Perfectly Preserved

Fun sneak peek to the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set (126690-Wood Set/126692-Clear Set) available for public purchase in August.

Since mason jars and projects using them have been on my mind, this set naturally came to mind. I was aiming for rustic simplicity. The flower bunches in the back were created using the simple masking technique.

masking technique (shown on the flower bunches)

-stamp your image on your CS then onto a sticky note
-cut out the image on the sticky note
-place over the stamped image on CS
-stamp another image over the covered image
-repeat as necessary

Then to add even more dimension, I cut the flower image and popped it up with a stampin' dimensional. 

I hope my swap groups like the card that I made.

A Reason to Smile

I have had many reasons to smile, but I must apologize for my lack of posts. I have been traveling and eating my way through New York and Georgia. While during my stay in the Peach State, I was able to host a crafting party for a few girlfriends. Unfortunately, the picture quality isn't that great but hope you enjoy the projects none the less.

The card is a CASE of Shalae Brown but wanted to add a few more details like the stitching to add a little extra umph!


The new downloads for My Digital Studio have certainly brought a smile to my face as well.
