Inspired by some cards using the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set, I created this vase of cute flowers on a tablecloth of More Mustard DSP.

I really like the color combo of Island Indigo, More Mustard, Old Olive and Raspberry Ripple.

Another Hummingbird Miracle

Here's another little hummingbird created from the Sale-a-Bration set called Bloomin' Marvelous. It uses mostly retired products (Regal Rose and Certainly Celery Cardstock and retired DSP, as well as the Vine Street embossing folder), but the layout could be used with other similar current stamp sets, such as Elements of Style (118611 W, 120645 C) or Wildflower Meadow (129165).

Hummingbird Miracles

Here's a little hummingbird to brighten your day. I love this Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Bloomin' Marvelous. Too bad Sale-a-Bration ended in March! It's just starting to feel like spring around here, even though it's June already:(

Hope your day is marvelous!

Bubbles and Cake

What do you do with a small scrap of pink and white striped dsp? Why, you punch circles in different sizes to create a bubbly background for a beautiful cake, of course!

The color scheme kinda reminds me of neapolitan ice cream. Yum, ice cream and cake!

Rummaging around in my craft room today, I came across these top note remnants from a previous project. Hmmm, what could I do with these?

With a quick cut down the middle, the frame was transformed!
Add a little DSP, stamp a little, use a couple of framelits and punches, sponge a little, color a little.Then voila ... A baby card emerges! Blue and orange might not be traditional baby colors, but I like it!

What do you think? One down and only 12-1/2 more frames to repurpose!
