Peaches And Cream Times Three.

For my stamping partner in crime I made this cute little card.
Graphic is un-known but they are three little girls form Quaker Oat Meal Scrap. 
I used small scraps of printed papers along with stamps from Hero Arts and trimmed with Brown ribbon and Cream colored lace.

Thanks for stopping in, Stamping Hugs Vada

Challenge Time Again.

For Gingersnaps #136 Glorious Greens.

From K&Company Die-Cuts I picked the Green Backed bird for the focal point.
Sizzix embossing folder was chalked with Versa Magic Hint of Pesto, Backgound was stamped with Hero Arts Music Notes in Pumice Stone distress ink. 
Keep A Green Bough, was a stamp from Oxford Impressions but it was far too large, so I typed the verse.
Teal Card is just for fun. I am not adding this to the challenge.

Working with Acetate and Alcohol Inks I cut the Bird and Eggs with dies.
The Bird and it’s cage is from Tim Holtz. 
The Eggs are Spellbinders Oval Dies. Two Hero Arts stamps were used. 
Plus the FLY stamp is from TAC.
Thanks for visiting today, hope you will enjoy my Green cards and stop into Gingersnaps and join this challenge.

Something New From My Stash.

I ordered five new punches, and thought you might
 enjoy seeing what I’ve done with a few of them. 
All these punches are from the Martha Stewart line of “All Over The Page”.
  For this card I used the “Country Tile” punch.
My stamps are from Endless Creations and Prickley Pear.
The large embossing folder is from Sizzix.

The second card I used the “Crochet Flower” punch and punched
A 2 by 3 panel for the background. 

The center panel uses Spellbinders Dies
 and stamps from JustRite and Gina K.

Both cards were colored with Copic Markers.

Thanks for your visit today, enjoy the cards.

GC #135 Favorite Papers Challenge

When I first read this challenge, I thought “This is To Easy”,
but now it’s really hard to pick just one.
For myself, I prefer just Off White paper as you can do so much with it.
Then when it comes to “Printed or Designer” paper it’s far to hard to pick, as my mood changes so much.

So today I’m going with this wonderful Blue designer paper form K & Company. I did distress this some and colored and stamped on it.
My stamps are from TAC, Cornish Heritage Farms, and Stampin’ Up.

Thank you for visiting with me today.

GC #133 Challenge Use A Line or Set Stamps

I’m Not really sure if these Hero Arts Stamps “qualifies” as a SET or not, so I’m adding another card using a set from Rubber Tapestry.
For the Hero Note cards, they are 6 ¼ x 3 ½ and fit in a small business size envelope great for mailing and need no extra postage.

Each as a large Monogram sticker from the Dollar Store.
Each contains a small heart shape brat, along with Hearts punched from a Martha Stewart punch. 
Also they are embossed with a large Sizzix embossing folder.

Hope you will enjoy them.

For the second card, The Rubber Tapestry Set, it’s an Old one, stock no. SFV 10005 Grape Border.
I used “Stardreams Shimmer” paper along with Versa Magic Chalk inks Punch is from Martha Stewart, embossing folder from Sizzix.
Have a Wonderful “Play Off”, week-end, hope your favorite team wins.

Go Packers.
