Green at Heart Triple Take

March 9th, 2010

iowa-girls-with-te-mural-custom.jpgOh my heavens!  I had so much FUN on my trip to Iowa!  Unfortunately I was having so much fun just living in the moment that I hardly took any photos!  Here we are in the entry to the Taylored Expressions Store.  Isn’t that mural so cool?  I’m with Sankari, Sharon, Taylor and Lori.  Talk about kids in a candy store – wow!  I got to stay with Taylor and Jon and they were such wonderful hosts – I felt truly spoiled.

And guess what people???  I am FINALLY Copic Certified!!  See the litte badge in my sidebar?  I have proof!  LOL!  Lori and Sharon team taught the class and it was great!  I’m looking forward to teaching more classes involving coloring with Copic markers.

On Friday afternoon, before Sankari or Sharon arrived, Lori and Taylor and I had a couple of hours to just hang out in Taylor’s stamp room.  We ended up all using the same paper line for our cards – Basic Grey Green at Heart – with three very different stamp sets.  I thought the results were so fun that I wanted for us to all post our creations today – a little Triple Take – so you can see how you can go in such different directions with one 6×6 pad of paper.  Green at Heart was my CHA favorite and I was so excited when I saw that Taylor had received it and had it available in the store along with some of the coordinating embellishments!


I made my card with the new set Favorite Peeps.  This is my very favorite image from the new release and I couldn’t wait to ink it up!  The image was cut and framed with Nesties Labels 11.  I used a Martha Steward fence border punch, some Tiny Twinkles and KaiserCraft pearls and check out that Basic Grey Bloomer that coordinates with the Green at Heart paper!  It is layered felt and a button and it’s self-adhesive!!

Here are all three cards:


Taylor used the bunny from Sweet Spring and Lori used the new Easter Blessings.  I apologize that the photo is not the best.  Taylor takes such amazing photos in her set up, but her camera battery was dead and we wanted this photo at the last minute so I used my camera and I obviously had no idea how to use her light box set up.  Be sure to hop over their blogs to see their individual photos.

Can you believe that I forgot to take any pictures of the snow?  D’oh!!!!  It was the first time I had ever seen in person lawns covered in snow.   i was just so happy to be with these sweet friends!  There’s nothing like *chick time*, kwim?  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to get back to more regular creating and blogging soon.  I have a stamp class at my house this Friday evening and I currently have one spot open…wanna come?

    […] 3 new stamp sets last Friday, and I really, really loved this Easter set called Easter Blessings. Jami created the card on the left with  Favorite Peeps, and Taylor pulled out a favorite Sweet Spring. […]
