One layout to share, plus some cards!

Here's a quick layout, made with my current favorite color, orange.  Nick and his friend were making up songs while Nick played his guitar.  I was sitting on the opposite couch and did these iPhone self-portraits... I never realized how fat my tongue is.  Ha ha!  The title, phrase, and guitar are stamped from an older CTMH set.  With the title I did stamp the middle one first and then worked my way up as the ink on the stamp faded, then fully inked my stamp, stamped it on scrap paper, and did the lighter shades back on my title, working down the second time.

I used some CTMH chipboard, too.  The music notes are Cuttlebug dies that I've had for *years*... glad I finally used them!

I had a few scraps leftover and I decided to use them ALL up.  I made a few cards.  All I needed was cardstock for the actual card.  I used a Sizzix folder to emboss the hearts on the yellow strip.  CTMH "Hugged" stamp. 

I used SU! punches for the circle and scallop circle.  Flowers are Prima, bling is CTMH, ribbon is SU! grosgrain.

Stamps are CTMH, ribbon is SU! on this next one.

Technique Tuesday "thank you" stamp, SU! grosgrain ribbon, CTMH twine.

SU! punch for the scallop border, Darice embossing folder on the green banner, CTMH stamp, SU! grosgrain ribbon. 

And what's left?  Not much...

Not bad for three sheets of patterned paper and three sheets of cardstock! (I had already used a good chunk of it on a previous two-page layout that's in one of my son's albums, in storage somewhere)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving love!  All comments welcome, even some constructive criticism if you have it.  :)

  1. Very nice, I love your stamping technique and all your neat cards. Two things I need to do more of stamping on my scrap book pages & making cards.
