Butterfly Wishes

Another week has flown by! More laundry, more rain and more stamping!! The truth is, I never have minded laundry and I love the rain. Stamping is always the highlight of my day. It doesn't have to be physically stamping on cards, but anything to do with stamping will do. I love to watch You Tube videos of other stampers creating cards or scrap book pages. I also love to read stamping magazines. One of my favorite things to do is to go online and visit Posh Impressions where I have a bunch of friends that I talk to almost daily. It's a good time.

I have stamped the card for this week using stamps from the new Posh Asian set. I really do love these stamps. You can find them at the IBFS website. They are a great buy. This card was made using a 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inch card base that opens from the bottom up. Each consecutive layer is 1/4 inch smaller than the last. The last pink layer is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I used Marvy Blending Blox to stamp the images. The butterfly has Star Dust Stickles on it. Each corner has a small rhinestone flower.

Hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it!

New Cards!

Della from I Brake For Stamps is soon releasing two new Asian Posh Impressions stamp sets. These sets are very pretty. I've made these 3 cards for everyone to see. There are tons of stamps in the two sets. I really love them all. There are lots of borders, a frame, flowers and many other neat images. If you want a sneak peak, go to and become a member. Click on the IBFS logo and you can get a peak and even buy the sets before everyone else has a chance! Club Posh is a really neat place. There are lots of techniques and fun people to visit with. Check it out.

I really had fun doing these cards. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the backgrounds on each card. I got these Asian CB folders by using my Cricut rewards points. There were 7 of them and basically I just paid S&H and got them for free! I love to get free stuff. These folders are really neat.

The stamp I used for the Asian writing in 2 of the cards is made by Just For Fun. I used CTMH cardstock and ink on all the cards. I'm ready to go make more! Hope you enjoy them.

It has been so HOT here in Texas! It is just too hot to do much of anything. I got a new stamp from I Brake For Stamps and it made me start thinking of cooler weather and Christmas time. So, I made a card that is absolutely COLD! I used a Martha Stewart punch on the corners and Stickles glitter for the snow. These penguins are so cute!

Go to the IBFS site and look around. The stamps are the cutest! They will have POSH stamps soon. If you order from them, use this code and get a 10% discount! SAVE10LAELA

I am doing quite well now. Still have to watch my food intake. Meat does not agree very well, so I've turned into a semi-vegetarian! Strange for me since my favorite food has always been steak! I've lost 133 pounds so far. Wish it would come off faster. Need to do more exercise!

Till next time, stay cool!

Stamping Again!

I am so excited to be stamping again! After my surgery, I just did not feel like stamping or doing much of anything. I am now feeling so much better. I got in my stamping room and gave it a quick clean so I could begin creating again.

I decided to do my first card for my Posh Design Team card. I am so happy to be on this wonderful team with some great ladies. I am looking forward to designing some cute cards with Posh Impressions stamps as well as some I Brake For Stamps products. They are now sponsoring and manufacturing for Posh.

The background on this card is done on Close to My Heart card stock. I used the Martha Stewart Scoring Board to score the diagonal lines and then I sanded the cardstock so that the white core shows through. All the stamps are Posh. I used Stampin' Up dimensionals to raise the panda up just a bit.

Feels great to be stamping!
