Merry &Type

We had a great team meeting tonight, and made the punched, accordion snowflake ornaments.  I used the piece that was left over after I punched to make a smaller ornament with the dotted scallop ribbon border punch.  It was a little more tedious than the larger one, but I think that’s because I was hurrying to get it done.  I haven’t unpacked from the meeting yet (“I’ll think about it tomorrow.”), but when I do, I’ll take a picture of it.

Oh – big news!!  Our team finally decided on a name.  So now when you join my team, you’ll be a member of “InkAllusion.”  I love that!  (Kudos and antique brads to Sandy Moriarty for the idea.)  Sandy had a whole page full of suggestions; it was hard to narrow it down to just one.

Here’s another of my swaps; this one is from Robin Cosca.

I love the colors she used and the way she layered the card stock and paper.  She used the “Merry & Type” and “Many Merry Messages” stamp sets with Whisper White, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler card stock.  And see the green plaid from the “Frostwood Lodge” designer series paper peeking out?  I have a lot of that plaid, so I’m thrilled to have some ideas about how to use it.  I realized after I bought the paper that I’m not a plaid girl.  I also like how Robin added the red accents to the ornament and then a little of the Cherry Cobbler ribbon.  It really adds a lot to the card, I think.  And she used some smooch or shimmer paint on the ornament on the right.  Cute!!  Thanks, Robin!

I’m heading off to dreamland, so that’s it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by!
