Floral Delivery

This is another card I made based on a card in Terry's gallery on Splitcoast stampers. She had so many cards in her gallery that I liked! My favorite part about this one is where the embossed background is slit for the designer paper to slip in behind it. The card I cased can be seen here.



This image is from All Night Media, and it's one I've had for a really long time. It's perfect for all kinds of cards so I've used it often. I colored with copics and added stickles to the flower centers. Thanks for looking!

Featured Butterflies

Yesterday was Featured Stamper day at Splicoast Stampers. The featured stamper was Terry Earhart and this is the card of hers I chose to case.

And here is the card I made:



It was so much fun to make, and I've had this stamp set for a while and not used it much. I used Stampin Up's Sweet Shapes stamp set and Versamagic ink.
Some of you asked me how the card making session at the retirement home went. I was suprised at some things, but overall it was a lot of fun and I think the ladies really enjoyed it too. The ladies came in and immediately started pulling all of the items out of their bags, and reached for stamps and ink and then said "Now what?" We had a sample card for them to look at and they really wanted to make theirs look just like that, but with a tiny bit of prodding they ended up getting a little creative and made their cards their own. I think what they liked the most was sponging around the edges. The color against the white was easy for them to see and the sponge easy to hold. It's hard to mess up sponging! Some of the ladies really surprised me with how easily they were able to center something. I think they want us to come back and do Christmas cards, so we shall have to think of an easy, but really nice card for them to make.
Thanks for looking!

The Many Faces Of Tilda

I guess by now you know that I was not picked to be the guest designer for Whiff of Joy stamps. :C Bummer!
I will say that the cards everyone made were beautiful and Katharina had her work cut out for her choosing one. Actually, she ended up choosing two! Thanks for everyone's support, and maybe I'll try again next time.

Okay, I am really excited to show you today's post. Remember this card and I said I had an idea brewing in my head for it? Well I came home from the retirement home yesterday and worked it out. I had some problems that almost made me not show you and re-do it so I could show you a "good" one, but I'm too excited to wait.
Here's the card re-done



It might not look that different to you at first glance, but see the little white wheel at the right of the card? If you turn that wheel you get different faces for her! I thought this might satisfy those of you who hate the fact that there's no mouth or nose. LOL! Plus, it's lots of fun making your own faces. I think I've seen little facial features that are rub ons for doll faces at Hobby Lobby before. I'm going to check them out soon and makde another one with those! Some of the faces make her look so funny! Here's the other faces (bear in mind that I am not an artist!).












LOL! Isn't that funny? The problems I had were that my flesh colored copic ran out of ink! Then I discovered that pencil marks will NOT erase after the copic has been colored over them. I ended up trying to forget about the pencil marks and I used a colored pencil over my scribbled copic to fill in the areas that didn't get colored in well. The basic instructions for this card, which some people call a viewmaster card can be found here.
Thanks for looking everybody!

A RAK!

I received a wonderful card this week from Sue over at Stampin Daly and wanted to share it with you.



It was for playing in a little game she had on her blog over the summer. I love this image, which I think may be from Sarah Kay but I'm not sure.

Anyway, Sue's card came at the perfect time because without it I'd have nothing to show you today! I have been rather busy this week and have a busy weekend ahead of me too so I haven't had much time to stamp this week.
This afternoon I am going with a friend to a retirement home. We are going to be helping a group of ladies there make cards. This will be the first time we've been there so we aren't sure how much help they will need. I'm looking forward to it though, and I hope they have a good time and want us to come back.
After that I do think I'll have some un-interrupted stamping time while my husband is immersed in football! Thanks for looking!

a little blog candy

If any of you are interested in a fun blog candy giveaway, my friend Debbie at Debbie's Die Cuts is giving away something. Go by and check her out!

Sketch Challenge

The sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers was on Wednesday and this is the card I made for it.



A really simple card to make, but it is a good one to use different designer papers. I have an idea brewing in my mind to do with this card, but I didn't have time to see if my idea would work. I will try to get to that this weekend.
I hope you all have a happy Friday, and thanks for looking!

