Gorgeous Little Geisha Girl

Good Morning Stampers! It is SUPER HOT here today with lots of the sticky humidity in the air. I don't mind the heat I just don't like the humidity part! We are suppose to have mid to high 90's for the next week. I saw this cute picture the other day and this is what the heat reminds me off....

I thought that was adorable! Speaking of I have a card to share from design team member Jacqueline Smith

Jacqueline does a fabulous job with her layers. There is always something new you spot when you look at her cards. Jacqueline used the gorgeous little Geisha Girl called Yuki from the Conie Fong Collection by Sweet Pea Stamps. I thought initially when I saw it that Jacqueline paper pieced that beautiful dress but she didn't! She colored it with her prismacolor pencils! AWESOME! Looks so pretty! If you look in the bottom left you will see a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps - Thank You Tabs 1.  I love how Jackie used the flourish dies to look like leaves for the flowers. Beautiful card!

Don't forget if you have a chance to stamp this weekend... enter our Loves Rubberstamps Red, White & Blue Challenge this could be this week's lucky winner of the $25.00 gift voucher to our store!

Happy Stamping!

Stunning Dress Form

It's FRIDAY! YAY! Which means we get to share a Meredith Winston project! I think I say this every week but I adore Meredith's work. She is so versatile with her projects it is like Christmas everytime I open an email from her that contains one of her gorgeous creations and this week is no exception!

Isn't that stunning? Meredith used a stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Sew Lovely for that gorgeous dress form. She colored it using a combination of distress inks and pearlized water and then highlighted with copics...which creates a beautiful finish! I love the varied colors of background paper that Meredith paired on this with the fish tail ends. Looks gorgeous! Make sure to visit Meredith's Blog - Paper Canteen Creations and read about how she created this beauty!

I am off to spend the rest of the day working in the store. I am going to be adding a new stamp company to our line up... Your Next Stamp! They have so many fun images - I am excited to be able to carry them in our store! And bonus... Meredith is also on their design team so we might get to see some of her fabulous creations using their stamps too!!! Can't wait!

Enjoy your weekend!

A Bright Sunshiny Day!

Sorry for the late post today. I spent the day at the Doctor's office for my foot. I had to get a cortisone injection and then spent the rest of the day running errands. Felt like I would NEVER get home - LOL!

Today I have a GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS card to show you designed by design team member, Ceal Pritchett! Did I mention that it is GORGEOUS? Ok look at this beauty...

Ceal used the Sunflowers Stamp set from Flourishes. We will be adding this stamp set to our store when it gets a little closer to Fall. Ceal did a beautiful job coloring her flower and I love that background technique! GORGEOUS! I think I said that already :) This would definately brighten your day!

I have to confess that Sunflowers are one of my FAVORITE flowers! I love them! I thought I would share a couple of photographs I took when our family traveled through North Dakota on our way to Minot. We went to visit my baby brother who is in the Air Force and was being deployed to Iraq, so we saw him off on his tour.

SUNFLOWER FIELDS!!! I had NO IDEA that they had fields of these until we drove through miles and miles of them! What a gorgeous sight!

Another thing that I didn't know is that they come in a LOT of different varieties until I fould some beautiful pictures of different kinds on Pinterest. I LOVE Pinterest! Check these beauties out :)


Sunflower called the RING OF FIRE!


I need to try planting a few of these! Well I am off to get some more items listed in the store! YAY! I hope you had a beautiful day full of sunshine...if nothing else at least you were able to catch some  "sun" here even if it was just in sunflower form :)

Happy Stamping!

It's Super Mom!

Good Morning everyone!

Hope your day is going well so far! Mine started off great! I have decided to buckle down and get serious about living a healthier lifestyle...eating better, know all the things we should do anyway. Well this was my FIRST official weigh in day after a full week of behaving myself...and I lost 4 pounds! YAY! I have a long way to go but I am trying to focus on taking things day-by-day and breaking down my goals in smaller, not so overwhelming increments.

I was super excited to see design team member, Lisa Rasmussen's card today because it totally fits how I am feeling after FINALLY seeing the scale moving in the right direction.... SUPER MOM!

I LOVE this Super Mom image from the Whimsy Stamps KennyK Collection. Lisa did a beautiful job with the colors and the background paper. She colored her image perfectly to match those gorgeous colors! I love the style and vintage feel of her card.

