Happy Easter

Here's a card I had at my last stamp camp for some wonderful ladies that like to take their time and stamp with me.
Using SU!'s Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Bloomin' Marvelous and the single stamps set, Easter Blessing.  Colors are Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum, Pear Pizazz, and Pink Pirouette.
I did not realize before snapping the picture that I lost one of the little gems on one of the pink flowers.  Oh well. 
Hope you have had a wonderful Easter!

There are some days I love to stamp, other days I read, then other times I cross stitch.  Then there are lots of days where I don't do anything!  That's been mostly the case lately.
But since spring break, I've been playing with my stamps.  I pulled out a set I hardly have used, SU! Great Friend, now retired.  It's one I just had to have, used it on a card or two, then it sat in the closet unused for a very long time.  Partly because it is wood mounted and I prefer my clear mount sets over the wood nowadays. 
So I pulled out the neglected set, peeled it off it's wood block and made it into a clear mount set using Papilio Inkjet clear static cling vinyl film using THIS tutorial and THIS one. 
Found the coordinating designer series paper (that I just had to have with the set!) and inked up the stamps.  Made several cards, like the ones above and below.
I'm determined to use up all of this paper, making simple coordinating tags with the scraps.  No use hoarding it. 

Had to pull out an old color to match with the designer series paper, A Walk in the Park.  It uses the retired color Cameo Coral.  Good thing I hadn't gotten rid of it yet.  I am getting ready to clean out my stamp room and do away with the old colors and coordinating cardstock. 

Going to find another old set to redo and give it a little inky love.

A Spring Tea

Happy Spring! 
 Popping in  to share with you a  little gift for my sister who loves to drink tea as much I do.
It's one of our favorite daily rituals. 
Packaged up a tin of Harney & Sons tea called "Paris" with a tea themed card.
Used the SU! set called Tea Shoppe.  I cased a card I made awhile back but used Wisteria Wonder color scheme to match the tin. 


Enjoying a break from school; we are on our spring/Easter holiday break. 
Love having this time at home but it's going by way too quickly for my liking!
Have a lovely day!
