Sara's party- May 2013

We hopped right into stamping at Sara's party!  Garden Green and Summer Starfruit star in this card.  The cute frog is from Moving Forward, the Ronald McDonald House stamp for this year (and only available until the end of May!)

Next was a sneak peek.  The stamp set A Round Array is available now, and will be in the new catalog in June.  The words are from Curly Cute, which is retiring at the end of May.  Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla are used to make this card.  To make the words darker and lighter in color, I simply stamped off before I stamped on the card.

The thank you card, above, was a make-n-take.  It's quick and easy, and can be changed for any occasion with a quick change of color or stamps.  You could make a stack of these in no time!  Bravo Burgundy is a retiring color, but Night of Navy and Summer Starfruit are here to stay.

The other make-n-take uses Perfect Plum.  It makes a great sympathy card (that set is long ago retired), but would also make a beautiful birthday or Mother's Day card.

Where do I get my ideas?  Well, all over!  Sometimes it's from something I see in a store or magazine.  But mostly it's from other people's stamping blogs, or  I love to CASE, and I use ideas I see to inspire me to try something new.

Happy Stamping!