Today is supposed to be close to 100 degrees and I am going to toodle around our local lake this afternoon on my bicycle so I am going to need to rely on my "super mom" powers to get through my workout :) It doesn't seem like such a chore when I have the beautiful scenery to look at!

Happy Stamping All!

A Little Sass!

Yay! I still have the internet! Miracles never cease :)  Now I get to play catch up on all the things that I couldn't do while it was down! I don't know how I functioned without it, it was like the stone ages at my house - LOL. The saying "Don't know what you got until it is gone" is the truth...even when it comes to things like the internet!

Today I created a card that is for this week's Loves Rubberstamps Challenge, to create a card that features a red,white and blue color scheme. This week we will be giving away another $25 gift voucher for use in the store so play along!

My card uses the super cute Sassy Emma from the Sugarplums collection by C.C. Designs. I colored her using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and then used prismacolor pencils for her skin. I used the Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock that is designed for use with Alcohol Ink Markers. This makes a huge difference when you use markers like these. I hand wrote the "USA" on her shirt with a red gel pen. The Celebrate saying and the Firework Images are from a retired stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms called America the Beautiful created by the talented Kim Hughes who is the designer for Paper Smooches stamps!

I created my own background using the inlaid embossing technique and the Snowburst Embossing folder from Stampin Up!. The red circle with stars around is a Spellbinders Nestibilities - Star Circles that we just got in this weekend and will be available in our store later today!

I hope you like my card! Come play along with us in the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge :)

Happy Stamping!

Diva-Licious & Sunday Shares...On A Monday!

Hi Everyone!

Today's post will be FULL of some yummy eye candy! Today is Monday which means that we have a super cute Olivia Marmara project to share with you! AND because our internet has supposedly had it's LAST HICCUP for awhile (according to our phone company) I will also be sharing the Sunday too!

First up... Design Team Member Olivia Marmara created this Diva-Licious card!

Isn't that adorable? I LOVE the colors and the bling that Olivia added! This is an image from the Mo Manning Collection from Stamping Bella called ... what else but DIVA! This image will be added to our store with our next order from Stamping Bella so look for that! She also colored her image using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers.

And now for the Sunday Shares on this beautiful Monday afternoon! Because of our internet issues last week I am sharing the projects that our fabulous design team members created that should have posted on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday!

First up is Lisa Rasmussen whose our Wednesday artist.

She created this adorable card using the Twinkle Toes Huggabugg from Stamping Bella. We will be adding this collection to our store in the near future! I love the lace and the colors that Lisa chose for her card. This would be a great card for all types of occasions!

Next we have our Thursday artist... Ceal Pritchett

She created this SUPER CUTE card using the Pink Cat Studio stamp called Giraffe and Monkey. We will be adding this stamp to our next order with them so look for it soon! I love how Ceal paper pieced her giraffe to match the background paper. Very cute idea! This would be a great image for both boy and girl baby cards!

And last but not least... our Fabulous Friday artist.... Meredith Winston! I always love seeing what Meredith designs next because she is so versatile in her creations! Take a look at this cutie...

Meredith used the Lawn Fawn stamp set called Partly Cloudy. She did an awesome job with the layers and all the texture. I love her use of the corrugated cardboard and the colors are just beautiful together! This would definately be a cheerful pick me up on a rainy day!

I hope you enjoyed all of the cards today! Hopefully this week our internet will cooperate so we can resume our regular posting days! Be sure to visit Loves Rubberstamps later tonight... I will be adding lots of new goodies that arrived while the internet was down!

Also you still have time to play in this week's Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge - we are giving away a $25.00 shopping spree to one lucky player!

A Gorgeous Timepiece

Happy Saturday everyone!

I want to first start off by apologizing for not being able to post anything since Tuesday. Our internet went down Tuesday evening and it finally came back up yesterday afternoon. Ahhh the perks of living in a small town of about 300 people....We had to wait for our phone company to get some kind of part that keeps our internet on. I don't know how we lived before the internet - LOL! It was bang your head very frustrating last few days! But the part has been fixed so hopefully no more crashes - fingers and toes crossed :)

Because I wasn't able to post Wednesday's - Friday's cards created by our AMAZING design team members...I will post these for tomorrow's Sunday Shares so you don't miss their gorgeous creations!
Since today is Saturday that means we have another amazing creation designed by design team member, Jacqueline Smith to share and it is a real beauty!

