Weekend Stamping



Hello everyone...hope you had a great weekend!!! We went to Jonestown, Texas to see our eldest son and his family on Saturday and then went to see our youngest son and his family this evening...sure was good to see our grandkiddos!!! They grow up way too fast!!! Anyway....


I did a little stamping today. The TLC challenge on Splitcoast is a fun one...to use something on our card that we wouldn't normally use and to make it a different shape other than an A2 or square shape. Can you guess with the item is I added that I wouldn't normally use on a card??? The background was made with a Pamper pull up that my DGD left here the last time she came to visit!! I took it apart and used the pretty scallop and heart section, attached it to a piece of white cardstock, cut it out with a round nestie, and attached it to the Chocolate Chip round scallop shaped card base. The sweet little Rubbernecker Bear in Carriage image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics. The sentiement, also from Rubbernecker called Greater Gift Text, was stamped, punched out with a tag punch, mounted on a Chocolate Chip matt, and attached with dimensionals. The wrinkled seam binding, button, and brown twine finish it off.
This is also for the Dream Valley Challenge to make something for a new beginning.

The Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast today featured Neva (n5stamper)!! I am just thrilled to see Neva in the spotlight today...She is such a wonderful person and fabulous stamper....every card in her gallery is gorgeous!! I finally decided to case her Thoughts and Prayers card. I kept the same layout and colors but changed them up a bit. I changed the stamps to Rubbernecker's French Script Background, Floral silhouettes set #2 for the sentiment, and the Weeds #497-14 stamp. The pearl butterfly and flourish finishes it off. Congrats, Neva, and enjoy your special day!!!

Too darn funny! I just thought it was dp, until I took a closer look, love this! The second card looks a bit fall-ish and is gorgeous.

Oh Joan, you really can make a card with anything, can't you? I love that you used a bit of nappy, how resourceful of you! Fabulous card, and being a new baby card it fits the bill over at Dream Valley challenges if you want to enter it.

Love the cased card, I think that is simply wonderful, such a great colour scheme too. CoB
