Just a quick post to show you what I created last weekend. I made these treat "purses" and place cards for 3 friends that came over for lunch today. Both projects were a lot of fun to make. I tailored the papers and colors I used, to fit the style of each friend. And...more importantly...my friends really liked them :)
I used SU's Top Note die for the body of the purses, and a couple of Spell binders dies for the flap of the purses. MFT's button dies were used for the buttons (SO much fun to make), then I added some Glossy Accents to give the buttons some shine. A little ribbon for a handle, then I filled a little bag with trail mix to go inside each purse.
For the place cards, I used a Spellbinders die and, while the CS was still in the die I embossed the edges. I used my brand new SU set Four Frames on these place cards. These little frames were the perfect size for my place cards. And I love the variety of frame styles in this set.
I also made two cards for my father-in-law. One for Father's Day and one for his birthday. He will turn 93 years old next week! He is such a blessing in my life. I couldn't have asked for a better FIL!
Both cards are made with all SU products. I borrowed this tie stamp set from my friend Kris, when she was here last Saturday. I have to say...I hadn't paid much attention to this set when I saw it in the catalog. But, I love it! I was so much fun to create with :)
I found a tutorial online for the shirt card. The shirt starts out with a 4" x 6" piece of dsp, and it's all folding from there...no cutting. I love that little shirt!
Well...two of my stamping friends are coming over tomorrow to stamp with me. I can hardly wait! It's so much fun stamping with friends. In fact, we did this last Saturday, too! I'm thinking that this could become a habit...lol.
Thanks for stopping in!
