Surprise, surprise...I actually made some cards! Tuesday night was my first 3 for $6 card night since June! I took a break this summer from my monthly card nights knowing that it was going to be super busy for our family. However, I still kept on the calendar the card nights that I have been doing at my mother-in-law's house with her and her friends every other month. It was a great turn out and I saw many new faces! I hope to start up my monthly card nights at my home again in September.
Now I don't have to hand cut out all those triangles to make cute banners like these...
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Whisper White, Bold Brights DSP
Ink: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Dimensionals, White Gel Pen
Tools: Petite Pennants Builder punch, Punch Pack (flower)
Stamp Set: Fruit & Flowers (matches the Berry Blossoms DSP), On Your Birthday (one of my most favorite sets for birthday sentiments!!)
Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Berry Blossoms DSP
Ink: markers - Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, Coral Calypso
Accessories: Coral Calypso 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon (love this new ribbon!!)
When using a dark colored card base, add a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White card stock to the inside for a place to write your handwritten message. As you can "kind of" see I added a flower image on the bottom right on the inside to go with the flow of the card.
Stamp Set: Pocket Silhouettes, Delightful Dozen (Get Well Soon sentiment)
Paper: Soft Suede, So Saffron, Regal Rose
Ink: Soft Suede, So Saffron, Regal Rose
Accessories: Dimensionals, Pearl Accents
Tools: Eyelet Border punch, 1/2" Circle punch, Punch Pack (mini circle), Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
And in conclusion ~ how adorable is this card that my 5 1/2-year old daughter made for her great grandma who just had surgery. She found my "reject" of the flowered stamping in the recycling and went to work on re-creating the card I had made (above). She sure does love to craft with her momma...and I am so proud of her! (Before you think she's a punching genius, I did punch out the eyelet border for her!)
