Bridal Shower Gifts

Here is a matching card and box I made for my future sister-in-law's bridal shower. I can't wait to give them to her.

I made the box base with the white paper backing that comes with the Designer Series Paper packages. I stamped the box after I figure the measurement for the box. I stamped on the shiny side of the white paper thinking that it will look better but I used the wrong ink. I used classic ink instead of StazOn ink. The images keeps on smudging everytime I touch the box. sigh! Hope you learn a lesson here from my mistake.

The rose is made using an Ornament Punch. Here is a link to the rose if you are interest in making it.

The image on the card is from the She's All That stamp set (retired). Haven't use this set for a long time. i had to brush of the dust before I use it. ha,ha!

Here's what is inside the box. I crochet 2 dish towels and a tea towel topper. Something for her to use in her home.

I'm off to the bridal shower. Thank you for stopping by today!

Sailboat Happy Birthday

Good day everyone! Another card for my sister. This is a masculine birthday card. What do you think of this one? I'm not very good at making a masculine card. I always have to think a long time to make one of these cards.

I use the Winds of Grace stamp set for this card. The stamp set is retired. I'm glad I got because I really like it and I don't have a lot of masculine stamp sets. I tend to order the flowery ones first before any other sets. The card is really simple so not much to say about it. Pretty much self explanatory.

I still have girly cards to make and this is another kind of card I rarely make too. I have think, think, think. I'm thinking about making cards with cupcakes on it or something like that. Well, I'm off to make them. Will show you all what I come up with.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! Have a great day!

For The Teacher

Hello, everyone! Hope you're having a good day so far.

Here is a box and card set I made for my daughter's flute teacher. 

I made the box base with a 12" x 12" Chocolate Chip card stock and the lid with an 8-1/2" x 8-1/2" Bajah Breeze card stock.

I die cut the flower with the Fun Flowers Die in Bajah Breeze card stock, emboss it with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and then sponge the edges. I adhere the flower with Dimensional. Then I add a Rose Red rose in the middle of the flower.

Here is a matching card. The flower is done with the Blossom Punch. I find the other flower on the box is too big so I use the punch flower instead.

I did the flower the same way as the one on the box.

Here is what is inside the box. I crochet a couple of dish cloths for the teacher. My first time crocheting them.

I made the box and card according to the dish cloths colours. It is so nice that everything matches.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a good day!

With Sympathy

Happy Monday everyone! Here is another card for my sister. She wants some sympathy cards. This is what I come up with. I punched two flowers using the Blossom Punch. The punch can be found in the 2012 Occasion Mini Catalogue. Then I put the punched flowers in the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and run it through the Big Shot. sponge the edges of the flowers them adhere them onto the card with Dimensional. The blue background image on the card is the Fine Lace background stamp that is retired. I like it a lot even though it is retired. The pink piece at the bottom of the card is the Lace Ribbon Border Punch. I just stick it under the Designer Series Paper. The rest of the card is pretty much self explanatory.

I'm off to make some more samples for my sister. She'll have a lot to choose from.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Have a good day.

Happy Retirement

Hello, everyone! It is good to be stamping again. I think it's been a month I've not stamp. That's a long time for me.

Before I got sick my sister asked me to make her different occasions cards. This card is one of the ones she want me to make. I've never make a retirement card before. Something I don't really think of making either.

I use the FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set Fresh Vintage that I got with my order. I really like the flowers and the swirls on this stamp. I'm not sure what to do with the other stamps in this set yet but I'm sure I'll think of something. Have you gotten any of the SAB sets this year yet? You only have one more week left to get it for FREE. Sale-A-Bration ends March 31, 2012. Can you believe March is almost over?

Well, I'm off to make other occasion cards for my sister to look at. She'll have a few different ones to choose from.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a good day!

I'm Still Here

I don't have a project to show you today. Just want to let you all know I'm still around. I have been really sick for the past two weeks. Busy the week before that. I got the flu that kept me in bed and on the couch most of the time. My back hurt from laying around and sleeps so much. I watched a lot of TV which it was a waste of time. I rather be creating than watch TV.

My church had our annual Revival Meeting with Dr. John Goetsch last week and I missed two nights of the meeting because I was sick. Although I can watch the service on our church website, I rather listen to Dr. Goetsch in person. I have been listening to him speak for our revival meetings since 2001 and never missed a service until this year. I was able to listen to him the last day he was here. I went to church and also sang in the choir. How was I able to do that while I was still sick? By God's grace of course. I can never do that on my own. Something I needed to hear that day and I'm glad I went. I was so tired I dropped onto the couch right away when I got home. It was all worth it though.

Here is a video of one of the messages.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I'll have projects to show you soon after I clean up the messes around my house while I was sick. Having 3 kids around can create lots of messes. My wonderful husband was able to help me clean some which I'm grateful for. He did the cooking too. He cooks really yummy food.

Have a good day!
