Even though I haven't been blogging, I have been stamping!

It is the end of busy and very fun weekend for our family. So while I have a few minutes here this morning while the kiddos watch a quick tv show while we are getting going on our day, I wanted to post some cards that I stamped this week - YAY! I was pretty happy with what I came up with, so I definitely wanted to share.

The first one was inspired by the cool Papertrey stamps that are all the rage these days (and with great reason). I haven't been able to get my hands on them. Nichole (who designs the stamps and makes amazing creations with them) releases a new set 1x a month, so my new plan is to pick up a few sets when the new one comes out this month. She has this awesome Butterfly set which inspired this card.

This card was made from one of the hostess sets from the SU catalog. I think that this one is really cute too, and I since it hadn't seen any ink, I wanted to use it.

Stamps Used: Reason to Smile (that's the hostess set), Small Sayings (love this set from a mini catty this year!)

CS - Bashful Blue The CS I used was all driven by the fun Fancy Pants PP that I used

Inks Used: Just Pink Passion

I folded the wings of the butterfly upward to give the card some dimension, added 2 eyelets and that's it.

So the next card that I whipped up this week was for my anniversary! :) I used a couple of the SCS challenges this week (Featured Stamper and the Card Sketch) to get me going and this is what I came up with:

Stamps used - All Through the Year, Small Saying (yep used the set again and I thought it was just perfect for my anniversary!)
CS used: Crate Paper (Brunch collection), Elegant Eggplant, Ruby Red,
Inks Used - the Tsukineko Brilliance Dew Drops Ink in Red Rocket Gold (LOVED how this looked stamped on the PP - so sparkly and pretty!)
Accessories: Ribbon, CM Oval Cutter, Ticket Corner Punch

I really liked how it came out and so DH! I posted it to my gallery on SCS - I haven't posted on there is quite a while even though I have been stamping, even if it has not been as often as I would like!
