This first card uses this SUPER CUTE little guy trying to kick a football from the stamp set "Play Day". It is one of my FAVORITE sets and I hope that they NEVER retire it!!
The stamp for this 2nd card is actually retired (GASP!!). I am not sure how I let this one slip past me...Maybe because I purchased it and...oh...NEVER used it till NOW! Well, I guess it is still a CUTE little bus regardless of whether it is retired or not! LOL
Moving on to a CURRENT stamp! This Birthday sentiment comes from Just a Number and is STILL available to purchase! lol
Convention is ALWAYS an exciting time for us CTMH consultants and this convention was NO exception!! BUT when they announced that they were bringing back some of Jeanette's classic stamps that she hand drew back when she was first getting started...I think the roof about came off the building from all of the squeals that came from us consultants!! I could NOT wait to get my hands on these sweet hand drawn stamp sets!! This stamp is called Birthday Cheer and was SO much fun to color in!! Check out the Liquid Applique with Prisma Glitter on that cake! YUM!!
Last, but NOT least....The stamps used on this final card is available ONLY to the Hostess with the Mostess!! This is the first time that CTMH has discounted stamp sets and made them for those who host their own party! Check out the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book & Catalog for more details on how YOU can get YOUR very own EXCLUSIVE stamp set!!
IF you live in the Omaha, NE area and would like to make these cards...check out my Meetup.com/jensscrappypages group for more details on class dates and times! If you cannot make the class that is scheduled, you can purchase a PRE-CUT and PRE-STAMPED kit.
Hope that this has inspired you to think outside of the box when it comes to ALL of your paper crafting and card making!!
Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!
