More Pink Cat Studio Cards

I can't tell you just how much I am enjoying this Dress up Lily set. I'm sure after a few more days you will start to realize that I can't seem to get enough of it. I still have lots of ideas floating around that I am looking forward to trying. I think Lily will make great little girl birthday cards. This card was made with paper scraps (yep I'm a saver) and embellishments that I've had for so long that I can't begin to tell you what company they came from.

I have to say that I am really excited about this stamp set. It's called Dress up Lily and is made by Pink Cat Studio. Lily is adorable and comes with so many accessories. There is also a boy version to the stamp set "Dress up Billy" that I don't have yet but is on my ever growing wish list. And if that is not enough there are other Lily and Billy sets and accessory sets. The possibilities are endless. For my first Pink Cat Studio card I put the focus on Lily but plan to make many more cards using some of the fun accessories like angel wings, wands, etc. Fun times ahead.

Unity Swap

Here are the cards that I made for the Unity card swap I participated in. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to make them. I was up until the wee hours of the morning trying to come up with something. I have to say that although I felt rushed I do like how they turned out.

Bahama Mama

I knew it wouldn't take me long to follow the moose tracks and to create another card using Hanna Stamps. I really love coloring Hula Sophie as much as I do Riley. I found this Creative Imaginations patterned paper and saw the possibilities right away. I hope you are starting to enjoy the moose as much as I am.

Veggie Patch

This stamp set goes way back 2003. Its a long retired Stampin Up set that was part of the definitely decorative collection. I don't recall the name as its a set that I do not own. A friend of mine stamped the images for me so all I had to do was assemble. Needless to say it was a very quick and easy card to do. I was limited on supplies at the time so I kept it very simple and plan on building its complexity later today *fingers crossed*

Stamps: Stampin Up
Paper: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla
Ink: Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: SU Striped Ribbon

Here's my favorite little monkey Chantigo playing golf. I found this great patterned paper from Adornit. I love the bright and cheery colors. The golf ball was part of the pattern on the paper. I just cut it out using my large SU circle punch.

OK I decided to add a sentiment to the blue Chantigo Bouquet card that I made last week. I also decided to make the same card with pink paper rather than blue. Here it is:

The image is from Stampendous and is part of the Fluffles collection. You should see the new stamps they just released. They will definitely put you in the mood for Halloween and Christmas.

Pink Blossoms

I finally have a card to share. Its my 5 minute or less card. Here's the secret: The two step stamping was done for me by a fellow Wish-Raker (thanks kchase). All I had to do was trim the image, add a double mat and add some ribbon. It can't get any easier than that.

The image is from Stampin Up and is recently retired. I believe I have found my the stamp set that I wish I had purchased. I usually have one of those per year. I still to this day regret not getting Fishy Friends when that was available.

Blossoms abound
