More My Favorite Things…

Hello. Hope you had a good weekend. My dear Shari was in town to teach with me over the weekend at Simply Scrapbooks. I love Shari, I love that store, I love the people there. Thank you to all who came to the classes. It was a full-house and so much fun! (And for those of you at the crop on Saturday – thank you for the help with the baby shower invite. I finalized the design today and am thrilled. Could not have done it without you!)

And by the way – a big happy birthday to Shari. Ken, Colin, Roxie and I adore you, girlfriend. XOXO.

I also hope your holiday was a good one. Big hugs and thanks go out to all those heroes out there… and to their families, too.

I thought I would share my last projects for my guest spot over at My Favorite Things. I adore those folks – they are so nice. SO nice. (And their products are made in the US – you know I love that.) For both of these cards, I used the die from the Die-namics Framed Greetings Die and Stamp Set, just oriented differently.

For this first one, I stamped the mailbox, colored it with Copics and then coated it with Glossy Accents. Once it was dry, I stamped over the whole piece with the background. Glossy Accents are fabulous for resist!

Making mini cards is such fun…

I colored that strip on the top of the card with a matching Copic Marker. And this little girl is actually holding mail in her hands, but I masked it off and tucked flowers in instead…

I used a tiny dot of Black Enamel Accents for the eyes. Gives it more life.

So the girl and mailbox are actually from the same stamp. I just cut them apart and did a bit of masking. So fun to get more from your stamps…

By the way, that adorable green dotted paper is from Hero Arts. It is heavy-weight paper with a white back, so it is perfect to cut into note cards. Love it. And 2Peas is selling all the patterns by the sheet instead of in the packs. Click HERE to see the yummy rainbow of colors…

Off to watch some mindless tv and listen to the hubby play the guitar. Night.
