Did you stamp today?

It is like a fever - gotta stamp almost everyday!
And, today I want to share a couple cards that I used stamping on.

This is the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger inspiration piece.

My first card is based on the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger.  I love challenges and always want to play but don't always have time but I made time for this one.
The chair is a rub-on that I just picked up at Michaels. I knew it fit perfectly with the challenge.  I created my own "wallpaper" looking background with a flourish kind of stamp from Impress Rubber Stamps.  I have had this stamp for awhile now and it was fun to pull it out. After I stamped it with an Ancient page stamp pad, I sprayed the white background with Glimmer Mist and rubbed it here and there with a Brilliance stamp pad. 

I also saw in the Trigger, either a wood looking floor or table so I wanted to add that look.  I have a mini stamp that I purchased at Michaels awhile back and that worked just right for my little accent strip that is edged with my brand new border punch by Martha Stewart.  The flower is one that I have had for ages from Prima. It was just what I needed to finish my look. 
This also fits the Little Red Wagon challenge for this week to use something old and something new on a creation.

My next card is my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. I love sketches and I thought this was another fun one to interpret. 

The middle piece is a white circle that I embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. 

The label is a stamp by Gina K as is the sentiment.  After I finished the card I realized how the pattern in the label matched the embossed design of the card base.  That card base cardstock is Core Impressions by Core'dinations.  It comes with the embossed design in it already.

And for a few pics from this last weekend...

 We went to the pumpkin patch. This is such a fun farm to visit. Here they are climbing a hay pyramid.  Grandpa and sissy are waiting at the top!

What a cute photo op!
The red barn on the farm is so perfect for a photo background.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
