New Stamps & accessories = Prolific Stamping!

The sample above was made with the new Three for You punchbox. I used the slot punch to make the scallops across the bottom & then punched the flowers across it. The colors I used were the new Purely Pomegranate & River Rock along with good ole Old Olive. I'm lovin' those colors as you'll soon see!
Here's a gate fold card made with the new Baroque Motifs set...ooh la la! I like this set with that little flower stamped randomly around over the swirls. Very easy & quick! Very me! The colors used were Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, and Blue Bayou with some River Rock cardstock. Notice that blingy brad? Oh yeah! Rhinestone brad assortments!!
Here starts the super quick & easy cards! This one used Throughout the Year to make a quick focal point. I layered it onto Wild Wasabi (I just like saying that name while I use it...kinda adds flavor to my project! Picture Emeril saying "kick it up a notch" but me saying "Wild Wasabi!") and then onto Purely Pomegranate.
Same set...different look...equally as easy! I really found myself liking these images since they don't require any kind of serious coloring & they're cute to boot! These used the polka dots from the new punchbox as well as Blue Bayou & Soft Sky/Groovy Guava & Purely Pomegranate for the coloring & layering.
Yeah, yeah, yeah...another easy card with *that* set? Told you I couldn't stop! Same colors as the baby card but for the recent graduates in my life. I think this set will be one of my new faves!

I hope all my simply layouts will inspire some serious creativity in your stamproom, too! I made NINE cards in 2 hours! I was so excited about the new stuff that I had gotten last night that I needed to dirty some of that pristine rubber! Last night didn't work since I sat & mounted stamps & gazed lovingly upon my new brads/papers...

I can't help but also include some super cute pictures of the kids taken recently...Joey's finally into eating. And Lucy now has enough hair to do funny things with it! Enjoy!

Looking at this sweet & oh-so-deliciously fat little face, you'd never guess he hadn't been eating heartily for a long while! What a little darling in his new booster seat!

...and here's my favorite camera ham! Lucy had pigtails for the first time in this photo from Father's Day.

Signing off for now...I'll try not to be such an absentee from my blog!!!!!
