Happy Birthday… and Thanks for the Coffee Beans!
Today I’m working on a special project – eight identical-ish cards for 8 friends! I don’t want to post about it until they’ve been received in the mail, so I looked back at some of the photos I took of cards I’d made in late September. Here they are, for today’s blog post!
This is a “thank you for bringing back coffee beans for us from El Salvador” card for a friend of ours. I hope she liked the card as much as I enjoyed receiving her gift. I used acrylic coffee bean stamps from Inkadinkado and one of my favorite stamps from Impress Rubber Stamps. Oddly there is NOTHING printed on the teacup stamp so I can’t tell you who designed it. I chalked the edges of the cardstock I tore and used my new EK Success punch to get the strip of argyle.
I rediscovered rub-ons this year and I love them! I am not crazy about these silver glittery ones, but I bought them because I needed a birthday sentiment for my dear friend Rebecca‘s card. I feel like this picture doesn’t do the card justice because of the way the glitter rub-on photographed. Ask Rebecca – it’s a pretty card and she enjoyed it. 😉 I love the pearlized red and white background paper. It reminds me of vintage wall-paper!
Thanks for reading my blog, and have a great weekend! Remember to switch your clocks BACK one hour tonight… although many of us have electronics that automatically update.
