So I had a class order last week for beads and sticky cuts and a few extra things for some friends. It totaled a small workshop, earning me some hostess credits. I used them to get "All Scallops," because it coordinates with the new scallop border punch, and finally got it mounted this afternoon. (I am sooooooo spoiled by the die-cut stamps!)
Anyway – the whole purpose of this card was to use that stamp set. And look what I forgot!!! Oh, well. It was still fun to make.
Ink: Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write marker; Classic Pads: Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie; VersaMark
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Blender pen; corner rounder, 1" & 1 1/4" circle, ticket corner and scallop border, 1/16" & 1/8" handheld punches; Pumpkin pie narrow grosgrain, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Rhinestone brads-circle, ice; linen thread
So that was easy.
At our workshop today, we made the "covered envelope" book. They looked great, but were a lot of work and a bit more time consuming than I wanted.
Here’s some background for this project: I’m taking an ASL course (very, very beginner, but Donna Williams is a wonderful teacher. I’m amazed at how much I can sign after only 8 weeks!). Last night, Donna & I were talking about the book, and she mentioned her envelope templates. Wowzer! How easy, and what a great way to use up my retiring DSP! I dusted off my 5-in-1 envelope template, and here’s what I came up with. (Sincere apologies to Sandy, Laura, Janet, Karen & Mom for not figuring this out before the workshop today. I’ll give you another chance!)
These use Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron and Groovy Guava Prints DSP. I decorated them with rub-ons (Urban West), and a chipboard flower (dyed Groovy Guava). I punched a Tempting Turquoise scallop circle and 2- 5 petal flowers (Groovy Guava & So Saffron) and attached them to the chipboard with a Rhinestone brad (circle, ice) and a Stampin’ Dimensional.
The "for you" on the bottom corner is from "One of a Kind" and it’s stamped in Tempting Turquoise. That’s all there is to it.
Gotta run — DH is waiting by the door. (Hey, Sandy – mine does that too!!)
