Happy Easter! I hope that you all are enjoying the day with your Family and Friends!! I actually had a holiday off ... woohoo!!
This is a simple card I made using the Ears to You single stamp set. I have loved all the single stamp set options that Stampin' Up! has offered but I think this one is my favorite!! I was so happy when they announced that they were going to extend the offer so if you haven't gotten this set yet there is still time!! Happy Stamping!!

Stampin' Up! recently did a call for the opportunity to be a Display Stamper and of course I wanted to try out!! So here are my submissions.I used only two stamp sets for all of my projects Swallowtail from the current mini catalog and Loving Thoughts from the main catalog.
Usually for Display Stamping you make small type projects but since this was to show my stamping style I did make some larger projects. This first project is one of two of the 3d items I created, it's a folder pocket that I created to hold those super cute chocolate carrots.
This next project is a picture frame that I plan on hanging in my craft room ... just love the colors!!
The next three projects are my card submissions. Each one uses the Swallowtail in a different way.
Lastly is my scrapbook page and this one is over the top!! In my opinion the picture just does not do it justice!! It's also not the way I usually scrapbook but I still love it!! I'm thinking this one is going to end up in a shadowbox.
Later on I will post some more information detailing each project, supplies, closeups and how I got so many different sizes of butterfly's with just one stamp ... so stayed tuned! Happy Stamping!!

Wow it's been a loooong time! As some of you know I had a LOT of dental work done, got braces, couldn't eat and lost a bunch of weight. During all of that I lost my energy and mojo so I hadn't stamped for over 6 months. Since February I really worked on getting myself back into gear and started stamping again! This project unfortunately isn't one of them as I have a bunch of not yet shown projects, the next post will be full of just completed projects! This card doesn't have much stamping except the sentiment, instead it uses the paper flowers that I dyed using my aqua painter and refill ink. I hope you like it!! I love the colors myself! Happy Stamping!!
