The Sky Is the Limit

The Sky is the Limit during Sale-a-brations and this set was my first choice when I earned a Sale-a-bration choice with my purchase. I just love the masculine image and font used for the sentiments! And since it is only available until February 15th I didn’t want to miss out!

Sky is the limit

So of course it was my first choice when I needed a Graduation card for my husband’s nephew who recently graduated with his nursing degree. We’re extremely proud of him and so I wanted to make something extra special.

I stamped the World Map in Crumb Cake on top of the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series paper, to give it more of a subtle feel and sponged the outer edges of the airplane piece too to make it feel more antiqued.

I really like the way it turned out and hope he likes it too. What do you think?

Would you like to see what I’ll be sharing at my Shoe box Swap? This card highlights the Folded Frame technique and while it looks difficult it really isn’t – which is always the type of technique I love!

From Land to Sea Folded Frame OnStage Sherrie Shoebox Swap 2015

This card was created using our From Land to Sea stamp set (138720/139361) found on page 83 in the Annual Catalog. I love anything water and turtles so that is where I started when creating this card. (Remember those pet turtles that we had and the little plastic dish with the palm tree to keep them in? Oops I’m probably dating myself, oh well my love affair with turtles started with my first pet turtle.)

Want to know how I made this Folded Frame? Well you’re in luck – I’ve done a quick video tutorial on Folded Frames for you so you can make them too!

Black & White Convention Swaps

Over the next few days I’ll be sharing some of the Black and White cards that I received from my Convention swaps. Black and White cards are always classic and a great way to start stamping since it doesn’t require a lot of supplies.

Traveler Convention swap 2014

This card was made using the Traveler stamp set, one of my favorites! I love the way that Cheryl used the Just Sayin’ stamp set to add the sentiment – how about you? It adds a taste of contemporary to these classic sets.

Want to see my Black & White card? I used the Traveler stamp set too – click HERE to see my swap.

Traveler On Film

Do you love black & white cards? I love the classic elegance of these colors together. Black and white cards are a great for new stampers too since it only requires a few items to create a wonderful project.


I love the Traveler stamp set from the 2014 Annual Catalog. It has such great images that have a vintage feel and so that makes them perfectly to this classic color combo.


I love the water so for this card I chose to use the ship. I started out thinking I would use our StazOn Jet Black Pad for this card, but since my NEW Memento Tuxedo Black Pad was laying on my table I grabbed it instead. I was pleasantly surprise when I stamped my image with it since it has a softer feel and made it perfect for this project. ( I just hadn’t noticed it when I’d been stamping line images for coloring with the Blendabilities.)

So what do you think? This is the second of my swap cards for Convention – I’m hoping they will love this card as much as I do!


Stamp Set: Traveler (134510/134513), World Map Background (130342/130345), and Something to Say (134177/134180)

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Pad (132708)
