Greetings From Cape Cod

Good Afternoon!

A few weeks ago I saw that Jenn Shurkus had designed 
her very own Cape Cod Stamp Set.
Within minutes I ordered it!

Look at it!


Isn't it fantastic?!?!
I surely think so!

As soon as it came in the mail I got it inky, oh so inky!  
I have made several Fun Fold cards using this fabulous set.
Here is the first of them!

It's quite a FUN Fold.

Jackie Bolhuis has this great video 
with the measurements you can watch HERE.

This will be entered into the Challenges at;

Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!

All images stamped in Amalgam Black ink, colored with Copic Markers 
and fussy cut out, and paper pieced over the stamped image.
Designer Papers by PTI, Men Of Life.

Tutti Designs Cross Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Tags dies.

Open side view.

MFT Open Simply Scallop die.

Side View.

ScorPal Pocket Pen Pals die

Sakura Glitter Pen.

So much fun to create with a Cape Cod stamp set!

How Sweet Of You

Good Morning! 

A quick little post with a quick little Tag.

This will be entered into the Challenges at:

I made a layered Tag.  
The back layer has been embossed using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.
My Tags were made using the Tutti Designs Stitched Tags dies.
Sentiment by Gina K Designs, Sweet Strawberries stamped in Amalgam Black ink.

Cheapo Dies, Love Machine.

This came together quite easily.

I think I will go by The Chatham Candy Manor and pick up something a little sweet for my Mom for Mother's Day.....or her birthday, which fall on the same day this year, May 12th.

Sunshine & Happiness

Good Afternoon!

I then spritzed Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Butter all over the water coloring.

Double D, Black And White Only

Good Morning! 

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog

Here is your Inspiration Tile:

Double D, Black And White Only

Here's my card:

I was drawn to the balloons and butterflies from the Mood Board.  
Using an Embossing Folder I dry embossed my background in a Happy Birthday Motif.
The balloons were created using the Impression Obsessions Birthday Balloon die.  
I sponged a bit of Dove Grey ink on the White ones to add a bit of dimension.
I 'planted' them into the Simple Garden Pots die cut by Memory Box, adding Baker's Twine strings.  The little butterflies were cropped using a Memory Box die, Butterfly Exhibit

A Vellum strip was heat embossed using Black Embossing Powder.  
Happy Birthday sentiment by Gina K Designs, Pleasant Plurals stamp set.
Inside stamp also by GKD, Happy Spring.
Amalgam Black ink.

This card came together rather quickly.  I'm somewhat amazed when that happens lol
