New Stamps

I received some new stamps in the mail earlier in the week.  Two of the sets I ordered were "A Little Argyle" and "Enjoy the Ride" both from Papertrey Ink.  Enjoy the Ride also had a die available that cuts the little car out perfectly.  This has be one of the best ideas in stamping in years.  Stamps and dies that match/coordinate.  Just brilliant!  I was playing around and thought I'd make this little card to see how it all worked.  The cardstock is Kraft, Chocolate and Terra Cotta Tile all from Papertrey Ink.  The ink is Terra Cotta Tile and Chocolate and the ribbon is also Terra Cotta Tile.  I can see using this little car for many cute cards to come.
Thanks for taking a peek and letting me know what you think.

Papertrey Princess Challenge - Think Spring

This time it was BethieJ's turn to post the challenge.  Here is what she posted "Think Spring..Think can be anything you want it to be..a new color combo..a new technique you haave wanted to try, NEW supplies..ANYTHING.." 

Well right after I read the challenge I was trying to think of something to make.  I went outside a little while later and was greeted with these lovely flowers as a sign of spring.  Inspiration Struck!
I have been wanting to use this color combination for some time and thought that it was NEW to me.  I had also purchased the stamp set "Wishing You..." by Papertrey Ink a while ago as well.  But, it was still NEW and in the package.  What better set to use for this challenge!  Here is my take on this challenge. 

Thanks for taking a peek and letting me know what you think.

Baby Shower Gift Card Holder

One of the girls I work with is having a baby at the end of the month.  Last week we had a little baby shower, pot luck luncheon for her.  In addition to a little sleeper, I gave her a gift card to Target.  Gotta love Target for baby and kid stuff.

I made the gift card holder using one of my favorite templates from My Timeless Templates from Papertrey Ink.  The tag was made using stamps from Daily Designs from Papertrey Ink.  I love this set as it is so versitile.  It's great for building and layering and it can be used for almost any occasion.

Papertrey Princesses Challenge - Neutrals Only!

It is my turn to present the challenge this time.  For this challenge you are to use Neutrals only.  You may use Kraft, Cream, White and Black.  Or any combination of those.  No colors this time around.  The other day I was playing around with stamping on an envelope and just stamped with some black ink on a kraft envelope.  I really liked the way it looked so this challenge was born.

Here are two views of the card I made.  I used the Year in Flowers Violet stamp by Papertrey Ink.    I was unsure about this stamp when I bought it, thinking I have enough flower sets.  However, it has quickly become a favorite. The sentiment is from the Wishing You set.  Since my sister's birthday is this month, I knew I would be needing a card so I decided to make it a birthday card.  But I think this could make a nice thank you card or even a sympathy card.

I hope you like this challenge and I can't wait to see what you make.  Thanks for taking a peek and let me know what you think.
