Getting ready for Scrapfest Kitchener ……Rose-Marie has many New Stamps… and some New Rosewood Dies…. boxes galore from many different companies. Lets just say we are bringing a lot of stuff.
It’s almost all packaged, ready to load tonight and then on the road to Kitchener in the morning….. early in the morning…. before coffee. Rose-Marie and Peter (the man with the hat), Sandy (the Olde Tyme Girl) and helping us this year is Betty (one of the Tuesday Class girls) and myself.
Everyone is tired of winter and this can easily be seen by the number of entries we had in our Spring Card Contest. Entries from our Tuesday Class members, local stampers, from out West and from the States….. but when it came to choose….. we had to pick and we narrowed it down to two cards.
They are both uniquely different in their makeup and creation. While Sue from Feneland Falls created a card soft and warm, using watercolour colour pens….. Cathy engineered a wonderful 3D flower pot card that allows a pull-out to let the flowers grow and display a message.
Since both Cards are so great, we decided to allow them both to win.
Congratulations Cathy of Campbellford, ON and Sue of Fenelon Falls, ON our Spring Card winner(s). You both will have a $20.00 credit added to your account for Instore/Online purchases.
It’s Spring (okay so it’s actually a few days away) and this is just a reminder that Card Contest for Spring deadline is only a few days away. For details check out the “Classes/Contests” on the website http://www.FrogsWhiskersInk.com(Click Here)
Or at least everybody who entered the Valentines Day Card Contest. Remember that you need to use at least one Frog’s Whiskers Ink stamp in your design. Winner of the contest for February is Helen of Toronto with her Card…. “I Love You”
This is a case of where less worked best. The main heart stamp L705 Lace Heart was used as the centre piece and C96 I Love You was stamped inside the heart. A layered strip to each side with punched out hearts completed the look to make a perfect Guy Card.
So Congratulations Helen you have a Online/Instore Credit of $20.00. Watch for the next Card Contest due March 20, Themed First Day of Spring ….. check the website for details.
Project P3 – Love is…. Looking in the Same direction… filled with Hearts and the ever watchful Cupid. This Card is easy to make but “fabulous” in looks. For the one in you life, going in the same direction.
G875 Love is Not
H872 Ribbon Heart
C875 Playful Hearts
Paper:- dark red, plum, black and white. All images are stamped in black ink on the white paper and coloured.
The card is dark red cardstock 7” x 12” folded to make a 7” x 6” card. Cut the plum cardstock 6.75” x 5.75” and glue or tape onto the card. Stamp the Ribbon Heart onto the white cardstock, colour, trim and layer directly onto the right hand side of the card. Stamp and colour Cupid, layer onto plum and attach on top of the Ribbon Heart. Trim a piece of black cardstock to fit into the remaining space leaving a plum border showing. Trim the white cardstock to fit on top, stamp the Playful Hearts in a random pattern, colour.
Attach a burgundy ribbon around the middle of the white cardstock and tack in place before you glue the heart stamped cardstock onto the black cardstock. Stamp Love Is not Lost onto white cardstock, trim and layer onto plum. Centre and glue in place as shown to the sample.
Project P2 – A Perfect Day – What better card to make than one that excites the joy of a Perfect Day.
A calm breeze, soft falling snow or gentle rain drops on the stone steps….. look around for that Perfect Day… better yet just make a Card to capture it all.
