Hi all! Happy Wednesday! It's been a good day over here! Started my day off at Stay and Play this am as I do most Wednesdays! The kids love having so many great toys and friends to play with! And I enjoy chatting with other mom's and having free Starbucks coffee (my church so rocks!) We also volunteered with cleanup, I say we since my kids help out and LOVE to volunteer! Ariel always asks me "Do we get to volunteer today?" Where else can such a young child volunteer so easily? Still no snow here! It has snowed several times since last night but not the kind of snow that sticks. It's so odd to have had such a warm fall and still no snow middle of November already! Although it has gotten colder outside which should lead to snow!
Today I have a card set I made with a matching purse! The gift season is coming and I am trying to be prepared! I think I will be making A LOT of card sets this holiday season! This is also for the current contest at Hero Arts which includes handmade gifts! The cards and purse:
A close up on one of the cards:
I stamped the HA flourish stamp in Tumbled glass on the cream note card. I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper, at Scrapfest in the HA class that I took they used watercolor paper when they did this technique and it works so much better than regular cardstock that I had to buy some watercolor! I embossed the flowers in white, than sponged tumbled glass and broken china distress ink on them and sprayed with a lot of water mixed with perfect pearls and let them dry! I made the bottom panel with brown cardstock and border punched it! A close up of the purse with the cards inside:
I made the purse out of cream cardstock and after I scored it where it would be folder I realized that the flourish stamp fits perfectly in the back and front panels! Super easy when I stamped it!
So what do you think? Do you find yourself making card sets as gifts too, or what do you make?
