What fun I had creating this card! This stamp had sat lingering in my stash for nearly four years when I was inspired to ink it up for the SCS color challenge this week. These little mice had a feast on the party peanuts. Wonder if they saved room for the red and blue raspberry and olive dipped pearls for "dessert"?!? The background paper has been in my stash so long that I cannot remember the source, but maybe a Basic Grey Christmas line. The pennants were stamped with Versa Magic in Turquoise Gem and Tea Leaves and Brilliance in Rocket Red. The main Copic colors are R29, BG07 and YG95. I used YR20 on the peanuts and various shades of "E" for the skin and fur. Too many to list, I am not very specific when it comes to coloring, lol! As always, thanks for looking and please leave a comment, that way I can come share some love on your blog also!!

Pink Velvet

I stamped everything with distress ink in Victorian Velvet. The stamped image is from Inkadinkado. Used my ticket stub corner punch on main image.
Card made using Teresa Collins DP and Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Pendant die and Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares. Quick and easy for my stash that I can pull out and send on moment's notice. Used my green Corner Chomper with deco punch.

Thinking of You

Background on aqua was stamped with Versamark and then clear embossing powder. Stamp is large wheat grass stamp from Hero Arts. Hero Arts Manuscript Background stamp used with Thinking of You on top. Thinking of you stamp from Stampin Up circa 2001.

Simplicity in Purple

A simple thank you card for a co-worker that has helped me in my journey to learning a new job. The large flower stamp is by Stampendous. Thank you sentiment is Penny Black circa 2003.
Another bee card. This timed I used the honeycomb embossing folder. I wish you could see the detail on the white diecut beneath the bee. I used an EF that has little bees on it! View it on my Pinterest board to see it clearly. http://www.pinterest.com/jackaroojrt/inventory-embossing-folders/

Ink the Town Red

Last weekend I pulled out my stash and inked up stamps that had never seen ink before. One of those was my Hero Arts Large Blossom stamp. I inked it up and went to town with the red and white. The background paper was stamped with a flower from a Stampendous set. You can check out my Pinterest boards for specifics on stamps. http://www.pinterest.com/jackaroojrt/inventory-stamps/
