Like I said, I have been stamping, I just haven’t been posting.  Sorry!  (Thank you to those who have been encouraging me to keep posting!)

This card I made for my brother Joe’s birthday last month.  I think it looked better in real life.  I used the Heated Pearls technique for the background.

Stamps: In the Wild (retiring June 30th- that makes me so sad!)

Ink: Versamark

Paper: Glossy White, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust

Accessories: Pearl Ex Powders, Gold Cord

My nephew, Oliver, turned 9 this month.  We didn’t have time to buy him a gift, and we know how much kids love getting money.  So, I made a card pocket card to hold the cash.  I love using Simply Scrappin’ Kits to put together cards.  I also stamped the cake from the matching stamp set, Eat cake, on the envelope in the coordinating inks (but didn’t take a photo of that).

Stamps: Eat Cake (for the happy birthday saying), Dotted background, Brushstroke Numbers (retiring this June!)

Paper: Party Pieces Simply Scrappin’ Kit

Accessories: Turquoise & White Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Key Tag Punch
