I really stamped!

Just a couple of cards that I made over the Christmas holidays. Was nice to get a chance to sit at the scrap table and make something. I don't know about you, but it sure gives me a good feeling. :)

For this card I wanted to use the darker gray color that SU! has put out in the last new catalog. I wanted to go with something elegant, although, I'm not sure if I accomplished that. I used the silver encore ink to give it some real shine. :)

This was for a sketch challenge over at Splitcoast, and my proportions got a little off. But with a little tweaking - all is well. I used a color combo out of the new Spring-Summer catalog, which, btw - I'm waiting on pins and needles to get - and it hasn't even shipped yet?!?!?! (I'm a sad case indeed...)

The weather around here has been crazy. From 17* a few nights ago, to nearing 70-ish today, my head feels like it is in a blender. My goal is to stamp a few things, and take it easy. I really wasn't prepared to go to school thursday and friday - but we made it. The kids weren't really ready either.

Have yourself a good day. I'm off to stamp a bit! ;)


Happy New Year!

Wow! It is 2008! Sorry for the silence on my end. Trying to get a few things done, and Christmas with first graders NEVER has a dull moment. I've been trying to get rested before we go back to school Thursday. (which I think just a week and a 1/2 is too short...)

I haven't been at my stamp table quite as much as I'd like, but believe it or not - I've whipped out a few things! Exciting huh?!

The first that I want to show you is this great pennant banner that I made based on a tutorial over at Splitcoast. There's not any stamping, but I had a lot of fun making it. It really is very simple.

Here is a close-up of one of the "E"s. I don't think the camera shows all the glitter very well.

I've got to run, but I'll be back shortly. :)
