Archive for July, 2011

It was a busy month, but I did manage to come up with a couple of projects for July. I’ll post some convention photos soon. The card features Fabulous Florets (one of my favorites) in two colors: Cherry Cobbler and Calypso Coral. My daughter likes the stamped/masked version and I like the popped up version. I used the new Occasions Alphabet for the sentiment. For the background I stamped with acrylic blocks in Certainly Celery.

The second project – corner bookmarks, from a tutorial on splitcoast – really easy and makes a cute gift. I made two versions, one with Wisteria Wonder and the second with Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral (the colors are the same, blame my photography); stamp sets: Best Friends Forever and Butterfly Prints. I punched out the butterfly with our SU exclusive Butterfly punch, one for a mat and one cut a little more for the front one.  I love the sentiment with the butterfly set! The Solid Stripes stamp makes a nice accent, as long as I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the lines straight.

For some reason, my daughter likes elephants so when I saw this dollar stamp at Michael’s I decided it would make the perfect birthday card for her. So it’s a little bit of rubbah-dultery, but once in a while it’s OK. I wanted to put a border around the oval with the sentiment, so I punched out a scallop border, clipped it and gathered it around the oval. I didn’t do a perfect job, but with a little more practice, I think I can get it right.

The background is the retired Teahouse stamp.

Sometimes you just have to pull out an old set and give it some attention. I used my Just Jeans background stamp for the pocket – so glad I have that stamp. I used the Framed Tulips embossing folder to accent the edges, which I think works beautifully. This card went to a friend who likes frogs of course.

Oh yes, anything can go in a Petal Cone die vase – even a cat! This is another oldie – Cattitude – from my retired shelf. One of my bowling league mates requested this, and I was happy to accommodate her. This has been so much fun – wonder what will be next?
