Summer Breeze Creative Class

It was all smiles at yesterday's Summer Breeze Creative Class.  I meant to get more pics of the rest of you who attended, next time!

Once a month I hold a Creative Class where we make home decor items as well as projects and some cards.  
If you think you might be interested shoot me off an email at

This month we made a few more cards than we usually do.  The main project were these beautiful driftwood hearts.  It takes sometime to puzzle piece all the driftwood together.   

Look how beautiful and different they all look!

It was a fun filled morning yesterday with these young ladies.
Our next generation of creatives!  The laughter, energy and creativity made the day.  It's great to see these young ladies interested and wanting to be creative!

It was all about succulents.  We made white washed peat pots
filled with succulents, wood pallet garden signs and hand stamped cards.

Masking 101


   The last few posts I have showed you the many ways to use the
new stamp set Grown with Love.   There have been many questions as to how to create the look of the stacked pots or over stamped pots.  
    Check out the video below to see how to do masking 101.
           I seriously made a quick video, no judgement!!! 
                                       It's pretty basic!

        Okay,  now that you've seen how to do this,  give it a try!
Below is another masked card with the terra cotta pots.  Easy to do.

Grown with Love

I can't get enough of the Grown with Love stamp set or succulents!
I masked these three pots together to create this tower of pots.
Then just stamp the succulents of if you don't have succulents, stamp some flowers out of the pots. 
Think you want the set yet?

Grown with Love

and..... just like that, it's monday.
Trying to get a move on it this sloooow moving morning.
Tried another hand at the Grown with Love.  This set is so sweet!
This time I stamped three of the terra cotta pots in a row.  
This set makes it so easy to build on.
Color directly onto your flower stamp with different colored markers and then stamp.  I stamped some extra of the ferns and fussy cut them out to add to the other pots.

Grown with Love

Hey!  how about some more love?!  
Grown with Love is back.
To make the Hardwood right in the center of the card you
use a marker, I used Smokey Slate.  Brush the color right onto the stamp just in the center of the stamp and then stamp directly onto the cardstock.  
I water colored with the aqua painter some shading around the base of the watering can.

Grown with Love

Oh!  I just couldn't resist using the pumpkins in this new set called Grown with Love.  

The stamp has a pumpkin and vegtables on it, but I only wanted pumpkins so I stamped extra pumpkins and cut them out.

This is our new stunning designer paper called a Whole Lot of Lovely.  These peaches are just a few sheets of what's included in the package.   Beautiful, colorful paper.

Below is the Grown with Love stamp set.
I will be showing you other cards I have made with it in upcoming posts.  You just may have to get it!!

We're having a bangin good weekend getting ready to celebrate the fourth today.   A little time in the mountains always restores the soul.  

A little lawn twister?  I think so!

Here's to a happy and safe fourth to you all, 
freedom is something that money can't buy.......
and most honorable of all are the ones who defend it for us.
So today let's honor and remember those who stand in service for us all.

Dear Friend

Sharing some watercoloring done on this card with the Aqua Painter.  It's so easy to use.  It has a barrel on the end that is filled with water.  You can use it with chalks, ink pads, refill inks, markers, watercolor pencils.  Anything that color can be blended with.   The colors used above are Old Olive and Melon Mambo.
The stamp set is Birthday Blooms
