L'Shana Tova

I finally got around to making a banner for the New Year. I had great aspirations of decorating each panel with flowers or other "prettiness" but time got away from me. Still its nice - and I used a bunch of my stash!!  Maybe 15 or so sheets of 12 x 12 paper that I had been "saving" for good - bet you have some of that too!!

The paper is from Scrap In A Snap - a now defunct company for whom I was a consultant. Everything was cut with my new Expression - I used Basic George for the triangles and the letters.

My sister should get her gift tomorrow so over the w/e I'll post the pix.

L'Shana Tova to those that celebrate and thanks to all for stopping by!

A fast card!

Here is a fast and easy card I sent to my DD this weekend. The flower stamp is one from Gina K designs. I was smart when I first got the set and stamped quite a few with memento black ink and colored them with copics in several color schemes. They've sat on my desk for months and every once and a while I decide to use one in a card. I just ran some purple c/s through the Big Shot with the SU! dots embossing  folder - I had a certainly celery butterfly cut from the SU! butterfly die in my stash so I also ran it through the dots embossing folder - put a little pearl "ribbon" from Hobby Lobby on for the body -attached with a glue dot - and had a super fast card - took me like 5 mins - but thats only cuz the "ingredients" were mostly done. Oh yeah - I also used the SU!hole punching template thingie (whose proper name escapes me right now LOL) to make the little triangle design in the know - for a nonSU! demo - I sure to have ALOT and use ALOT of their supplies LOL

. I am hoping to create a little "stash" of ingredients for future fast cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Sis!

Two days in a row - can you believe it?? Although the pictures don't look like it- these are actually the same color IRL. One of these days I really gotta find a better way to take pictures of projects.

I made my sister a gift for her bday - but I think she stops by here - so you're gonna have to wait till she sees it but I'm gonna "risk" the card!

Supplies - Basic Grey patterend paper, Fiskars border punch, circle punch Ek Sucess, glitter, scor-tape, SU! always artichoke cardstock, SU! stamps  vintage labels and whimsical words (both retired Sale a bration stamps) and lace ribbon from Hobby Lobby.

Thanks for stopping by! Andrea

A card!! Yeah!!

I finally got to play with paper!!!

I made a quick card for my DD who is spending her sophmore high school semester in a semester school in the North Carolina mountains.

 Its an amazing program and opportunity for her - but needless to say I miss her - so y'all may be seeing lots and lots of cards. So far I've sent her several from my stash.

Today's card uses some retired SU! patterned paper,SU! retired barely banana grosgrain ribbon, SU! tempting turqouise cardstock. As well as punches (y'all know I love punches) I used the SU! tab punch and the two step bird punch. The I love you stamp is an oldy clear stamp from ages ago and I have no clue who made it. Oh yeah - the border is a fiskars (?) border punch - I'll have to check on that

Here is a close up on the "trio". I've noticed that many of the cards I seem to admire are grouping details together so I thought I'd give it a try.
