January Swap Card

On Saturday, my Upline, Lorri Heiling, had our Regional Event and it was so much fun!  We even had some others join us from some other teams associated with us.

There were 45 or so signed up and 22 people signed up to be in our card swap.  Thankfully we split that in two so we only had to make 11 cards to swap.

Here is mine.  It is only a card front, but the measurements on the front would be the same.


Recipe:
Daffodil Delight - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"  
Bermuda Bay - 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White - 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

Little "card" 
Whisper White - 3" x 1 1/2", scored and folded at 1 1/2"
DSP - 1 1/4" x 1 1/2"


Thank you for looking in today!  I'll have more swaps to show you over the next few days.

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Lavender Thanks

Last Saturday's workshop orders arrived at my house last night, so that means it's time for thank you notes to my customers!

I loved the Lavender so much, I wanted to do it again AND show you a little tip I didn't take the time to take a picture of before.  Be sure to check out the tip at the bottom of this post.



Recipe:
Whisper White Cardstock - 6" x 3", scored and folded at 6"
Wisteria Wonder - 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Whisper White - 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"


I stamped the outline with Memento Black, stamped off once gently and the flowers with Wisteria Wonder, also stamped off once.  For more information, check out yesterday's post HERE.

This time I stamped the outline a bit lower so to include the bit of a bow that is on the stamp and then stamped it with Sweet Sugarplum.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes also using Sweet Sugarplum.



Now... for the tip.  The leaves stamps are not attached to each other, so to avoid stamping each one separately, I placed them on the image exactly where I wanted them to be.  


Then lay the block over them and gently press to attach to the block.  Then when you go to stamp, simply ink, line up and stamp a perfect stamp each time.  This is also how the Stamparatus works, so it will be good practice for you!  :)


Thank you for looking in today.  Click on any of the pictures below if you wish to place an order.  REMEMBER - you can earn a FREE Sale-a-bration item with each $50.00 purchase.  That SAME $50.00 purchase will also get you a free gift from me.  Simply use hostess code:  DKRB49KQ.  More details HERE.

Tonight I'll be helping my upline set up for our Team Regional Event, so I may not get a chance to post for Saturday, but come and see anyway... just in case!

Happy Friday!

Lots of Lavender

My Sister-in-law would pick little bunches of lavender and and then tie them together and hang them upside down on the curtain rods in their little trailer.  When I saw this set in the Sale-a-bration booklet, I knew it would be one of the first sets I would pick... after the Panda's of course!

So, after playing with this one a bit, I think I'll be doing another one for her birthday in February.  I had a little issue with getting the color right and forgetting you have to let it dry before you judge how it looks!


Recipe:
Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Wisteria Wonder - 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White - 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" (not normally my size, but I had a boo-boo that needed to be trimmed off!)

I stamped the outline of the lavender with Memento Black, stamped off once and then onto the card.  I tried Smoky Slate, but it was too light and I tried the Black full strength, but it was too dark.

The Wisteria Wonder is also stamped off once to make it a bit lighter.  It was really way too dark for what I wanted.  The leaves are stamped with Pear Pizzazz.


The sentiment comes from You're Inspiring.

Thank you for looking in today.  It's "Friday Eve!" or also known as Thursday.

You're Inspiring

Fun for coloring!  I really enjoy coloring, especially when I need some relaxation therapy.  Whew.

This set comes ready to cover many occasions.  Easter, Mother's Day, Birthday and just because.  We really need some "Just Because" stamps, because I like to send cards, just because!


Recipe:
Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded by 4 1/4"
Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper - 5" x 3 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock - 4 3/8" x 3"


I colored the flowers with Stampin' Blends - Daffodil Delight and Old Olive with Dark Pumpkin Pie for the flower centers.


Thank you for looking in today.  Happy Tuesday!
