Mega Stampin’….

Okay, I’m a little late with these few more cards…..but better late than not at all, right!?

Here are a few of my favorites, I hope you enjoy them…

Card #10 — Bugs & Kisses!

This is a fun little card for kids….big or little!  You can easily make it a happy birthday card, or there’s a cute little stamp in the set that says ‘Cute As A Bug’

Colors are Real Red, Old Olive, Pacific Point and Whisper White


Card # 11 -Amour

We did this card at our Catalog Kick-off back in August….it’s such a nice card, I thought it would be worth adding here.  Simple but classy!  🙂

Colors are Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzaz and Very Vanilla


Card #12 – Kimono Kids

I love the way this card turned out….I saw the color scheme somewhere else and used my own layout and went with it.  So much fun!!

Colors are Poppy Parade, Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Whisper White.


Card #13 — Morning Cup

‘a morning without coffee… like sleep’ — need I say more?

Colors are Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Baja Breeze and Whisper White

Patchwork with the Top Note Die……

I love this technique!

Start with a piece of cardstock 5″x 3-3/4″.

Using the 1-1/4″ square punch, punch 12 squares from various printed papers.

Use the 2 way glue pen to adhere the squares to the larger cardstock. (This way the corners won’t lift once the piece has been die cut.

Line the “quilt square” upside down on the Top Note Die, pay close attention to the points, the measurements are close.

With a Stampin’ Write Marker, make small “x” stitching lines.  I went over the dotted out line with the marker as well.

On this quilt square, I put it through the big shot once more with a texturz die, to give it a little more of a “quilt” look.
