This card is seriously just thrown together while I was in my hotel room at training waiting to go to dinner w/my new friends.  I had this stamp set in my stack of stuff FOREVER now and wanted to use it but didnt know what to do with it.  One of the things I am loving about the clear stamps is being able to arrange my stamp to look like I want it to instead of having to stamp-a-ma-giging it.   This set consists of these three chairs and a double seated chair...I honestly didn't care for it much when it came out but I have seen some extremely cute cards with it so decided to get it.

Pink Open Sea

I had training a few weeks ago in Bloomfield Hills/Troy so while having extra time in my hotel room I thought I would try to accomplish some cards.  I ended up with not as much time alone as I thought, I made some new and wonderful friends....we had such a fun week.  I can't wait to see them all again.  I did find time to whip out this card and one other.  I used the new Open Sea stamp set in the Summer Mini and wanted to do something more girly.  The stamp set I think is more of a man set however I like how this card turned out.  The background is one of the stamps using Melon Mambo ink, I roughed up the edges on the frame.  To me it kinds of looks like a picture hanging on a wall.

Open Sea swap

This was my second swap for the new catalog swap that I am in.  I got this idea from a flowery card a friend at Memories Manor had with her.  I again was not sure at first what I thought of this card but I ended up liking it when I was done.  It uses the new stamp set called Open Sea.  I am really loving this stamp set and hope they add it to the new catalog coming out for the year.

New punch, swap

So this is one of the cards I whipped together while at Memories Manor this is also the card I used for the new catalog swap that I am in.  I used black as my base and all the in colors along the side.  This picture I don't think shows the color as well as I would like it too but it turned out cuter than I certainly thought it would.

Time to say goodbye to the old, hello to the new!!

It's that time again this year to say goodbye to retiring stamps and accessories.  I am sad to see some of the stuff leaving but so excited to see what new is on its way. Here are links to the retiring stamps and accessories.  Be sure to get with me if you want anything before it is gone.
