May Stamp A Stack cards

Well, this color combination was inspired by Becki. . .I never would choose Apricot but now I love using it. Together with Groovy Guava and Barely Banana, it's a fabulous combination!

The original card had a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY stamp in the background but I'd already done one for my dad so this one just has the Not Quite Navy ink smooshed for the background. My dad loves bird watching so this one was particularly special for him.

Back to a favorite color combination of Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant. Circles repeated in the small circle punch and flower for the "O" and the circular clip in the corner.

Now Sylvia is to blame for this one. . .I hadn't noticed the CHUNKY GLITTER in the SU catalog but Sylvia purchased it and I had to have it too. It looks SO awesome on cards. I used Tombow adhesive on the candle flames, and sticky strip along the edges of the white cardstock to hold the glitter. It stays on really well!!

And my Friday morning gang was responsible for collectively helping with this one. Burgundy, Pumpkin and Moss are a totally different color combination for me but they look terrific together. Add some hardware from the new Hodgepodge Kit and it's an easy but beautiful card.

Oh, and the sixth design was a Double Pocket card, which I am totally addicted to. They are fun and easy. I'm hoping to take photos soon and post directions for you all.
