Oh I had to show you another cute one!

This What's Moo? card I did for a swap a while ago and came across it today. I thought that you might like it, it is using the Uptown Girl paper from the wing it collection from TAC. The stamp is What's Moo. I thought it was bright and cheery, it is a dismal day here in Maryland. The sun is supposed to come out, but with that comes the heat!

I am still working on stamp camp details and plan on having a blog candy with the supplies for some special blogger! Stay tuned!

A Quick Hello

I have been busy here with getting the kids ready for school. It starts on Monday! We did a family week doing fun stuff around the DC area. Kings Dominion and Hershey Park were the highlights. I am trying to get my next stamp camp organized!

This card was a quickie with Hoppy Frogs Stamp Set, scraps that I had from the zebra envelopes! The circles are made with the 1/2" and 3/4" circle punches. The paper is MM Blue 2, Just like Dad (wing it collection), White and Navy. I made it for my brother's birthday and it has grow on me, I first thought that it was ok, but now really like it. To my surprise it is the cover card of the week for one of my TAC yahoo groups.

Stay tuned for the September stamp camp dates, we will be making 14 cards!!! The best thing is that they will be great for guys as well as girls. The paper that will be highlighted with the stamp camp is Amelia.

Till then have a specTACular Day!

Uptown Girl 3x3" Cards and Envelopes

I had a few minutes last night to go stamp and made these fun cards. The cards are 3x3", I cut them from a 12 x 12" piece of black cardstock. (you get 8 of these cards from one 12 x 12" sheet.) I used scraps of the uptown girl paper for the card. The envelopes were made by using 5x5" sheets of uptown girl paper and using the template in the previous post.

Lay the 4 sheets of 5x5" paper on top of each other and you can cut the notches for the folding for all 4 of them at one time. I use a straight edge and the tip of a bone folder to score the sides scoring from one notch to the next all around making a scored "square" and fold in the sides first then the bottom, securing with a little monoadhesive tape. The final step is to fold the top down. Let me know if you want me to make a tutorial for this.

Let me know what you think!

Wild For You and 3 x 3 envelope template

The UPS man came early today! I just got Wild For You and have had a little time to play with it. The first card (the black and white is origanal) the small 3 x 3" cards are totally CASE'd from www.splitcoaststampers.com. I don't know who did them but they had put googlie eyes on them, I am out of googlie eyes. Stamp sets used on card one Wild for you and Background Squiggles.

Stamps used on card 2: Wild for you and Tag tidbits.
I did design a template to make an envelope for the very popular 3 x 3" cards. I talked to a gentleman at the envelope store here in town, which is closing for good on 7/18, and he said that they don't make envelopes that size. Well we can make our own out of paper! Can you imagine the cute envelopes you can make with the wing it and designer papers!!
