November 18 - Simple Birthday Card

Just in case you haven't noticed, I'm a sucker for simple cards! And what I love about the Circle Circus Stamp Set is that it allows you to make simple cards without much skill! It is absolutely one of my favorite sets in the catalog and I use it a ton.
This one is just simple craft cardstock, circles and birthday sentiment are stamped in black and I used the flower buttons from the catalog to put in the middle. With the colors this could easily be a "guy" birthday card even with those flower buttons and the rhinestones in the middle!
Have a VERY happy Wednesday everyone! November card night is tomorrow night so let me know if you'd like to attend - I have WONDERFUL cards planned, it will be a lot of fun! :)

November 1 - Transparency Card

Oooooh watch out! I have a new favorite! :)

These transparencies for cards from the Stampin' Up! catalog have been sitting in a box on my scrap desk for MONTHS. I kept thinking "I'll use them some day" and just haven't done it - until tonight. And now I'm in love.

There are 8 total (2 each of 4 designs) and fit A2 sized cards and they are only $5.95 which I think is a great deal since they are so fun to work with.
I had so much fun layering on top and underneath these (I attached them with super tape at the top to make a transparency "flap" over the front). And from now on I'm just going to be posting the supplies for my projects instead of the detailed instructions as well - most of my projects are pretty simple and I think the instructions are pretty much a given, but if you wonder how I did something and can't figure it out please just send me an email and I will try my hardest to get back to you in a timely manner on how I did it.
See you again tomorrow - hope you had a fantastic weekend! :)
