Boho Square

Another quickie for you today. We made this card at one of my previous Stamp Camps. It's hip to be square! (I crack myself up :)

The card base is a 4-1/4 square piece of Old Olive stamped with the same color ink with the Stitched background stamp. The colored squares (Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, and Regal Rose) are stamped with 2 of the Boho Background stamps and then punched out with a 1 inch square punch. They are layered together on a piece of textured Old Olive cardstock. The flower is punched from the 5-petal flower punch. So easy! The color combination came from the 'trendy' color combos SU! highlights in the beginning of the catalog. It could be changed up with pretty much anything! So many possibilities!

I'm excited tonight to be starting another Stamp Club. I have so many other stamps and products that I would love to share with my stamping buddies, and they seem to be just as excited to be shared with! Have a great night!

Ahoy Little Sailor!

I'm back with another card! I'm on a roll!

I made this card for a co-worker of mine who had a little boy not too long ago. I love this little boat from PTI's
Bitty Baby Blessings!

The card base is Real Red, followed by a layer of Brocade Blue that has been embossed with the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder. The horizontal strip is Night of Navy, and I added some faux stitching with my paper piercer and white gel pen. The little boat image is paper pieced from Sahara Sand, Brocade Blue (that had been stamped with the Polka Dot Basics stamp set) and Real Red. This was layered onto PTI SS White and then Sahara Sand. The card measures 4-1/4 square. The cutie sentiment is also from Bitty Baby Blessings stamped in Brocade Blue ink. Easy, simple card! Thanks for stopping by!
