Fun in the stampin room today!

Whooohoo! I finally had enough mojo to pump out two cards! This week has just been crazy busy and it's not going to get any better until Friday at 4:00, lol! So I figured in order to stay sane I better do something FUN!
My first card is made with the new Apple Cider patterened paper in SU!'s new Holiday Mini (available September 1st, contact me to have one mailed to you!) and the new set called True Friend! I love these two combined, they're gorgeous! They would even make cute Christmas cards!

Okay, the deets!

The cardstock base is Wild Wasabi (totally yummy color) and obviously the patterened paper is the new Apple Cider! It's double sided and the two patterns here come from one sheet (love that!). I stamped the medallion on Really Rust and again in Wild Wasabi and cut the Wild Wasabi center out and mounted it on the Really Rust on dimensionals! I also added Dazzling Diamonds in the center. I stamped the True Friend quote in Really Rust and mounted it on Wild Wasabi (after using my corner rounder on both pieces). I tied the ribbon around the card (from Ribbons and Bows Oh My!...Great store!) This card was super fun to make and I can't wait to send it to someone!!

My second card was made with my favorite PaperTrey Ink set called "Little Lady" I just love this little bug! The base is CTMH Chocolate, I so love that color! It's wonderful:) I also used Cool Carribean (which I cut with my scallop scissors) and Whisper White. I stamped the lady bugs and flowers in Cool Carribean and Black and mounted this all on the Chocolate base. I tied the Chocolate Chip Taffetta Ribbon around the card. I then cut a piece of CC with my Marvy Giga Scallop Oval punch and cut another oval with my coluzzle to fit inside. I stamped the phrase and added some brads and mounted the whole thing on the card with dimensionals:) I think it turned out cute, sending it to my mom!


Well, I have to go feed the men of the house before they feel neglected;) Ta-ta for now!!!
