Freedom




Happy Memorial Day 
Today we remember all those service men and women, who lost their lives fighting for our freedom. Because of them and our current military,our flag still stands for freedom.
 I would like to say thank you to each and every one of them, and to the families who lost loved ones, thank you for supporting them in their fight. May God bless America and those who serve to protect our freedom.

For my card I used the Irresistibly Yours paper from Sale-A-bration and the stripes for the Gorgeous Grunge set

Ironing


Hi there and thanks for stopping by,
I have to admit, I do not like ironing at all, to the point I do not iron anything, I take it straight from the dryer and hang it up, but I love to iron on cards.
 This is one of the cards we did at my last technique class, the technique is Iron Off Embossing and I love how this one turned out. The flower image looks as if it was stamped first, but it was actually stamped last after we ironed off the embossing order. My customer really liked this card I hope you do as well. 

And Graduation



June also brings a need for Grad cards, This one is a card we made at my technique class yesterday. If you are in need of graduation cards, shoot me an email with your order and I will gladly get them made for you. I am entering this one in the Curtain Call

Weddings



My card today is for the challenge over at CASology. June is the month for weddings, so I have started the wedding cards. if you are in need of one or more, just contact me and place an order.  For this one I used a set that is retiring Your Perfect Day. Colored with Copic markers, added dimension by stamping twice, fussy cutting the pieces, embossing them and popping them up on top of the stamped one.

Lovely Day



I am also sharing this one on the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog today
To get the colorful background,  I inked up the Leafy Background stamp in Versamark ink and stamped off once to get the subtle look, then sponged different colors of Pan Pastels over the background. Next I stamped the image from the set Sunshine & Flowers and colored the stems, leaves and outlined the flowers with Copic markers.
Today is the last day that you can get this beautiful background stamp Leafy Flourish Backgrounds & More, for the low price of $23.40 no coupon needed. 



Here are the two sets I used on my card

Challenge and a Sneak Peek




I finally got my new Stampin Up catalogs in and a couple new sets, so this card is a sneak peek of one of the new sets. I love it.  I colored it with Copic markers, fussy cut out the flower and popped it up, and added some sequins to finish it off.
I am entering this one in the challenge at CAS on Sunday of Cheer Up, Buttercup to make a card to bring a smile to someone. 

I am having my Catalog reveal party on the 29th, if you're local and want to come shoot me an email at ceal331 at gmail dot com

Wheels



Today's CAS challenge at Splitcoast Stampers is Wheels and this bicycle2stamp set from The Stamps of Life was perfect to make a card with.  This was a super easy card to make. I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored it with Copic markers. The basket is a die for the coordinating Bicycle Die Set.
