The Check’s in the Mail

February 23rd, 2007

Happy Friday everyone!!!  Thanks for reading my brand new blog!  It just went live last night and I’m pretty excited about it.  🙂

I need to mail a check to a stamping friend and I can’t just stick in an envelope without a card.  So I decided to stamp a quick 6.25″ x 3.25″ card to fit in a check size envie I have.  Who am I kidding?  I can’t make a quick card!  I want to…I really do.  I just can’t.  I guess it goes along with my More is More philosophy – LOL!  This card took me about a half hour or so to complete.  I had to tear myslef away from my stamp table to keep from adding stickles or glitter or brads or rhinestones or something for crying out loud!  I still think it’s cute without that stuff, but I keep hearing my friend Taylor in my head saying “When you think you’re finished, just keep going.”


I love the Stampin’ Up! set Stampin’ Fun for Everyone and wanted it as soon as I saw it last year.  Other things kept taking priority though and it kept getting bumped off the order list.  I was finally able to justify buying it before my Watercolor Class last month by telling myself it would be a perfect set for my customers to use to practice watercoloring!  Good one, huh?  I haven’t used it much yet, but I do love it and am looking forward to using it lots more.  I think it will be great for cards to send to stamping buddies as well as for SCS RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness).

Here I paired it up with Big and Little Pieces in a color scheme of Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana.  The Banana strip was stamped with the SU Paisley background stamp in So Saffron ink (the Banana ink just doesn’t show up enough).  I pierced around the edge of the celery mat for a little more interest.  The focal image is popped up on foam tape.  Boy those Marvy circle, oval and scallop punched were one of the best stamping purchases I have ever made!  I use them on almost every card!  Well, I guess I’d better get that check in the mail!  Hope you have a great weekend!
