These new stamps go on Sale tomorrow (Feb. 1,2011) at Creative Accents.  Tara and Julie  let us into play with them on Saturday, it was a lot of fun.  I managed to get three cards done that I am quite happy with and thought I would share with you all.  This first card is stamped in Memento Ink then colored with Copic's / TH Distressed inked / Bazil card stock and the back ground paper is from Memory Box as well.  It has a very soft flowery back ground. Ribbon of coarse from the store. 

Next up two cards same style but different stamps.  Embossed with Brown Sugar / TH Distressed inks used.

Hope you enjoy.  Thanks for looking. Take Care.

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Threes CompanyChallenge #95:

Oh I just had to enter this week.  I have been following these challenges  for awhile now and today's just seemed to jump out at me and say this is it.

I had this image  from Lily of the Valley colored for awhile now and before even looking to see who the sponsors were this time round had my card put together.

My paper is Basic Grey 6x6 Marjolaine Pad / I colored with my Copic's / used Spellbinders Dies / Prima flowers Glimmer misted with Lemon Zest/ Ribbon from my Stash / Hero Arts Saying .  The sketch I got from Graphicat Creations (love Cheri's work and have the privilege off personally knowing her)
Here is a close up of the flowers and ribbon.  ( I hope the shine comes through)  

Well I hope you all like my card I had a lot of fun this afternoon putting it together.  Take Care Thanks for looking.

Just Cause

Here are a couple of cards that you will see down at Creative Accents.  Tara asked for a couple of cards with certain papers and we got to choose a stamp.  Well I got going last night and here is what I came up with.  Love the heart shaped bling from Amuse.  I loved the stamp cause I have several friends that I should send cards to that the saying sure applies to.  Hope you enjoy and stop by Creative Accents and see them.  I am sure there will be lots of others for you to look at as well and get some mojo going for yourself.  Also take advantage of the great sale on this week.  

Oh yes the hearts on this card actually can move from side to side.   There are bling hearts on the hearts they sure don't show up in the picture well. 

This card I used one of the Die-Namics sets I think
I am going to have a lot of fun with this one. It has some really great sayings with it.

Thanks for looking. Take Care

Happy New Year Welcome 2011

Now with that title I am not going to post a New Years Card.  I did spend time today in my craft room getting things back to a more normal state.  (Christmas papers and stamps put all together)

I did make a couple of simple cards for my stash so I thought I would share with you.

First one is made with a new Hero Arts stamp from the 2011 catalog.  I think this one is going to see a lot of use.  Colored with Copic's  / saying's are also from Hero Arts.

Second card is made with Lavender Quilter again.  I had some left over paper and stuff sitting on the desk so instead of just packing things all up I put together another card.  Actually went together pretty fast. ( second cards sometimes work that way.)

Hope you enjoy.  Thank you for looking.  All the best to you in 2011.  Take Care
