These two cards were made using the Elements of Style stamp set in the Summer Mini. I stamped with versamark and then black embossing powder then colored them with markers and a aqua painter. The colors are regal rose and old olive and ballet blue in the second one. Gorgeous stamp set with several options for your own style, from classic to vintage. Be sure to check it out in the new Summer Mini.
You can't forget about Grandma and Grandpa. Here is a card I made using real red, going gray and vanilla cs and stamped with the pedaling past (summer mini set) and let the fun begin stamp sets. Sorry for the blurr, I haven't figured out how to get that out yet. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment on the large oval. This is a simple and quick card for any occasion. Click on the mini catalog below and it will take you to the summer mini so you can preview it. Don't hesitate, it is only here until August 31.

Looking ahead at my May classes to make fathers day cards, here is a card that I made using some of the retiring items. This one is on Kraft cs with the Log Cabin smooch spritz and old olive, really rust and vanilla cs. I stamped the tree from Lovely as a Tree set and the sentiment from Let the Fun Begin set. I also smooched the frame from the vanilla hodgepodge. Then I used my heat tool to set the spray quicker. It worked great. I think I am going to try it in the other colors and see what effect I get. I just love this smooch, it added a great touch to your projects. Cannot wait to start showing it.
Here is a retirement card I made using the Branch Out (retired) and Peddling Past sets. On ruby red and old olive cs. You cannot see it but I stamped the inside with the "Happy Retirement" stamp from Let the Fun Begin set. One set I missed for so long. Goes to show that sometimes you never see all that Stampin' has to offer.

A couple more cards with the Vintage Vogue set. Love this one also. Hope you like. Decided to use some of the vanilla hodgepodge frames I have been keeping for whatever reason, who knows. I think they have a name for that. lol

A couple cards I made using the Ribbon of Hope stamp and shades of pink.
Here is a card I made using some of the pink scraps I have extra. I used I (Heart) Hearts set and several different pink inks. Hope you like it.
I really like this card but I am so sorry for the blurr. I don't know what happened this time. It's on ww, so saffron, and bouquet bunch and one of a kind stamp sets. Simple but cute.
Here is a neat card that would be a great fathers day card. It will be here before we know it. It is on vanilla and choc chip cs. I stamped the motorcycle image then smooched with the log cabin spray. I love this smooch. I used the one of a kind stamp set and added 3 eyelets. Hope you like it.
This card was a quick one with very little stamping. I used papers from the welcome neighbor DSP pad, scallop punched mellow moss layer and stamped with the Peddling Past stamp set. Love this set. Quick and easy.
Here is another try at the black magic technique. I am trying to use up some of my discontinued papers, so I used lovely lilac splattered with the spritzer and lilac marker and ww cs and satin ribbon. Sentiment from another source.
This card I made from regal rose and vanilla cs and I used mostly vintage stencil. I sponged regal rose ink in the center then creamy caramel and choc chip around the outer edge of the stencil. Tore the edges and sponged them with choc chip. Added vanilla satin ribbon and a half pearl from the pretties kit. Then smooched all with vanilla. No sentiment, couldn't decide what to do from here. Maybe you can give me ideas.
Here is a different angle so hopefully you can see the shimmer from the vanilla smooch spritz on the front of the card. I love this smooch spritz, have I mentioned that before? LOL
