Unmounted Rubber Stamp Storage!

I thought I would share how I store my un-mounted red rubber stamps with you today! I bought a pretty colored extra large 3-ring binder! After I cut my stamps (that weren't cut yet) I kind of arranged them on the page to see how they would fit. Next I stamped each one onto some very generic/cheap white cardstock. Next, I ran it through my laminator and punched holes for the binder. Then I "stuck" my stamps on the back of the page! I love to keep them nice and tidy like this!! I think I need to make a nice cover for my binder now!!

Dogwood Branch!

I thought I saw a birdie!

The weather was so nice today for the official first day of spring! - mid 70's and sunny! We spent alot of time outside! The girls love watching the birds and from time to think they can actually catch one. They looked so cute trying to figure out where the birdies disappeared to as they bolted towards the feeders. Luckily I had my camera with me and caught a couple of nice shots during my favorite time of days! I love the golden sunlight in the evenings. It always makes for more dramatic photos with the long shadows and golden glows!

Granny's Bradford Pear Tree!

Nothing says "spring" to a southerner like the blooming of the Bradford Pear trees lining streets and neighborhoods everywhere! Granny has one in her yard and I look forward to it's blooms every year! This year they are more beautiful than last year. As I walked closer to the tree you could hear the buzzing of the bees!! Busy as bees doing their jobs, pollinating away! I took a few pics to share!
Oh, and by the way, these trees do not produce fruit as their name would have you believe.

Piggy back frogs!

It rained so hard the other night! It was a real frog strangler! The next day I was out in the garden shed and saw these 2 babies frogs hitching a ride on their mama's back! So sweet!

Signs of Life!

I've been having so much fun with my digital stamping that I forget that this is still my "personal" blog! So here are a few posts about my outdoor life! Spring is on the way and the first sign is seeing the daffodils bloom! I set these babies out last year. They were my Valentine flowers last year! It was so exciting to see them pop up this year - right through the snow we recently had on Valentines weekend! My daylilys will be next!
My daffodils look so tiny and delicate compared to my Granny's. Come to find out - daffodils will continue to grow larger with every year. Another trait is that more will pop up around that same area every year! You really get a bang for your buck when you plant daffodils! Bulbs have become my favorite thing to plant - cause you do it once and your done!!

Sneak Peak - Baby Animals!

Coming Soon! A whole series of Baby Animals - Digi Stamps! There will be 20+ digis and will be sold individually or discounted as a group. These drawings from my sketchbook were inspired by a blanket that my Granny made for me when I was a little baby!

Stamp Swap - Lindsay!

For my next stamp swap I traded with Lindsay from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. She also designs for My Graphico.
I chose Lindsay's beautiful set of Fancy Flowers b/c Daffodils are my most favorite flower and seeing them in this mason jar just reminds me of Granny!! Be sure to visit Lindsay's blog for tons of inspiration!
For this 4x5.5" card I created a little end table in photoshop with basic drawing tools and set my jar on top of the table. The font is Monika. I printed this little scene out onto GinaK 80# pure luxury cardstock and cut with Nestablilities Die Cut Labels 8 (mega). I printed the daffodils again by themselves (same size) onto GinaK 120# heavy cardstock - colored and cut out with sharp blade. I covered the table with a little scrap of paper and made some nice trim with "fibers" by Paper Studio. I colored the jar with Copics BG34,32 & B02 to mix in a little faint blue water! The stems are G24,28 & the flowers are Y17,15. I used YG01 to go around the flowers and jar (& edge of nestie frame) to give it a glow effect. I also used a Yellow Gel Glitter Pen by Inc. Starlightz (from walmart) for glitter on sentiment, a little on the flower petals and around the outside border of the nestie frame. I colored both flowers & jars b/c you can still see the one below when you look at an angle. I used 3D foam squares to place top flowers. It adds a nice 3D look to the card and you get that extra "shadow" effect which is nice! Also the background patterned paper is 6x6 Everyday Blessings by PaperTrey Ink.

Stamp Swap - Linda!

I participated in my first "stamp swap" this week with 2 lovely ladies.. Linda Of Tortagialla and Lindsay of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. In this post I'll show you the card I made with Linda's adorable 5 piece Owl digi stamp set! Linda has some really creative crafty inspiration on her blog here!
First of all, I created the owls & branch scene in Photoshop. I knew my card was going to a bigger size 5x7 b/c I wanted to use ALL of the cute little owls. I couldn't leave any of them out!! The tree branch came from Obsidian Dawn. The font used was Bewitched. After I got the owls sitting on the branch like I wanted I printed the piece onto GinaK 80# pure luxury cardstock.
Next step was to die cut with Nestabilities Labels 8 (mega). I colored with too many copics to mention! But generally just bright/fun colors! Then I covered the branch with my clear zip dry glue and sprinkled on my Sugar Coating brown glitter in "bon bon"! I went around the border with my lavender copic (I tried to match my lavender ribbon) Then did faux stitching around the border with a fine tip purple marker. Then I tied my lavender bow with my bow easy that I got from Susanna's Custom Art & Card Designs!
I hope you like what I did with these cute owls!!
