SSINK - Birthday Card

This birthday card was really fun....and easy..... to make!  I wanted to make it for a July birthday, so I chose red, white and blue with a splash of yellow.

I started with a basic Night of Navy cardbase, then added a Real Red layer with Whisper White on top of that.  You can't imagine how hard it was for me to place that layer at an angle!  But by placing it that way it created more room for the two balloons and made it a little more fun.

The Real Red words and balloons are from the new stamp set "Happy Birthday Gorgeous", and the big Night of Navy Happy Birthday is made using the new Happy Birthday Thinlit.

I always like to make special tags to tie onto the bags of my customer orders.  Usually I use pieces of projects left over from the most recent stamp class.

This month we made this sweet card using the Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats Framelits.

I had pieces left over, so I made these fun tags to go on the bags I will deliver tomorrow.  Hope they like them!

Ribbon of Courage - SSINK Friday Favorite

The new catalog has many wonderful new stamp sets that I love.  But this one really speaks to me.  Unfortunately, I have too many friends who have had, or who now have breast cancer.  This ribbon is a beautiful reminder that...with faith, all things are possible.

The cardbase and shadow ribbon are Pink Pirouette.  The ribbon is stamped with Memento Black on Whisper White and colored with a variety of markers.  It's popped up on a Whisper White strip layered with Basic Black.

Simple, but powerful.

Happy Anniversary to us!

Our 34th wedding anniversary was earlier this month - and we haven't changed a bit!  LOL!

If you know us, you'll know that we aren't fancy people, have everything we need and enjoy the simple things in life.  So I wrapped Randy's present up in a paper bag with twine for ribbon and made a label using Jars of Love.  Perfect.

Embossing Paste

OK...this looks like fun!  I will admit, when I first saw this in the catalog I wasn't too excited.  But when I started seeing cards made with this embossing paste, then watched a few videos, I decided I'll have to get some.

Watch this video and see what you think!
