Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


I just love this big flower from Starving Artistamps. I colored it with Copic markers then die cut with Spellbinders dies. I’ll use this for a swap this month on FL Stampers Yahoo group.

If you like it enough to buy it, use my discount code savetenAC! Thanks for looking!

Another great stamp set from Unity Stamps! This one came from a regular set, not a monthly one. It’s super cute and great to use as a triple inchie card! I’ll be sending this to my swap partner on the FL Stampers yahoo group this month. Are you a stamper in FL? Come on by and check us out.

I have to smile whenever I say that word! I loved this Stampin’ Up! set ever since it came out a couple years ago. I’m thrilled that I had the peace (piece?) of mind to buy it before it got retired! Can’t wait to send it to my swap partner on the FLStampers yahoo group!

Two of my favorite things went into this card, glitter and meeting challenges. For the 2nd week of the Unity Bachelor Contest, glitz was in AND CardPositioningSystems had a great versatile sketch to play with!


Talk about tough to take a picture of?! Whew! I stamped with a glue pad then sprinkled on the PK Glitz in Chocolate – isn’t that color totally yummy? I took the picture outside in the sun to hopefully catch the glitz. A piece of Sticky Tape from PK Glitz worked well for the lead into the sentiment.

Using cardstock only is sometimes challenging with all of that gorgeous patterned paper out there! But think of the possibilities with some solid colored paper, stamps and ink. There are LOTS.

Take a look at this page using only Prism cardstock. Here are the colors that I used: Iced Amethyst, Vibrant Cobalt, Frosted Mint, Butter Cream and Nero. Thanks for peeking today!
