It’s still Monday, right?
Time goes too fast, can’t keep the days straight. I was working down here until 2:00am last night. I designed a beautiful card for a party that Judy L. is hosting here on Wednesday, August 22nd. When inspiration strikes I just have to keep going! So, this afternoon I designed another card for the party with a fun fold. Her stampers are all experienced so I designed the cards with some extra little techniques!
This morning I held my Kismet class, (which is 5 of my favorite cards this month) from 9-12. Tomorrow I run the same class from 3-8. My thought was to share a couple of the cards from this class! Here goes with card number 1:
This is a fun fold card. The little flap where the stamp image is holds the picture portion closed. The stamp set I used is called Postage Due, it’s on page 108 of our SU catalog. The DSP is a companion print called Fan Fair, check it out on page 165 in the SU catalog. The image with the bicycle is stamped with Raspberry Ripple ink.
You know that I like to finish off the insides of all my cards, so here is the inside view. You can see how the smaller portion on the right folds to the inside and is held closed with the “stamp flap”.
As promised here is card number 2:
Isn’t this card just too cute?!! I totally love the Perfectly Preserved stamp set! It is so great to stamp an image and then pull out our framelits and run it all through the Big Shot and have perfectly cut pictures to apply to our cards. The DSP used is called Orchard Harvest. Again, I had to let you peek at the inside of the card. It’s so important to have a finished product when you are done with class. You could stamp any verse you want inside, but, it still needs to have some continuity to the front of the card! Don’t you agree?
Well, I will try and write every day now. The house has been busy with family coming and going. My oldest son and his wife, (Carl and Christine), have sold their home in Oklahoma and have put in an offer, that was accepted, on a home in Erin Wisconsin. We are so thrilled to get them back home! Looking forward to seeing all 7 of our Grandchildren on a very regular basis!
