I STAMPED!!!!!!!

Yea!!!! I finally got back in the groove. I received my first order of stamps from GinaK last week and have just been looking at them and dreaming about what wonderful cards they would make. I just couldn't put them to paper for some reason....well maybe the head ickies had something to do with it. Tonight I broke through the block and made one of the cards I've been dreaming up. I have fallen in love with door cards (gate cards?)

I needed to make a birthday card for a friends 9 year old grand daughter and this is what I did.

The front stamp is from GinaK's stamp set for a cause How Sweet It Is. The cake stamp didn't quite fit in the Super Jumbo Marvy Circle Punch so I just punched off part of the plate. The scalloped circle is the Marvy Mega Punch. I used Mellow Moss as the base card stock and a retired DSDP I can't find the name. The closure is Mellow Moss Checked Gingham Ribbon.

Open the card and inside is the cute kangaroo from Just So Hoppy by Melanie Muenchinger for GinaK.
I love this set. If you want to see more that can be done with it check out Melanie's BLOG.

I used Prisma Markers to do the coloring on both the stamps and since I didn't like the pure white background behind the stamps I used a dauber and lightly sponged a little ink there.

So this is what I did. Hopefully tomorrow will bring more fun!
