Welcome to the May 15th & 16th Blog Tour. Stop #16 , Tour #6

This tour features 22 blogs! Each blog will show case a beautiful project using items from Stampin' Up!'s - Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog.

Don’t forget to bookmark your favorite blogs as the links that make up this tour will disappear at midnight on May 16th.


I am featuring the beautiful stamp set called Friends 24-7. I have made so many cards with this set since I purchased it, definitely one that is well worth the investment for both male and female cards of all occasions!


Card number one is one of my favorites, it was also one of the card for this month's All Occasion Class.






Stamps: Friends 24-7 and On Your Birthday
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Kraft, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip
Other: Circle Scissors Plus, white gel pen, Chocolate Chip marker, ribbon, spritzer tool, aqua painter and pads


The next card is much more feminine. The layout is from the MoJo Monday challenge, the link in on my sidebar.



Stamps: Friends 24-7 and the Friendship Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Pretty in Pink and Raspberry Tart dp
Ink: Rose Red, Cameo Coral
Other: scoring tool, pink ribbon, circle punches, scallop circle punch, scallop border punch, Rose Red marker

Back to a more masculine type of card. I have mixed emotions about this one. Not sure if I like the blue around the bird. But I was trying to get out of my comfort zone.


Stamps: Friends 24-7
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, Kraft, To the Nines DP
Ink: Chocolate Chip Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Sage Shadow
Other: Chit Chat rub ons, twill, markers, brads, distressing tool, round tab punch


And finally the bird I keep seeing in my backyard every morning.



Stamps: Friends 24-7
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Basic Black, Baja Breeze dp, Good Morning Sunshine and Urban Oasis DP
Ink: Basic Black and Chocolate Chip
Other: aqua painter, markers., circle punches, circle scissors plus, Top Note Die, wide Baja ribbon.
