Hi Stampers,

Keeping up with my schedule of blogging 3 times a week I am a little late posting today since I am just now returning home from Atlanta.  Although I love my home state of Michigan, Georgia really does have some nice perks. The city and surrounding suburbs of Atlanta are just beautiful.  I have visited the ATL a few times in the last year and I can honestly say Atlanta is one place outside of Detroit I could truly call my home. I am not saying I am relocating, but if I was given the right opportunity to live and work in Atlanta, I would certainly seize the moment.

Well enough gibber and on to today's card design. Continuing the theme of simple and beautiful, today's card creation is a nursery theme card using the Easy Events stamp set. The Easy Events stamp set is a great set of images that can be used for various occasions, such as Birthday, Thinking of You, Congratulations, New Baby, Thank You and more. I often recommend this set since  truly provides a lot.

Today's card uses the Welcome Baby image of a duck, which is stamped in Stazon Black ink three times to create a series of ducklings. Each duck was then colored with Bashful Blue, Baja Breeeze, Daffordil Delight and Pumpkin Pie markers. The color combination of this card does indicate the New Baby is a boy, however,  this card can be made using a combination of pinks and yellows to give this card design a feminine touch.

Hope you've enjoyed this simple yet beautiful card design. If you liked this blog post and would like to learn more about the joys of stamping, tune in tomorrow for another card creation.

Until then, Happy Stamping!!

Monthly Stamping Party

Hey there stampers,

I know it has been ages since I've updated my blog and I sincerely apologize for the delay between posts. Blogging is something I need to get better at doing.

I am making a conscience effort to post more often. How frequent that will be is still to be determined, but the goal is at least 3 times a week. So for now lets just see how everything goes.

Anyhoo, yesterday was my monthly stamping party, where a bunch gals and I get together for a few hours and stamp 6 different all occasion greeting cards. Here is a sample of 3 of the cards we made. Aren't they cute!  My favorite is the Stippled Blossoms card showcased on the right. The color combination of Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral, paired with the Crumb Cake just makes me smile. Not only did thus card win my heart, but it was a favorite among many of the ladies as well.

My second favorite of the day was the sympathy card using Stampin' Up!'s Love and Sympathy stamp set. I love the simplicity of black and white, and with a strip of red this sympathy card really is stunning.

If you've enjoyed these samples and would like to learn how to make simple and beautiful cards just like these, e-mail me at for details. If you live in the Metro Detroit and/or surrounding areas and would like to attend my next stamping party coming up in September, join my mailing list to receive party invitations.   

Until next time,
Happy stamping!
