Label Love - finally some time for my blog!

Hi everyone,

Please don't faint but yes I am here with a couple of cards to show you. I took a little time out from making Fathers Day cards for school to make a couple of cards for my BIL and his wife, as we are going out tonight to celebrate their birthdays.

I bought Label Love when I was able to pre-order from this current catalogue but I am very sorry to say that I have only just mounted this cool stamp set.  I used the same stamp for both cards but as you can see the results rather different.

For my BIL's card I have used Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Old Olive and a touch of Chocolate Chip cardstock. The image was stamped in Chocolate Chip. I cut around the stamped image and then used the co-ordinating Artisan Label punch to punch out a piece of Chocolate Chip to mat it on. The Cajun Craze mat behind the stamped image is from the Chalk Talk Framelits. A rather simple but effective card I think.

This card uses Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Whisper White cardstock. The strips of DSP is from Gingham Garden - I don't currently own any washi tape so this is the next best option. The image was stamped in Melon Mambo and again cut around and then layered on a Daffodil Delight Mat. I used the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch as a mat for the whole image. I added a little Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and a flower punched out using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and bit of bling.

I have to say it was nice to step away from the Fathers Day cards for a little while. I only have about 140 to go so nearly there.

Thanks for looking.

'Til next time,
