Some cards I made yesterday and today....

Don't forget to leave a comment on this post for the BLOG GIVEAWAY... you could be one of two winners of a Amuse Hero Mail stamp set.

God Bless The USA: I cut the shape of the United States out with my Cricut Expression using the Going Places cartridge, set on 3 1/4". I then inked up my Stampin' UP! Red, White and Blue Jumbo Wheel with Barn Red Distress Ink and wheeled it onto the Kraft card stock cut out. I sponged the edges on it. The Night of Navy layer is embossed with a Stars embossing folder. The sentiment was cut from an extra strip I inked and stamped using the wheel on a piece of Kraft card stock. I just layered the card onto Kraft and Riding Hood Red card stock, put some brads down the side and that was it.. it went together really quickly.

I Love U: I bought this Unity stamp set "Love Bug" from a fellow SCS'er the other day and while watching the OWH UStream video on Thursday night, I stamped it onto the gingham pattern paper and cut it out. I found some pieces of the cloud pattern paper in the paper box and so I stamped and cut out the window. I used a sketch from a Sketch For You To Try.
Tangerine Tango (I think that's the name of it), Bayou Blue and So Saffron are the card stock colors on this card. Punches, embossing, duplicate stamping and paper piercing was used on this card.

Thanks: I sat down at my desk tonight and seen this piece of Groovy Guava card stock sitting there and thought I'd make a card. I used a sketch layout from There She Goes 104. I used one of my favorite Stampin' UP! stamp sets Live Your Dream and some gorgeous Designer Series Paper: Afternoon Tea... ahhh. they are so beautiful and retired (boo!). I don't have a Groovy Guava ink pad anymore, so I used a distress ink pad on the flowers. I used a new Martha Stewart punch that my hubby bought for me, some beautiful Very Vanilla ribbon.. ahhhh, so pretty. Nesties on the circle and scallop. Stampin' UP! punches for the sentiment. Corner Chomper to round the corners.. that's it.. all done. I really like the way it turned out.. anything with that stamp set and paper is a favorite for me.

How clever to use the USA background stamp on the cutout of the US! And the love bug turned out fabulous! I love the window with the clouds. Great idea! So glad you are able to put that set to good use!
