Another little project

I thought I'd share with you the other make-n-take project I made at the crop last weekend. It is a little 3x3 card that can be used as a gift enclosure. Of the many things that the clear My Acrylix stamps can help you accomplish the "clearest" is shown in this one: lining up your images to place it exactly where you want and to do multiple stamping. The "thanks" is stamped on a twill ribbon so you can place it exactly on the ribbon and not miss by going off the edge. The flower is actually done with 3 stamps! One is the solid inside done in the beautiful pinky-orange "Sorbet" color, the outline and the center are then done in Chocolate. This little card says a lot in a little space!
Stamp sets: Aspiration (flower), For Every Occasion ("thanks")
Paper: Unforgettable
Other materials: Chocolate and Colonial White cardstock, Twill ribbon, stylus for dry embossing, sanding block, Sorbet and Chocolate inks

It's been 2 months!

Wow! A lot of activity has been going on in my life and just no time to update this bloggy thing! Well, I just got back from my 1st ever multi-day crop as a vendor (or as anything, for that matter). What an experience! It was fun and exhausting at the same time! Here's a couple of pictures of my display area:
My friend, Becky, and I shared the experience and we did a make-n-take each day. We were honored to have received some very positive feedback from the ladies who attended!

Here's a picture of my 1st make-n-take and the matching 2nd page:

Materials used (all CTMH)
Stamp sets - Daydream and Footprints, Homestead alphabet
