New 40:31 Creations Stamps!! --- late post

****Update: Unfortunately the 40:31 Creations design team had to come to an end. Lauren is a busy lady and was unable to continue on with her stamp adventure. Let's hope that she will be able to pick it up again later, she's got some great talent! Good Luck Lauren!

Hi Everyone,

As this is posting we are currently closing on our first house and started to paint and move. Not to mention yesterday we got a new puppy! (English Mastiff)  I know, we're crazy!!!

But I'm excited to share a card with you that I made using 2 of the new 40:31 Creations stamps! Here is a picture of the 2 new stamp sets:

Now, onto my card. I have to admit this was a pretty fast card. All of my scrapping stuff was just about packed when I found out we were getting new stamps to play with!  I also appologize for the pictures, my camera cord was packed so I had to take pictures on my phone!

I made this card with the JT Imagine cartridge that I just got for my birthday. My parents are HUGE motorcycle fans, so this image is perfect for them. I know I will be busy for a while, so I decided to make it into a Fathers Day card and use the "#1 Dad" and "its your day" stamps.  I was also tempted to just have it say "Enjoy the Moment".... sooo many good stamps on these sets!!!  The image was cut at 3.5" true size, which turned out to be a bit big, but I decided to just go with it! Needless to say, it is really long so the card base measures 4"x8.5"!!!!!  It's pretty big, yet I really like it!

The background paper is a piece of Bazzill Dotted Swiss paper.

I hope this helps get you in the mood for Father's Day projects!  
Now head on over to 40:31 Creations to see how to order your stamps!

Mother's Day Cards

Hello Everyone!

Today I have 2 Mother's Day cards to share with you. It's ok that I'm posting early, we celebrated Mothers day early with our moms :)

The first card I decided to attempt my first paper rosette. Super simple, love it! If you're not familiar with them, there are TONS of helpful videos on YouTube! The paper was from a stack I have, I appologize I'm not sure which one and I recently packed up my scrapbook room to move to our first house so I can't look :(  The stamp is from My Pink Stampers "Happiest Moments" stamp set.

The next card is my favorite card that I have made in a LONG time. And I made it after having worked 12 hours and only sleeping for about 3 hours afterwards!! Maybe I work better tired!

The little chickie is cut from Create a Critter at 3.5" I added a little gem to the flower in her hair just for some flair. The paper is just something I've had in my scrap bin. For the ribbon I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to get the ruffled look, love it!!  I used the same stamp from MPS "Happiest Moments" stamp set.

Hope this gives you a little inspiration if you still have Mother's Day gifts to work on!
Have a great day!!
