Sweet Fun



Time for some fun with the new Waltzingmouse and Papertrey Ink stamps that came in the mail recently!  Used PTI's new Garden Variety stamps and dies, Fruit Fusion: Melon stamps and dies, and sentiments from Friendship Jar Fillers.  Used the new Gingham & Co. set from Waltzingmouse Stamps and Background Basics: Gingham (A girl can never have enough gingham stamps!!) to make the background patterns.  This card started out for AmberDawn's VSN challenge at Splitcoastampers...to use 3 R's on your card.  I got those:  ribbon, rhinestones, and red...but I went WAY over the 45-minute time limit set for the challenge!

Forgot to post this one...for Beate's VSN challenge last night...to use the colors Aqua, Light Green, and Kraft on a card, with a dessert option of yellow.  Looks like I ate most of the dessert and skimped on the kraft (I only used a light brown ink on the sentiment)!


Used Papertrey Ink's Tag It #3, Tiny Tags, and the Vineyard Impression Plate at the top.  Then for the bottom, I used Vintage Cream cardstock and the Guide Lines Grid Impression Plate, then stamped a daisy and pattern from Quilter's Sampler Additions.  A glaze pen made all the difference on this one (used it on both the image circle and on the quilt).  See....

Stamping is fun!  If only there were more hours in the day!

Mmm Hmmm, I HEAR ya, Kelly on that 45 min time limit. I bet you could reproduce this in less than 45, but it is coming up with all the patterns, colors, placements, embellishments, ORIGINALLY that takes that "whack load" of time. What a beauty that came "hot off the press".

So you ate up all the dessert?!! Well you did leave a morsel for us to feast on in this springy beauty. I just came from a blog that had pasted little sugared pansies and violets onto shortbread cookies. All this talk about dessert makes me want to head upstairs for one of those orange brownies that didn't get eaten up last night (I got the recipe from Andrea-blondpollock, a few Springfests ago and I have made and doled out 3-9X13 pans full over the past week and a half!!! Happy day, Kelly--may you find much time and inspiration to stamp.

A late visit but wanted to say how much I love these cards too! All the gingham on the watermelon card looks fantastic. I didn't order this set but know I will be needing plaid watermelon--so cool! And every detail on the second card is SO sweet. The quilt design and the buttons are wonderful--actually everything looks just perfect!
