Happy Birthday Mark!

Today is my nephew Mark's birthday. His family goes camping a lot so I thought the Under the Stars Stamp Set would suit him, I also know he enjoys s'mores. I got the inspiration for this card from Lori Kalus's s'mores birthday card that I saw on Splitcoast Stampers, (www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1430040).

Yey Jen!

I wanted to make a card for my friend Jen to congratulate her for getting her first recruit. I am really into making punched creations right now so I thought I would use some for her card. I am working on a punch book right now, I have cased and created over 40 punched items.
The scissors and punch are made with punches, the punch I came up with myself and the scissors I saw on Splitcoast Stampers or on someone's blog, sorry I can't remember where. I punched the stars out on the Melon Mambo and then stuck the bermuda bay to the inside flap. I also used Crushed Curry and Rich Razzleberry. Hope you enjoy!

Top Note note pads

I think these little Top Note note pads are  great. I made one for each of my boys so I can keep track of their firsts. They are nice and small so you can leave them somewhere you will think to use it. Also in the picture is one that I made for my friends daughter. These are a great gift idea, I enjoy making gift baskets so when I make one for a baby shower I like to put one of these in for all the exciting firsts! It doesn't show in the picture but I have stamped different images onto every page of the book.

Tip: If you are going to make one of these use card stock for the front and back and computer paper in the middle.

When the Forest Friends stamp set came out in the mini it was a must have for me, it reminds me of Bambi. I was really happy when it went into the new catalogue, I use the tree quite often. It is hard to tell but the white background is textured using the diamond plate from Backgrounds 1 for the Big Shot. The buttons are also from the Big Shot. I used Old Olive and Chocolate Chip paper, I think they look great together

Happy Birthday Mom!

It was my mom's birthday this week and we are getting together for a BBQ tomorrow to celebrate it. She likes the color purple and Perfect Plum is one of my favorite colors so it was an easy choice. I cased this card from my up-line Pat, we made a similar one at one of our shoebox swaps. I used the Flight of the Butterfly and sprinkles sets.

Brothers scrapbook page

Today I decided to do a scrapbook page, I have so much to catch up on. I have a huge box of pictures and more to get printed, I think I will have to send the boys out with their dad for a day or to their grandparents and try to catch up. I apologize for using retired DSP but I have a package I am trying to use up (it was from the last Sale-A-Bration).

It is never to early to make Christmas cards, I just love these snowmen from the More the Merrier stamp set, this is a level 3 Hostess set. I used Night of Navy and Bashful Blue card stock, this is one of my favorite Christmas card color combinations. I stamped the warm winter wishes in White craft ink and used Bashful Blue 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.

My niece Jade came for a sleep over tonight, she enjoys making craft projects with me, I am glad to have that time to spend with her. I had her go through my sample box and pick what ever she wanted for us to case. She chose a pop up card and wanted to do a beach theme, she wanted to make it look like there were fish swimming in the water and I think she succeeded. You can do so many things with this style of card, it would be a good one to use for children's birthday cards.

just buzzin' by

I am happy with how this card turned out. This card is 4" x 4". I used Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla card stock. To color in the bees and the hive I used blender pens and the Soft
 Suede and Crushed Curry ink pads. 

It is funny, when I first saw the crushed curry I didn't think I would use it at all, yet I keep coming back to it.

 Welcome to Stamp with Tammy! I will start by telling you a little about myself. I live in Sarnia, Ontario with my Husband Jeff and our two sons, Craig (2) and Ryan (8 Months). I joined the Stampin' Up! team in March of 2008. Stamping, card making and scrapbooking has become an addiction for me. When ever I get any spare time I sneak down to my craft area and stamp away.  I am so excited that I finally started a stamping blog of my own. I really enjoy creating different projects and sharing them with others who enjoy the same things I do. I hope you enjoy my blog and maybe even get inspired by the projects I share with you.

I created this card using the Under the Stars stamp set, this is one of my favorites right now. The colors are Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry and Soft Suede, I think these colors go great with this stamp set. I used  the back side of the new 1/2" Crushed Curry Polka-Dot Grosgrain ribbon.
