Not So Short Notes - Stair-Step Card

Finally, another post! I haven't been in my stamping room for what seems a long time! This card was almost completed a couple weeks ago, and I finished it up last night. Not sure when I'll get back in my room again, either. Oh well - that's life! And it's summer:)

Another stair-step card. For this card, I used the Stampin' Up! set called "Not So Short Notes." I used two of the stamps - the image on the front and the sentiment/image on the inside. There are two more stamps, but I'm not planning on using them at this time. One is an image very similar to the mailboxes, but it's three bird houses. The other is a very long and thin angel.

The sentiment was cut with a die. To make it fit, I cut the "BIRTHDAY" into two pieces. The little birdie on the bottom of the front is from the sentiment stamp. Not my favorite card, but after having it sit around almost finished for quite a while, it's good to have it in the "done" box!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Evergreen Tree - Times Four

It may not look like it on my blog today - but Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there. And to everyone who has ever had a mother:)

I have four cards for you today, all using the same two-step tree stamps. They are from a new-to-me stamp set by Recollections/Michael's. It's hard to tell, but three of these are stamped in green with white stamped over them. The sentiments are all from the same set. I added trunks on all of them, and a little shadow on most with either light blue or gray.
The embossing on this matting layer was done with a Sizzix folder. The stitched circle die-cut is left over from my card from a couple days ago. It's mounted on Dimensionals.
 The panel is mounted on Dimensionals.
For this one, I stamped with green and then stamped again with the second stamp in a darker green. I added Stickles dots, also.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Penny Black Sticker #4

The last of the four large stickers from a Penny Black sheet. I mounted the sticker on cardstock and trimmed around the edge. I mounted that panel on Dimensionals and added it to colored cardstock. The sentiment is from a new-to-me stamp set from Recollections.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Penny Black Sticker #3

Another Penny Black sticker from the same sheet as a few days ago. I matted with two colors of cardstock and mounted on Dimensionals. I added some patterned paper and rick rack. The sentiment is a sticker, also. I added a couple black gems, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Petal Prints #2

The other card I made using the Stampin' Up! set called "Petal Prints." I stamped the flower and the leaves using two of the stamps in the set. I "sloppy" colored them with Copics. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Normally I like two-step stamping, but I wasn't particularly fond of the way the outline stamp matched up with the solid stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
