Wonderful Day

This stamp is from a very old StampinUp set, Not So Short Notes.  I think that it was originally for bookmarks as the stamps are about five inches long.  I didn't want it that long, so I just covered up the bottom of the stamp with a post-it-note and stamped only the top part.  Then used a Nestabilities set to cut it out along with the words.  The words were on a long stamp too, so I just retyped them so that it was more useable for my card.  The inside says:  ...with wishes for a wonderful day!

Big Flowers

Totally love the blossom punch and stamp set from StampinUP, and so easy to create with it!  I cased this from another site, but don't remember who it was anymore.  Just stamped some flowers in different colors and then punched them out.  Stamped the flowers again for the centers so that they would be in green and used a small circle punch to punch them out.  Pop-dotted them and put white Stitckles on the dots so that close up it pops!  To make the 'vase', used a circle and cut off some on the bottom so that it looks like a vase.  Used a strip of embossing folder so the vase was not so plain.  I think that it turned out kinda bright and cheery!

Gift Bags

Aren't these cute!  These are small plain white lunch bags that are decorated and have a flap to close them.  There is also a ribbon on the back as a handle.  The front and back of the bag is covered with the blue star paper and then the red is folded over the top, adhered in the back and Velcro is in the front.  Happy Birthday was cut with my Cricut and the stars are made with punches.  Here is another example:

The polka dot bag has a button on the front and once again Velcro is on the inside of the flap to seal it.  The purple ribbon on the top is adhered on the back and is the handle for the bag.

The flowers are made from tissue paper!!  Took a sheet of tissue paper and folded and folded it till it was about 6x6.  Using my scalloped punch, punched thru all the layers, about 10-12, and put a brad in the center.  Then scrunched up each layer around the brad - they turned out so pretty.

This bag has three different sizes of flowers on it.  I only had one scalloped punch, the large one.  I wanted different sizes of flowers, so punched out circles with my circle punches - two different sizes - and traced it onto the tissue paper.  Then used my decorative scissors to cut around it so that it has a funky edge.  I think they turned out great!  I liked the flowers so much that I made a bunch of them for more projects.  Thanks Jo (and Diane) for the idea of the flowers, love them!

A Purrrrfect Day

Another digital stamp!  Colored with Copics and chalks.  Click on the picture to enlarge it and see the 'wallpaper' that I created with a tiny duck stamp.  It was the only stamp that I had that was so small that it would look appropriate on the size of paper I was using.  I also used crystal effects on the fishbowl so that it was shinny, like glass.  The wording is computer generated and cut out with a Nestabilities label.  Oh, and the pink background is from StampinUP embossing folder, Framed Tulips.  I hope you are having a purrrrfect day!

Stamp Club Cards - July 2012

More cards from our stamp club for July.  They are always so nice.  I like the red one because it is so different with the hole punched out and then the image was stamped inside.  They were all stamped or embossed and then used pop dots to adhere them to the front of the cards.

To Cheer You

This is a digital stamp from a company that went out of business.  I just loved her work.  Made this for a friend as a get well card - thought it was kinda cute!

Stamp Club Cards - June 2012

A little late posting these cards, but once again a great time doing cards in June.  Love them all!  The yellow and black card will have a label on it once I figure out what I am going to use it for but all the rest are ready to go!
