Things Remembered

We recently had a meeting with our Primary teachers at church.  I was elected/forced/volunteered/nominated....something to that effect, to make the invitations.  I find this kind of thing fun most of the time, but had a hard time coming up with something that I felt like went with our theme of "Things Remembered" well.  Still not sure I did, but it's done now! 

The heart from this card comes from the Polka Dot Punches set.  I think it looks great embossed!  To emboss it in the exact color I wanted (Sahara Sand to match the printer ink on "Things Remembered"), I inked up the stamp in Versamark first, then directly onto the Sahara Sand ink pad, then the paper.  Next I poured clear embossing powder over it and applied the heat tool.  Using the Versamark ink pad (a clear, sticky ink pad) and clear powder this way, you can make any colored ink pad into an embossing pad.

I'm not sure how many cards I've made in the last month, but it's over 300.  My neck, shoulders and head are still feeling it!  This feeling brings back memories of why it was necessary to stop doing SU.   :(

Thank You Cards

I made a bunch of these thank you cards to give to a friend's daughter for part of her wedding gift.  She had needed a bike stamp to go on the front of her wedding invitation envelopes.  I was able to find this one that I borrowed from a stampin' friend.  The bride has been riding her bike for years as she goes to college, therefore the bike.

Wildlife Card

I made this card for one of my kids.  He had a pretty neat experience and I wanted to congratulate him on it with a card.  It took about six weeks and three tries for the card to actually make it to him, but it was worth it!   We're proud of the great example he is.       

Stamp Sets:  Wildlife, Fundamental Phrases, Flannel
Colors:  Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Handsome Hunter, Natural Ivory
Tools:  Blender Pens, Tearing Edge, Sponges

Happy 40th

I keep forgetting to put this card up.  I made this last November for a good friend, who obviously turned 40! 

For all the "40's" in the background, I just typed "40" a bunch of times, and then changed the font for each one of them and printed it on card stock.

Stamp Sets:  Doodle Alphabet, Classic Alphabet
Colors:  Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, More Mustard
Designer Series Paper:  Rockabilly

Primary Wordle

I just made this Primary Wordle to use as a binder cover. After I was done, it gave me the opportunity to share it with others, so I am, just in case anyone else would like something similar. I love Wordle!
