VC Rocks Card Blog Hop

Hi, did you make it through all of those blogs?  
Wow, that's a whole lot of stampin' goodness!
You have probably come from Pam's blog.
If you need to go back to the beginning, you can go to the VC Rocks blog.
The blog after mine is Loni's Life.

Sometimes it's the little things that make life great.  That's certainly true about this card.
I was inspired by the card on pg 104 of the Annual Catalog.  
(Pictures are not the best, mostly because I was just too lazy to make them better:))

I used Lovely Little Labels and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets.  The Labels are punched with the Little Labels Punch Pack.  I also used Summer Smooches DSP and Tangerine Tango ink.

For my second card, I really wanted to show off the new Natural Composition Specialty DSP.
 These papers are so natural looking on the backside and the front has this gorgeous raised print on it.
The big flower reminded me of the one from the Everything Eleanor stamp set, so I used that stamp for a lighter image on the sentiment, which is from the Trust God stamp set.  I also used linen thread, crumb cake cardstock and curly label punch.
I tried to pick up the shine on the specialty paper.  I hope you can see it.

My third card is my favorite (mostly because I thought I was cleverly "breaking the stampin' law" using part of the Carry On stamp set, but I see that it is allowed now to use the stamps except the one that says "carry on and").

The stamped frame is from the Everything Eleanor stamp set.  This card also uses vanilla, midnight muse,  cajun craze & suede cardstock, and Comfort Cafe' DSP.
I don't know if you can see it, but I punched about 6 of the little postage stamp from the Little Labels punch pack.  I stacked them behind the cut out of the flower stamp to try to make it look a little 3D.
Other punches I used were the 2 3/8" Scallop circle and the 2 1/2" Circle punches.  Midnight Muse stitched satin ribbon added the finishing touch.

Now, you have one more stop on the blog hop and then you will have all the inspiration you need to Stamp On!
Have a blessed day!   Elizabeth K.
