Friday Favorites

When the new catalog came out I just knew that I had to have this stamp set. It is a bit quirky and fun. It will be perfect to send to my brother who has several of the animals pictured and who doesn't love to color. I inked up the From the Herd Stamp Set with Momento Black Ink and then colored with the Blendabilities. I used the Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana and the Skin Tones. I added just a bit of Twine before adding the sentiment which also comes with the set. I hope you enjoyed the From the Herd Card and that you take a moment to go check out the other cards at our SSINKspiration Blog . Thanks and have a great weekend, Tonya

Use what's on your Desk...

SSInkspiration Team 
My desk consists of two eight foot tables but I did limit my supplies but since I recently cleaned this space up I didn't have as many supplies at hand. I did receive the Lotus Blossom Stamp Set and it was on my workspace and the Blackberry Bliss Ink Pad was still out from the card I made last week. I paired it with Pear Pizzazz and this card was pretty easy from there. I used a Paper Doily that happened to be out and the Deco Label Framelits were perfect to cut out my stamped image. I really like the Lotus Blossom and that is is free right now makes it even better. Be sure and check out the other cards that the team made. I added the link above all you need to do is click. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Tonya

Let's Stamp A Stack

Sometimes it is nice to just set down and do a stack of cards to have ready when the occasion strikes. That is what makes a Stamp a Stack a great event. Today I am sharing a quick and easy stamp a stack card with you and one of the best things is you can make it in any color. Supplies are Blackberry Bliss Ink Pad and Card Stock, Whisper White card stock and Craft Pad, Soft Sky Card Stock, Basic Rhinestones, White Embossing Powder, Bravo Stamp Set and Work of Art Stamp Set. I just embossed the Congrats with White Embossing Powder then stamped the Blackberry Bliss across the top making sure that I didn't reink the stamp between stamping. This gives the ink the gradually fading affect. I hope you check out the rest of the teams cards and that you have a great weekend. Thanks!

January Card Sketch

It is Monday which means it is sketch day over at the SSINKspiration blog and I had some time to play along. I need some thank you cards and used the sketch to create this one. The colors are Blackberry Bliss, Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana with Whisper White. I used a couple of stamp sets which are Another Thank You and Work of Art. With the help of the Big Shot this card gets a bit more piazza. I used the Circle Framelits, Circle Card Thinlit and the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder to finish off the card. I hope you enjoyed my card even though my post is short. I enjoyed stamping and hope to get some more done soon. Have a great day, Tonya
