Always card

This is definitely one of my favorite SU sets right now. I just love this bird! I've made a few cards with it but I wanted to make one using the "Always" sentiment so here's that one.

I made this card more masculine colors, using not quite navy and bashful blue with creamy caramel. It's a really simple card. I just stamped the caramel paper with the branch image, then stamped with bird with not quite navy, and mounted him on the bashful blue card stock. I did paper piercing on two sides of the image and stamped the sentiment below. If you can't read it it says "you mean everything to me." It's a simple card, I didn't even use ribbon, but I love how it turned out!

stamps: Always
ink: Not quite navy, creamy caramel
paper: whisper white, creamy caramel, bashful blue, not quite navy
other: paper piercing, circle punches

Happy Thoughts!

How is it Wednesday already? I can't believe how fast the days fly by, with so little time to stamp!

Here is a card I recently made with the stamp set Hey Chicky from C.C. Designs. This set is super cute. I just love how cute and simple her designs are.

All card stock is from SU. I used Gable Green for the card base. Then put a piece of tempting turquoise through my cuttlebug to create the embossed dots on the left. I stamped the chicky on white and colored him with copic markers. I then framed that image with apricot appeal card stock and taken with teal card stock. For the sentiment I used the stamp from Think Happy Thoughts (AGAIN, I know) and put a cute brad in the center from Making Memories. This is an appropriate card for today since it's rainy and I'm tired and could use some happy, sunny thoughts!

stamps:Hey chicky from C.C. Designs, Think Happy Thoughts from SU.
ink: black, copic markers
paper: Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise, Taken with Teal, Apricot Appeal, white.
other: SU scallop and circle punches, Ribbon from target dollar spot, brad from Making memories.

Sleepy bear card

The house mouse stamp company now has these super cute bears stamps called Gruffies. I wanted to order some online but then found a couple at my local Hobby Lobby store and they were on sale! Who could resist, right?

I made this card using the Bedtime Story stamp. I made the embossed background using a circle template on my cuttlebug. Then I colored him with copics and framed him with Taken with Teal and pumpkin pie card stock. For the sentiment I used happy thoughts stamp from the
Think Happy Thoughts stamp set from SU. I punched it out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and framed it with a scallop circle punched out of tempting turquoise. For the center of the shape I used a felt flower from SU and a cute little flower brad from Making memories.

stamps: Gruffies bear stamp from House Mouse, Think Happy Thoughts from SU
ink: Black, tempting turqouise
paper: Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise, taken with teal, whisper white.
other: Scallop and circle punches, felt flowers, flower brad, ribbon, cuttlebug
