Isn't this fun?!?

I am just having so much fun with my new stamps. Have you ever stepped outside your box and tried something new? For a few years now I have only been a SU! girl. Where I live there is really a very limited supply of stores so just about all of my purchases were thru SU! Well, blog hopping one day I decided to join the Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers and that was it! I met Toni my wonderful upline and it was the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Yes, theangelcompany™ and ME!!! I still love my collection of SU! stamps, but I can't say enough about TAC™. They are so reasonable and the quality is awesome!!! So now SU! has to move over in my heart to make PLENTY of room for these guys!!!

Ok, enough of my babble ~ let's get on with it!

This adorable little girl is from the Hello There set. She's just so darn cute. This is another card that I made for my little basket of cards that I'm selling.

I stamped the little flower on Pixie Pink paper with Pink Passion ink. I then took a piece of DP from the Sands of Time collection and sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the edges. I cut a piece of Blue Bayou cs and used my colozzle to make a square in the center of it. I don't have the square template so I made due with my rectangle one!! I then distressed the edges with my Heidi Swapp distresser (totally cheap for only $0.99) and placed the image that I colored with pencils & markers in the center of it. I wanted a quick saying so I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to place the words in the panel to the left of the image. I stamped one more flower, colored it in with markers and used a pop dot to place it in the corner over a photo corner I made from scraps. Quick, easy & cute!!

Here is another flap card that I made from the directions over at SCS. If you have not made one of these you've got to! They are SUPER easy and they are so cute.

For the base card itself I used So Saffron. I cut the paper and scored it according to the directions. I then cut a piece of DP from the Sands of Time collection and sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the edges. Before I glued it down I added a length of ribbon to it with a 'slide' that I made.

I took my designer label punch and punched out a piece of Old Olive cs. I then took my 1 1/4" circle punch and punched a circle from the same and adhered that on top of the label punch. I stamped the words "hey chick!" with Chocolate Chip ink, used my 1" circle punch and punched out the saying. I then sponged some Old Olive ink around the edge and taped that to the makeshift slide.

For the 'flap' part of the card I stamped the word peep in So Saffron ink. I stamped the chick images and colored them with pencils. I punched out that layer with my Mega Scallop Oval punch and layered that on to a piece of Old Olive that I punched out with my Giga Oval punch and adhered it to the card. To keep the flap closed I glued a tiny piece of Velcro on the inside ~ and I was done.

Another one of my favorite TAC™ sets is Little Friends. I think that the huge smiles on their faces are precious. So that brings me to the next card.

The base card is Soft Sky. I took a piece of Old Olive cs and layered a piece of DP from the Sands of Time Collection and used the sewing machine to sew those two pieces together. I then taped it to the card. I took another piece of Old Olive paper and layered another piece of DP from the Sands of Time collection, sponged around the edges with Old Olive ink and adhered that to the card.

I then took a label from the Catelynne collection and stamped the word 'hello' from the Just Giggle set with Old Olive ink and placed that to the right of the 2nd panel. I stamped the image from the Little Friends set and colored him in with pencils. I sponged some more Old Olive ink around the edges, layered it on to a piece of Old Olive cs and used pop dots to adhere to the card.
That was another quick and simple card.

And remember that in the month of April you can still receive double hostess rewards!! What that means is in the month of April if you hold a FUNshop worth $100.00 or more your rewards double. You will not only receive one, but two hostess sets free and not one, but two 1/2 price items in the catty! What a great time to get that Scor-Pal or Bind-It-All machine that you've been wanting!!! Plus your gift with purchases also double! Instead of only one free gift with purchase stamp for every $30.00 you will receive 2! How cool is that!!! Plus I will also throw in a free stamp set of your choice from the Big on Fun promo, you have 4 to choose from! If you have any questions or would like to place an order please don't hesitate to e-mail me :)

I hope that you all enjoy these few cards that I made ~ and I hope that it inspires you to go make something today!

Have a great day!
