Kind of Eclectic Cards

If you don't own this stamp set you are missing out. I have talked about some different sets that are versatile. I would say, hands down, this is another one.
If you haven't tried out the new set of "In Color" stamp pads, you need to. I love the colors. I believe, it is because I tend to really like the rich, dark colors. That is why I really gravitate to the Regals collection.

Stampin' Up! supplies needed to create this card.
Cardstock: Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, and Whisper White
Classic Ink: Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, and Hello Honey
Stamp Set: Kind of Eclectic
Tools: Elegant Butterfly and Stamp-a-ma-jig 
Accessories: Blackberry Bliss 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon

Here is another card using the same stamp set with a different lay out.
Pretty much it uses all of the same materials as the card above, except for the following:
Cardstock: Tangelo Twist and Lost Lagoon; Accessories: Rhinestone Basic Jewels

I intentionally left off the sayings on these cards. There are times you need a card for something quick and these can be made to say almost anything you want. The top card was used for a sympathy card. The bottom card has not been used yet. I will put a saying on it when I need it.

Thanks for looking.
Now go-n-stamp!!

Another Great Year Birthday Card

I am sharing with you a card that is pretty easy to make. The most detail is the cutting around the "Happy Birthday to You" saying. The Work of Art stamp set makes such really cool backgrounds. I love how easy it is to use and create with.

Stampin' Up supplies used for this card.
Cardstock: Lost Lagoon and Whisper White
Classic Ink: Lost Lagoon and Pool Party
Stamp Sets: Work of Art and Another Great Year
Tools: Stampin' Trimmer and Paper Snips

This card could be created in a variety of colors! I chose these colors because I sent this one to my son-in-law.
Tell me what you think by leaving a comment. Thanks for visiting!
Now go-n-stamp!!

Something for Baby Card

I don't know about you, but I LOVE babies! I know quite a few young women that are going to have babies in the near future. One of them is my daughter.
I created this card as a sample. To be honest, I need to create some more, which I will, just not yet. The one lady I worked with is considering having me make some for her when her baby is born. Plus, I need to have some made up for when I need one.

These are the Stampin' Up! supplies needed to create this card.
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Whisper White
Stamp Set: Something for Baby
Tools: Big Shot, Baby's First Framelits, Banners Framelits, and the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder

This card is for a little boy, but could be easily changed by using Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder, and So Saffron. I am sure you could come up with a few other colors besides those.
Thanks for looking!

Now go-n-stamp!!

Blended Bloom Pin

Even though I myself am not a jewelry person, I thought this Blended Bloom flower stamp would make a pretty pin. There is a ton of things that can be done to this flower stamp to make it even different than what I have come up with. You could add more layers. You could use a fancy brad in the middle of the flower. The colors you choose could be endless. Maybe, even more than what I just suggested could be done. You may be seeing more of these in the near future. Just because I think it would be fun to play with.

I tried to capture the layers in the picture above. I can see them, so you should be able to, as well.

Stamping supplies needed to create this pin.
Stamp: Blended Bloom
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Tuxedo Black Momento
Stampin' Blendabilities: Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight sets
Accessory: Pin Back

An optional idea is to create your own box. I have created one, but I did not take a picture of it. You can use your Simply Scored Scoring Tool or the new Gift Box Punch Board in the Holiday Catalog to create it.
The only other thing I did was cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock into a square, put 2 holes in it, and attached the pin through it. I think this would be a great craft fair idea!
Please, tell me what you think.
