Photograph Card

Isn't this a fun idea? Use Staz On ink to stamp on a photograph for a very different card...

I'm sure going to miss this speciality paper......

It was so much fun making these cards. One went all the way to England for my Sister.

The full heart punch made this a fun and simple project and I'm so glad that we'll soon have self adhesive pearls.

Raspberry Lemonade

Of all the retiring items this designer series paper is the thing that my ladies have ordered the most. I'm sure going to miss it aren't you?

When I saw Dawn create this card I knew I just had to make it - I received a card as a swap last year with a similar theme, but it was mailable because the cup was flat - Bending the velum card so that the glass becomes 3d just makes this card pop - you'll have to hand deliver it, but then you'll have the pleasure of seeing the look on the face of the recipient.

I can't wait to make this card again with our brand new designer series paper - July 1st is just around the corner.

Tulip Die - Big Shot - Sooooo Simple and it's retiring

I'm soooo sad that this Tulip Die for my Big Shot is retiring. You would not believe how easy it is to make these cute votive covers.

Cut four pieces of card stock just slightly bigger than the die image. Score about 1/4" on the side of each one - add sticky strip. Cut four pieces of velum card stock just slightly larger than the tulip image and attach behind the tulip image. Wheel or stamp any design on card. Assemble. Add a candle to a small glass and you have awesome decorations for any event.
This ensemble was my parting gift for Terri - she's been a member of our stamp club for six years and is now moving to California. I saw Terri's new stamp room this winter and I was touched to see that all around the room on a shelf were many of the creations we'd made together at stamp club - Boy I'm going to miss Terri - thank goodness for skype, email and all the other wonderful modern technology that will help melt the miles away.

Check back tomorrow for details about the lemonade card.
I received this fabulous idea in a 3d swap - Thanks soooo much!. I'll be posting all my Wadazoo swaps in the coming weeks.
