Old Age? or just a bad memory? or both….

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.

I used the "True Friend" stamp set, because it was way back on the shelf since I’ve been using new ones.  It looked a little neglected.

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!!)

    Yeah, Jackie, (Hi Jackie) and if you are getting old AND Buffy is old, then we won’t even discuss me. I like to think I am pretty young yet — humpf! And, Buffy, I happen to like the envelope project we did today, nothing wrong with that style. Like I said, we won’t talk about any mistakes, because to everyone else it looks like the intended design! –sandy