Winner of the blog candy

Random.org chose #9 as the winner of the Halloween embellishments, which makes Lorraine the winner.
Want to try to win some blog candy from someone else? Well Stamps, Paper, Scissors is celebrating almost 25,000 hits by giving away some fun stamps! Just go here to see what they are!
Now which card did I choose to enter? Well, I was very tempted to send a link to all of my cards to Katharina but she did say one card or project so I decided against that. The one I ended up sending her was the Christmas one. A couple of people told me they liked Wanna Play, and I did too but when I uploaded it to Splitcoast Stampers Katharina herself commented on it so I knew she had already seen that one!
Now, I guess I just have to wait and see who gets the guest designer spot. There are so many talented people out there that I know Katharina is going to have a tough time picking just one! Thanks for all the well wishes from you all though!

Time to vote!

Don't forget that you have until noon today to leave a comment on this post to win the blog candy.
Okay, here is the final card I've made following Katharina's sketches. This one is sketch #26, but flipped on it's side.



This adorable image is by JRL Design. I colored with copics, then masked it and sponged on different colors of ink for the background. A lot of little details in the princess. She has diamonds at the top of her tiara and since she didn't have shoes, I made her little glittery glass slippers! I thought it was funny that the pumpkin the little cow is carrying doesn't have a nose or mouth either! LOL!

So, look back at these posts and counting today's card

sketch 18 - Hearts Afire
sketch 25 - Wanna Play?
sketch 19 - For Katharina
sketch 27 - Precious Love
sketch 22 - It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

tell me which one is the one I should enter, or do you think like Kat said a few days ago I should link her to all of them in one post? I have to submit this to her this evening, so be quick to tell me! Thanks ya'll and cross your fingers for me! I'll be back later with the winner of yesterday's candy and also let you know which card I send to Katharina. Thanks for looking!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like....

Christmas! Well, at least in my stamping room it is because of all the glitter. I made such a mess while making this card, but it was fun. This is another one up for consideration for guest designer for Whiff of Joy stamps. I followed Katharina's sketch #22 for this card.



There is a lot of detail in this card. Little red glitter dots for the holly berries in the wreath, her mittens, pom pom on her hat, and the fur trim on her boots are all flocked with white flocking. I used liquid applique at the bottom for snow and added little clear beedz and sparkly glitter on it before heating it up. The snowflakes are die cuts from a cuttlebug die.
Here's a close up of the detail flocking.




I just love the fur trim on the boots! The white embossed layer has glitter in the recessed areas, but it's kind of hard to see in the picture. The little Christmas tree charm is from Making Memories.
So, this is card give away Wednesday, but today instead of a card I'm offering a package of charms from Making Memories.



Just in time for your Halloween cards! Leave a comment on this post by noon CST tomorrow and I will have random.org pick a number for the winner. Tomorrow is also my last card for you to see before you help me pick which card to submit to Katharina, so get your thinking caps on!
Thanks for looking!

Precious Love

Okay, today's card follows Katharina's sketch #27.
I'm not really happy with my coloring on this one. Their faces look too dark and I messed up the eyes when I tried to add the highlights with my white gel pen. It's not bad enough to scrap, but I wasn't happy that I didn't leave it alone. Do you think it ruins it?



I colored with copics, chalked the background and added a little bridal confetti flower that I colored to match to the corner. The leaves are just two petals torn off of another flower. The white layer that is at an angle was embossed with a texture sheet from Ellison. I just love those things!
Two more cards to go for this guest designer thing! Thanks for looking everyone!

For Katharina

The weekend's over and it's back to the routine of the week for most of us. I wish all of you a very happy Monday! Here is another card I made for a possible submition to Katharina for the Whiff of Joy guest designer. This one follows sketch #19.



What a great sketch! I had so much fun picking out the papers and ribbon for this card. I colored the image with copics and added a little chalk to the background and some crystal lacquer to the balloons. Three more cards to go, and then you have to help me decide which one to enter!
Thanks for looking!

I Approve This Post

Today is Featured Stamper day at Splitcoast stampers. The card I chose to CASE is here, and this is the card I made for it.



I pretty much changed everything except for the layout. I found some political clip art on the internet and used them for my political buttons on the side of the card. They are behind epoxy circles. I printed out the saying using boopee font.
Surprised you with two posts today didn't I?! :)
Thanks for looking!

Wanna Play?

