Getting Creative

What do you do when you are on vacation and have limited stamping supplies on hand???  You get creative! 
While my hubby and big boys are out trying to catch a few crab for dinner tonight and my parents are out for a walk, I snuck in a little bit of stamping time while my little one napped.  I can't go on vacation without bringing SOME of my stamping supplies!  I'm not the only one who does this, right?!?!?  I brought along the new Circle Card Thinlits, so I decided to play around with them a bit more.  And while I was at it, I thought I'd play along with the latest inspiration challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I was inspired by the bold colors in this picture:
All of the cut out portions of this card are from dies that are included with the new Circle Thinlit Dies.  So much fun!  And of course I had to add a little Gorgeous Grunge to the card...pretty sure we are all adding some here there and there to a better part of our cards right now :-)
I did put a scallop circle on the back side of the circle with two hearts, but forgot to take a picture of it...oops!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple
Ink ~ VersaMark
Stamp Set ~ Gorgeous Grunge
Other Supplies ~ Circle Card Thinlits, Vintage Faceted Buttons, Summer Starfruit Button (Halloween Banner Accessory Kit), Linen Thread, Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon
Well, nap time is over, which means my crafting time is over...unless I want a busy little two year old "helping" me :-) 
Don't forget to come back later today and check out Day One of the 2013 Artisan Finalist blog hop!
Happy Stamping!
