I was inspired by 2 wonderful cards to create this one. TSacrison and Melissa 85 both over at SCS. I combined TSacrisons layout with Melissa's Shabby Chic style and created this beauty!!!! Well done ladies!!! this is one of my favorites. I am still amazed with the sharing that stampers do. We uplift and inspire one another, sharing in the love of the craft! After 12 years I am still in awe for everyone's generosity! So to all my stamping Sisters a big heartfelt Thank You!

This is a style that I learned over at U Stamp last month. I love the layout and I just added a little bit of Easter. You HAVE to check it out!!!! I stumbled upon this wonderful learning place when I visited Becky Roberts does AMAZING work! Go on over and check her out! Tell her I sent you. You will for sure want to check out U Stamp as well!

Inspiration from hsummers over at SCS mixed with the Dabbed Shimmers technique. What a Beauty! The last 3 techniques I learned over at She will keep you learning the latest trends and creating the most wonderful cards. Thanks Pat!
This is one that I created with a technique added in. This technique is called Mono Dies. I think it adds a lot of visual and actual texture. What perfect colors for spring!

A Taste of Stamping Club

I have been asked what types of things I do with my clubs. At club night I try to do 3 cards either learning technique, style, or a combination of the 2. I do not remember where the inspiration came from for this one but I added the Glassy Embossing technique and this is what they did for that.
Do not shoot me for this one. I had a request to do 1 Christmas card a month so by the time Christmas comes maybe they would know what set they wanted to use for their cards this year. So, TrishG on SCS inspired this little creation.

Weddings are going to be in full swing here very soon. I just love the elegant look of Black and White. They are very classy. I was inspired by cischroed on SCS. I made a few changes and this again is my take on her card.
For this card I was inspired by not 1 but 2 people over at SCS: Erin K and mugsie. I combined ones color choice with the other's layout and this is what I came up with.
I wanted to add in an Easter card since that is the next holiday coming up. I was inspired by a card that was on

A Few From the Last 10-10

I am really starting to like the Extreme's! I saw this beauty on Splitcoast Stampers as well by the poster: cindy canada. I traded the snowboarder for the skateboarder since we are heading into our spring now. I also traded colors and this is my recreation.

I have more posts that I will be adding hopefully tomorrow. I hope you will stop back by and have another look. Hope you have a GREAT stamping day!

I am always looking for a nice masculine card and i thought this one fit the bill. I was inspired by Connie from I changed a few things and this is my take on her card.

Samples From Past 10-10 Classes

Here are some samples from some of my past 10-10 classes that I do at my home every month. These are just a few of some of my favorite ones. This one I was inspired by a card dcorder posted on SCS. Here I created my own background paper with Stampin Ups! Extreme Elements set. I also added a piece of card stock instead of ribbon where the greeting is.
