Family Tree

On a non stamp related subject.  I have not had much time to stamp lately but I am really going to try to get to it today.  September is a very busy birthday month in our family and I am a bit behind already.  School has started and our schedule this year is a bit over whelming.  I wanted to share with you something I made earlier in the summer.  I have this section of wall in my entry way that is right next to the door.  The ceiling in there is vaulted to cover both floors so I had to have something on the wall.  I used to have a set of 3 pictures hanging there but if the door was shut too hard (remember I have 6 kids, 5 of which are boys) the pictures would fall, hit the stairs and break.  So I decided to make a vinyl wall art that would fill in the area.  My kids are growing up and branching out (lol).  2 are now married and we just delivered the 3rd to his 1st year of college. So I cut this tree out and placed the kids, wives & grand kids' names within the branches.  I love the way it turned out!

Back at it!

Yes, I am still alive!  I have been so busy this summer I am actually looking forward to school beginning so I can get back into a regular schedule.  I have been home maybe 2 weeks this summer so my stamps have been neglected.  When I did get home last week I had to prepare for a vinyl class I am teaching at our church next month (thought it might be nice to at least have an idea of what I am doing).  So I was determined to get my hand s a bit inky today.  This is one of my new favorite stamps sets.

Baby Duckies

I never have enough baby cards so usually when I make one I try to make a girl and boy version.  I have not been drawn to a baby set like this one in many years.  Since they offered the set and the framelits it was hard to pass up.

They are available separately or at a bundle price. Such an easy way to get great simple baby cards.  I used the Work of Art chevron to make my background.  I did have to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get things lined up.  I used the Retired set One in a Million for the word Baby.  That will be a set I am going to have problems letting go (along with a few other word sets)
If you noticed there is also a piercing template that goes with this set.   Which adds just that perfect extra touch.  
Another of my favorite products is the Thick Baker's Twine.  I am drawn to making cards in the colors I have. Lol

Painted Butterflies

I am beginning to think that the Work of Art Set will be one of my go to sets.  It can add so many aspects to a card either bold or subtle.  With my busy summer schedule, the cards I do get to make are the quick and easy ones.

Paper Size: A2 4.25" x 5.5"

Birthday Ticket

My summer has been crazy busy and it does not want to slow down.  I am sorry for my scattered post.  I have made time to work on cards and fill orders but sooo many have gone out the door without a picture taken or a duplicate made. :-(  This is a combo of 2 of my new favorite sets.  I am always in need of a masculine set and the Traveler set fills that very well.  The Work of Art set is a great way to add color to an image without having to color it in.  I missed my spiral punch very much.  One of my favorite things to make with it is the film strips.  It was the first thing I had to do with this set.

Stamps: Traveler, That''s the Ticket. Work of Art
Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Typeset DSP
Paper Size: A2 4.25" x 5.5"
Ink: Memento Black Ink, Hello Honey, Coastal Cabana, Old Olive
Accessories:Spiral Border Punch, Ticket Duo Builder Punch
