Hoot, Hoot, Hooray!

Love these owls from Pink Cat Studio. My daughter Jenne and I made these two cards today using 1 of their stamps. Jenne, did the one in pink using SU Pixie Pink paper and SU yo yo yellow. Inside the sentiment is " You're 1 today!" My card is done in SU Real Red and Creamy Caramel. We both used crystal effects on the balloon, beak, and dots on the hat. We cuttlebugged both with the HB embossing plate.

A New Stamp-Dandie Trio

Those of you who know me, know that I am not buying anymore stamps! LOL!! Well, I just couldn't resist this one from Stampendous called DandieTrio. I saw a card made with it in a recent card magazine and just had to have the stamp. I see possibilities as endless for this stamp which is why I can justify buying it!! This first card is the one I saw in a magazine and except for using different papers and a saying it is very close to the original. The other 2 are my own. Can you just see all the possibilities with card. I will stray away from the browns and blues and get creative with other ideas so stay tuned. I also just adore MS's butterfly punch. The second card lifts up from the piece hanging down. Each of these flowers I have stickled with cinnamon in the centers.

Gotta Love Fluffies!

I have a few of these "fluffie" stamps from Stampendous. They are just so darn cute. I've been thinking about pulling out some stamps that have been "lost in the shuffle"(aka deep chasms of the craft room) and using them again. This is a start. It may be hard to tell but I paper pieced the balloon and layers of cake. The stars on the candles and the cirlces on the left are teeny teeny rhinestones from Taylored Expressions. Hard to see but these are pink rhinestones. The striped paper is from Hobby Lobby. I cut out the large scallop circle using Nestabilities from the striped paper and then added fluffies on the white scallop inside it on the top of the card.
