Stampington Take Ten Spring 2015 Magazine

Hello Spring

Well not quite yet, although I have happy mail today which tells me Spring is on her way to my neighbourhood.  I will have to wait till the March Lion comes through town which will be at the end of March.

I have been published in the magazine called Stampers Sampler-Take Ten, published by Stampington & Company Magazines.  This publishing house has a wide selection of magazines which I love all of them.  Check the collection out at your favorite book store like Chapters and the Craft Store Michaels.
My cards feature Sweet and Sassy Stamps.  The stamp collection is called "Punny Fruits and Vegetables" .  The cards are located on pages 43, 96 and 116.  The "Orange you sweet" card was mis-quoted although once you see the other 2 cards in the series, ya know it's one of my creations....showcasing Sweet and Sassy Stamps.

My Favorite Things-Tombow USA-Canvas Corp

Hello and Welcome to my blog.  To-day I would like to share a valentines card that I made.  I am playing along with some challenges hosted by:

My Favorite Things  MFTWSC215

Tombowusa

 

This is My Favorite Things sketch challenge that they have posted right now.  I have featured I believe to be my favorite dies, Beautiful bows and Leaf-Filled Flourish.
Here is my Valentine Card which features Tombow USA Adhesive and Canvas Corp products.



Tombow's challenge was to make something for Valentines.  So I went with the classic Black and White with a splash of vibrant pink color.

Lets collect our supplies

Here are a few close ups.  You can see how vibrant the pink colored burlap hearts are.


 I think I am going to use this  Savor the Moment stamp set alot....


And one last look at this sharp crisp Valentine's Card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day today.
