Pink and tasty....

I wanted to revisit this it can be so versatile with the right stamp set...there are a lot of "line" stamp sets...and these tasty desserts come from the retired Hostess set "Birthday Bakery"..just a 2 color card, with a little bling!

Ad nauseum

As usual, once I find a nice layout, I have to try it with several's the same layout as the Sahara Sand daisy card, but with a holiday twist.  I stamped the cocktail 2x, trimming and popping up the main part of the glass...the holiday paper is retired from last year...I would have liked a skinny ribbon, but this was all I had that matched...

Fun in the Sun

My friend, Cheryl, invited my clan over for a fun day of swimming, so I wanted to send her a card to thank her....and what is better than a swimming themed card?  I got this layout from the demo magazine...and I used up some retired colors!

Thumped Leaves

I knew I wanted this stamp when I first laid eyes on it...but it's one of the stamps you have to keep using before you really LOVE it!  I thumped the background with a variety of fall colored markers (after stamping it in Old Olive)...markered up the bird and stamped him separately (and cut him out and popped with up with Dimensionals)   I wanted a rustic ribbon, but didn't have, so I pulled a few threads out of a piece of satin ribbon...and think I achieved the look I wanted!  Added a buckle and sentiment...background in stamped with the Woodgrain large background stamp (although I'm really wanting the woodgrain embossing folder!)

Naturals Ivory, Chocolate Chip
