I love new stamps!!

Hi all!  Don't you love getting new crafting supplies?  I ordered myself two new stamps with some birthday money I got in June.  I had been wanting both of these new stamps since last winter.  I love how they work together and I love how I know I will be using them separately.

I gave you a bit of a peek in my last post of what I was making.  Here is the final set of cards that I made.  I went pretty girly with them.  :-)  Here is a close up look of one of the cards.  I made a set of 5 cards total. I stamped each envelope to match.  The sentiments for each card are: Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary, Happy Mother's Day, Thanks & Friend. 

The butterfly, envelope pattern background and flourish stamps are all by Hero Arts.  The sentiment stamps are all by Stampin Up.  I love to mix and match.  It doesn't matter to me that they are by different manufacturers, they work beautifully together.

On the inside of each card I stamped a corresponding sentiment.  Some are religious, and some just match the sentiment on the outside of the card.

I didn't want to give just a set of cards, so I made a matching note pad to go with.  :-)

It's just right for popping in your purse, leaving on your desk, or taking to work.

Here are all the cards together.

Here are the cards, envelopes and the matching notepad.  I hope a special someone will love it.

I love comments, so let me know what you think.  Link me up to what you have been working on.  I can't wait to see.

Thanks for stopping by.
