And...another two


I don't know what's gotten into me, but whatever it is, I love it!  I've been crafting like crazy!  And having so much fun.  Here's are a few more cards for you to see  :)

Card #1:

I actually made this one a few weeks ago but forgot to post it.  I stamped it with my Momento Luxe inks - seriously, I love that ink - and also some new Savvy stamps I got in my last order.  I honestly thought my wood block / rubber stamp days were pretty much over.  I'm definitely a clear stamp kind of girl.  But when I saw these stamps, I couldn't resist - just thought they were so pretty, and so versatile!  The sentiment is PS, and I added a little Studio Calico wood veneer heart under the bow.

Card # 2:

I made this for the Case This Sketch Challenge #58.  Here's the sketch it was based on:

I promised myself that I would start playing along with challenges again in the new year, but I'm happy to say that I've jumped the gun a bit.  I've already done some for this week's PS Sparks challenge (it's an Anything Goes!), and now CTS!  I used in image from my new Mama Elephant baby-themed set for this one.  Love that little teddy!  I dressed her up with a little Lawn Fawn heart, and a little bow on her head from PS Woofers and Tweeters.  The sentiment is also PS from Sentiment Sampler.

Hoping to spend even more time playing this week.  All of my Christmas shopping is pretty much done and aside from some baking and cooking (oh, and cleaning too :( ) that needs to be done, I should have a little extra time to sneak into my card room :)

Until next time, thank you for coming by!


  1. Girl! These card are so Awesome!!! Love the flowers on the first one and really love the second one as well! What an Adorable bear...the way you colored here, perfect!

  2. Squeal...that little teddy is sooo darling! You've coloured her beautifully and dressed her with flair. The wee heart and bow tooooooooo sweet! I'm calling winner on this perfect baby card! Your card of blooms: gorgeous!! One look at this is guaranteed to lift spirits, brighten a day and invite a huge, ear-to-ear smile! Well chosen purchase, my friend - pretty, versatile and in your hands, they've found a great home!! Memento luxe - making a note to add at least one colour to my order (wish they came in the multiples of mini packs!). I"m dithering over inks now: Memento dew drop sets or Hero Arts bubes (which I have - four colours - and they stain my stamps...eek!). Oh well, not like I need to decide today (but I want to!!). Your 'another two' dazzlers and delighters have made my day!! Off to work on the Care Bear card and one for my mom (talk about being behind the 8 ball!! Hope you're having an exceptional Sunday, that does not include cleaning. Chores are on my agenda for tomorrow, or maybe Tuesday morning, or....! Hugs~c

  3. Oh now how cute are these?! I'm with you on the wood mount stamps but there is something about those fantabulous Impress designs, eh? I totally get it.

  4. Sweet cards, Shannon! Love the flowers and the warm colors of the first, and I think you've got a winner with your little teddy card. Merry Christmas to you and yours! Bev

  5. These are so darn cute Shannon! Nice to see that you are getting some fun crafty time in! I'm basically running around in circles here, however I do think I am making progress. Merry Christmas :)

  6. Keep 'em coming, Shannon! You make the cutest cards, and you're certainly on a roll! I'm a big fan of WOOD and I have hundreds that I can't part with. You just can't beat the feel of a wood stamp in your hand!

  7. YES! Keep them coming, Shannon! LOVE these cards! I LOVE that first one-- gorgeous use of colors and design! LOOOOOOOVE that little banner! LOVE LOVE LOVE it all! LOVE that second card too-- that bear is colored perfectly! I must must MUST learn how to color ASAP!

    You rock! LOVE visiting here <3 TOTALLY inspired:) Now if only I could get in my studio and make something! LOL!

    Merry Christmas, Shannon <3

  8. Gorgeous florals!! That ink gives great coverage and I love your mass of open flowers. And what can I say about that little bear - she's darling! And I think you have done just right by her by making her the star of the card! Have a very Merry Christmas!! (And I hope you can find some time to do a little crafting!)

  9. I love both of these! The first is gorgeous with its layered stamping in those delish colors...the little wood heart is perfect! The second is flawless...layout, colouring, everything! So happy you're on a crafty roll! Can't wait to see more!

  10. Oh that little bear card is SOOOOOOO adorable!! Must have that little teddy! And how cute that you added the bow and the heart!! I LOVE!! The top card with the flowers is stunning!! Love the random way you stamped them!! So pretty!!
