Guest Stamper!

Meet today's guest stamper: Jack Young!
Jack is my 3 year old son. He is showing you a sneak peek
of a new stamp set featured in the upcoming SU Holiday
Mini Catalog available September 1, 2009. Jack made
this special card for his friend Caroline's Birthday Party
this morning. He is very excited and can't wait to give it to her!

He used a variety of color.... I think he's developing
quite an eye for design. Notice the balance and attention
to detail. I hope he has inspired you today!

Yes, I helped with the signature, but he did the outline!
Check back soon for guest stamper Chloe Young.

Busy Busy Busy!

Good Monday Morning!! I was busy making lots of cards
this weekend. Cards for an order. Cards for an upcoming
workshop. Cards for my private stash...
Here are a couple of my favorites!

As you know, I have a creative block when it comes to masculine cards!
Well, I was quite proud of this one. I got the idea here. I'm not going
to make a detailed supply list on this one b/c most of the items are
retired (sorry). I will tell you that I used Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede,
V. Vanilla and the DSP is a retired winter pack and River Rock DSP.
Cut the DSP into squares. Adhere them to a sheet of card stock then
run them through the Big Shot with your Top Note Die.

* * * * *

These two cards might be my favorite from my weekend
of card making! I have a workshop coming up for a friend
that was curious about the Stampin' Pastels. I don't use
them often, so I got them out and started to experiment!

Supplies Used

Stamp Sets: Grateful Greetings* (sneak peak)
*This one's a set of 12 in the new mini coming soon!
Cardstock: C.Chip (top), Soft Suede (bottom),
More Musturd (sponged w/ R. Rust), Very Vanilla and Crushed Curry.
Inks: C.Chip (top), Soft Suede (bottom), Really Rust, and Versamark.
Accessories: Large Oval Punch (top), Small Oval Punch, Old
Olive 1/4 grosgrain ribbon and Stampin' Pastels in coordinating colors.
