I was definitely thinking of Spring when I made this card using the Stella and Angus Music to my Ears stamp. I was worried that my background green was too bright with the yellow, so I used my Love Words stamp to darken the background just a bit, and then I stamped my sentiment from the Sweet Kitty stamp set. I coloured Stella and Angus with my Copic Markers and added a couple of Prima Flowers and some bright fun brads.
I can't wait to see what fun things that Melissa is discovering at CHA! Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Hi folks! Hope you had a lovely weekend. I’ve been following friends blogging from CHA, and wow, we have a lot of niiiice stuff coming our way this spring! Like new Valentine’s stamps from The Rubber Café. Here is one with Angus trying to show off for Stella (and seems to do a pretty good job too)!
It’s called I Flip for You and awwww, they are CUTE! Nothing like turtle love…
Have a great week!

I stamped this gorgeous image from The Rubber Cafe called Iris onto white cardstock and colored with my copics. I actually looked up images of Irises on the computer to get the coloring just so. Then I cut it out with my oval nesties. My dp is all DCWV and my sentiment is from Sweet Kitty. Then I finished this off with a little ribbon from stash and a few crystals. What do you think?So on another note, as I am preposting this post I am watching an entertainment program and they are talking about the Octomom and how she is back in her bikini looking better than ever. They say she works out 3 yes THREE hours a day and is on a strict diet. I cant get in an hour workout with 2 kids and she have that clan and works out "3" hours a day. What is wrong with this picture!!! LOL
Hope you have enjoyed your visit here today. If you want, you can also find me at my blog at www.stampwithme-ann.blogspot.com. Thanks for stopping by!!

You might already know that I am in love with The Rubber Café Labrador. If you don’t know, I can tell ‘ya! I love the Lab! And the new valentine set Labrador Love is NO exception. These puppies are the cutest ever! I stamped the lab twice, first on the card base, then a second time on watercolor paper. I colored it and cut it out and adhered it on top of the first stamp. Why stamp twice? Well, I didn’t want the fuss to cut out the antennas. The sentiment is from the awesome Just My Type set.
I got the stamps one week ago, and I’ve been playing some this last week and here are a couple of cards that I’ve blogged on my own blog already. But you might not read it, so I thought I’d share.

I started with stamping this typewriter image twice - one to color and one to use for cutting. I colored this with various copic markers and added a little shine to the keys with a black glaze pen from sakura. The fun part of this card was attaching the sheet of paper and popping up the outer edges to make it appear it's ready to be pulled of the machine. Inside I've written "in all the right ways" since it will be going to my hubbie for Valentines day.
Have a fantastic weekend and thanks for looking!

To make this card, I started out by stamping the Carousel Horse on Neenah 110 lb paper in Versafine Onyx Black Ink, then sprinkled on clear embossing powder and let my heat gun do its job. I have found that with images that have a lot of detail, the embossing helps to keep the ink in the right place. Once the image was coloured, the rest of the card just fell into place rather nicely. And my sentiment, Many Thanks, was the perfect fit!

It’s about time to put the Holiday stamps away for a couple of months… But while at it I decided to make a card where I combined my personal three favorite Rubber Café Holiday Stamps. Let me present my top three list: The Snowman from the Baby it’s cold outside set, the Labrador and the Penguin from the Winter Fun Labrador set.The design is really simple, the focus is on the masked image. I added some glittery white fun flock on the dog’s hat and on the snow to make it more interesting. The Christmas line is great since it is so versatile. Many of the images can be used to anything winter related, not only to Holiday Greetings.
And while at it, I did a real quick birthday card for my son’s friend who will have his party next weekend. On this one I used one of the cute penguins from the Penguin Trio. I think he looks like he’s on a party mood! The background is stamped with the Elegant Snowflake Border.
Have a fab week all!

First, I stamped my blue, green and white papers with a light blue ink and my It's A Blizzard Outside stamp (I love this one, can you tell?) and then I stamped the Penguin Trio and coloured it in. I really like how they turned out in grey...penguins aren't always black, right?! What's especially fun about this card is that I used my Corner Rounder Punch to make the scallops...if you have the kind where you can take off the guide, it works beautifully
My layout is courtesy of Sketch Saturday's Sketch #82. I left out a few pieces, but it was my original inspiration. I'm not sure that this would be used as a holiday card, but more of a note card. Like when I send the cheque to the nice woman who cleaned my parents house before they returned from Florida.
