Stamping with friends

Last week I had some ladies over to make birthday cards - it was a lot of fun and made a nice break to my substituting schedule. (The phone started ringing this morning at 5:15 but today I finally said no - I need a day to catch up on my chores, clean the chicken coop, get milk and I am volunteering at the school today too).

Here is one of the masculine cards we made - I told you I'm loving the Sea Stamps set! This one was inspired by a card I saw on the Embellish Magazine blog.



Card Materials:
Stamps: Sea Stamp, Happy Birthday (retired)
Accessories: TAC Kraft cardstock, black cardstock, watercolor paper, black embossing powder, Noir palette ink, Tombow markers, aquabrush, buttons, Nestabilities

The other card has lots and lots of glitter...chunky glitter on top of the cupcake and stickles around the outside. I'm not always a sparkly type of gal but this card just screamed for it and I think it turned out so cute. This cupcake is one of the Purchase with Purchase stamps that you can get for just $2.95 from The Angel Company. It's the cutest little thing and has a wonderful ice cream cone in the set and two smiley faces.



Card Materials:
Stamps: All Smiles
Accessories: My Minds Eye polka dot paper, TAC brown cardstock (this is really a nice dark brown). chunky glitter, Stickles, watercolor pencil and Dove blender pen

Hope you are in the middle of a terrific week!!
