Playin' With a New Stamp

Hi everyone!

Just a real quick post today. I have to head to work soon. I've been playing with a new Penny Black Stamp that was a gift from sweet Tiffany! Thank you, again, for your kindness, Tiff!


This one was white embossed onto the textured card stock.



For this card, I stamped the image using Smooch paints. Love the shimmer!



Here's a close-up of the button. It wasn't quite the right shade of blue, so I added some stripes to it, using the darker blue smooch. Fun!



Thanks for your visit! Make someone smile today! :)

Oh I love that button and was about to ask you where you got it, Barb!!! So cool you did that with Smooch! I have not really worked with that stuff but I do have one bottle of silver smooch. Love your cards:)

Love how you did the button Barb. Both cards are so different, but so pretty. Love the big pink bow!

Lisa said...

Both are fun, but my fav is the 2nd, blue card. I have to check out those Smooch paints! This turned out beautifully :) Love that button and twine as well!

So pretty both of them Barb - My fave is the first one ;)

They are both just gorgeous and very elegant. Love the pink pearls and bow on the first one and shimmer and butterfly on the second.

Both the cards are gorgeous Barb!!! Love what you did with the button, I've never used smooch:)
That pink and Turq combo is superb.

I was just looking at the stamp Barb and thinking "I'd love to have that one"! You made 2 beautiful cards and I love what you did to the button for some extra color!

I've been eyeing that stamp, too. LOOOVE it in blue! Beautiful cards, both of them! Look over there at your Flickr photostream.......are you becoming a blue fan? :))) Those are wonderful colors for this time of year, so cooling.....

Beautiful cards, Barb! I love the color combo on the first--and that gorgeous bow! The Smooch stamped flowers are so pretty and I really like the matching button! So clever!

what a great stamp and what perfect cards you have made with it

Jacqueline said...

Barb, this flower stamp suits your style beautifully - just gorgeous cards - simple style which gives it so much effect!

Maureen Morton said...

You are such the flower master, Barb! You've got the magic touch. Love these both, but that blue one has my heart - such great, rich and shimmery color. And that button! Don't tell me that I need to learn about another new product? You done good again, kid! Have a great week.

Love these Barb but am especially drawn to the second card! the button is such a great addition all "smooched" up!

AnitaRex said...

Oh boy do I love these cards!!!! WOW Love how the smooch paints are so shimmery I need some! And I love it stamped in white on the aqua!!! Can't decide which one I like more!

Cathy A said...

Lovely cards Barb, I have been playing with this stamp too!

Clare said...

Oh my goodness, two bee-you-tee-ful cards! I love the first one, but the second stole my heart! Blue is my second favorite color (not paper-crafting wise), and you have used it beautifully!

Judy1223 said...

Barb, that IS a pretty stamp, isn't it? Your cards are LOVELY, I might add...I especially love the second one with the lovely shades of blue. Gorgeous!
