                        Whisper White card stock cut at 4" x 6"

                        Soft Sky Classic ink
                        Old Olive Classic ink

They are packaged in 6" x 8" cellophane bags with the top enclosed in a 2" x 6" strip of textured card stock from Michaels and stapled shut with green staples.  The sentiment is from a digital stamp made by a friend.  She made it of a quote from my mother in her memory.  I really appreciate her kindness in her special touches to the quote!!

Birthday card

     Here is a card made big enough for our preschool students to sign for their teacher.  This morning we are celebrating all the summer birthdays of our students.  The teacher I work with, also has a summer birthday so I made this card 51/2" x 81/2". The image and sentiment are from the Wetlands stamp set.  I sponged with Sahara Sand, Marina Mist and Soft Sky Classic ink pads and stamped the image 3 times across with black Stazon ink.  I also used black Stazon ink for the sentiment. The seashell sticker is from a set of stickers I bought for one of my scrapbooks.

Card set

     A friend/co-worker gave me a card stock pad with these designs so I decided to make her a card set made with these designs for her birthday this year.  It is a set of four cards and matching envelopes.  They are inside a 6"x 8" cellophane bag with the open end tucked inside the chevron printed piece.  I punched a couple of holes to thread the ribbon through and tied a bow with a black ribbon.  The sentiments are from the Wetlands stamp set (Stampin' Up) and are stamped on Whisper White card stock.  

Fruit card set

     This card set is made from some paper I had bought about a year or so ago before I became an Independent Stampin' Up demonstrator.   I decided to use it up.  The flaps on the envelopes have paper to match the cards.

Black and White Graduation card

     Here is a graduation card using the triple time stamping idea but instead of stamping, I embossed the two larger white rectangles together and separated them with a black mat.  The smallest white rectangle is stamped with a sentiment from Stampin' Up's Pure Gumption stamp set.  This stamp set has retired with the 2013 catalogue.  

Note pad holder

     This is a note pad holder I made for a birthday gift.  It is made to hold a 4" x 6" post it note pad.  The pen is a mini gel pen from Staples. 
Materials used: 
Bermuda Bay card stock
Crisp Cantaloupe card stock
Whisper White card stock
Silver embossing powder 
Pistachio Pudding Stampin'  write marker
Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin' write marker
Strawberry Slush Stampin' write marker 
Decorative dots embossing folder 
Spellbinders scalloped oval die cut. 

Wetlands bookmarks

     Here are 2 bookmarks I made for gifts.  I used the scalloped tag punch and Wetlands stamp set from Stampin' Up.  I also did some sponging. The bookmarks were embossed with the decorative dots embossing folder from Stampin' Up.
