Princesses and Cowboys

I think I have noted before that I like the actual "stamping" part of stamping.  I love sitting down with stamps and lots of ink and seeing what happens!  Some people have a plan when they stamp that entails measuring and such, but I usually just grab whatever set I like and some paper scraps that are laying around and just get to it!

Yesterday evening I got the new Tim Holtz Distress Inks out and Polka Dot Basics and Guide Lines Grid paper from PTI, and just started mixing and matching colors.  I ended up with 2 fun dotty decorative papers, and decided to turn them into birthday cards...Eva and Claire always seem to have a birthday party every month, both for girls and boys.  So meet...

and Cowboy Cupcake

After stamping the dots, I then went back and coordinated the cupcake from Baby Button Bits, PTI, to match!  That Crystal Snow from Stampendous is some FUN STUFF!  Doesn't it look just like sugar, yummy!
