Wow – I can’t believe how time flies when you’re busy!!! I’m still helping out at the salon and quilting for my customers, so my stampin’ time has been limited to preparing for the in-house classes. This weekend, I was working on my team swaps – it felt so good to be creative! For this particular swap, I had to choose one of the many new bundles in the new catalogue. I decided to use the Little Monkey bundle as my theme, and I also included the Online exclusive stamp set, “Tropical Leaf”, as well as the clouds from “Playing in the Rain”, also from the new catalogue.
I stamped the leaves on Granny Apple Green Card stock, with Granny Apple Green ink and the little monkey is hanging out on a window sheet. The die for the sentiment is from the Cheerful Daisies Dies. So cute!! Check out the YouTube tutorial here

Yesterday, I was thrilled to be able to open the Nourish & Flourish Kit. I will post the link to my Youtube tutorial below. For each of the three different designs, I did the original design from the kit, as well as two alternatives. I kept it simple, as I was flying by the seat of my pants, but I was happy with the results. I hope you like them.

I absolutely love the versatility of this stamp set. I decided that we could use a little spring, as winter storms blow in, this month, so here are my February Team Swaps. If anyone is interested in doing a group swap with me, let me know – I love sending and receiving cards each month.
Tone on Tone projects usually call my name. Even when I’m quilting, I’ll often opt for a tone on tone look. In this card, I used Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Magenta Madness ink, on the same colour of cardstock to create the base flowers. I used the open petal die to cut out the matching piece for the top of the flower, and the flower die for the larger flower. My card base is Granny Apple Green. I used the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, on a piece of Basic White, as my matte. My greetings are from the Many Messages, stamp set.
Are you ready? The biggest stamp sale of the year is coming up on 23 September!

This Sale-a-bration Stamp set can be yours, FREE with a $60 purchase. I’m very excited that as of February 4th, there will also be a die set available for this stamp set. Life is Good!!
Card Base – Basic Gray – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 – score at 4 1/4″
Matte – Flirty Flamingo 4 x 5 1/4″
Card front – Whisper White -3 3/4′ x 5 “
Scrap Whisper White – cake stamp (fussy cut)
I used the 2″ circle punch to punch a circle from the Flirty Flamingo. It’s going to be covered with the Whisper White, so it doesn’t matter where you punch.
I then ran the Flirty Flamingo circle through the Big Shot, in the Scripty embossing folder. Because this is a 3D Embossing folder, you might want to consider purchasing the 3D embossing plate, as it eliminates the need for shims when running through the Big Shot. I can’t do without it.
I stamped the Cake stamp with Basic Gray, onto some Whisper White, coloured it with Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, then fussy cut it out.
A little Wink of Stella, on the flowers,and voila!! I also used a bit of Wink with some basic gray ink, to highlight the cake.
I put the cake cut out on Stampin’ Dimensionals, to give the card some “oomph”.
