Hi stamping friends.  Busy weekend around here and today and tomorrow I’m going to share with you some of the things I was working on.

Pansy, lots and lots of pansy.

We have a ton of friends with March Birthdays and I had a swap theme of “birthday” so I decided to combine it with a curiosity of mine.

Simply Sent Card Kit
I can’t tell you how many times I have stopped at page 170 in my catalog.

Pansy remind me of my mom and her birthday is March 12th,  so I decided that was a pretty good excuse to order this Card Kit and see exactly what was in it.

It comes in a beautiful gift box, with a pretty Belly Band.

and look at all the goodies.  I love pre-cut kits, you can just open and create, no measuring or fussing around.

the stamp set is Die cut so fast to mount, and off I went stamping my little face off.  I used StazOn Ink as it does what it says – it stays on!.  I’m going to get the paper wet and I don’t want my image to run.

I decided to add a little color, so I scribbled my Summer Sun Marker on the protective cover of some of the glue dots, used that as my palette, and picked up the ink with my Aqua Painter Pen to paint the center of these happy little guys.

next, I mixed my Elegant Eggplant reinker 3 drops, with 3 drops of my Shimmer White Paint and painted my flowers.

I cut up scraps of whisper White to make into sentiment flags.

I distressed the edges then inked them.

and I made a whole herd of them.  The ones on the left are from the kit, the ones on the right I made into 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 birthday cards so I re-sized the pieces to fit and changed the base card color to lighten them up a little.

Phew, one swap and 4 birthdays down. Come on back tomorrow to see the next project won’t you, and don’t forget to leave me a comment to enter for the blog candy.  That would be the other thing I have been working on all weekend.  The Pre-cut kits for this months’ Tutorial.  Thank you for all your orders, the first batch will be out tomorrow -

thanks so much for visiting, see you tomorrow my stamping friends and hope you had some time to get some ink on your fingers this weekend too.