Jacqueline used one of my favorite stamps from the Stamp It Australia collection from Crafter's Companion called Rose Clock. Her coloring is AWESOME! She used prismacolor pencils to create that gorgeous flower! This is just beautiful!

Be sure to check out Jacqueline's Blog to see the details on all those pretty layers!

Don't forget... There is plenty of time to play in the Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge - this week we are giving away a $25.00 shopping spree to the store!

Happy Stamping!

Little Rainbow Birdies

Good Morning!

I love Tuesdays because that is when we start a new Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge! It is so fun to see how everyone is inspired by the challenges and what they create. This week there will be a $25.00 gift voucher to shop at the Loves Rubberstamps store for the lucky winner so be sure and play along!

This week's challenge is a Pinterest Photo Inspiration challenge. I am addicted to Pinterest...I can admit it :)

This was the photograph that was chosen for inspiration:

This photograph is called Food of the Rainbow by - Henry Hargreaves

Doesn't that look yummy? Here is the card that I was inspired to create...

I colored the sweet little birdies to match the colors of the ice cream in the photograph! Could you imagine seeing a little birdie display like that in your garden? The little girl image is from the Wee Stamps Collection from Whimsy stamps called Peggy. This is a new stamp that we just had arrive! I will have it listed in the store by tomorrow along with some new release June stamps from Whimsy! Totally excited about that!

To create my scene I used a few different C.C. Designs Cutters Dies.  The first was the Fence Border. I cut out two fences and cut the posts off one and popped them up to make it more dimensional. I had a texture plate that was wood grain looking and just inked it with my ink pad and pressed it on the posts before popping them. I also sponged the edges and punched the top post with a fiskars border punch that I had. I layered a scrap piece on pink pirouette cardstock from Stampin Up! behind the hearts so you can see them.

In front of the fence I used the Flower Border Cutters Die and the Grass Border Cutters Die.
The flowers I did twice and then cut just the flower tops off and glued them on the green base. The grass piece I ran through a crimper before placing it on my card.

I also cut out my Peggy image and popped her up on dimensionals too! Lots of cutting and popping going on on my card today! That sounds like it should be a hip hop dance move - the Cut & Pop...ok.. cheesy I know but it is early in the morning :)

To finish my scene I just created a cloudy sky using a sponge and scallop punchie and then stamped a sentiment from Paper Smooches - Get Outta Town set on the corner. The little rainbow birdies are also from the Whimsy Stamps Peggy Stamp, I just stamped the bird multiple times and cut it out and popped them up using glue dots. I colored my birds and image using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and added just a little bit of prismacolor to deepen some shadows. This was a fun card to make! I hope you enjoy it and play along in our Blog Challenge! I would LOVE to see how you are inspired by this fun photograph :)

Happy Stamping!

He Loves Me...He Loves Me...LOTS!

Today has been a pretty tough day for me. I think I mentioned in an earlier post that outside running Loves Rubberstamps, I also work in law enforcement. We lost one of our Officer's yesterday in a boating accident as he was celebrating Father's Day with his family. I had to work at the police department today and we are all in just a state of shock. It is a very sad and tragic loss for not only his family, but for all that knew him.

Olivia's card today could not have been more perfect to share with you because it reminds us to tell our loved ones and friends that you love them lots whenever you have the opportunity because life is definately too short!

Olivia used the super cute stamp He Loves Me from Crafty Sentiment Designs. We are actually waiting on an order of some of the new release stamps to arrive and as soon as they do we will be adding them to the store! Olivia colored her image using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and she did a beautiful job!

I love the bright colors and the fun accents that Olivia used. It brings a smile to my face which I really needed after today! Please visit Olivia's Blog - ORM Crafty Nights to see all the details on this cutie!

Happy Stamping!

My Sunday Shares - June 17th

Happy Father's Day everyone!

Hope you had a chance to relax and spend time with family today! I spent the day with my husband and kids and we had a great lunch together. I am sorry for the late post scheduler for some reason didn't post when I thought I had set it for. I didn't have a chance to check this morning before we left for the day!

