So, I finally got to design for fun! I kept thinking about Green Grass stamps, and thinking of things that “grow” lol! Im a weirdo I know! But thats ok.

How do my photos look? This is the first I can show using my new soft box! See this post if you are puzzled about what I am talkin about!

So this was what came to me. Growing blossom- The stamp set is of course by Green Grass stamps called Holy Tomoli-

You must go check their site because she has some IMPERFECT rubbah for a mega sale! LIMITED 3 so run! You get to see the imperfections, so there will be no surprises.

The sheets of rubber are HUGE! And well etched. You will NOT be disappointed. I put mine on a 81/2 x11 sticky sheet thingy-LOL! Cool storage option.

OK back to the card. Little spritz of color-and I’m done. Its funky, and I like it!

Who wants it? I dont send nearly enough cards, so I will send this card to a random selected winner on Sunday! It will be left blank for you to do whatever you wish (unless its submit it somewhere-that is not cool).

And next we have

Bold Butterfly

LOVE this Pristine paper by Paper Salon. SO it totally inspired this card-

Used the little flower to make the stem on my big flower using Ric Rac. The button are by SEI grandma’s attic. I had to put the little bird in the corner. I though it was so cute!

So who wants it? I dont send nearly enough cards out. Post a reply and I will randomly select someone to send this to. I will leave it blank for you to do what you wish (accept submit it for publication as your own-so not cool!). I may even put a goody inside-who knows!

Next up Happy bold butterfly


This is another card from Green Grass stamps- the Holy Tomoli set and Card Greetings. Which I love the greetings. OMG! Amazing!

Patterned paper is Mushrooms by Heidi Grace, and I LOVE it! It inspired my ultra fab-u-licious color combo that SCREAMS summer! And after all that Christmas in April stamping its just what I needed.

Colors- saffron, cameo, pumpkin, and my favorite celery!

Funny story real quick.

I place my zillionth order with eP, and my order arrived Monday. I open the box, and some versamagic ink pops out. Well, I did;t remember ordering any ink. So I go through the box, and realize OMG! This isn;t my stuff. So, I look at the packing slip and it has Chantel’s ( another scs dirty dozen designer) name on it!

So it wasn’t my order it was hers. Well, let me tell you once I had ALL this precious ink in my possession the thought of sending it back hurt too much to bare! So, I bought it! LOL! I emailed them and told them it was full of drool and I needed to keep it at home with me! LOL! And thats the ink you see used on both my cards posted here! LOL!

Thanks Chantel for ordering such gorgeous ink!

Ok, Ok…now back to the card. I must be lonely today cause I keep rambling.

For the butterfly I stamped it on the white base. Piece some patterned paper (white with flower side) in the wings. Then I stamped it again on acetate. I cut the butterfly out of the acetate, and ran it through my Xyron 900.

I adhered the paper (orange flower side) to the butterfly.

I soaked it in a bowl of warm water, then gently rubbed the paper off. The sticky part leaves a sheer layer of the paper on the image, so its like “stained glass”. See through pattern. I love butterflies, especially in “flight”.

So the wings are popped forward. Stamped again in celery for the body! The antennae are jewels by A Muse. I also used the Onare Piercing border I got from Ellen H’s store. It makes the perfect flutter trail.

The happy was stamped, then traced with the journaler point of my marker.

The flower is by Bazzill. I must say these are like my favorite assortment ever! I love Daisies. Check them out. You get a large container.

And I guess that sums up my creative process. I think for the stained glass technique BOLD and OPEN images are best!

This went postal today to a special friend who always makes me SO HAPPY!
