I then made this pocket card. I used my CTMH Friendship Blessings stamp set. On the inside, I don't know where I got this sentiment stamp. I used my Cuttlebug flower dies to cover up a smudge and I used my SU punch.
Don't you just love these colors.
Don't forget. There is still time to enter the BLOG CANDY! See two posts below for details. Thanks for looking!

All you have to do to win is to leave me a comment on this post (1 comment per person please!) what your favorite designer paper is! I love paper and would love to expand my horizons. You have until midnight Tuesday, July 24 to leave a comment and I will use the random number generator thingy to pick a number and post a winner on Wednesday, July 25.
Here is a card that I made to use up some notecards that I had. Yep, my goal is to use up what I have because it really is hard to justify buying more when I have so much stuff lying around! I used a retired wood bee stamp set from CTMH, my cuttlebug embossing folder and sunny yellow and black for the colors.

I used my trusty Friendship Blessings stamp set. The colors are Amethyst, Crystal Blue and Sweet Leaf.
I've been so busy I didn't tell you all what I did last weekend. First, I went to a Stampin' Up garage sale. I actually found out about it on the one of many blogs that I read every day. It was only 15 minutes from my house. I bought a ton of stuff including some retired paper and scrapbooking stuff so very cool.
Then I went to the Rubber Stamp Convention in Carson. I was kind of disappointed. It seemed really small this year. The vendors that I usually like to visit weren't there this time. I don't know if the Internet has cut into their business and companies/vendors don't see a need to do little conventions anymore or if scrapbooking has taken over and rubber stamping is now a secondary market...all I can say is that I've been going for 10 years and this was the smallest and dinkiest convention yet!
Anyway, as usual thanks for checking me out.

I used my tiny amuse ornament stamp, also part of the blog candy for this simple card. I used my Cricut and Mini Mongrams cartridge to make the scalloped circles. This is the last of the simple cards that I had time to make. Pin It Now!
Both stamps are a muse and the paper is CTMH. Pin It Now!

Not to be outdone - I made another card using the same color scheme but this time with all CTMH products. The stamp set is All My love and the paper is More to Adore.

I did have some time to participate in a color challenge at CTMH Friends a Yahoo group. The colors to use were Dutch Blue, Vineyard Berry and Sunflower. I think that this is the first time that I've actually used my Sunflower ink pad. Anyway, this is what I came up with.
I only used the colors in the challenge and the stamp set Friendship Blessings. One of the commenters asked what my favorite CTMH stamp set is and right now this one is it. I only just really discovered it and have found that no matter what I do with it, my cards always look beautiful. As always thanks for looking! Pin It Now!

I received my lovely Flourishes Stamp set - it was blog candy! I created this card with it and sent it as a RAK. I colored in some of the swirls with cranberry twinkling h2o's and tied an organdy black ribbon.
I then stamped the flourishes in silver encore as a background. I embossed in white on vellum this cake stamp. I colored in the back with my sakura pens. I used a retired wood mounted wedding stamp set. I embossed the sentiment in silver. The picture looks like the ribbon and cardstock backing I used are in peach but it's actually blush and like a shade of pink.
The background I again stamped in silver encore. I then stamped the same cake stamp on white cardstock and colored in the image using my sakura glaze pens. I used the colors green and red. I used my cricut to create the mat for the cake in cranberry. I tied it off with a red ribbon and overlaid vellum. I also embossed in silver the sentiment. The picture did not come out very well, apparently vellum is too shiny or something. In person this card is really gorgeous and vibrant. Out of the three this one came out very nice!

My baby started hamming it up for the camera and I've been taking pictures of him non-stop. Everytime the red light flashes on my digital camera, he poses and smiles big!Isn't he gorgeous?
Anyway, I was talking about recreating the SU stamp camp stuff I made. Well we made a small purse that houses 3x3 cards. I didn't take a picture of the SU one because I didn't finish it. Here is my version using the Promise of Spring stamp set and paper pack:
A couple of things to note when making the purse out of our paper, it's very lightweight and is not as sturdy as some of the SU designer paper. On the SU purse, the demonstrator had us use velcro to keep it closed but I think that it would rip when opened if I used it here so I I had to be creative and used a brad and this whatamacallit, can't recall what it's called. I'm going to try and make another one but use regular cardstock and decorate it with our patterned paper instead.
These are the cards that I made to go inside. It took forever because it was like designing 6 cards! I think they came out cute. And since I already had this stuff out, I made a 6x6 card. I think that I'll give it to my Grandma for her birthday next month.
Thanks for looking. Hope you all have a Happy 4th!