Today I have some super adorable cards to share with you! I am so excited! The first one is by paper artist, Wendy Ramlakhan. Wendy is AMAZING with her copic coloring skills! I could literally spend hours looking at her beautiful cards! Here is one of my many favorites that she has created:

Wendy used the Patches 'N Braids stamp from Belles 'N Whistles. I absolutely adore the colors that Wendy used to color her image and it matches the pretty greens in her papers perfectly. I love her sky background too! I am super excited too because we are going to be adding the stamp company Your Next Stamp to our line-up as soon as order arrives and I saw that Wendy is one of their senior design team members and she also designs for The Greeting Farm which is another company we will soon be adding!! DOUBLE YAY! I will  get to see lots more of her gorgeous creations :) Check out Wendy's Blog - Sugar Pea Designs - to see more of her beautiful work! She also has some AWESOME tutorials on coloring with copics :)

This next card I found is just too cute for words! This cutie is created by Colleen Dietrich using the Love 'N Breakfast and the My Silly Valentine stamp sets from Lawn Fawn.

I LOVE this card!  Colleen's paper piecing and little scene she created is just adorable. I love how she kept the bacground simple and the accent of the vanilla background paper is perfect! This just makes you smile! Check out Colleen's Blog - Dietrich Designs and get all the details on this sweet card!

This next card is made with one of my super favorite Mo Manning stamps called What's Cookin'? from Stamping Bella. I love to do scrapbook recipe pages and this is a great stamp to use on them.

This adorable card was created by the super talented Deb Felts whose blog is called With a Stamp and a Song.  I really love the colors that Deb chose for her card and that sweet cupcake paper is perfect! I also love the green polka dot ribbon that she choose to use because it matches her apron! Very cute! Deb did an amazing job coloring this sweet little girl too!

Today's last card that I would like to share is the one created by our winner of last week's Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge - Laura of The Crafty Sister. She created the cutest card using the Flynn's Berry Happy Day stamp from Stamping Bella. This cute stamp is part of the Tiddly Inks Collection designed by Christy Croll. TOO CUTE!

I love the way Laura colored her image, leaving the dress white with the pink strawberry accents. This stamp is perfect to use with that cute strawberry designer paper because the strawberry shapes are pretty similiar to the stamp. Laura did an excellent job coloring her strawberries to match the paper too! Visit Laura's Blog to see the list of copic colors that she used to color this sweet little girl!

Speaking of our blog challenges - there is still time to enter this week's Love's Rubberstamps Blog Challenge of Masculine Cards! You could be this week's lucky winner :)

I really hope that you enjoyed today's shares and that you had a wonderful Father's Day!

Ahhh..To Be in Paris

Well my morning did not start off very well at all! I can only hope that it gets better from here... and I so would love to be in Paris right now - LOL!

Today's beautiful card is created by design team member, Jacqueline Smith. She used the gorgeous Time In Paris stamp from the Stamp It Australia series from Crafter's Companion. Her sentiments were created using Whimsy Stamps Celebration Mini Tickets.

I am always blown away by Jacqueline's cards! All of the texture and layers are amazing! Just what I needed to brighten my day!

A Gorgeous Opportunity

Good Morning!

It was a beautiful day this morning when I left for work! It is going to be a hot one today I have a feeling though. It was already 70 degrees but very humid and sticky feeling. I love the warm weather just not the humidity.

With the gorgeous weather we have been having it makes me want to get outside and toodle around on a bicycle. We have a gorgeous lake that has a 5 mile long walking or bicycle path around it...problem is I haven't rode a bike since I was about 12... before I toodle around the lake I need to practice first or I would probably end up going swimming!

Today's card reminds me of a gorgeous summer day with the soft colors that design team member Meredith Winston used on her card. I love the papers that Meredith chose to accent her card with. The yellow polka dots, paired with a faded blue jean color and that beautiful pastel plaid in blues and yellows are so pretty together. The focal piece on Meredith's card is a verse from the Vintage Verses stamp set by Gourmet Rubber Stamps. I love this saying too... it is a great piece of advice that you need to sometimes be reminded of. Sometimes you have to create your own opportunities instead of waiting around for them to come to you. Pretty powerful! This stamp set is one of my super favs and can be used for so many occasions! It is a must have in my book :)

I also love Meredith's layers of texture and bling! It really makes the whole card pop and it is truely a stunning piece of art! Visit Meredith's Blog - Paper Canteen Creations to see all the details on this beauty!

