Love You

It's New Years Eve and I thought I'd share another peek of the newly released stamps and dies from Impression Obsession

On this card, I used three New Dies

The Swans are so elegant and Beautiful

I paired the dies with  Love You sentiment from the Valentines Hearts Clear Stamp Set

Quite a Quick and Easy Card to make, but elegant I think!

If you are headed out to ring in the New Year, be Safe!!!!

Happy Stamping!

Impression Obsession FABULOUS Valentine Release!!!

I am OVER THE MOON with the latest Stamps and Dies from Impression Obsession Stamps!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the heart stamps and well......this sentiment stamp totally cracked me up~~

The Sentiment is from the Cupid was Here set by Kalani Allred

I absolutely LOVE her Yummy Yummy Sentiments!!!

I knew when I saw this that I had to make a Slider Card!

You can find the fantastic Tutorial HERE on Splitcoaststampers

I used Prima Engraver 6x6 paper as I wanted to create a Masculine Themed Valentine

I embellished the card with one of the Sweet Cupid Dies from the Cupid Die Set

and a Tiny Heart from the Conversation Heart Die  that coordinates with the Conversation Heart  Stamp Set. As A Pull for the Slider, I tied on a Tim Holtz Key with Hemp and added some chipboard gears that i've had kicking around for a bit...... I distressed the edges of my paper with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink. These new stamps have finally kicked my Mojo Butt and have my creative Juices Flowing!

Be sure to head on over to IO Stamps to check out all the new Goodies!

Happy Stamping!

DT Thursday with Impression Obsession!

I hope that you had a Wonderful Christmas with Friends and Family

We enjoyed a Wonderfully Quiet Day with those closest to us, who mean the most!

Now that there are no little ones in the house, our morning was late and leisurely. We shared our gifts around 10 a.m. followed by a lovely Brunch of Sausages and Wife Saver Casserole.

My Grandmother used to make this recipe. It's quite enjoyable because it's all assembled the evening before, which allows you to just pop it into the oven an hour before you want to eat.

Here is the link to the Recipe

I wanted to share another quick and easy but elegant Christmas Card with you!

When making cards in bulk, I like to have a simple design to make the task much easier!

I cut Cardstock Pieces at 4.25" x 11 "

I then Used Tone on Tone Real Red Ink to stamp the Watercolor Poinsettia Background

I stamped the Beautiful Sentiment in Gold Pigment Ink and Embossed with Gold Glory Embossing Powder. I added a small Faux Bow to the Bottom left of the card to pretty it up just a touch!

The Sentiment is called

Enjoy the rest of your Holiday!

Happy Stamping!

Bows and Holly- Z Becky Brown

Good Morning!!!

Once again, I apologize for being so scarce on my Blog.....I hope that you are all well and well on your way to having your Christmas to do list accomplished. I'm getting closer, but still have some things to tend to. Today, I'll decorate the tree. I'm looking forward to good company to adorn the boughs, to share laughter and some positive energy!

I generally find Christmas to be a bit of a stressful time, but this year I look forward to it. To surround myself with the spirit of the season, to remind myself what is truly important in my life and to transition into a New Year, leaving the past behind me.....learning from my mistakes, letting go and forgiving.

I created this fun purse to celebrate the Season. This Gorgeous Paper from The Farmhouse Paper Company. I embellished the purse with Die Cuts from Impression Obsession

Ribbon from Michaels and Stampin' Up!!!

I think you'll find that I'm going to be around a lot more. My lack of creativity has taken it's toll and it's time to revisit the aspects of me that i've put on a shelf for various reasons.

Have a wonderful day and I'll see you really soon!!!!

I Promise.....and I am a Woman of my word!
