ON ANOTHER NOTE:

I am building up my stash,

I sent many cards out to friends and family…Yes, I do use my cards!

I do make 2 at a time, so when the stash gets too full,

then they get packaged and sold, or given away to my Sisters!

I just did a give away, to lower the stash, I am building it up again!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Fussy Love to you ALL!

Get Well Wishes in a Fancy Fold Card!

Hi All!

Another play day in the Craft Room!

I decided to try another kind of fancy fold card!

Here it what I made!

100_6815

I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the different items here, on the stamp!

after coloring, you ‘huff’ on the stamp (it re-dampens the ink) and the stamp!

I had one light spot, I am going to re-color it in with a Stampin’ Write Marker!

I tried the Blender Pen, I see it didn’t work that well!

It’s funny how the camera picks up what your eyes don’t see!

Here’s what the card looks like, standing up.

100_6816

This will be going to my SIL!
