Projects # 39, 40, 41, 42

Happy Friday!

Time for a brand new blog post.  I must admit, the more I stamp the easier it gets.  Ideas flow more easily.  I guess those gears are finally becoming well oiled. :)

Summer break has officially begun in our home.  That means more video games, movies, swimming, ice cream, reading and all of the other fun summer activities we can indulge in. Maybe we will even be able to squeeze in a little crafting time.

Project #39: Thank-You
I created three of these simple cards to for my son's teacher.  When I give cards to individuals I don't know very well I tend to keep them very simple.

Supplies:  Stamps (Papertrey Ink-Mega Mixed Messages and Mat Stack #2), card stock, dies (Spellbinders and Papertrey Ink), ribbon, ink, embossing powder, pop-dots and Dew Drops.

Project #40: End of School Year
Every year, if my son does well at school, we give him a end of year treat.  Usually books and games....sometimes LEGOS.  Of course I always include a handmade card just for him.

Supplies:  Stamps (Papertrey Ink-Way to go Kiddo), card stock, pattern paper (We R Memory Keepers), ink and buttons. 

Project #41:  Thank-You 
The last two thank-you cards are for my son's martial arts instructors.  One male and one female.  Again, I like to keep it simple, especially with masculine cards.

Supplies:  Stamps (Papertrey Ink:Mat Stack #4 and Mega Mixed Messages), die (Papertrey Ink), circle punches, cards stock, pattern paper (DCWV), ribbon, metal rim tag, ink and ribbon. 

Project #42: Thank You
For my final card I need to use a background stamp.  This stamp was not on my original list of stamps for this week and is actually wood mounted.  I saw in similar card in the latest issue of Stampers Sample.  I love how it turn out.

 Supplies:  Stamps (Stamps Happen and Magnetic Poetry-Word Stamp Kit), Gelatos, Distressed Stain (white), card stock, die (Spellbinders), washi tape, ink, black pen and pearls.

This week I managed to create six cards.  However, you may noticed that my Father's Day cards are missing. I am hoping to find a few minutes this weekend to get those created.  Giving me plenty of time to drop them in the mail.

I would love to see what you have been up to this week.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I like all of your cards. The background thank you card is my favorite.

    Have a Great Summer and hope you do find some crafting time. I hope to be back stamping in a couple of weeks.
