Finally, posting some new cards-lol

Finally, I'm posting some of the cards I've been promising-lol.

I wanted to do a kind of patriotic card but don't really have any patriotic stamps. So I tore some strips and punched some stars and presto - a flag, sort of. I used real red, whisper white, brilliant blue and yoyo yellow paper. The stars were punched with Su!'s large star punch. I wanted to punch out the insides of some with the small star punch but - I didn't have it at the time (i do now-lol). A couple of the stars are popped up with dimensionals.

The card below is a very simple, yet elegant card. My club loved it! I used pumpkin pie, apricot appeal and chocolate chip card stock, only orange and chocolate chip markers, eastern blooms and on your birthday stamp sets. It is a perfect combination of colors and layer, if I do say so myself - lol. We used the markers to color the stamps instead of ink pads. Just wish I could take pictures that do it justice.

The rest will have to wait until later. It's getting late. You dads out there - happy belated father's day. Hope you all got to do whatever you wanted to do on your day!

Type at you later.

Posting Tonight

I had planned to post some new pics this weekend but...couldn't find my flashdrive that I use until this morning. Soooooooooooooo I will be posting them tonight after DH has gone to bed.

Stay tuned! I hope you will think they were worth the wait-lol.
