Card of the day

Hello Stampers! This is a card that I made months ago. Unfortunately, it was for a coworker whose father had passed away. I purchased this stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs. It is the only stamp set I own that is not Stampin Up! I bought it to make some embossed tiles to sell at the flower shop my Mother works for. The stamp set is wood mounted like SU but one tip: don't get the image on the sticker wet or the image will rub off. I found this out when I was cleaning the craft ink off of it! Oh well, live and learn. Happy Stamping!

The Details:
Stamps: Path of Life(our daily bread designs)
CS: always artichoke, choc chip, very vanilla, retired DSP
Ink: choc chip craft
Other: clear EP, ticket corner punch


I just wanted to share a link and say thanks to Three Column Blogger Blog for helping me edit my blog layout. The directions were fantastic for a computer dummy like me!! I could not figure out all of the computer lingo BS that I found on the other sites! Thanks again!

Also, I wanted to comment on where I purchased the new logo from. It is called The Sabby Shoppe. They sell blog banners and all kinds of digital scrapbooking supplies. This is something I am very interested in but just haven't worked it in to my schedule yet. If you are intersted, please visit their site. Their prices seemed very reasonable but I do not have much experience with the digital stuff!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and have a great week!

Cards for the Grads

Hello Stampers! I found this adorable "spring card" on splitcoast and just had to CASE it! You can find the original picture here with instructions found here. I modified it a bit to make a smaller one. The larger one is great but you must have the square envelopes to put them in. I realize that not everyone has the square envelopes on hand so, I made a smaller one to fit in a regular medium envelope. You start with a piece of cardstock that is 4-1/4 X 9-1/2 and fold it the very same way. The tassel on the small one was made with grosgrain ribbon that has been frayed. Enjoy!

The Details:
Stamps: Say it with scallops
CS: black, white, real red (large one) or night of navy (smaller one)
Ink: black
Other: numbers were cut using Base Camp for Cricut, silver brads, grosgrain ribbon or DMC floss

tried to post

Hello stampers! I tried to post a card tonight but blogger must be messed up. It wouldn't let me add the picture of my card. I'll try again tomorrow.


3rd try at posting this!

Hello stampers! I hope you all are having a wonderful week! I'm so glad I got the yard mowed yesterday before MORE RAIN. The front yard already looked like I was doing a bunch of donuts in it because it was still soft!

We are having a baby shower at work tomorrow for a coworker and I made this card for our department to give to her. I got the idea from here on splitcoast stampers. There are many more ideas on there too, just to a search for baby bib cards. The ruffle was made using the scallop border punch and then ran thru the crimper. I used sticky strip to attach it to the "bib" to make sure it held its shape.

Thanks for lookin'!

Card Details:
stamps: punches three (sale-a-bration '08), A New Little Someone
CS: bashful blue, so saffron, whisper white, textured DSP
Ink: so saffron
Other: bashful blue grosgrain, scallop border punch, crimper, buttons

Sunday's post

Hello Stampers! This is a card that I whipped up a few months ago. A coworker asked me to make a card for her grandson's birthday. I can't even remember the name of the stamp set off hand but I do know that it is a retired set. I made the clouds by making a template out of scrap cardstock and sponging. The name was cut out using the Cricut. If you would like any other details, feel free to leave a comment and I will try to figure it out, lol.

Where have I been!?!

Guess what? I don't know where I've been. I have just been having trouble making time for everything the last few months. I am going to work really hard in the next couple of weeks to start blogging again. I feel like I am completely out of the loop because I haven't even been reading all of my regular blogs that I am subscribed too. I am going to try to make better use of my time and get some things posted! If any of you would like to help me with some posting, feel free to email me some photos of projects you have made lately with a list of supplies!

I know some of unsubscribed and I understand kinda, although, it's not like I have been filling up your email boxes with a bunch of junk that has nothing to do with stamping but to each his own. Whatevah.

Thanks to those of you that have stuck with me,
