This is what I've been up to, again!

Just a couple of creations for today! I wanted to make a couple of thank you cards and now with my clear $1.00 stamps hanging on my hillbilly hanger I thought that I'd use them.

The base cards are Pixie Pink. I layered them with some paper that my friend Betty ran thru her Cuttlebug for me. I then used a crayon that I ran over the embossed paper to give it a little more color. I added a length of ribbon and that was the base of the card.

I took my Giga scallop circle punch and punched out the larger circle ~ then the Mega scallop punch to punch out the smaller circle in a different shade. I stamped the images from Studio G (woo-hoo to my Michael's for finally getting those in!!) in Pink Passion ink. I layered that image on top of the scallop circles. Then the bottom corner looked a little plain.

I took my designer label punch, my 1 1/4" circle punch and my word window punch to make the layers for the bottom saying. I stamped the saying 'very much' in Pink Passion ink. The saying is from Hero Arts. I added a couple of brads and taped it to the corner. Quick and easy.

This card took me a few days. You know why? Well it was "Mom" this and "honey" that. I finally sat down and finished it ~ and I was happy with the outcome. I used the TAC set A Bit of Camping and the SU! set Lovely as a Tree for this card.

The base card is Creamy Caramel. I took Close to Cocoa ink and stamped the sleeping bag all over the card. I layered Handsome Hunter and some DP from TAC's Kamalaht collection and layered it to the card. I added a couple of eyelets on the bottom piece.

For the main images I stamped the tent, fishing pole & fire with the TAC set. Since I do not have any trees from TAC yet I had to use SU's Lovely as a Tree set. I masked off the tent and fire and stamped those images. When everything was colored I then used a stipple brush to apply ink to the sky and ground. I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

Now, I'm off to do some blog hopping! Have a great day!!

Love the camping card! Masking always seems like a lot of work to me, but maybe I'll have to try it again. Do you use the Masking Magic product or just Post-its?

Great cards Joani. I think you have the right idea by making three or four at the same time.
