Swaps On the Grow

Okay, all you club stamp club members, no peeking! This is my swap for the July club meeting. Since I had stamped up a bunch of images to color while my dad was in the hospital (he slept a lot, and I had to keep busy or I'd go crazy), I decided to use these for the swap.  This is the same image from On the Grow that was used for the thank you card sent to Dad's nurses, just colored differently.

Less than a week until the new Idea Book & Catalog goes live! I can't wait!!!

My new catalog is positively bristling with sticky note bookmarks. I have to make my list, and then arrange it into "Things I HAVE to order right away", "Things that can wait a month or two", and "Things I haven't made up my mind about yet". 

Oh, who am I kidding?  They'll all fall into that first category!  I just have to come up with the $$ to buy it all!  Anyone need a kidney? j/k 
Stamps: On the Grow, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise DSP (retired)
Inks: Basic Black Classic, Tempting Turquoise Classic, Lucky Limeade Classic, Pool Party Classic
Accessories: Curly Label Punch, black rhinestones (retired Halloween), Blender Pens


  1. Very pretty card with neat, clean lines! Thanks for sharing!


  2. Such a pretty card! That DSP is perfect, and the black matting makes it pop!

  3. Lovely coloring! I love this image, so homey, sweet, and wholesome

  4. I like the black layer you used - I forget about black -I just used this stamp on Sunday in a workshop and it was a favorite. PS: My new catalog bristles with post-it notes too! And I also divide into categories of "to die for now','sooner than later', and 'the maybe if I get an inspiration for it'

  5. What beautiful coloring! Love this card and I agree with everyone else on the pop of black.

  6. Another beautiful card. Love the colors - simple but the black really makes the image pop.
    As for the catalog, I decided to forget the sticky notes this time. There are so many projects I want to try that I'm just going to consider the whole thing one giant note. ha!

  7. Do you do a swap with your club members? Hmmmm....

  8. So pretty, Cindy! Just love the way you worked the colors.


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
