I find these days, the one type of gardening I have any success with is … a stamped one! LOL! I would love to hear from those in other states and countries when your garden is under siege from the heat, what plants stand victorious?
I found after stamping the swirls background, the blue hydrangeas fought a bit with the swirls and felt the sentiment wouldn’t pop enough. Adding an overlay of light pink vellum (translucent) sheet over the swirls was the answer!
The Sunflower card below was less involved. I started by stamping the three sunflowers close together on a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of cardstock. Added leaves around the blossoms and then trimmed down the stamped cardstock to fit the layered card base. Sponged the edges and adding the ladybugs last. It is hard to see in the photo, but I added a few drops of Clear Nuvo Crystal Drops on some of the leaves to look like dew drops.

to dust off all his cupid love for this fun St. Patrick’s Day postcard – originally posted in March 2011.
Here is another “Going Green” postcard with some green roses added and a St. Pat’s coaster. I added a transparent scalloped circle with embossing powder on top of the image portion of the coaster. This is to prevent the ink from bleeding when the coaster absorbs moisture when a drink is placed on top.
So, what is your favorite shape coaster to stamp on? Have an inky day!
It is so hard to believe that summer is over when most of the country is having a major heat wave! Well, I hope wherever you are, you are having a wonderful and restful Labor Day … and staying cool!
Today is the last day of our Labor Day Sale – 30% off all in stock stamps!

Today’s project may look a bit “labor” intensive, but it is so worth it!
I was getting so tired with all my scraps of paper and post-it notes with login & password info. Frustrated having to hunt through the pile when I forgot which password or which email address (I have 5 now!) I used to create an account…. not to mention if I had changed the password!
So, I finally got my act together and created a WEB Note Book. It has made my life so much easier! I can now find login/password/email info with a flip of a page. I added clear dividers (from Zutter) so I could separate my web book info into different sections… one for personal, one for business and the 3rd section for all my father’s login info – since I do all his banking & payments online too. (Internet tip: To help prevent getting hacked into, use a different email address for different activities – [ie: one only with financial transactions, one only for purchase, etc.] … and use different passwords and user names for each web & email account).
My WEB Note Book was stamped using Multi Step Iris& Multi Step HummingBirds.
If you are interested in stamping your own WEB Note Book, I have uploaded the templates for 4 different inside pages, which can be found HERE.
