This is one of the projects we did at the the Luv2stamp meeting a couple of weeks ago. Its such a fun way to give a gift card.

Smitten Mittens

This is another Patty creation. Smitten Mittens can be found on page 38 of the Holiday Catalog. I didn’t think I needed the Marbled background stamp (you can find it on page 165 of the Annual Catalog)……what was I thinking, of course I need. Thank you Patty for being my “enabler”. LOL Doesn’t’ it look like the same image you get when you use shaving cream? So much less mess. The top layer was first…

Isn’t this card beautiful? This one was designed by Patty. Its got 6 layers but still a simple design. We started off with a Whisper White card base (you could use the new Thick Very Vanilla too).

We fussy cut the…

Big on Birthdays

It’s that time again, for the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge. This week its Birthdays. My niece has a birthday this month. Perfect!

I have to say I didn’t get a real good image and ended up using my Project Life Journaling Pens (they…