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I have been. We've had pretty weather, and football started so DH is happy watching that while I stamp!
Today I made another card up for consideration for Katharina's call for a Whiff of Joy guest designer. This one follows sketch #25



I used one of the Hanglar images Karin sent me and colored her with copics. I printed out the greeting "Wanna Play?" on the computer using a font called Dear Teacher. I just thought that she looked like she was looking for a friend to play with. A stamper friend of mine and I will say that to each other when we want to get together to stamp, so I thought it was cute.
I will continue to have cards following Katharina's sketches until Thursday and then I'm going to ask those of you who have been following my blog to tell me which one I should submit. I'm kind of toying with the idea of just having all of them in one gigantic blog post and submitting that link to her so she sees all of them, but that might be a little pushy and over the edge. What are your thoughts; what would you do?
Well, as always thanks for looking!

Make up day!

Well Pam said I had a day to make up for when my power was out, so today I have two cards for you! Bet you thought I wouldn't do it huh Pam? ;)

These cards are both really simple Halloween cards. I colored the images with copic markers. I do not know for sure who makes these stamps because I stamped them at a friend's house and I didn't bother to write down where they came from. I used confetti spiders on both of them. It doesn't show up in the second one very well, but I stuck it in the web on the side of the card.





I plan on making some more cards for Katharina's guest designer call today. I hope you are all able to get some stamping time in as well! Thanks for looking!

Hearts Afire

Happy Friday! I'm so glad the weekend is upon us. For some reason this has seemed like a long week. Today's card came about while I was trying to follow some sketches by Katharina. She is having a guest designer call for Whiff of Joy stamps and you can submit a card following one of her sketches to be considered. I REALLY want this! I have been having a hard time trying to come up with the perfect card. I have a few Hanglar and Magnolia images still left from Karin, and I have a couple of Precious Moments stamps. Both of those are similar to the kind of images Whiff of Joy does, so I was leaning toward using those, but then I think maybe she would like to see something a little different. So, I'm trying to just do several different cards using her sketches and then I'll submit the best one. Maybe I'll let you all vote! :)
Anyway, here's the first one.



If you click on the photo to see the larger version you might be able to see that the black layer is embossed with hearts. The image is one my sister drew a long time ago for a company called Stamping by Candlelight. I don't think the company is in business any longer. It's a sweet image though isn't it?
I colored with copics and chalked the background and then applied some rubystone glitter to the heart. I don't know who makes the greeting. I didn't follow the sketch exactly, because her sketch called for three embellishments on the right side, and I only have the one heart brad. The sketch for this card was #18 if you go to that link I gave you earlier. I like it, but I'm not sure it's good enough to impress her. Anyway, thanks to all of you for looking and I appreciate any and all feedback!

Punchy Flowers

Remember the punch I bought a week or so ago that I showed you here? Well I finally made a card using it!



I punched the flowers out and then stamped the stem portion of a flower from a Stampin Up set called The Art of Life. For the grassy area I just used the bottom part of the stem over and over in different shades of green. I had a magazine ad for Florida orange juice that I had been saving for faux cloisonne technique and I thought it would be perfect to layer behind the punched out area. I sponged around the flowers and added a pink rain dot to the middle. It looks orange against the yellow though.
Anyway, it is a cool punch. Here's a close up of the punched out part so you can see the magazine part behind it and also how the center petals are lifted up.


I'd really like it if it reached a little further so you could punch the center of a card. I've even thought about taking one apart and seeing if I could line it back up so that I could punch anywhere. I'm sure it could be done, but I'm not brave enough to try it with a punch I like! LOL!
Well, thanks again for stopping by and visiting my blog!

Flowers Grow

My sister asked me to make a card for a friend of hers who needed a little cheering up. What's more cheery than flowers?
This card was a fun one to make. I used Unity's Floral Fantastical set.


I colored the flowers and the watering can with copics. I added stickles to the flowers and a little chalk to the background. I tried to find some designer paper that would go with my flower colors. I wanted to make water pour out of the pail onto the flowers and was originally going to go with wire, but all of my wire was too thick. Then I thought of some old metallic thread I used to use when I cross stitched. It worked great! At first it was really curly because of being wrapped around the spool, but I ran it over a glue stick just a little and that straightened it out enough. Here's a close up of the "water".


Isn't it cute? I really love the water effect, and I think with the glitter and bright flowers it will cheer anyone up!
Thanks for looking!

Shine!

