Scrappy Moms Stamps - Terrific Tuesday Challenge

Hi eveyone!  I hope you all had a wonerful weekend.  Ours was super busy....we picked up my daughter from camp (she loved it) and had a wedding to attend.  It's time for Scrappy Moms Stamps - Terrific Tuesday Challenge.  This week we are using the Stand and Salute cartridge.  If you are like me and do not own this cartridge you can you a similiar cut.

My card was super simple to make.  I cut the firework from Sweet Treats at 2.5".  I left off one of the layers because I wanted to be aple to see all the dots from the Echo Park paper.  The red and blue are from Dots and Stripes, the Metropolitan Collection and the background paper is from Little Boy.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps - Yankee Doodle Dandy.  I look forward to seeing all the great projects you guys come up with.  Click here to link up your project.

Scrappy Moms Stamps Sneak Peek #5 - What a Fun-gi!

Hi everyone!  I've got another cute card for you today using the newly release Scrappy Moms Stamps - Good Eats set.

These sentiments are all so fun!  I just love them. 
I cut my card base from Birthday Bash at 5"h.  The mushrooms are from Freshly Picked at 3" and then added a third mushroom that was cut at 2.88".   I decided to try my sewing machine on this card.  I've been browsing through Papercrafts magazine and just love all the stitching.  Of course, my first attempt was on a round card so I didn't get the sewing just perfect but I still love it!  The wood grain background paper is DCWV - The Playtime Stack. 

Scrappy Moms Stamps is still offering FREE SHIPPING!  Place your order before June 30th to take advantage!

Scrappy Moms Sneak Peak #4 -

Hi everyone!  Well, we got my daughter up to camp on Sunday and while it was not tear free as I had hoped, she did just fine.  She only shed a few tears as we said good-bye.  Me, on the other hand, cried like a big baby as soon as we got in the car to come home!

I have another card for you today using the new Scrappy Moms Stamps set - Yankee Doodle Dandy.

I cut the pie/rolling pin from Country Life at 3"and the background papers are from K and Company.

Scrappy Moms Sneak Peek #2 - Welcome Home

Hi everyone!  I hope you guys are all having a nice weekend.  We are busy here at our house getting my daughter ready for camp.  She goes tomorrow and this is her first year.  I'm not sure who is more nervous....her or me.  I've never been away from  my kids for more than a couple of nights.  I'm hoping for a quick and tearless good-bye tomorrow when we drop her off.....at least until we drive away and then I can cry!

I have a simple card I made with the new Scrappy Moms Stamps set Yankee Doodle Dandy.  These  are awesome and just in time for all your 4th of July projects!

I cut this pretty tree from Just Because at 11" and trimmed off the swing.  I used my D'vine Swirls embossing folder for the top and added a yellow bow.   The hill is part of an oval from George and Basic Shapes.   This card is super simple but I think it's cute.

The second new release for June is called Good Eats.....
I love every single single one of these.  I'll be back tomorrow with a card using this set.
Scrappy Moms is offering FREE SHIPPING from now until June 30th....so head on over to place your order today!

New Scrappy Moms Stamps!!!!!

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm so excited because today we begin sneak peeks for TWO new sets of Scrappy Moms Stamps.  For my card today, I used Good Eats....this set is just FABULOUS!  I just love it and had such a hard time deciding which sentiment I wanted to use first.

Here is my card....

I used my favorite paper pack of all time....K and Company, Carolyn Gavin.  I love this paper....I wish I could buy a whole stack of just this print!  The basket is from Pop-Up Neighborhood. It has apples with it but I cut that portion off and then cut some Create a Critter apples (hide contours to hide the face).  My card base is 4-1/2 x 6-1/4.  I have a whole box of A6 size envelpes so I've been doing a lot of cards this size.  The red cardstock is Bazzill Basics.  I love this card....the color combo is so bright and happy. 

Stop by tomorrow to see another cute card with the second new stamp set Yankee Doodle Dandy.  This is perfect for July 4th and for honoring all our Military heros.

Be sure to check out all the amazing projects from the rest of Scrappy Moms Design Team.

And our Guest Designer this month, Sandra.
