Perfect Punches Meets Elegant Lines

Hello again! I am finally getting used to my new daily routine and found a few minutes to make this very quick card this morning. I love this card and it literally took less than five minuutes to make. This is one of the cards we will be making at my birthday card class on September 18th. If you have not already registered for this class, please do so very soon so I can be sure to have materials prepared for you.
This card is a CASE of a card I saw on splitcaoast made by Jen Sannes. I didn't change much about it except that I used Rich Razzleberry ribbon and cardstock for the card base. I figure if you can use rich Razzleberry, you might as well! I love Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry together. It's one of my favorite color combinations! Soft Suede accents them both nicely, too.
Have a great day and I hope to have more cards to post soon, so keep checking back!
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Perfect Punches
Ink: Soft Suede
Paper: Rich Razzleberry CS, Soft Suede CS, Baja Breeze CS, Very Vanilla CS
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Elegant Lines folder, Big Shot, Dimensionals, RR Satin Ribbon, Glue Dots, Wide Oval punch

I finally got a chance to sit down tonight and stamp. Each day this week, I hoped to get the chance and it just didn't happen. Now that we have a week of school behind us and are settling into our new routine, I am hoping to get more opportunities to stamp.

This is an official Marla Reed original! I didn't CASE this one- can you believe it? My sweet boy started Kindergarten last Monday and I intended to make a card to send for his teacher and her aide on the first day, but it just didn't happen. I am going to send these in on Monday to thank them both for helping him have a great first week of school. I used the set from the Summer Mini catalog called, "First Day". I think it is such a cute set and I bought it mostly for scrapbooking, but it makes great teacher cards, too. If you are interested in ordering this set or any of the others from the Summer mini, please contact me as soon as possible because Tuesday, August 31st is the last day that we can order from the mini catalog. The Holiday mini starts the following day, September 1st. If you would like a copy of it, please leave me a message, give me a call, or email me and I will arrange to get a copy to you.

I hope that you enjoyed the card! I hope to have lots more for you in the near future. Take care until then!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Thank You Kindly, First Day
Papers: Real Red CS, Old Olive CS, Whisper White CS
Ink: Staz On, Real Red marker, Old Olive marker, Blush Blossom marker, Early Espresso marker
Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Stamp-a-ma-jig, 1 3/8" circle punch, Scalloped Circle punch Pin It

So Sorry!

Hello! I just wanted to take a minute to say that I am so sorry I have not been blogging much lately! With everyone in my family having birthdays this month and also getting ready to send my son off to Kindergarten, August has been a whirlwind month for me. My daughter is going to Nana's house tomorrow, so I'm hoping to squeeze in a few minutes of stamping. I should have something to post later this week. Thanks for checking in!

Until later,

Holiday Mini Preview!

Hello! Sorry it has taken me so long to get a new card posted. My camera battery died while I was on vacation and I didn't have my charger with me. I got home and realized it wasn't here either and that's when I realized that I left it at my parents' house. I had to wait for my mom to mail it to me before I could take this picture. I actually made this card a few days ago.

This card is made with a couple of products from the holiday mini catalog, which will start on September 1st. The background is made with the new spiderweb embossing folder. I brayered Whisper White craft over it. It didn't work perfectly because I had a few smudges and smears. Oh well! I will just have to keep trying until I perfect the technique.

That adorable witch and the sentiment are from a new set for Halloween called "Fangtastic" also from the Holiday mini. I have my holiday minis on their way, so let me know if you would like one and I will get one to you once they arrive. You will also be able to view it online beginning September 1st.

Don't forget: My tax free sale will end on Sunday. If you are interested in ordering, you must call or email your order to me by 9:00 p.m. on Sunday evening. Also, the sales period for the Summer Mini catalog will end on August 31st, so if you want anything from it, be sure to order before the 31st.

Have a great day! It is rainy here, so maybe I will get a little more stamping done today!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Fang-tastic, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Stazon, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Blushing Bride Stampin' Write markers, Whisper White Craft ink
Paper: Basic Black CS, Pumpkin Pie CS, Rich Razzleberry CS, Old Olive CS, Whisper White CS
