My new stamp set arrived on Saturday and I couldn’t want to try them. It was fun to have new stamps to color. Yes, I’m a big dork, I really enjoy coloring. I tried several each of the stamps and have decided that the one below is my favorite:
This is another fun image. Playing around with the colors of the water was fun. Just ignore that the corners on these cards are crooked.
I have discovered that I don’t have a lot of blues to work with. I have ooddles and ooddles of papers, mostly in pinks and beige. This does NOT mean I need to rush out and get more papers. When I mentioned the lack of blue paper to the Mr. he sighed and asked, “Does that mean we have to go back to Hobby Lobby?” No, not at all. I will just have to be creative with what I have.
A couple of my blog friends also had posts about cards this week. I sent Sheri from My Leftover Life some cards and she did a blog post about it. That made my day. She is going to start making cards and I can’t wait to see how they turn out.
The Shady Lady and her daughter Princess at Unschooling Royalty are making Artist Trading cards. They are little 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ cards that people can trade. Think fancy baseball cards. My friend Teresa gave me a book about making these types of cards. I didn’t have anyone to trade them with. Ms. Shady and her daughter are going to trade with me.
My upcoming week will be making Trading cards. I also plan on making a card for my dad using a cool image from The Graphics Fairy. I found a fun article about putting LED lights in an empty egg for Easter. My dad is a HUGE Easter Egg fan and I think he would enjoy trying that. I wanted to send him a card as well. He used to be a meat cutter and I have an image of how to cut up a cow. I think dad will get a chuckle out of that.
I hope you all had a great week. I look forward to seeing my fellow Project 2011 gals progress.
For those of you who saw the beer post on Wordless Wednesday, go check out the comments. Al Fleckenstein stopped by and answered my questions about the beer ad. Which turns out was a label. It was kind of him to stop by and do that. Now I understand what a picnic beer is. Thank you, Audrey.
