Can you say AWESOME???

I just had to say that......last night at group that was the word of the night!  LOL  Really.....This stamp set that is new to the Summer Idea Book IS AWESOME!!  It is called You're Great and it is SUPER CUTE!! I am a sucker for a stamp set that has animals on it.....especially when it has the cutest sayings that go along with each animal......

I have not embossed in a while and this stamp set SCREAMED embossing!!  Maybe a bit of layering too.  Which animal do I start with??  The Gator of course!  Well, only because I wanted to use the papers and colors from the Creative Basics Cherry-O Collection and I thought that the gator would be cute stamped on the back of the dots paper.

I have SO much Close to my Heart stuff, that I am trying to use what I have....and it is A LOT!!  LOL  So, I pulled out my Winter Cozy Mini Medley and used a Sweet Leaf spiral and created a small tag to attach it to with my sentiment.  I also discovered that I still had some Chocolate ric rac left from the Ric Rac Collection.  What you see on the card is what I had left!  YAY  Now to use the rest of the colors......hhmmm

Here is an up close shot of Mr. Gator.  One other thing that I have not used in a while was my White Gel Pen.  So, using that I gave Mr. Gator some pearly whites and a bit of sparkle in his eyes!  I am always amazed at how the smallest of details make such a HUGE difference!

Well, Thanks SO much for stopping by and checking out my latest creation!  I LOVE it when I have visitors!!

I hope that I have inspired you to USE WHAT YOU HAVE!  You would be surprised at what you will find in the depths of your paper crafting stash........

Supplies used for this card are: 
Paper: Creative Basics Cherry-O Collection
Stamp: You're Great
Ink: Black Staz-on, Chocolate and White Gel Pen
Embellishments: Winter Cozy Mini Medley, Ric Rac Collection

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!

Jen that is a super cute little card! I love it! I am sooo not a card maker but I am inspired by your beautiful creations. Nicki & Lori have taught me how to stamp, heck maybe Nicki can even teach me how to make a cute card or two also :o)
