Sentimental Journey

I really like this stamp set, it's great for vacation scrapbook pages and I especially love the color combination SU used for the matching Designer paper which I scraplifted for this card. The only trick to this card is that I used crumb cake ink on crumb cake paper to stamp journey diagonally across the upper left hand corner, I then went back in with blue and stamped over one of the original images to make it pop. I sprayed the whole card with smooch spritz before I added the pumpkin pie boat tag to the lower right hand corner.

Artistic Etchings - Cherry Cobbler

Here is another card we did at stamp club this month using the Artistic Etchings set. I love this new color Cherry Cobbler it is such a rich red. We tore out a page from an antique book I picked up at a yard sale and crumpled it up, we then ran a gold stamp pad lightly across the raised ridges, stamped randomly around the page, added a basic rhinestone to the crown for a little bling and a ribbon to finish it off. I think every girl in stamp club ended up getting this set.

Artistic Daffodil

I combined all of my favorite things for this card. First of all the color combination I love yellow (this is the new "daffodil") and black. I also used two of my favorites from the new catalog, the Newsprint Designer Series Paper and the Artistic Etchings stamp set. Both of which are so versatile. I made this card for my Mother-in-Law and had to break out the sentiment from a retired set (Best Blossoms) because it expresses exactly how I feel about her.
