O Sole Meow

This is a simple card using my new Cat Party stamp set from Crafty Secrets.  I have been in love with this set for a long time.  I just love the retro feel of these stamps!  I had the cat button for many years and thought it looked cute with the stamp.

Stamping 411 Sketch

I used Sketch 114 from Stamping 411. The link to Stamping 411 blog is Check out this blog if you haven't seen it yet. The designers for the blog are all very talented. You will like what you see! I used pink Flower Soft on the tree. I just LOVE Flower Soft! It adds so much to your project and yet doesn't add much bulk so you can mail your card easily.

Recipe: Thoughts & Prayers (SU!) and birthday sentiment from Scrappy Cat. Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and Close to Cocoa card stock; Close to Cocoa, Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky ink; Pink Pirouette striped grosgrain, Cuttlebug embossing folder, pink Flower Soft and a little pink heart rhinestone.

Saturday Evening Post

I bought this awesome stamp at Smudges' garage sale. I made this ATC (Artist Trading Card) for a Yahoo group I am on. For those of you who are not familiar with ATC's, they are miniature works of art that measure 3 1/2 x 2 1/2. If you have not made one yet, give it a try. They are so fun!

Recipe: Stamp - Saturday Evening Post; Card Stock - Not Quite Navy, Bravo Burgandy, Basic Black and Glossy White (Stampin' Up!); Ink - Basic Black and reinkers for coloring in image, Vintage Photo Distress Ink; Accessories - Distresser

Graduation Card

I made this card for my Stamper' 10 group using the themes of embossing and graduation. This tree from Thoughts & Prayers is one of my favorite stamps. It is so versatile.

Recipe: Stamps - Thoughts & Prayers, Congrats; Card stock - Whisper White, Baha Breeze & Baha Breeze DSP; Ink - Baha Breeze, VersaMark; Accessories - Winter White embossing powder, white grosgrain (all from Stampin' Up)
