Two for one today!

Okay, so since I have been so excited about this stamp set from SU, I will show you another card today. Two for one! I used a simple color scheme, Real Red, Whisper White, and Basic Black. I forget sometimes what a nice almost elegant look these colors can be together. In fact, if it wasn't for my friend liking red, I may not have tried this combo for a while longer! Thanks!

Love this stamp! It may just be one stamp...but there's so many possibilities! I made several so you may see some of those as time goes on. The first one was a emboss resisit. This was done with white ep and then sponged color over the top of the whisper white paper, and then wiped off the white ep- because it comes off when you rub it. The colors don't show up as good as I'd like, I used Night of Navy and Old Olive, but my camera is doing something funny with the lighting! I used a rhinestone in the center to set it off, and just about any sentiment could be added. Next, I'll show you one I made for my friend's birthday.

Nephew Presents

When went out this summer, I had made these two cards for my youngest nephews. I just happened to have gift bags that matched pretty well too. I am

going to miss the Wild About You set, I really liked using it with the Inspired By Nature set like this. However, I can't take credit. It was a "cased card" I don't remember honestly where I saw it, but it was not an original idea to me. Of course I used one of my favorite colors, Old Olive, for the base, and Sarah Sand for the torn background.

The other card was my idea though. I used the Pun Fun stamp set along with the Star punch, and Staring You, on the Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango card stock. Can't wait to get in my room and make some new projects. Love the new cattalog, stay tuned for more coming soon-and Happy Stampin' .

Back at Last

Wow! I am back at last. I didn't mean to take so much time off from blogging...but time seemed to be a blur. We went on our migratory trip down south for summer. (Yes, we are opposite), we are back in Barrow now, and we even have gotten the begining of school underway already.

Summer was full family, and full of on the go fun, water parks, camping at the lake, hiking, cannoeing, and campfires. We even got to visit some friends in Dillon and go on a raft/float trip down the Madison and Jefferson Rivers.

If you have followed my blog, you would know that we "dog set" last Christmas vacation for a teacher family who went off slope for vacation. That being said, the idea of having our own special little dog was born. We met a wonderful couple who breed dogs in Belgrade, MT. They were such helpful and warm people, we went back several times. The last time we went to visit, our DD picked out a puppy. He is about 8wks old now, and we are waiting to go get him. The kids can talk of nothing else, except the puppy even as sick as they were this week, they asked so many questions. Mostly they are just excited and can't wait. So here is our little bundle of love at about 4ks. old when his eyes just had opened. I would love to hear your idea on names!
