It's been almost a month since I posted. I have been in a stamping slump a bit and haven't stamped much other than prepping for classes and even to do that I have had to really force myself. I am still somewhat in a slump but I feel if I challenge myself by making sure I post to my blog at least a couple times a week hopefully I can get out my stamping slump. To resume posting to my blog I have created a video for you. Hope you enjoy.

Faux Grid Class Part 3

Sorry it took so long to post the third card of the Faux Grid class. This past weekend was spend doing fun things out of the house, so I did not get much done around the house and that included making any cards or updating my blog. It was a nice fun weekend, we spent Saturday getting some much needed shopping done. Priority items was to find new running/walking shoes for both Andrew and I for our upcoming trip. I love wearing heals and always feel funny anytime I wear any type of flats, so needless to say my only shoes that could be considered flats are flip-flops and these will not work for the walking we plan on doing. And Andrew was in desperate need of new shoes, his runners we starting to look pretty bad. We did have a productive day and both found shoes that should work good and keep our feet comfortable. I guess we will find out. We then ended the weekend by spending the day with friends and checking out fish stores. For those of you who know my husband, before you ask, yes he did buy a new fish. No shocker there eh? Today was back to work and trying lots done. Now that you know all about my weekend I will show you a card since that is really why you came to my blog in the first place, right? This card was the third card we made at the Faux Grid class I was telling you about last week.
Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Crazy for Cupcakes
Ink: Black StazOn, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo Markers

Faux Grid Class Part 2

These is another one of the cards we made at the faux grid class. This is my favourite card from the class. I love these flowers from the Fifth Avenue Floral set. This card is just so bright and cheery even with the Black base. Each square is 1", instead of adding the dots on the lines to make it look like a stitched quilt I coloured in some of the squares. I think the colouring of the squares really makes the flowers pop off the page even more. I have a few extra of these cards left, I think I will dig some out of my stash and mail them out to some friends to remind them spring it just around the corner.

Supplies Used:
(All Stampin' Up!)
Stamp Sets: Fifth Avenue Floral, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana Markers, Black StazOn
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Small Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Together Class Part 2

These are the last two cards we made at the Happy Together Class this past weekend. Lately I have been really white base cards. This card was inspired from Putri at SCS I changed up the colours and layout a little bit. I rarely use the colour Tempting Turquoise because it is such a bright colour but on this card I just love it. It really make the main image stand out. The second card was inspired from Soshiro at SCS. I love how this card turned out, I tried so many different embellishments for the middle band of the card, but had to come back to the Chocolate Chip ribbon, it just seemed to fit the card the best.

Stamp Sets: Happy Together
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise
