Here's one of the cards we did in a class I recently taught. I used Cherry Cobbler cs and the polka dot is some I got @ Hobby Lobby. I was pleased with the way it turned out. This stamp is in a set of 4 made by Hero Arts and was retired but they brought it back. Wish other stamps companies would do this too.

We were going to a neighbors for dinner and I did not have a wine bag so I used this apron. I thought it was cute. The stamp is a Rubbernecker stamp. I stamped it with black ink and tied it with black ribbon. I used Scor tape to hold it in place.

Here's a card I did using Cherry Cobbler & Marina Mist. I used a background stamp that I have had for awhile. I bought it @ a stamp convention. The manufacturer is SavvyStamps. I used my new stamp set Bliss. I have always used the background stamp in light colors. Not sure I like the way this card turned out. Too bad, it is already in the mail! I really do like the Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler together tho.

Here's the card I made for our Sat. shoe box. The stamp is a Penny Black one. We exchanged stamps @ Christmas and then were to use the ones we got @ our next exchange. I love these colors together. Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. The girls cards looked better than mine so I came home and changed mine. The difference was that I colored the stamp with markers and then stamped. I got a very washed out card. They colored the stamp with brown and then added the not quite navy. That worked better. That is one of the reasons I love shoe box, the exchange of ideas is great!

Here's a card I made for Marcy for her birthday. I used to stamp on figured paper a lot. I especially like to do this on checked or polka dotted paper. Just for a different look I ran the piece through the Swiss Dots embossing folder. This stamp is from Endless Creations. Check out their website. They have some really darling cards.

I haven't used this stamp in a long time. I used a layout that I did last month. I just changed the stamp. I am all out of this paper. It makes a guy card really easy! The stamp is by Morningstar. I bought it @ a convention. It is plain and I just used different stamps to make the figure and then cut them out.

Happy Valentines Day!
Here's a card I made for Valentines day. I used Real Red, Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder and Martha's heart punch. I used SU Love You Much stamp set. On the inside I used a retired SU set. You can't really see the saying in the picture but it says Be My Valentine. I cut the heart shape using my Heart Nestie. I hope you like it.

I bought this stamp @ the convention. It makes the plaid on the top of the card. A real pain to get even without the stamp-a-magig. I did not use it but it turned out OK. This cupcake stamp is one I have had for a long time. It is made by DeNami. I used glitter glue for the icing.

Here's another card I made for my VA guys. I started out with this image that I stamped a long time ago. The stamp is one owned by Peg. I don't know who made it. I started out trying to color the car with straw and the vintage photo. I got out of line so I decided to cover the whole piece with ink. The AMuse checked paper was a scrap I had and it was black & white which did not go with the straw & v. photo so I just colored it with the inks. It certainly turned out differently than what I thought when I started but I like it.

Here's a card I made for the VA birthdays for Feb. I loved this paper and decided to use the Popsicle stamp that has never seen ink. Didn't really like it until I added stickles. Maybe not a wise choice since it is so cold but it's on it way!

Actually I make get well cards for the point. When some on is sick, has an accident etc. the Sunshine Committee sends a card. I got one in the mail after my fall. Inside was a band aid, an aspirin and a life saver! Too cute. I had forgotten that I made this card.

Here's a card I made for one of my swap groups. It is SU Mellow Moss (wish they had kept this color!) and Burgundy. I used a level 2 hostess set. Don't know if it is 2 step stamping or not but that's what I did. I first tried with pink & burgundy but did not like that so I just used the burgundy. I like it! I wish I knew who made this saying. It is an unmounted stamp & I also like the font.
