If you've got children, grandchildren, or just know a child, I challenge you to tell me you haven't seen a picture that you could do this with! Bubbles were just made for the Circle Scissor Plus, or is it the other way around?
A few months ago a member of my family from England emailed me and asked me if I'd order some golf cards from a company in America and send them to England. Shock, horror, I had to actually order and send shop purchased cards.
To my delight, a few weeks later Stampin' Up! came out with a fantastic stamp set for guys, including golf and so I set about creating a set of note cards to send to England.
By the time I'd finished, I'd completed it by creating a coordinating box with a window.
Jennifer, Dianne, Elisa, Andrea and Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful creations with me. I only wish I could express in words the warmth that filled my heart when I received your beautiful cards. I will treasure them always.
It took me a while, but I've finally finished my London make 'n takes.
I started out creating them step by step as the directions said and then I got a little side tracked and added a little of my own inspiration.
All these samples required only three stamp sets and you could actually get away without needing the third one. (Fundamental Phrases)
When you place an order that includes the stamp set Soft Summer from the Occasions Mini and the set Best Wishes and More from the current Spring/Summer Idea Book, I will send you by email FREE the instructions to make six projects either the same or similar to those pictured below.
The card above was supposed to be a cute little bucket, but I was worried it wouldn't travel well and so I attached the bucket to a card and left the top open so that you could add a little treat or message to the bucket and also write something inside the card. It's my favorite, because the stamp set inspired me to be extra creative.
I haven't found the right snow picture to go on this scrapbook page, but I know it's somewhere in my collection. For now I've stamped snowflakes on the mat. This is the first scrapbook page I've ever made at "scrapbooking" on Friday night!
I haven't lined envelopes before, but it couldn't have been quicker and easier, I can't wait to do it again. Don't you just love this little set, it's perfect to keep on hand to give to someone special.
The next card was created using the Textured Impressions with the Big Shot and Designer Series Paper, then you take a sanding block and sand the raised image to remove some of the color and this is the fabulous effect you are left with. I remember when Rebecca first saw the stamp set she said hmmm nice, but when she saw the card below she was totally wowed!!
No matter what you do with Fifth Avenue Floral, it just looks spectacular - you can even decorate your home or art with it because there is a coordinating Manhattan Flower Decor Elements and if you really need more inspiration, there's "Urban Oasis" Designer Series Paper to coordinate beautifully with Fifth Avenue Floral.
Now I know I have more pictures somewhere, so keep coming back and as soon as I find them and crop them and I'll post them because I absolutely love the sophisticated style of Fifth Avenue Floral and ALL the fabulous coordinating products that will give your projects "urban flair".
I spent another day in the forsythia bush - but I think I've finally done enough to keep the birds happy for the summer and I'm really looking forward to all the new growth next Spring.
It's wonderful to be able to share projects with you, but I often wish you could see them person, because they are so much better and this one I love because the bird is shiny and the designer series paper is simply delightful.