I hope you enjoy your day and may it be full of many positive opportunities for you :)

Happy Stamping!

It Takes a LOOOONG Time....

Good Morning!

It is another two (maybe 3) cup coffee morning for me...LOL! Besides running Loves Rubberstamps I also work full time in law enforcement and this week has been a week so far! We are getting all new computer programs for the MDT's in the squad cars and a new CAD sytem and nothing works how it is supposed to. So it has been a TAAAAD stressful! Week's like these are the ones I am thankful for having the store and stamping therapy :)

On a much happier note...look at this cutie!

This adorable card was created by design team member Ceal Pritchett. She used a super cute S.W.A.L.K. stamp called Old Friend. I love the way Ceal colored her image. I have a hard time with red hair and she did it very well!

If you plan on making the men in your life a Father's Day card... don't forget to enter it in our Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge for Masculine Cards... you might be our winner for a shopping spree in our store!

Dropping you a line...

Good Morning Stampers!

Hope you are having a wonderful morning so far! I am a little tired this morning and found it a little tough to get going. Had to have an extra large cup of my morning vitamin....caffeine :)

One thing that did gave me a smile this morning was this super sweet card created by design team member Lisa Rasmussen!


I love the soft grays with the pink and red. So pretty! Reminds me of a sweet summer day! Lisa used Ramona Fishing from Stamping Bella.

Be sure to visit Lisa's Blog - Eat, Sleep, Stamp to see all the details on this cutie!

Let's Play a Round of...GOLF!

Good Morning Stampers!

Today's card was created for inspiration for this week's Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge - Masculine Cards. Be sure to play along because you could win a shopping spree to the Loves Rubberstamps Store of up to $50! The more people that play... the higher the shopping spree :)

Here is my card...

My card was actually a really quick card to make. The golf scene was inspired by Michelle Zindorf and I followed her tutorial to create it. I am not very good with the brayer like Michelle is, so I use all sponging instead of using a brayer.

I added the sentiment on the golf scene using the Flourishes stamp set called A Guiding Light.

My Stampin Up! More Mustard Layer was stamped repeatedly with the All About Men sentiment stamp from Great Impressions Stamps. I stamped it using the More Mustard Ink because I wanted it to be subtle. I then sponged the edges with early espresso ink also from Stampin Up! The thing I LOVED about the All About Men stamp is that my more mustard layer is 4" x 5 1/4" and the stamp fit PERFECTLY clear across the front!

Here is a close up of my golf ball so you can see it actually has dimples in it like a real golf ball would. You can't see it in the other picture because they are very subtle and the light was not the greatest. Sorry for the yellow tinge on this one, one of my lights burned out in my light box right in the middle of taking pics!

My ball is popped up using dimensionals. I also popped the golf scene layer up on dimensionals as well.
Really fun and quick card that packs a big "wow"!

Hope you play along in our Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge!

Happy Stampin!

Hello Stampers!

Hope you enjoyed your weekend! I didn't get as much done around the house as I wanted to but that is how it goes sometimes! Later today, I will be on the hunt for glass sun tea jars. A friend of mine told me that she found them at a store thats about a half hour drive from here. All the stores around here only have them in plastic! I don't think I want my tea brewing in the sun in plastic. Glass sun tea jars used to be so easy to find but not anymore, at least not in Iowa. They are a remnant of the good old days here!

Speaking of the good old days... today's card designed by design team member, Olivia Marmara has a very vintage look to it which I love. The colors of the paper and the way she colored her adorable fairy, with the sprinkling of glitter all gives it that vintage feeling. It is such a beautiful card!

I love it! Olivia did an amazing job and every element she chose to put on this piece is just a perfect accent. The image that she used is an Elizabeth Bell design called Crocus from the Twinkle Toes Collection designed for Sweet Pea Stamps.

Be sure to visit Olivia's Blog and see all the details on this gorgeous card!

Don't forget to play in our Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge - Anything Goes...submissions close at 9pm and a new challenge will post at midnight! The more people we have play ... the bigger our prize gets :)

My Sunday Shares - June 10th

Good Afternoon Stampers!

