A Moment of Shear Creativity

Things have slowed down a little (ha ha ha) so I have been able to make some cards the past few days/weeks. I have accumulated a lot of scraps and various stamped images, so I tried to use those up first. These are not my most creative postings, but I love looking at what others have done. So, maybe this will inspire somebody to be creative today!! I made this card for my aunt. She is having a barbecue in a few weeks for my brother and his finance'. This image from the stamp set Viola! from Stampin' Up. I stamped him and colored him with Stampin' Up watercolored pencils. I used a blender pen (also from SU!) to blend the colors into the image. The paper is Real Red and Brilliant Blue from SU! as well as the Rocky Ridge (?) ribbon from SU!
I found this bear stamp from a Close to My Heart. I think the paper came from Dollar Tree.
I used two different stamp sets for this card. God Bless America and Stars and Swirls (?) from SU!. The stamp pads and paper are Real Red and Brilliant Blue as well. I made these to send to military personnel from our church. This card just came to be by shear luck, but it is one of my favorites, I think. I have no idea where the background paper came from (lol)!!! The stamp set is called Build a Flower (?). I used a purple and yellow stamp color from SU! The stamped saying is also from SU!
This card was also used as a baby shower invitation. I made many extras and turned them into other cards I could use every day. I think the bear came from Hobby Lobby and the saying came from SU!
One day, I will do a better job about writing down what supplies I used. I am not use to that. Bear with me, I am still getting use to this!

Very cool cards. i think the ideas are what counts. If someone needs the 'exact' color of something thats a little unimaginative.

Good job!
