Happiness is new stamps.

And did you hear that the fabulous Kelly Purkey has created her own stamps? They are such fun. I decided to put one into action on this card…

That greeting is incredible and looks great white heat embossed. Great for cards and scrapbook pages. I made this card for my husband – a little Studio Calico wood veneer person for each member of our family. This summer has been crazy, so I wanted to give him a little remember of how happy it makes me. (But I am taking note that there isn’t enough room on this card for another person – ha!)

So you can see more of Kelly’s stamps HERE.

And those wood veneer people… aren’t they fun? I colored them slightly darker with a marker – it helps to pick of the wood grain texture.

I LOVE the tiny herringbone and chevron background stamps on this from Impression Obsession. They are big and square so you can stamp either horizontal or vertical on a card. Brilliant.


I love new stamps.

Speaking of new stamps… have you seen this new Autumn Groves stamp set from Paper Smooches? Adorable! You can see more HERE. Yes, I love new stamps. :) Just wanted to share! Oh, and it looks like you can have a chance to win it HERE.

  1. Kelly’s stamps are incredibly fun. I have looked at them a number of times and I still can’t decide which ones I just have to have. I like them all! Your card is very cute. I am currently 5 1/2 months pregnant with our third boy, the other two are 6 & 9. The first thing out of hubby’s mouth, after we found out that this one is a boy, was “do you want to try again?” I said “Oh NO!!!” Three is enough. Plus at 36 I am afraid I am getting to old to do this again. Pregnancy this round is more tiring than with the other two….

    I love the stamps too Jennifer! My question would be how does it line up for multiple stampings? It’s my belief that BG stamps should always be made to cover 12X12 if you wanted to! Cards are great but it’s nice when you can take it to the page also.

  3. Nothin’ better than new stamps. . . . .well. . . . .except for a happy family! Darling card, Jennifer! :)

  5. I don’t know… but I think one more little person can fit beside the hearts and Lila ;)

    Love that card! I was just browsing for a herringbone stamp last night and came across that one. I think you just helped me make up my mind about purchasing it.

    Cute card. I’m thinking that you could squeeze in about 3 more little people on this card ;)

    Brilliant, love your veneer family……you could always make the card a bit longer (wink wink)!

  10. Love the card! Such a great stamp too. I don’t know though- I thought I might have spied a space for maybe one or two more veneer people?!!!

  11. Just love your little woodgrain family -so cute, Jennifer!

  12. AHHH!!!!!!!! What an amazing card! Love your beautiful background but it doesn’t distract from the cute sentiment and little wood family!!!

    That card is so sweet & adorable…but I think there is a little more room on the card. Maybe you can fill it up with pets. SC needs to make wood veneer pets :)
