Feel Better Soon Card

Hello everyone.  Now, before you faint, yes I am posting twice in one week.  But I have made a couple of things lately that I wanted to share.  I needed to send out a Get Well card.  I had been seeing this technique called Triple Stamping on some beautiful cards and so I decided to try it.  It was so easy!  Learn about it by watching this video.  Here is my Get Well Card using this technique.
  • Stamp - Fabulous Flowers Set (SU!)
  • Inks - Summer Sun, Green Galore and Pretty in Pink (all SU!)
  • Stash - papers, pop dots, sentiment stamp
  • Card Base - 5x7
  • White - 4x6, 3x5 and 2x4
  • Green - 4.5 x 6.5, 3.5 x 5.5 and 2.5 x and 4.5

I stamped the image with the 3 different inks.  I green paper to each layer and began to stack them.  I stacked the largest 2 layers right on top of each other.  I put pop dots on the smallest layer for dimension.

I stamped the sentiments on a small strip that I rounded the corners on with my corner rounder.  I then put pop dots on it and placed it on the card.

I am very pleased with the way this card came out.  The colors and everything just came together well.  Leave me some love telling me what you think of my card.  Until next time...

Easter Tags

Hello everyone!  Easter season is upon us and I made a few treat bags.  I took them to my scrappy friends I scrap with each month.  They loved them.  Here they are!

  • Stamp - Chocolate Bunny by SU!; Happy Easter - $1 bin at Michaels
  • Inks - Close to Cocoa, Basic Brown, Chocolate Chip and Glorious Green (all SU!); Tattered Rose (Tim Holtz)
  • Punch - 1 3/4 in circle (SU!)
  • Stash - white tag, button and raffia
I stamped the bunny image 3 times in 3 different colors of ink.  I wanted to make it look like different flavors of chocolate.  I then stamped the sentiment and punched it out with my cricle punch.

I edged all the pieces with the TH Tattered Rose ink to give it a more vintage look.  Topped the tag off with a button and some rafia to complete the treats.

These tags were simple and easy to make.  So if you are needing to make a large amount, think about using this design.  Let me know what you all think about them and I hope to see you back here soon.  Have a very Happy Easter!  Until next time...
