Hello and welcome to this weeks....slightly tardy post of the Broke Stampers United post. This week we are featuring a stamp set. Flower Shop! One of my favorite sets. I went for a clean crisp look. I used a base of Whisper White and added a splash of Melon Mambo. (another fav) I just did a few random taps of the stamp around the edges and then stamped and punch out (with the coordinating punch) popped them off the page with a bit of dimensionals. I added some candy dots to the centers in Basic Black and Whisper White.  I stamped my sentiment, borrowed from Picture Perfect set, in Basic Black ink.  Love the clean look. 

Be sure to check out what Terri and Stace did with this set. ALSO I must apologize for my tardiness. I was really busy with some other things and forgot it was Wednesday. I would also like to recognize Stace for always being prompt and ready to go and Terri for holding my hands to the fire. . You are really helping me to sit down and stamp when it would be so easy to just let this whole thing float away. Thank You! I really need to get a new catalog order in.....the new one breaks in just a week. Time for some new stampin' toys. 

Have a great week everbody and thank you for stopping by. Would love it if you would leave a quick Hi or encouragement. I really need it. to get me more motivated in the Stampin' World. Besides I'd love to know if you're out there peekin. 

See ya'll next week. 


Welcome  to this weeks BSU Challenge post. This week we are doing a color challenge. Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Very Vanilla. I love the Americana look of this combination. So I had to reach back in the depths of my closet of storage and dig out my old stamp sets. Courage and Honor is the name of the set and I believe it first debuted in 2002. 

I started with a base of Smoky Slate card stock and layered some Night of Navy, followed by some Cherry Cobbler. I then used a layer of Very Vanilla to stamp my image on in Smoky Slate ink. I pulled out a dauber and sponged on some Night of Navy on the edges. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry cobbler and layered that with Night of Navy then added some candy dots to the corners. Fairly basic layout but I love the look. 

Hope you've enjoyed this weeks trip back in time. Be sure to hop on over to Terri's Blog HERE and Stace's Blog HERE and see what they came up with for this week. 
I'd like to Thank You for stopping by, and be sure to stop in next week for the stamp set challenge. 
                                         Have a great week Everybody


It's time for another Broke Stampers Unite Challenge. This weeks theme is Technique and the chosen technique is heat embossing resist. I chose the Sprinkles Of Life stamp set. I used a versamark ink pad to stamped my image in and clear embossing powder. I then stamped the cone in Sahara Sand and rubbed a lil ink to fill it in using a dauber. Then I used a sponge dauber to apply the inks in Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, and Chocolate Chip. By doing that it resists the ink where I stamped and embossed leaving the white image. I added a cherry on top in Real Red. Layered the whole thing on Soft Sky with a Real Red card base.  I stamped my sentiment in Real Red and layered a bit of  Pink Pirouette behind it and used some Dimensionals to pop it off the page.  I finished with some candy dots in the before mentioned colors.


Ok better late than never right?? I must again apologize for my tardiness. Things just got away from me. This weeks Broke Stampers Unite challenge is Theme...Father's Day/Masculine. I have flowers and butterflies......I don't, for some reason, do much in the Masculine sector. So I had to get a lil creative. Maybe a good card for a non family Father's Day wish? 

 I used Vintage Leaves, Crazy About You and Timeless Textures stamp sets. Stamping a boarder and adding a bit of Early Espresso cotton ribbon on Whisper White card stock layered with Wild Wasabi and Mossy Meadow. I stamped my sentiment in Mossy Meadow. 

I think I need to procure a more versatile and manly set to have around something to think about I guess as I get ready to plan my new catalog order.
