  I am sharing two cards with you today they both use Claudia and Company Stamps designed by Lori Boyd from the Puddle Jumper Line. 

For the Boy Card I got out my Lucas Puddle Jumper Stamp and some more of the American Crafts Everyday Collection Papers and some Dew Drops and my lg Oval and Sm. Oval Nesties as well.
Lucas is colored up in these Copics:
Skin: R00, E00, E93, RV02
Hair: E30 E33, E57
Outfit: G20, G21, G24, B91, B93, B95
Chick: E06, E08, E38

Here is the Recipe of where you can find most of the supplies I used over at the Claudia and Company  store!!!

This next Card uses Daisy Puddle Jumper (available at the Claudia and Company store). 
For this creation above I used the Puddle Jumpers Daisy . I created the Basic Layout I wanted to use on both cards and I used the Designer Paper Line American Crafts Everyday Collection, that is available at DCRU (link below)!!! I also used some of that lucious May Arts Satin ribbon by the yard and some Dew Drops from the Cherry Chocolate set.

Daisy is colored up in these copics:
Skin: R00, E00, E93, RV02
Hair: E30, E33, E57
Outfit: RV22, RV32, RV34, G20, G21, G24, B91, B95, B97, Y06, Y08, Y38
Kitty: C1, C3, RV02
The last two pictures show you my creations side views so you can see all of the dimension.  All parts of the cards popped up using Glue Dots and excess foam and rubber from my stamps.

Well I hope you enjoyed my creations and I hope you hop along with us. Don't forget to earn the prizes you have to leave comments on all the participants blogs along the hop!!!! 

Have an Amazing Stampendous Friday everyone!!! :-)

We're having one too--it's my husband's birthday, his brother is home on spring break from college, and we're trying to meet up with 2 different friends for lunch and dinner on Saturday. Oh, and I'm going to a baby shower Sunday. Should keep us hopping! (in the good way =)
