Yikes, I guess I am a little behind on updating my blog!!  Sorry about that, but things just kept getting in the way.  I had an awesome weekend of stamping with all my friends in my stamping class.  Did my first Christmas Stack class for the year (yeah, yeah -- I know I started a little late this year).  But that seems to be my middle name lately, "late."  Sorry I'm not showing pictures of the cards today because I still have pictures from my Creative Convention presentation on "Background Stamps."  Today I have a few using the awesome new Sunflower Background Stamp and my shoebox swap. 

I paired the Sunflower Background with the Alway Grateful Stamp Set here. Accesories:  Cajun Craze 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and Vintage Eyelets.
The Sunflower Background Stamp was paired with the En Francais Background Stamp.  The Sunflower was stamped on tissue paper in Not Quite Navy Classic Ink and sponged with Soft Suede Classic Ink.  Accessories:  Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Linen Tread, Jewelry Tag Punch, and Anywhere Glue Stick.
I don't think you can get anything more simplier than this card -- it is literally a 1-minute card including cutting!  The Sunflower Background Stamp is stamped directly on Well Worn Designer Series Paper, in Cajun Craze Classic Ink and the sentiment (from Pursuit of Happiness Stamp Set) is stamped in Early Expresso Classic Ink.

I decided to do a bookmark for the Creative Convention Shoebox Swap as I had a lot of the plastic inserts left from a purchase I made a couple of years ago.  Supplies:  Always Grateful Stamp Set; Pizzazz and Confetti White Cardstock; Spice Cake Designer Series Pape; So Saffron, Marina Mist, and Wild Wasabi Markers; and Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink swipped direct to paper using blank rubber stamp. 
I hope you like!  Probably only two more posts and I will be done showing you my projects from Creative Convention presentation -- so bear with me.

Until next time,

  1. Really like the first two cards Sandi and the colors that you used on them. I think that the flowers turned out nice. Great job.

  2. Your cards are absolutely beautiful!!! Love the first one and the tag especially well!
