cards which just happens to be the theme for YNS Challenge #10 – YAY!

I’ve used the Franfou Design stamp Bee Stings along with the Hi! sentiment from the Mixed Bag of Greetings set. The pretty dp is Brellas and Wellies Stripes.

I hope you are having a bright and happy spring like day!
