Now for what's going on at Fond Memories. Kathy & Mary have been marking down lots of things for Crazy Days on August 16. One day when I was there for lunch, they had rubber stamps piled all over the floor while they rearranged some of the stamps. Other stamps were marked with a sticker to indicate 40% off. Lots of great stamps on sale! There will be lots of other great deals in all areas of the store. Add a note to your calendar: Go to Fond Memories for Crazy Days on August 16th!
We're still working on finalizing the card projects for the Workshop. We had a meeting last week to review our progress. Some projects are done, some are in the tweaking stage, and a couple are ideas waiting for stamps to arrive. We'll be making final designs soon so we can get all the supples ordered.
I did find time to make a couple cards over the past week. One was out of need......this sympathy card.
I used paper by Kimberly Poloson from Fiskars. I love the colors. I used Tattered Angels Autumn Leaves spray around the edges of the card. I also sprayed the flower to tone down it's original color. I pressed the little brown flower onto the Versamark pad & then into Ancient Tarnished Gold embossing powder by Ranger to add the gold highlights. I also embossed the brad & flower petal edges.
The 2nd card uses some new stamps by Paper Bag Studios. I love this little girl. Her expression is so captivating.
I stamped the image on Eclipse paper & tore the edges to make a mask. I stamped the girl on white paper in black ink. I applied the mask over her face. Then I stamped the background using the tile & alpabet stamps shown plus one other stamp not in the photo. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut the oval & mat. The red paper is also stamped with the same stamps.
