Hip Hip Hooray!

The card I have to share today came from a stamp a stack option that was running low on pieces.  Instead of making up the rest of the cards with the same idea, I made a few with different stamp sets and a different layout.

For the dots behind the sentiment, I used the Ray of Sunshine stamp set and Crisp Cantaloupe ink.

Happy Halloween!  It is always so much fun to take the kids out on this day, they always have such a good time and come home very tired!  This card was in my Stamp A Stack last week and is quite simple using the Paper Pumpkin stamps from September and some Motley Monsters designer series paper.

Composition Alteration

As I transition from harvest back to having some stamping time, I am getting ready for a craft show and making a few items I don't normally have one hand.  Some of those items are altered notebooks and I thought I would share one of them with you today.  

I have used a composition book for this one, I usually have a stack of them on hand that I have found on clearance after back to school sales.  It is covered with Flashback designer series paper and I used sticky strip to attach both the designer series paper and the ribbon (retired).

The decorating is a simple layer of Real Red with the sentiment from Friends Who know on top of it.

Large Polka Dotted Christmas

The colors in the All is Calm specialty paper have become some of my favorites for combinations and I have really used the paper for a lot more than just Christmas projects.  This card is in my Stamp A Stack rotation right now and I have used both the specialty paper and washi tape.

There is my favorite embossing folder again too - Large polka dots! 
For the little piece stapled to the Note tag punch, I doubled some washi tape over onto itself so it wasn't sticky anymore instead of using ribbon.

Silver and Gray

This card is another example of using My Digital Studio and the Love Story Project Life collection.  After I printed the dress and hearts image, I stamped the sentiment and matted it on Smoky Slate card stock.  

The background is All is Calm specialty paper and a strip of Silver Foil Sheets.

Big News

The little onsies in the stamp set, Something for Baby, are just the cutest, don't you think?  I made a few baby boy and baby girl cards in the same design using different colors and centering around the onsies.
Since my backgrounds were plain (without stamping or embossing), I decided to mat my sentiment with some 2013 -2015 In color dsp stack designs.

Bloom with Hope Sympathy

There are a few of the Love Story Project Life cards that I really wanted to have more of so I purchased the digital version in order to print them myself.  That way, I can also re size them to fit my projects.

The lines and flowers next to the sentiment on this card were printed with My Digital Studio and the Love Story Project Life collection, I just reduced the size a little bit.
