A person should never go "window" shopping in a stamp store with another stamper, unless that person wants to lay out some serious cash.  Oh well.  I take full responsibility...These poppies are from Paper Source, and although I have almost completely sworn off rubber stamps, these called my name.  I had to have both, of course.

Rosie Posie Sympathy

Sympathy cards are always difficult to make, I think, but beautiful stamps and paper make it a bit easier.  This one is for my friend who recently lost her dad.

More shiny things

Another use of Zing sparkly embossing powder--this time silver and gold.Paper: PTI White, True BlackInk: VersamarkStamps: PTI Harvest Berries, Think Big FavoritesOther: Zing embossing powder silver, gold

Ooh, shiny!

I get distracted by shiny things. This is sparkly copper embossing powder by Zing, and I had to try it out on those ginkgo leaves in Harvest Berries. It is so hard to photograph glitter!

Red Nordic Winter

My new favorite Waltzingmouse stamp set is Nordic Winter. LOVE. It looks great in any color, but I especially love it embossed in white on red. Not too Christmasy, but still wintery, right?It took me forever to figure out what to put in front of that pattern, because it's so delicious. I decided to go simple. I ended up making 10 of these.Paper: PTI White, Pure Poppy, True BlackInk: VersamarkStamps: WMS Nordic Winter, PTI Women of LifeOther: White Filigree embossing powder, dimensional tape

CAS Class-White Space

We were challenged to embrace the white space on a card. It's easy to do when the colors and images are bold and bright. I am loving Rosie Posie, can you tell? It's the perfect all-around image set for both masculine and feminine cards.

CAS Class One Layer Card

Okay, so you already saw a version of this card in different colors, but I really like the trick of the Fresh Alphabet in the hexagons. Great for one-layer cards!Paper: PTI WhiteInk: SU Brilliant Blue, Green GaloreStamps: PTI Rosie Posie, Fresh Alphabet, Big Birthday Wishes

CAS Class One Stamp 2 Ways

Here is my attempt at using the same stamps in different ways, also on flat cards. I LOVE that PTI's Fresh Alphabet fits into those hexagons from Rosie Posie! ...and can anyone photograph Summer Sunrise adequately? I sure can't.
