Project 41 of 365: All a Flutter Birthday June 29, 2010

Have any of you guys ever seen stamp set and thought  “I just have  to have that,” then ordered it right away, waited impatiently for many days for it to arrive, and then you finally get it and  you leave it sit for a month (or often times much longer) without ever using it? This is something I have done far more times than I would like to admit.  The main stamp used in this card is a perfect example of this.

As soon as I saw the All a Flutter a la carte stamp in the back of the Summer Mini Catalog I just HAD to have it.  I had so many ideas in my head about how I was going to use it.  The whole 1 1/2 weeks I spent waiting for it to arrive seemed like torture.  Well I got that stamp over a month ago, and have I posted a single project using it?  Nope….today is the first time I touched that stamp, even though it seemed so hard to wait for it to arrive.  lol!

Luckily, I’m really loving this first card I finally made with it.  In case you are wondering….the butterflies are stamped in versamark onto cardstock vellum, heat embossed with black embossing powder, and then colored with markers, and popped up with dimensionals.  It’s just such a happy card 🙂  I am  so glad I finally put this stamp to use, and I hope to use it much more often in the future.

Project 37 of 365: Friends Never Fade Sneak Peak June 25, 2010

So yesterday I finally got the remainder of my Sneak Peak order, and I just had to break out this cute stamp set “Friends Never Fade.” I had already seen many cards made with this set, and knew that I also wanted to use the new Pear Pizzazz cardstock as well as the new Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  In the end I accidently cased a card I had seen on SplitCoast Stampers.  I am laughing at myself a bit on this one.  Often times I copy other people on purpose, but this time I must have just had this other card stuck in my mind.  The card I am talking about is by Jeannie Maier, and mine is slightly different, but close enough to being the same that I think I should give her credit 🙂

And check out the patterned paper on this one…..Isn’t it so cute?  It is another sneak peak from the new catalog and it’s called Greenhouse Gala.
