So, I am unmounting my SU sets and other wood mounted stamps-- like many others. The ones that I have that are only rubber, I have purchased EZmount for. But the ones that are already on rubber and foam, seems crazy to take off of foam to put back on. So, I tried Press and Seal, you know the stuff for food, that is a little sticky. So far it has worked. I don't know if it will be a long term solution, but figured I'd share. Thanks for checking in.

This is a gift set for my SIL whose birthday is this month. She just got her first FT job, you know the career kind. She's a librarian. She really wanted to be a youth librarian, which is for teen aged kids, and she got the job. She just loves it. I figured she could keep these on her desk for when she needs to write a note to someone. I made 2 of each color and a little box to keep them in. Hope she likes them. I didn't have ribbon to match the coral colored one, so I colored some clear baubles, from Michaels.
Another card using a little birdie told me... set from SU! The card base came from DCWV pack, the DP is from the Nana, baby girl 12x12 pack. Ribbon is Wrights, I bought 100yd of it and the pin is a corsage pin that I just glued the little dragonfly to the end to cover the sharp point. They are by Fibrecraft, and I think I got them at WalMart. Thanks for looking.
So the other day I showed you my little birdie, and told you about my new niece that is going to be born in May. Well I wanted some girlie thank yous. My sister can have distinctive tastes though so I thought I'd make some classy thank yous and keep the girl theme. I figured anything through the cuttlebug is classy. I love, love, love my textile folder, and noticed it is getting worn, I need to get a new one for back up. Don't want to risk it ya know. Any way this is actually pink PAPER, I had to put it 2 or 3 sheets in at a time to avoid tearing it, but I printed the thank you on the printer, 4 to a page, then cut them and embossed them. The flower is from a bucket of bridal flowers, on sale 25% off at Michaels this week, and the bling in the middle is from a cell phone sticker. I really like the way they came out and I found a Victoria Secret box that I altered for deliver them in. So everything is pinky, pinky. I hope my sister likes them, but at least she'll have something ready to go.
Ok, that is lame, I know it. I got a little Birdie told me from my last Su order because I loved how easy it was to paper piece him. Now that I look at him, I need to add a grounding line to him. But, this DP is on Sale at Joann right now, it is DCWV Nana pack. It's 12x12 and it's baby girl. I bought it to do a scrapbook for my sister who is having a girl- her 4th child, but first girl and the first girl in 30 years on her husbands side of the family. Can you say spoiled a little??? Any way, I went through it and there were so many of the 48 pages that I took for spring cards, there were cherry pages, strawberries, flourishes, etc. It was a good 9.99. The DP is sparkly and has glitter in it. Thanks for looking and have a great Monday.

Perfect match for the pocketbook. LOL! I bought the Aquamist cardstock and ink, as well as everyday blessings, which I love, love, love, love. OK, I love it. I'm whipping through the cardstock and will need to order more. I've found so many DP that can go with it. YIPPEE, as you know I'm trying to use up a lot of what I have. Here are a couple of cards I put together. The dp is from my minds eye.
I also made one where I put glitter on the cross. And stamped one of the awesome sentiments on the front of the card, in aquamist pallett. I love the look of tone on tone, and with these beautiful sayings and font, I think it looks really classy.
I had been sick, but not for a month. Hanging my head in shame, I am back with some posts. I actually have been busy stamping, so but wasn't good taking photos and actually SENT a bunch of cards out. Here is a post of some Easter Cards. The images are Amuse and I flocked the bunny. I had to bling the cute little nose. I'm trying to put patterns together, because I never do and am not good at it, but these two were on the reverse side of each other in a K&Company pack. Not sure that I like it, but figured, it wasn't my fault if they didn't go together....
The cardstock is SU Pretty in Pink, stamped in brilliance Graphite Black, colored with Copics, flocked with white Stampendous Flock. The stars from MFT icing on the cake is stamped in Versamark on the righthand side. I made my own notebook page. Thanks for looking.
