Simple Sunday-Mason Jar Swap card

   Do you love finding new uses for items as much as I do?  Well, when I was looking at the Internet the other day I found a card that looked like a Mason Jar that was made using the envelope punch board.  What a find!!! That is a great simple card I will be swapping at convention this year.

New Supplies Used:

Moonlight Designer paper stack
Envelope Punch board
Feel Goods stamp set
Blackberry Bliss ink
Whisper White and Crushed Curry card stock
Linen Thread

   I have had a great week and half attending a Davis Family Reunion, and visiting with my granddaughter Abbi.  Yes, we stamped together. She made some adorable cards for her family and silly me forgot to take pictures.  Now, I am in the last stages of getting ready for convention.  Can't wait to see what I will learn this year.

Scrappin Saturday-Knollwood scrap card

    What do you do with leftover scraps of designer paper?  I save mine, but sometimes they just accumulate.  Well, when I went to Knollwood last week I thought of a way to use some of those scraps.  The ladies loved the card I created and had fun making their version.

Supplies used:

Scraps from a very old designer series paper stack
Card stock from retired in-colors
Flower punches
Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set
Window punch

  There were lots of pieces but very little stamping.  A perfect combination for my  Knollwood Retirement Village stamping friends.

3-D Thursday, convention swap

   One of the things I love to swap at convention are 3-D items.  So, this is the item I have made this year to swap.  I used the hostess set called Bloom with Hope which was just perfect for experimenting some more with my Blendibilities.  There is a spot inside to hold a special candy.  I am thinking a truffle of some sort. 

New supplies used:

Bloom with Hope stamp set
Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive  Blendibilities
Strawberry Slush thick baker's twine

Returning supplies used:

Pistachio Pudding chevron ribbon
White embossing powder
Versa mark
Pistachio Pudding card stock
  What would you make for your 3-D swap?

Wednesday Wow-Super Hero Birthday cards

   I knew this new photopolymer stamp set would be just perfect for some birthday cards for my grandsons.  I did however have to go on the internet to even find out what the super heroes looked like.  So, this card is for Brayden who just turned 9. 

   I thought the Circle Label thinlit was the perfect way to show off both Batman and Robin.  It was fun to make and I can't wait to see Brayden's face when he opens it.

  I couldn't leave out Naij who likes the Green Lantern.  I have to admit, I never heard about him when I was younger so I really had no clue what he looked like.
  But, I did read about his special ring and tried to show that on the inside.  What do you think?  Did I pull this off?  I guess when the kids come this weekend I will really be able to tell.
