I was paroosing the splitcoaststampers site quite a bit today. I read on someone else's blog how they are an 'equal opportunity stamper' or something like that and I liked that! That's ME! I am a Consultant with Close to my Heart BUT I'm not exclusive to. I'll buy a stamp from anyone if I like the stamp!! :) Before I'd even heard or knew about Close to my Heart I bought 95% of my stamps from Stampin'Up! so I have quite a few of their stamps too. One of the sets that I've had for quite some time and have NEVER used is Watercolor Garden. I've ALWAYS just LOVED this set. I even bought 'Twinkling H2O's a few years ago because I just KNEW they would work so beautifully together--haven't opened the Twinkling H2O's yet either!!! One day.........
Something else I found from looking around today, SplitCoastStampers and different blogs, was other ladies talking about a challenge they'd participated in where they got a stamp set out that they hadn't used in years and I thought...hmmmm, GOOD IDEA! SO, I pulled out 4 different SU sets that I had either NEVER used or hadn't used in a LONG time. So far I've only used Watercolor Garden and I'm getting sleepy already but I'm going to leave them out on my table and HOPE that MAYBE just maybe tomorrow I'll get to the others!
But, what did I do tonight?!
Well, here goes:
This first card was TOTALLY lifted from paperdoll stef on splitcoaststampers.
I used CTMH colors because that is what I have but the card idea is totally hers! I just LOVE it!!
I also used: Love Quotes (CTMH #1194)
LOVE that set!!!
Colors used: Buttercup, Sweet Leaf and Bamboo
Colors: Cranberry, Buttercup and Sweet Leaf
Love Quotes again, cranberry gingham ribbon (CTMH) and some gold foil stuff I had in one of my drawers. I've never used it before and thought what they heck! So there it is!! :)
AND Because of You (CTMH #D1153).
Colors used are: Smokey Plum, Hollyhock, Buttercup and Sweet Leaf.
You can't tell real well but I put prisma glitter on the smokey plum flowers. In person it looks really pretty. Then in the centers of the other flowers I put buttercup seed beads (My Accents) and white organdy ribbon (CTMH).
My daughter LOVES this card!
Ooops!-almost forgot to mention--I got the idea for this card from CKidd (splitcoaststampers again!)
and last but NOT least...................
Stamps: Watercolor Gardens (SU) & Love Quotes (CTMH)
Colors: Buttercup, Cranberry and NE Ivy
Papers: B&T from the Lets Get Together Paper Pack
Cranberry Gingham ribbon (CTMH)
Idea from: sf 9erfan (yep! you guessed it! splitcoaststampers-told you I spent quite a bit of time there today!!) :)
Well, I think I'm done for tonight!
Check back tomorrow and see what I'm working on then. I NEED to get some scrapbook pages done really. We'll see....
