This card was created for my sister Emily's birthday. She is the baby of our family and she is "STINKIN" spoiled. Regardless, we are the best of friends and I wouldn't trade her or my older sister for any amount of wealth in this world. (Well maybe a couple of good stamp sets. Just kidding!) For this card I used the Stinkin' Cute stamp set, Baroque Motifs stamp set, Sage Shadow, Certainly Celery, Outlaw Designer Series Paper, and Whisper White cardstock. I also used the On Board Blossoms and Basics. I just love these. The stamp pads that were used for this project were Really Rust, Soft Sky, River Rock, and Sage Shadow. I first stamped my skunk in Really Rust and then used the "pad to paper" technique with the Soft Sky, River Rock, and Sage Shadow. I used the Outlaw paper for the petals and center of the flower. They were adhered to the paper and then cut out. The edges were then sanded using a Stampin' Up! sanding block to make them smooth and to give them a rustic look. Using Chocolate Chip, I stamped the "Big Stinkin Deal" on the center. Well, the petals looked a little plain so I used the Chocolate Chip Craft pad. stamped the swirls from the Baroque Motifs set and applied a little silver embossing powder. Ohh... Ahhh... I loved the results. I used the Sage Shadow as the base and the Outlaw Designer Series paper on top. Next, I mounted the skunk image over the Certainly Celery and added a strip from the same Designer Paper. This was then mounted to the card and the flower was constructed and mounted. This card is just like her "Stinkin Cute".
I enjoy sharing my love of rubberstamping.

I created this card for my mother whose birthday is Sunday. I love these colors and I especially love this stamp set. I used the True Friend, Season of Joy, and the Party Punch sets from Stampin' Up!. I Used Blue Bayou cardstock as the base, Soft Sky (first layer), Designer Series Paper (second and third layer),Certainly Celery, Whisper White,and Really Rust. Stampin' Write Markers, 1 3/8" circle punch, Ticket Corner punch, Stampin Dimensionals, Vintage Brads, Brocade Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, and Scallop Circle Punch were also used in this project. I am not going to leave the dimensionals for this project because I forgot to re-measure the card once I had finished. You know how you'll start with one size and then decide that maybe you should cut off more. Yeah that was me. Sorry.
