Sketched Birthday

I’ll be needing some birthday cards this week and so over the weekend I did a little stamping with that in mind. I wanted something mono chromatic and so I reached for the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper (133704). It’s one of my favorite since you get so many of the same pattern it’s great for making multiples.

These first two cards use the Sketched Birthday stamp set. For the first one I used the Bitty Banner Framelits Dies and simply stamped the second one.

I can’t decide which one I like best. How about you? Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Here is the inside – I love this quirky Something to Say (134177/134180) sentiment set and thought it went well with the image.

Sketched Birthday and Something to Say

This last card uses the Traveler stamp set (134510/134513) and the Petite Pairs set (128706/122497) for the sentiment. Such a great little set since it covers almost everything!

Black & White Convention Swaps

Over the next few days I’ll be sharing some of the Black and White cards that I received from my Convention swaps. Black and White cards are always classic and a great way to start stamping since it doesn’t require a lot of supplies.

Traveler Convention swap 2014

This card was made using the Traveler stamp set, one of my favorites! I love the way that Cheryl used the Just Sayin’ stamp set to add the sentiment – how about you? It adds a taste of contemporary to these classic sets.

Want to see my Black & White card? I used the Traveler stamp set too – click HERE to see my swap.

Traveler On Film

Do you love black & white cards? I love the classic elegance of these colors together. Black and white cards are a great for new stampers too since it only requires a few items to create a wonderful project.


I love the Traveler stamp set from the 2014 Annual Catalog. It has such great images that have a vintage feel and so that makes them perfectly to this classic color combo.


I love the water so for this card I chose to use the ship. I started out thinking I would use our StazOn Jet Black Pad for this card, but since my NEW Memento Tuxedo Black Pad was laying on my table I grabbed it instead. I was pleasantly surprise when I stamped my image with it since it has a softer feel and made it perfect for this project. ( I just hadn’t noticed it when I’d been stamping line images for coloring with the Blendabilities.)

So what do you think? This is the second of my swap cards for Convention – I’m hoping they will love this card as much as I do!

Traveler 2014 Catalog Sneak Peek

Wow, yesterday I got my box of 2014 Annual Catalog items and couldn’t wait to dive in. You are going to LOVE the new colors they are rich and beautiful and work so well together with our existing colors. My eye is typically drawn to the softer shades, but our new 2014-2016 are rich and bold and I loved them the moment I saw them.

I know, I know you want to see them right? – quit talking about it and show me. LOL. Well here is my first card that I made using the NEW stamp set, Traveler.

Traveler Graduation  (2)

When I saw this set I just fell in love with it. I’m not sure why because typically this set isn’t my style – but the ship in particular called my name. And what a great set to make cards for those men in our lives.

I knew that the globe would make a perfect graduation card for my cousin’s twins, who are graduating this weekend. So I got started stamping quickly deciding to use two of our new In Colors, Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon. Don’t you just love the names and the images they conjure up?
