I Don't Do Cute! and CCC #9

Yesterday at Stamp Fever's Grand Opening, everything looked so festive in the store.  Kathy Ethington did a lot of the decorating for the event, adding a lot of vintage touches around the store.


This is Linda - Stamp Fever . . .
This is Nancy - Happy Heart Studio . . .
There was a card contest . . .
There were cupcakes . . .
There were friends old and new . . .
This is Tiffany from It's the Stuff I Love . . .

This was Tiffany's first ever make-n-take!  She did such a great job :) We made a tag using Lizzie Anne Design rubber stamps . . .
rubber stamps, distress inks, a little embellishment and some doodling
Next up was Kelly Marie Alvarez.  Ok, so I'm always saying "I don't do cute".  Well, yesterday I think Kelly might have turned me around with her Lawn Fawn rubber stamps  Kelly is the designer of this stamp line.
Using stamps from the "Bake Me A Cake" package, brace yourself now . . . these are the cards I created . . .
rubber stamps, decorative papers and distress ink

Now REALLY people . . . have you ever seen me do anything this cute before?!  LOL  But I've gotta tell you, I really liked this rubber stamp set.  I think I'll sit down and make some cards :)
I really wanted to submit something for Linda Ledbetter's CCC - Week 9, and didn't think I would make it before CCC - Week 10 was announced on Monday.  Things were really busy and stressful at "the day job" as well as personally, but I got it done.  Here's my entry . . .
Have an art-filled week ahead!

As a fellow member of the "I Don't Do Cute" club, I hear ya! But you know what....I don't think those cards are cute; I would say that they are whimsical. Yep, not cute. Whimsical.
That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!

Sherry, your crackled art is FLAT-OUT GORGEOUS! It looks like porcelain! I'm so glad you were able to fit it into your very busy-- and very fun-- weekend!

(Did someone say "cupcakes?!")

You know what? I love your cute cards, too! Those stamps are so awesome I think I may need to get that set myself. I love the whimsical, retro feel.

Chris said...

This is wonderful, I love what you did with text and the two hearts are superb. :)

Nancy Lynn said...

I think these are nice Sherry. Not real cute like curly hair and rosey cheeks.... Sounds like you had a great time this weekend.

Marilyn said...

I'm with you. I don't do cute but these are really fun.

Hello Sherry,

I'm not into "cute" too, but cupcakes... that's a temptation...
Maybe it can be a challenge to use these stamps and make them more into your style or more "distressed" or doesn't cupcakes tastes good then anymore...

I like your CCC#9 contribution.
How did you do the background with the text ? stamp and overstamping ?
Nice crackled hearts.

greetings from Belgium

FUNNY! Love your cards, and if I remember correctly, I grabbed one of your ATC's that said exactly that last year on the cruise, 'cause I thought it was hysterical. That, and I don't do a lot of cute, either. Wonderful stuff, how awesome to create with friends? and don't forget the cupcakes....

Tiffany said...

Great photos and such a fun, fun day! So nice to meet you and I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Lovey said...

Lot's of fun!

Nancy said...

What a fun post, Sherry! It was a fun day wasn't it? I love your Lawn Fawn (read:cute) cards...Kelly's stamps are perfect for cute or not!
Thanks for helping to make the Grand Opening so fun...
blessings,
