I saw a cool way to make rickrack using the Envelope Punch Board; you can see it here. I stamped mine with the letters from Kinda Eclectic, and I used the sunburst from that set too. The banner was stamped with Chalk Lines, and although you can’t tell, the blue star is glittered up!

Happy Saturday, peeps! I managed to pick up a yucky sinus infection and haven’t felt much like stamping! But I did see a fun sketch from As You See It this week:
I had some stampers over last night and I always like to have samples to show them, so I made up this uber-quick Christmas card using the Project Life Holiday Cheer set:
The stamps are fairly small, so I made this notecard-size. I added a quick little dazzle with a sparkly gel pen on each of the images, then mounted them on a strip of Cherry Cobbler and stamped the little Nordic image on each side of the strip:
I added the final sentiment in Garden Green and it was done! Easy peasy! Now be sure to stop back tomorrow for the Paper Players challenge!

Happy Wednesday, peeps! Wow, I can’t believe this month is almost over and I only have one more week to participate as a guest designer at Stampin’ Royalty! It’s been so fun! This week’s challenge is to use alphabet letters! I rummaged around in my retired DP and found just the right one!
Storytime not only had great background papers, it also had this cute little image, just right for a boy’s birthday! I made a little card with my File Tab die, stamped a couple of Verve sentiments on it and then cut out some ABCs in Real Red, So Saffron and Baja Breeze with the Little Letters dies. They looked a little plain so I cut another set in Basic Black to layer behind them like a shadow, and I like this look much better!
I added a little metal arrow clip and some baker’s twine:
and I had some vintage-looking DP that sort of fit the theme of this card, and used it to make a custom-sized envelope, since this card is about 7 1/2” x 4 1/4”!! That Envelope Punch Board is so handy!
I’ll bet there are lots of ways that you could incorporate alphabet letters into your creation, especially since it’s back-to-school time! Can’t wait to see what you create; share it with us at Stampin’ Royalty!
A few more birthday shots:
A new book bag for preschool!
I wonder what’s in here?
Sparkly new light-up sneakers, for one thing!
Enjoy your day!!!
