Oh Deer 2

I know I previously posted a card using FSJ's Oh Deer die that I was going to teach in my "It's A Guy Thing" masculine birthday card class.  The class went well but one lady was having issues getting things straight on the card.  Needless to say I gave her my card that I as making to show them the order of things and I took hers.  I ended up taking hers apart and remaking it once I got home.  It has a totally different look now.


I didn't do as much layering on this card but here's the original so you can see the difference...


By the time she got the Misti with the Happy stamp on it the stamp got repositioned and crooked so her text was way off.  I cut it out and used it on the base.


I triple layered the birthday die cut and added some black rhinestones from my stash.  I definitely got a different look but still a great card.

How have you "fixed" boo-boos?

Another Wednesday, Another Desk

Can you believe we have only 1 more Wednesday then it's March????  I feel like I lost 2 months.  And I still have to get started on taxes!  I did find an empty file box and do have all my stuff together, it's just a matter of getting a couple days free.  Every time I think I have one... hubby has something he needs done. Today I have to run for parts for equipment he's working on.  Oh well.  But today you get to see my desk and many others as we gather together at Julia's  Stamping Ground and link together.  Yep.  We'll see if hubby has something for me today..  Anyway, my desk...


I just tidied it a bit as I cut some paper for a class on Friday.  It's more of a technique class as the students bring their own paper and products to use.  I will bring some stuff such as my Platinum 6 and some dies, my card to work on, scoring tools, and maybe some stamps and inks... who knows.  I'm teaching the Gift Card in a Box.


Here are my samples.  I have my directions all ready to print out.  I really need to work on next month classes but hopefully next week.  I'm not even ready for our stamp club meeting this Saturday!  I don't have my mystery item project done much less started and I think I'll not even worry about it.  It's too far down on my priority list.

Well, my post is short today.  I hope you'll head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks.  I'll be looking throughout the day and probably tomorrow.

Easter Greetings

This card is one of the 4 projects included in the Easter Blessing Project Kit Plus bundle that Fun Stampers Journey has for purchase with the reveal of the new collection!  You can still purchase it by clicking on my link.



I used a big variety of FSJ inks as I stamped the various eggs from the new Fancy Egg stamp set (and Fancy Egg die set).


Wouldn't this card be fun to give with a little carrot treat box from my previous post??  So bright and cheery as Easter should be!

Easter Carrots in a Basket

I don't know if you watched or not but last Friday Fun Stampers Journey had a Live YouTube presentation of the new Easter Blessings collection.  I had purchased the Projects Plus bundle a while back and finished all 4 projects (finally).


I made the basket last year but it is perfect for these adorable little treat boxes!


I used the new Carrot Treat Box Die that is so fun to make!  The sentiment is from the new Faithfulness stamp set.

Three of the carrot die cuts and the die came in the package, I made the 4th from my stash.  I showed 1 to my class last Friday and they want to make this in our March class!  And 1 gal even ordered this die!

Are you getting ready for Easter?

Pink Butterfly Hello

Here's the 2nd card I made in my Feb. 13 video.  I LOVE my Large Die of the Month club through Spellbinders and the cost includes shipping! I shared a photo of the February set in my previous post so look back 1 day...


I basically followed Spellbinders YouTube video for this card as it has lots more great inspiration!


How do you like those layers!!  The Watermelon Fusion (hot pink) is UNDER the white layer.  The sparkle paper is from my stash.

This card is SO sparkle with the glitter Hello and the sequins.  Who wouldn't love this card!? (Well, maybe a guy wouldn't?)
