Fun Friday

DSCF4055

I snuck in some fun stamping time this morning before the rest of the day calls me--the yard needs mowed, and other chores need taken care of---you know how it is! I had won a Taylored Expressions Birthday Boy kit from Laura Frederickson--and today was the first chance I had to play with it! What fun! All the products are color-coordinated--ribbon, paper, DP, brads & glitter! I did a little assembly line and made several cards; so easy when all your products are right there in the kit! I am not sure this is still available, but you can at least look at the DP here.

I inked up the little snail from My Cute Stamps' Little Forest Friends and colored him with some Copics and SU markers. I couldn't resist adding some polka dots from PTI's Polka Dot Basics, and then some sentiments: one from Verve's Petals and Stems, another from MFT's Essential Sentiments. Here is the inside of one of them:DSCF4056 Of course, I had to use that perfectly matched ribbon and some yummy Waterfall Glitter! I used Brilliant Blue and Tempting Turquoise SU ink.





Last night, my SIL needed a wedding card, so I got out a set that was severely neglected, Fun & Fast Notes:

I quick snapped a photo from my kitchen table before she left! Image was stamped in Stazon and colored with reinkers and an aquapainter; it was then die cut with a Nestability Labels One die. I punched the border with a MS punch, embossed it with a CB Just My Type border and added some pearls and ribbon from Michaels. I used Shimmery White for the panel, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette for the card.

Thanks for visiting today and have a great Friday! I may be back, who knows!

  2. Great cards! Love the fun image on the first and the soft subtle colors of the 2nd. I'm glad you snapped the photo - I often make cards for folks in a hurry and totally forget to photograph them until it's too late! LOL
    Happy Friday :)
