The House That Stamps Built: Presentation of The Week

Hi Donna here with my week to share a project for The House That Stamps Built.
 
I am sharing a quick and easy project  for you as September always
seems to be a busy time.  For my card you need
 an A2 envelope, brown cardstock -5 1/4 by 2 1/2 by 3" and 2 1/2 by 4",
 ivory cardstock 2 1/2 by 3 3/4"
 
Fold and scor your envelope in half, envelope opening to the inside. Stamp the
front of the envelope with Repeat Impressions 3404-C Random Dots, stamp
ivory cardstock with 9303-P, Thanks a latte' flowered cup and
sponge the edges with the same ink.  Open your envelope and
stamps Thanks a latte from the same stamp set.  I then used a coffee
bean stencil from my stash.  Attach your ribbon to the back
of your cardstock and on top of your folded envelope
after attaching your envelope with adhesive of choice.
Then attach top two layers and embellish.  This card is
idea to tuck in a Starbucks gift card and/or a handwritten
note.



 
Thanks for stopping by today.

Shower Invitation


My great niece is expecting in November , she likes zebras,
green and yellow.  Of course pink had to be added in
also since she is expecting a girl! 
 
Two of my nieces(aunt and grandma to be) and
sister-in-law (great grandma to be) helped make the
invitations and did a great job with the stamping. I
will be a great great aunt for the first time!

I chose the top row, dimension-light house-sponging.  If you are a regular
follower you know nautical, bears and butterflies all make regular appearance
on my blog so it was a given that I would choose the lighthouse.  This one
3003-K, Cape Hatteras Light is a new one on my stash (thanks Wendy) after
stamping it, I also embossed it and cut is out with my Scan and Cut to layer for
 added  dimension, also added numerous die cut layers, sponged clouds,
 added a 6104-J, Birthday Vertical and a cute little fish for additional dimension.
This lighthouse will be seeing a lot of ink!
Hope you will link up this week for a chance to win the monthly drawing for a
$25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate.  Cards made with

Just finished the last of my co-workers  cards for  the year,
 I'm itching to work on Christmas cards so am trying to get other

papers from KI and 5th & Frolic.  Flowers are Altenew.  Die cuts
Precision for Life, Sizziz and Tim Holtz.  Distress Oxides: Wild
Honey, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint and Distress ink tea dye. I was
quite happy with how this turned out and am looking forward to
sharing the other cards I made this week.   Have a wonderful
weekend!
