There’s this new blogging event thing that Shimelle is starting called “10 things”. It looks like fun and I couldn’t resist joining in!

On the 10th of the month you’ll find a list here from me about some 10 things. đŸ™‚

To start it off, I’ll make a list using one of the latest cards that I made that I really am happy with! It’s a new Ippity Stamps set called New Season, New Wonder. A super cute and versatile 6 image set that is all fruity! Take a peek:

  2. the stamp images themselves, so cool! Love that distressed look
  3. I used clear heat embossing powder on the fruit
  4. that cute mini gingham bow is so cute!
  5. gotta love those Mojo Monday sketches!
  6. gotta love My Mind’s Eye patterned paper!
  7. Spellbinders dies are indispensable
  8. I used paper scraps, woohoo!
  9. it’s easy to duplicate
  10. because it is just plain SWEET!!

Here’s an Ippity Stamps only card. It’s a simple one using this week’s Card Positioning Systems Sketch and Play Date Cafe’s colors.

I heat embossing the chandelier in clear, inked with the metallic ink then rubbed the ink off of the embossed image. Voila!

Time for an ATC (artist trading card) update. My ATC club is meeting this weekend, so I needed to prepare my ATCs for this month. The theme is “hearts” – so many different possibilities!!

I decided on a super cute Unity stamp, heat embossing, an awesome new heart corner punch, baker’s twine and WOOD! YES, the tree trunk is real WOOD! Isn’t that cool??

I love making cards!

It’s Virtual Stamp Night this weekend on Splitcoast Stampers, so I thought that I would indulge myself in some stamping just for the fun of it.

So, VSN has various challenges under this month’s theme of You Make My Heart Sing. The hostesses are extremely creative with their challenges all relating back to the main theme. Great job ladies!

Here is another card with more to come.
