The Last of the Mini Scrapbook Papers converted to Cards!

Hello Everyone!

This is the last of the Mini Scrapbook papers I used up to make a bunch of Cards!

I think these are my favorite color combos!

Cards #1 and #2

100_6626

Actually there are 4 of these cards!

Here is the Card and the inside of the other Card!

100_6627

I went retired butterfly stamps and punch for these cards!

Card #3

100_6628

It is a mix of the leftover DSP!

Here is the stamped inside of the card!

100_6629

 

Card #4

100_6630

There were 2 of these Cards to make! I do like the background on the DSP!

Here is how the inside is stamped.

100_6631

 

Card #5

100_6632

A striped background! Decided to stay with the flowers here from

First Frost stamp set!

Same inside on this Card as Card #4

100_6633

Kept it simple!

Card #5

100_6634

Again, Left over pieces from cutting down DSP!

Again the inside is the same!

100_6635

I do hope you enjoyed these Cards…If you come upon some old packages,

like I did…cut the DSP down and match up to your cardstock on hand…remember,

you can always use contrasting colors to make the Cards too!

Use it up, make some cards, write them out, mail them, make someone Happy!

People always want to know how to do something special for someone else.

How about…taking some time to write a note or remember their Birthday,

Anniversary, Thinking of You, Get Well…etc.,. In today’s world,

that card could mean the world to someone, instead of a quick text.

Never forget the power of a written word to someone!

If you took the time to sit and write…how much more appreciated

it would be to receive a Card!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and the Power of a Pen to you ALL!

October’s Card Class…A Thanksgiving Card!

Hello All!

For the October Card Class, we made a

Thanksgiving Card!

I know it is a month early but, we are going

to make a Christmas Card for the November Class

and a Christmas Card for the December Class!

You can never, not, have enough Christmas Cards for mailing!

 

Here is October’s Card!

100_6611

I CASEd the idea from fellow Stampin’Up! Demonstrator, Rosanne Mulhern!

CASECopy And Share Everything!

I made a few changes from Rosanne’s Card to make it mine!

I used less ‘sprigs’, I didn’t use DSP, A different Stamp Set(s),

different colored leaves, and I used the Braided Linen Trim,

instead of a many looped Linen Thread bow.

Overall, the layout is the same!

Here is Rosanne’s Card!
