What's Up? Carousel Seahorse. Daughter Love

      I have been overwhelmed with zucchini lately and have had very little time to craft due to shredding, freezing, baking and cooking with zucchini.  Seriously-I still have about 8 large zucchini to use and 3 little ones growing on the plants plus more blossoms wanting to turn into zucchini.  (Can you say a years worth of zucchini bread, zucchini crust pizza, chinese food with zucchini, italian crescent zucchini pie, vegetable side dishes, soups, etc.  It is really saving a lot off our food budget though.

  In the last few weeks I have managed to carve out a little late night crafting time for myself though and I have three cards to show for it.  They are very different from each other but that's the way I roll.

Whimsy Stamps Free Gift


      I've ordered digital stamps from Whimsy Stamps before but when I ordered physical stamps from them they came with a free gift.  Oh how it makes my heart sing when I get a gift.

 Fistful of Flowers
        There were 4 images from Crissy Armstrong which she had hand colored then reproduced on glossy card stock and die cut in different shapes.  There were 3 of each design.  It is called the Summer Friends Collection.  Normally I enjoy the coloring process but it was really nice to be able to make such fast cards.

Sparkle and Shine Challenge 13 Any Occasion Tags

     Here is my tiny (1.5 inch by 1 inch) tag that I submitted to the Sparkle and Shine Challenge (#13).

     I'm surprised that I was able to get so much stamped on it.  (That is a small set of scissors next to it.) I used the Pretty Peonies clear stamp set by Wplus9 for the floral details and the sentiment was from Fiskars All Year Greetings. I used a pencil eraser for the dots and did first and second generation stamping on those.  The inks were dye inks from memento and color box plus one hybrid ink from color theory.  I got a small box of these tags from my local pharmacy.
