Let Your Light Shine

I took advantage of Stampaganza and bought some new stamp sets that I had been wanting.  When I saw the Perfect Day set, I knew it would be perfect for masculine cards.  I don't make too many of them and I always resort to my favorite Tim Holtz set when I do.  I also thought I would try a sponging technique.  I really like how it turned out.  Tell me what you think. 

There are only a couple of days left to take advantage of Stampaganza.  Buy two stamp sets and get one of equal or lesser value free!

All Products CTMH unless otherwise stated:
Cardstock: Pacifica, Elemental, Colonial White

A Little Birdie Told Me...

Here is a quick, cute little card I cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I used the Dotty for You paper pack--you'll probably be seeing this for awhile since I bought three packages--and the June Stamp of the Month. The label shape was also cut from AP. I dyed the ribbon using CTMH buttercup ink and the pearl flourish is from Michael's.

This is a view of the inside. I used the little birdie that was cut out from the front of the card.

You can still get the June SOTM for $5 by making a $50 purchase and you can compound your savings by taking advantage of Stampaganza. Buy two stamp sets and get one of equal or lesser value for free. Just click on the Shop With Me badge on the right side of the screen.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday!

My cousin called this morning and invited me over for a little get-together this afternoon to celebrate my aunt's 83rd birthday.  Of course, me being me, didn't have a card already prepared.  I turned to my go-to Cricut Art Philosphy cartridge and came up with this card.  I was visiting Terry Ann Diack's blog and she cut these flowers for a mini album and I knew I had to use them for something.   When I was trying to come up with a quick card idea, I thought of these flowers.  The flowers are on page 50 (flower8) and the branch is on page 35 (branch2).  I cut the branch at 2" and the flowers and layers at 1.75".  I used the Dotty for You paper pack and Lagoon ink.   The sentiment stamp is one that comes in the Cricut bundle.  I placed a white layer on top of the white card base and distressed the edges.  I think I might add more pearls to the top right and bottom left corner.  What do you think?

Now, do I have time to put together a little card set as a gift?  Hmm, better get going.

Now is a great time to get those stamp sets that you've had on your wish list.  From now through the end of June, for every two stamp sets you purchase at full retail price, you can get one free.  That's three for the price of two!  

If that isn't enough, take a look at the June Stamp of the Month, Life is Tweet.  I think this is the cutest set ever.  To get yours, simply make a $50 purchase and you can get this set for only $5.  To order, click the "Shop with Me" link on the right side of the page.
