In Murfreesboro, TN

Hi Stampers,
Visiting my little granddaughter in TN for a few days but I did bring the lap top so I could continue to post card samples for you.

We arrived in the rain yesterday but today looks like it is going to be beautiful.  Headed out to see the Nashville Sound play today.  I bet you thought we were going to hear some country music right?  Wrong!  Nashville Sound is a baseball team.  You know we can't go anywhere without Jack getting his baseball fix.

Enjoying our family.  More tomorrow!  Hugs, Patti

Happy Birthday Doily

I didn't want the doily to overpower the card so I cut 1/4 of it off at the top so the ribbon could share the spotlight. LOL  I think these little pink rhinestones are so cute but you can only get them as part of the designer printed Kit on page 18 of the mini, which BTW, ends on April 30th.  If you want them, order now.

Supplies: Stamp Set;  Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess set) 122617.  Paper; Melon Mambo 115320, Confetti White 102028, White White 100730,  Letters to Santa DSP 122349.  Inks; Early Expresso 119670.  Embellishments; Big Shot 113439, Paper Doily Sizzlits Die 125592, 1 3/4" Circle Punch 119850, 1" circle punch 119868, Scallop Circle Punch 119854, Stampin' Dimensionals 104430, 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon 125057, Designer Printer Kit Rhinestones 125410.

Twitterpated Vintage

My favorite card to create is a vintage type card.  I love antiques and old things and I guess that is why I gravitate towards the vintage technique.  The flower is not stamped but from the DSP.  I did used quite a bit of embellishments on this card.  I sponged soft suede on the torned edges to resemble burnt paper.

I am really going to miss this Twitterpated DSP when the end of the month comes, and just like the SAB dsp, I am trying to use as much of it as possible before I have to say goodbye to it.  Also, I am not sure if this stamp set will make it into the new catalog.  Hope so, it is so lovely.

You are going to see a lot of this stamp set because it is so versatile.  And with summer around the corner what is better than a big juicy slice of watermelon.  Here's a tip.  Use versamark on the melon slices and then add the melon embossing powder (pg 35 in the mini).  Heat with heating tool and smell the delicious scent of melon.

Red & White Happy Birthday

Copied the idea for this White & Red 4 window card with this Birthday Greeting from a demonstrator on Stampin' Connection.  I wrote down her name so I could give her credit and I misplaced the paper in the mess on my desk.  However, I do believe her first name is Janis.  Thank you Janis for the inspiration.
I used the flowers in my windows where she used stamped gift boxes.  I also used the framed Tulips embossing folder which she did not use.  I like the idea of just white with 1 other color, it gives it such a clean look.

Supplies: Stamp Set: (Hostess set) Happiest Birthday Wishes 122617.  Paper; Whisper White 100730, Poppy Parade 119793, Naturals White 102316.  Inks; Poppy Parade 119782.  Embellishments; 1" Square punch 124094, Boho Blossoms Punch 119858, Neutrals Brads 119736, Stampin' Dimensionals 104430, Paper Piercing Tool 116131, Mat Pack 105826, Big Shot 113439, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder 121809.

All in the Family

All in the family has been around for a while and like 'Lovely as a Tree', I hope it stays.  There is always a time when you can use this stamp set.  Good for teachers, Ministers, Children, Babies, Birthday parties, Home, so many uses.  I also used the 3 wheel stamps (Builder Wheels) which ties everything in nicely.

More of Black Magic Technique

Again, I heat embossed using white craft ink and then colored with watercolor pencils.  Speaking of heat, the weather is beautiful here right now.  I guess it's that way over most of the eastern coast, but in South Carolina, our ornamental trees and flowers are blooming and look quite beautiful.  A lot like the colors in this card.
