Looking back at some projects made with some of the retiring stamp sets…
…each project brings back so many memories of good times with stamping friends and makes me smile! Today is the last day to order retiring sets with free shipping. Please let me know if you’d like me to order you anything. Have a great week-end, Dawn
“For I remember it is Easter morn, And life and love and peace are all new born.”
Happy Easter to you with this little treat holder made with the Backyard Basics Stamp Set and Dies Set (graciously loaned to me by my friend Mimi) and the Designer Frames Embossing Folder (graciously loaned to me by my friend Laurie.) Whisper White paper was stamped with the Hardwood stamp with Crumb Cake Ink. The Pistachio Pudding leaves were cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlet. The top of the treat holder was punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. The butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and sponged with Coastal Cabana Ink. The egg is also sponged with Coastal Cabana. The flower is stamped with a Petite Petals stamp with the middle colored with a Daffodil Yellow marker and then sponged with So Saffron ink. The “hardwood” strip is 1 7/8″ x 11″ and scored at 4 1/2″ and 6 1/2″. Have a blessed day friends! Dawn

Happy Easter from Stamping Peace. May God’s divine surprise give us a thankful heart! : ) This card was stamped on a Stampin’ Up! notecard (5″ x 7″) with the Backyard Basics set and Soft Suede Ink. The eggs are sponged with So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding and Soft Sky. The background is sponged with Soft Sky and the tulip was sponged with So Saffron and covered over with Blushing Bride and Pistachio Pudding. The tulip on the envelope was colored with colored pencils. I saw this card on the Stampin’ Up! blog as a thank you card but I used this sentiment from the Delightful Dozen to turn it into an Easter Card. : ) Wishing you a Happy Easter Sunday and a peaceful Easter season, Dawn
“Whatever we appreciate and give thanks for will increase in our life.”
We made this card at class last night, and we’ll be making it at class tonight as well. It’s a modification of a Beth Beard design, with a different sentiment, different ribbon and style of tying it, and we used colored pencils instead of blender pens. The tulip is from the Backyard Basics stamp set and the sentiment is from the Regarding Dahlias stamp set. We used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder for the background texture. Cardstock is Whisper White, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. We colored the entire tulip yellow, and then added other colors. It’s always great to have a thank you card on hand! Cheers, Dawn
“Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.”
Peace to you this morning! At our Team Meeting last week-end, we all brought a card that we had made for a “yankee swap.” This was Beth’s card, made with the new hardwood stamp and the “Lovely as a Tree” stamp. She said it’s the longest running stamp set that Stampin’ Up! has kept in the catalog. : )
Mimi, gardener that she is, used “Backyard Basics” for her beautiful tulip graced get well card. The embossing folder is “Lacy Brocade.”
Terry reminded us how versatile the bird punch is. She also used the scallop border punch and the Pansy Punch.
My swap card was a large version of this card, but I forgot to take a picture of it! I used the Summer Silhouettes stamp set.
Hope you enjoyed our Team Stamping Peace cards and thanks for visiting! Dawn
