Football Invitations

There are no stamps involved here, but the white gel pen and large oval punch sure were - they make perfect little footballs!

These were the invitations to my son's birthday party - they were cute and not too labor intensive (unlike my daughter's invitations, which took forever and a long day to complete!)

CS: WWhite, Garden Green, Close to Cocoa

SAB 2007, We Hardly Knew Ye

Of course, now that Sell-a-Bration is over, and these stamps sets won't be available ever again, I have some time to play with them. ::sigh::

This SAB stamp set is Happy Harmony -so pretty, and the color scheme of this set was inspired by SCS stamper tashers. I used the Thumping technique with these flowers and the background stamp, which worked really well with these colors and stamps.

Thumping is when you ink up a stamp in a light color, and take a darker colored marker and "thump" color on the rubber image before you stamp on your cardstock. I had fun making these cards, and I'm forcing myself to not hoard them. I have already used two!

Stamp Sets: Happy Harmony (SAB 2007 set - retired), Print Pattern
CS: WWhite, Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Choc Chip, Bashful Blue, Markers: Brilliant Blue, Choc. Chip, Craft: Brilliant Blue
Other: SU grosgrain ribbon (that matches ballet & brilliant blues), bashful brads, non-SU gingham ribbon, ticket corner punch

Happy One Sheet Wonder

This entire card was completely CASED from Tah Dah! on SCS. I immediately adored it: happy and bright, but simple.

I did make the envelopes all on my own (ha!); love using the 1 1/4" circle punch to customize your envelopes (only works well with the flat-flap envelopes, not the cheapy v-point ones I used to get from Wally World).

I made a ton of these in pretty short order. Sending to my downline and some special friends this week.

Stamp Sets: Happy Everything, Seeing Spots, Spot On Jumbo Wheel
CS: WWhite, Only Orange
Ink: Lovely Lilac, Pink Passion, Yoyo Yellow (in uninked Jumbo cartridge for wheel), Green Galore, Only Orange
Other: Stampamajig (love that thing for perfect word placement!)


Both Way Thanks

Inspired by PenelopePitstop on SCS. Needed some quick thank you notes and these fit the bill. Her cards were more like the center card, I just changed up the layout/matting is all. We needed to thank Kent's parents for child care this weekend, and he picked the rose card. I used the black Stampin' Write marker to ink the flowers (no chance for stray ink when you stamp!)

Stamp Sets: Both Way Blossoms (Hostess Set), All Year Cheer I (sentiment), All Natural (square)
CS: Regal Rose, So Saffron, WWhite, BBlack
Ink: Regal Rose, So Saffron, Basic Black
Other: Ticket Corner Punch
