Vertical Garden

Vertical Greetings is a stamp set that is in the 2016 current Annual Catalog and will also be carried over in the new Annual Catalog that comes out June 1st.  It is a great stamp set because all the sentiments are vertical instead of horizontal.  This allows you to stamp a sentiment in a small skinny section of your card.  It is extremely popular with my customers because it is so different.

I inked the flowers and pot using my Stampin’ Write Markers.  They are great for coloring one stamp different colors.  Al you need to do is color each section and then “huff” over the ink to moisten it.  It is really easy to do and works well.

I embossed the sentiment with Versamark and then sprinkled White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on top of it.  Then I heated it up with my Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder.

Emory Jade is 11 weeks old already and is growing like a weed.  Here is a picture of her with her Dad at a concert.  I think she likes the music!

Something For Baby Stamp Off Challenge

Stamp Off Logo Clean

Today’s Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie and Buffy is to make a baby card (well it doesn’t have to be a card as you will soon see!).

The timing of this theme could not be better!  Right now I am in Alabama visiting my brand new granddaughter, Emory Jade.  Let me tell you.  She is just beautiful. She is only a couple of hours old here.

Here is a picture of the E on Emory’s wall.  I think it came out pretty.

Sorry For The Interruption

We interrupt the regularly scheduled program to make an announcement.  I have a new grand daughter!  Her name is Emory Jade and she is just beautiful.  Emory was born on February 27th at 5:27 EST.  She weighed a whopping 8 lbs 7 oz!  My children were all big babies so that was not a surprise!

So let me introduce Emory Jade.

She looks pretty peaceful in this picture but apparently her first night in this world was not a happy one.  I can’t blame her a bit.  She was all warm and cozy and then all of a sudden here she is with bright lights and craziness.

Thanks for letting me show off!
