Baking up some Birthday Wishes...

New Changito clear and cling rubber stamps are in with lots of new designs! This is the clear set called Changito Baker.
Inside verse reads: Baked up a batch of Birthday Wishes for you!
The glittery background paper is from the Nana's Kitchen mat stack, a very cute pack of papers.

If you look closely at the apron, you can see how I stamped it on gingham paper and trimmed around it to look like the apron is actually checkered. The cake was cut out and popped up with some foam dots.

Play Day

I have been really busy today getting things ready for the crop on Saturday. I decided to take a short break from the hustle & bustle and make a card with some new stamps from Daisy Bucket Designs.


I love anything with little monsters on it. I thought this would make a perfect card for one of my nephew's birthdays. The photo below is the inside of the card, the 2 stamps come together in a pack. I used the Nestabilities set called Labels 2 for the die cut/embossed shape.

New cling rubber stamps are in!

New Changito images and sayings have started to arrive! Cling rubber is the best of both worlds... The same stamping feel of crisp cushioned rubber images with the easy storage of clear stamps. These cling stamps mount to clear blocks just like clear acrylic stamps do.

If you look closely, you can see his fuzzy bunny slippers that I used white flocking on.

Cuttlebug Butterflies

I just ordered in this new butterfly set from Cuttlebug. Well, it isn't new... just new to the store. It cuts out the butterfly and then has 4 embossing templates to add texture to the butterfly.

I cut out the circle and the scallop with Nestabilities and embossed the background with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.
Here is the sketch challenge I found online that I used to make the card with. Try one!

In the Woods #2

This card is somewhat similar to one I posted last month. It uses another stamp from the "In the Woods" line from Stampendous. I inked the stamp with markers and layered it on a rectangle I cut out from the long rectangle Nestabilities set. I also added a few mossy colored dew drops for some dimension.

Here is the inside of the card. I am getting better about decorating the inside too...
