Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Stamps of Life

I’ve been at it again, finding cool recipes to capture and save. When can I try them all???? 🙂

I’m doing some cleaning by using up paper I’ve had for close to a year at least as the base for this 6×6 recipe page. I did NEED to couple it with something new – the stamps from Stamps of Life! Too cute for words, this month’s Love2Hug set fits this recipe card perfectly! Thanks Steph!

So, Stephanie at The Stamps of Life is giving everyone a motivation to use her stamps – a contest! Nothing like the chance to win something free to inspire one’s creativity!

Ok, well that’s not the only thing to inspire. How about a great sketch from Mojo Monday? Yes indeed, coupling those 2 with Prism Paper, what a great combo! The result is below. A cute Christmas card that’s quick and easy with some simple cuts and punches. Imagine the scraps you could use up!?…

I do love my glitter and embossing powder! Here’s a pretty simple card using up scraps (yea!). The leaves are punched from WonderFilm and Glitter Glitz’d. The words are heat embossed. What is WonderFilm? It’s a cool clear adhesive that has incredible sticking power —–> offered from P K Glitz. The glitter AND embossing powder is from P K also. Super because the glitter matches the embossing powder! I just love the sparkle!

I made a fun Halloween card yesterday using the new sketch from Card Positioning Systems #137 AND my new Stamps of Life stamps! I love everything about this month’s stamp set – so versatile and FUN! Great job Stephanie!

Did I get your attention? LOL, probably!

One of the fun challenges on Split Coast Stampers yesterday included using chocolate colored paper, a sketch and “thanks” as the theme. Here’s my rather simple but cute card (I think anyway 🙂 ), using the September stamp set from Stephanie Bernard’s Stamps of Life and the sketch from the challenge. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of these images since they are TOO COOL!
