Playing With New Toys!!!

So hubby found out that I went shopping for stamps...AGAIN...and so he gave me an ultimatum...in order for me to buy new stamps...I MUST ink the new ones as soon as they got here! So being a compliant wife...ahem...I did! Here are the cards I made with "some" of my new toys. I've still got more toys to ink up.

This one here was made as a CASE from the PaperTreyInk gallery made by Debbie Olson. The changes I made were the colors and card base. I also stamped in darker ink what is stamped inside the larger of the circles instead of adding brads. I love this new set! If you wana pick this one up, it's called Spiral Bouquet.

CS: BBayou, SSky, & White NON SU
Ink: BBayou, White craft, SSky, & OOlive
Stamps: Spiral Bouquet
Embellishments: ribbon & brad
Others: Circle Coluzzle, Giga scalloped punch, Mega scalloped punch, & paper piercer

This one is also from PaperTreyInk...I LOVE the versatility of their sets and LOVE how they come in the CD cases. It's also another case! I know...I'm not being original, but my muse is somewhere comfy where ther is NO RAIN! This set is called Out On A Limb and it is beautiful! This card was CASE'd from the PTI gallery as well from Nichole Heady. I think I MURDERED it...lol. Still...I like it! It looks serene and clean with not too many layers...something I'm trying to step back out of.
CS: PPom, GGuava, & White NON SU
Ink: C2Cocoa, PPom, & GGuava
Stamps: Out On A Limb
Embellishments: ribbon (dyed with GGuava ink)
Others: N/A

Now this on here is a bit different from any card I've made! This one reflects who I am. Who am I...a rock loving, tattoo bearing, rock 'n rollin' chick! This card was made with stamps from 2 different companies. The gal is from Rubbernecker.com by Stamp Oasis from the Aussie Girls collection. No, I know I'm NOT Aussie...lol...but dangit, who am I to NOT purchase such lovely looking stamps! Plus, I was looking for a stamp that "resembles" me for a swap. This was as close as I could get...although I WISH I had this gals body! LOL! The sparrow stamps & banner are from Bombshell Stamps...if you haven't checked them out...you MUST! Especially if you're a "50's tattoo" person. They even have tattoo ink to stamp your body!!! I called this card Hate That I Love You! Now to make 6 more of these for the swap!! YOUCH!!!
CS: PPom & White NON SU
Ink: Black Staz-On & Prismacolor Pencils
Stamps: Monique by Stamp Oasis & Love & Luck by Bombshell Stamps
Embellishments: NONE
Others: Snips scissors, gamsol, stumps, & blender

Great cards. I love the blue one on top. I should make that a challenge for myself, as I have been buying quite a few sets and I haven't used them yet. :0)
