Some cards I made over the summer

I managed to stamp a few cards this summer but never got around to posting them on here so I thought I would do that now.

Stamps: CTMH Free Spirit, For Every Occasion
Paper: CTMH Sunny Yellow, Bubblegum, Topiary
Inks: CTMH Bubblegum, Topiary, Dutch Blue
Accessories: CTMH Just Blooms, gold brads

For these next two cards, I got the color inspiration from the CTMH Fall/Winter 2007 catalog. This first color combination is from the Life Delights My Reflections kit:

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Little Lady, Green Thumb
Papers: CTMH Blush, Chocolate, Lilac Mist, Sweet Leaf, Colonial White
Inks: CTMH Blush, Chocolate, Lilac Mist, Sweet Leaf

The color combination for this next cards is from CTMH Enchanted My Reflections Kit. I don't think I care for this combination.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Little Lady, Green Thumb
Paper: CTMH Autumn Terracotta, Garden Green, Smokey Plum, Sunflower, Colonial White
Inks: CTMH Autumn Terracotta, Garden Green, Smokey Plum, Sunflower, Colonial White

The next two cards use paper by Cosmo Cricket. I was in Pat Catan's one day and saw the one with flowers and it reminded me of the flowers from Paper Trey Ink's Little Lady and Green Thumb sets. It took me awhile to find inks in my supplies that coordinated with the papers but I think I found some that were pretty close. I'm not sure that I really like the colors of this paper. Definitely not a color combination that I would put together.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink's Little Lady, Green Thumb, Paper Tray
Papers: Cosmo Cricket's Miss Molly, Peggy Sue, some unknown cardstock from Pat Catan's
Inks: CTMH Grey Wool, Color Box Roan Chestnut and one of their reds
Accessories: CTMH bigger brads, red grosgrain ribbon from Pat Catan's

I finally got to stamp today!

My two dds and I were finally able to make it over to my sister's house to do some stamping this afternoon. I needed a couple thank you cards to send to my cousin and my aunt and uncle to thank them for the Macy's gift certificate my cousin sent me on behalf of all of them for my birthday which was in September. Normally I don't get a present from them, but since my aunt and my uncle have been in assisted living and my sister and I do all their shopping, taking care of their meds, etc. since my cousin lives in Texas, they have gotten us gift certificates for our birthday the last couple years.

Ever since another CTMH consultant (Kathi Carlson) posted some cards she made using the floral dimensional elements and the Floral Elements stamps set, I have been wanting to play with the set. The two thank you cards are cased from a couple cards that she made. I used a different color combination than she did and I also added the stem and leaves to the one card. I was having so much fun playing with this set that I went ahead and made another card.

Stamps: CTMH Floral Elements
Paper: CTMH New England Ivy, White Daisy, Barn Red
Inks: CTMH Autumn Terracotta, Sunflower, Barn Red, New England Ivy
Accessories: CTMH White Daisy Grosgrain, Bigger Brads, Flower Garden Dimensional Elements

I had so much fun stamping today that I just want to keep stamping. Unfortunately, all my stuff is at my sister's house, my DH is being a monster at Cedar Point and my dds are in bed so I am stuck here at home. I happened to look at Nicole Heady's blog today and saw the beautiful slider card that she made and so want to make one right now. I guess I'll have to just keep blogging to keep my mind off making that slider card. Hopefully, my dds will be good tomorrow and we can go do some more stamping.
