Birthday Bonanza!

Happy Monday everyone!

This week the theme over on the Stampendous blog is a fun birthday bonanza with all of their fabulous stamps and stencils!

Today I have an adorable House-Mouse card to share for a festive birthday card or really any celebration. It would look just as fun as a New Year's image with silver and gold glitter, crushed glass fragments.

Anyway, I took a dive into pinks, I'm not a big pink person unless it's for valentine's day or baby cards, but this one just seemed like a right color combination! You can get more details about this card below, but before you go there you should make a note of all the other hops you can take today with Stampendous and the design team.

Poised Peacock Tag

Hello, Friends and hope you're enjoying the sunny days ahead. If the local temperatures are rising above high 90' F and above I hope you have a way to stay cool. As soon as I step outside I wish I had a BIG fantastic fan handy, you know the size of a peacock's train!

Taken at the Milwaukee Zoo in 2016.
I've never seen a peacock actually fan themselves with their feathers, but if I were one I'd certainly try!

Anyway, this all leads up to the beautiful Poised Peacock stamp set from Stampendous that I was fortunate to get from them in my design team goodie box for the April 2017 Stampendous Catalog (click to browse any of their catalogs online). 

Here's my tag project using the stamp set and a few more goodies from Stampendous! All the details are at the end of my post if you see something that interests you.

Keeping Cool

The weather is heating up this week in my area and we are finding ways to cool down! Maybe a dip in the local swimming pool or just a few more ice cubes in our water will do in a pinch, but one thing I use to love to do when I was young was a car ride in the evenings!

And today I'm posting about my love for the foothills in Boise, plus those rides of my youth with a card creation I made for a Stampendous catalog! (As you know my blog is frequently sponsored by products I receive from companies that I love and Stampendous is one of them!)

My card uses a stamp, paper, ink and markers, oh some glue too of course! A simply fun time for someone who loves to color! This stamp reminded me so much of driving around with the windows rolled down as a younger self, plus those days I use to bicycle all Saturday morning with two fabulous friends! I miss those days. You can find supplies and instructions at the end of my blog post if you would like to color up this fantastic stamp!

Anyway, do you know who else is keeping cool this week? Some of my design team buddies and Stampendous!

Janelle Stollfus - you are here!