Well the lights in our house are shining once again! It's so wonderful to have electricity back on! This is a card I was working on to post yesterday, but the lights went out and I wasn't able to do anything else on it until yesterday afternoon.


This uses an old Stampin Up set called Take Shape. A friend of mine was selling some of her sets and this was one I picked up from her. I colored the stamps with markers and then stamped them on watercolor paper. I added little seed beads to some of the flowers as a last minute thought. The little "shine" charm is actually a bead that the ribbon is threaded through. I got a whole bunch of these with all different words on them through Oriental Trading Company. I thought with the brightness of the card, the word was appropriate. I distressed the edges of the watercolor paper by running my fingernail over them. The vase in this set can also be a hot air baloon or a light bulb or Christmas ornament with the other little stamps in the set. I'll have to play with this set a little more before I decide if I like it or not.
Thanks for looking!

I Don't Like Ike

Well Hurricane Ike passed through here and left us without power. We had just gone to the grocery store the day before so I packed up all of our perishable stuff and stored it in my friend's freezer. Now, I'm at work using the pc here to let you know that you may not be seeing any cards for a couple of days. :(
On a good note, my family in Texas is safe and my daughter and her fiance didn't run into any bad weather on their canoe trip.
I'll be back to posting when I can!

sketch challenge

Wednesday was sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The sketch was this one


I am quick to say when I don't like something I make, so let me be just as quick today to tell you that I love the card I made for this challenge. Everything just clicked in place once I got started. I did something a little different this time around too. Usually I color my image however I feel led to do and then when I go to make a card using that image I try to find cardstock, paper, and ribbon, etc to go with it. This time I purposely chose my strip of designer paper and then chose the accessories to go with that before coloring my image. It's harder in the beginning, but I really like the result of this one anyway. What do you think?



The image is from Precious Moments and I don't know who made the greeting stamp. I colored with copics. I purposely left a little slack in the twill on the left side and like the effect. Well, thanks for looking!

Hey Chica Winner

Random.org chose #18, so that makes Nicole the Stamping Librarian the winner of the Hey Chica stamp set! I'm not saying for sure, but I may have another set up soon! :)
Congratulations Nicole!

Birthday Girl

STICKY : Don't forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win some awesome blog candy! Today is the last day to enter - you have until noon CST today!

I'm wishing safety for all of those in the path of hurricane Ike. I have family in Houston, Texas and am concerned for them myself. Also, for some reason my daughter and her fiance have chosen this weekend to go canoeing on a river in south Missouri! And, yes they are aware of the weather forecasts; I asked! Here in Arkansas we have rain and a lot of wind. The rain does make for a great stamping day though, and it also helps me not to worry as much. Worry is such a waste of time and energy and serves no purpose whatsoever. I really try hard to busy myself rather than waste time worrying over things I can't change and usually don't ever come to be. I have a framed piece in my craft room that I found in a flea market several years ago entitled "My Ten Commandments" and number one is "Thou shalt not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities." I believe this with all of my heart, but sometimes it's so hard not to worry. Okay, enough with the philosophical stuff and on with today's card!
Today I'm using another one of the Magnolia images that Karin sent me. I did add a nose and mouth to her to keep you all happy! I really was surprised at how many of you didn't even notice that these image didn't have a complete face! Anyway, here's my card.



I used a scalloped circle nestability to cut out the opening. I put little square brads in the corners and popped it over the image with dimensionals. The image was colored with copics. Don't you just love that she's wearing those high heels? I added some sparkle to the confetti with a clear stardust pen. The Happy Birthday greeting at the top is from the Stampin Up set Simple Sayings II.
I'll be back later to announce the winner of the Hey, Chica stamp set! Thanks for looking!

Looking for stamping ideas?

STICKY : If you're looking for blog candy just leave a comment on this post! If this is your first time here, I hope you'll take a look at some of my older posts and maybe decide to subscribe!

Sometimes you just can't think of what to create and need to look around for inspiration. That's where today's card comes in. Recently someone wanted to trade for Shy Bear images and I was stamping them out for her. When I got them all finished and then cleaned up my stamps I went to go make a card and my mind went blank! I tried pulling out some old sets and stamped a little, but I didn't like anything I did. I started to flip through some old stamping magazines trying to find something to spark my interest. Nothing I wanted to do. Then one of the shy bear images I had stamped earlier came to mind and this card is the result. Nothing fancy, no embellishments or special techniques. Just a cute image that I enjoyed coloring.



