Some New Cards

I sat down the other day and worked on some cards. I've been collecting a bunch of stamps lately and have been dying to use them.

This 1st one has that great Houndstooth backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms and some of CHF stamps by sweet friend, Kim Hughes. The trees are from the Making the Grade set. The 'Thanks' is from my favorite set, Tag! You're It!.
All cardstock on these cards is WorldWin Papers. I picked up this set of stamps by Unity Stamp Co. while I was teaching in Ohio. It's a fun set with a wide variety of images in the bag.
For this card, I broke out the VersaMark and Glue Pad. Love how the Versa Mark stamps the muted images on the Crafty Creations by WorldWin. The Glue Pad is AWESOME for working with glitter. All you have to do is stamp the image and dump the glitter on. It's a nice thick glue that holds the glitter well.
The stamps on here are Stampin' UP! and that little tag is from that Kim Hughes Collection again.
This one might look a bit familiar. I took the same idea from the 'Peace' card I made a few weeks ago. I gave that one away already and really liked the look of the flag on the Kraft. This time I did it for a Father's Day card for anyone in the military and added a bit of stitching around it. The stamps on this one are from Hero Arts (Flags) and Inkadinkado.This last one is really simple again, I mixed up using a few Stampin'UP! stamps and the frame from that Unity Stamp Co. set.
I have a few more that I tried stamp kissing on. I want to pass those by a friend before I show anyone. ha! It was my 1st time trying that technique.

Have a great day all!
