Try Stampin #327 BOLDS!!!


Here I am again using this card sketch for two purposes. I decided to use the bolds and only used two colors that are in the new in-color line up.  Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist    I have a card class coming up and a manly card w as requested.  This card really could be used for anyone but definitely thought it fit the bill for a man.  What do you think?  My group makes two cards each month and if you come back tomorrow you can see the other card, made with the same stamp set; Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  My DT card for challenge 325 used the die that comes with this set.  I really wanted to show the ladies and gent that this set was quit versatile.
                  



Optional theme:  All pastels or All bolds

Try Stampin #326 Let's get Fishy


When your a crafter it is not impossible to find time to do what you love! even when it seems life is pulling you from all directions.  That is me right now, I'm not complaining just realizing that I can find time to stamp and enjoy it even with all that is happening right now.  Just in case anyone is reading this text and following/praying, my Mother-in-law is back in the hospital.  Thank you so much for letting me vent a minute.  Ok enough of that!

My card today is two fold, First made for Try Stampin and second for Fathers Day - it's right around the corner.  Hoping to go see my father, will you be going to see yours?  My dad has a large fish tank so when I saw this Theme I decided to do something fish related.  Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you'll join us - even if your life seems crazy find a minute or two to do something you love!!!

                                                                           
I moved and changed the placement of a few elements for this card but I believe I included everything that this sketch has. ( Psst.....You don't have to if you just want to stamp and not use this sketch though.)
Optional Theme: Wiggles and waves

Old and New for Try Stampin # 325

Hey I'm back but just for a quicky....When I first saw the theme for this card sketch I immediately thought Flowers,..  Isn't that summers splendor?  But to all in the Stampin' Up Family June and summer means a new catalog which means new stamps, dies accessories, and 5 new In Colors.

So as I sat at my desk thinking "this needs to be quick Vicki"  I decided to use old and new. This card is show casing one of the new in colors called Lemon Lime Twist. I picked it because it reminds me of summer.   :0)      When I help in the hay field there are little green moths flying around.

The old I used was the fluttering textured impressions embossing folder, rhinestones, and the bold butterfly framelits dies.  The new is the Lemon Lime Twist card stock and for the inside an absolutely must have for all a new die called Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.  It is lovely so nice and big- this one will be a winner!!

I'm thankful that you stopped by, I do hope you have enjoyed all the inspiration of the others on the team.  We all love to hear from you so if you have a moment leave us a little word. Were you inspired by something we made?

For any who saw a previous post on my sister with leukemia, she went home on June 1 the Doctors are saying she is in remission.  She will have three follow up treatments for prevention purposes. Thank you for your prayers. Have a wonderful week.
