A Scrappin' I will go...

So this weekend I was working on a few cards that I am going to enter into a contest. I don't know if I will win but I had fun making these anyway!

This first one is using the new stamp set Trees & Things (D1467. I don't know how often I will use this one but it is just so cute, and that little wooden swing? Oh so cute! I also used an oldie but a goodie, Flower Pot (D1409) for the Thanks sentiment. I used Pear, Cocoa and New England Ivy as the ink colors. The paper packet was Miracle and I used the B&T and the bamboo cardstock from that packet. To top it off I used one of the new Kraft Color Ready Borders (already has adhesive on the back! Woohoo! No sticky fingers!)

For this one I used the stamp set Treasure Life (D1306) for the sentiment. I used the B&T and cardstock from Sophia paper packet. See that cute little flower? Made with circle punches from the B&T paper! Wet them, crumple them, uncrumple them and stick a brad through all of them! Voila! A cute flower! Then I used my new favorite embellies - the Kraft Color Ready borders with some cardstock under it!

I think I got this stamp set when there was some promotion going on. It is You're Great D1434. It isn't necessarily one I would use all the time as it seems kind of "childish" and I don't have many children to send silly cards to. Gotta love the cute little hippo! And I just had to put a birthday hat on him! I used the B&T paper and cardstock Fanfare as its primary colors just screamed birthday

And of course what would one of my posts be without something having to do with coffee? The stamp set is (gasp!) not CTMH. It is from My Favorite Stamps and is called Miss You a Latte. You will be thankful to know all other product IS CTMH. I used the B&T paper and cardstock from the new Mayberry paper packet. I also used the new Kraft cardstock. I love this paper and have been using contraband paper up until now. Imagine how thankful I was when the new Idea Book came out and CTMH now has Kraft cardstock! Yay!!

Not sure if I will win the prize but oh well! I had fun and am quite happy of my cards and that is all that matters. Though if I do win, I will not complain!
