Last Chance for Last Chance 2010

I planned to post a photo of my swap card that I made but I sent it off so quick I forgot to take a photo of it!  So once I get my swaps in the mail later this week I’ll post it up for you!

Today is the LAST day to order any last chance items, if there are any stamp sets you were wanting that are retiring please let me know asap!

Off to see Eclipse with the girls at work later today!


Watercolor Wishes Birthday

I made this card for my mom’s birthday the weekend before last.  I was busy finishing up Cindy’s wedding invitations so I didn’t have time to post a photo!

Stamps: Occasional Quotes, Watercolor Trio, Punched Posies

Ink: Marina Mist, whisper white

Paper: Brocade Blue, Bella Bleu

Accessories: Butterfly Punch, Scallop border punch, Bashful Blue Striped grosgrain ribbon, clear embossing powder, heat gun

Cherry Cobbler Anniversary

I’ll have to agree that not only is the name of this color yummy, but it looks yummy too!  I made this card for my husband for our first anniversary yesterday 🙂

I used a lot of new (to me) items and techniques.  On the front I stamped in Very Vanilla craft ink and embossed with clear powder.  Then I sponged Cherry Cobbler ink over the embossing and on the edges of the card and on the punched out heart.  On the inside I used the great swirl/vine stamp from the Elements of Style set and played with angles.  I like how it bends through the fold on the card.

Stamps: Elements of Style, Whimsical Words, Teeny Tiny wishes

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla

Ink: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler

Accessories: Heart punch, Sponge, Clear Embossing powder, heat gun
