Here are my projects & stamp sets! I hope they inspire you as well!


I thought this stamp set would only be good for layouts. Boy was I wrong it is great for cards and tags too! Take a peak!
This birthday card I was inspired by a You Tube video from Melissa. Check it out HERE!
The circles are stamped from this set as well as the rectangle speech bubble.

Close up of the circles. Can you see the star embossing?

 It is a really easy card and you can change it up to make it yours for sure! Also all of these pieces is from my scraps!

My next project was a really cute gift tag worthy for any Super Hero!
This speech bubble adds dimension with its shape. I feel it adds a touch of movement too.

I just love this paper from Close To My Heart. I think the bear from the Cricut Teddy Bears on Parade worked great with this! The Speech Bubble is really cute and I think goes well with the Super Hero theme. The "#1" is also from A Creative Journey with Melissa. It is Everyday Alphabet Outline Symbols & Numbers.

My last project for this stamp set is featuring one of my nephews Ryder. I love this little guy. These pictures are a few years old 2009. His dad outfitted his Power Wheels!

The "P" "O" "W" is stamped from Everyday Alphabet Outline Upper & Lower Case which is a great set and really universal. It is one of my go to sets.

My next stamp set has already been released. It is Weather Related. Some of my projects have already been released but not on my Blog.
My first project, that was not featured yet, was my niece (Ryder's sister) Izzy. She was about 2 at the time and we had her for the weekend. She loved playing on our trampoline.

Isn't it adorable that close up of her face? I colored in the sun with my Wink pen as well as her letters for her name. Again I used the Everyday Alphabet Outline Upper & Lower Case. Told you I love this set.
My next project is using my paper I bought from HSN & I am sure you can tell it is by Teresa Collins! Seriously her paper is so yummy!

The umbrella and the raindrops are both from the stamp set. The raindrops are with CTMH Midnight ink and the Umbrella was colored in with Chameleon pen blue. All that color is from one pen! 

The umbrella, rain drops & "Under the weather?" is all from the stamp set. I colored in the umbrella using my Chameleon Pens. I only used two of the colors the grey and the blue!

My next project is a cute Sunshine card!

This paper is from Kaisercraft. Isn't it just yummy???? The black and yellow cardstock is just from my scrap pile. I stamped the sun on two different sheets of paper...the yellow cardstock and the grey and white. I then cut the center out of the grey and white and put it in the center of the cut out yellow sun.


Here is the blog hop order:

**Brandie**You are here

So here are my 2 stamp set projects. Take a real good look at A Creative Journey with Melissa web site. It is a great site for inspiration and projects. Also all her stamps are designed by her and made in the USA! The stamps are easy to use and no "seasoning" them. Just stamp! Nice, clear and beautiful!
