I’m having so much fun making note cards. Rachel used the Stampin’ Up! digital crafting system (MDS) for her and Jon’s wedding invitations. She made postcards (so cute!) and we had them printed through the Stampin’ UP! professional printers – so they arrived with envelopes. Since we probably won’t use most of the envelopes, I’m snagging them for my note cards.
This one uses the Perfect Blend set, along with Gorgeous Grunge. I am so happy that Calypso Coral, one of the In Colors scheduled to retire, stayed around – and that Bermuda Bay came back. Love them! I added a little Crumb Cake and Early Espresso to this. I thought the java jacket just needed a little texture, so I embossed it with the Square Lattice folder. To kind of separate the cup from all the grunge, I added a layer of Early Espresso core’dinations card stock.
As I was photographing this, my UPS man brought my holiday catalog preorder. Yippee! I have to say, as much as I loved the products I bought when I ordered them, they’re even better in person. There are several kits that you’re going to love – and I can’t wait to show them off.
This made me sad, though. Since it’s threatening to rain, the box was in a plastic bag to keep it dry (just in case!). And this is on the bag.
Seriously – is there an adult anywhere who doesn’t know this is not a toy and you shouldn’t let kids stick it over their heads? I think I realized that when I was, oh, I don’t know – two, maybe. When you hear your mother scream, “Get that away from your face!” when you’re little, it makes a big impression. It makes me wonder if there’s any common sense left in our country. And when will there be a law that all plastic bags have to be “vented?” Which, of course, makes the whole purpose of the plastic bag moot, but, hey – that’s our American Political System at work, right? Somehow, I don’t think that’s what our Founding Fathers envisioned.
On that note – to all my US friends, have a wonderful 4th of July! And thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.
