More Favorite Stamps

Happy Sunday everyone! Did you all have a good weekend? After a week of rain, we had a glorious weekend. We spent yesterday at the Long Beach Grand Prix watching the cars race, drinking huge beers, eating junk food and loving the great weather. I hope yours was fun as well!

I wanted to share a few cards using some of my other favorite stamps. The polka dot background stamp from PTI has long been a favorite of mine. And I also love my cupcake set from Hero Arts. I paired the two to make these birthday cards. You can never have too many birthday cards in your stash.


I paper pieced the cupcakes using the Kaleidoscope paper pack from Momenta. I like this different birthday sentiment, also in the Hero Arts cupcake set. And I used my polka dotted background, too!


And one more using the polka dots and cupcakes. This time I went with an aqua-blue background. I do love this shade of blue! More paper piecing of cupcakes and some ribbon tying went on this card.

I am not looking forward to Monday tomorrow. We have a busy week ahead of us and I also want to fit in some card challenges this week. I hope to be able to squeeze in some scrappy time. Thanks for stopping by today!!
