Wilderness Awaits Father’s Day

At May’s library class, we made two quick and easy cards.  The first was a Mother’s Day card.  You can see it here.

Our second card was one suitable for Father’s Day, using The Wilderness Awaits stamp set.  Today is the last day to order this set, so if you like it, order it now, before it’s gone forever!

Stamps:  The Wilderness Awaits, Greatest Greetings, Hardwood

Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla

Ink:  Soft Suede, Early Espresso

Tomorrow we’ll have a new catalog, and all new products!  I hope you’ll come back to see some new projects!

Until then……stay inky, my friends!


Veterans Thank You

My husband spent 28 years in the Army, and we live near Fort Knox, Kentucky.  A lot of my stamping friends have connections to the military so we try to support the military by making cards.  We give thank you cards to Veterans at various events and locations, and we also provide cards to units overseas for them to send home to their friends and families.

At my last party, almost everyone who attended was either a soldier or married to an active duty or retired soldier.  We decided to do not only a Make-n-Take, but also a Make-n-Leave!

We made a cute little Make-n-Take using the Reverse Words stamp set that was available during Sale-a-ration.  You can see that card here.

This card was the Make-n-Leave.  Each stamper at the party made one of these for a Veteran.  My father (who is a veteran of WWII) and my husband gave these out at a local Veterans Breakfast last month.

Thanks for spending a few minutes here today.  If you see a Veteran, thank them for their service.  It really does mean a lot to them.


The Wilderness Awaits

Last year, when I went to the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City, UT, I attended classes presented by a group of demonstrators called Stamp Across America.  It was a lot of fun!  They had two classes that used the same stamp sets, so if you attended both, you had two different samples for the same set.

One of the sets used was The Wilderness Awaits, and these were the two cards we created.  I used these cards for one of my Cards and More classes.  We made three of these in the class.


In addition to making nine cards in the class (three each of three designs), we made a bonus project.  This card was our bonus project.  We used the painters tape technique to make the background.


I can’t take credit for the design of either of these cards, but they were a hit in my class.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
