Stamping in Burwell 6/29/2010

There was a nice turn out for the stamping get-together in Burwell. Hopefully everyone had a good time. I know I did. Here are the three cards that I took down for the ladies to make. The band aid card the dimension was created by running the card through the Big Shot with a card stock piece underneath to create the raised part. This card will fit in a small, regular envelope.
The gift card purses were made from a 6 x 6 piece of decorated paper folded in half with 7/8 inch cut at an angle off the sides and the one note die-cut for the top.The lemonade card uses vellum for the plastic glass. If you need a pattern, just use a small plastic cup and trace around it. It's a cute card, but wouldn't work very well to put in an envelope.

I did purchase the Elements of Style stamp set so here are a few cards that I made up quickly so I could show to the ladies.
I also purchased the textured impressions square lattice embossing folder and I thought it would add to the flip flops we made last time. So cute, don't you think!

Stamping in Burwell 6/5/2010

Here are the cards we made in Burwell the first part of June. As always a great time with the stamping ladies. Terri brought these two samples. I had to purchase this set, Elements of Style.

Here are the cards that I took for the ladies to make.

Here are the two cards that Pat shared with the group. The first card used the saran wrap technique and the second card used the butterfly punch to make the pansy flowers.

Here are a few other cards that I just brought along to show.

Stamping @ Ferne's

March 16, 2010
These are the three cards that we made at Ferne's house this afternoon. There were seven ladies that seemed to enjoy making cards to fill their late afternoon. I had to bring the terrific tulip set out and dust it off to make the Sympathy card. I still love this set. I used Pearl Ex on the tulip's second layer. Really adds a nice shine.

Found this Easter bonnet idea from someone's blog. I made a pattern so that the card will fit into a 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" envelope. The flower once again is made out of layers of different sized circles. The hat brim opens up and is attached by the fold at the bottom of the card. This was my Easter card, but can be used for many occasions. I used two-way glue and some dazzling diamonds glitter on the edges of the flower layers.
The last card is pretty basic, but again could be used for just about any occasion.
I had a great time and can't wait to get together with the ladies again in about a month.

Rosette flowers

This isn't the clearest picture, but my good camera is at school. At least you get the idea. I wanted to try the rosette flowers using circle punches. The directions that I've seen used 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", and 1 3/8" punches, but I didn't have the 3/4" so I used a 1/2" punch. The back has a magnet on it so I plan to put it on a file cabinet at school.

Burwell Workshop 2/5/2010

Here are the items that I demonstrated at the workshop in Burwell. I always have a great time stamping with this group of ladies and had a chance to meet two new stampers. I'm already thinking of more ideas for next time.

Here are a few other examples of the mini milk carton.
