Blue Thanks

Hope you guys are having a good evening!!

A shout out to Micki in Ohio tonight!! Hey girl! Thanks for all the kind words!

I wanted to try a scalloped card with the sizzix tonight.

I took a sheet of cardstock and folded it in half. Then I positioned it on my large scallop die so that the crease was just a bit above the die so that it wouldn't cut the fold.

Oh yeah - I almost forgot - it's Pacific Point Blue. :)

Then I punched holes out of Pacific Point Blue with my 1/4" circle punch and glued those around the scallop.

I cut the smaller scallop into Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flower from Organic Grace. I colored it withiiilk555555555555555555\ (<--- that was Splotchy walking on
my +87777777iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiu k ( <---- KEYBOARD!!)8989898989/-+++++++

He has a lot to say!!!!

Okay - so I colored it with a blender pen and Pacific Point ink. Then I did the shadow in Summer Sun and Tangerine Tango.

Really simple and quick!!

I just love oddly shaped cards!

Now - a consumerism alert!!

Each Christmas, my family sends around a spreadsheet (yes, I'm not the only geek in the family!) with Christmas Lists, and tries to update it as we buy things and resend it.. it works okay, but theres still the one book that we all give two or more times each year! One year it was Jurassic Park, one year it was the Firm, one year it was Blindness.

So, in prepping for my birthday, i created my Amazon wishlist. I've used that for a while and heres how it works.

1. Log into your amazon account.
2. Create your wish list
3. Drag the "Add to Wishlist" icon to your toolbar - this is the magic I'm excited about.

The Add to Wishlist feature lets you go to ANY website - Stampin' Up!, Scor Pal, Blick Art Materials - whatever - and click Add to WishList and this item will go on your list.

You can then email a link to your list to anyone!

THEN - wait for it - you can check a little box that says "Avoid Spoiled Surprises" and the things that people have purchased for you will be hidden!!


Get yours today!

  3. something so simple can be so elegant and BE-U-TEE-FULLLLLLL!!! you're makin' me wish i'd gone with organic grace! great aquacoloring--i need lessons.

    love the amazon wishlist idea! i think this'll be the first year that we don't have a spreadsheet going around (yes, multiple geeks on bob's side of the fam), but i still like the idea that it'll go to ANY website! will be great for online ordering, whenever it comes.

    whatcha doin' this weekend? i'm workin' 8 on saturday, but the rest of the weekend is quiet.

  4. Hey!! I've been reading your blog for a few weeks. It's great!! Now for today, I had to say... now I'll have to buy the scallop #2 die!! I'm a demonstrator here in Austin too. Oh, and I love the 1/4" punch circles around the outside! Cool idea. Love your little kitties too.

  5. Lydia, your card looks wonderful! I am glad that you decided not to stamp-divorce me. That made me LOL!
    Have a great weekend!
    Hugs and grins
