Birthday: Age Awareness

I recently bought this stamp set and embossing folder.  I was playing in my craft room and thought I would try using them together.  After I put it together, I did not know what else to do; the card seemed to be done.  Now, I know what to do when I have to make a quickie card.

Sympathy: Dragonfly and Scripture

I decided to stock up on sympathy cards over my vacation.  When I bought this stamp set, I wasn't too sure how to use it.  However, it makes a beautiful sympathy card.  This scripture was used at my dad's service, which makes it special to me.

Christmas: Coupon Book




I made this coupon book for my mother for Christmas.  I wanted her to know that the family would be there for her after my dad passed away.  I printed the coupons on the computer, stamped each coupon, and wrote in what the coupon was for.

The coupons and cover were Crop-A-Dialed for the binding of ribbon.  Very fast project.

All Occasion Cards for Boxing Day


Inside the box, I have four cards and four envelopes for gifts for boxing day.  I used the same design as Aaron used for her sympathy card, but added four different sentiments. 

The box was made on the envelope punch board.  I used a 9.5" by 9.5" paper, with my first scores made at 4" and 5".  I used ribbon to tie the box shut.  It is too bad the box punch board does not go larger that a 4" cube. 

Colors:
Bravo Burgundy
White

Stamps:
Winged Things
Sincere Salutations

Other:
Sizzix Edgelits
Ribbon

Birthday: Four Feathers with Vellum, Part 2



This is the second card with the same basic design.  I switched up a bit, but not much.  This is the original description:

I wanted to show how lightweight feathers are, so I used VersaMark on Vellum with a white embossing powder.  I also embossed the Gorgeous Grunge lines on the background and the sentiment.  I love how light and airy the feathers turned out.

Colors:
Baked Brown Sugar
Vellum
White Embossing Powder

Stamps:
Four Feathers
Gorgeous Grunge
A random Happy Birthday stamp

Other:
