Quotes & March Journaling Spot

Good Morning! Today is the second day of the 2RedBananas "Week of Peeks". Today we are showcasing the stamp sets "Quotes" and "March Journaling Spot". Both of these sets are very versatile and can be used on cards, layouts and altered treasures. When you visit the 2RedBananas dt blogs you will see what I mean :) Also visit the 2RedBananas blog to get the details of our Inspiration Challenge so you can have a chance at winning your choice of one of the newly released stamp set.

This first card I made uses the "Quotes" set along with Imaginisce paper. I was just looking at the "So Happy Together" paper with it's curved lines and this card popped into my head (that doesn't happen often :) I started with the Co'ordinations paper as my cardbase and then cut the Imaginisce paper so the hearts were still hanging down. I stamped the quote in Versafine Onyx black and then added the celery grosgrain ribbon and the new metallic dew drops. At the end I covered the hearts with Glossy Accents, you can see this in the closeup picture.

See the glossy accents :)

This second card was CASE'd from the Joy of Card Making - A Second Helping, Wendy Johnson's card - pg 119 if you have the book. I love both of these books. I used the "Quotes" stamp set, Imaginisce Flower Trails paper from the Twitterpated line and some of the new satin ribbon that's in the store :) The clip and the brads are from my stash.

This 3rd card uses the "March Journaling Spot" which I stamped onto the card and then onto the Imaginisce - Twitterpated, Mushroom Fancy paper (the back side). I cut out the inside of the kite and stamped Happy Birthday on it and then pop-dotted it onto the original image. The other papers I used on this card are also from the Imaginisce Twitterpated line. I also used dew drops, wrinkled ribbon, and the new stardust glitter pen in red.

The week is just beginning so be sure to stop by again tomorrow to see more sneak peeks! :)

Our quote for the day: "Joy is the feeling of grinning inside." - unknown

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

These cards are all so great. You're awesome, Jeanette. I really like the way you cut the papers on the first one. And the ribbon on the second one is so cute. They're all cute.

What great cards! I really like the kite card. It gives me an idea for a card of my own.
