Stamping Party cards

I hosted this month's stamping party, and this is what we stamped. Sorry I don't have the details for the stamps, etc, we used, but enjoy the cards anyway!

"you're absolutely fabulous"

"No, seriously - you are!
Birthday hugs and wishes"

This was a Mother's Day card we made. When I got it home, I added the blue to the middle flower... and now wish I hadn't! Oh, well, my grandma will love it regardless! I love the brown and blue color combo!

I earned $35 free merchandise from the party, plus a hostess set, so I got a 6x6 paper pack for the hostess set (because I didn't really like any of the other stamp sets enough to get them!), and the Baroque Motifs stamp set, and Wild Wasabi ink, re-inker and paper. YEAH! I LOVE free stuff!

This is not a favorite of mine, but I'm guessing my BIL won't mind. I did NOT make this card at the stamping party. I got the colors from the strip of patterned paper on the side, then stamped the larger background paper. Here are the details:

Stamps: SU! Fly Fishing
Paper/Ink: (My white cardstock is always from Walmart) SU! Sage Shadow, Marigold Morning, Cranberry Crisp, Basic Brown; Patterned paper is from a stash that my SIL gave me and I don't know who makes it.
Other: Marvy Giga Oval punch


Baroque Motifs

The card below is the same layout as one I posted yesterday. I borrowed a friend's stamp set for these, and just stamped a whole bunch of the backgrounds and images to cut out and use later.
Here's another Mother's Day card, just a little different than the one I posted yesterday.
Stamps: SU! Baroque Motifs and Fancy Flexible Phrases (for the sentiment)
Cardstock/Inks: SU! Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink
Other: White ribbon from Walmart, pearl from a scrapbooking kit, heart page pebble (from I don't know where), Marvy Super Jumbo Scalloped Square punch, and I also used the deckle blade on my paper cutter.
I decided to do something a little different with this card, since I have all my Mother's Day cards finished now. I couldn't quite figure out how to use this bigger, square motif, and I finally came up with this. Most of the details are the same as above, so I'll just fill in the ones NOT listed above.
Stamps: SU! Priceless
Other: Marvy Mega Scalloped Square punch, Crystal glitter from Mark Enterprises, and SU! Purely Pomegranate ribbon.

I think that's about it for the cards like this... I used all the stuff that I stamped! Hope you have a great day!

Pink Morning Glory

My mom gave me this large morning glory stamp, so I thought it would be fitting if I made her birthday card with it! :-)

Stamps: Morning Glory by Stampendous, Morning Glories (border) by Hero Arts, sentiment ? - it's a foam stamp that someone gave to me.
Paper: White Cardstock from Walmart, SU! Slumber Party PP, SU! Regal Rose
Ink: SU! Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Green Galore, Gable Green.
Other: Marvy Giga Circle punch, oval page pebble (someone gave these to me, too, so I have no idea where they came from)

Favorite Peeps

This is the Easter card I made for my hubby, Chris, to go with the Peeps that I buy him every year. He loves Peeps, and I can't STAND them! Anyway, here's a couple pictures of the card.

Attached to the box with hemp twine...

The inside of the card...

I LOVE this little chick. I'm not sure what SU! set he's from... I borrowed him from a friend. Anyhow - here's the details:
Stamps: Chick from SU!, Mini Alphabet Set - Curlz- from The Little Classic Rubber Stamp, Antique Alphabet from Image Tree, and crazy alphabet (1179) from TAC.
Paper: White Cardstock from Walmart, SU! Summer Sun and Tempting Turquoise Cardstock, Patterned paper from the Dollar Store.
Ink: SU! Summer Sun, More Mustard, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie
Other: Marvy Giga Oval and Circle punches, page pebble oval sticker, hemp twine from Walmart

Baby Blessings

A baby card I made for my friend who had a baby girl a little over a month ago.

The baby stamps are SU! Baby Firsts, and I'm not sure what the name of the wheel is, but I'm sure it's similar. The sentiment is PSX, and the "it's a girl" at the bottom of the sentiment is from SU! So Many Sayings.

I used white cardstock from Walmart, and the wheel ink color I think is Pink Passion. The other colors are SU! Lavendar Lace, Pixie Pink, and Gable Green. I colored and doodled with the markers in the same colors.

Miscellaneous Cards from 2008 (5)

I love this little ladybug! I didn't like ladybugs for a while b/c they brought back bad memories of our house being INFESTED with them. However, I got all these ladybug stamps in stamp sets that I have, and thought I'd put them to use! Someone ELSE might like them, and I'm starting to like them again, too!

When I saw this Clickabella stamp and sentiment on someone else's blog, I just HAD to have it! I spend a lot of time keeping up with friends and family via e-mail, blogs, facebook, etc. I just think this stamp is ADORABLE!

This card was made for a Cupcake Friday challenge on Taylor's blog. Her sketch was of a 5"x5" card, but I did the normal size and then did the sketch on that. I paper pieced the cupcake, too.

Delight in Life Dutch card ~ My grandma is Dutch, and so my mom bought me the now retired SU! Netherlands set. I use it all the time for my grandma's cards, and she loves it!

OK - that's it for the past cards, except the ones that still remain on my camera! I'll get to those soon, but wanted to catch up first! :-) Hope you enjoyed my cards!

The first picture is a little decoration that we made at a stamping party. I thought it was super cute! The second picture is a sympathy card we made at that same party. It's not necessarily my normal style, but it's pretty. The next card is "Sending you a smile." The last one is "Thinking of you." This card is really bright and kind of busy, but it's so springy!

Still more to come...

Miscellaneous Cards from 2008 (1)

Since I have made so many cards, I have so little time to post all of them, it seems. I should just post them right away, and it wouldn't be a problem. But, since I haven't done that, I am just going to post a bunch of them, and leave out the details. If you want details on a specific card, just leave a comment and I'll edit the info in.

Cherish - I cased this card from a sample my SU! demonstrator received in a card swap. I just changed the colors from blues to pink/pomegranate. I think it's beautiful!

Priceless... another "cased" card, but I'm not sure where I got it. Again, my SU! demonstrator had it printed out from somewhere and I just copied it.
Delight in Life... this actually is my own! :-) LOL
Stay tuned for more cards...
