"Perfectly Herb Simple"

I love how simple this card is:


Card: Perfect Plum


Accent Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant 2 3/4 x 4 1/4" for behind the herbs. Whisper White 2 1/2 x 4". Scraps for Elegant Eggplant circle. Perfect Plum is the card.

Stamp set: Herb Expressions


Ink: Perfect Plum, Old Olive marker, Perfect Plum marker, Old olive to daub around oval.


Accessories: 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, lg. oval punch, yarn or ribbon of your choice, Sq. Lattice embossing folder, pop , dauber. One nice thing about sq. lattice embossing folder is that you actually get 2 looks depending on which side you like.

Instructions: Stamp the herbs on the white piece 2 1/2 x 4". Punch out a circle with 1 1/4" anywhere you chose on the herbs. Save this piece and mount it onto the Elegant Eggplant circle that was punched with 1 3/8" circle punch. Might even want to pop dot this piece. The herbs piece with the hole punched out, gets mounted onto Elegant Eggplant 2 3/4 x 4 1/4" piece and onto your embossed card . Mount this stacked circle with pop dots over the hole that you had punched out.


"Move over Picasso" and free yourself. Wow, it's amazing how much fun this was. I was able to make about 30 cards in about 15 minutes.
Card: Whisper White

Ink: Your choice but here I used, Delightful Daffodil, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point blue

Stamp Set: Old Hostess Set: Live Like you Mean it.


Instructions: Take your lightest ink pad and swipe it in the center of the card. Now from the edge to the center, take another color and drag onto the center color. Turn your card around and do the same from the other direction with your next favorite color. Lift up as you get to the center. Take some practice but I just love this card.




Rose in the Window is way easy and looks so good. I think you need a big stamp to see it well.


Set: Wild Rose, a square stamp


Card: Old Oive


Accent Cardstock: Whisper White for flower is 3 x 3", Brown for the flower is strips of Choc Chip, 1 1/8" x 3 3/8". Pumpkin Pie is 3 5/8" x 3 1/2"


Ink: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Choc Chip


Instructions: Background is so cool and so much fun to make. Release your tensions making this background. Using a square stamp and ink or using spots ink pads to make the background.


Stamp the rose onto cardstock and cut up into 1 inch square and remount. Trick. You must mark the back of your rose before cutting it apart of you'll be faced with a puzzle trying to reassemble. Be careful adhering the brown to the p.pie as it is not square. .

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog.

It's still a learning experience. If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month. For class dates go to my Stampin Up events calendar: http://www.joanlowder.stampinup.net/

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
