Cards, cards, cards!!!

Here are a few cards I’ve made over the past week or so. I have come to the realization that I do not have enough “masculine” stamp sets!!! I had a hard time coming up with cards for Father’s Day for my husband, my dad, and my brother-in-law. I did what I could with what I had! I’m hoping like crazy that the new catalog (which will hopefully be in my hot little hands by the middle or end of next week) will have plenty of great “manly” stamps to choose from 🙂

Here’s the birthday card I made for my dad:

Birthday Voila!

Stamps: Voila
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, Close to Cocoa, Barely Banana
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red
Accessories: Large and Small Tag punch, Gingham ribbon

And the Father’s Day card I made for my dad (his birthday was the day AFTER Father’s Day):

Father’s Day Classic Convertibles

Stamps: Classic Convertibles, Canvas BG, All-Year II
Ink: Brilliant Blue
Paper: Brilliant blue, Whisper White
Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aqua painter, pewter brads

I’ll have pics of the cards I made for the last card swap of the month and also my husband’s Father’s Day card posted soon!!!

I can’t wait!!!

I know July 1st isn’t that far off. I know I’m an adult and really should be able to gain control of myself. But I can’t!!! I can’t wait until July 1st! The new Stampin’ Up catalog comes out and it is going to rock my socks!! I’m posting a picture of the new In Color inks. I got my preview order yesterday from Mr. Brown and am loving the new colors. Oh, and there’s a card I made with the brand spanking new Baroque Motifs stamp set which will be available in the new catalog. It is a must have set! And to think I almost didn’t order it. Pshaw!

Blog Candy 10,000 hits

Wooo Hooo!!!! 10,000 hits!

Okay, so I am a little surprised that I hit 10,000 already and haven’t gotten all of the blog candy together. I promise that I will work on that tonight, get a picture up, and will draw a winner on Wednesday, June 13th. I picked that day because I should probably have my Stampin’ Up Fall/Winter preview order items by then. I did not order as soon as we could (June 1st) because I wanted to wait and see what everyone was coming up with on Splitcoast. There’s a set I was NOT going to order, but as soon as I saw what the very talented stampers on SCS did with it, I had to have it. I’m very glad I waited!!!!

Can you say….. Blog Candy???

I am just a little over 100 hits away from 10,000 and am in the process of putting together some fabulous blog candy. It will be hard to beat my 5,000 hits giveaway, but I’m sure I’m up to the challenge! Let’s just say it involves some rubber stamps, some foam stamps, some clear stamps, and some other goodies. Stay tuned………
