Alright, I am on a kick of doing some QUICK & EASY cards because at the moment it seems all I have time for. So I got this set at the last minute before it disappeared forever into retirement. I am trying to get "guy" stamps because that is mostly what is in my family and they are kinda tired of the "girlie" trying to be guy cards. So, here is my first quick card with this set.

INKS: Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi
PAPER: Cool Carribbean, Wild Wasabi

Simple Anniversary

Here is a quick and simple anniversary card. I made this for my husband for our anniversary this past week. He is a regular guy who likes the simple cards. I did step it up with the white embossing powder. After using it on the last card I did with the big thumbs up for it I decided that I really like that look. (Guess what I'll be playing with for a while! lol)

STAMPS: Headline Alphabet & Headline Numbers
INKS: White Craft
PAPERS: Bashful Blue & Maine Blueberry DSP
ACCESSORIES: White Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Chocolate Chip Wide Grosgrain

3 Ways ~ Same Card

Alright girls, I was playing with this card that I want to send out to a few people and decided that each one would be a little different. So I did a simple and two others that I stepped-up a little. Just curious as to which one you all like. I like them all.

This first I did is a simple one done with just white craft ink.

This one I did with white craft ink & iridescent ice embossing powder on the flowers and on the circle of "to you from me". (doesn't show well in picture)
This one is done with white craft ink and white embossing powder on flowers and words.

First Creation of New Year!

Hey girls!!! How have you all been doing? Do you have all your Christmas decorations down yet? Have you started the new year with gusto? I have finally gotten some time to spend stamping. Since I love the Ski Slope series paper I once again pulled it out and came up with a quilt type of card (well in my head it was suppose to be more quilt like). I had this card in mind for a Thank You card for a friend and ended up making 3 or 4 of these to send out! Hope you enjoy! I am just glad to have the opportunity to stamp again!

PAPERS: Riding Hood Red, Ski Slope DSP
ACCESSORIES: Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, 1 3/8" Square Punch
