Tote-Ally Tess

Hi Everyone, well I've been playing with a new stamp set from the Mini Catalogue and been having a lot of fun with it, anyway the set is called Tote-Ally Tess which comes with Tess, a tote bag, a marker, a stamp, a flower, a stamping wheel, a card, along with words saying I love to stamp and also The best things in life are handmade, not bought, which I agree with. Anyway hope you enjoy looking at some different ideas on using this set. The first one is the one I started with using it as the sketch for Stamping 411. So check out all the rest of the gals cards and stuff as they do a great job with samples of the sketches.

I used two of the new stamp sets for this card Vintage Vogue and Tiny Tags
I made the background paper for this using whisper white and the motif from the tiny tags set, The Letter F and friends was made using the vintage vogue set stamped with versamark ink and then embossed using silver embossing powder, the ribbon is from my stash its a silk black ribbon and the small flowers the stick pin and all the pearls and clear beads are from the pretties kit. the silver paper was from my stash and I embossed it using the petals a plenty folder running it through the big shot.

Abundant Hope

Here's a new card I did earlier in the week. I've not had much time to do anything as I've been sick. I hope to be able to do something tomorrow. Anyway this Sketch is from last Sunday's Stamptacular challenge. I used the new set from the mini catalogue to make this card along with some DP from SU as well. The set is called abundant hope. I love daffodils I think they are one of my favorite spring flowers. I used water color crayons to color it.
Thanks for looking

411 Stamping Challenge

Here is my card for the Stamping 411 challenge this week. It's only the third card I've done this year. I've been so tired that have had no energy to do anything at all. But that seems to be coming back again. I was going to take a week off this month, but we have someone at work already off on sick leave, so I have had to postpone my time off until March. Anyway I used new stamps from the mini catalogue again this time its I (Heart) Hearts. There are 8 beautiful hearts in this set and each one is different. I stamped and embossed the hearts using gold embossing powder then cut them out and mounted them with dimensionals onto real red designer paper, then mounted that on white. The sentiment is from the Short and Sweet set from the main catalogue. The background red was done using the impressions plate and the big shot.
Thanks for looking.

Stamps: Short and Sweet, I (heart)hearts
Card Stock: Real Read, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark
Other things used. Big Shot, Small Dots impressions plate, Gold embossing powder and gold ribbon from stash.