Hope you enjoyed your weekend...mine is just starting so I treated myself to sleeping in this morning :) You have to do that every now and then I think! I have a LOOOONG list of things I need to get done around the house today...mow the yard, dishes, laundry, dust...well you get the jist of my day...all of the not so fun house chores...BUT after I am done I am going to go play in my stamp studio...I am looking forward to THAT!

Today's shares will be a little different. I didn't have much time this week to look around the galleries or do my company searches so I decided today to share some cool you tube videos that I have in my "favorites" with you, instead of cards today.

Today's videos are all created by Darlene Devries of She posts a new video on you tube about every Wednesday. I was searching around about creating with copics on you tube one day and came across this video she did. I loved the look of her card using copic markers on patterened paper. She uses Stampin Up! supplies but you could easily use any light colored scrapbook designer papers or stamps for this technique.


The second video I want to share with you is one about creating a card using multiple embossing powders. This card is really pretty! Not only does this video have a beautiful also had a COOL TIP on how to create smaller frames with your layer dies. Doing this doubles the sizes of layers you can get out of your layer dies!!


I thought the idea of tracing the outside of your die and then cutting it out with your scissors was genius. You can get 2 sizes of layers for each die! This would work with many die brands too. Perfect for when you want just a very subtle layer.

This last video I will share with you really showcases the way Darlene colors with her copics. I really loved this method and thought that it is a great way for beginners to achieve the professional looking blends with copics. This card that she creates using a Hero Arts cupcakes set showcases this coloring style perfectly. Plus I love cupcakes :)


I hope you enjoyed today's shares. If you want to check out Darlene's other videos...and believe me she has a LOT of great ones... you can visit her you tube channel - darlene003

We will be starting to stock the copic markers at Loves Rubberstamps soon! YAY! I am excited for that! Hero Arts is also on our list of suppliers that we will be adding in the future too :)

Happy Stampin Everyone!

Lazy Daisy Days

Good Morning Stampers!

Hope your weekend is off to a good start! After work today I have a few errands to run and then my weekend will start! YAY! Saturday nights my hubby races a sportmod race car so the evenings are spent at the race track which is always fun :)

Other than the races...I plan on spending my weekend holed up in my stampin studio having some quality "Me" time...that is my plan anyway so we will see how it goes :)

Today I have a gorgeous treat for you! Today's card is created by Design Team Member - Jacqueline Smith. This talented lady knows how to layer! I can spend hours looking at her creations and spot some new detail or embellishment that I didn't see before! I love that about her mini works of art. Take a look at this beauty...

Those flowers are gorgeous! The attention to detail that Jacqueline puts in to each and every one of her cards just amazes me. I love how she colored her flowers and created all the popped layers for texture.
Those beautiful flowers are from the Flourishes Stamp Set called Gerber Daisies and the sentiment is from the Orchids Stamp Set also by Flourishes. We will be adding both of these sets to our line up in the near future.

Be sure to visit Jackie's Blog - Jacqueline's Creative Works of Art and check all the details on this beautiful summer stunner!

If you find yourself with some time to stamp this weekend... enter our Week 3 Blog Challenge - Anything Goes ... we are giving away a shopping spree of up to $50 in our store! This week's challenge ends Monday night at 9pm CST.

What? Me? Old? Naaaah!

Good Morning Stampers!

Hope you are having a wonderful day so far! Here the sun is shining...birds are chirping...and I have a gorgeous card to share with you today created by our design team member - Meredith Winston! Couldn't ask for anything better!

Isn't this gorgeous? I LOVE it! And see...If you have to grow can just not grow up! Hee Hee! I love the stamp set that Meredith chose to use on her card today. It is called Vintage Verses from Gourmet Rubber Stamps and it is one of my favorite sets. I know... I know... I have LOTS of favorites :)  I love the floral accents that Meredith chose too, those pretty felt flowers are gorgeous...and she created them HERSELF with her die-namics rolled rose die...AWESOME!! We will be adding the die-namics dies and also some stamps from My favorite Things in the near future :)

I really admire Meredith's ability to create a card having a verse as the focal image. I seem to have a hard time with that because I always want to add a picture image with it :) Some verses, like this one, are perfect by themselves!

Take some time to visit Meredith's Blog - Paper Canteen Creations and read about how she created this beauty! One thing I love about Meredith is she has this wonderful ability to make every card unique and is also very versatile in the style she uses. It is always exciting to see her creations because you never know what she will wow you with next! 

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Stamping!
