A Stamping Kind of Day

When I first purchased my Cricut I swore that I would never buy stamps - I have a Cricut, who needs them, right?  Ha-ha-ha.  Four binders and eight stamp bins later, I find that I love stamps and markers almost as much as my Cricut although I don't use them nearly as often.  So, today I got out some stamps, embossing powder, Copics and inks that I've been wanting to use and just spent the day creating cards.

I used a new Hero Arts stamp and gold embossing powder on this first card.  I think it has a very elegant look with the pearls and organdy ribbon.

This stamp is by Judy Kins.  I used a pale sand to stamp the image on the background paper and then the brighter colors for the main image.  I also added a little distressed inking on the corners and edges of all the mats.

I colored the cattails with my Copics and matted the card with my favorite Bo Bunny Dot paper.  I picked up this stamp set when I went to my first Scrapbook Expo in 2009 and hadn't used it yet.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
Be sure to stop by on Monday when I can share some exciting news.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Larelyn

They are all beautiful! I always said I wouldn't be a stamper or a cardmaker. HA! although my first love is scrapbooking, I do love my stamps and cardmaking too.
