I am the same way with furnishings (ask my DH, as he has to help me move the furniture until the room is balanced) and I didn't realize it but I need to do the same with cards as well, not that balance is bad, but it seems it has to be to be a part of my creativity.
For example, check out this card, there is a great sense of balance that I needed to do before I completed it.
You can see the dets (coming soon) on my Steampunk page!
Unfortunately, no one will see this card in their mailbox, as I spilled water all over it and other card right after I took the pics, boo-hoo, I really liked it... Although I did salvage the wings, so we shall see what becomes of them.
Happy Stampin' Yappers!

It helps me validate that I have a good reason for "needing all my stamping paraphernalia!
A girls gotta be prepared for any situation, in my case anything stamping, LOL! I must always be ready for any opportunity to stamp, hence a room just like a store!
DH had asked me for a card for a co-worker of his that had received a promotion... I got right on it, but gasp I had to come up with a masculine card, those are the hardest to come up with for me anyway.
So let me share with you what I came up with:
I had ordered this set as soon as I heard it was retiring and I had not gotten it before because I had enough leaf sets but this one was special.
SET: French Foliage and the new sentiments stamp set Express Yourself
PAPER: Very Vanilla, New Brown Sugar, Choc. Chip
INKS: Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Sahara Sand.
ACCESORIES: Linen Thread, Word Window and Modern Label punches
Hoping you stampers are keeping your stamping stash full for any requests that may come your way! If, not let me know I can help ;)
Thanks for Yappin' bout Stampin' with me!

With that being said, I decided I had better get some of the retiring sets out and use them. What did I find?
The 2 sets I pulled out had not even seen any ink.... that is shameful, because it must mean I have too much stuff... and in reality it is very true....
I call this my trio of Primary (colors) Little Friends, it was fun to get back to stamping and I have few more cards in my stash for all new children who are in my life and those to come , l like my soon to be first grand-baby ~~ Lily. I hope the darlin' come soon.
So below are a few cards I have made with the LITTLE FRIENDS set:

Hope you all had a great Mother's Day! I sure did. I got beautiful flowers, a new chicken for my kitchen, and phone calls from loved ones.
I also had a wonderful time outside since the temps were finally cool enough in my backyard to get my small garden in, play with flowers and lots of dirt :)
To be honest, I am usually flying by the seat of my pants
when I attempt to plant a vegetable garden.
So, it seemed appropriate that I would fall in love with this sweet little gnome who is apparently flying by the seat of his pants for all gnome eternity or until I rescue him from my flower cart for hibernation during the winter.
Isn't he gnome-tastic??? I think so :)
Thanks for letting me do some Yappin' that is not about Stampin'

Here is the first installment, a wine card that was accompanied by, yes, a bottle of wine..... which we are saving for next time :)
I so enjoyed this card, with retired the Stampin' Up! retired Pale Plum, Rich Razzleberry and many wonderful punches, and a fun stamp.... I loved it so much I made two!
Yappin' bout Stampin' with you.
I hope this inspires you as well :)
The colors were perfect for trying out the new color STONE SLAT, which is replacing River Rock and breaking out the Crushed Curry and the little used Tangarine Tango.

Paper: Basic Grey, Stone Slate, Crushed Curry and Whispher White
