I Heart U...

I made this card for this weeks "Ways To Use It" challenge WT129 over at SCS. The card we pretty easy to make until I got this idea to make a shrinky dink... It took me several tries to get it right and I still ended up using the first one I made. The cooks hat and platter kept sticking, so after making 5 of these, I gave up and just used the first one I made.

Stamps: Tiers of Treats (Stampendous) Viola, Sweets on You
Paper: Close to Cocoa, WW, LSP
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Red
Accessories: Ticket punch, Color pencils, Square punch, gingham ribbon, Shrinky Dinks, Colored pencils

Lots of Birthdays coming up in the next few months for family & friends. I got the paper a long time ago and I am just finally using it. My daughter says "Mom, you don't need that, you only use about 5% of your stuff". Now I can tell her I use 6% of my supplies.

In The Spotlight...

While I listen to Big Brother8 on Showtime2, I made another quick card after seeing a really cute card on SCS. Here is the card that gave me the inspiration.

Stamps: On The Spotlight, Weathered
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron

I think the weathered block stamp goes very well with flowered sets.

Garden Whimsy...

Featured Stamper Challenge

Here is another Sunday upload. This time I used a layout from this week's "Featured Stamper" over at Splitcoaststampers. Her gallery is filled with fun & creative cards. After checking out her gallery, make way to her Blog "Sweetie's Stamping" for more inspiration.

My Sunday Morning Card...

This is my Sunday morning card I did really quick. I got this really yummy ribbon from "Really Reasonable Ribbon" the other day and saw the three colors together so I thought of this design and made a quick card. I used my Cuttlebug for the background on Rose Red, Regal Rose and Mellow Moss paper. I used my markers for the flowers. The sentiment is on the flowers as well as the last piece of mellow moss.
Check better later, I will have more cards for you.

Stamp Camp Card...

This is a favorite of mine and I had to share it with all of you. I stamped Pick A Petal and pierced around each petal. I inked up half of the smile petal and used my In The Spotlight for the leaf. The flowers were stamped in So Saffron and cut out. The center of the big flower was stamped and I used the circle scallop punch for the center. The Wild Wasabi double stitched ribbon is through all 3 layers. To give the card a little sparkle, I glued the areas I wanted to sparkle with my 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds.

Have a great weekend,
Jennifer :)
