Hi There!

Just a fun card using the new Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Die from the SU! Occasions Catalog.  I love it and it coordinates with the Bloomin' Love Stamp set.

After running the die through my Big Shot I used the die cut as a stencil rather than using the die cut as an embellishment on my card.  

With some Calypso Coral daubed through the stencil on Whisper White card stock I created the center of the heart shape made with the retired Heart Thinlets. 

I also used the cut outs from the die to add the additional flowers and topped them off with some basic rhinestones.

Trying to get back into the swing of things and hope to  provide more details on my next cards, when I get all figured out again!!!

Smiley from Millan.Net Thank you to the many wonderful people who continue to "Like" my Stampins4you Facebook page. The number of FB "likes" has reached 95!!! For me, that is a big Smiley from Millan.Net! Especially since I haven't post for nearly 10 months.

I am absolutely amazed how quickly time has passed since my last post in March 2015! 

The last year has included so many emotional situations that have ranged from the ultimate sadness, frustrations, stress to the total love, joy, happiness of family and friends that lift me up everyday.

Moving on... Smiley from Millan.NetSeveral months ago I realized that I had lost my MOJO and creativity since I hadn't really been stamping.  When I went to make a card,  I would just start stamping and nothing jelled and what was on the paper was just tossed.

For the first time in years I didn't get all my Christmas cards made in time Smiley from Millan.Net,

To get motivated, I started searching the internet, looked deep into Split Coast Stampers galleries, blogs and started looking at new tools, companies products and techniques. 

I absolutely love what I have found!!! Distress inks for stamping/watercoloring and more water coloring with Brushos (still a little bit afraid of them), experimenting with Frisket. All the fresh and creative stamp company's designs.

I eagerly awaited for my Demo copy of the SU! Holiday Catalog..... loved Smiley from Millan.Net it! I know I overwhelmed myself with all the goodies. 

Super Great News Smiley from Millan.Net....  the new SU! Occasions and Sale-A-Bration (freebies for purchasing $50 in in products... no limit) brochures are active..... some wonderful items in both of them.  There is something for everyone's stamping genre.

Take a look by clicking on the brochure pics at the top left.  I am sure you will find something you just need to have!

Again, thank you all for your support.

Wishing you all the happiest for the New Year!!!
