Let's Do Coffee!

I made this card for a Quick & Easy challenge. The finished size is 4" x 4" so it is a little smaller than the standard card. Paterned paper, punches, the Cuttlebug embossing and bold stamps make this one really quick. No coloring to do!

Stamps: Mini Occasions, Running Stitches and Circle Sampler

Paper: Pop Rockz

Cardstock: Brights Stack and Neutral Stack

Emma's Birthday Party Invites

I took Emma to the store the other day to get the stuff for her birthday party invites. Since we couldn't find any Barbie stamps or stickers, she ended up picking a package of Little Mermaid stickers. Since all of the stickers are different images and sizes, I decided that I would just make all of the invitations different. They all share the same colors I just changed the layouts and embellishments on them to suit the size of the image since some are considerably larger than the others. Here are four of the designs . . .

Emma loves them! Especially the ones with the little jewels on them. Because I used stickers there is hardly any stamping on them. The only thing stamped is the bubbles on the last two. I don't use stickers a lot, but they sure come in handy when you can't find the stamps!

It's Officially Fall!

Today is the first day of Fall and it actually feels like it this morning! It's cool and rainy now but they are saying it is supposed to be in the 80's the rest of the week. Not good news for me...i'm ready for the cooler weather. But, even if the weather doesn't quite feel like it I can do some Fall stamping projects.

In doing so, I think I may have a new favorite Halloween stamp set! This haunted house stamp is part of a new set that was just released with the TAC Fall Supplement. All of the images in the set are bold like this house so there is no coloring and they look really good stamped over paterned paper. For this card I used the Cha Cha papers and cardstock which work really well for Halloween.

Stamps: Halloween Town, Happy Haunting, and Running Stitches

Paper/Cardstock: Cha Cha Soar With It Collection, and Cha Cha Cardstock

Embellishments: Cha Cha Hardware

Ink: Palette Noir

First Halloween Card of the Season

It is definitely that time of year! We had some great Fall like weather for a bit, but for the last week we have been hit with 80 degree weather. I'm ready for fall though so i've started on some Halloween stuff! I just got one of the new Halloween stamp sets that TAC just released that I plan on playing with today. If you haven't seen it yet, check out the Fall Supplement here to see all of the new releases for Fall!

For this card I used the Distressed Halloween set from Inque Boutique to stamp the background. I used the Orangerie and French Lilac and Noir Palette ink pads. The cat is from the Happy Haunting stamp set which is still one of my favorites!

Finally, some stamping!

Here is a card that I just made for a stamping friend's birthday. After I got everything stamped and was considering extra embellishments I decided to just leave it the way it was. Sometimes when I look at cards in magazines, etc., things tend to get over embellished. It was hard to resist adding more, but I am happy with how simple it is.

For this card I used some DCWV cardstock and paterned paper. Stamps are from Deco Designs and Circle Sampler. The edges are inked with Burnt Umber Palette ink and the circle is stamped with Aegean Blue Brilliance. The punches are the Mega Scalloped Circle and the Super Jumbo Scalloped Circle.
