stamp night......

I had a few friends over to stamp tonight, and I made a couple of pocket cards to give them an idea to start with. Here's what I came up with...theirs were similiar to the non-antiqued one. Fun times!

The 2-step flower set is one of my designs from Biblical Impressions, stamped in Adirondack Currant and Pesto (they have such yummy color names!) I also stamped CHF's Paisley Backgrounder over the top (stamped off 1x first). The flowers in the corner are from the SU Bold Heart and Flowers set...I think this may be the first time I've actually used the set...someone gave it to me before we moved and I always forget that I have it. "Terima Kasih" means "Thank You", and that's a self-designed stamp that I had pressed by Ready Stamps - they will press a full sheet of rubber for you for $32. Great service, and a great cause! Check them out if you're interested in producing a few of your own doodles. The second card...same SU set for the rose vines. I directly applied Bisque chalk ink to white cardstock, then some cocoa brown and Adirondack Espresso around the eges. The crackle stamp is from TAC (oh, BTW, they have their Spring Supplement out now!) "Thinking of You" is from Art Impressions...I love the size and the font of that stamp. :)

One more thing....I must say that I'm rather impressed with myself for designing my first digital paper today! No, I'm not going to try to market it or anything, goodness knows I have more on my plate than I can handle already...but I thought it came out pretty cool! I started with a single image of a pansy (I needed some pansy paper to go with a card idea that popped into my head when I woke up this morning...)...I cropped out the center of the flower and turned and repeated it randomly on the page. After that was done I played with a few photo features, and this was one of the results! I'm using Photo Impact 12, which is from ... they have a 30 day free trial if you're interested in checking it out too. I'm still learning by trial and error, but it's fun. :)


  1. How funny that we both worked on pocket cards! Great Minds Think Alike! Very nice!

  2. Your pocket card looks gorgeous! I love the colors, the background you used and the placement of the flowers. Perfect!
