It's Springtime over at All Dressed Up Stamps!

  People that know me well, know that I can't wait to get out in my Iris and Daylily plants that I raise at my home in Dirty Gloves Gardens.  It's getting warmer outside and some days are sunny-I am using the New Release image "Garden Wheel Barrow" from All Dressed Up Stamps on my card.  I actually have a wheel barrow that is loving used to cart dirt, plants, hoes, weed eaters, etc. around my gardens and it is Turquoise also!  I decided to make this one a little "rustic" by using my copics- color matched what I was imagining perfectly!  Then I used a newly acquired Arched die that has scallops and stitches and cut a "window" showing my world.  This paper was a great fix as it was printed with blue-green-yellow sections rising vertically-Just what I needed to indicate sky-grass-flower areas.  After I did a lot of Fancy Cutting to the images, I used some Zig glue to reach the tiny spots and angled it into the arch.  I LOVE how it just "moves" out of the background-the shadows also help with that .

There are so many cute images in the ADU shop for Spring time if you're getting the "Bug".  We also have a new Monthly Challenge using an ADU image coming up on March 15th--it's a great way to win some Images from our In House Artist Wendy Burns..  We can't wait for you to inspire us.  Thanks for Stopping by!

Valentine's Day Celebration images at All Dressed Up Stamps!

It's almost time for Valentine's Day celebrations and the Design Team at All Dressed Up Stamps wants to share with you some of our 💗 creations!
For my card, I'm using image "Love to Knit" (see the heart she's working on) and it couldn't be more appropriate for me. This will be going to my dear daughter for Valentine's Day -she learned to knit in 2019 when she made me knitted caps to wear during my cancer treatments and around the house. My head was so cold without my hair and even when I got peach fuzz! She's making some more now for her cousin who's has had a re-occurrence and for some of the treatment centers around the area. Sorry to ramble on-I'm pretty proud of her ❤  I did additional stamping on the image using a couple of stamps from my stash and fancy cut a cluster of flowers from the leftover background paper. Placed it on dimensional dots and added a ribbon.
I'm hoping you will all join in our Challenge that starts the 15th of the month for a chance to win some images!  We'd love to be inspired by your creations!
