For Barb

A dear friend of mine is in the hospital so of course I had to buy her a little something and make a bag for it and a card too.  Bag is super simple to make out of 2 pieces of 12x12 Designer Series Paper.  Card is called a circle spinner card, subscribed to ustampwithdawn and got the idea there.

Nancy's Birthday

Yesterday was Nancy's birthday and I made her a card and a cute little birthday cake from a tea light.  No calories in that, right?  The tea light was covered in Sticky Strip and then covered in the fabric roses that are no longer available. I used one of the boxes from the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes and shortened it and wrapped it in the Designer Series Paper, Birthday Bash.

The card uses the Mosaic Punch and the Designer Series Paper, Birthday Bash.  I popped them up on Dimensionals to give the card some depth.  And the Large Pearls were the perfect touch for the middle.

Cutting apart wheels

When I saw the new catalog I was immediately drawn to the Shop Now Jumbo Wheel.  It was one of the first things I purchased and when I got it out of the box I took it right to my Stampin' Sanctuary and cut it up into 6 stamps that I mounted on SU!'s cling mount foam.  Not hard to do and for $8.50 I now have 6 stamps that I will use way more than one wheel.

Cutting the stamps up really made me look at the images and I was so pleased to find a quirky photographer image among them.  My photographer daughter is a bit quirky and I knew I had to make another thank you card for her business with my new found stamp.  The photo is horrible, sorry, I need to hire a photographer!

The card is the size of a notecard but I used Naturals White which is a heavier cardstock.

Have you ever cut up any of your wheels or unmounted them?

New Stamps + new paper = Thank you cards for new business

My daughter and her friend both graduated from college with a degree in Photography and have launched a business,  Double Exposure Photography.  They are both very talented photographers and extremely nice people.  It is hard to make a go of it in the photography world because everyone with a cell phone thinks they are a photographer and I guess to some extent they are.

I got the new Designer Series Paper I Am Me with my daughter in mind and just had to bust it open and use it right away.  I layered the DSP on a notecard and then a piece of Basic Gray and then my stamped images in Whisper White.  Now they have thank you cards when they need them and I got to use my new stamps and DSP.  Win, win!

Here is the link to their Facebook page if you need great photographs done by professionals.

And here are the Thank You cards.

Washi, not Sushi

I have discovered Washi Tape in a big, big way.  Quick post to show you one of the cards we will be making at the Washi Tape class.  You will walk away from this class with 2 cards, a 3-D project and an idea sheet of more Washi Tape ideas.
