Banners Galore

Today is my last post as a member of The {Stamps} of Life design team.  I've loved working with the team and especially Stephanie Barnard.  She is one talented lady!!!

It was not an easy decision, but with my work schedule lately I've been neglecting my time in the studio (trying to find that family/work/play balance) and something had to give and my play is the first to go.  I've been spending a lot of time away from the family so my time that I am home is important to be able to hang out with them.

Wishing the team the best, I will still be around and no doubt using lots of The {Stamps} of Life when I do get back to some more stamping.

Card details:
Stamps: Minibanners2cut from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Cool Carribean, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Glitz Enchanted Waters patterned paper
Inks: Cool Carribean, Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: twine and Ballons2cut die

I really need to spend some more time working my camera to take some better pics.  This was one of my most favorite cards I've made in awhile and I can't get the banner to photo well :-(

The balloons are die cut with the balloon dies from The {Stamps} of Life along with the new minibanners2cut set.

Card details:
Stamps: Minibanners2cut  and Hexagons2love from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Creamsicle Cardigan, Trendsetter Blue, Crumb Cake and Confetti Cream
Inks: same as cardstock
Embellishments: My Mind's Eye enamel dots

This card I stamped the little flower from the Hexagons2love set in a variety of colors and used the larger hexagon to be my focal point with the banner.

Card details:
Stamps: Minibanners2cut and Flower2doodle from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight
Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and Daffodil Delight
Embellishments: My Mind's Eye enamel dot, Doodle Flower die set

For my last card I wanted something bold and bright and kept it fairly simple.  I love this color combination!

Hope you've enjoyed the array of banners on the cards and thanks for stopping by.

You are a very accomplished card artist, and I love all 3 of these! It is difficult at times to "find your balance" among all the hats we women wear these days. Godspeed!
