A couple of cards for Kerry's Color Throwdown #6

Hey all, I've been MIA for a bit as hubby and I took a mini vacation, did a little boating, HE did a little fishing and I did a little reading, - stayed in a motel so no cooking, no cleaning, no dishes and no laundry (till I got home of course)  It was a great break.

But after the great Christmas In July blog hop from the previous post I wanted to play along with Kerry's Color Throwdown #6 and this great color combo.  Here are a couple of cards that use the August Card Club stamp set that is available for only $4.50 with any $30.00 order to all Card Club members!  It also uses one of the new Gift With Purchase stamps that are FREE with any $30.00 purchase - you can get a lot for your $30.00 purchase don't ya think?

This is the definition of simple stamping - no embellies, no bulk - and very little layering.....unusual for me :)

This one uses one of the new Tim Holtz embossing folders for the background and I sponged it with some brown ink for a little definition.  The "thank you" sentiment is from the "Apple of My Eye" set that I used for the card below too!

And of course I couldn't wait to ink up this sweet little bear from Maybelle's
"Apple of My Eye" set.

Hope you enjoy and can gather a little inspiration to get stamping!
