I promised to share more cards using the Diagonal Slash technique – here are 4 more using the same sheet of DSP from Monday’s Post. These cards are based on an idea from Patty Bennett, which is perfect for my on-going commitment to break out my DSP!
I promised to share the other 2 seasonal themed cards using the same layout, format and masking technique, which came out of musings during my card class earlier this week.
This time we have Autumn and Winter plus a bonus for a Christmas theme!
It is a while since I last posted news on my blog. Those of you who know me or have been following me for a while know that I work for one of the biggest retail tax preparation services in the US – and Jan 1st thru April 18th this year I have been helping the nation prepare and file their 2015 tax returns!!!
While I had time to write posts I did not have time to make anything to share with you on a regular basis – but now I am back with some cards and other paper projects to share……. I hope you enjoy them – feel free to comment.
I have a small but delightful team of ladies who are part of the Stampin’ Up! family with me. I wanted to make them a small thank you gift for Christmas using products from Stampin’ Up.
I am a little late in posting this and the video as Christmas is now 3 weeks behind us – but the idea can be used for any occasion – in fact I think they would make very nice shower favors – they can be made in the party’s color scheme.
I love to make 3D items, especially ones to put little gifts into. I was in one of the large local stores a couple of months ago and came across the handbag/purse size EOS Hand lotions. It is such a lovely shape and perfect for a gift.
I was not quite sure what I would do with it but I knew that I wanted to play with card and adhesive until something came about! Continue reading
Last week I shared a One Sheet Wonder project with you. The theme for those cards was for a birthday – since we are in the run up to Christmas I decided to share a Christmas themed set. This uses exactly the same layout as the birthday cards but with different colors and decoration.
I try to make something as a little thank you for those ladies who shop with me each month. It might be a card but this month I decided it was time for a little chocolate. I used the Ghiradelli chocolate squares, I think this is the 3rd or 4th projects I have used these, but the variety of flavors and the taste of the chocolate is sooooooo good that I think it deserves more than one visit!
Back in June a dear friend of mine from my UK days celebrated a birthday – she is a lover of PINK – so I usually make her a predominantly pink card and this year was no exception.
I am not entirely sure what the collective noun is for a lot of anniversary cards, so I am just going to call them a ‘Bunch’
I have a bunch of family/friend wedding anniversaries in the second half of each year so I tend to make 6 – 7 of them so then they are ready for signing and posting.
Well, I made it…… Thank you all for helping me reach 5000+ views! I also wrote my 150th blog post last week so it was a a wonderful week for me :-). As always, when you want to say a sincere thank you it has to be done with a card…….. Continue reading
