I've been wanting to get on and post here but it seems like something is always keeping me from getting here! Anyway, here I am. I've been playing with my stamps today when I really should be cleaning or something but what kind of fun would that be?! Hey, I did wash some clothes and that should count for something, right? On to the important stuff!

I used sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog for both of these cards.

The first card I used the Oval All and Soft Summer sets. Card stock is Basic Gray, Mellow Moss, So Saffron and Whisper White. The Designer paper is Walk In The Park also from the mini. I used Basic Gray pad and So Saffron & Mellow Moss markers and some dazzling diamond glitter on the center of the flowers and on the oval piece. Not sure if that will show too well here. The ribbon is Mellow Moss Taffeta. I also used the Scallop Oval punch, love this punch!

For the second card I used the Very Versatile Set and En Francais background stamp. Card stock is Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White. The Designer paper is Urban Garden. Punches: Word Window, Small Oval, Scallop edge. Ribbon is Satin Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla. White Brads are from the 5/16 Nuetrals assortment. I used the white gel pen to make the dots on the scallop edge. Ink colors are Kiwi Kiss, Night of Navy and Baja Breeze. I have already cut paper to make more of this one for a swap I'm participating in. This is the first card I've made with this set and I struggled a little as I mostly bought this set for the verses but was detirmined to use the image stamp! So.....after a little experimenting I actually like how this turned out.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
