Stamping Catch Up

On Tuesday one of my best friends came over and we went out for a quick lunch - at a new place we may not go back to...nice food but quite noisy.... and then we came home and had a fun stamping time together - and even had some new goodies to play with! We had a lovely time and here is some of what we made.

My friend Bernie, made this very pretty card using her Flower Shop set and some Gingham Washi tape. She punched the flower centres with the 1/2" circle punch and layered them with dimensionals. Isn't it so pretty? The greating is from Curly Cute.

And I concentrated on some male themed cards in preparation for a "Stamp & Chat" this Friday night. Both are CASED from another SU demo, Justin Krieger. The first card I didn't change a thing...
I love that whilst there is the element of some grunge it is basically a clean card with little embellishment. I did use Stamp-a -ma-jig to line up the tyre marks which are stamped on a piece of white card stock and then cut out. the greeting is embossed with white EP and cut out with my new oval Framelits - in fact everything used here needed a packet opened! ( such fun too!) The Rev Up the Fun stamp set is not actually mine - it belongs to another good friend who is very kind to let me borrow it :-)

Card stock: Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Pacific Point
Ink: Pacific Point, Smoky Slate, Black Stazon, Versamark
Stamps: Rev Up the Fun, Gorgeous Grunge, Positively Chevron
Accessories: Big Shot, Oval Framelits, White EP, Corner rounder Punch

The next card is also one of Justin's that I added some bling to:
And yes, I really AM a fan of blue! I tried this in the traditional red and green for Christmas but didn't really like it as much. This is a new Single Stamp called Wonderful Blessing and it is beautiful! Its lovely that it has an image and a greeting all in the same stamp!! It will make for quick and easy Christmas cards:-) 
 I added a Rhinestone to the star and the two navy brads in addition to Justin's original design - I still have a drawer of retired brads - these are from the Earth Elements. The doily is sponged with Midnight Muse ink and I love the new Hesham ribbon!

Card stock: Soft Suede, River Rock, Very Vanilla
Ink: Midnight Muse
Stamp: Wonderful Blessing
Accessories: Big Shot, Circle Framelits, hesham ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Not Quite Navy brads (retired)

And of course the day is not over until the two dog friends have a play....this time we paid a short visit to Monty at his home. The friends had a good romp and then just lay chewing on sticks together ("sticking" together LOL!) enjoying each others company.
Happy stamping until next time,



  1. You did a wonderful job! Thank you so much for letting me know that you enjoyed my cards! I'm so glad that I stopped by to see the rest of your work... Love it!!
