Just Boots

I wanted to make another, somewhat, masculine card using Country Livin', but didn't want to use the truck. After looking at my embossing folders, this is what I came up with. I do like the boots, but my favorite part is the stamped trees behind the embossed trees.

If you haven't already tried it, this is a super-easy technique. Just stamp your image directly onto the embossing folder, then add your card stock and run it through your Big Shot!

Ink - Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede

Sitting Here In The Meadow

Has your summer been as crazy and busy as mine? Even when I've had the time to create, by the time the project was complete, I would forget to take a picture. Either the card was mailed, or the project delivered.

Any way, this is the first of two cards I have recently made. I mailed the second one before I took the required picture.

Ink -Bermuda Bay, Black StazOn, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi

Jar of Flowers

Summer has hit me hard -- in a good way. I have been so busy working during the week, and we have been playing on the weekends, I haven't had much time to spend playing with my stamps. Yes, summer is still here, but we don't have any travel plans until the end of the month! That means I more time to play with my stamps.

This is the first opportunity to stamp and the first card I've made in over a month. Ahhh, it's nice to have some time to relax and play.

Stamps - Jar of Love (141587)
Ink - Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Crumb cake, Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, So Saffron, Soft Sky

Blissful Dragonfly

Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I have an opportunity to be part of a facebook hop showing off our Stampin' Up! creations. The theme for this hop is "A Female Themed Card and Coordinating Tag." Considering Mother's Day is Sunday, and the hop begins on Saturday, this worked out very well for creating the card and tag (bookmark) to give to my mom.

Ink - Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Tip Top Taupe

Mountain Wonderland

I can't help myself, I love this stamp set. It probably has a lot to do with living in the mountains. Any way, I'm having more fun finding different cards to create using the set.

It's a Birthday Goose

I just finished making this card for one of my male family members. I was amazed at how easy it fell into place. I originally thought I was going to do another card using the plane from "Sky is the Limit," but this set caught my eye and I went for it. It's kind of hard to tell by this picture, but I did use the "Watercolor Wash" in the background.

Ink - Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Soft Suede
