She Sells Seashells...

Hello, my stampin' friends!

Welcome to a brand new week.  WOOT!  I've been busier than a mosquito at a nudist colony picnic!
I'm SOOOOO excited to tell you that I received a phone call last Wednesday from Stampin' Up! asking me to be a presenter at their Baltimore Regional Event this coming Saturday, April 13th.  I still can't believe it!!  I'll be sharing some of my Punch Art.  How cool is THAT???

Needless to say I've been keeping some pretty late hours in my studio.  Too bad I need to work a "regular" job during the day.  :-(  Oh well....we do enjoy things like food and gas and lights...
One day I pray that I'll be able to devote ALL of my time to creating and sharing what I LOVE.  I'm still prayin'!

Ok,..so I wanted to share a fun card with you today with a stamp set that I just bought.  I've looked at it many times as I flipped through the catalog and I think once the temperatures finally warmed up I knew I was ready to add it to my collection.  It's called "By the Seashore" (wood mount #126530/clear mount #126532)  Here are the images included in the set...


...and here's my card...



I love this technique.  It's called "Triple Time Stamping".  It's really a quick and easy technique that has quite a "WOW!" factor.  Hmmm....I might need to do a video tutorial on this one.  What do you think?

The colors I used are Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  The center focal point was made using one of those stinkin' cute "Pop Tops" from the Spring Catalog.  I put it through my Big Shot and "smushed" it. (technical term)  :-)  I used the "Sending Many Thanks" stamp from the "Petite Pairs" stamp set (wood mount #122495/clear mount #122497)  The center panel is wrapped with Linen Thread #104199.  I used the "Little Labels Punch Pack" #126881 to make the little tags that are attached.  Aren't they sweet?  They add just a little "POP" of color.

Now I think that this is a perfect card to start sending out to friends and family since the sun seems to be shining just a little brighter and they sky is just a little bluer.  IT'S SPRING!   I know I can't wait for summer to arrive and I'm sure we will be enjoying some of those delicious steamed crabs before you can say, "Old Bay!".

Alrighty....don't forget...you have until midnight tonight to place your orders and have them SHIP FOR FREE.  It's a bargain!!  Just click the shopping cart above and head over to my Online Shop.  FREE SHIPPING is good on anything and everything.  Be sure to check out the Clearance Rack too for some awesome bargains.

Have a magical day!
