A circle punch and some sponges or a brayer are all you need to create the spotlight effect shown in this card. I sponged Summer Sun all over white cardstock for the base layer. Then I punched a circle out of a post it note and placed it where I wanted the "sun" . Then I sponged Really Rust, So Saffron, and Pumpkin Pie to create the rest of the background. The cat-tails are grass image from Inspired by Nature stamped in Really Rust with the tops punched using the horizontal slot punch and chocolate chip paper. Thanks for looking!

Baby Gift

Today was the big day for my super cute godson
Liam, his baptism! I used the now retired, sniff, Wild About You and the Cute as a Bug sets to create Liam's wall hanging. I cut the letters out of Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke cardstock using my Cricut and layered them to look shadowed.

When I saw this super cute box posted on the Stampin' Up! website, I knew I had to try it. This guy uses the Top Note die for the Big Shot, 1" and 1/2" circle punches, rounded tab punch, basic black stampin write marker, certainly celery and lovely lilac cardstock. Thanks for looking!

Guy card

It seems like no matter how experienced the stamper, creating a card for a guy is difficult. For me personally, I find these cards the most challenging type to make. I fell back on the trusty set Lovely as a Tree and Old Olive and Chocolate Chip cardstock. The tree was inked in Creamy Caramel and "thumped" with Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust and Close to Cocoa markers. I love the multicolored effect thumping adds to an image. Hope this helps someone looking to make the perfect card for the special guy.

Post convention party swaps

Becky created this really cool card using the Dasher stamp and the movers and shapers die with the curly label insert. I just love the dasher stamp, what a versatile stamp and it's less than $10!

Heidi uses another under $10 stamp, Little Boo, with some of the Cast-A-Spell designer series paper to create a super cute Halloween card. It's hard to believe Halloween is just around the corner! Summer has really flown by this year.

Angie used the new background stamp Medallion as the focal point for this card. She stamped on the back of the vellum cardstock with the in color Soft Suede and finished off the card with Dusty Durango polka dot ribbon. As always, the cards from this swap are awesome!! I will post more another day, my computer may just explode if I try to do more tonight! Thanks for looking!
