A couple more cards done.

I decided to make a non-golfing card for my hubby since he doesn't knock that little white ball around a green field so this is what I came up with. The Old Truck stamp is retired but I stamped it with Burnt Umber P.H. ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut it into 4 pieces, sponged the edges then reassembled on the brown cardstock. The large letters are alphabet stickers from the Sands of Time collection as is the patterned paper then I stamped the rest of the text using my Kinder-Bet set, cut, sponged and reassembled. Turned out rather cool, I think!

And I'm still working on my Christmas cards! This card was from a challenge on Paper Wings using the colors green, brown, orange, and white. Text was allowed to be done in black. So, I started with a piece of orange cardstock folded to make the base of the card. I found a scrap piece of brown cardstock and cut it in half on the diagonal and adhered. I also had a piece of green cardstock and cut to layer as shown. The white is stamped using the Snowflakes set and Orangerie, Jardin Moss, Burnt Umber, and Starry Night P.H. inks (I stamped off once before stamping on the white for a more subtle look). The Merry Christmas is stamped in Noir P.H. ink from the Whimsical Greetings set. I added some Stickles glitter in blue, green, and crystal to some centers of the snowflakes for some extra bling. Definitely not traditional!



I'm starting to get my clothes and stuff packed to leave Wednesday morning. I'm getting so excited to see my friends and have fun with TAC™'s new stamps, etc. So, if you email me don't expect a reply until I get home on the 22nd and get rested! I have ordered 20 catalogs and have 5 already reserved! Let me know if you want one held for you! They are $4.95 plus $4.80 shipping (priority) with the $4.95 refunded if you place a $100 or more net order! I don't know if I will post again until I get back. I will upload pics of our projects to my .com site in the gallery so you can see what we did. Look for the Projects album on the 2nd page. Happy stamping!
