THREE projects for you today!

Yes, I said THREE! :D These are all from my last Sale-a-bration workshop last Sunday. We had a great time! And actually, you'll see three versions of one of the projects, so you'll actually see FIVE!!! Woah, what a BARGAIN for YOU! :D

Here we go!

So, here is your three-fer. :D We actually did the Real Red card, but I wanted to show everyone what I mean about changing the feel of the whole card JUST by changing the color! That's ALL I changed! (I borrowed the stamp set from Amy; please pray for her dad's health. Thanks!) These are SIP cards; we did use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get positioning right, but you obviously don't have to!!!

So, the recipe for this one:

Stamp set: Bird on a Branch

Card stocks: on all three - Whisper White, Basic Black, Sahara Sand. From left to right - Mellow Moss, Real Red, Brilliant Blue

Inks: Mellow Moss, Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Basic Black

Accessories: So Swirly Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel and cartridges, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Simple, elegant cards! We stamped the saying "Thinking of you" frmo the set on the inside, too.

My hostess requested a Mother's Day project, so they could all get it done for their moms. :D So here's what I came up with. It's pink and has bling! :D

Card Stocks: Pink Pirouette, Pink Passion

Inks: Pretty in Pink, White craft

Stamp Sets: Three Little Words, A Little Birthday Cheer (inside), Big Deal Alpha

Accessories: Romance Standard Stampin' Around Wheel, standard handle and cartridge, white embossing powder, BIG SHOT and Top Note die (:D), 2-Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Pretties Kit

YES, we all sparkled when we got done, but since the glitter is cosmetic-grade, who's complaining??? :D

Here's the final project - it's a little blurry in the center, sorry - dumb scanner!

These were FUN!!! I'll give you step-by-step on this one; you won't believe how cute and easy these are! :D
First, the "recipe" - stuff we used. You can substitute anything but the 1" circle punch! :D
Stamp sets: Crazy for Cupcakes, Just Buzzin' By, Simple Friendship
Card stock: Apricot Appeal
Inks: Apricot Appeal, Basic Brown
Accessories: 2-Way Glue Pen, 1" circle punch
Cut card stock at 2.5"x5". Fold in half. Unfold; center 1" circle punch, lining up the side that's toward the fold AT the fold. (Hmmmm. LMK if you need a picture of that one!) Punch out the hole; decorate as desired. Fold back over and center stamp on back of punched hole. Glue closed with glue; put some in center of image and allow to dry thoroughly - so it's repositionable. Put Lifesaver in - it fits PERFECTLY!!! :D
Have FUN!!! I hope you've enjoyed today's shares! Thank you those of you who are consistently visiting me; I REALLY appreciate you! :D I hope you're inspired to take the time to STAMP something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
