Our 5th Item for Card Making

Well, I was going to make background paper and then layer on top of it, but I couldn't cover it up.  So this is our final project for Card Making, Friday, August 24.  I couldn't get a good picture that truly showed the colors, but it is a very crisp image in person.  The stamps are all from Papertrey Ink.  You can see their wonderful creative ideas at their blog.  If you visit some of the older posts you will see their creations with this floral stamp set.  Be sure to check out the blogs of their designers too, especially Dawn McVey.  She's my favorite.

Projects for Card Making June 15th

Well I know it has been a while since my last post.  School and Child Care keep me very busy.  Life is a little calmer now that it is summer.  Our next Card Making event at Peace Lutheran Church in Greencastle, Indiana is Friday, June 15th beginning at 6:00 pm.  The past two months I have been finishing one of my sample projects while the participants have been creating.  This month I am ahead of the game.  I have my three projects done. I am going to post them here so you know what you have to look forward to.

The rickrack trim and flower die cuts are from dies you can find at Papertrey Ink.  They have some of my most favorite items.  The label punches are from Stampin Up! as are the stamps I used.  The paper is from a DCWV paper stack Linen Closet both the print and the plain packs I purchased at JoAnn Fabrics.  I used the smallest size paper pack.

The third picture is a matchbook to hold a gift card.  You can find the inspiration that I used here.  Mary's website is one of my favorites.

We hope to have a big crowd on June 15th.   We always have fun and it is good therapy!
