Stamping fun

I just love to use rubber stamps. I love that you can have one product that can be used a number of ways. Both of my cards that I am going to share in this post feature stamps.
This first card is my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. I pulled out this adorable Cornish Heritage Farms stamp that I have had for awhile. Is she just too cute sitting there? Since I seem to be so attracted to yellow right now, that was the perfect color for her dress. At first the sketch was looking a little challenging to me and then I decided to just give it my own slant which is the intention of working with sketches anyway.
The piano was stamped with black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and then this can be different everytime by just coloring her dress in a different color.
Next, I wanted to use the color challenge at Gina K and these new stamps I won at Gina K plus the sketch at Get Sketchy sketch #37 for last week. The color combo is black/white and gray so out came the papers I just received in a goodie box from ScrapbookTrends, papers by My Mind's Eye.
I didn't even have to color the shells, I just gave them a little bit of accent with some gray colored Copic markers.

And for some more photos!
We have been playing a whole lot with bubbles lately, they can be so much fun for everybody.
He can even play with the bubbles while he was swinging!
Can you see that JOY on his face as he is being pushed in the swing!?
It has really been funny as the poor cat has been trying to figure out these bubbles! Just as she gets up to one, it will pop.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
