Set sampler Saturday! - Age Awareness

Tomorrow is our 23rd wedding anniversary!

Tonight my husband and I went out to dinner in order to celebrate.

Since our morning was filled with a baseball game for our younger son, and my afternoon was making graduation cards for our older son (he has parties to go to this weekend), I had no time to do my set sampler cards!

I was bound and determined to keep it "set sampler Saturday" and not Sunday!

When we came home, I decided I would do some really quick cards.

Isn't that what we just need sometimes? Quick cards?

You know, when you're in a hurry and you say, "Oh no! I need to make a card!"

Well, if it's a birthday this is your go-to set!

It's called Age Awareness and it's new this year! 
As you can see it has lots of different stamps! What I like most about it - it's photopolymer, so it's clear all the way through for easy placement! Plus, they just STICK to the clear block without any fussing around. (I am starting to prefer these over the regular clear-mount stamps that we sell...)

I consulted my vast file of Pinterest cards... (like I said I needed quick cards - quickly!) 

Mostly CASEs with some tweaking...
Colors: Lost Lagoon and Whisper White
Extras: 2 1/2" circle punch,  sponge daubers, white gel pen, linen thread, marker in Lost Lagoon

Paper: Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White, Sweet Taffy DSP (don't forget July SU! special: buy three DSP, get one free!) I love the colors in this pack so much I may just buy three more and get a fourth one free!
Ink: Blackberry Bliss
Extra: Tangelo Twist ribbon

Colors: So Saffron, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Whisper White
Extras: Pool Party ribbon (from last year's Sale-a-bration), dotted scallop ribbon border punch, Dotty Angles photopolymer stamp set
Quick and easy!

And I can officially say that I got this done in time to qualify for "set sampler  Saturday!" Phew!
