The Season of Change

Let's Ink It Up is a new challenge blog that requires participants to use only rubber or acrylic stamps (i.e: no digi's).  Their first challenge is to make any type of card using actual stamps and make sure it has some 'yellow' in it.

I bought a new Studio G $1.00 stamp at Michael's this week and thought it would be perfect for some Fall cards.  I also picked up some Studio G $1.00 flock (which is perfect for me because I'm not sure I'll actually use it much, so I didn't want to spend a lot of $$). 

So here's the first card with the flock:

Then I decided to make one with Martha Stewart glitter in Fall colors:
I used my Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder and another Studio G acrylic stamp for the sentiment on a Sizzlits tag die.

So, for quick cards - this stamp worked pretty well!

We're off to Louisana for a few days.  I set up a blog post for tomorrow for the final Stamping Bella Week 4 Challenge, but other than that - the blog will have a little break!

One last thing - Check out this AWESOME pencil carvings I came across yesterday on the Moxie Fab World blog: Pencil Carvings   Now - that takes some time and patience I tell ya!!!

Have a great day (and week)!
