Yeah Summer!  Are you ready to take a break from all that garden/yard work and stamp?  Check out this month's projects:

Puzzle Card (2 flavors):


Do you notice the heart is 4 puzzle pieces?

This new die is absolutely lovely.  It took a few passes thru the Big Shot to get it 100% cut, but it's soooo worth it!  This card is really easy.  So easy I felt a bit guilty that I'd be letting you down.  I always seem to want to teach at least one little thing with each card….  I guess this lesson is Less is More.  I love this card.  I think it's plenty fancy!

I know we just used the Magnolia suite, but here it is again.  The project box was sitting right beside me as I made these samples.  The words included in the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set work perfectly with this card.  Yup, Good Morning Magnolia again (… smiles…).


This puzzle card is a bit more traditional type puzzle.  I think any beautiful DSP is a perfect answer to the question Which Paper Should I Use.  

This card is straight forward… but, I don't know if I was just having a 'moment' or if this will happen to everyone – assembling the puzzle is kinda challenging.  I know, you are laughing.  You're probably thinking that if that's the hardest part of the card, no problem.  Well, to remedy that 'moment', I drew a pencil smiley on the back of the paper before cutting the puzzle pieces.  Well heck!  The round circle smiley didn't really help in assembling the puzzle.  Finally I counted 1-16 on the back of the paper before cutting the puzzle pieces – wha'la… that worked.   

Anyhow, this card goes together quick and it's strangely fun.  

Royal Peacock Card:

Oh my!  


The minute I saw this Product Suite I knew I MUST have it!  Look at that DSP!  The peacock card in particular it a study in how can I add more and more stuff and get away with more!  I know it's heavy and rich in color/texture/details/bling, but hey, sometimes ya just have to go for it.  I tend to try and overload my cards with everything and really try to hold back.  The peacock card has it all!  I think it's Royal (as the stamp set says).  The other two cards are purposely simple (compared to peacock).  They use all the same products, just easy and simplified.  I really like the other 2 cards.

I hope to see you at class!

Happy Stampin,
