Grad Gifts


I have a graduation to attend this Friday. Eight of my 29 grads are attending too and I wanted to give them all a little favour. I made these Kit Kat sheaths for them and used a 'W is for wonderful' stamp from SU! to decorate the top! Hope they like them.

Well, this week the Design Team at DCM have come up with this idea for you to play with, we hope you'll enjoy it.
TEXT...
definition... the main body of matter in a book or manuscript. the actual wording of anything written or printed, short passage of scripture, etc
We'd like you to somehow incorporate text into your cards this week - not just one word.. but a portion of TEXT... like a poem, or newspaper print, Caligraphy, Even rip up an old text book and use some of the paper from it, there are masses of possibilities here, so let your imaginations run riot and let us see you texting to your heart's content!

I made this card for the Show this week - how about that???


Card for a friend


I finished my marking Very Happy I wish it was last week so I had another week to stamp!! Laughing I have to go back to work on Monday. As soon as I finished the paperwork, I made a birthday card for a friend. It's smaller than average so the stamp looks bigger on the scan - it's all SU! - the Mixed Bouquet set and the Happy Birthday is from the God's Blessings sayings. I used Ballet Blue, Taken with Teal, Rose Red and Basic Black ink, Brocade Blue and So Saffron paper. I CASEd a stamping friend's idea (thanks, Jean!) of tearing around the flower after wetting the paper.

Baby!


I was making cards with some friends today and made one for a young friend who just had her first baby! I used SU! Greetings Galore and SU! Fresh Fillers stamps. There's ribbon on there- pink paper ribbon and gauzy baby ribbon - and two silver eyelets. I used So Saffron paper and ink and there's some Versamark fresh fillers in there too.

Another card for the Show


This one uses two step stamping and Versamark. I watercoloured the main images and used a teeny bit of a gel pen touch for the middles of the flowers.
