I have been more productive than the blog shows lately. If only I had the time to write up posts! I hope you are all having a good summer. Thanks for looking!

I bought a bunch of punches from someone off Craigslist and this little duck punch was in the set. It's so cute! My cousin just had a baby, and the shower theme was ducks. I didn't have the punch before making the favors, but I used it here on this super-simple card. The sentiment is from a dollar stamp set and I masked it to stack the words. The papers are from a Making Memories pad, Sydney. It is old, but is full of yummy blues and greens!

This week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World is a great rainbow of threads. I don't have any sewing-themed stamps, so I used the rainbow colors as my inspiration. The butterfly and sentiment stamps are from Unity Stamp Co's Be You (that I just got at their online warehouse sale!). The flourish is from an old clear set I got at Target a loooooong time ago.
I stamped the butterfly in Versamark on black card stock, then layered the rainbow colored embossing powders. I heat embossed then cut out the image. It is layered on Very Vanilla cs, with a black panel and a Vanilla base. The rhinestones on the butterfly and exclamation point are from my stash.
Thanks for looking!

For the record, when you are using the Square Lattice folder to emboss a piece of cardstock, be sure to alter your measurements a bit. Embossing made my layer by 1/8 inch smaller so now it doesn't perfectly cover the base card!
I used my new Unity Stamps Sending My Love set that I got during their warehouse sale last weekend. Such a fun set! This card is going into my June OWH pile. The dp is BG Junebug and the image is stamped in Cherry Cobbler. The mailbox was colored with a pale grey marker that smeared the ink, making it look pink. But that's fine because of the pink in the paper :)
I hope you are having a good weekend. DH is home for all of 36 hours so we are just hanging around at home. Thanks for looking!
