Easter Blessings

Happy Easter everyone! When I was at the stamping retreat, Sheila Alexander taught us how to make the teepee style card with 4 1/4 inch squares. Someone else suggested making one with 6 inch squares, so that is what I did for an Easter decoration to give my mother in law who is just getting out of the hospital/rehab after many weeks. Here are the pictures of the 3 outer sides.

When you want to put it in an envelope, you unfold it and it lays flat. This one will be hand delivered, so it is ok if one corner peeks out of the 6.5 x 8.5 inch envelope. The smaller ones we made at retreat fit a standard A2 envelope. If you want more ideas checkout my Pinterest board.

another alligator card

I instructed this Joy fold card at my Sisters in Stamping group this past Wednesday.  This is the first time I have made this Joy fold in a vertical fashion. I used velcro to help keep it closed. I just love these funny stamps from Fun Stampers Journey.

Punny Punny

I signed up for the Bloom Box program at Fun Stampers Journey. Each month an exclusive stamp set and the materials to make 4 cards are sent to your house for only $24.95, plus tax and shipping. You can see the stamp set for the month you are joining by opening the tab called "Bloom Box" on my page. (link above) You must agree to accept shipments for six months. The next five months will be a surprise. I love surprises and I really thought the March stamp set "Punny Punny" was really something to smile about. Here are the first two cards from the kit. If you know me, you know I have to change something even the first time. I decided to mask the answer to the question of the pun and stamp it not he inside of the card. If you gots to know, follow the links above to see this month's Bloom Box.Also the alligator card called for the same kind of sequins that are on the pepper card, but I chose to leave them off. The kit comes with a full color direction booklet. This month's had 11 pages, including two tips and techniques. The technique of embossing with plastic stencils was new to me.

Not only will this stamp set be a fun one to send to kids, I expect to use it for thinking of you, sending a smile to my adult friends and family, too. Come back in a day or two to check out the remaining two cards.

Sisters in Stamping

Here is the card that my "seestahs" made today at our meeting. Thanks Ann Marie for designing the card and lining up the stamps perfectly on the MISTIs and thanks Sandy for bringing the extra set of stamps and MISTIs so the lines were not too long. The image is from a Tim Holtz Stampendous set called Flower Garden. I watercolored the flower with watercolor pencils. I am so lucky to have these ladies to play with every Wednesday afternoon!
