Hi all, nothing stamped today I am afraid BUT I did have my blog rated and I had to laugh because it was rated PG - and here are the reasons why:
This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:
punch (9x)
drugs (1x)

Oooookkkkkkaaaaayyyyy.....I guess I better be careful what I say. Punch - who knew??!! And the "d" (can't spell it out because they will count it again - HAH!) word, well I think the ones doing the rating are the ones using them - LOL! Anyway, as a fun add-on, I put the little icon they sent me on the right side of my blog. So, if you want to figure out what YOU are rated, click on the icon, enter your blog address and it will tell you! Have a good one!

Good morning! I told myself I was going to use a different stamp set but Oh, I love this baroque stamp set, and the new paper! So, I had to make another card! I don't think I will be getting much stamping done because I really hurt my back - doc says I tore the muscles in my lower right back and gave me all kinds of good stuff to take. It has been a slow couple of days, I can tell you that! Anyway, here is the card, I hope you like it!
Recipe: (all products SU!)
Paper - purely pomegranate, river rock, brocade background
Stamps - Baroque Motifs
Accessories: wild wasabi and black stazon inks, three for you punch, large oval punch, dimensionals, corner rounder, vintage brads, and certainly celery ribbon

Okay, I made another flower card - for someone who says she does not like all the flowery stuff, I sure have been making a lot of these - LOL! BUT, they really are fun to do and I really like the way this one turned out! I actually even used non-SU! on this one, which I normally don't do but could not help it this time. I found the cutest ribbon at Michaels in the dollar bin and had to have it - so I used it here! I also used some lime green stickles to highlight my flower stem and leaves - I love stickles and wish SU! would come out with something like them - maybe next catalog, huh?! But for now, this is what I have - of course, I paperpierced again - I really love that and I find it very relaxing to do! I hope you like it as much as I liked making it! Have a great day!

Good morning all! I love the fact that Beate publishes a sketch challenge so that we can all learn to expand our creativity. I thought this one was a lot of fun and will probably do a lot more using this layout BUT here is the one I would like to submit for the challenge: I can't seem to get enough of any of the doodle sets! I think they are sooo much fun to play with that my other poor stamps are sitting on the shelves being neglected! I am going to have to change that....but for now, this is what I used to make this card! Base of the card and accent pieces are Taken With Teal, and the two layers are Gable Green and Groovy Guava - I think they really complement each other and love the effects! I stamped the base layer with the small flower from double doodles using the same color ink. I used my ticket punch on both layers and stamped the green layer with the little flower in the baroque motifs set. I used the large doodle from that set on the guava layer. To complement the color schemes, I stamped both of these layers using the matching ink pads. Then, I stamped the large flower from the Doodle This Set onto Taken with Teal in the same color ink, cut them out, highlighted them in the matching stampin write marker, and popped them up on dimensionals. The sentiment is from the label punch set and is stamped in black stazon and popped up on dimensionals. Then, because no card is complete without a little bling *wink*, I added some glitter using two way glue. You can see it on the little flowers in the background, the doodle, AND of course on the large flower petals and center. I had a lot of fun making this card and like the way it turned out. Hope you all enjoy! Have a fantastic rest of the weekend!
