A Quick Fold

A quick couple of folds and you have yourself a cute envelope pocket. We made these at my last workshop and everyone including myself were amazed and (wowed) how easy and fast they were. I even tried some with wrapping paper and they turned out great. For these two I used the Dashing paper from Stampin up.

never been far away

Hi everyone,
I never have been far away. I just can not find the time to post my cards on my blog. I have several projects in the works and hope to post them soon.
For some strange reason I can not log on to the Splitcoaststamper's site or any of the blogs sponsored by them. Has this happened to any of you? The page comes up unavailable. I checked the site on a friends computer and had no problems.
Here is my promise to post some exciting cards soon.

So KInd with buckle

This so kind buckle card was a big hit at my last workshop. The "priceless" stamp set worked out great. Soft sky card stock was perfect for the colors on this card. The swirls and flower were embossed with versamark ink and clear embossing powder. This is also a card I have submitted for another Bingo number at Barbs's blog.She is running a great Bingo game on her blog. She has challenged all players to make a card using the In colors from Stampin up.

Enjoy tag and cards

Beautiful cards and fun to make. One card I CASED from the catalog and the second was to show a different way to cut out the flower. I demonstrated the fake stitching at my workshop and the guest made the tag to go with some candy in a cello bag. We had fun.

This is my last post until next week when we get back from our camping trip.

I hope everyone gets lots of stamping done. I will miss my blogger friends.

so safron tent topper card

This tent topper card was fun to do at my workshop yesterday.

The flower was inked first with so safron and the edges were tipped with regal rose. Window punch used for to show the words. My fellow stampers at the workshop loved the designer two sided paper.

I have packing to do and shopping also. We are leaving Tuesday for a five night camping trip. I am trying to decided how I can stamp on this trip. I do not think I am ready for the withdrawal pains.
