Team Members Creations - a Highlight

What a great  team I have!  One person was unable to make it because the road into town was washed out because of all the heavy rain we have been experiencing.  However, she was in town first thing in the morning to drop off  her swap card and get all the update information.

Okay - I'm going to show off a little bit.  Here are the swap cards:





One of my team members has only been stamping for a year.  Can you guess which card is hers?

Aren't they just wonderful???

I am affectionately known as the "boss"

You Are my Sunshine - Try Stampin' on Tuesday or Not #328

The sketch challenge this week with Try Stampin' on Tuesday or Not #328 has an optional theme of  "Summertime Heat", a very suitable theme considering some of the hot days we have been experiencing.
The sketch this week is by Donna.


When it's really hot outside I visualize floating on a lake on some sort of floating device. My happiest moments were spent floating on an inner tube.  This card is a take of that vision. 

The card base is  Very Vanilla, layered with Serene Scenery DSP - a piece that looks like a body of water.

The art piece is a tag notched at one end with the Triple Punch. On it I build the "floating" scene, using the High Tide stamp set and die cuts from the Layering Seasonal Framelits.  A strip of Old Olive cardstock was snipped to mimic grass. A rather big 3D lady bug climbs up on the floating tag to join in the relaxation action.

The sentiment is from "Sunshine Sayings"

The art piece is adhered to the card front using dimensionals.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  High Tide, Sunshine Sayings
Inks:  Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Old Olive, Black Memento
Papers:  Very Vanilla, Serene Scenery DSP, Whisper White, Old Olive, Tranquil Tide
Accessories:  Triple Punch, Swirly Scribbles Thinlets, Seasonal Layers Thinlets, Dimensionals, 3D lady but (non SU)

Now it's your turn to make something using Donna's sketch, and you have 2 weeks to do so.  When finished, upload your creation to the Try Stampin' on Tuesday blog or the Facebook page.
