It's coming back...

My mojo that is :) Lately I've been buying more than I've been stamping, but in the past 2 days I've made 4 new cards! I'm so happy to be stamping again!

I'll start with the 1st card I made with the SU Heart Association set; A Light Heart. My MIL bought this set for me. I made this to give to her when we get together this weekend.

It’s really pretty basic, but I've found that's the best way to get your mojo back, start simple! I used the CHF (Cornish Heritage Farms) Paisley stamp in Really Rust on the Pumpkin Pie layer and then over stamped it with SU's Linen also in Really Rust. I think it gives a similar look to the new SU Paisley. The Hearts are Really Rust, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie. The layout has been used on SCS a lot.

Next card is made with images I received from the IRAK group on SCS (I'll talk about that group later ;) ) Of course ever since I got the first set of Linograph images from the IRAK group, am kicking myself for not buying it before it retired. Now I really like it! LOL oh BST forum here I come!

So I colored the Penny Black chicken with markers and also with the aquapainter. I just love all the different colors of gingham ribbon you can get now! Last year I was looking for Orange gingham around this time of year, and it was almost impossible to find, so when I did find it (after Halloween of course) I bought 3 spools ;)

This one I'm not "in love with" but it's ok. I guess I'm not sure I like the whimsical image with the elegant paper and stamps. The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. I used Linen and French Script on the second layer and Linen on the card base. I do like the rivets I used. When I went to put that layer on top, the rivets were too thick even with using pop dots, so I took the backs off and they fit much better. I just hope they don't fall out of the holes. LOL I doubt it though. Lots of distressing on this one as well; I think it really fits the fall theme.

Last but not least, my favorite card of day. I LOVE the Wild About You set! It's next on my list to purchase (after the Best Fiends and the Halloween stuff in the mini!)I was lucky to get some images from the IRAK group :) So I've been having fun playing with them until I can buy the set for myself!

The card is HEAVILY inspired by a card by Bobbynbrit on SCS. She used a different Basic Grey paper and the Layout is a bit different, but her card was the jumping off point for this one :)

I LOVE the Dotted background stamp! It was the very first thing I bought out of the new catty. It just works so well with the giraffe stamp. The dots on the background mimic the dots on the giraffe and then are echoed again with the 3D dot stickers in the bottom left corner. Ok those stickers were a GREAT find! I found them in the $1 section at JoAnns. They look like brads, but are stickers so the don't show on the inside of your card like brads do. I just wish they made them in more colors!

I *REALLY* like the Light Heart set. Great colors, and of course anything with paisley is way cool :) And the giraffe is very cute, too. I like how you've used the Dotted background on the top. Great detail to add interest without stealing from the focal point!

Welcome to my new an improved blog. I hope you can find something useful, insightful, humorous or just plain silly here. Enjoy!
