Bali Breeze Envelope Card

I made this cute Envelope (gift card) card holder today with my stampin’ buddy Lynne. Actually she is doing a swap for convention where they can use any papers or accessories even if they are going to be retiring. Inside are 2 envelopes that are cut down to 4″ (you seal then cut) so you can put in 2 gift cards or whatever you want. You can find a video on Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts on how to make this card.

Retired list

Well here it is, the retired list we have all been waiting for. I have 18 sets, plus 4 Hostess sets that are going away. I didn’t think I would have that many. I guess I will just have to buy new rubber when the new catalog comes out on August 11th. So how many stamps do you have that are going away? You can click on the list for a larger picture.

Jennifer’s Birthday Card

This is a card that I made for my daughter, Jennifer’s birthday. She will be 27 on Saturday the 14th (I think thats how old she will be). My SIL’s birthday is Tuesday the 17th too so my husband and I will be watching our Granddaughter’s Saturday overnight so they can go to dinner and not worry about the Girl’s.

This is the new Fresh Cuts stamp set and Fresh Notes that is the preview to the new catalog coming out on August 11th.  I saw this on someone’s blog and can’t remember who…..(I hate when I do that). Anyway I loved the way she used the part of the flower that you punch out.  I used the clear micro beads and Crystal Effects on the petals and glued them back in (when they were dry, just a few minutes) offsetting them. I colored in the small petals with my Rose Red marker and added a Build a Brad with the micro beads in the middle. Before I added the petals back in I used a piece of DSP and glued it on the inside of the card. Clear as mud, right? Contact me if you need better instructions.
Thanks for looking.
