Bon Appetit!

I'm so excited to share these pictures with you today! These are my first samples for the Design Team I am on! We were able to choose some stamps that we wanted to work with for this month! It was hard to decide as there are a lot of great choices there! The one I finally settled on is called "Bon Appetit" and is actually a set of 6 stamps. So far I have made 3 cards but you know I'm getting my layout right for using them in a scrapbook page too! I have some pictures of my family when we went to Napa Valley California to see the wineries! Wouldn't this be the perfect set to accompany that page?!

Take a peek and don't forget to check out the stamps I've used as well as the others!

I opted to go for a simple layout and idea for this one! I wanted it to be so you could give it to a man or a woman. I found some awesome paper from "The Paper Company" and "Bo Bunny Press" to use for this one! The words are actually in French and mean "Joy to Life"!



I came to this design by accident! LOL! I was trying to make a different card using my brayer, well actually one my Sister-in-Law gave me. It had apparently set for a while and has a flat! LOL! When I rolled it in my SU purely pomegranite ink and then on the paper it made these weird lines across it! Can't use that but.... when I played around a little more I thought - "Hey, stamp the grapes in black and use my other new Bo Bunny Press designer paper, a couple of scraps I had, layered it all on SU Basic Grey cardstock and....." I was tickled with the outcome except I thought it still needed that "oomph"! Easy fix - embossed the French words on it and called it done!



Aaah I think this one is a favorite! I used a sketch from SCS (#SC195) and my favorite stamp from the set! More Bo Bunny Press paper along with some more from The Paper Company, added some gold zig pen scribbles on it and some snap brads!



Well, don't forget to tell me what you think of my cards! Come back to see what else I can come up with too! LOL!

Until next time....
