Let's Go Card

I'm having fun learning to use my new Scan N Cut2.  On this card it cut out the three stamped bicycle images.  For the rainbow I used watercolor crayons by Staedtler and blended with water.  I lightly brushed glitter Mod Podge over the rainbow.  I added colored brads in the colors of the rainbow for a clean and simple card.  These bicycles are riding into the following challenges:

Love To You On Your Birthday Card

The pretty floral stamp on this card was given to me during the Scrapbook Expo (in Duluth, Georgia) in one of the classes I took.  I couldn't wait to get home and get it inked up.  Did you notice what a good job I did cutting it out?  I'm messing with you.  I am the proud new owner of a ScanNCut2 and it came in Saturday.  This was one of the first things I scanned and cut with it.  I was immediately in LOVE with this machine after my first scan and cut of a stamped image!  I'm going to be sending these flowers to play in the following challenges:

Happiness Grows Card

I came home from the Scrapbook Expo (in Duluth, Georgia) with the twelve new colors of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink pads.  Woo hoo!  I used Twisted Citron and Pickled Raspberry along with the older colors of Broken China and Spiced Marmalade to create the background on the stamped tree (plus strip under circle).  I colored the tiny hearts on the tree with alcohol makers.  I also put "dot dabs" of glitter Mod Podge on the tree using a large headed stylus.  This happy rainbow tree is going to be linking up at the following challenges:

Floral Celebrate Card

I love floral layering stamps.  Today's card is done with a pretty set from Hampton Art.  I used my stamp positioner to get the floral images lined up (what did we do before this marvelous invention?).  I tried to get this posted when I finished it but was running behind.  Had a girl's night out planned with my youngest daughter to see a movie.  So here I am posting nearly at midnight....picture me with toothpicks keeping my eyes open.  (Wink.)  These pretty posies want to play in the following challenges:

Let's Go To The Fair Card

I got to attend the Scrapbook Expo in Duluth, Georgia a few days ago.  I went with friends and we had the best time!  We took classes and shopped, shopped, shopped!  I couldn't wait to get in my craft room and play with new inks, stamps and more crafty goodies bought at the Expo.  I came home fired up to get inky and creative!  Marker Pop has a challenge with the theme of "Let's Go To The Fair."  This one had me baffled until I remembered a stamp set by Glitz Design which has a Farris Wheel.  How perfect is that!  I'm linking this card up to the following challenges:
