Let's Play Ketchup!

Well, in this case, I mean catch-up. However, do you spell the red stuff ketchup or catsup? What's the difference? There's a really fun thread in the SCS forum going on called Writing a Letter v. Standing Still and it started by addressing something that I had seen a lot of people saying here and there, especially with the use of those FAB-O Just Rite Monogram Stampers (another thing I'd like to "score"). The original poster took the words right out of my mouth!! We, as card-makers make stationERY, not stationARY (get it? Writing a Letter v. Standing Still? If not, you can click on each word for their definitions.). Just something I've noticed since the popularity of the Monogram Stampers has grown and thought it was quite ironic that a bunch of stampers didn't know the difference in the spelling!! Ha! Anyway, the English language leaves many scratching their heads, doesn't it? Just something to ponder... So here's a couple of cards today that I put on SCS, but never have posted here (getting back to the catching up part of this post). The first card was for Julee's MOJO45 and for Carole's color challenge CC174 a couple of weeks ago. I used Lattebella and I thought the sentiment from Verve's All About You worked well with her holding her latte!! I popped up the coffee cup, it's itty bitty and hard to tell in the picture!! The next card, I was feeling the greens!!! I love Old Olive and really wanted to pair it up with a bunch of black, so I think this turned out very pretty! The black tabs in the corners are actually 1/4 of a circle punch glued to each corner. Never did that before, but it added a neat effect in real life. This card is actually a CASE of a CASE of a sketch. You'll just have to go to my gallery to read all about it (I'm being a lazy-linker tonight!). I've got lots of stamping yet to show ya'll and lots of stamping yet to do! I cannot WAIT for ya'll to see the NEW RELEASES coming for all the stamp companies I "work" for!! WOWZAS!! Start saving your money, 'cause you're going to want them ALL!!!

TIP: Use a white craft pad to ink the edges of your card or layers on your card for a soft distressed effect.

  1. These cards are both Awesome !!! I love everything about them !!!

  2. How could you forget to share these cards girl?? They are fabulous! I just love your coloring on the first one and the popped up latte is great! :D I love the colors in the second card too! AND your paper piercing is wonderful!


  3. Love your bella card with the popped up coffee mug! and the sentiment on the green card is super! beautiful cards! Interesting comments on spelling! Ill have to look for that thread on SCS - Americans have become terrible spellers - I think schools are encouraging creativity more than accuracy - and all the shortened codes for text messaging add to the problem!!
