Just Believe

More playing with my new stamps and ink colors.  This is the same as Monday's color combination: Poppy and Daffodil. 

The stamp set is Just Believe, and believe me, you'll see a lot more samples with this one. It's a beautiful and easy to use set.  I colored directly on the stamp with my markers. The die cut butterflies add a bit of fun to the card.

The Best Part of Waking Up...

If you're old enough to remember the Folger's commercials, you know what they say is the best part of waking up. I live in Seattle, so of course, it's not Folgers in my cup 'cuz we're coffee snobs.

The Morning Cup stamp set was my first "must have" from the new catalog.  I confess, I'm a coffee addict. My husband frequently reminds me that I emailed him asking if it was ok to spend an outrageous amount of money on a new espresso machine and then proceeded to order it before he responded. In my defense, I gave him several hours to respond.  It wasn't my fault he was in China and it was the middle of the night there.

But, I digress.  This colors on the card are Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake (I like the sound of those desserts together), and Baja Breeze. The little cup on the bottom right is there to cover up my wayward paper piercing. Maybe I shouldn't have had that extra cup of coffee after all.

Awash With Flowers color challenge

This card is for SCS's color challenge to use Concord Crush, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz.  I substituted Certainly Celery for Pear because they're really similar and nothing has convinced me that I have to buy Pear.

The stamp set is Awash With Flowers. It was fun watercoloring on Confetti White cardstock with my Aqua Painter. You can't tell from the scan, but the 3 circular thingies are self-adhesive rhinestones.

This is one of the first cards I've made with my new goodies.  The floral stamp set is Friends Never Fade and the words are from Word Play.  

The yellow color is Daffodil Delight, a new standard color, and the red is Poppy Parade, a new In Color.  Oh, and the green is Wild Wasabi, which is a former In Color and now a standard color.  My friend, Lynne, loves to say "Wasabi!" so she was especially happy that this color reappeared. 

Have a great day!

It's been crazy around here for the last couple months with the kids on 2 swim teams and other assorted summer activities.  Last night was the first night in 2 months where there wasn't practice or a meet.  Not complaining, just explaining why I haven't been posting.  This phase of our lives will be over before we know it and it really is a lot of fun.  Anyway, all my new stamps are waiting patiently to get inked up for the first time. 

Since I haven't shared my own work, I'll share some SU creations.

I'll be back soon, I promise.
