Trying my hand at stamping

I was talking to Shirley (her blog is Card Art, Etc)
and I had to give it a try. The picture isn't the best, but
scanning pictures doesn't always come out great.
I used different inks and mediums for different effects.
The Brilliance ink pads are great! I have listed the ones I used
beside each example.
Then I listed the different mediums I used to color in the stamps.
I used the Pearl Ex, LePlume pens, and colored pencils.
Here you can get tips on using Pearl Ex. About 1/2 way down the page it
tells you about using it for stampling.
This was so much fun that I'm getting hooked on stamping. I have
an order coming. LOL

This Old House

This is another challenge I did using the words to a song. It was perfect to make it of my Grandmother and her home. She and my Grandfather lived in that home for over 60 years.
I grew up in the house as well as my own. They just lived down the hill from us. I have very fond memories of that home.

Heritage page

This was a page I made for a challenge on one of the forums I belong to. It was so much fun making a page honoring my grandparents.
I don't know where I got the paper and embellishments. I'll keep looking and post it when I find it. This is also a digital page.

My little deaf buddy

This is my deaf cat, Buzz. This page was done with digital scrapping. The embellishments and papers are from Sweetwrapz. She does the most beautiful work.

I adopted Buzz while I was fostering dogs and cats. He was so tiny when he came to me. We worked hard to keep him alive and I put him in a guinea pig cage so he would be safe. After a little while I realized he didn't hear. By then I had totally fallen in love with him.

This has been quite an adventure. But as time passes, we know exactly what each other means. His favorite thing to do is get up on the counter or furniture and knock things off. He can't hear the noise it makes and he thinks all things should be on the floor.....I guess. LOL
