Running a bit behind tonight with my posting - I've been busy prepping for the Tauranga Extravaganza this weekend that I'm teaching at.
This is the swap I did for our camp the other week. I wanting something other than a card and not with chocolate! - I know - what's wrong with me. So I decided to make a cover for the small packets of tissues you get. I always have a pack of these in my handbag.
I made an array of colour combinations using the Epic Day This and That DSP.
Well we've certainly had all seasons in a day here in Auckland. This morning on my way to work it showed that is was 4 degreesC which is really cold for this time of year. Then we had a huge downpour and then by this afternoon the sun had come out and it was hot - this is autumn weather.
Now on with my card. I had hoped to use this as my swap for our team stamp camp but my brayering wasn't that hot - something I need to practice. Anyway this piece turned out OK and made it onto the card!
There are so many 'other' uses for the Scallop Tag Topper punch and I'm sure you'll see more projects coming up soon.
At Stamp Camp we used the Note Card and Envelope (see page 162 of Annual Catalogue) so I thought I'd create something with them myself. It's slightly smaller than a normal sized card but great for a quick 'thank you' card.
I embossed a piece of Whisper White then adhered some Sweet Sorbet DSP to the bottom, adhered some Postage Punch squares, stamped and punched flowers from the Petite Petals set and I was done. Finished off with a bit of 'Bling' and a sentiment - how good is that.
I then decided my card was lonely and needed something else - chocolate I hear you say! This is a cool little project I saw on Dawn Griffith's blog. I altered my DSP to measure 6 x 6 (means you can get 4 out of a sheet of DSP). I've used a Whittaker's Sante Bar.
