Forget the fireworks....



















I just wanna stamp! LOL. Just kidding. We are going to go to a bbq and then fireworks today but it is tempting to stay home and stamp. teehee. I'm hoping to do a whole lot more of this this weekend. I just wanna play! Wah!

I LOVE the new In Colors more than the other two years' worth! The first card is the Bugs and Kisses stamp set using all of the new In Colors. It's fun to stamp the bugs in new colors.

The second card is using the new Level 2 hostess stamp set, Deer Friends. I knew I was going to love this set as soon as I saw it! It's in the same style as the Halloween one and I love that one. I used the new Bella Rose designer paper for the gingham background paper. Here is the recipe for the rest:

Stamps: Deer Friends, Warm Words
Ink: Robin Hood Red, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Robin Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Bella Rose dp
Other: 1" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, circle scallop punch, scallop edge punch, paper piercer, stampin' dimensionals, blender pen, crystal effects

Happy 4th of July everyone!

Awesome cards! Love the Bugs images with the new colors and the polka dot paper! And your Christmas card with that check paper is so warm and cozy and homespun looking!

I second your motion! Why can't my guests figure out I haven't had any time to stamp and go home... LOL!! Maybe this afternoon - I love the cards you've created with your new stuff - so really - you love these colors more than the other in colors? I'm surprised - I don't think I can love any colors more than these past in colors. But maybe I'll change my mind once I get them. Your cards are fabulous!!
