Thanksgiving Card

This is my favorite card from last night. I absolutely LOVE my new Year After Year set that this pumpkin is in! I stamped the pumpkin all over in Versa Mark onto More Mustard Cardstock. Then used Very Vanilla to stamp a Chocolate Chip pumpkin and 'Happy Thanksgiving' from Holidays & Wishes. I colored the pumpkin with my chalks and blender pens, matted it onto Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip and put it all together. You could use any stamp in this Year After Year set this way and have a bunch of different, classy cards!

Funky Color Christmas

I feel this is similar to the my last post (the same stamp sets), but different enough to include. I love the Green Galore and Regal Rose for a 'sassy' Christmas card! I stamped the stars from Background Basics and the tree (from Year After Year) in Green Galore, and colored in the tree with my blender pens and ink pads. Then I cut a Regal Rose strip and stamped the sentiment from Holidays & Wishes in Regal Rose on it. I wanted something extra on the strip, so I inked only part of the background stamp in Rose and added it to the strip, near the Merry Christmas. Isn't it fun?!

Neighbor's Birthday Invitations

My neighbor (11 years old) brought over her (non-SU) horse stamp today and we made some

invitations for her birthday party in September. We stamped the Paisley from Polka Dots & Paisley and colored it in with a blue colored pencil. Then we stamped the horse on to white cardstock and ran the edge of the horse paper in the brown ink pad to distress it. We stamped the sentiment from Hugs and Wishes (my newest set) along a blue strip and glued it all together. I think this paisley looks great with the horse! I hope her mother likes them!

Happy 30th!

This is the wrapping for the gift below. I had this wrapping paper that I love and I wanted a little card for it that matched, but was special for her. I used the "Happy Birthday" in purple from God's Blessings and overstamped 30 in my Whimsical Numbers set in green. Used a couple different greens that I had sitting around that matched the colors on the wrapping and that's it.

Inside Birthday Wrapping

I have made a few sets of these as gifts and I am so pleased with them! I think they're fun and classy. I try to make every card different and use a different paper for each. The patterned papers are the inside of business envelopes, recycled. The "S" is from the Letterpress Alphabet set. I used some grosgrain ribbon on these too. Black & white cardstock. This particular set is for a friend's 30th birthday today - Her last name is Smith.
