This is another of my projects created for UStamp with Dawn and Friends Cool Moves 2012. This stamp set is just so much fun to work with and I had a great time creating these cards. The one on the right and also the one in the front are slider cards.
Come on over and join us if you would like more details, there are 40+ projects with full tutorials PDFs and Lots of pictures!
This is another page I did for my niece's scrapbook using the Serif Essentials Alphabet die and the Nursery Nest designer series paper.
I added a little pleated ribbon and a sneak peak fabric brad from the Summer Smooches collection.
Here is our new baby! We just picked her out last night and brought her home with us. She definitely has a good set of lungs :) The kids were out before it 7 am to play with her this morning and had a difficult time leaving for school.
I have another card for the Late Night Stampers texture challenge this week. On this one, I used the Perfect Details texturz plate, Perfect Polka Dots impresions folder and the Vintage Wallpaper impressions folder.
For the ribbon, I added sticky strip directly to the back of the ribbon and then added it to the card with some pleats.

My first project for UStamp with Dawn and Friends Cool Moves event posted yesterday so I am able to share it with you! The cool move in this set is a tunnel card and you can join us to see a whole lot more cool moves if you like by going to www.ustampwithdawnandfriends.com .
Our Late Night Stampers Challenge this week is Texture - and if you have followed my blog at all you will know I LOVE texture from my impressions folders :) so this won't be difficult at all!
For this card, I used the Vintage Wallpaper impressions folder on both the Baja Breeze strip that I cut with the Adorning accents edgelit and also the 3" circle.
As you will see on the last picture, the circle is cut through all the layers on the front of the card. I attached them all and then ran it through the Big Shot; embossed the piece I cut out and attached it to the inside. So the part of the circle you can't see that is attached to the inside of the card actually has 3 layers as well. Using all the scraps :)
A customer of mine ordered a couple anniversary cards and this is one that I made for her. It uses the Fresh Vintage stamp set along with the Everyday Elegance designer series paper from Sale-a-bration.
The stamp is a personalized one and the numbers are from the Alphabet Simple Numbers Die.

Another project I was working on at my retreat last weekend was some scrapbook pages of my niece, Greta, from about 7 years ago. The Sweet Shop specialty paper worked great for these pages of her 1st birthday.
I also used the Sweet Cake stamp set along with some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the top page. On the bottom one, I added some of the fun Summer Smooches fabric brads that you will be able to purchase as a sneak peek next month. I used them to hold up my bakers twine banner.

Today's card is another one using the Need for Speed stamp set and this time around I used the 4 wheeler. In an attempt to make it look like mudd splatters, I used the color spritzer tool and my Early Espresso marker, but it didn't quite give it the effect I was going for.
There is a strip of Real Red that I cut with the Tasteful Trim die running through the middle of the card and the designer series paper is a preview of one that will be in the new catalog coming out in June. It will be available to customers as a preview in April so be on the lookout!

There was a few pieces of Cheerful Treat designer series paper floating around my stamp table and I wanted to put them to use, so this is the result of one of the cards I made with it.
The base of the card is River Rock with some Wisteria Wonder on top of that and I threw in some Basic Gray, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White as well. The leaf image is from the Best Friend Forever stamp set and the sentiment comes from the Pursuit of Happiness. I added a little Wisteria Wonder bakers twine, a butterfly from the Beautiful Wings embosslit and some basic rhinestones to finish off the card.
Angie Juda had these adorable pouches on her blog the other day and I had to make up a couple of them. They have pockets on both sides for little candies or notes and are super easy to put together - you don't even need adhesive! There is a tutorial on her blog if you would like to make a few.
I used the Beau Chateau designer paper for mine and you might remember the image on the left from a card I posted earlier this week. As I usually do, I made a few of these images and kept them for other cards or project.
On the second one, I used the Upsy Daisy stamp set and stamped Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake over the top of each other.
Both pouches have some Victoria crochet trim ribbon at the top to hold the pouch together.

This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest (and apparently didn't pin so I don't know who designed it - so if it was you, let me know and I will give you credit!) and I added some different elements to it.
This is another quick and easy card using the Fresh Vintage stamp set from Sale-a-bration along with the Everyday Enchantment designer series paper, also from Sale-a-bration.
I used Soft Suede classic ink for all the stamping and the sentiment is from Sincere Salutations (I just love that set!). For the brad, I wrapped the ribbon around the Soft Suede and DSP layer three times and then tied a bow; then I opened up the brad a little and wrapped it around the ribbon before I pushed it through my hole and secured it.
Today I have a scrapbook page made with My Digital studio for you. Our Late Night Stampers theme this week is Easter projects so I thought I would do a page with some of last year's pictures.
I picked some fun bright colors and papers for this one, but it went together quickly. If you have been thinking about trying My Digital Studio, you now can try it for free for 30 days!
Once the 30-day free trial period is over, you can purchase the downloadable or disc version of the software to continue using it. You'll simply open up the trial version you already have on your computer, and will be prompted to enter the product registration key you received after purchasing the software. (You'll receive this key via e-mail if you purchase the downloadable version, and you'll find it along with your shipped software if you purchase the disc version.)
I put together a quick little card set using a 6 X 6 page protector as the card holder. The inspiration for the holder came from this site although I have seem them in other places and made a few before too.
The card holder has a little piece of velcro to hold it shut so the cards don't fall out.
I have another card for our Late Night Stampers favorite color combination challenge. This one uses Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Island Indigo and Whisper White.
I used snail adhesive to attach 1" strips of the different colors of card stock to a base and then ran it through the Big Shot using the Stripes impressions folder for the 5 1/4" x 4" layer on this card.

I have been looking at this stamp set since it came out a few years ago and finally broke down bought it. The first card is one I used at my Stamp a Stack last weekend which I already shared with you and the second is a do over that I made with some of the leftover pieces.
I used Bashful Blue and Wild Wasabi ink and sponged over the trees.
This weeks Late Night Stampers Challenge is our favorite color combinations. For my first sample, I chose pinks and browns which I seem to be drawn to a lot.
I used Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Soft Suede for this scrapbook page. The stamps sets are Simply Soft and Pursuit of Happiness and I added a couple ribbon flowers in there as well.

We had so many awesome projects again this round and if you haven't joined us yet, you can still get in on the fun and the tutorials. Our next session will be called Cards with Cool Moves so you won't want to miss that either! www.ustampwithdawnandfriends.com
I really like the colors of the Sweet Shop designer series paper and it goes so well with the Sweet Cake stamp set. I used Cherry Cobbler dazzling details for the cherry and heart on this one which shows up a lot better in person.
