I used Sweet Strawberries (by Theresa Momber) for my first card today:  


I just love Theresa's beautiful hand drawn strawberries so I had to use them for this card.  I stamped the main image with Memento ink and colored it with Copic Markers.  I traced around a Spellbinders circle die with a pencil and then cut it out with scissors but leaving the areas that had the stamped image.  I layered the circle on some patterned paper, added a ribbon and then I used a strip of patterned paper from Petals and Wings paper pack underneath.  I inked all edges with Tea dye distress ink and sewed around the edges of my card.  Finally, I stamped the birthday sentiment from the set and added some rhinestones.  

My second card features Vintage Notes (by Tami Mayberry)
 
I love Tami's clean graphic style.  This is a set I know I will use a lot!  For this card, I stamped the note on patterned paper and inked the edges.  I used two colors of brown ink to stamp the "Just a Note" sentiment over and over.  I used the number strip in the set to add some interest to the background.  I inked the numbers in Tea dye ink and then stamped off on some scrap paper before I stamped on the background. The result is just a hit of the numbers here and there.

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
Thanks for stopping by!

Very neat way to use these stamps. I like how you sewed the edges, but that will be one thing I won't be able to do, as I have no sewing machine. Great cards.
