Love Life Card

I have anotheLove Life Cardr quick share before I call it a night!   I don’t know what it was about this Stamp set but I really like it!

Maybe it’s because of the Lemon. Being that my maiden name was “Limon”.  I don’t know BUT I just knew I had to have it!

Here is the first card I made using this set that you can get FREE only during Stampin’ Up!s Sale-A-Bration with a $50.00 order. Ending March 31st 2015!

I also used the Blendabilities for the background on this card!  If you have any questions please feel free to comment or email me yvonne@yvonnesstampingplace.com.  Thanks for stopping by and as always….

Your Awesomeness card

Flower PatchHi Stampers! 

Well here is my last swap from Convention! I love how this turned out and this is yet again another new stamp set that I just LOVE! It's called "Flower Patch" #134207 it's a photo polymer set which I'm getting used to using. I love how they are completely see through!

Of course I had to top off this card with Dazzling Diamond glitter and just a little more bling with a couple of Rhinestones in the middle of the flowers just to give it that extra touch!

Enjoy your Saturday stamp something! Thanks for stopping by!

Summer is over and school is back…

Hi Stampers! Well it's back to school for my son! He's not to excited but he's surviving his first week back!  It's already Friday so this week just flew by!

Well I had a super busy summer after Convention. Lot's going on, baseball, camps for my son and a super nice vacation to see my daughter back in Tennessee!  That was fun. Plus I had another project I was working on which you can see HERE!

Now it's time to buckle down and get back to blogging, stamping and sharing it all with you! So many new products to share I just love this new Catalog! 

First up I'm going to share my swap cards and then in the next few days I'll show you some of the awesome swaps I got at Convention and some great highlights!  To see the latest promotions from Stampin' Up! Click HERE!

Welcome Baby

 

This was one of my card swaps for Convention! I just love how this turned out. This color combo just worked together don't you think?

This is a new set called "Something for Baby" #134030 clear mount set. It also has a Framelit set to match!

I just love how Stampin' Up! bundles up the product so you save money!

 

Just for you

 

Next is the "Just for you" card which was another swap and yes another new stamp set!

  The set used here is called "Work of Art" #134111 wood set. You will see me using this set TONS! The possiblities are endless!

I have one more swap card that I'll share with you tomorrow!
