People Like You - FMS119

I had so much fun with this Sketch Challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.   The stamp used (People Like You) is from the Occasional Catalog and is just STUNNING!!!!  I decided to do some "manual labor" and hand-cut the image out but I love how it completes the card.    This is the first card I have used the Lattice Bigz Die on and I am kickin' myself for not playing with it sooner! 

I hope you enjoy my card!

Teapot Card - Modified Case

I saw this card on Addicted to Stamping blog and I HAD to case it!   This is my take on the card for my Monthly Club to make this month.   Wouldn't you feel incredibly special if you received this card from a friend/family member?  I thought so too!    This card does not fit in a standard A2 envelope, but don't worry, you can make one with our Envelope Punch Board.    

I hope you enjoy the project!

Fishin' Around - Hair Gel Card

Here is another sample for my January classes.   One of my Stampin Ladies asked me how to make a "Hair Gel" card, and I said why don't we do one in class???   So here it is!!    You can view the technique step-by-step at Splitcoaststampers

You would want to use a padded envelope if you mail this kind of card to help avoid the "gel bag" getting punctured.