I wrote a title for the book "Stamping 101" sort of a joke that this little bear is looking for some ideas too! LOL! I almost made it look like she was reading scary stories and I was going to make this a Halloween card with the caption "Don't get spooked!". This would also be a great card to give to someone in a book club. Just change the title of the book to fit your need.
The company that bought the shy bear images has recently add quite a few of them to her web site, so if you like these little guys go take a look here!
I hope all of you have got your mojo going!

I know one person who has her mojo, and that is Pam Pruett. Pam recently got her Hey Chica stamp set from My Favorite Things and shared this card with me!


Isn't it cute?! I love the sentiment, which is also from My Favorite Things, and all the glitter! Here's what Pam said about the card:
"What I did was emboss the stamped image with fine line detail powder (sometimes I have a problem with bleeding when I color and the embossing takes care of that) Then I colored her lips and hair tie with a red copic. Her hair I used SU Summer Sun, dress..purple copic glitter marker....eyelid, copic charcoal glitter marker and her skin is a copic Ciao marker R00. The skull paper is the new Halloween DP from SU. I did have fun coloring her! Like I've told you before...I have a hard time coming up with things so I know I probably could have done better but I just didn't know what else to do!! She just puts me in mind of a sassy biker chick or someone with some spunk to her."
Pam, I'm so glad you let me share your card, and I hope you enjoy using the stamp set.
Thanks for looking everyone! Tomorrow I will announce the winner of the stamp set!

Winner of card give away

Hi everyone. Sorry it took me so long to get back with a winner. I've been having computer problems. Anyway, the winner is #8 which means Catherine gets her choice of cards from yesterday. Thanks for commenting, and there will be a new giveaway on the 24th. Also, don't forget that you have until Saturday to comment for the Hey Chica stamp set I'm giving away!

Two cards and a tutorial

STICKY : If you're looking for blog candy just leave a comment on this post! If this is your first time here, I hope you'll take a look at some of my older posts and maybe decide to subscribe!

The other day I was at work with absolutely nothing to do. I didn't bring any stamped images with me to color which I sometimes do for days like that, but I did have a bunch of embroidery thread there from the days when I used to do a lot of cross stitching. I decided to do a little paper embroidery just to pass the time. I found some free patterns at Stitching Cards and printed out one with some pretty flowers. About 20 minutes later I had a card stitched and ready to put on a card when I got home later.



Once I got home I chalked around the flowers, clipped the corners and mounted it on a card that I tied a ribbon around. I thought someof you might like a tutorial on how to do this. It's very simple, but makes a card look like something special. Now before I get started on the tutorial let me just say that once I started taking pictures of the tutorial I thought "This is silly! Who needs to see pictures of me doing this step?", but I had already started with the pictures and now they're all uploaded to my pc, so I'm going ahead with it no matter how silly it may be.
For the tutorial I went back to Stitching Cards and picked out a pattern. I chose a holly wreath, and printed it out. Gather your pattern, a piece of cardstock big enough to accomodate the pattern, a piercer, a mousepad, and some tape.


In this photo you can see my home made piercer that I made with a needle stuck in the eraser end of a pencil.
The next step is to tape the pattern to the card where you want it to be. You can use repositional tape if you have it, but I just use plain old scotch tape and I stick it to my jeans once so it's not as tacky and that way it won't tear my cardstock when I remove it. Here my pattern is taped to the cardstock and I'm ready to poke my holes.



Lay your cardstock with the pattern taped to it on top of a mouse pad and simply poke holes where there are black dots on your pattern.



When you have finished that, carefully remove the pattern from the card and your cardstock should now look like this:



There is a stitching guide that comes with the pattern telling you which holes to come out of and which holes to go in to create the whole thing. Simply follow your stitching pattern.



I began with the gold bow. I chose a gold thread and brought my needle from the back of the card to the front in the hole the pattern tells me to. Tape the end of your thread to the back of your card with a small piece of tape.



Now you just follow your pattern going in the holes it tells you to and out the holes it tells you to.



Once I finished the bow I was ready to move on to the holly leaves. For the leaves I chose three colors of green and used one strand from each.



