Oh and I know people have said on SCS that they don't need to use their Stamp-a-ma-jig for this set - and they're probably right. But I did go through a heck of a lot of tries before I got it perfect (I'm a perfectionist) so I'll be purchasing a stamp-a-ma-jig to use with mine!

The stamps are from My Favorite Things and is called Dinomite. They have 5 new sets coming out on Oct. 1st and I love the samples I've seen so far. I'm saving my pennies for the ones I love!

I used the sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers and am really happy with the layout - I'll definitely use this one again. The ghost originally had a frame around him but I inked only the ghost so the two stamps would go together better. I coloured the ghost using my white signo pen. The paper is all scraps I had from scrapbooking - from Creative Imaginations and KI memories. This card will go to my nephew Robson!

This is a quick thank you card that I did for my sample pack. It is one of my favorite colour combinations - certainly celery, pale plum, and perfect plum. I used irridescent embossing powder over the entire main panel so it's really sparkly in person.
I'm sorry I haven't posted regularly - I've been in a little bit of a funk lately. Not so much a stamping funk, just a good old fashioned funk. I'll try to post a bit more regularly (for all two of you out there reading my blog - lol!).
Hope you're having a great weekend!

Paper: Patterned paper by 3 bugs in a rug, Apricot appeal cs, whisper white
Accessories: Paper piercer, circle punches, ribbon, stickles
I think it turned out super cute! I have had this bee stamp for a couple weeks now and haven't had a chance to use it yet - so it was about time!I also wanted to make a little card for my son. Tomorrow is his first full day of school and I thought I'd tuck something in his lunch bag. I got my Daphne and Donald stamps from All That Scraps and was anxious to ink them up! I didn't put a ton of effort into this - because my son won't notice it. So even though I think it needs something more, I'm leaving it as is cause he will love it anyway!
Stamps: Donald goes to School (C.C. Designs)
I got new stamps on Friday but haven't had a chance to ink them yet - hopefully soon!

The boys card is Changito on a cuttlebugged background. I used linen thread to hang the tag. I think I'm going to hunt for something to put in the bottom right corner though - my eye seems drawn to the empty space there.

I know it looks similar to the card I made for Beate's sketch challenge, but that's because I'm creating samples for a company whose colours are turquoise and brown and who wants a thank you card with flower images - thus the similar cards.
Yesterday I popped into Dollarama to look for party supplies (why can't I find any Power Rangers party supplies???!!!) and I "happened" to walk down the craft aisle and found these!
5 spools of ribbon in each package - 1 metre on each spool for $1 (so 5 metres for $1). As you can see I bought 7. I'm sure it's not amazing quality, but I'm still trying to build a stash and this will come in extremely handy! What a score!

This is a Father's Day card using Grillafella. There is linen thread behind the image and the brads are "screw" brads by Karen Foster. I coloured him using my prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol.

I made this card (in all of about 10 mins!) last night. I used the cool caribbean paper because it matches their wedding flowers and I embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder. The ribbon is black velvet. I thought it turned out quite well for a 10 min. card!
Hope you're having a great weekend!

Other: Sewing Machine, ribbon, prima flower, stickles, liquid applique, prismacolor pencils and gamsol
Still madly trying to finish cards. And I'm working on one more pencil bouquet for Riley's new teacher - who he meets tomorrow for the first time. Tonight however - I'm taking a break. A couple girlfriends and I are going out for dinner. It's been a while so I'm excited about going out and taking a break from being "mom" and being "Kerry" for a while.
