Ahhhh - That feels so good!

The guests are all gone and my craft room is mine again! It was fun having a house full but I have missed my stampin' therapy. I got busy and did the grocery shopping this morning, put supper in the crock pot, and fixed myself a large vanilla diet coke - then headed for the craft room. Here are some of the cards I made today. I wanted to feature some of the new designer series paper (DSP).
I cased (Copy and Share Everything) from cards posted by other SU demos on a shared website - although some of these are so different from the original they don't even look similar) A great part of being an SU demo is all the inspiration you get from others through the demo web site.

Celebrations DSP is great for children's birthday cards or scrapbook pages.
Card Stock: Old Olive, Bashful Blue
Ink: Real Red, Pacific Point
Stamp Set: Look Who's Turning
Embellishments: Bitty Buttons
Punches: Itty Bitty Shapes set

I also played with the Lap of Luxury DSP.
Card Stock: Basic Gray, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla
Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Elegant Eggplant (the smaller flowers are 'stamped off' to make them a lighter shade)
Embellishments: Pearl jewel accent, 3/8 inch Basic Black taffeta ribbon.
(By the way, I still have shares available of the taffeta ribbons. )

This is the inside of the card. Since the card base is so dark I added this vanilla piece to write a note.

This is more of the Lap of Luxury DSP (I also have DSP shares available - want to try some but don't want the whole package - try a DSP share. )
Card Stock: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue
Ink: Elegant Eggplant ink
Embellishment: Concord Crush poly ribbon
Punches: Word Window, Modern Label, 1 3/8 inch square, 1 1/4 inch square

And another one using Lap of Luxury.

Sunny Garden is used on this one. These are colors that I would not normally use but it is like the retired Cottage Wall that I loved!
