The first card features some PaperTreyInk stamps. With all the excitement surrounding their new releases, I was inspired to pull out that Green Thumb stamp set I had had to have. I actually have some more plans now that I took it back out. I found that this Scenic Route paper went fantastically with it. It reminded me of that buggy texture. I used the middle sized stems in this set to make little hop marks.
The second card features some gel-a-tin stamps. The happy birthday set is such a fun one to use. I went with one of my favorite colour combinations- chocolate, pumpkin, teal, and olive. I stamped the presents on 1-3/8 size squares, then framed those on 1-1/2 squares. The bows are chocolate coloured, I see now that I didn't add quite enough brightness when I was editing my photo, oops!
My exciting news this past week was that I am one of SCS's newest "dirty girls". Being on the Dirty Dozen team was always a dream of mine. You know, one of those dreams that your REALLY never expected to happen! I cannot wait for all the different themes to "attack" these next few months.
