A few of My Favorite Things

We didn't have any cards to share with you from our readers this week.  That's ok...there will be another challenge starting tomorrow.  Melissa and I will be heading out the door early and going to Northern California for a Scrapbook Expo.  In the meantime...I thought I would share a few of my favorite cards I made this week.

I really like the style of the vintage camera in Vintage Treasures.  It really goes well with the sentiment "you make me smile" from Fabulous Phrases.  I uses one of the Spellbinders blossoms behind the camera...not sure what it's called...I'll have to look it up when I have time.

Another simple sketch using the Vintage Treasures set and the sentiment from Be Stylish.

This uses one of the stamps from the Butterfly Set.  I stitched a little ribbon for something different.

Using the same butterfly as accent, I used a flower from the Asian Floral set.  The light green card stock is embossed with birds and swirls from Cuttlebug.  I used watercolor pencils for my coloring.

Finally...I knew fall was coming and thought I would show off a couple of ideas for some fall themes.  The first uses a simple sketch with accent leaves and brads to make the stamps stand out.  Fall Harvest along with Pumpkin and Corn were used on both cards...adding Indian Corn to the last card.  I have a leaf punch from Marvy...but I think this would be so cool with the Spellbinders dies...especially using the different sizes and having the edges embossed.  I'm going to have to have them now...and try this card again.  I stamped each leaf with a different stamp and added some shading with distress inks.

That was my week of stamping...now I have to go clean my disheveled tables and floor...yes...I made a mess of the floor too.

You can find these stamps and so much more at The Rubber Cafe online store.
