Some Tweet Cards for my Tweethearts

Some Tweet Cards for my Tweethearts

In the world of Twitter, it’s common for us girls to call each other “tweeties” or “tweethearts.”  Replacing a few of the first letters of anything with a “tw” turns it into Twitter-speak – or would that be Twitter tweets?!  When I got a cute “So Tweet” acrylic stamp last year from Boxer Scrapbook, I knew I’d make cards with it for a female Twitter friend or two.  I finally used the stamp last weekend and made these four cards for some really “tweet” friends of mine.  I was happy to use my single sheets of American Crafts patterned papers “Backyard Tweet” and “Backyard Cuckoo.”  High quality ink from Close to My Heart tied the image to the paper very nicely, I think.

The cards are fairly small: 4″ across by 3 1/8″.  I used a Fiskars punch for the scalloped edge and used my favorite thing – double-sided puffy mount tape – to bump out the stamp.  I meant to color the wing with a glittery marker but forgot!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

  1. Very very tweet! I love the cheerful colors and that they’re a bit different from traditional valentines. Awesome idea for tweet tweeters 🙂
