First up is a project using the latest series in the line of Wreath seasonal stamps, called the 4th of July Wreath.
I went clean and simple on this one...skipped out on the wreath and went right for that patriotic banner...just LOVE IT!! I stamped the image 3 times and then colored in with R29 and B39 Copics. Embellished it up with some twine, buttons, and rhinestones and stamped the perfect sentiment right at the bottom and called it done!! I will definitely be sending this card to my dad...he is one of the most patriotic men you will ever meet...retired USAF! :) Don't forget though, there is the wreath included in this Petite set that features 7 images and sentiments...and still coordinates with the Seasonal Wreath die.
Next up is a suuuuuper adorable farm set entitled, Green Acres. Check it out...
Green Acres is a full sized stamp set featuring 24 images...and let me tell you, there are some really witty sentiments in this one! It was illustrated by Doug Applegate with the Apple Doodle Ink line of stamps....same illustrator that creates those adorable penguins! :) I used the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety (on sale for only $2.95!!!!) paper pack on my card because the adorable images just called for adorable paper. :) I also used the new Chicken Wire/Woodgrain Impression plate (on my white layer) and I can't wait to use this plate more!!! Although it's difficult to see in the photo, the impression is nice and deep and defined...looks great! I also couldn't resist adding the cow from the KI Memories Puffies - Farm to my card! Because...if you party till the cows come home, surely you will see one flying, LOL!!! Seriously though, I just love this card (I totally am stamping a happy birthday greeting inside) and I know the kids are going to LOVE playing with this set.
Speaking of the kids....
Taylor has put together another fun and jam packed kit for the little Chefs in our lives!! This kit actually features a mini book, fun and bright patterned papers, coordinating cardstock, ribbon, and brads, and envelopes. My little Chef Harrison (7 years old) wanted to create 2 projects. We are heading to the beach this summer for a little vacation so he just HAD to use the new set A Day in Paradise! Here he is coloring the chairs with one of his favorite multi-colored pens on the card he made.
He was thrilled about putting his own minibook together. He cut out pieces of the patterned paper and made his book a "doodle book." He drew on some pages and wrote random thoughts on it. How creative he was doing this and he just loved every single second of it!!
And I can't leave out my other Tiny Chef Catie of the house! She created a GREAT card using the Kid at Heart set. And to be fair, I split the minibook in two and let her create her own little "scrapbook" for our trip to the beach. She did a LOT of stamping in that one, LOL! Here's her hard at work....
And both of them proudly displaying their finished projects. :)
Could those smiles be any bigger...seriously?! :) Well, except Catie's smirky smile....so much like her momma! ;)
I hope you have been thoroughly enjoying what you've seen so far!! There is plenty more to see though!! Please have a peek at the following blogs for even more inspiration!! (Also more Tiny Chefs...YAY!!!)
