Send me soaring

hello I made this card with the retired set, Send me soaring, it has kites in it. Just stamped them so they looked like geometric pattern.  I can never have tooo many manly cards and this one would also fit that slot!!

Starburst card

Watched a Video and this is my take on one type of starburst card! I used 4 different pieces of DSP (retired)  thought it looked like a good manly card.

Hostess sets retiring!!

I just love this stamp set and I just saw on the retired list...some I'll have to be sad over this is one of them...but then I knew it would be. Each new catalog they come out with exclusive stamps that are only available to the hostess and this set is a hostess set.  It can be bought with an order...it really is a lovely set three sketched pictures and three beautiful word stamps!!  It isn't to late!!! the new catalog will not go live till June.  QUICK contact me and we can set up a home or even a book party and you could use your hostess $$ to get this set and even have $$ left to buy anything in the catalog.
 Super easy  :1. sponge color onto card stock with your choice of color (sponge and ink pad)
                      2.  stamp image with brown over top of sponged color (the first stamping with the bird
                          is in the hostess set, the other grassy stamp is from the Wetlands set:NOT
                         RETIRING!!!! yea another Favorite of mine!!!!)
                     3.  color bird with markers
                     4. I layer onto midnight muse card stock, cut a  label and piece to fit on top        
                       ( non stampin' up) that I stamped my greeting on and adhered to the front.

time to get some more posting done... I have been stamping so today - Tuesday the 22nd I'm pre-posting and having them scheduled to download.  These 2 cards were made at a stamp camp that I do once a month at a retired apt. complex so I often use retired things as most of them don't buy-just want to make something.  they requested flowers and "springy" sooo... what could be better to show spring than a buterfly made of flowers as in the top card.  We stamped on Vellum then added rhinestones in the center for the focal point. They really love embossing so we used the arrows folder to decorate and then finished it off with a little stamping and sponging.
On this card we used the scalloped tag topper punch for the flowers to be stamped on then colored (their choice) with markers. Sponged all the pieces then assembled and stamped the hummingbird last and colored also.                                  they really liked my visions so what do you think?

Quick post to show another card using the homemade stamp method(directions in a previous post). I've been sitting with my new stamping "daughter"  she has a table set  up at a craft show.  I'll try to get some more posts done so they'll download even when I'm busy they take me some time to get done,  We're NOT high tech. here. Thanks for stopping by I really love to read your opinions of my visions!  Have a great day.

TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
