Stampin' Up! Amazing Birthday ~ Masculine Card

I love vacation except for the fact that you have 2 times the amount of work when you get home.  I don't know why that happens even when you are a stay at home mom.    Inspire. Create. Share. the Stampin' Up! National Convention was amazing but I am having such a hard time getting things around this house back in order.

Yesterday, instead of finishing up the laundry and a few other household chores, I spent the afternoon in my craftroom.  I have three birthdays next week and a ton of new goodies from convention that I had to just get in there and play.  Today, I am sharing a birthday card that I made for my brother using the Amazing Birthday stamp set that I got at convention.  It is a large set with 7 stamps, if you get the wood mount make sure you note the way the stamps fit in the case because they are like a puzzle.

Bright and Beautiful

©2014 Stampin' Up!

I am sorry I have been MIA for so long.  Summer is always a fun crazy time but this year I added into the mix a visit to Salt Lake City for the Stampin' Up! National Convention.  To say I was inspired by all the amazing demonstrators at convention is putting it mildly.   One of the perks of going to convention was we received several stamp sets as a gift for attending.  We were also able to buy a few of the items that will be available Aug. 28th in the Holiday Catalog.  This is the Bright and Beautiful stamp set that will be in the catalog.  I usually go with blues and silvers for my Christmas cards but decided to go "old school" on this one with Bravo Burgundy and Mossy Meadow.   Love this set!

Have a great Tuesday.

From the Garden

I saw this background stamp on eBay a couple of months ago and have been trying to buy it ever since.  I have a set budget of what I am willing to pay for items; every time I saw it the bidding would go too high or the shipping was a fortune.  Finally, I saw it posted for a reasonable price and grabbed it.  The reason I wanted it so badly is I knew that Scott would do an amazing job coloring it for me.  He did not disappoint.

The image was colored using a combination of Stampin' Up! Blendabilities which are now available for purchase and Copic markers.  The colors are amazing together.

Have a nice day,
