I love new stamps and I especially love free new stamps!!!!! Stampin' Up! sent all demonstrators a brand new stamp set as a thank you for all of our hard work and a token of their appreciation. The set is called Time Well Spent and is an upcoming Hostess Level 3 set. I love the doodley style of this set! This is a very fun set to color in and I can't wait to play with it a little more. The card base is Old Olive and I stamped the images on Kraft cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. This is matted on Real Red and then put on the card base. I colored them in with Real Red, Only Orange, Summer Sun, and Old Olive markers. I stamped the bigger flower on Summer Sun cardstock with Only Orange and punched out the center with a 1/2 inch circle punch and then used one of my Pewter Build-a-Brads to make the center of the flower. I also punched out three holes and inserted pewter brads in them on the bottom of the card. In hindsight, I should have used Antique Brass in this color scheme but I only have Pewter Build-A-Brads. I may have to rectify this in the not too far future :-)
I also got some more birthday RAKs.
I absolutely love all of them--in case you didn't know, I sorta have a weakness for Regal Rose and it's gorgeous with Certainly Celery. I love this image--it's so delicate and pretty! This one is from one of the SCS Birthday Babes and her user name is Sherrie.
The next one has the sparkliest cupcake ever! I love this card and will totally have to case this layout and idea since it's perfect for both boys and girls! Thanks Kris aka Stamping in Kansas!
Finally, I've got one of my favorite color combos--pink and orange!!! This one is from exfib at SCS and I swear, this is a card I could've made on my own. The color combo, layouts, and embellishments are sooooooooooo me!!!! Carol and I must be separated at stampin birth!
I'm gonna try to get more stampin in tomorrow but don't know how successful I'll be--we've got a cousin over for a sleepover and I have a much needed hair appt in the afternoon :-)
Thanks for visiting!
