CAS Father's Day

Forgive me for not posting for awhile, we are just up to our necks in end of school activities, field trips etc for the boys, but it has been fun an exciting.  Today is Jonathan's 5th grade promotion and picnic, where did the time go? Lots to catch you up on!
 I have not completed my video yet for these cards I made with Stately Flowers 6, but I wanted to go ahead and show them now so you can get buys creating, with Father's Day a few weeks away.  These can both be made under 10 minutes!  After photographing, I wished I'd done a Dusty Sage or Warm Cocoa base, but I was really trying to keep supplies for you to a minimum. Pine cone is stamped in Dark Sage and colored with just two Copics, E43 and E37, on both cards.
This second card uses the Inspiration Mosaic, stamping the Stately Flowers 6 pine cone over the frame, and then using a spotlighting technique that is covered in my new book Fabulous Stamped Frames (this project is not actually in the book, just the technique, demonstrated with other sets from my frame series.)  Isn't that a great look?

Hope this inspires!

I *will* be back with a video for these, promise, have all the supplies at the ready, just didn't have the camera charged the other day and then had to dash out the door...!

Hugs, have a terrific weekend!!

New A Year of Flowers 2 Video

Thanks everyone for the wonderful feedback for my Pretty Patterns 2 video, I'm so glad you are all finding them so helpful! (It sold out yesterday, but Gina will be ordering more! You can also create similar effects with the stamps in Pretty Patterns)

Today's short video shows how I took a project from my first book A Year of Flowers, and updated the card with just a few changes using my new A Year of Flowers 2 set,
for an entirely different look. This also includes a brief introduction to my first book A Year of Flowers.   I also share the watercolor Copic coloring look I did in my first two A Year of Flowers 2 videos (which can find on myYoutube channel), this time with a different flower from the set.  This card start to finish can be made in under 10 minutes.  Please enjoy!

A Year of Flowers 2 stamps (there are a few left in stock now, but Gina will be reordering)

I posted this on StampTV this morning as well, just making it easier for people to find it. :)

Happy Sunday!
