This is a card that I made for a family member who just found out she got a new job. I am so excited for her and I hope she smiles when she gets this in the mail. I just can seem to escape the Pun Fun Stamp set lately for my's just too versatile! I'm using one of the new "In-Colors" in this one ...Tangerine Tango I think it's called. Love it!

Stamps: Pun Fun
Inks: Tangerine Tango, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum
Papers: Tangerine Tango, Perfect Plum, Cosmo Cricket Patterned Paper (Storytime Collection I think), White
Accessories: Bashful Blue brad, Bashful Blue Grosgrain ribbon, Nestabilities square scallop die, Cuttlebug embossing folder (background), Word Window Punch
Note: I created my own Tangerine Tango marker by using one of my old dried out blender pens and soaking the tip in Tangerine Tango refill ink. Fortunately I have a whole set of dried out blender pens (6 tips, 6 colors - perfect!)

Disney Scrapbooking

I've been trying to catch up on my scrapbooking lately and I skipped ahead to the photos that I was most excited about....the ones from my Disney trip. I'm also borrowing some Cricut cartridges from a friend of mine right now so I want to use them as much as I can before I have to give them back. Over the next few days I'll be posting some of my layouts, so stay tuned...

This first 2 page layout is my kick-off to my Disney section of my scrapbook.
Papers: Bashful Blue Textured, Real Red, Basic Black, Vellum cardstock
Accessories: Mickey Eyelets, May Arts ribbon

Papers: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Mickey punch, May Arts ribbon
Note: I did some "faux embossing" here by glueing punched out red mickeys on the red background paper. See below for close up view.
