No Bones About It for What Will You Stamp?

No Bones About It.....This stamp set ROCKS!!!! 

I'm in love with every one of these dinosaurs and when I saw this was the challenge set for What Will You Stamp? this week I couldn't wait to stamp with it. 

I can remember taking field trips to the museum when I was in grade school and ALWAYS being forced to rush past the dinosaurs to go to the bug exhibit or the rock exhibit.  REALLY!!!  Did they honestly think that kids would be more interested in those things than dinosaurs?  Our group always slowed down to a crawl when we were passing thru the dinosaur room and we were always scolded for dawdling.  You'd think the teachers would understand the fascination with dinosaurs and skip the bugs and let us explore the dinosaur room.  I'm sure they were probably afraid of the damage that might be caused if they actually stopped and allowed exploration.  Oh well, enough reminiscing.

I used T-Rex on my card today.  Don't you just love the skeleton?  He kind of looks like an X-ray.  It's so easy to get the placement of the skeleton perfect because this stamp set is only available in photopolymer which means it is totally see-thru.  Seriously....this stamp set makes me smile every time I stamp with it. 
Here are all the wonderful dinosaurs and their skeletons included in the set...T-Rex, Stegosaurus, Triceratops and Brontosaurus.  Did I say I love this stamp set?  LOL 
I know I'm as anxious as you are to see what the rest of the Design Team has created this week so let's get back to What Will You Stamp? and check it out.
If any of you will be attending our bi-monthly charity stamping event on August 8th this is my card that you will be making.  If you can't attend the charity stamping event but would like to recreate my card I used the following products:

Cupcake Party for What Will You Stamp?

Hello Everyone.  It's Monday morning and that means it's time for the What Will You Stamp? challenge. 

Can I just say...I sure could use a cupcake. Right now!!!!  Working with this stamp set made me want to dive face first into the real thing.  Not because it was difficult and I needed a reward, but I kept thinking of how good a cupcake would taste.  LOL  

My card this week is really simple because I wanted to showcase that sweet little cupcake.  I've always loved the color combo of pink and green so when I saw this sheet of Designer Series Paper from English Garden I knew I had to use it.  I also tried a layout that is a little different today and I think I like it.
Cupcake Party is soooo cute and would be suitable for many occasions, not just birthdays.  And what makes this stamp set even better is the fact that you can purchase a Cupcake Builder punch to make it even easier to complete your project.   
Head on over to the What Will You Stamp? challenge blog to see what the Design Team has to share with you today.

I used the following products to create my card:  
Please contact me if I can help you with your stamping needs.

Thanks so much for spending some time with me today.  I'll see you again next week.

From Land to Sea for What Will You Stamp?

I'm so excited to share my card with you today for the What Will You Stamp? challenge this week.  My cute little turtle is one of the stamps in the set From Land to Sea. I colored him with Old Olive, Sahara Sand and Soft Suede inks using a Blender Pen.  I love how the top of his shell is reflecting the sunlight coming thru the water and this effect can be achieved by added lots of water to the initial layer of color and then adding in extra color near the edges .  I colored the water background with reinkers dropped onto a Window Sheet, spritzed that with water to get the colors to blend and then placed my Whisper White cardstock into the ink.  Remove gently and allow to dry.  Very easy technique that gives a beautiful result.
From Land to Sea was one of the first items I purchased when the new catalog was released in June.  If you love the "salt life" then this stamp set is for you.  The photo below shows all the stamps that make this a must have item on your shelf.
I know there are going to be some amazing Design Team projects on the What Will You Stamp? blog so hop on over to check them out.

If you would like to CASE my card, I used the following products:  
Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can help with any of your stamping needs.

Thanks so much for visiting with me today.  I hope you will leave me a comment because I love hearing from you.

Sprinkles of Life for What Will You Stamp?

Welcome to my blog!!!!  The What Will You Stamp? challenge stamp set this week is Sprinkles of Life and I love, love, love this set.  Not only are the possibilities endless, but it is the Stampin' Up! Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set for the year.  Every time this stamp set is sold by an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator like me, a $3.00 donation is made by Stampin' Up! to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  What could be better?  
With this stamp set (and the matching punch) you can make cupcakes, ice cream cones, flower baskets, trees and clouds.  Check out the graphic below which shows all the wonderful stamps contained in this set.  I promise you can't go wrong purchasing this one.
I can't wait to see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with this week and I bet you can't either.  So let's all get ourselves back to What Will You Stamp? and see what is waiting there.
