Weekend Stamping Frenzie

Since Friday I have been stamping up a storm. This has been the perfect weekend to stay inside and stamp. Friday night we had a nasty storm that made roads pretty dangerous and Saturday wasn't much better. Today the sun was shining but it was pretty cold out. I'm not much of a winter person and would much rather stay inside where its nice and warm.

Outlines Birthday - I’ve had these Outlines stamps for over a year now and have never made anything with them. This was actually an easy card to make. I just stamped the flower images on pink watercolored patterned paper, cut both sizes of the flower out, layered them and added stickles to the center. The background paper is a K&Co mat pad (either Bailey or McKenna) that I bought awhile back and finally decided to use it. The birthday script stamp is an acrylic one belonging to a set. A pretty but simple card.

Welcome to the World - Next May we will be having 3 new additions to our family. Since all 3 of my nieces are expecting babies in the same month I’ve been adding baby cards to my stash here & there.

I love this little giraffe stamp. It’s perfect for cardmaking or even to add to mini books or scrap pages. Normally brown and gold aren’t traditional baby colors but these colors just caught my eye so I decided to go with it. This is another simple card that came together quite quickly.

Princess Turtle - I love this stamp set by Inky Antics called “Princess Turtle”. I purchased it from Addicted to Rubber Stamps. (It’s now discontinued there). There are about 17 or 18 images in this set so it was well worth the money.

This is another quick & easy card. I added it to the Cuttlebug number collage embossing folder background. There are stickles on the wand and on the stars on her hat.

Heidi Grace Cards - I love this Heidi Grace bird stamp. The crown stamp I borrowed from my Princess Turtle acrylic stamp set by Inky Antics that I purchased from Addicted to Rubber Stamps. (It’s now discontinued there). The rest of the images are from the “Tags & Words” stamp set by Heidi Grace.

I added stickles to the heart, as well as on the heart & tail piece on the bird plus on the crown. The verse “No You May Not Wear My Crown” was printed on my computer.

Every Step You Take - I love these adorable shoes from Paperbag Studios. The black and white paper I received awhile ago as a blog prize and it was already cut to this size which is probably why I never used it until now. I added a small piece of the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder background to the center of the card which, gave me the look I was after. I am thrilled with how it turned it.

Giddy Up House Mouse - I love the House Mouse images. They always make me smile. I have a few of the House Mouse stamps but I always struggle with turning them into cards. For this card I used pattern paper from a K&Co mat pad (baby) and stuck with the colors of the image.

At the Beach - This is a stamp that caught my eye because of the innocence of the children. I love the beach and playing in the sand brings back memories of my childhood. I grew up a few blocks from the beach and spent almost every day at the beach in the summer.

Basic Grey Santa - I couldn’t resist adding another Santa card. This time I used some pattern paper from the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding line.
