Stamping all Weekend

I have had a very productive weekend of Stamping, I am going to an Occations mini swap on Tuesday so I needed to get all of those cards stamped, I also decided to catch up a little on my scrapbooking which I have been seriously neglecting. I really cannot wait to see Stampin' Up's new digital scrapbooking software due out later this year, I really want to see how digital works.
I will be showing some of my scrapbook pages this week.

Here is another cute card I made this weekend. This uses another new set "And Many Mower" from the occations mini which you can order from beginning April 1st. I could'nt wait to use it to make a Fathers Day card for my Dad, he is going to love it.

I used bordering blue for the card and Candy Lane and Bella Birds DSP. I also used neutral brads (chocolate chip) and the valet ribbon bundle, this was a very simple card to make and I just love the coloring.

Thoughts and Prayers Easter

Tonight I took a break from the chick and used the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, I used a piece of WW as the base and covered it with a piece of embossed baha breeze CS. Then I cut out a piece of pink pirouette and used the eyelet border punch across the bottom. The flower accents are from flower fusion too and one white brad. To stamp the image I used markers right on the stamp, I used old olive, bashful blue and pretty in pink. Then I added a dot of crystal effects on each flower just for a little shine. Hope you enjoy.

I started with a Certainly Celery base and layered pretty in pink (embossed with the big shot) and a piece of the Delicate Dot DSP from (SAB) I added a piece of whisper white punched with the eyelet border punch. The egg is stamped and cut out of a piece of DSP from Candy Lane.
