Note Tag Thank You Card

Hi everyone, I hope your Monday is starting off great!  I'm having breakfast with my friend this morning, it's nice to get together and chat for a couple hours!

The baby shower was this past Saturday afternoon and all of our hard work paid off, everything looked so cute and my daughter and her husband really enjoyed themselves too!  They received many nice gifts for the "little peanut".

Yesterday there was a cute trick on how to use your Note Tag Punch in a different way, so I went to the craft room and created a couple of simple cards to share with you.  Dawn O. has a great video on her blog that explains how to make the window with the punch.  You can view the video HERE.


Sorry but I used retired DSP to try this out with, Sweet Sorbet.  Lovely Amazing You is not in the catalog but can be found HERE

Punch: Note Tag and flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack
Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Ink: Pool Party
Card stock: Whisper White, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Pistachio Pudding-retired
Pearls

Come back Wednesday and see another way to use this punch, I will be doing a birthday card for that one!

See you soon!  Mary

So Sorry

Today I'm sharing a card that I made to send to my husband's cousin wife.  She has been in ICU for the last three weeks, she was in a very bad car accident on June 1st and her recovery has been very slow, she was hurt pretty bad.  I asked if it would be ok for me to send her a card and they said yes.  They don't want any visitors at this time, which is understandable.


The inside sentiment is "that things are so tough right now".  I used the new Brick Wall embossing folder.  I lightly sponged it with some Crumb Cake ink.

Stamp sets: So Sorry-retired, Painted Petals-retired, and Papillon Potpourri
Card stock: Whisper White and Blushing Bride
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake
Basic Pearls

February 2015 Paper Pumpkin

Well, I finally got around to making some of the Thank You cards from the February 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit!  It is so nice to have something that you don't have to think about and just have it all ready to put together when you need it!

This was not a easy card to take a picture of, but I think you can see most of it.

Well, I'm off to make the crib skirt my the grand baby's crib.  Mary

Remembering Your Birthday

Well, I got my other card made last night, whew, just in time to mail it tomorrow so that Dad gets it by Tuesday.  I took my parents out for pizza yesterday, which they both really enjoyed and there was even some left-over for a quick and easy meal for them to have for lunch tomorrow!

I found this card over on Connie Stewart's blog and she was kind enough to make a video on how to make this card.  Connie calls it The Donut card!  You can watch the video HERE.

It is really a very simple card to make, so I hope you try making one too!

Stamp sets: Remembering Your Birthday and Wondrous Wreath
Card stock: Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo

Walk in the Wild

Oh gee, I looked at the calendar this morning and realize that Sunday is Father's Day and I didn't have a card made for my Dad!!  So I got busy last night and made one before it got to late to give or mail to him.

I bought this set because I thought I could use it make some nice masculine cards with and it sure does! I really like to pair it with the Work of Art stamp set because you can add some color to the image when you don't have a lot of time to color the image.  I like how well it turned out too.


Stamp sets: Work of Art, May 2014 Paper Pumpkin and Walk in the Wild-retired
Card stock: Whisper White, Soft Sky and Early Espresso
Inks: Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Early Espresso
DSP: retired
Banner punch, 1/8th Circle punch

Thanks for dropping in to see me, I like company!  Mary

Brushstrokes Flag

Well I finally am back to my blog!  I've been busy make items for the baby's room.  I made a simple window topper with Yellow and White Chevron pattern material and since I bought enough to sink a battleship, I made two throw pillows for the room too!  Now all I have to do is make a crib skirt and I'm pretty much done, unless I can think of some more projects to make with the material.

I finally place a order for some new Stampin' Up! toys and I really need to start thinning out my stash of older stamps.  Oh where to sell them though.

This stamp was on my list and then I took it off and every time I do that I always wish I had left it on.  So this time I went ahead and got it first thing.  The inspiration for this card just popped into my head when I was outside with the dogs and I hustle them back in and went right into the craft room to create this!  I'm glad it turned out the way I envisioned it.

I think this is the perfect card for the Fourth of July, Veteran's Day, Memorial Day or if you have some one in a patriotic play, this would be a nice card to give too!  Now, I always seem to have trouble with Real Red ink, no matter how long I let it dry, it seems to get everywhere, grr.  To make the "blue field" on the flag, I used a Ink Spot from one of my past Paper Pumpkin sets, I just dragged it across the areas that I had masked off!  You could easily use a full size ink pad for this too, but I don't have one, yet!  It gives it a nice rustic look.

Stamps used: Pictogram Punches and Brushstrokes
Card stock: Whisper White and Real Red
Ink: Night of Navy and Real Red
Gold Glimmer Paper
Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack-star
Triple Banner punch
Gold Baker's Twine

I hope your summer is off to a GREAT start too!  Mary
