More Minis

Okay, I think I am a self-professed mini card addict.  I absolutely LOVE working in this format!  I have been working with the square format for my larger sized cards as well lately.  Maybe it's a phase...

Anyways, I got my new Lawn Fawn stamps in the mail last week and finally had a chance to sit down and use them today.  I really like the quality of the stamps as they have a nice clear, solidly inked image.  Some clear stamps have a so-so image quality when they are inked/stamped, but not these ones, it was like stamping heaven using these ones.  LOVE them!  Here are some of the designs I came up with today. 

Hope everyone is doing well and surviving this humidity!

Cupcake Birthday Cards

Tonight I had a chance to work on some cupcake themed birthday cards.  I think they turned out alright.  On the two larger cards, I wish I would have made the actual cupcake figure dimensional, so I am going to have to remake them and try it that way.  The "lady" card and the small card each have some glitter pen added and a little bit of bling, but it's hard to tell with the lighting I had to use.  Normally, I've been trying to work during the day so that way I can take my photos with some natural light, but that just wasn't happening today, ah well.  Anyone that's actually taking a look at these things, I would love to have some feedback about them, any feedback, good, bad or ugly, I can take it all.  I'm planning on signing up for a couple of art/craft fairs in the fall and would love to know what the general population thinks about them and so on so forth.

Another Mini

Had just a little time to myself today as little one was napping, so I had time to do one mini card.  I chose to do a pregnancy/expecting card as I have a few people I know that I could send this card to.  I love this stamp and it's matching sentiment (from Stampin Bella again).  I'm looking to order some new stamps very soon, so I will have some fresh inspiration to do some new cutesy cards.  I am planning on signing up for some craft fairs this fall, so I need to get my butt in gear!
