Thanksgiving Place Card

To find the QuicKutz 4x4 Turkey dies, check this web address:
I use the cuttlebug to cut the turkey. Type the words on the Microsoft Word and print it off. Use the 1 1/2 circle punch in the middle of the words. Place the word circle on top of the Turkey body. Then assemble the turkey together. Place the Turkey on the folded stand cardstock.

Feel His Hands

I wanted to make a simple sympathy card. I looked for a stamp that has God's hands holding a heart but I did not have one. There was one in the Microsoft Word. Go to "Insert" > picture > Clip Art >(look at the bottom - Clip Organizer > Web Collections > Microsoft Office Online > People. If you want to put the picture behind the text, go to "Tools" > customize > put a check mark on the 'picture' > picture box will pop up. See the square box with a dog - click it. You will see a list of multiple choice. Have fun playing around with the Picture tool to make the picture darker or lighter.

Cardstock: Stampin' Up - Barely Banana
Punch: Martha Stewart Doily Lace
Accessories: Gold metal self-adhesive

Howl Thank You

Here is the card that I wanted to make something humor.

Paper: white cardstock

Markers: Stampin' Up - Mint Melody, Mellow Moss, Creamy Carmel, Close to Cocoa, Pale Plum and Apricot Appeal

Ink pad: Paintbox ink

Accessories: Firm brayer, post-it for masking, Rope repositionable alphabitties, Close to My Heart - Acrylix clear stamp "Atomic Caps"

Stamps: Desert by Taylored Artwork, Wolf by Rubber Stampede

Stamp both with black ink on each post-it and cut them out. Stamp the Wolf with black ink on the white cardstock first. Use the Wolf cut out post-it on top of the stamped Wolf. Stamp the desert with black ink on top of the masking wolf. Put the desert cut out post-it over the stamped desert on the cardstock. You can snap off at the bottom of the Paintbox ink pad and change around the color pad before using the firm brayer and roll over the Paintbox ink pad. Then roll over on the top of the maskings back and forth. Repeat it till you get the color right. The fun part is peeling off the maskings. Color with markers. Stamp the clear alphabets with black ink - THANK YOU. Use the rope respostionable alphabitties - 0 on the last four. Inside the card - "Howl I ever repay you?"

Thanks a Bunch!

I used three different colors of Stampin' Up cardstocks. Colored with Stampin' Up markers on the picture stamp. Embellished with pink flowers and crystal self-adhesive gems. Crystal Sticklers glitter glue around the frame.

Warms my Heart

The front paper I purchased it from Archiver's so I decided to do something with it. The paper felt like it was glossy because I had trouble using Staz-On Jet Black ink with the embossing black powder. It won't stick. Tinted embossing ink worked well with embossing black powder. At the bottom of the card, I used Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" border punch with crystal self-adhesive gems.
