Sh*t Could Be Worse Card

This Voices in my Head stamp set from Ellen Hutson arrived Monday at lunchtime…I had this card made before I went to bed.

I stamped/embossed/colored the head on white cardstock, and fussy cut it out. It had to go on the raindrop background paper. (Raise your hand if you can hear Igor from “Young Frankenstein” say, “Could be worse…could be raining!”)

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, inks – Copic E21, E23, VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.

Treat Yourself Note Card

How’s everyone doing?

I’ve been a little under the weather, with a smattering of “other things to do” going on.

Today’s note card was really quick and easy. Wouldn’t it be cute to hold a gift card from the local ice cream shop as an end of year gift for a student or favorite teacher?

I made the ice cream chocolate – because that is my favorite.  😉

Supplies:  Stamps – Lawn Fawn, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise (retired), inks – Copic B02, C5, E23, VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG Wink of Stella clear, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.

Feminine Graduation Card

A daughter of a dear friend just graduated from college. School colors are deep green and gray. I had to make it a tiny bit feminine by ink blending a floral background (I am hoping it gives the impression of vintage lace – I may be reaching a bit far with that hope!).

Supplies:  Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Handsome Hunter (retired – WAY back!), Gold Mirror, inks – Lawn Fawn Manatee, VersaMark, dies – Taylored Expressions, stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Gold Glory.
