On A Whim Emoji Note Cards

I spent this past weekend LOVING the American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim paper pad (6 x 6, 36 sheets). The only “bad” thing – there are 36 unique papers – no repeats. I am officially OUT of emoji paper!

Kitchen update:  The backsplash hit a SNAFU 2 weeks ago. The glass tile I fell in love with (YES, a splurge…it is a small kitchen) is persnickety to install. We had to order a few more boxes of glass tile after the first attempt to install did not go well (no stamps for me for a while!). Yesterday, round 2 of installation began, with a different contractor. MY FINGERS ARE CROSSED. On the bright side, I have a whole box of individual 1 x 1 inch glass tiles to use for some project (the top of a coffee table, maybe?).

Supplies: Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Orchid Opulence (retired), Wisteria Wonder, ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white, organdy ribbon – Offray.

Almost Madras Square Birthday Card

My father turned 83 this week! This is one of the cards I made for him. The On A Whim paper reminded me of a madras sport shirt (he loves colorful plaid shirts in the summer). He didn’t notice – he was blinded by the batch of low fat brownie bites I made for him.  😉

Supplies: Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, ink – VersaMark, die – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver.
