A few more cards?

Whew! The craft fair is over and while the turn out wasn't spectacular I still sold 5 cards and a pair of earrings that I made! After buying my 4 year old daughter a bear, lunch and some raffle tickets I broke even so I can call my day a success! LOL! I thought I'd share a couple more cards that I created. Hopefully tomorrow I can break out all of my new Echo Park Papers and create a great layout. It would feel really good to put together a layout right now but I have two little girls who are trying hard not to nap... oh well... Hope everyone else's weekend has been good too!

I bought this stamp set at Michael's a while ago but wasn't sure HOW I would use it... then I learned about the paint daubers and decided to use the paint on the stamp and I loved the way it looked on the parchment look paper! I also stamped the word "believe" with the paint. Then inked all of my edges with CTMH ink. The inside says "dreams do come true" and I also stamped a little Cinderella-ish shoe from the same set.

So I joined the Unity Stamp Company Facebook Page and they had a contest that you could win a free stamp set, you just had to create a card with one of their stamps. Since I had already planned a stop at Archiver's I picked up this really cute stamp set for only $3.99 so I could play along. I used some left over Echo Park Paper from the A Walk in the Park line from one of my Scrapbook Chicks kits. I didn't win but still had fun making this cute card.

I made this super cute alien with the B is for Boy Cricut Lite cartridge. This is one of my absolute FAVORITE cartridges! It has so many cute images! Anyhow, I cut my little alien at 4" and instead of cutting the pupils I added some googley eyes to make him super silly. The planet the alien is standing on I free hand cut from some "Beer Foam" paper that I originally bought because I thought it looked like Swiss Cheese and I was doing a Wisconsin layout! The black star background was leftover from a Halloween layout and the shooting star is cut from silver mirror paper. I also used a circle punch for my planet and then cut the ring. On the inside I wrote, "Hope your Birthday is out of this world!" I think this is one of my favorite cards!

Well, hopefully my next post will be a fabulous layout, I'm ready to get scrappy! Don't forget to check back often, I'm aiming for October 1st for my big blog candy announcement!!! You won't want to miss it!
