I had a crazy weekend, I had a Valentine Stamp Camp scheduled on Saturday that has been in the works since last November! We had ice and sleet that gave us bad roads and a driveway that I could have gone ice skating on if I knew how and was a "LOT" younger. So mid week after looking at the forcast I decided on a one hour delay (sounds like school schedules doesn't it) then on Saturday I knew it would be impossible to have it and started calling my team members and the Valentine Stamp Camp guest to change to next Saturday!
I am a guest blogger with a Stampin UP Stampers X-press demo group each Monday, so on Sunday night if I have not done anything about it I start creating.
Well tonight I knew I had to create something for our blog and I took my basket of new products that I had for display for Saturday's Stamp Camp and pulled it back to my stamp room and just stared at it all!
Where to start. I took the first stamp set in the basket Oh' Whale! and started putting cardstock together with the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP and just thought this piece looked like water. I felt like I needed another color to offset all the blue and I had a real red heart punched out on my stamp table and it worked great for the whales heart. I knew I needed something else and decided to stamp Get Whale Soon in real red also. So that was my thought process, I know we each probably do it different. I added the clouds by sponging around a scallop circle that I punched out.
Now I have a new goal, this week I am going to make something from all the products I bought instead of in March when SAB is over and I realize I have not even inked up some of the stamp sets. That doesn't happen to any of you does it? :) Stay tuned.
Products below are from the Spring Catalog page 28-29! You can check it out HERE or email me and I will mail one to you.
