Just a few Nuggets...

So I have been stamping a little. Thought I would share a few inspirational things! Most of my stamping lately has been pretty random, however I am trying to make samples using the retired stamp sets. I am always sad to see some of these stamps go away! I'm trying to use up some of my pretty paper I have been hoarding too. Oh me!
The Baby card uses the Year after Year stamp set. This is a great stamp set for any new stamper. Great to use a blender pen with and color to your hearts content using any type of medium such as a stamp pad or even chalk. This set is retiring. So sad! My FAVORITE background stamp set Print Pattern is retiring as well as the In Colors I used. Shameful! The sentiment New Baby is from Fundamental Phrases. Do you have that? If not, great stamp set.
Now, the little pen holder uses the Notebook Designer paper. I love that paper. Not sure yet if this one will retire, we'll see very soon. I wondered into my 3-d alter stash and found one of these large Bandaid boxes and decided it would be perfect to hold my favorite Stampin' Write markers. I love using those to journal with. I wanted them in a tidy place. I used Stamp of Authenticity, another retiring set. I have loved this set. Gosh, is there anything I don't love???
Lastly, I bought some of Starbucks new Chocolate bars and decided to cover one using the Berry Bliss designer paper. I used the One of a Kind stamp set on this little nugget.
Well, that's all for today!!!
I have to add a big thank you for all the fun comments on my first video tutorial. I know it's a little dark, and I will work on that for the next one. :) Thank you for all your support. I'm working on a new one. whoo hoo!
Oh, and to answer someones question, I used Photoshop Elements 5.0 to make my watermark. NOT an easy program to use. Believe me, it took 3 hours to figure it out. Remember, I am blonde. LOL!
