It is so unbelievable to me that ANOTHER year has gone by!  I know they say that time flies….but I would like it to slow down a bit!  There is so much to say and so much to do but rather than be long winded, I’m hoping that you will feel the appreciation and LOVE that have for each and every one of you that follows my blog, patronizes my business, and joins me in my classes to allow me to share what I love with you!  I am so thankful for all that you bring into my life and more than anything for your friendship.  May 2018 be filled with much love, laughter, and happliy ever after!

Today I thought it fitting to share a project with you that I created using the Sale-a-bration stamp set called, “Heartfelt Blooms”.  This set contains an image that is a new creation for Stampin’ Up!  The process for creating these images is in the process of being patented!  When stamped, the image looks just like a photograph!  I am sharing my completed project as well as some additional pieces that I stamped in different colors so that you can see the affects of this stamp!

Using the Sale-a-bration stamp set and my Stampin’ Blends, I stamped the image using our Tuxedo Black Momento ink and then colored the image using the Pink Pirouette – light, Pool Party – light, Old Olive – Light, and Daffodil – Dark Blends.  I layered the image with Pink Pirouette cardstock and used dimensionals to add it to the Old Olive layer that is embossed with the 3-D folder called, Layered Leaves. 

PLEASE NOTE:  This stamp set can NOT be purchased!  It is a set that you can get for FREE when you place an order of $50 or more on my website!  Want this set?  Scroll all the way through this post and you will find the supply list!  Purchase the items and get the set for FREE!!