Work the leaves in the same way you worked the bow. If you run out of thread, just tape it to the back and get some more thread. The only thing I had to watch for on this pattern was not to tape my threads in the center of the wreath because I didn't want them to show through the white cardstock. I taped my ends directly to the stitched areas. Here's my wreath progressing.



Now the pattern called for using red beads for the berries, but I didn't have any beads on hand, so I chose to do red french knots. Here is a close up of my french knots.



Now my wreath is finished so all that's left to do is cut it the size I want and layer it with other cardstock or paper and make a card! Here's my finished card.



I hope you enjoyed today's cards and that maybe you found the tutorial helpful. There are a lot of fun and free patterns out there, so give it a try sometime for something a little different!
Thanks for looking!

Wednesday Giveaway!

STICKY : If you're looking for blog candy just leave a comment on this post! If this is your first time here, I hope you'll take a look at some of my older posts and maybe decide to subscribe!

Well today is card giveaway day! All you have to do is leave a comment on today's post by noon CST tomorrow and I'll have random.org pick a winner. The winner will get today's card along with an envelope that I usually stamp to co-ordinate with the card. Today is a little different than most card giveaway days though because today I have TWO cards and the winner gets to choose which one they want!







Both of these cards use the Pick A Petal set from Stampin Up for the bug's wings. The head and bodies are punched circles, and the antennae are hand drawn. The top card has little pierced holes for the bug trail. The bottom one has hand doodling around the frame. I think the top one is cuter because the bug is shorter and fatter! Too bad I don't think I'm cuter shorter and fatter! LOL!
Tomorrow I've got a tutorial for you, so be sure to come back for that. Okay, go comment now and thanks for looking!

Happy Hedgehog

STICKY : If you're looking for blog candy just leave a comment on this post! If this is your first time here, I hope you'll take a look at some of my older posts and maybe decide to subscribe!

I bought a few stamps from someone recently and this little Penny Black hedgehog stamp was one of them. I had to ink it up and color it because it's just so cute!


I colored with copics, chalked the sky, and pierced around the corners of one of the layers I used uner the image. The little circle is popped up on one of the corners. Looking at it now I wish I had added some ribbon somewhere.
Tomorrow is card give away day! I have two cards for you tomorrow and the winner can choose which one they want, so be sure to come back tomorrow and comment for a chance to win! Thanks for looking!

Where oh where has my mojo gone?

STICKY : Don't forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win some awesome blog candy!

Okay, yesterday was featured stamper day at Splitcoast Stampers. I had such a hard time choosing a card to CASE and then I'd start one and I'd hate it and I'd start looking for a different one to CASE! I hate days like that. I eventually chose this card but you'd never know it from looking at my card!



After doing that I gave up trying to do anything. Some days you have your mojo and some days you don't. Mine was definitely taking a day off! On a more positive note though, I did get a little further along in the tutorial I'm working on. Wishing you all better creativity than I'm having! Thanks for looking!

Big Easy Smile

STICKY : Don't forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win some awesome blog candy!

I borrowed the Stampin Up set Big Pieces from a friend a couple of weeks ago and hadn't made one card with it! I finally decided I had to sit down and make a card before returning it to her. This is the one I came up with.




I paired it up with a phrase from Simple Sayings II and added some ribbon and some pierced holes. The ribbon was originally going to be on top, but when I was scoring my lines my scorer slipped and it left a mark on the cardstock so I covered it with ribbon. I think a set of these cards would be cute. Thanks for looking!

Dotted Butterfly and Blog Candy!!

Did you see that my guitar card was runner up for card of the week on Barefoot Stamper? I was so excited when I found out!
Another exciting thing is I have one Hey, Chica stamp set to give away as blog candy! Just leave a comment on this post by noon CST September 13th, and I will have random.org pick a number to choose the winner.

Okay, here is another stamp camp card. This one uses Stampin Up's Flight of the Butterfly stamp set. I think this set is a really sweet one. Again, it's so simple I don't need to do any talking about it.



I only have one more card from the stamp camp to show you, and since it's my least favorite of the whole bunch instead of waiting until tomorrow I'm going to surprise you with TWO cards today!



This one uses Stampin Up's Dreams du Jour set and Floral background. I just wasn't fond of this set at all and that plays a big part in my not liking the card much. So, that's all of my stamp camp cards. Tomorrow you'll be back to seeing my own stuff! Also, I'm working on a new tutorial that I think you'll like!
Thanks for looking!
