An Anniversary and a Birthday

I have two cards for you today.  The first one I made a while back and decided to give to my parents for their anniversary.  The brown cardstock is from our wedding photo display, the green from Michael's, the ribbon from my mom, and the rosette from Michael's.  The only thing that didn't turn out so well was the silver ink (which I chucked out after that card since it never worked ANY time I used it).

This card was for my cousin's birthday.  The brown cardstock is also from our wedding photo display, and all other paper is courtesy Stampin' Up.  Same, with all ink, punches, and the pearls.  I was browsing on Pinterest last night and found some really creative other uses for the owl punch so I'm going to have fun experimenting with that.  Hope you have a good weekend!  <3 JEM

October Stamp Club

Happy weekend, y'all!  Thought I would share the cards we made at Stamp Club this week.  The theme was Christmas, and fortunately it was snowing so it really helped me get in the mood for Christmas :)  This first card has a wonderful technique I learned called Triple Time Stamping (except this one is only double ;)).  It's really fast and easy and the cool thing about it is that it doesn't matter if your stamp job isn't perfect because the layering disguises it.

This second card has a more vintage feel to it.  It uses the Big Shot to get the embossed paper.  I ordered a couple Christmas themed items for an order I have coming up and I can't wait to receive them!  This afternoon I'll be working on another order I have, after hopefully successfully donating blood.  My iron and blood pressure are generally low so we'll see if I've guzzled all this water for nothing :)  What are your plans for the weekend?  <3 JEM

Fall Order

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  Hope you are enjoying the long weekend - I certainly am!  These cards were from my most recent order, and I received a wonderful compliment about them: It will be really really hard to give these away.  Made my day!  All products used are Stampin' Up except where mentioned (the card body..? is courtesy Michael's.

The "thinking of YOU" stamp is not Stampin' Up - can't remember the company.

I got the button on this one from a knitting shop in Nanaimo.

The button on this card is also from the knitting shop in Nanaimo.  The gold ribbon was from a gift I received, and the Thank You stamp is from the same set as the thinking of YOU stamp.  Which one is your favorite??  <3 JEM
