Thinking Summer

With the weather being so cold today, I am thinking summer can't get here soon enough!! Here's a girlie card for a summer birthday or celebration. The sundress was made using word window and tag punches, ribbon, brads and Designer Series Paper. Sadly, summer is still five long months away.

Inspired By Nature II

I am still playing with this stamp set. This card was inspired by another stamper's card I saw on Splitcoaststampers, thank you. I used Close to Cocoa, Old Olive and Very Vanilla cardstock. For the sun I used stampin Pastels. The cattails were made from the horizontal slot punch. This is a great masculine birthday card.

Inspired by Nature

I'm still playing with some of my new stamps and thought I would share a card I made using Inspired by Nature stamp set. I love this set. I wasn't crazy about this card until I added the glitter to the flowers. When I find that a card I made just doesn't have the pizazz I'm looking for, out comes the glitter or sticklers. I guess I am the glitter/stickler queen, LOL!! Try is sometime.

Game Night

Thought I would give you a preview of some of the new stamp sets in the new 2009 Spring and Summer Stampin' Up catalog. This set is called Game Night. I bought this set to use on scrapbook pages but thought I would try a card with it also. In the new catalog there is coordinating 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper and a wheel.

Simply Sent

I've had this Simply Sent Flower Power Card Elements kit for a while now and decided it was time to try it. Stampin' Up made it so quick and easy to coordinate one stamp set with the card elements to complete 9 cards in 3 styles. You can change the designs to make them what you want, which I did. You can find these card elements on page176 of the Fall and Winter Catalog. The coordinating Stamp Set is Wow Flowers. This card took 10 minutes to make. GOT TO LOVE THAT!
