Sunshine Emma Card

This adorable card was made with the new Sunshine Emma stamp set from SP and Company.  I am a member of their 6x6 paper pad/stamp set club.  It is an awesome membership.  details of the club here.

I used both the stamp set and the Sweet Girl paper pad.  They now have the coordinating die for this set.  I also did some sewing on the card for the first time.  I just got a new/used mini Janome sewing machine.  I have wanted one for a very long time to devote just to my card making. 

here is a pic of the monthly kit for February

Cards made with Raisin Boat "Imagine" Stamp Set

I recently discovered a pretty cool stamp company, Raisin Boat, that RENTS stamps sets for a monthly membership fee.  Just like Netflix, you get to pick out sets and place them in your queue and they will send you the sets you have requested per whichever membership plan you choose.  You can keep and use the stamp set for as long as you need to, when you're done just place it in the provided return postage envelope and they will send you the next set on your list.  If you choose to purchase a set that you are already renting, you may keep it and pay the discounted membership price and then you also avoid the shipping charges. 

I just started my membership, and I have to say I already have alot of stamps picked out.  They have over 250 sets available and are always adding new ones. 

I submitted these two cards to them, with the hopes that they will publish them to their idea gallery.  Cross my fingers, they said the would but that it could take awhile to see them on the website.

Easter Cards

I made over 30+ Easter Cards this year.  My husband's families on both sides are quite large.  When I got done addressing and mailing them I think I had 5 left.

this next picture is of the remaining images that I still needed to use.  These cards are in the video.
