Just Hatched!

So, I made my card yesterday and thought 'what a waste to throw that circle of paper out...what can I do with it?!'. So, I cut the scalloped circle out of Soft Sky cardstock and adhered that baby right to the front. Still using the Birds of a Feather stamp set, I stamped the main image in Soft Sky and Marigold Morning (loving that combo, BTW!). A little ribbon and it was done!

Spread your wings

I made this card for a coworker who is leaving. I am going to totally miss her and thought that the 'spread your wings' sentiment was perfect for her new path in life.

I love my Memory Box paper and bought it specially to go with this stamp set. The colors are just fabulous!

Thank you berry much!

I think I am the last Papertrey fan to get Green Thumb! Oh, well! I got it this month with my order and am having a blast with it! I also just got my circle Nesties and have been using them on everything. I got the Petite Scallops and am really happy with them. They are super sweet and delicate.

I made this card for our neighbors who gave us a Smores kit to enjoy on the 4th. I hope they enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the ooey-gooey treats!

I think if I made this card again, I would stitch the Ruby Red panel, but other than that, I am quite satisfied with how it came out.

Stamps: Green Thumb, SU! Polka Dot BG

Life is a Journey

The moment I saw Birds of a Feather from Papertrey I knew I had to have it. I just love every image and sentiment. This is the first card I made using the set.

Pretty straight forward...stamped images and inked edges. Cardstock is SU! Kraft and PTI Plum Pudding. I thought the two papers complimented each other quite nicely.

Finally playing with my new rubbah!

I bought this Lockhart Rosebud cupcake stamp from Ellen during her Friday the 13th sale LAST MONTH! I am just now getting around to posting what I created! Oy! Anyway...I think this is just so sweet. I started with the paper from Bo Bunny and chose my colors from there. The images are colored with Copics and I stitched the paper. I love the sugary-sweet colors and the touch of whimsey. The ribbon is the scrumptious swiss dot from Papertrey. LOOOVE it!

Some Stickles and a sentiment finish 'er off!

I have bunches of new projects to share, but you have to come back tomorrow! LOL!
