Some of my projects ...

Please be patient with my as I try to get this blog exactly how I would like it to look.
I am still waiting for the best header and color combination I can make/find.
Things will likely be changed up a bit in this process.

The Official Launch!

I have officially launched my brand new Stampin' Up! blog!

If you are a follower/reader here, please come visit my new blog and add yourself as a follower or subscribe for email updates.
I will still maintain this blog as well. My other blog is primarily to showcase my Stampin' Up creations and to use as a business resource as I grow my Stampin' Up! business.

Please come check it out at http://www.stampindad.blogspot.com.

Thank you so much for your support!

My First Zindorf

I have always been very inspired by the work that Michelle Zindorf does with basic ink and a few other supplies. She is truly gifted and amazing!

I have recently been studying her blog and trying to learn some of her techniques. I thought I would give a try to making an image using some of her techniques.

I will tell anyone I meet that I'm NOT an artist. When it comes to understanding depth, spatial placement, lighting, and all of those other important elements - I'm really quite clueless. So if you look at this and think shadows are wrong or colors are wrong - bear with me ... I'm learning.

Without further ado ...



I used all Stampin Up inks to create the scene. The inks I used were: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Lovely Lilac, Ballet Blue, and So Saffron for the sky. Then I used So Saffron, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, and Basic Brown to do the field and mountains. The stamps are all from Inkadinkado.

I did nothing else to the card but stamp "Thank You" in the middle and a short sentiment on the inside.

This card is for a good friend at work. Her birthdy was today, but I missed getting her a card in time for that. I've been wanting to make her a thank you card for a long time and it just felt more appropriate than making a belated birthday card.

I hope you enjoy it. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
