Thank You For Your Service.. Hero Mail cards

I made one of these cards.. the idea was from a card that a fellow stamper named Abby C. did last week.

I cut enough to make 10 more cards. I don't have a lot of the star paper. Its from a 12 x 12 patriotic paper pad I got at Hobby Lobby.

A batch of HERO MAIL cards.. and a tip for useful scraps

I started on these earlier today..  I made one card, liked it, so I cut enough to make 12 more.   I stamped the stars in yellow after the first card.. I noticed the ink pad laying on my desk and thought I'd try it and I liked the way it looked.

These are not really hard to make.. after cutting everything, stamping everything.. I just made an assembly line and they were done before I knew it.

I wanted to share a tip on some scraps.   The Star panel measures 1" x 5" and I was cutting these from a 12 x 12 piece so at after cutting the 5" pieces, I was left with a 2" piece on each strip...  I still used them.. just put them on the ends of the red layer and when you put the navy  blue die-cut on top that has the sentiment.. you can't even tell that it doesn't go all the way across.  I do this a lot when I have smaller pieces.. if something is being layered on top of it.. I'll cut something in half to "stretch the paper" to fill the space.

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!

Working on Hero Mail cards for upcoming event

I made one card and then cut a bunch of stuff to make 12 more.

26 of these babies all done.. Those Who Bring Sunshine...

Wowzers!!!    I just finished up the last of the yellow card stock that I had in this shade.. I have other shades of yellow and tomorrow.. I might make some more.. or move on to something else.  I am trying to get a box filled to send to Afghanistan and I am probably at least half if not three fourths there.

My fingers on my left hand, especially my thumb and pointer finger, are a pretty yellowish orange color.. haha.  

I had a blast making these today.

Those who bring sunshine....

I recently purchased the stamp set that this stamp is in. It's from Technique Tuesday and is called Bring On The Sun by Ali Edwards. I have wanted it forever and finally bought it from my favorite online store AMAZON

I used some Basic Grey papers, the sun is an MFT Die-namics die.

I made a few more of the cards..  they were fun to make.. and oh so easy.

Starburst cards

I seen a video (video/link below) earlier today showing an easy way to make Starburst cards... I have finished one and thought I would make some more.

We have DirectTV and via DirectTV I can watch YouTube videos .. LOVE IT!!  I lay in bed and watch craft videos late at night or early in the morning.  Yesterday morning I seen this video, but originally posted this via my phone and didn't have the link to the video.      I hopped on my laptop this morning so that I could share it with you.   It's a video by Dawn Olchefske.          

Here is a link to her website.. she has lots of other videos.

**The sentiments used on these cards:
Thinking of You is from a Hero Arts set called Sending Smiles

Sending A Big Thank You is from a Papertrey Ink set.

Assorted cards I made today

I am still working on the big stack of metallic paper that I already have layered onto a black layer.

I made these super easy cards today.

The sentiments on the cards are:

Thank You Very Much:  Woodware Craft Collection "Double Thanks"
The World Would Be Boring Without You:   Penny Black "Tweet Tweet"
Thinking of you from miles away:   MFT "You Move Me"

Blessings~ Pam

Let Us Be Grateful..... cards

I made the card with all the coloring last night before bed and this morning while chatting on the phone, I did the one below, with the spotlighting coloring.

I used a Papertrey Ink set a friend let me borrow (thanks Beverly).

I was asked what Copic markers I used and thought I'd add that info. I didn't write 
them down, but do think that these are the ones I used:

flowers:  BV000, BV00, BV02, BV04 BV13

leaves:  G03, G05, G09

around image:  BG000

Thanks So Much embossed cards

These went together really quickly.  I already had the metallic papers layered on the black cardstock.. so I ran each one through the BigKick in an embossing folder.. attached the sentiment panels with Dimensionals (already had them stamped and put together as well).. attached them to card bases and they were done... super quick and easy.. and they are really pretty in person.

Lot of 10 "Sending BIG Hugs" cards

I just finished up these cards.. in the box they go to be sent to Afghanistan.

Sending BIG Hugs.. Pooh & Tigger card

A while back I bought some Disney embossing folders and dies at AC Moore.  I opened up the Pooh one and my daughter asked if there was a Tigger one, so I got this folder out to play with.

I made this card for a soldier to send home to a loved one.

Sentiment is from an MFT set, pattern paper is Stampin' UP!.

I have a stack of the metallic papers that are already mounted on a black layer, sitting on my desk that is 4" tall.. just waiting to be used.
