Awash with Flowers

Lately I have had a need of sympathy cards. The floral stamp is part of a retired Stampin' Up set called Awash With Flowers.

It is a two-stamp set and, although the card looks easy to create, it did take me a while getting used to the Stamp-a-ma-jig and making sure I didn't mix the black with the pink.

Several co-workers expressed interest in receiving card gifts so I'm making extra cards for gifts. I think I'll use this stamp set for a little while longer.  I think it has possibilities to make a really cute card set.

Thank you for stopping by.  I have a craft fair every weekend til Christmas.  If you should see me at one of them, please say, Hi!!!

November tea swap & Xmas tags

I participated in the November tea swap that Fran hosts and made two of these tags for my partner Mary in MA. I hope she likes them. They went postal yesterday.

Holiday Tags and November's Tea Swap

Ooops, measurements on the bottom were incorrect.  I have since fixed it:

For November's Tea Swap, we had the option of sending two holiday tags with our tea bags. I choose to use the SU Top Note Die to create the base of my tags along with Papertrey's Winter Penguin that I received from a dear friend in California. Aren't these penguins adorable!!  The tree diecut is from a sizzix leaf diecut.  I just cut the bottom off.

Now to create the holder for my tags and tea.  I decided to stick with the penguins.  Here is the cover:

Open this A2 size card holder:

And open it again:

The holder is a 7.5" x 12" base scored up 2".  
The first section is scored at 4 1/4", the second section is scored about 8.5"

Thank you for stopping by!
